This is your place if you like local, fresh seafood (mostly fried or grilled) in a very casual setting. At Jake's you order at the counter, take a seat and wait till your number is called. The quick-order chef whips delivers your order very quickly. Food is typical. Excellent chowder (not heavy, has real clams), fresh butternut squash soup. The... More

There is a parking lot in front so no issue there. This place is very casual and you order at the window then pick up your order when it is ready. It is fairly small with some booths and tables and it was quite busy while we were there. There is a good variety to choose from - even non-seafood... More

Stopped in for lunch. You place your order at a counter, and when your order is ready they bring the order to your table. Grab an empty table as there are not many tables to sit at, and the place is usually packed. Very clean inside and the service is good. We ordered soup and a sandwich and both were... More

Nice little place on 1 in Wells. Food is fresh and tasty. Friendly staff. We have only ordered from their outside window, so I can't say what the sit-down restaurant is like. There's hundreds of places in the area that you can get a lobster roll, but the ones we got here seemed more generous and like the lobster was... More

The lobster roll to beat all lobster rolls is here. Loaded with large buttery chunks of the freshest lobster imaginable. This will be my first stop the next time I'm in the area.

Enjoyed our lobster and crab rolls, onion rings and a side order of clam strips. Exactly what we wanted. Fresh and delicious. Gifford's and a cup of homemade chowder.:)

Now this is what New England seafood is all about. Fast service and friendly homestyle atmosphere. Not fancy at all but where the locals would eat. Fantastic lobster roll and the french fries were crisp and tasty. Ask for Cindy.....she owns the place and is a superstar

Stopped by on the way north and found the food to be a little pricey and the food to be average. The chowder was mostly potatoes and a little thin. The staff were super friendly and we were satisfied but not blown away. Worth a stop though

Eat in or take home. Wide variety of seafood choices at reasonable prices. Quick service. Check your order before you leave. Our order was missing a side we ordered.
