If you are looking for steak in particular then this is a great place. You pay for it but I have always found them to be good. There is a bit of a wait in the summer so go early.

Great steak! This is one of your touristy "go to" places when visiting Wells. In the summertime - the place is just packed. However - it is worth the wait if you can deal with loud tourists. Don't expect to have a nice quiet dinner here but it is a steakhouse so hopefully that wasn't you initial expectation. Like your... More

We made yet another visit here before they close for the season. We come to Maine several times each year and every time we go to the Steakhouse for at least one meal. Over the years we have probably been 30 times and only had a bad meal one time. In my opinion if you exceed my expectations 29 out... More

A friend recommended The Steakhouse knowing we were coming up to the Ogunquit area. We were not disappointed. We were told there would be a 20 minute wait.....and it was not a minute over. Our server came over immediately and our drinks were served. Everyone there was so friendly. The bread was warm and delicious. Our salad was fresh and... More

The food is always great and there is something for everyone. My son likes his beef and this is THE place to go. Of course mom, aka me, loves the creme brûlée.

The food was great and so was the price. The only negative was the wait told it would be 1 hour and it was 1 1/2 hour. It was a very busy Saturday night but it was worth the wait

Each year, on my birthday, I dine at The Steakhouse with my wife and my daughters (14 and 10). Let me tell you directly that this place is not cheap. $135 before tip. The waitstaff is always great, so add 20%, at least. I don't worry about the cost because I realize it's pricey, but the meal is always worth... More

Great atmosphere. Busy happening place, even during off and shoulder seasons. Steaks cooked to perfection. Just need more onsite parking.
