Ate at Mike's twice during our four night trip to Maine. Great food, good atmosphere and great service. Pricing is reasonable and fair. Wish we lived closer!

MIke's is in a great location on Rt 1 in Wells. There is a large bar area and several seating areas. Staff is nice and attentive. Food is average at best and it is pretty expensive for most entrees. I would recommend the Steakhouse instead, better food and similar prices

had the chance to sample maine lobsters while traveling to canada for business , stopped in Wells by chance on way home to purchase live lobsters , had a great dinner at Mike's food priced very well , service was outstanding , beer selection awesome , we had lobster of course two 1lb. for 22.00 can't beat price , but also had to try prime rib and it was incredible being from Pennsylvania we know good beef . I would also recommend next door Mike's seafood market , we took 25 1.5 lb hardshells back to Pa. and had a feast that night . There is no better lobster in the world than a Maine lobster .

Walked in on a Friday night with a party of 12 and were seated in 10 minutes! Server was great, food and drinks were excellent (Of course I was in Maine so I had the lobster) and the prices were reasonable. Highly recommended!!
