We were here thanksgiving weekend and had a great time. The bar was filled with locals and the atmosphere was really fun. The wine was reasonably priced. We will be back throughout the winter!

We went to Mike's Clam Shack with a party of eleven, 2 of which were under 4. They were able to seat us all together, without waiting, and everyone found something they liked. The food & service was great!

The Christmas tree was lit. The fireplace was glowing. The waitress was very friendly. Our food was served in timely manner. My husband enjoyed his clam strips. My tuna wrap was fresh and delicious. This restaurant is casual and inviting.

Stopped here because a couple other choices in Wells were not open Thanksgiving week. The service was fine, and the food was good, but nothing special. Prices were very reasonable. Seemed like the patrons were mostly local folks and senior citizens.

My husband and son love the combo haddock and scallop plate. Portions are huge with plenty for others to take a taste. And they have a great little gift shop while you wait to be seated.

ALWAYS crowded -- ALWAYS!! The food is average restaurant food, but there is a sizeable menu to choose from, and a nice pub that frequently has live music. It's a good choice if you're new to the area and aren't sure where to go.

We visited several times with different family members. The lobster mac and cheese was superior at lunch time byy dinner it took on a pasty taste. The fried clams, scallops and baby Maine shrimp were excellent.

We waited with anticipation to have dinner at our Mikes Clam Shack for our mother/daughter/granddaughter Girls Maine Trip. We have always had a good meal there, in the past. My dinner was absolutely cold in the middle. My granddaughter's fried shrimp were so wet and soggy, she did not eat them. We do understand everyone can have a bad night,... More

We happened upon this restaurant and took a chance. We were glad we did! We were heading to the Maine Diner which is down the road a ways, we went there a few years ago, liked it but hated the crowd and the wait. So we stopped here, saw there were a few cars in the parking lot and liked... More

The food was okay, stuffing for baked stuff shrimp was not very tasty - mushy. Prime rib husband had was best thing. Service was absolutely horrible. Waitress took 15 minutes to come over and get a drink order, getting a refill was a joke. She was more interested in making sure her hair was stellar and perfecting her sashay in... More
