Although restaurants in Wells are open year round, there is a better selection during the summer season.
Several family style restaurants exist within the community of Wells, and nearby Barkerville has a variety of options along the main street for sit-down dining or snack n' stroll.
Resorts within Bowron Lake Provincial Park (30km/18mi north-east of Wells) open their restaurant doors to those exploring the park's lakes and rivers during the summer.
When snows pile up along the trails and the swish of cross-country skis replaces the stomp of hiking boots, all of Barkerville closes for the winter, as do some businesses in Wells. Two restaurants, Pooley Street Café in the Wells Hotel on Pooley street, and the Northwoods Inn Restaurant on Highway 26, remain open to ensure some options for those travelling here for the winter playground.
