Mike's offers a good selection of seafood. The prices are fair. The portions are very generous. Seating is quick if you're there before 5. Otherwise expect a short wait. The staff is friendly. Good family eatery.

The service (our waitress ) was great but the food had little or no taste. i was told by our hotel that the food is great at mikes. well i'm not impressed. i would next time try a not only less expensive place but a place that would be recommended by people who live in town.
