The food was good but not outstanding. The prices were a bit high for what you got but the décor and comfort was very good. The wait-staff were very pleasant and smiling. The menu was varied so most tastes would find something interesting.

We enjoyed a great dinner at Mike's Clam Shack in Wells, Maine. Huge dining area. Didn't have to wait even on Mother's day for a table. My husband said best prime rib he ever had. The lobster roll and clam chowder was great. Extensive menu. Good prices for the food

We had heard of Mike's, recalled dining there years ago, so decided to dine again. Arriving at 7:45 there was a 40 minute wait, we know it never is that long as with most reception hosts, so decided to stay. Half an hour later we were seated with Joshua taking care of us, he was great. We had a mix... More

I visited for the first time for lunch. The place was very laid back and casual. I had the Lobster Roll and cup of clam chowder ( $17.50) and my guest had the lunch portion baked scallops ($16.96). The scallops were delicious and I thought the lobster roll was kind of small. They had it on a slice of bread... More

I don't understand why people wait in line to eat here. The food is good & the portions are more than adequate but it is just a regular restaurant. I was seated in a room with a gas fireplace & really enjoyed the atmosphere that the fireplace provided as it was a damp & cold day. Other than that, it... More

This place is not a shack. Great drinks, great service, large portions, big booths and chewy lobster. I ordered the lazy man's lobster, a little on the chewy raw hide side. I was expecting melt in your mouth lobster. Guess I should have ordered a working mans lobster. My wife ordered the Lobster Roll, it was exceptional. Enjoy your visit... More

After being on the road for close to five hours, this was a nice place to stop for a hearty, relaxing dinner. Portions were generous and the prices reasonable.

We tried Mike's last Sept. on the recommendation of our daughter and son-in-law, who had been up in Dec. the previous year. We had wonderful seafood and side dishes, but the reason I am writing was the wonderful very generous serving of steamed clams. The only time I had ever had them before was around age 10, which is more... More
