“Dependable but not a great value.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

No complaints with the food or service. Dependable food but not a great value for your buck. Menu has plenty of choices but nothing that you could not find elsewhere.

“Has gone down a little”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We went their two days ago and were disappointed with our meals, the only thing that was good was the onion rings, I had broiled haddock which was dry and also their diced potatoes which sounded by the waitress like they would be creamy were also very dry. The french onion soup was also pretty good. We were disappointed in our meal.

“WEEKEND WITH THE FAMILY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We wanted seafood and we were told about Mike's clam Shack, while looking to write the review of Mike's I noticed that the picture is not what it looks like now ? I guess the picture hasn't been updated, but the place looks a lot better on the outside then the picture shows. Well now for the review, we went here for some fish and chips and had just that, I had Haddock and chips it was very good, the fish was very light and tasty and they had a dill tarter sauce that was very good, and so many fries that I couldn't eat them. The rest of the family had the whole belly clams and the ribs, everyone like their food. We had a great waitress, Sue, she was very witty and made our experience at Mike's that much better. I'm picky when it comes to eating out and if this place was anything but good I would give it a bad review, but if it's good it's good ! I would give this place a try if your in Wells Maine.

“Labor day Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Consistently excellent food and service. The vast menu choices can satisfy anyone! Great entertainment. We had the best seat in the house-directly in front of a TV in the bar allowing us to dine while watching a Nascar race and listen to the live entertainment

“WISH THIS COULD HAVE BEEN AN EXCELLENT RATING”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We have been to Mike's Clam Shack several times as we make several trips a year between RI and ME and always look forward to a stop here. Our meals have always been delicious. We travel with family members so we do have the opinion of at least 4 people per visit. I admit our choice is usually fried (clams and fish); yes, an indulgence, but it's a "treat" for us.
On this visit, we soooooooo looked forward to a lobster roll and this is where they fell flat on their face. It was a skimpy serving of lobster so skimpy that we could see the roll on the INSIDE. Especially that lobster prices (at markets) were so low we thought it would be a very generous serving, but it was pitifully small. It will be a long time before we consider going back--too bad.
