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

We visited Mike's Clam Shack on Saturday, Oct 29th. The parking lot was packed at 7PM but we only had to wait for 10 minutes. The menu is quiet extensive with something for every palate. We started off with Scallops and Bacon Appetizer. It was very good. I got Lobster since we are from an area where the price prevents... More

We ate at Mikes Clam Shack during our annual fall get-away to Maine. We have never eaten here before so went on recommendations from friends who had. We loved the atmosphere (we sat on the pub side). Overall, the food was good, our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We will eat here again.

Mike's offers a good selection of seafood. The prices are fair. The portions are very generous. Seating is quick if you're there before 5. Otherwise expect a short wait. The staff is friendly. Good family eatery.

Stopped in for some dinner here with my two small children. We drove in from Boston and both my children were being rambunctious. As soon as we walked in two very nice waitresses came over to help me with my kids. This mom really appreciated the help. I ordered a cheese pizza and it came right away. Both my kids... More

So worth the WAIT ....... It took about 30 minutes to get a table. My hubby and I ordered the Clam Chowder, Salad, and shared the Lazy Man's Lobster, and Sweet Potato Fries. The salad was very fresh and tasty. Since we enjoyed a cup of chowder and had a salad each, sharing the Lazy Man's Lobster and Sweet Potato... More

Being from Colorado, we usually eat seafood every chance we get on our vacations to New England. We shared the seafood pie and onion rings. The rings were great. The seafood pie was ok, but I've had better. The wait staff was friendly.
