“Great Seafood and Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I have been an avid fan of this crab house for years!!! Great quality seafood and variety. Bar Service and seating is fast and friendly. Saturday evening band starts 9-9:30 and rocks late. You will not be disappointed!!!!

“Wanna rush the Summer? Go to Mike's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great food that will make you want Summer to already be here. You can request the deck seating where you can see the water and the crabs are thick, juicy and sweet. The menu is what you would expect from a seafood restaurant, but the atmosphere is clearly crab house. That means, fast, fun, but not 5 star.
You will have fun, you will enjoy the food, and you will not go broke. Good place to bring the family for a good day

“great lobster specials”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Mike's lacks in ambiance, but service and meals are good. We came for their twice weekly lobster special. Servers provided all the tools to get into the 1 and 1/4 lb. lobsters, and the included sides made a full meal.

“Good food, above average price...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We went on a Saturday night, with my wife and 10 year old son, and it was busy with a 20 minute wait. Service was very good and they worked hard to make sure things were right.

I opted for a broiled seafood combo. The crabcake had plenty of fresh crab and was okay but not fantastic. The orange roughy and scallops were good. The salad bar was good but had a limited offering.

My son had a fried shrimp plate but the shrimp batter had lots of Old Bay and he didn't like it. My wife had the crab cakes but she agreed that they weren't special.
