Mike's was close to the hotel where we were staying so we decided to try it. Our friends had eaten there before and recommended it. I had the shrimp and mussel scampi. My husband and friends ordered the low country boils and the grilled Mahi Mahi dinner. Everything was GREAT! I will definitely eat there again and highly recommend Mikes.... More

Mike's is just a good place for breakfast or lunch. Not very fancy. You can have a beer or a glass of wine, no cocktails. Prices are very reasonable.. The oyster bar is open in the evening. There is a wide choice of how you want the oysters prepared. Mikes is located right across Front Beach Road from the Emerald... More

We have ate here off and on for two years. Honestly don't see what is so great about this place. Breakfast is the best out of all they serve. Not impressed with this place at all. They took the Imperial Grouper off the menu and it was pretty good. Won't go back if we can help it.

Mike's has a wide variety on the menu to include the oysters. I had the Panama baked oysters and they were fantastic all 2 dozen. The grouper is also fantastic. Service was great, with a smile and fast. There is plenty of room for a large party, but I'd call ahead just to make sure.

Four of us went to Mike's on a Monday around 10:30. We were seated right away and a VERY friendly waitress seated us....don't remember her name but she had worked at Mike's for 20 years. Two of us ordered the Soft Shell Crab Eggs Benedict, one had a seafood omelet and one a hash brown omelet. The person with the... More

This diner was recommended to us and was well informed before we visited. Our 1st visit was Monday nite Jan. 23rd. We WERE TOLD the menu was higher priced for dinner - and it was. The atmosphere was friendly and was greeted by the owner/mayor. I guess the only complaint was that we had to ask our waitress TWICE for... More
