Their menu had a great selection of foods, with a beer selection to match. Restaurant was very clean and had a comfortable feel to it. Some of the food could have used a little more flavor, but we also ordered simple foods so I didn't expect too much.

This is one of my family's favorite places for dinner. They have the best fried clams I have ever tasted! So crispy and flavorful! Delicious! We have never had a bad meal or a bad experience here. It's definitely a must try if you are visiting Wells. We also go to their next door establishment Mike's Fish Market and Lobster... More

My family & I go to this place whenever in Maine. Price is average for a touristy town. Have tried at least 5 other places in area and always come back to Mike's. They have a varied menu so if only seafood is not your goal you can get steaks, chicken, Italian meals.

We always go to Mike's and have never been disappointed. They have a gift shop to remember the great occasion. The food will astound you and the lobster salad is to die for. You really get a great deal of lobster and it won't break the bank. It is really easy to find, just off Rt. 1 and there is... More

We were here yesterday at 2:00 pm, pretty busy but, that did not stop the good service and excellent food. Sat at the bar and had the bacon wrapped scallops and crab cakes. Both of us were very satisfied as usual. Great selection of draft beer. We will be here for five more days and will eat here often. Paul... More

This place has tons of seafood options and then some. I had a regular half and half order of gulf shrimp and scallops. This is a ton of food for the money! This restaurant is also kid friendly which is a plus.

I've been coming here for years and have always enjoyed it, and have always referred people.. "You're going to Wells?, you HAVE to eat at Mike's". It's still pretty good food and a great alternative to the formality of some other establishments up there. No need to dress to impress, standard " no shoes, no shirt, no service policy here,...
