While in Maine, it must be lobster. We stopped for a lobster dinner at Mike's Clam shack. We were not disappointed. The service was prompt. The server was courteous and friendly. The food was great. Highly Recommend!!

Not a fan. Everything is fried and it tastes like everything is fried in the same oil. Food is inexpensive and you get a good portion but ......not the best food.
