I am not a huge fan of ordering steak at a restaurant because I can be easily turned off from a piece of steak by chewy fat, gristle, it being too underdone or too overdone. I never have that issue here and I think it is literally the only place I really ever order steak. It's always cooked perfectly and... More

My family visits Wells just about every year and have eaten at The Steakhouse many times. The food and service are always very good and as others say in their reviews, a wait is expected. It seems this year that, even more than in the past, this restaurant has "success syndrome" -- meaning that they perceive themselves to be SO... More

Whether you want a nice steak or a broiled seafood dish, the steakhouse is the best place to eat in Wells.. At least in my opinion! Everything is fabulous from the bread they serve you, to the amazing soups and of course the lobster stew, and then the mouth watering entrees you cannot go wrong here! I had the stew... More

We have eaten here several times and have never had a bad meal. While noisy and always crowded, the food is worth the wait as it doesn't disappoint. And wait u will. Even getting there before 5:00pm, we waited an hour for a table...but we don't mind. It's worth it

We have eaten here many times over the past 15+ years. Food is excellent. Steaks are cooked perfectly, prices reasonable. They do not take reservations so be prepared to wait an hour. You can put in your name and sit in the bar area, or just come back in a reasonable amount of time. There is a reason it is... More

I had called this restaurant the week before we went to Wells and was given a reservation. When we arrived at the restaurant we saw about 75 people waiting--not a good sign. We went to the Hostess to check in and she was quite rude and she and other lady with her said that they didn't take reservations. I gave... More

Went to The Steakhouse while vacationing in Wells over the 4th of July. We were a party of 8 and got there before the doors opened as you cannot make a reservation. We only waited outside for about 15 minutes then went straight in. We were given a round table upstairs which works great for a group. The food was... More

We were told the wait was 70-75 mins. only 45, worth every minute. Filet Mignon is perfectly cooked and delicious. Don't forget to try the baked beans, they are delicious

Having eaten here many times over the last 20+ years I've never once had a bad meal here. The food is perfectly cooked, well seasoned and the menu offers a great variety of options; even for those who prefer not to eat steak. The service is always great and the value for your money is excellent. Portions are generous and... More
