Located in Wells, The Bull N' Claw offers the highest quality seafood and steaks at the most reasonable prices with portions that will make you smile after every scrumptious bite! Over the past 36 years, we've become the destination for visitors to New England to enjoy deliciously fresh local seafood including our famous cape porpoise lobster, always prepared to order. It doesn't get any fresher or any better than Bull N' Claw.

We have often visited Bull & Claw with family to partake of the Sunday Brunch. The selections are vast and very complete, and the food is fresh. Also at $8.99 per adult is is quite reasonably priced.

After a walk in Kennebunk, my husband and I stopped here for a mid-afternoon lunch. It's a property that has been around a long time and the interior looked like it needs to be updated.

Nice family restaurant. Nice salad bar and varied menu. Nightly specials. The young waiter we had was also serving in the National Guard and was very personable. Plenty of parking.

Although the Bull n Claw is an older restaurant, don't ever judge a book by its cover, as the seafood is the best in the area. Always fresh and oysters especially tender and sweet.

Tried out the Breakfast Buffet and it was surprisingly good. The price was more than fair, to boot! There was an omelet station with fresh ingredients and the staff was friendly.

We had lunch at the Bull and Claw - I had soup and salad bar and my wife had a single lobster. The Italian Wedding soup was a bit overcooked and my wife's baked potato looked like it was reheated from the night before. The salad bar was fresh and my wife loved her lobster. It is a good stop...
