Great little spot for the family. Food is always good. One of the only places open in December. Great fries. Heaping nachos were good.

Stuffed sole was very bland and stuffed with a paste like filling. My husband noted his prime rib was very good however. Service was very good. Chowder was thin and broth like.

Although our house is about one mile away, I had never been inside this immensely popular restaurant.(my wife and son both had been). Since we were having a snowstorm and didn't want to drive very far we decided to go to Mike's. My objection to Mike's both it's location and it's setup is that when you are inside you could... More

We were in town and the first night we were hungry and stopped at Mikes Clam Shack. The meal wasn't memorable for what we paid for it.

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!

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
