My 23 year old daughter and I went there for dinner on Friday night and had a really good meal and good service too. Very friendly and attentive at the bar as well. Good for families and large parties. Get there early or you will have a wait!

I try to come here every time I'm in Maine because the seafood is wonderful! Being a native Mainer now living in Western NY it's not as easy to get good fresh seafood all the time. Mike's is definitely one of the best places around. A tad pricey but well worth it in my opinion!

We love seafood and this place actually turned me off of fried seafood for awhile. The place is always packed so we thought we would give it a shot but I don't know if it was an off frying night but I was not a fan.

This place is huge with a huge menu! Great family eatery. I ordered clam chowder and steamers and I've had countless orders of these all over Neww England, & these were some of the best tasting I've had in ages!!!

We had a very nice dinner here, with great service by Sarah. Clam chowder was good(could have been hotter), broasted chicken was very good, prime rib was decent, baked haddock/scallops combo was very good. Home made mashed potatoes were so good, cole slaw was decent.

We stopped in Mike's for pickup on our first night in town. We thought we could pick up a menu and place an order to pick up after running to the supermarket. The girl at the window said we should go shopping and come back but not call in the order because it would take longer. She said a pickup... More

This is my family vacation, and because we have small children we prefer to call in for takeout rather than to test the children's patience after a day at the beach. The food is excellent and we always get exactly what we order.

Dined with my husband mid-week at Mike's. Our waitress was attentive and provided excellent service. My husband had the friend clams and scallops platter. The BEST seafood dinner he has ever had!
