“One of the better places to eat!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Family of five had a great meal here once again. Fried haddock was great, and fried clams even better. Having eaten at most places around town the prices were fair. Go early during the summer or you will wait awhile.

“Not worth the long wait”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

We ate there during our first night in Wells. The line was long and in the end, the food was not worth the 40 minute wait. It was very average. I don't really like deep fried food and it was difficult to choose anything else. Would not go back.

“Not just a clam shack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

We were there Wednesday nite at 6:30, Long line out the door. Went in the lounge and found a high top table near the bar and a great waitperson, (Nicky). The service was Perfect, always there when we needed her. Lorraine had the lobster pie (stuffed) and said it was the best she has had, I had the lazy mans lobster and it was very good. Real rating should be 4.5, we will be back soon. This place was a good find. Paul and Lorraine Westermeyer, Norwich, Ct.

“Best Lobster Roll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

We had a family reunion and didn't want to leave the beach so we ordered take out and went to pick it up. We got the lobster roll/clam chowder combo and loved the lobster roll. It was full of claw meat. The chowder was okay, but the lobster roll was outstanding!
