Maine's summer steak

The Steakhouse in Well's Maine is only open during the summer, but people pack the place from opening till close. Nice décor, reasonable prices and good steak is the reason why. My rib eye steak wasn't as marbled as much as I like, but was very tasty. Comes with potato and a big salad for $20.

Yes the steaks are very good but nobody will care that the management is not customer friendly. They are watching you and determining if you are the kind of customer they want, but what do they care they have more customers than they can handle. I have been coming here for 25 years but have never been treated like I... More

Had not vacationed in Maine n twelve years, came back this year and have eaten here twice. Long wait but worth every minute. Vegetable barley soup is amazing, steak is outrageous, seafood is excellent. Steak with crab cakes is an absolute delight. Not too expensive so it is an amazing value. Don't miss it!

While visiting Wells Beach we went to The Steakhouse with a friend who lives in the area. It was a Sunday night. We arrived at 5:45 pm. We were told it would be about a 1 hour wait. This is a restaurant with 3 floors. An hour seemed on the long side but our friend said it would be worth... More

This place has excellent steak! Do yourself a favor and go mid week because they are deservedly busy other times. Get ready for a treat!

Would describe this place as consistently great. We look forward to going there pretty much every time we are in Wells for a few nights. It's not fancy or intimate. It's full of families on vacation in the summer, and the energy they bring. You're going to wait a while to be seated unless you get there before they open.... More

Got there 8 minutes before it opened at 4:00, line was already across the parking lot. They opened promptly at 4 got people seated quickly. Appetizers were a little slow in coming out but very good, mussels and boneless buffalo wings. Salads we're fresh. Dinners were a mix of lazy man lobster and sirloin steaks. The wine flowed, the waitstaff... More

Had a wonderful ribeye steak! The food was very good. Very long wait, which was surprising because of the size of the place and seeing how fast they move people through. Go early or late.

Steakhouse is without a doubt the best restaurant in the Southern Maine area.We have been going there for at least 15 years and we have never had a bad meal.We will not go to Maine without going to the Steakhouse at least one time. The food is exceptionally good, the service is excellent. The only downside is the long wait... More

As others have mentioned be prepared for a wait. Tonight it was an hour wait but we had a drink and waited upstairs next to the bar. Split an appetizer of homemade onion rings (large portion) and the warm rolls were so good too. Had the ribeye with a fresh garden salad and my husband got the New York Strip... More
