Was so disappointed after reading such great reviews. Ordered T/O fried whole clams--they were over cooked with many pieces of nothing but fried batter. May seek other places to try fried clams.

One of the locales recommended by Patti at the Wells Chamber of Commerce for great lobster rolls. I ordered the regular roll and I was a bit disappointed because it seemed small. However the lobster was uber fresh, lots of claw meat, and was tender/melt in your mouth. The staff was super friendly. For the price it was well-worth the... More

Mike's has fresh, nicely cooked seafood and their own fish market next door. There are always all inclusive daily specials that are priced just right.

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!
