This is a very popular place for dinner. It's busy, but the place is huge. Good food. Family friendly. I especially like their fried clams.

I did not actually eat at the Clam Shack, but Mike has a fish market right next door which is more a "take out" type of place to buy fresh or prepared food. We had lobster rolls and crab rolls!!!! Both absolutely delicious!! Nice quantity of crab and lobster on them. Prepared fresh right in front of you. He also... More

Bus loads come here for dinner.Wait times can be long, hard to find parking space at dinner time. Usually come here for lunch when it is not so crowded. Prices a little higher than other restaurants or lobster pound. Good clam chowder.

This is the place for fried and broiled seafood. Scallops are the best. I actually had the twin Lobsters as I knew that I would be finishing off half of my mother-in-laws Scallop basket. Even these small plates are more that adequate for most dinners. Atmosphere is good and staff is very efficient.

My husband and I ended up here one night for lobster since it was close to our hotel and after striking out elsewhere due to the offseason (we were here in October). We were pleasantly surprised. It's a typical casual sports bar but we went for the lobster boil. For $30 we each got a whole lobster, about 2 dozen... More

Great service and a more than all you can eat haddock dinner was just what my sisters and I were looking for after an afternoon at the theater. Since it was the day's special it was $12.95. We'd go there again anytime.

We had enjoyed take-out cooked lobsters from Mike's on a previous visit. Decided to try the restaurant this time. The menu was overwhelming in size & choices, not always a good sign. However my friend enjoyed her lobster bisque & I found their lightly breaded haddock moist & succulent with tasty vegetables. Will return on another visit to Maine.

Nice bar to sit and watch the game... Sometimes there is live music. Serve your own popcorn. If you like seafood they have it. If someone in your party doesn't like sea food then there is always burgers and sandwiches. If you like clam chowder then this is the place. They sell chowder kits that you can take home and...

We had dinner at this restaurant that was very near our hotel. I had the lobster roll which was very good and my husband had the Haddock filet and he said it was also very good. We were there at 5:00 and place already packed. When we left, there were a lot of people waiting to get in. A very... More

OUr whole bus stopped for dinner. Our guide had made reservations. We were greeted and moved into available tables. The rooms were already filling up. WE had a short and feisty waitress that had 20 years experience at Mike's. She handled us with skill and speed. We had a good meal and very good service. This a large restaurant that... More
