Looking for good food at reasonable prices , then this is the place to go. Good variety on the menu, both seafood and non seafood items. daily specials. Busy but moves along. Clam chowder is good but if you like thick clam chowder it is not for you.

The food at this restaurant was basic and convenient, nothing to jump up and down about. There was waiting time before being sat, the atmosphere was basic, the food was not great but not bad. The waiter was pleasant.

We were driving the coast highway and saw mike's and decided to try it out. We were interested in seafood particularly. It's a local place not a chain. It was a little pricey...we had the seafood platter which consisted of a large piece of haddock, clam with the bellies, small shrimp and large scallops. There was fries and coleslaw and... More

My wife and have been to Mikes before and have always had a good meal. The food on our last visit was very good, but the service wasn't too good. We sat in the pub and noticed the other waitstaff were pleasant and happy. I have a feeling our waitress may have been called in to work a shift on... More

Nice place to have drinks and food. Usually 15 to 20 minutes waiting line. But it is worth the wait. Friendly staff and great service. If you're in a hurry it is not the place to be but hey we're on vacation.

Mike's has been a favorite for years, but when we went this summer, we found the pricing to be ridiculous! They are taking advantage of customers who have always made this restaurant one of THE places to stop during their trip. It is no longer worth going there. For the money, there are tons of good and less expensive restaurants... More

We keep coming back here, I guess like everybody else who has ever tried this place. And, again always impressed by the quality of the food, menu and, of course, the ever courtliest and helpful staff.

Mike's is hugely popular, especially for family groups. They somehow manage to serve large numbers of people and keep it efficient and reasonably tasty. This is not the place for a romantic evening, but it is the place to get food to satisfy almost any taste, and perhaps introduce the kids to seafood they haven't tried before.
