Only place to eat during winter. That being said I wouldn't rely on the advertised hours. If going to Wells during off season bring your own food. Breakfast was great at this place. Coffee was amazing. The owners were friendly !

Ate dinner here as it was the only place open. Ordered a burger which was very tasty. Yes, the decor is very dated but the food and service were good.

Had a pork chop dinner... It was great! Generous portions and nicely presented. The service was great and although they were only offering the buffet, when we asked, they allowed us to order off the menu.... Awesome!
