“Wonderful Food and Staff”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant is amazing!! From the appetizers to dessert is wonderful. I highly recommend extra butter with your steak order. It is the best ever. The restaurant is a little pricey but totally worth it.

“The Best Filet around”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is one of our favorite places to eat, when int he Wells area. Their filets never dissappoint and the blue cheese butter that served with it is to die for! Also the baked beans are the best.

“Good Food”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Great service for a restaurant that is packed during high season. Food is well prepared, served hot and the waitstaff is attentive to your needs. Don't expect Ruth's Chris quality, but this is a local steak house that serves a nice salad, good steak and sides. I enjoy the steak Boston baked beans and the steak house potato. Add a salad and your more then full. Drinks are good. Hint: in high season, go early and fight the older crowd or get off the beach, drop everyone off at the cottage and while they are showering, go put your name in. Put everything away from the beach, shower and the. Drive down and find parking next door at the car museum or at the strip mall next door. Walk in the handicapped door, check in with Jack at the desk and sit down. Or you can sit around for 90 minutes and wait in the crowed waiting area- you choose. Good place for a good steak.

“Consistent, Excellent Food”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

The Steakhouse has one of the most consistently good kitchens we've experienced. We're New Yorkers with a house in southern Maine and we've eaten at this restaurant for more than a decade. The filets are routinely outstanding and properly cooked, and the side dishes are excellent.

If you go, you should plan for a long wait. No business can attract the crowds that have become part of The Steakhouse experience without offering a first rate product. Plan on the wait, get a drink, and enjoy!
