“Family vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Our family of 4 flew up from NC for a weeks vacation in Wells Maine. The service and food hit the spot. We ate there twice and both times were absolutely amazing. The owner and his wife both came to our table to make sure we were happy with everything. The Onion rings are massive and they don't skimp on the amount they bring also. The Ham burgers are fantastic. I would call them steak burgers!!!! There is nothing i can say negative about BIA. Thank you Phil and Tina for such a great time.

“Best Food in Wells”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We actually stayed in Captain Phil and Tina's Guest House. They are super people and are very hard workers. They leave you feeling like you've always known them. The food was the best overall that we found on our recent trip. The burgers are top notch and are like no burger we've ever eaten. The pizza is also great. Well for that matter the fries rock and all the food we ate was great. And great value! You'll want to go back!

“Wedding Reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

We had 39 guests for a rehearsal dinner...Tina planned everything for us...simply perfect. The food rocked it...our families couldn't say enough positive about the clam chowder, porcini stuffed ravioli, baked haddock and chicken marsala. Stephen, the other owner and his dad Phil just made everything special for us. Grammy Terry was the best hostess ever. We have such lasting memories of an awesome evening with family and friends, which will forever including the Boon Island Family...
Anyone looking for a great dinner, drink, awesome service or a place to go to celebrate a special occasion...you can't go wrong with Boon Island.-
Cheers

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

My friend raves about their bar menu. He was soo right. Their 5 cheese pizza was spot on and their fish tacos were a value and delicious! Service was johnny on the spot and their knowledge of the drink menu was great! A great stop on route 1.
