Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

Amazing fresh seafood (how could it not be when you are right across the street from the ocean). Large white chunks of haddock lightly breaded, chunky and fresh chowder, and beautifully buttered lobster that will make your tastebuds thank you forever! Add to that a beautiful view of the ocean and a quick and friendly staff that will make you want to keep coming back. My family and I were in Wells for 10 days and we visited the Lobster Pound at least 7 times. If you need a break from seafood, also try their breaded chicken breast nuggets...amazing!

Was sent to Mikes, but there was a 25 minute wait. Saw others review of here and called. No wait. Ordered right away and waited outside to enjoy the view and look for seals. Best 20 minute wait ever! Food was great, view superb and we were all exited about actually seeing seals. Easy breezy dining. The lobster was cooked and cracked perfectly. No complaints.

Been going here for years always great food and in my opinion best fried food in town. Great view of the ocean and the harbor seals are always in this area as well. I always get the chowder and clam strips but I have tried a lot of the other stuff on the menu. Also they ship lobsters which is very convenient if you are traveling and want to bring a taste of Maine home. Overall great place!

Now this is what New England Clam Chowder should taste like. DELICIOUS. Not too thick, just the right consistency with tons of flavor, potatoes and clams. It warmed my heart. This family owned restaurant offers lovely service, a beautiful view right on Wells Beach, another winning lobster roll, clams, scallops, salmon, shrimp and more. All reasonably priced. They offer carry-out and even better, they'll ship seafood for you, including the wonderful clam chowder. It's about as local as it gets. Go!

We arrived at this place by chance, primarly looking for the shore. This good looking place was attractive for a quick lunch. Good service, great view, excellent food. We enjoyed all the most that it was not scheduled. We rented two kayaks after the meal, for a nice tour in the bay. Definitively a great place where to go.
