Forbes Seafood Restaurant & Take Out
Ranked #41 of 76 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.

$60 for lunch for a family of four, the food was mediocre at best (the fries weren't even cooked) and we were swarmed by flies inside the restaurant. The only reason to eat here is convenience.

Our family always goes to Forbes during our vacation but in recent year it has gone down hill. For the past several years it has become a joke that we go here on the first night of vacation so all the rest of the food we eat during our trip will taste amazing. This year did not disappoint the pizza wasn't cooked and the inside of the chicken was still frozen. I would not recommend this restaurant at all.

Great clam chowder and ice cream. Reasonable prices and easy beach access. Decent parking to grab a small breakfast or beverage too.

It wasn't the best fish sandwich, but it was good. I'd skip the onion rings, tho, since they were too doughy.
