We have been coming up to Maine for 30+ years and always enjoyed the fresh Lobster, Haddock and clam strip dinners. For the first time we decided to try The Steak House in wells, formally Lord's restaurant (28 years ago). Let me start off with the positive. The entire staff worked their butts off serving customers, especially the ones that... More

Great steakhouse. The wait time was 65 minutes, but it was well worth the wait. We both had shrimp cocktail and filet mignon and they were excellent. Great service too. Definitely will go back again when in Maine.
