Our friends and family love the food and we love the way Mike's tries to please you with their great service. In the off season they have great specials. We are there every month of the year, Thanks Mike's and staff!!

On a recommendation from our innkeeper, we tried Mike's and loved it. I had the Shore dinner which included clam chowder, a small lobster and a whole lot of steamers. The chowder was as good as any I've ever had and steamers were sweet and tender. The lobster was a 1.25 pounder which with everything else was more than enough.... More

We visited in September. Just a half of a mile sidewalk trip to the Elmwood Resort which runs a special that you get a $50 Mike's Clam Shack gift card (other restaurant choices are available). The prime & scallops was wonderful! Instead of waiting for a dining room table, we chose to eat in the bar which was a very... More

My wife and I found this spot by accident and believe it to be the best spot for seafood hands down. The fish stew is served piping hot in a generous sized bowl that is so filling we couldn't finish our entrée at lunch, which was a delicious, lightly battered and not over fried fish and chips, also generous in...

This place was pretty busy for a Saturday night in the off season, but the wait was not that long. We had a very nice, attentive waiter who got to us post haste! My friend who is a local, recommended the chowda, and I couldn't have been more delighted! It was delicious! Just enough for a meal! My mom had... More

This restaurant often produces acceptable meals. But always avoid anything baked stuffed ... It's is outside of their range. The stuffing is mushy and just a blob in the middle, worse what is under it is lower grade fish than their other dishes and dramatically overcooked. Tonight did not start well. My 86 year old father in law uses a... More

We recently went to Mike's for my parent's 50th Anniversary. They wanted a good meal and but didn't want fancy. Well we were not disappointed. The food came out very fast and was very hot. Considering how busy it was we were pleasantly surprised. The meals were tasty and we will be back!!!! Thanks for announcing that it was their... More

We usually have dinner here once when we are in Maine. With a party of six, the service was actually pretty good! We all got our appetizers and drinks in a timely manner and our dinner came at the right time. I had the lobster mac and cheese, and it was very good! Everyone else seemed to enjoy their dinner....

When we come to Wells we look forward to take out lobsters from Mike's. He'll cook them and you can pick them up at a pre-determined time or wait for them to be cooked. Or you can take them live and DIY. When we leave to return home, we have them pack up a couple hard shelled 2-pounders for us.... More
