“Great food and great atmosphere”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I are at Boon Island a couple weeks ago and had a great experience. From the hostess when I walked in, my server and the owner who came to check on my experience. I started off with the clam chowder and then had the cheeseburger pizza. The food was amazing and it was topped off with excellent and friendly service. This is a spot I definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Wells, ME.

“Fun place”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Very jolly, with an unpretentious basic menu, certainly all you'd need in order to enjoy a few drinks and some American food. They know how to mix a Bloody Mary, and my fried calamari starter could have fed the whole restaurant! Great burgers. All in all, very good value!

“Best dinner during our vacation in Maine”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The food was fresh and delicious. The service was good. They had a magician doing some tricks for the kids. Nothing bad to say about this place! I had the best dinner while in Maine.

“Came back to a different BIA”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

I ate at BIA last Summer and had to come back because my blue cheese gnocchi was so delicious. This time we came in to more of a pub then fine dining which I had anticipated. The menu is very different, more bar food including nachos, pizza, and burgers. I started with the nachos which were great and loaded with hamburger and cheese. Went with the buffalo chicken wrap with sweet potato fries for dinner. It was pretty good, but the dressing in the wrap was very mayonnaise-y. The sweet potato fries were awesome! Had some great food, just a different experience than expected.

“The Boon Island Sank”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

The service was dreadful, the waiter was more interested in the hostess than his customers.
The drinks were watered down and overpriced, and the food was passable at best.
Tourist Trap at best, definitely won't go back or recommend it to anyone. Lets see what it is next year.
