“Great First Night in Maine”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Picked Mike's because any place with that many cars on a Tuesday night should be good. Super friendly staff on the front door and great wait staff. Our meals were all terrific. I had the stuffed sole special...yum! My husband had surf and turf with to die for clam strips... light and tender. And my son had a hugh hamburger. Fabulous meal!

“Quintessential Maine Lobsta!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We've eaten at Mike's several times over the years and we've never been disappointed. They make delicious lobster rolls and fish and chips.

“Not enough food for the money you spend.”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch with my wife and friends. Ordered the Lobster Roll which came with fries. The roll was of average size with a couple of good lobster chunks. The menu stated it comes with fries. There were 10 on my plate and nothing else. I was not impressed specially since I paid 16.00 dollars for the plate. I expected more for my dollar.

“Maine Diner”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Long line of people waiting to be seated. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Food is good and worth waiting for. Suggest make plans especially on weekends, to go late lunch, early dinner. Prices are reasonable. Good value for your dollar! Will visit several times during the summer for sandwiches and clam chowder for lunch and for typical breakfast. Recommend to family and friends visiting the area.

“Locals Hangout”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

A Locals sports bar on a Route 1. If you keep it simple, you will be a happy camper. Burgers, lobster rolls, sandwiches and clam chowder are very good. Service is generally good and the people pleasant.
Consider it "Cheers North". If you're from the area, then everyone knows your name.

If you're in the neighborhood, stop in for a beer and a bite, hangout for a bit.
