    I like Mike's! I am usually down there in the off season so not crowded and crazy busy. I have always had a great time with friendly staff and great food and do recommend this as a stop for friends.

    This place is well known for it's fried seafood menu, and more recently for it's large sports oriented bar. Sometimes bands or singers. Locals love the bar. Now serving breakfast.

    Get the lobster stew. To die for!!! The crab and scallop stuffed fish was also great! Busy but lots of seating, so you won't wait long

    Great seafood & Lobster Stew. So far we have yet to be Disappointed. And the Desert menu is wonderful. The strawberry shortcake is awesome.

    Ok--not great. Lobster roll was stuffed and the fried clams were tasty. Lobster stew full of lobster but not seasoned, and it was fairly pricey too.

    It's very hard to put a foot out of place here with the food. Quick and friendly service and the lobster is always excellent.

    Clam strips and lobster stew is a great sharing combo, leaving room for ice cream!

    The Chicken Pot Pie (No Veggies) was phenomenal, as well as the fried shrimp.

    If they are going to sell soft shell lobsters at the take out they really should let you know

    Do not order the baked stuffed haddock. Fish swims in water and stuffing had no taste or seasoning. Mikes special stuffing is not very special.
