This restaurant is a must!

We go to the Ogunquit Playhouse about 3-4 times a year, and we always eat at the Steakhouse in Wells. The wait can be a bit long, about an hour unless you arrive within 20 minutes of it opening, but the food is well worth it. My favorite is the steak tips and scallops combo.

The Steakhouse does not take reservations. We went on a Sunday night and waited about 35 minutes. The alcoholic drinks so/so, but the steaks were delicious! Well worth the wait. They offer two sides with the steak. One is a potato that comes whipped in a ramekin dish which is to die for. All I can say is bring your... More

It is a long wait, but it is set up to appease people who are waiting. Plenty of room to sit &wait and very conveniently placed bar. Wine prices very reasonable. Food was awesome & reasonably priced. Cooked perfectly. Awesome waitress. Get there at 4:30 on the dot if you don't want to wait.

The restaurant is very big. We sat on the third floor and had a good experience. Most of the food was good, the buffalo chicken was not spicy at all. Overall I'd go back.

The wait was long. (70 minutes) but we had a few drinks and chatted with other patrons. Once we were seated our waitress was awesome and the food was great. All in all a great experience.

Went for dinner with wife. Great steakhouse vibe, great food at a reasonable price. 2 sides offered with each steak. I had the sirloin, cooked to perfection. Wife had the filet, which was undercooked, but they took it back with no issues and was very good when it came back out.

Looooong wait. Crowded building. Long wait for the food to arrive. Limited menu. I was very surprised to see no Prime Rib on the menu. Steak was okay. I won't be back

The wait is long, like 45-90 minutes.. Very nice inside, the bar is great...the food is amazing but quite pricey...You have to eat there at least once when you go to Wells!!
