Four of us who aren't big seafood eaters, but wanted a casual restaurant with good food. Interestingly from previous visits, they have great burgers which we intended on ordering, but instead three of us ordered the special of the night... all-you-can-eat clam strips and chicken tenders. Everything was delicious with great crispy fries. One ordered broiled scallops, good but could... More

Picked up an order of fried clams and shared with friends as a snack. Mike's fried clams are light, crunchy and delicious. Everyone raved about them.

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!
