Terrible service. Did not enjoy the meal nor the service. They are not friendly at all. I would not return there again!

We come to the Ogunquit area every year for my birthday and always return to Mikes. It did not disappoint. Food was superp. Service exceptional. A true Maine must.

We went to Mike's at least 6 times in the week we were in Wells! We called ahead and just went and picked up the freshly cooked lobsters. They were excellent!

stopped in for fried fish lunch special...it was ok, not great. Very good turkey sandwich, but kinda pricey. Food was ok -- but, not out of the park.

My husband and I and several friends went to Mike's Clamshack the first week of August- 2015. The food was great and the service outstanding. Each of us enjoyed our entrees and were not disappointed in the least. The only negative thing we all say was about the wait time. Our wait time was 45 minutes. We did go on... More

Great food great service. Consistently good. Try the clam strips. You won't find any better. There is usually a wait in the summer but it is well worth it,
