Maine is renowned for its seafood, especially lobster and fried clams. Wells is home to a host of great restaurants, something for every taste and every budget. From Sea Mist, you are so close to seafood restaurants, whether you are in the mood for a lobster roll at a seaside clam shack or a more elegant oceanfront restaurant serving exquisite seafood entrees. Wells has many fun and family oriented eateries too, from coffee shops and pizza to fast food, Asian, Italian, even Irish pubs and Maine microbreweries.
Many restaurants in Wells and nearby Ogunquit and Kennebunkport focus on local produce, native beef, and the freshest ingredients from Maine farms. You will find Maine blueberries on most breakfast menus, and some of the best clam chowders in the state.
Wells has some rather famous restaurants too, from the legendary Maine Diner with its award winning home cooked fare (featured on the Today Show), to top chefs’ culinary creations at Joshua’s, Arrows in Ogunquit (a James Beard winner) and the five star White Barn in Kennebunkport. You can take a trolley to lunch or dinner from the Sea Mist in season.
At Sea Mist, we are happy to provide recommendations on where to dine in Wells. And all of our Sea Mist rooms have a kitchenette for your convenience; we are a quick drive to a large Hannaford Grocery and Liquor Store.
