Always stop and eat here

We have been going to Mikes for many years and enjoy the food every time. We are pretty boring and even though the menu is large we always get the fried clams or lobster role. I tried their chicken a few times and it to is good. There isn't a view but the food and price make up for it

Everyone raves about Mikes!!! We have gone on several occasions and found the food to be average, a bit pricey and the service just ok. Not planning to go back.

My mother, sister and I had dinner here at the end of August (I couldn't select this in the drop down menu). We were staying in Old Orchard Beach, ME and had heard wonderful things about this restaurant. We are so glad we decided to come! It was about a 30 minute drive from Old Orchard Beach. This is definitely... More

I grew up in southern VT and went to ME many times and know how fabulous the seafood is there. After being away for many years moving around the states, even Alaska for our jobs and without EVER having found a really top notch place that truly knows how to do the clam strips properly, KUDOS to Mike's Clam Shack!...

We stayed in wells 3 nights and ate here twice. The food and service were exceptional. The atmosphere was casual and prices were about average. The lobster roll was very good and the clam chowder was fabulous.

The parking lot was full and I was concerned about a long wait time and there was none, I was seated right away as the restaurant is very large. The service was excellent (this is my must stop in Maine) as it always is. The food was excellent (as usual). I highly recommend Mike's Clam Shack!

Who are all of these people giving this place glowing reviews and what restaurant did they eat at? I've been to better seafood places in land locked states. The seafood chowder was mediocre at best. I had the broiled combo platter. The haddock, scallops(bay not sea) and stuffed shrimp were in a small casserole dish that was over flowing with... More

Mikey's is always our first stop when we arrive in Wells, after our 6 hour ride. It's usually around 1:00, and just what we need to start our vaca. We always sit in the pub and enjoy a cold one while checking out the sports on all the TV's. Our favorite time is in the fall, when football is on.... More

Definitely better than the Lobster Pound. A wide array of foods to choose from. Excellent value. HINT: ask to be seated at the bar. Usually never a wait. Spacious room with freshly made popcorn.
