With crabs in season and its abundance, you'd think that crabs were inexpensive. You'd be wrong!! $35 for 6 crabs at Mike's! A crab should cost no more than $3.00. I had scallops - small portions; my mom had stuffed filet of sole. OMG. I never saw a smaller filet of sole in my life. Must have been maybe 3... More

It was our anniversary and my husband wanted to take me for crabs, he knows he runs a very tight race with my all time favorite food. Normally I pick the crab places but he wanted to surprise me. It was pretty crowded when we got there and were told a 20 minute wait, but it wasn't that long and... More

Extremely busy restaurant on the South River in Annapolis. We were fortunate that our wait time was not as long as expected. We were seated in the bar which was quite loud. Other than being unable to talk while dining, the seating turned to our advantage when the karaoke began. We actually stayed on to hear some of the local... More

Lots of people, parking lot was almost full. 15 min wait for party of two. Not bad considering they were packed. The crabs were in. We had fried founder. Two very large pieces with salad bar & baked or french fried potatoes. Fish was good, fresh & not greasy but I have had better. Waiter & staff were very pleasant... More

Our hotel in Annapolis recommended this restaurant to us when we asked for the best place to get crab cakes and fresh seafood. Wow, was he exactly correct. It was very busy, but service was excellent. The crab cakes were some of the best I've ever eaten. They have a good salad bar and a great drink selection. We were... More

Mike's is situated right on an inlet and has a gorgeous view. I went there on a Friday at lunch time and it was packed. With great crabs, a bay breeze, and great food, I can understand why. Definitely worth going to!

We went here for lunch on a Sunday and it was so crowded that there was an hour and a half wait for an outside table and an hour for an inside table. Since we just wanted something quick we sat at the bar which was also crowded but we were able to get two seats when someone left. We... More

We love Mike's Crab House! The outdoor seating on the water is our favorite. We don't get there very often, but every time we're in the area we stop at Mike's. This past visit we drove several hours out of our way just to stop there! I went for 1/2 dozen crabs and they were the best I ever had.... More

Nice location on the water - though the patio was full and we had to eat inside. Had the soft shell crabs... what a treat and what a mess. They don't provide bibs so I draped paper towels down my front - caught most of the off-fall. Also enjoyed the clams and my wife loved her crab cake. Seemed a... More
