This is a terrific family oriented restaurant with a selection for all but specializing in steak and live lobster. It's a friendly venue with a super fresh full salad bar and fast friendly service. Try the lobster or chopped sirloin they are both good and be sure to try the garlic bread. Enjoy!

My husband and I enjoy delicious food from an extensive menu, along with a fantastic soup and salad bar every time we vacation in the Wells area. The service is impeccable. Denise gives us A-ONE service, along with her coworkers.

Went for the breakfast buffet. We had to wait to be seated. Also, the inside is runned down. Needs a good Restaurant redo. They say that they have a great bloody Mary drink. So my husband and myself had one each. It had to much horseradish. We had the buffet the eggs where terrible and the bacon and sausage was... More

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your $8.99 Sunday Breakfast Buffet on Columbus Day Weekend. It's a very, very busy Sunday on 3 day holiday weekends, like Columbus Day. I can appreciate your anxiety about having to wait to be seated but... there were 400 guests served that morning. Sometimes we just have to be a little patient. With so... More

We had the ribs and the prime rib. Both were excellent- with decent, but not piggish servings. The ribs had a a really nice glaze, and the prime rib arrived perfectly medium. The vegetable was carrots, which were the small carrots, not mushy at all. The fries were good, but undistinguished. The baked potato was perfect. We had the molten... More

This hidden gem is always being found. Although it's been here since the 70's! The steak is good! The food overall is good. I love the atmosphere in the bar with the lights. Great staff!

If you are looking for a place with Maine décor and fancy dishes on the menu, this is good. The waitstaff was shorthanded when we went, and they were trying to train busboys to wait table. Not the best thing on a busy night. The lobster pie was rubbery (over cooked). There are better places to eat, skip this one.

The only meal we have ever had here is the lobster. Reasonable prices and you got lobsters with your choice of a potato, rice or fries and coleslaw. We usually get the single or double lobsters and they are delicious. Good service. We have been going there for more years then we care to admit to. They offer all types... More

Our hotel clerk recommended Bull and Claw, as my husband loves meat and I love fish. The mussels appetizer was wonderful served with great tasting bread. The salad bar had a large selection, although the greens were a tiny bit wilted. He had the Cajun rubbed prime rib, which he very much enjoyed. I had the Crab crusted salmon, which... More

Our group always goes to the Sunday breakfast buffet but have never eaten any other time. Today we decided to have lunch. What a pleasant surprise. Their soup and salad bar is quite extensive and at $3.49 with a meal is a bargain. All of us enjoyed our choices and my husband said the lobster roll is one of the... More

Went there with friends and we were very happy with our meal and the price was right! It was very busy but we were well taken cared of. Would go there again when we are in Maine!
