“Don't Tell Anybody”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

We have been summer residents of Wells for four years and finally got to this little place. It doesn't look like much but what a surprise. A nice interior, a nice bar, good service, and the food was was good and well-priced. It is not a bar scene per se, but a little fun was had. Only criticism is that the menu is limited, but we had no problem finding something (lobster bisque was awesome).
We will return.

“Beer, Service and Food”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

BIA is a must stop for anyone living in or passing through Maine. The food is very good, the service is awesome and they have a diverse tap line. Just a great place for a bite and beer in Southern Maine!

“Well worth the trip”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

Heard several comments about Boon Island Ale, and had to try it myself. It was more than I expected, with the food (lobster mac & cheese, burgers, and appitizers)
simply delicious. While being fairy busy, the crowd was having a real fun time as the owner circulated among the patrons injecting humor. We hated to leave, but make no mistake, we will be back very soon.
Again, out thanks to the owners for great food and a fun time!
