Beautiful!

Every year we come here when we visit the area. They always have a large following waiting at the door! It is an amazing experience. My daughter and I always order the lazy lobster and the house potato. The food is consistent and the staff is amazing and fast!

When in Rome... It's a steakhouse and that's what I would suggest. We entertained a local client and all had the same thing. The Delmonico steak was excellent and their signature potato was very good. They had a good selection of draft beers and a good wine selection. We visited in spring and during the week and did not have... More

Very good service. Food . acceptable. But very popular so arrive early or book a table. No place to have drink if you are waiting for a table. Prices reasonable and steaks done well.

We had three of the best meals ever. It was a first visit for my two friends and they were so pleased they plan on coming back with their families. We always get a great meal at The Steakhouse.

From the drinks (sangria and Jack and coke) to the steaks, our meal was absolutely delicious. NY strip and a filet mignon that melted in my mouth. The restaurant is housed in a big barn, with a collection of model ships displayed on the rafters. Next time we will ask for window seat that looks out over the water!

I've never had a bad meal at the Steakhouse! Try the steak tips with the baked stuffed lobster tail!

Don't come here unless you have nothing to do for at least 1-1/2 hrs and like waiting for a table. I called as we were visiting the area to get more information on reservations as we had a large group of people, and was rudely told " we don't take reservations for any size group, you just have to wait!"...

My family has been coming to the Steakhouse since they first opened twenty-five years ago. And I've been coming here since I was a toddler, and even then I was ordering steak tips and loving it! I can confidentially tell you that the Steakhouse has not changed at all. If anything, it's gotten better.... The best time to go is... More

We have traveled all around the country and have eaten at some of the best steak houses over the years, including Burns, Shula's, Ruth's Chris, etc. The Steakhouse on Rte 1 in Wells, Me. is the best. There is usually a 30-45 minute wait but it is worth it. They are right up the road from my favorite seafood restaurant,... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant but it has gone downhill. I just waited an hour and a half for raw meat to be served and when we complained we were treated with no respect. The manager publicly embarrassed us and acted like we were looking for a free meal. Such a shame.
