Dinner at Mike's

If your party is like my family and some love seafood and some don't this is a great place to go. Dress is casual service is good and food is good too. My wife and son's like any thing on the seafood menu and I like their broasted chicken. Mike's can be a little pricey.

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

Lobsters seemed very small for the price, husband thought the escargo was way over cooked. The environment and staff was very nice.

As a repeat customer, I have tonsay. Mikes is the best! You must try the lobster pie when dining. I love their jumbo lobster roll and a cup of their clam chowdah....and add a shipyard summer ale, and it's a vacation every time. A must go to when on Rt1 in Wells!

We try and make a trip up to Mike's at least once a year. Living in CT, we have a decent number of seafood places, but their clam strips don't hold a candle to Mike's clams! As aways, a great meal!

Found Mike's Clam Shack while visiting Wells' Beach in Main. Nothing special about the interior of the restaurant just average looking-like it had been there a while. However, it was very clean and pleasant place to eat at. Certainly very casual dress is approprate. It was around 1pm and a good crowd for a Monday afternoon in April. My wife... More

Mike's Clam Shack is located on Rte 1 in Wells, Me. It has several dining rooms and can accommodate quite a large crowd. An extensive menu has many good choices but they have THE BEST fried whole clams my wife and I ever had, anywhere. A visit here(or two) is required every trip.

Wings were pretty good. The coconut shrimp were tasty. Grilled chicken sandwich was good. The fried clams, scallops and shrimp were good. Plates were loaded with more fries and onion rings. Looks were a little deceiving. Not so much fried clams, scallops and shrimp and too much fish. Basically, the plates were filled with the less expensive items leaving me... More

The food is great! the prices are reasonable. The dinning room is like eating in the GE light bulb factory, to bright. We ate at the bar where the lighting is better. We could even see the singers. I recommend and will be back

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
