Our party of 4 was served by a great waitress who knew we were only there once about 5 years ago. She was so nice and informed us all about the menu. Food came out fast and hot and made to perfection. 5 years between was too long on visits......

We arrived around 8:20 and had a 15 minute wait for table which is fine. We were told if we had come at 6pm, there was a 3 hour wait! Once we were seated we didn't see a waitress for 10 minutes, and then another 6 minutes for our water to come over. We had already decided what we wanted... More

Just like everyone says, if you want to get in, I would go to stand in line about 3:30 because it does get busy fast. The food was good, typical steak house. The waitress was quick and it is a great view to look out and see the ocean. Would go back.

We spent 2 weeks in Wells in August. We couldn't resist to go twice to the Steakhouse. You can't book ahead of time so the wait can take a while. However it's really worth the wait. It's really affordable for a steakhouse. The quality of the steak and seafood is great. The desserts are our of this world and gigantic... More

The wait was too long & the dinner did not justify the wait time. Had the surf & turf, the lobster meet was tough, however, will say the service was good.

Best Ribeye Steak ever. Don't know why I look at the menu because this is what I always order. Of course we have to start off with the best onion rings. Have been going there for over 15 years, sometimes we just take a day trip from Western Massachusetts just to have dinner there. Something for everyone, have been taking... More
