Good food but have to usually wait for a table. Lobster roll is excellent. Hard to get a table to sit out and enjoy the view in the summer

We go at least 1-2 times a week. Food great. We Love Mike's. Closes at end of October and reopens first day of spring. Both times are really crowded. Line out the door and wraps. Great place to bring a boat and enjoy the time.
