When in the area we always stop at the Bull and Claw in Wells Maine. Great food, soup, salad bar with friendly service. My wife had lobster and I had the pork chop.

I have come to the Bull and Claw multiple times, one time for dinner we had the seafood platter and there was enough for 2 plus leftovers! We also have gone to the breakfast buffet and it also was wonderful. I have read some of the reviews and don't believe the bad stuff, we have NEVER had a bad visit... More

If you are looking for decent food for a decent price from a good family menu deep in the heart of Upscale KPT & Wells, give this a try. A bit of the 50's and 60"s remain alive and well... like super salad bar, great variety menu, booths, and the oddest decor of stuff, try here. Especially off season where... More

Sundays, 8 a.m. - 11 a.m. "all you can eat" breakfast buffet. Weekday lunch specials with a great salad bar! Delicious food! Caring employees. This is NOT a "fast food" restaurant, tho'. You will need an hour to receive and eat your meal, fyi.

Service in this restaurant is great...very good soup & salad bar, their mushroom & wildrice soup is excellent, need to have it more frequently. Large bar area if you want to go with a group for Happy Hour..... Their Italian haddock very good, but the broccoli was way over cooked!! You're better off getting the raw broccoli off the salad...

Large dining room, not very crowded at lunch. Lunch menu available but able to order off the dinner menu, too. Cup of soup and salad bar featured. Clam chowder was ok, served piping hot. Salad bar was wilting, best items were the beets and green olives. Calamari was definitely out of the freezer, not breaded in house, marinara was not... More

We apologize that the service wasn't our best, it's unusual for that to happen, but everyone can have an off night. We hope you'll give us another chance, as this was a... More

This place lures you in with advertised buffets and specials. The food was awful. The service was terrible. The atmosphere was something out of a musty old movie. The coffee however was very good. Save yourself a poor meal and go across the street to the Maine Diner.

Thank tampa f

Tampa, we aren't sure what went wrong with your food, or with your service, but this doesn't sound like us at all. If you could point to some specifics on what went wrong, then we would be more than happy to correct them. Just curious, did you make your server aware that you weren't satisfied with your meal?

Our server Staci was one of the best ever. She was friendly, efficient, attentive and went out of her way to help us with local area tourist suggestions.
