Description: Located in Wells, The Bull N' Claw offers the highest quality seafood and steaks at the most reasonable prices with portions that will make you smile after every scrumptious bite! Over the past 36 years, we've become the destination for visitors to New England to enjoy deliciously fresh local seafood including our famous cape porpoise lobster, always prepared to order. It doesn't get any fresher or any better than Bull N' Claw.
Reviewed 30 July 2018

On Sunday mornings 8-11, Bull and Claw offers an all inclusive breakfast buffet. For $9.99 you can't get a better value. The selection is good, and there's a waffle, omelet, and fresh egg station, and the guy who works it each week is a personality to say the least, in a good way.

The restaurant gets busy, but has a plethora of seating. If I were to make a suggestion, I'd move the buffet away from the wall so people could use both sides as they proceed to make their selections. I'd also splurge and use fresh eggs in their scrambled eggs, but feeding this volume of people might make that prohibitive.

They've got cereal, breads, and a donut bar as well. I'm a fan of their home fries and bacon too. The wife raves about the fresh Belgian Waffles.

Overall, a good experience, twice, and worth the trip. Get there early. HP accessible, with the possible exception of the restroom.

We just had dinner here this evening. The staff was amazing. It started pouring down rain right at dinner time. We decided to go to Bull and Claw since we know it's a large restaurant that can accommodate a big group (we were 12). Since it was raining there was a large dinner rush, lots of hangry people. People don't understand how it's not simply just seating people quickly. The servers need time to greet the tables, get drinks going etc. If a sever gets 3 or 4 tables at once then they have no chance of providing quality service. However, Kim calmly and rationally explained this to the hangry patrons waiting to sit. She was funny and a boost of positivity that everyone needed to get through the wait. The staff handled the dinner rush very well, the kitchen staff got our food orders right out hot and delicious. We're very grateful to the team for saving dinner tonight.

We originally was going to eat at the Maine Diner across the road but the line was way too long. I’m so glad we came here instead. We came right in and sat down to a super friendly staff. I enjoyed the extensive salad bar but everyone’s meals were delicious. Definitely will be back for dinner some night.

On our trip to Maine we stopped for lunch at Bull and Claw. We had a choice of lobster. Prime rib or stuffed chicken the meals all came with salad chowder soda or coffee and blueberry cobbler for dessert. The meals were all very good. I would reccomend this place to everyone

The Bull 'n' Claw has a wide ranging menu, steaks, pasta, seafood, et. Something for everyone.

The food was all good. We had haddock, scallops, short ribs, steak, and lobster mac. Prices reasonable, and portions good.

BIG dining room, a bit noisy. Good for families.
