The service is great. The food is excellent. If you love Strawberry Short Cake you have to try it at Mikes. It is the best in Maine and absolutely the best I have ever eaten. The ribs are very good. We have eaten there numerous times and we have never had a bad meal.

Mike's is always a go to for us. We dine there quite frequently. My advice is to get there between 4&5 for dinner, otherwise, there is usually a 20 minute wait, which isn't even bad. I'm a huge fan of the prime rib especially grilled with garlic. They have a good child's menu as well. My son loved the chicken... More

I'll be dreaming of the clam chowder. I'll convince myself to vacation here every year for the lobster roll. Great service, atmosphere, and menu.

We shared a seafood platter with lots for 2. All was delicious and especially enjoyed the fried clams. Great service and nice touristy ambiance. Not fancy but great for being comfortable eating lobster etc. Prices are reasonable for the food quality and portions. We will return!

We ate here the last night of vacation which was a Thursday. It was busy but not that crazy. The four of us were seated within 20 minutes. My son had the surf and turf, lobster and steak for only $28 which isn't bad. I had clams and scallops, they were great. My wife and daughter in law had clam... More

Best lobster roll in Wells! Large chucks of lobster meat with only a tiny bit of mayo to hold it together. No lettuce and served on a buttered hot dog bun. $18.50 and it includes a cup of chowder. Not a bad deal.

Always a busy place! People really seem to enjoy the fried seafood dishes but I was in it for the lobster. Market prices are competitive. Dine in the lounge for faster seating. Lobster was cooked properly but served on a tray...very bizarre so I requested a plate. My first visit to Mike's several years ago was the best this one... More

Stopped for a lunch. The meals included a scallop roll that was very good and a clam strip roll that was OK. Nothing included with either, not even a small bag of chips. For the price, even a tiny bag could be part of the deal. Again it was average but there are other places on Rt 1 that are... More
