Excellent setting. The service is very professional. The menu is always limited to what is fresh. Every single meal, every single time is excellent. Some are more excellent that others but all are worth a visit. Fantastic drinks from the bar.

Good food but crowded and a bit expensive. It is in a tourist area so the price is about average for the area. It is a decent place for families and the menu does have a variety.

This was the first restaurant we visited during our time in Maine. There were so many great choices on the menu, and it was hard to decide on just one entree. Everything we ordered was delicious. The food was perfectly prepared and tasted very fresh....More

My husband and I haven't had a meal this good in a really long time. We love the atmosphere and how nothing is rushed so that you can truly enjoy your meal. We started with mussels for an appetizer which we can't stop thinking about...More

Perfectly prepared food and service. The best duck breast we have ever had. Home made breads and farm to table veggies and meats made this meal super tasty. Expensive, sometimes hard to get a reservation but we got in for 5:30 sitting and were not...More

Can't say enough positive things. Homemade desserts were a hit. We brought our young daughters and the staff were very patient and accommodating.

My husband and I ate here one night while visiting Wells. The food was delicious and many of the menu items seemed to be the chef's own creations. I ate the cucumber gazpacho, and it was one of the best summer soup's I have ever...More

We came here on recommendation from the B&B we were staying at (Haven by the Sea), and we're so glad we did! Ended up sitting at a high-top table in the bar area, which was fine with us, and the soft light and quiet ambiance...More

Yes they usually have the Lobster Pie, although the it is special. As a lot of the menu they only serve it if it's fresh. You will love the lobster pie as it comes in a flakey home made crust with just lobster. Vegetables... More
