“Horridly Disappointed with Mike's!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We are professional locals and brought our professional friends from Atlanta, GA to what we believed would be a great local food dining, and beverages experience on the West end of PCB our 1st experience and we were gravely disappointed, We ordered what we thought would be an appetizing oyster platter, which was extremely not fresh in smell or taste and over priced. We love local places and eat seafood weekly. We advised Management about the smell and un-freshness of products and their Manager was extremely rude, unprofessional, and combative in their Customer Service Skills. We eat out several times a week, tip service professionals extremely well, and have many friends that visit us at the beach for great local dining suggestions and experiences every year. We strongly suggest never eating any of establishments... Mike's Dinner, Mike's Oyster Bar, or Thomas's Dinner! Be sure to have breakfast at Emma's Too and Dusty's Oyster Bar in PCB for local joints they will treat everyone well with respect, fun times, and reasonable prices! :) This review was written by an established local horrified by the way Mike Thomas treats patrons and employees...I chose to spend my annual dining earnings on local businesses that deserve funds for treating visitors special not disrespectful!

We love this place. Food is always good, service is good and the staff is Friendly. Mike often helps serve and on most visits comes by the table and says Hi. Can't go wrong here

“Great Breakfast, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Ate breakfast there on a Saturday morning. Crowded (biker weekend), but got seated fairly quickly. Walking distance from many west end condos. I heard that lunch and dinner were good as well. Highly recommend!

“One of the best!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Be sure to check this place out! Have eaten in about every place in PCB and this is now my favorite. Oysters on the half shell were larger than any of the other oyster bars and cheaper as well. Shrimp and grits were " out of this world " Needs to be on Diners,Drive In's and Dives!

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stopped at Mikes Oyster Bar and had delicious raw oyster's and had a delicious seafood basket. It is located at 17554 Front Beach Road. It also has a great happy hour from 2-6 everyday and from 11-2 the oysters are $5.00 a dozen. Try it you'll love it. And is really close to a beautiful beach and pier.
