this is a classic busy steakhouse that is always tasty. Not for the atmosphere but for a great steak. you wait downstairs at a small bar until your table is available. I have never had a bad meal here. Tha place house been around a long time.

The steaks are good, the wait is long, the salads are big, the sides are tasty, the rolls are spongy, and this continues to be a very, very popular place among tourists and locals alike.

The Well's Steak House USED to be awesome. However; the last two times this past summer (2016) we went there, both of our experiences were pretty much the same. Very disappointing even though our previous years going there throughout the whole summer were great. They have really taken a turn for the worst and THEY DON'T CARE. .. Our time... More

Best steakhouse in the Wells area in my opinion. No reservations so be prepared to wait! It is definitely worth waiting for!
