We come from Akron Oh to eat crabs every couple of years and Mikes was always #1. This time service did not exist and we complained to the hostess twice about our poor service and nothing changed. Our server was Nicole and if she waits on you leave immediately!

We were a party of 20+ The staff was great, and everyone was happy with their meals. Crab cakes, oysters, lobster - all were great. But they don't do separate checks - so be for-warned.

If you like blue crab, then you have to hit Mike's. Their crab cakes are also some of the best I've had. Large, tender chunks in softball-sized cakes. Your right on the water too.

We went here for crabs last Sunday. It is a fun place. We could watch the football games and have absolutely great crabs. Definitely on my go-to list now!

Had dinner her after a long drive. The rock fish was good not great. I like that our waitress was honest about the fish that was fresh versus frozen. I would like to see a vegetable as an option or another healthy choice. Maybe even a sweet potato as a choice. The sinks in the bathroom are a challenge to... More

We were turned on to Mike's by our hotel staff and we were very satisfied. My wife and I had the salmon and spinach special and the orange roughy,both of which were excellent. The view and ambience eating on the deck was absolutely wonderful.

Mike's has always been one of our favorite restaurants. Lately, however, they seem to be having trouble maintaining sufficient wait staff. Once again after being told we would have to wait an hour, when more than half the tables in the restaurant were empty, we left and went elsewhere. Get it together Mike's. You are losing your loyal customers.

My visit was with a large group. I received the wrong food .I ordered broiled seafood combination but received the fried plater. Everyone at the table was eating while I waited. The French fries were cold, the Cole slaw was fresh but tasteless. When I asked for cocktail sauce the waitress grabbed the persons next to me and put it... More
