“Even in a downpour, great experience!!”

Congdon's After Dark
Ranked #28 of 76 Restaurants in Wells
Price range: $2 - $15
Description: Congdon's After Dark is the only food truck park in New England operating on a daily basis during the summer. We offer a convenient dinner option for our summer residents and guests, with up to 10 food trucks serving from 4pm until late. The summer of 2017 was the inaugural season of “Congdon’s After Dark.” It included a group of three food trucks located in the parking lot of Congdon’s Doughnuts Family Restaurant, operating after the normal breakfast/lunch service. The season was such a success that we decided to expand the footprint and scope. In 2018, we will host as many as 10 food trucks on a nightly basis during the summer. We also added a new covered patio, which will provide alcohol and beverage service in the evenings (our “beer garden”), as well as additional seating. In a bustling town where the dinner options are somewhat limited, Congdon’s After Dark not only provides a unique dining experience, it will be the only regular assembly of food trucks in New England!

What a great idea! My family of about 20 people went to the food trucks last week and we had a wonderful time. It was walking distance from our hotel and was a great change from dining in a restaurant. Plenty of food options for everyone and great music. It was a wonderful fun atmosphere. The sky did open up with thunder storms however but we all went under the tent and the staff made it very accommodating with additional seating inside the restaurant. We will definitely visit on vacation again next year!

Fun alternative to cooking in or committing to a sit down restaurant and the bar addition is awesome!

This is the first time that we stopped at Congdon's after dark and found it another reasonable place to eat after Congdon's is closed.

What a nice variety of cuisines and good quality in everything we tried. Korean, seafood, burger venues all sampled. Fresh and tasty with good spice. Indoor or outdoor seating, we chose the bar area of the donut shop with an excellent draft beer offering including a dark choice that not all craft beer vendors stock this time of year. Attention to cleanliness and safety with good roping off of pedestrian paths adjacent to the busy parking area. And Congdons was giving donuts away the evening we were there, YUM!

What a great way to end a day at the beach. There is a great variety of food trucks including gluten free potatoes. Feels like a county fair.
