Good Food

You have choices on their menu. Good family atmosphere, with good food. A Diner like feel and look, with personable staff. You will not go hungry and enjoy a good meal, without breaking the bank. They have a small area with toys from yesteryear, to gaze at. You will enjoy your meal.

This restaurant serves a wonderful Sunday Buffet. Have been there twice and enjoyed each visit. We missed it our last visit to Wells, ME because we had to leave before Sunday rolled around but definitely make it a stop when we are there on a Sunday.

We have been coming to this restaurant for many, many years and have always enjoyed our meals and service. We now currently take family members here for "Sunday Brunch" which we find to be excellent for the price charged, there's a wide variety of breakfast goodies to choose from, like hash browns, pastries, breads for toast, cereal, fruits, even a...

the place across the street was full to the gills with an hour wait time, we were hungry and said let's try the place across the street, the Bull and Claw is awful. Processed food at an overly pretentious price. Some people had said they "use to be good". They are not anymore. The pasta sauce is watered down and... More

The sign out front lured us in. After all, a buffet in Maine for $8.99, how could you go wrong. We found the fare to be the same as any $ 8.99 buffet in the country. It had all the traditional buffet items except they did have a fellow making omelets to order which was the best part of the... More

When annually visiting Maine and if we get tired of Lobsta the B&C has always been consistent with their prime rib. B&C has been here for a while directly across from the Maine Diner may not look busy and that's OK food is good. Service is always friendly attentive and quick. We'll be coming back as usual, ask for our... More

MY sister and I recently visited this restaurant and can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it. Our server, Joe, was both helpful and charming and only added to the already fabulous dining experience. We would and do recommend the Bull and Claw to anyone visiting southern Maine.

On our way back from NH, had a Portland Dine Around card so we decided to try it. 1980's original decor, plastic plants everywhere. We asked the hostess how this was- being our first time there and she answered "It's ok."- and it was just ok. Our waitress was distracted and never offered us bread- we asked another waitress for...

We stopped because my husband wanted a lobster roll. The sign said lobster roll so in we went. The service was excellent and so was the food. Sixties music was playing over the loud speaker and I was singing alone with it. We had a wonderful experience in Freeport and Lunch on the way back to New Hamshpire was excellent... More
