We dined at Mike's Clam Shack recently while on a family trip. The restaurant is on the main street at Wells Beach. It was a cold and wet Maine spring day and the Haddock lunch time special was tempting at $11.95. The fish was tasty and the meal came with coleslaw and french fries. The lunch size is quite generous.... More

We stopped by for an early dinner. We enjoy sitting in the lounge area where there are different types of seating...bar, high tables, and comfortable benches. A special that night was a 1-1/4 lb lobster with cole slaw and fries for just $15, a deal! The seafood is always delicious and prepared just right. Selection of beers is plentiful. We've... More

Went for lunch with 10 friends. I ordered the fried Seafood platter which was so much food I ate it a second day. The waitress didn't roll her eyes when we asked for separate checks, either! Nice, casual "come as you are" family restaurant

We go there and always eat in the bar as there isn't a wait. Otherwise you'll wait at least an hour during the peak season. Worth the wait. Food is consistent and great service.

We always enjoy a haddock dinner as it is so fresh and cooked just right. The atmosphere is perfect, too.

Really nice family restaurant. Great seafood especially. Tend to be busy during the summer but well worth the trip. Seafood market next door. Service is excellent.

The receptionist at our hotel recommended this place as it has a kids menu. The kids loved their food. I enjoyed a reasonably priced whole lobster but my wife's fish dish was a little bland. Food was simple but plentiful. Service was very good.

I ordered the fried shrimp with onion rings. Well the entire meal was the greasiest mess I had ever experienced. You could actually see the shine of the oil on the food. It was also soggy. Then I recalled having been there several years prior and experienced the same thing with the fried dinner. When I mentioned it to local... More

& we sure did pick a good place! The prices were very reasonable as well. Older looking place but with a good family & friends environment, make sure you don't go into Mikes seafood market instead because we did! LOL
