Family dinner, sadly we went for soft shell crabs ordered them, waited 40 minutes, and were then told there were none left. Not sure why they took our order and let us sit there waiting. Then we ordered crab cakes and steamed crabs. Both were good. Service was inattentive, needs much improvement.

Went with a large group over the weekend to Mickey's and had tremendous service and a great meal! Most of us ordered the all you can eat crabs - they were awesome! Thanks to the staff at Mickey's for their consistently great service.

I debated rating this place lower, but this is a crab house with excellent crabs (even the small and mediums), and in my opinion, ratings should be highly weighted towards crabs. Also, the fried chicken is excellent and comes with your all-you-can-eat option.

5-star - Crabs, fried chicken, beer selection for the area (Sculpin on draft is a pretty rare find). Corn on the cob is also crisp and sweet.

3-star- Crab cakes. They are not as advertised. More filler and not as flavorful than you would find in highly rated places in smaller eastern shore towns, or even Annapolis or Baltimore. Hushpuppies are ok, and kids popcorn shrimp consist of sizable popcorn over the typical mini shrimp. Less is better in this case.

We went here because we could walk from our condo and the reviews seemed ok. I think it is probably good for those who like all you can eat crabs. However, we ordered other seafood options all of which were not very good. Even, in the height of corn season, the corn on the cob was discussing and half the cornels were brown. Will not go there again!

Had dinner at Mickey's last night as usual when I am down at Bethany. Not very crowded as it was years past but there is a lot of competition and it is very pricey. The owner was out there as usual, she is nice despite appearing as imposing. We ordered a couple of beers, calamari, onion rings, dozen medium crabs ($52 a dozen) and an ear of corn. The beers were very cold as it should be. Unfortunately the timing of the service was way off and the crabs came out before everything else. They were on the smallish size this year for mediums and not worth $4+ each but it is what it is. The rest came out shortly there after. The Calamari was really good, the sauce with it seemed to be mayo based but to my surprise it worked well. The onion rings were huge, real onions and once again the best I have ever had. Crabs were light, not very fat, some had issues and many were missing claws. To our waitress's credit we mentioned that and she brought out a bunch of claws for us. Overall a good meal though once again it is pretty expensive though everything at the beach is. With a $20 tip the meal was $124+ for two. I will go again next year, traditions are strong and they have good service and pretty decent food.
