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...

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!

Food is good. A little bit pricey for what you get. Can be a long wait to get in during the summer and weekends during the winter. Best time to go is for an early dinner. Then you get right in.

Our large group (12) arrived on Friday evening and were just ahead of the waiting line forming. The restaurant was busy and it was off-season. The waitress took our order and it seemed a long time to get our food. For the most part the sea food was very good and hot. The non sea food items were good but... More

Mike's has the best fried onion rings in the area. The light, crispy batter allows the sweet taste of the onion to come through. There are two sizes, medium and large, and even the medium basket was large enough for our appetizer. Their fried jumbo shrimp were tender and delicious, and really large. These are much tastier than other places... More

Had a chance to visit Mike's Clam Shack with the family and was very disappointed. My son and I shared some steamers which were good and then both of us had the Fried Clams and Scollops, which was also decent. My wife got the lobster pie which was only chewy tail meat, no claws or knuckles, and very little meat... More

Four of us who aren't big seafood eaters, but wanted a casual restaurant with good food. Interestingly from previous visits, they have great burgers which we intended on ordering, but instead three of us ordered the special of the night... all-you-can-eat clam strips and chicken tenders. Everything was delicious with great crispy fries. One ordered broiled scallops, good but could... More

Picked up an order of fried clams and shared with friends as a snack. Mike's fried clams are light, crunchy and delicious. Everyone raved about them.
