“Amazing. Will return!”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

Went to Boon with my wife several times over the summer, the owners and staff made us feel like family, the atmosphere is a blast.

The food is unreal. The "cove cottage" burger is delicious! I also recommend the lobster bisque and any of there pizzas.

Now the beers...amazing. Try the sampler- they are all worth a taste.

Definitely the gem of the ogunquit wells area!

“Very good food and excellent value”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

The meal was truly excellent. It is a low-key casual atmosphere and nice. I heard the pizza was very good, however, living in NY we can eat good pizza anytime. I began with the spinach salad, which was one of the best salads I've had in a long time, very fresh! The lobster mac & cheese was absolutely delicious and served nice and hot. Don't miss out on their french fries either. They were fresh, crispy and cooked to perfection. My wife really enjoyed her baked chicken, too, which had a nice tasty rub on it. Just know if you order their hot-spicy chicken wings, they are really hot-spicy. I was very pleased and I look forward to returning!!!

“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!
