Description: Located in picturesque Wells Harbor in Wells, Maine, Hobbs Harborside offers something for everyone. From classic fried clams to a complete Maine lobster dinner, you and your guests will find a classic New England dish you love. Pull up a stool at our bar or take a seat in our casual dining room and take in the amazing views of the working harbor as you enjoy some good conversation and great food!

Five friends and I get together for each other's birthdays and go to lunch. Our decision to make Hobbs Harborside the locale for the latest birthday was a good one. Tracy, our waitperson, was funny and accommodating and willing to give us separate checks. The views are great overlooking Wells Harbor - very scenic. Delicious crabmeat salad over fresh greens were on several plates. Others tried the crabmeat quiche and coconut shrimp. All excellent! We shared a slice of lemon cheesecake for the birthday dessert and loved the fresh flavor. Even the noisy Red-Hatters at a nearby table didn't disturb us since they were having such fun. And we did, too. We will be back!

Pre-season, looking for something open that we hadn't been to yet. Location is good. The bacon wrapped scallops appetizer was delicious. My baked seafood entree was delicious, but the broccoli needed help. My partner's shrimp were good but the grilled steak was funky. It tasted & smelled like they had marinated it in that liquid smoke stuff (intended to be used sparingly). Service was good, speed was good. We'd go again but would NOT order anything grilled.

This was our introduction to the good food in Wells. Right on the harbor, we watched birds from our table overlooking the water through one of the big windows. It is hard to beat lobster stew and a lobster roll with a beverage for lunch and that launched us on our days of exploring the area. It seems like the staff know many of the guests and it has a very friendly vibe. The view and the food and full bar will put you in the mood for a day on the coast. I bet it can be super busy here at times but we hit it at a good time and I have nothing negative to say about it at all. Highly recommend.

Atmosphere is lovely, with nice views of Wells Harbor. Food was hot and delicious. I had the Seafood Sampler with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Craig, my server and bartender, was very friendly and attentive, which added to a very nice experience.

We went last night and had a really nice two person bar area high top table at the window overlooking the marsh. Ethan the bartender was friendly, attentive and had just the personality you hope a bartender would have! We just split a burger and it was done perfectly. The bar area was very social and the restaurant area had plenty of seating. Probably a good choice for large groups of friends and family! Drink prices were reasonable.
