Seafood at it's best

The best seafood in the area. We had to wait for close to an hour to be seated. It was worth the wait. Didn't have the best table. It looked like we were in the servers station. The seafood was amazing.

We wanted a good seafood dinner on our last night in Maine, and got it here. I had fried scallops, haddock and onion rings. They were excellent. The breeding on the seafood was thin and crisp. The seafood itself was tender and cooked just right. The onion rings were also excellent. My husband loved his fried clams -- cooked perfectly... More

Huge building. Parking lot is always full. I don't get it. I ordered the fishermans platter, fried. Bland, bland, bland. I've had better seafood in Chicago. Definitely won't be back

This place was packed on a Friday night when we arrived. Not fancy, but a fun atmosphere. We waited at the bar and had a drink before a table was ready. The food was decent and reasonably priced. We weren't overly impressed, but all said we would go back.

Family took us to have lunch at this lovely restaurant. They remembered it from previous visits, years ago. And it's still just as good. Food was great, service was fast, professtional, & friendly. The restaurant is pleasant to look at & is extremely well maintained. Highly recommend this restaurant. Meals are quite large, so be prepared!

We had a great dinner here tonight. I was in such a mood for Surf and Turf and at a quick glance Mike's Clam Shack seemed like a good choice...and it was. My wife doesn't like seafood so it's always a must that the restaurant have plenty of land food choices and Mike's does. My surf and turf was great,... More

Meals were just so so, service was good. Just a fast food type atmosphere. Had the clam and scallop dinner, Clams were mushy, scallops were alright. Mother in law had the swordfish, it was about 1/2" thick and tasteless.

All the food choices were amazing. 7 in our business group and 7 different items chosen. All choices looked and were reported to be great. I say, you must try the Lobster Pie. It is topped with seafood stuffing and was incredible.

First time at this establishment. Had to wait 20 minutes, as predicted by the hostess. We both had the baked haddock dinner- his stuffed with seafood, mine plain with a cracker crumb topping. The fish was moist and plentiful. The availability of butternut squash as a vegetable was a happy surprise, but it was cold- not so happy. The service... More

A must visit at least twice every trip to Wells. Awesome lobster stew, all the seafood is great and many dinners come in small and regular portion sizes and the regular is large! Very reasonably priced all around. Even when they are busy, so many seats you don't have to wait long...or try at first come first serve seat in... More
