If travelling along the Maine coast and near Wells then Billy’s is an excellent fish restaurant and its chowder is something else. For those needing Gluten free it does have a GF menu and also a GF beer.

Amazing!!! Do not pass up the chance to eat here. Great service from Betsy and the seafood was to die for. Give the blueberry shortbread sundae a try but be prepared to share it.
