“Perfect quick grab food right on the beach”

Forbes Seafood Restaurant & Take Out
Ranked #45 of 70 Restaurants in Wells
Price range: $6 - $26
Description: Since 1921 the Forbes family has been serving tasty fried seafood, home made onion rings, pizza, beer and wine, ice cream, popcorn and fresh ground hamburg. One meal that is asked for is the famous Scrambleburger. Though all our customers have tried to replicate this at home, they always come back to tell us, "It's just not the same!" Whether you start your day at the beach with a muffin and coffee or end the day with an ice cream, there is something for everyone.

This is located right next to the beach in Wells, on the same property as the Lafayette Beachfront Resort. Great food morning, noon and night!

Locate on the casino, at the beach, the take-out menu is great. It is open during the season, and just prior to the season and just after, there is a limited time when on weekends, they are available. The food, burgers, clams, fries, are wonderful New England fare, but the clam chowder is the best in the area. You must try a cup to fully experience Maine at its best. I can hardly wait for the time to come to enjoy the chowder.

The place is not impressive from outside. Close to a parking lot,next to the washrooms.
They could serve mediocre quality food with all the tourists stoping by but they don`t. i do not know for how long they were open but it is alway fresh and good.
The fish&chips is one of the best i ever had. Unfortunatly the fries are frozen.
The young staff is very pleasant and efficient.
The restaurant is just next to the beach so you can enjoy the ocean and have a nice box of fish and chips for lunch. A few parking spots are available only for the restaurant patrons right in front of the place.

we usually are not there when Forbes is open. they stay open only for the short season. however, we managed to get there when the take out window was open. i love the hot dogs here and the way they grill those frankfurter buns. my husband and daughter had the scrambled hamburg (which is their specialty) and they were unimpressed. being from louisiana, I think they were expecting more flavor. the service is never very friendly, but we've come to expect this in the northeast. I will go back time and again for the hot dogs!

We went here twice. The first time was for dinner. The hambugers where great and the onion rings where out of this world. The next day we went for breakfast. What a disapointment. I paid $36 for the four of us and it was not good at all.
