Mike's aims at serving up a taste of Maine, however it really specializes in a lot of deep fried everything. The service is good, the place is clean and the food is average for a fry joint. If you are looking for great natural seafood this isn't the place. If you are looking for seafood fried like crazy, you'll love... More

The people that gave this place Great reviews never ordered the lobster roll I went for lunch and got the lobster roll and chowder for $18. The chowder came out And was okay but the meal took forever that I literally forgot I already ate the chowder The lobster roll was tiny. I literally was paying for a hotdog bun... More

In all the years coming to this area it was the first time at Mike's, twice: lunch on Monday and dinner on Thursday. Great food, good prices for the value. We all had lobster which was one of the best we've ever had. Granddaughter had mac and cheese-what else does a 7 year old eat !

We have been to Mike's several times. The food is very good and the atmosphere in the bar area is great. If you are a couple and don't want the dining room the bar is the place to go. We found it more personable. We would not miss going here for a meal and drinks.

June 4, 2015 - While staying at Wells, we stopped by Mike's Clam Shack for a bite to eat. I was not too hungry so I ordered Chicken Noodle Soup which was too salty and not much chicken. Linda's clam strips were average. upon entering the restaurant, there is a lobby area used for customers to wait for a seat.... More

Mike's has the best fried seafood around. We visited with friends at lunch time and got seated quickly. Food was outstanding.

Two of us were driving from Pennsylvania and stopped there for dinner. We were told they would not seat parties of two.... Apparently they wanted more people so they would receive more money. So, they had a take-out window around the side. We were hungry so we ordered salads and soup. The soup was nothing special, not worth the price.... More

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
