Food was good! Servers nice. Experience unnecessarily stressful. Group of 19 needed 4 checks, they dont split checks. If you have a large group and no one paying the entire bill, pass this place by. Its not worth the stress. Turned a nice experience sour....More

Very family friendly restaurant on the river. Loved the crab cakes. Best I have had. Little pricey, but good. Service was friendly but slow because the place was packed. Would go back because of the crab cake.

Was at the top of our list to stop at Mike's when we were visiting Maryland for the weekend. Brought back lots of memories. The cream of crab soup and crab cakes were fantastic - as always!

I had been looking forward to trying Mike's because my boyfriend loves it, so when we were in the area on vacation, we stopped in. I was a little underwhelmed, but I don't want to give the food a bad review because I would certainly...More

This is an old fashioned crab house with fresh seafood and crabs. They were tastefully prepared, served promptly, and yummy.

I go to Mike's maybe at least twice every month. I love their crabs. They usually have jumbo sized crabs available. When they don't, I still feel satisfied after eating large sized crabs. I also love their raw oysters. I just ate at Mike's tonight...More

David, a few points. First, have you picked crabs before? If you have not, then order one per person at the table, have the wait person show you how and then order a crab cake platter for everyone at the table. Picking... More
