Great fried clam strips! Side orders by the pint are an excellent value, more seafood for the money. Very tasty, sweet, lightly battered and perfectly fried clam strips were as good as anyplace. Much better value than on Rte. 1 Five miles toward North Berwick on rt 9B - quiet, pleasant dining areas. Outdoor picnic tables in a nice setting.

This is a real nice place, Great food, Great ambiance and wait staff. A bit slow but worth the wait. Sea scallops are delicious.

I ate dinner with a large group. The service was excellent. Further, the food came out in a reasonable time (there were 12 of us). It was hot, prepared well and very tasty.

Richard's is a great find. You can dine in or use the take out window and use the picnic table area in good weather. Away from the main stream hustle and bustle in a quiet wooded area on route 9. The fish and chips were great! Generous portion and cooked perfectly.

Found this listing while checking out other places in Wells, and we decided to try it out. The selection is good, the fried Haddock had a thin coating on it and was fried perfectly. It came with fries, a few onion rings and coleslaw, and was all very good. My better half had the fried whole clams and thought that... More

I had no idea there were miniature, and I mean miniature whole belly clams, looks like they were cut in 3's, breaded and fried. Also, the online menu says $13.95, when you get there is is $22.00 for the same thing. Presentation was very sloppy, fries were new and old, onion rings were thread rings. Very disappointing! NEVER AGAIN. First... More

Richard's Seafood Restaurant located between North Berwick, Maine and Wells, Maine draws many locals in for the specials of the day. The menu is heavy on fried seafoods. The servings are huge. There is a nice back room which looks out on a lovely small waterfall. Waitstaff is eager to please.
