GOOD FOOD, GREAT VIEW

We decided to go here for lunch while in Annapolis. Had not been there for a long time and would enjoy the short ride and the view. We were greeted and seated right away.

My first experience at Mike's and it was pretty decent...nice spot on the water in Annapolis. Food was delicious, but the server was extremely slow. It took a while to put our orders in and to get our food. The crabs were good, nice size...I would probably try it again just to see if the service is any better, it... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner last weekend while staying at a hotel near by. We both enjoyed our meals, but I wouldn't consider it the best seafood meal I've ever had as others have claimed. Meal was a little overpriced. Service was good.

We love Mike's in the summer but nothing is better than seafood in the winter. Lunch during the week is the best time to go. Able to go right in and be seated right away. We had all appetizers for lunch. Steamed shrimp were large, hot and spiced just right. The chicken wings were ok. The winner today was the... More

My family and I visited Mike’s Crab House for the first time, and we were not disappointed. Everyone enjoyed their meals - homemade crab dip, cream of crab soup, New York strip (well done, and yet so tender), fried clam strips, seafood imperial, and the crab cake was just delicious – we ordered a few to go. We will definitely... More

Limited menu, high costs, HOLD the surplus Bay Seasoning. The event is not one to be duplicated. The inside bar is worth the experience, but set your expectations LOW or they will NOT be met!

This is the best waterfront crab house in the Annapolis area - located on the South River in Riva with outstanding dining on the deck with tiki bar in the summer and steamed crabs all year round - the seafood is outstanding - steamed shrimp, oysters, mussels, clams and crab soup. Very casual and a must go to restaurant when... More

This is a real "Baltimore type crab house" where they put down the butcher paper and bring you a tray of crabs. It is not just crabs they have a full seafood menu and a dock to tie up to if you are a boater. The food is GREAT
