“Wonderful!”
Reviewed June 2, 2010

We made a reservation for my daughter's rehearsal dinner (I am in North Carolina- Daryl, the owner, was amazingly helpful). We were offered a fantastic choice of a menu, which included all taxes and gratuities. When we arrived, we actually had more people than originally planned. The staff didn't blink an eye, we were greeted in a very friendly manner. Our servers were attentive and helpful- even making sure that the bride and groom were the first served. Attention to these kind of forgotten (by me) details made the evening relaxing and pleasant. The food? Excellent! I have nothing but the best of things to say about the Bull 'n Claw. Would highly recommend it to anyone at anytime!

“Just had dinner here”
Reviewed May 29, 2010

We decided after leaving OOB to drive down Rt. 1 and try a place that we had never been. Pulled into the Maine Diner since we had heard good things about it...but it was so packed and we were SO starved. Right across the street was the Bull and Claw, busy but not packed...so we decided to try it out.
OMG
We ate and ate and ate and ate
Clam Chowder: A+ amazing
Fried Mushrooms: A+ not greasy, hot and fresh
Steamers: A++ Sweet and plentiful
Lobster Trio: A++ Hubby dearest cleaned his plate
Buffalo Chicken Salad: A My daughter loved the flavors but thought they were stingy on the chicken
Fried Scallops and Clams:A+ big yummy, fresh, and not over cooked. No grease, YUM!

Side dishes..mashed potato and coleslaw.
Mashed potato with gravy was good, but needed salt and pepper
Coleslaw...tart and cabbag-ey LOL Hubby ate all his though

We decided that we had an amazing meal for a great price and will definitely be back this summer.

“Best meal ive had in a long time, all around.”
Reviewed May 29, 2010

Havent been here in over 10 years. Last time I visited they were cafeteria style, which according to their site stopped in 1995. My family and I had an amazing meal. Steak, scollops, king crab legs, fried clams, even buffalo chix salad, all were top notch! Waitress was also super nice and very attentive. Will definately be returning as soon as possible. We had 4 meals just under $100 for seafood, a seemingly decent deal. Only thing i am sorry about is that i waited this long to return.

“Bull & Claw is simply the best”
Reviewed May 1, 2010

Bull and Claw Restaurant

On April 24th we went to Maine in search of a tasty lobster meal. We drove past several restaurants; why I don’t know. We stop at Bull and Claw to eat. The service was excellent from the moment we walked into the restaurant. We were greeted with a warm friendly smile and a hello like we were visiting a good friend. There were no secrets the hostess offered various seats and told us our waitress’s name and seated us in the hospitable restaurant. Again, we were greeted with a welcoming smile from Kim our waitress. Kim was knowledgeable and made positive recommendations from the menu. We started our meal with a bowl and cups of claw chowder served with pippin hot fresh oven-baked rolls. The main course was Lobsters with various side dishes. We all had the garden fresh cole slaw that was crunchy to chew and delicious to taste. Now for the lobsters they were scrumptious. The size of the lobsters were from our wrist to our elbow and as round as the distance from pinky finger to a thumb. The meat was sweet, mouth-watering, and tender. The seasoning for the lobster was malt wine vinegar and a secret seafood mix. This mixture of malt vinegar and seafood mix carried the taste to another luscious level in seafood. Kim even helped open a lobster for one of my friends. Well, we saw and tasted Claw and did not see Bull. The restaurant is a large place beside the road that offers simple the best in service and food to all that enters. Special note: We live in Maryland we were in Boston for an educational conference, and drove to Maine for a good lobster dinner. The next time you are in the area. Do yourself a favor drive to or stop by for a tasty meal. A few things will happen to you one you will be satisfied with the food; love the restaurant; and plan to return in the near future. So be careful the Bull will make you return. Therefore, the Bull is in you as you plan to rush back for a delicious meal at the cordial Bull and Claw Restaurant in Wells, Maine.

“Great family dining!”
Reviewed April 24, 2010

We visit the Bull n Claw every year because the food is great and service is always wonderful. Our last visit was even more enjoyable than usual. We had an outstanding waitress, Sonya, who made the experience even better than usual. She was quick, helpful and extremely friendly. It is definately our favorite place to visit when we are in Wells!
