Delicious Dinner

We went to The Steakhouse during our girls' weekend in Maine. The food was wonderful. I had the seafood casserole, and I wish I were there now to get it again! Don't miss it!

The food was very good. But it was very noisy and very crowded. We had to wait 45 minutes for a table and we arrived soon after they opened. They do not take reservations, this is why we haven't been back.

Great food and atmosphere. Large variety of steaks, pastas and seafood. Make sure you get there early or go later there is always a long wait but it is well worth it.

The only thing superb was the service. Quick and on the ball. My sister in law had to wait for her steak and was brought a bowl of soup in the mean time. There is usually an hour wait but there are 2 seating areas and bars to accommodate you if you wait. The food is ok to meh. This... More

This is a must, each time we are in Wells. We always get there at 4:20 for their 4:30 opening. In season, the line was already into the parking lot. It's pretty large inside, but once it's full, you'll have a loooong wait for the next seating. Our "usual" is the filet mignon with broiled scallops. Dessert is always their... More

We were told we would have to wait a long time but only waited 10 minutes. The meal was good and ample portions. Be sure to go hungry. The steak was excellent and service very good.

This is a great place to eat the steak and sea food are excellent. Every time I am at the Wells beach I have to plan on having dinner there. Have to get there early if you want to eat an early dinner people are lined up waiting to get in by 4 pm.

We FINALLY got into this restaurant which is ALWAYS packed when we travel to ME. Ample menu, great service, very good food. Can't remember exactly what we had but we were pleased. We will be back again when we are ready for an early dinner.

This is one of the best steakhouses anywhere. But you may expect a waiting line no matter what time you get there. We arrived at 3:50 pm for a 4:30 opening and there were people in front of us. However, the wait is worth it.

This restaurant is a very popular one - you usually have to wait unless you get there right when it opens, but the wait is worth it. It has fantastic food and very friendly staff. I would say the only draw back is when you have to wait (our wait was 50 minutes) the area in which you wait is... More
