“You've got to try this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We found this place on our first trip to Maine and came back for the second time in August of this year. It was much busier than in May, but the food was great. The service was good. The atmosphere is pleasant. This is a great place for large groups as well as couples. Make sure you try the lobster stew. OMG, it's just cream, butter and loads of lobster. It may seem pricey, but you get the equivalant of at least a small lobster in a bowl. It's worth the trip!

“worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We went to York Beach on a Saturday night only to find that the restaurant we wanted to eat in was closed for the season. We had seen Mikes on our way down rte 1 to Ogunquit so we went back there. The line was long but it was worth the wait. I had the fish sandwich and was expecting a square of fish on a bun. Instead I got almost a full fish fillet so large it was hanging out both sides of the bun. It was lightly breaded and was fantastic. The others in our party had clams etc and everything was great.There was live music in the bar and the entire place was just full of life. Be sure and eat here! they have a great menu with something for everyone (Italian food, hamburgers, fish, steak, prime rib etc)

“Too much lobster?!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

My husband and I recently spent a week in Wells and enjoyed a delicious lunch at Mike's. We were so pleased with our meal (broiled haddock) that, on our way out of town at the end of our vacation, we went through Mike's drive-thru to get a quart of lobster stew to bring back to Vermont. The ladies at the take-out counter (on 9/22/12 at approx 1:30 PM) were very pleasant and efficient.

We enjoyed our lobster stew the next day and it was SO FULL of lobster!! If there was any issue with the stew, it was that there wasn't enough broth! What a good problem to have! What little broth we had was sooo good . . . buttery and creamy! Can't wait to go back next year and get more!

“What a Joke”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This was the worst restaurant I have eaten at possibly ever. The food almost all tasted and looked like it had been taken out of a can or pulled out of a bag from the freezer. The ranch dressing was nasty right out of a plastic bottle, The fries and fried zuchini tasted fishy like they had been fried in the same oil as a lot of fish items. The waitress was there right when we sat down, but once we got our food we never saw her again until it was time to get our check. many of us had ordered soda pop to drink and had to get up and go around the corner to the fountain to get our own refills. I would never go here again and with so many other amazing options in the ogunquit area I would never recommend this place.
