Due to Covid-19, the outdoor seating area was set up in the parking lot so we didn't get the view we were hoping for, but the food was delicious, and our server, Wayne, was excellent.

Delish and speedy service. We grabbed dinner to go and everything was ready in 15 minutes. The lobster salad was delicious as was the fresh and crisp shrimp cocktail. My 11 year old son had the lobster Mac and Cheese and was very happy.

We got takeaway food from here twice during our stay in Wells. The food was consistently tasty and well-prepared. The prices were reasonable and the service friendly and prompt, even involving smiling delivery of our order to our car in the rain.

This restaurant is all about the view. The service was excellent. The waiters were wearing masks. The seafood was good. I felt that the calamari was a bit greasy and heavy for me, so I had a rough night to follow (my problem), but it...More
