Really good seafood menu, lots of options. Bigger menu than some clam shacks with some really good deals during the week. Went back a second time another day just to try the desserts - were glad we did.

Recent meal there was good. Waitress was a bit flustered and unsure of prices. No beer prices on the menu proved to be confusing. Our food was good. Not a place for "Fine dining" but adequate, and if anything, there are too many menu choices. Menu a bit confusing. Overall, for a quick meal or beer, it's o.k.

We returned to Mikes while visiting in Wells. We went in the late afternoon and were greeted and seated promptly. We shared a bowl of wonderful seafood chowder. There was plenty of seafood---scallops, shrimp, clams, and haddock---swimming in a deliciously light buttery broth. The chowder was hot and tasty. We ordered a fisherman’s platter to share and were pleasantly surprised... More

My sister and I ate here just a few nights ago. It was excellent! The best fried clams I have ever had! The lazy man's lobster is to die for. Lots and lots of lobster… Tails and claws. Our waitress Katie was a doll and constantly was making sure we had everything we needed and were enjoying our meal. The... More

My husband and I decided to eat here for dinner. We both loved our dinners. We liked the stuffed mushrooms. He had the stuffed haddock which was good. I had the broiled seafood sampler which I enjoyed as well. My husband actually purchased a shirt from their attached store/ gift shop. My husband wears this shirt all the time when... More

Stopping by for an early dinner, we chose to sit in the spacious sports lounge with its comfortable seating. We've had great seafood at Mike's in the past and were pleasantly surprised this last time with the happy hour menu that featured a whole chick (about 1 1/4 pounds of lobster for you non-Maineahs!) with cole slaw and fries for...

There's a walk up take out window, and a huge indoor dining area with a great wait staff. Best fried clams ever. Fried shrimp was great too. Huge menu that offers roasted chicken, steaks, lobster, pasta, and of course lots of seafood. During summer months, this place is hopping for a reason. Food comes quickly. If you can't find something... More

This restaurant is my "go to" whenever I am in Wells. The seafood is always fresh, as are the salads. Service is great. I love their salads with grilled shrimp and always tend to order it. This last trip, I was with my dad and he had the fried clams that were so delicious and extremely fresh.

Went to Mike's Clam Shack in December. Still wonderful!! Clams, scallops or haddock, it's all good. And they have great desserts if you have room!
