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

Mike's started out with a little shack and built a large restaurant. It's amazing that the large seating capacity can put out such delicious seafood. They also have a land-lovers menu that is also great and a kids menu also.

So much so, that we ate here 3 out of our 6 night stay.Food was very good and very fairly priced.We ate in the bar area which was "seat yourself" and we never had to wait. This... More

Terrible service. Did not enjoy the meal nor the service. They are not friendly at all. I would not return there again!

Went here for dinner after a long day of outlet shopping. It took awhile for our waitress to come over. Apparently they had seated too many tables for her. We felt as if we were being ignored we waited for some time until another waitress at least got us drinks and put in our app. French onion soup was delicious... More

Having just driven across the country from California, as soon as I arrived in Maine I wanted a lobster roll. And I wanted it ASAP! I knew Wells was a great town for local Maine fair. I pulled off the interstate and followed signs to Mike's clam shack. It let me avoid the worst of the traffic on a beautiful... More

We went to Mike's at least 6 times in the week we were in Wells! We called ahead and just went and picked up the freshly cooked lobsters. They were excellent!
