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,

We go to Maine a few times a year. We always stop at Mikes. It can be busy, but worth the wait. Always good, always fresh.

Although I didn't eat at the clam shack this year. It was pretty amazing last year. Most importantly is Mike's Fish Market, right next door to the clam shack. Their seafood is amazing. I stop in and buy most of my lobster here. That way you get the very best quality seafood and serve it your own way.

We have been going here for several years. We consistently find the seafood very good and reasonably priced. Although the servings are smaller this year than in the past I believe that is to keep prices down. The servers are always very attentive which aids in the wait times for a table moving along. A large selection of foods at... More
