Five of us were treated to over the top friendly and excellent service. So nice to have service with a smile! And also she wasn't afraid to recommend choices. We were all very pleased with our selections. I liked the fried clams, but didn't love them. Guess I'm a bit of a fried clam snob and have another local spot... More

We went to Mike's for afternoon cocktails while waiting for friends. The bloody Mary's were delicious and the bartender very friendly. We didn't eat but we saw what was coming out of the kitchen and it all looked really good. The atmosphere is great, pub style and they have live entertainment on weekends. Fun, lively atmosphere!

We passed this restaurant on our way to the hotel and their sign advertised live music that night so we decided to check it out. We sat at the bar and ordered a couple of apps and beers. Great atmosphere and the bartenders were friendly and helpful, Food was good but we really enjoyed the band and even danced. They... More

After many hours in the car with another three hours left to go, we were hungry & needed a break. We found Mike's Clam Shack after I asked for a recommendation at the nearby visitor's center. It was midweek in December & we wanted someplace good yet close to the highway. What a great restaurant! If we every get up... More

When you need more options than just seafood for the family, this place works. My kids love the steak tips.

while vacationing my hubby wanted to find a place to watch the football games. He isn't a drinker so didn't want just a small bar. This was recommended. Pleasant surprise, the place is HUGE sports bar like atmosphere but family oriented. Free popcorn, took a seat in the large back room where the bar is. Too many TVs to not... More

Stopped in for food to go, went to bar to wait. Didn't even finish drink before food was ready, that's a good thing. Went back for the band, a good time.

Had the baked haddock. Not a lot of excessive seasoning, so the freshness of the fish shown through. My husband indulged in the fried clams. He said they were the best he's had.

It's much bigger inside than it looks from the road. Friendly staff and the food was good. My favorite seafood is scallops and they had them fried or baked. I tried them fried and they were very good, fresh, tasty and cooked just right!

Any time you're on the coast of Maine, your food should be seafood. I wanted clams, whole-belly is the only way to have them! The tourist crowd is much diminished in November so seating is not usually an issue as we were seated immediately. Plenty of room today. We were greeted by our server who took our beverage order when... More
