Good solid place, big menu

It's too busy for our taste. But it's great off-hours for the early lobster special (great deal). Also a big menu so you can just get a small lobster roll with chowder at a good price.

We went for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Got seated and waited on promptly. Food was plentiful and good will definitely go back again. I'm sure during the summer season this place is packed

Very impressed with the quickness of the food and the fine quality of our meal. Hostess was very friendly and spent a lot of time going over the large menu.

We loved Mike's Clam Shack and will definitely be returning. Service was great and the food was amazing! We got there a little early to beat the supper rush but would have been worth the wait even if we didn't.

Have gone to Mike's before, even had our Mom's 80th birthday party there; they were very accommodating. This time we had a group of 7, even off season they were busy but we got seated right away. From the various seafood dishes to the prime rib everything was delicious, presented well & plentiful. Our server was on top of things,... More

We stopped here for lunch enroute to northern Maine. We have been here before and always find something we like. Today was no different, although the service was different. I think we hit shift change because it was quite a bit before we were waited on and there were only three parties in our section - it was dead! Our... More

My husband and I always eat at Mike's when we visit Wells. It has the best seafood and the waitstaff is extremely friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend lunch or dinner here when you're in town. You will not be disappointed!

The band was terrific, and she Shore dinner was fantastic. Closes kind of early though in March, but had a great time.

Good food and good service. Ate in the pub area which seemed to be the best atmosphere in the place. Highly recommend.
