Staff is great and the lobsters are always fresh. Never had the Clams here but I'm sure they are good as well. Prices are "market" so don't bother shopping around for price elsewhere

We recently ate at Mike's Clam Shack and it was delicious. I had fried scallops which were lightly breaded, tender, and simply delicious. The others in my party had various fish, shrimp dishes and all were declared delicious as well. There was a small wait---but...More
