Classic Clam Shack

Went here with no reservations during Xmas prelude for lunch on a Friday with a large group (9) with 4 kids. We were seated within 5 minutes once they got a table set up. Plenty of space and room for the kids to move around. Service was attentive even though it was busy and offseason without a... read more

My husband Mike and I love the variety of the menu at Mike's Clam Shack. Everything we have tried has been excellent, especially the corn chowder. A great spot to eat when we are in Maine on vacation.

To be fair, your price might vary, but the point is the lobsters are fresh, ample sized and served up with great sides. I chose corn on the cob and a nice baked potato. This is a casual and busy restaurant on Highway 1 in Wells, but come for an early dinner and you won't have a long wait. Lovely... More

We had four at dinner that night and the food was excellent, the service was fast and the prices were good, not overly priced the way some resturants do in a tourist area.

We went to the bar and had a fun drink before the movies. The pino was good and at $5.79 was a good deal. My Hop Nosh was only $3.47 and that was the deal of the night! Good Job!

We recently had lunch at Mike's which was excellent - baked haddock and stuffed haddock. We love coming to Mike's when in Wells. I also had their seafood chowder which was outstanding.

Very large place so can fit a lot of diners, we sat at the bar and went there in the off season so it was quiet. Watched the game, had a beer, ordered the fried scallops to go because we had a place we rented and were cooking dinner and wanted a seafood side to go with. Looks like they... More

Had a late lunch here last month. We ordered a baked haddock plate which was absolutely great and a chicken pot pie. I got a very much so like a frozen pot pie from the super market. It had more peas than anything. It just was not what I thought I had ordered because I had one there before and... More

Clam chowder was excellent, steamers were fabulous. I had surf and turf with steak (cooked perfectly) and fried scallops also perfectly cooked. My husband had the fried clam basket - SO GOOD! Highly recommend!
