We stopped for dinner on Saturday night of a holiday weekend. The bar was crowded. We waited about 10 minutes for a table in the dining room. Both areas are very large. The servers were friendly and paid attention. The food and beer were tasty. The prices were reasonable.

We just ate there this week end. It is a busy place, but you can usually walk into the bar instead. The lobster stew was delicious! Full of lobster and not too heavy. My husband had the fried haddock and really liked it. He had a warm strawberry shortcake with vanilla ice cream that was very good. In mho the... More

My wife and I live locally and in July noticed that Mike was beginning a weekend breakfast buffet. We decided to try it and have been coming every Sunday since. The food is being cooked and refilled constantly. So its very fresh and excellent. Its not fancy choices, its just great. What's nice. for example, is the three choices of... More

Mike's Clam Shack is a good business that keeps their product consistent. Fried foods are tasty and portions are large. My food was never greasy or poorly cooked and portions are generous. Specials are the best bet. I had fried haddock, which was flaky and tender. Side dishes are basic, don't look for anything unusual. Service is always efficient and... More

Good place with lots of options on the menu if you have some that are not crazy for seafood. It is good for families with lots of family sized tables. I would highly recommend getting there early as we had an hour and a half wait for a table. Food was quite good and worth the wait. They were also... More

Overrated, food is ok but average, wait is always way too long. Our daughter is celiac (allergic to gluten) - items are marked gluten free on menu, so that's cool. But wait staff does not have any clue about gluten free and the last waitress we had actually seemed annoyed that we needed GF. When we asked whether they had... More

This restaurant has been around a long time. I have tried it several different times over the years and the food is no better. I have also done take out and every time the order has not been correct. In the summer months there is a long wait to be seated. It is also very noisy. I have given up... More
