Mikes has very good food and is very busy. I don't like to wait so if you go around the corner of the building they have a little take out area with seats so you can eat right there or call in your order. It is very fast. I had fried clams, clam chowder, onion rings, bacon cheeseburger and scallops. All were excellent.

Great seafood and prime rib! We had a group of 7 and were seated rather quickly (15 mins) and got great food. We would've been back had we had more time, but every time we went by again there was a line out the door. We lucked out! Would definitely go again - the fried clams were delicious as was the prime rib!

THis is a year round place with wait staff who have been around for a long time. The seafood was great and so was the service-a fun place to eat.

Whole belly clams in the fried lunch special and the one + 1/8 pound lobster special was ample to the point of taking a while to eat. Visited on a Monday afternoon after 1 pm and no line.

Recommended by the Hampton Inn owner so we went there the first night in town - and the 3rd night - and the last night! We had the baked haddock in casserole, this was to die for! Also tried the fried scallops and these were the biggest I have ever seen - cooked to perfection! Baked scallops were equally good and finished our trip with the seafood platter. This was piled high and tasted great. The atmosphere was casual, friendly and just a joy to be at. We will definitely return when in Wells.
