This was our first time at this restaurant, and I loved it. The food was excellent and the portions were large. A lot of different items to choose from too. Staff was friendly and the atmosphere was fun. I would definitely come back here. We went on the off season and it was still busy, so I am sure it... More

Visit was ok. We had to wait 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. Our steaks were delicious but I found it to be pricey.

I would call this restaurant good, not average or very good...but unfortunately that's not a choice here so I went with average. This restaurant jettisoned me back to seventies when I used to go to dinner with my parents in places like this. If you're looking for a nouveau menu with organic beef or free-range chickens you're at the wrong... More

This was our first visit to The Steakhouse in Wells, Maine and was recommended to us by a friend. We knew it had to be good when people were lined up in the parking lot at 3:30 pm for the 4:00 pm dinner opening! We both order steak and it was cooked to perfection. It was delicious as were the...

This was our first time at The Steakhouse. It was recommended by many friends and they were correct. The steaks were great, done to perfection. I had the duck, which was also excellent. Our server was very good. The drinks were top notch.

Very disappointing. Went there tonight and ordered fried pickles as an app. That was good but you really can't mess that up. Next we order. So I got the surf and turf with the stuffed lobster tail and my partner just wanted some chili to start. The waitress hesitated and then tells us we are not at the 8 dollar... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner. It was an hour wait, but we decided to stay because they had a bar serving drinks right next to wear you put your name in. It was extremely convenient and they had a large area down stairs to sit and wait and watch the game. Drinks were good as well. When... More

We have been going to the Steakhouse for over 20 years and it is always a good meal. The steak is a great cut and cooked perfectly. And I have a weakness for their lobster tails-always good.

After a recommendation from some locals, my husband and I decided to go to dinner at The Steakhouse the night before we left Maine to return home. Be prepared to have almost an hour wait unless you get there prior to opening time (4:30pm). We had a 45 minute wait but let me say that it was well worth it.... More
