“Great fun find - good food”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Off season at the shore and had a great lunch on the water at Mike's. The people were so friendly - at the shore tables on the water and a fantastic lunch. You go up and order, pay then and it is delivered to the table of your choice. I recommend the lobster roll sandwhich and my husband had the grilled grouper sandwhich - both were great. A little cool and windy that day but we sat in the tables in the sun and it was fine.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Been meaning to write this review for awhile. Went there at the beginning of Aug with 4 other people. Three ordered lobsters which were terribly overcooked and came out rubbery. How in the world can a seafood restaurant overcook a whole lobster. You time it and pull it out of the pot. Rather basic. My culinary skills are far from perfect but I never messed up boiling a live lobster! Also, I ordered grilled swordfish which came out totally overcooked and dry. Shame of it was, was that it was a very nice piece of fish. I do have to say that the large order of clams that we shared for an app were very tasty which makes the entrees that were overcooked puzzling. Ironically, the best dish was the chicken parm that my daughter ordered, which was surprisingly good. One of our group had gotten take out the summer before and had a good experience. So I don't know if I'd role the dice again. Reviews seem to either very,very good or "here's a dead horse shoe crab for you."

“filthy restaurant”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Purchased fish from Mike's Fish Market for years and was always satisfied. Decided to try his restaurant. Big mistake. The picnic tables were dirty as well as the floor. A waitress had a plastic pale with dirty water in it that she was wiping tables off with. Looking at the menu I noticed the prices were higher then most of the air conditioned area restaurants in Sea Isle and Avalon and Cape May. We left and ate in Avalon.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We went here with a group of seven and had such a great time! It was the typical beach type, where you order up front, eat on picnic tables, with paper towels, and byob. Our food was delicious, service quite good, and all in all a very fun experience! There are always huge crowds, which speaks for itself.
We will certainly go back!

“Fun place to grab a quick, delicious meal on the back bay”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We just plain like this place: from the picnic tables to the menu, to the great customer service. You can sit on the back bay (albeit under cover if it rains) to enjoy fresh seafood, prepared as well as anyone can prepare seafood that isn't fine dining. Just short of that, and still very, very good! Fun place!
