Great option for seafood in a dining setting

Mike's has been a mainstay for many years. And while it is no longer a Clam Shack it started off that way but it is now a large restaurant. It can accommodate large parties and families. It wouldn't be a pick for say a romantic dinner but you'll find fresh seafood with a lot of options, daily... read more

Service is horrible, Took the waitress 15 minutes to come to the table after staring her down. Took the drink order with no friendliness and was put off for asking questions. No she wasn't swamped she had three tables. No she wasn't new either. The dinner orders were sent back as not correct cooking of the steaks rare or med... More

Of course going to a Clam Shack I had to get fried clams; they were the best clams I've ever eaten! The service was great to but it gets very crowded

The service is great. The food is excellent. If you love Strawberry Short Cake you have to try it at Mikes. It is the best in Maine and absolutely the best I have ever eaten. The ribs are very good. We have eaten there numerous times and we have never had a bad meal.

Mike's is always a go to for us. We dine there quite frequently. My advice is to get there between 4&5 for dinner, otherwise, there is usually a 20 minute wait, which isn't even bad. I'm a huge fan of the prime rib especially grilled with garlic. They have a good child's menu as well. My son loved the chicken... More

I'll be dreaming of the clam chowder. I'll convince myself to vacation here every year for the lobster roll. Great service, atmosphere, and menu.
