After many hours in the car with another three hours left to go, we were hungry & needed a break. We found Mike's Clam Shack after I asked for a recommendation at the nearby visitor's center. It was midweek in December & we wanted someplace good yet close to the highway. What a great restaurant! If we every get up... More

When you need more options than just seafood for the family, this place works. My kids love the steak tips.

while vacationing my hubby wanted to find a place to watch the football games. He isn't a drinker so didn't want just a small bar. This was recommended. Pleasant surprise, the place is HUGE sports bar like atmosphere but family oriented. Free popcorn, took a seat in the large back room where the bar is. Too many TVs to not... More

Stopped in for food to go, went to bar to wait. Didn't even finish drink before food was ready, that's a good thing. Went back for the band, a good time.

Had the baked haddock. Not a lot of excessive seasoning, so the freshness of the fish shown through. My husband indulged in the fried clams. He said they were the best he's had.

It's much bigger inside than it looks from the road. Friendly staff and the food was good. My favorite seafood is scallops and they had them fried or baked. I tried them fried and they were very good, fresh, tasty and cooked just right!

Any time you're on the coast of Maine, your food should be seafood. I wanted clams, whole-belly is the only way to have them! The tourist crowd is much diminished in November so seating is not usually an issue as we were seated immediately. Plenty of room today. We were greeted by our server who took our beverage order when... More

We visited Mike's Clam Shack on Saturday, Oct 29th. The parking lot was packed at 7PM but we only had to wait for 10 minutes. The menu is quiet extensive with something for every palate. We started off with Scallops and Bacon Appetizer. It was very good. I got Lobster since we are from an area where the price prevents... More

We ate at Mikes Clam Shack during our annual fall get-away to Maine. We have never eaten here before so went on recommendations from friends who had. We loved the atmosphere (we sat on the pub side). Overall, the food was good, our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We will eat here again.

Mike's offers a good selection of seafood. The prices are fair. The portions are very generous. Seating is quick if you're there before 5. Otherwise expect a short wait. The staff is friendly. Good family eatery.
