For me this is the best place to eat crabs in the area. They have an all you can eat special. The potato salad is not to be missed. I had the best summer enjoying sunsets and seafood with a dear friend who passed away suddenly last month. I miss him so. I'm so happy we got to spend time... More

We go with a small group for happy hour several times a month in the summer. Their happy hour apps are good and reasonably priced, as are the drinks. They have a pleasant atmosphere and nice waterfront views. We definitely enjoy the restaurant. My only negative comment is they are not open year round.

All you get out of Mike's is the atmosphere. The food was not good to horrible. I had mussels with zero flavor. The frozen package at the grocery store tasted better. The fish was very "fishy" tasting as if it were old. We won't be going back.

I felt like eating Blue crabs on Saturday, and believe it or not, drove all the way from New York to Maryland to eat them. There was a choice between small, medium and large one so I ordered a dozen of large, and I have to say that they were great, and totally worth the drive. The restaurant itself is... More

Found this place by accident and will be back for sure! Friendly people, good drinks and great food! Live music was jamming when we arrived which made the whole experience that much better.

We arrived on a Sunday evening at dinnertime to find a packed restaurant and fairly busy deck with a live band overlooking the creek; however the wait was only 10 minutes. Diners dress very casually here. The large modern restaurant with tile floors and many families eating steamed crabs or celebrating birthdays made for a loud experience. I would not... More

First time here thanks to so many favorable reviews. Went on a Sunday which our wonderful server, Marci, told us is their busiest day. The crabs were crabtastic and I was impressed that they are served with crab seasoning and vinegar without requesting. The hushpuppies were perfect and much appreciated. The corn on the cob was so tasty! And the... More

Mike's has a gorgeous and large location going for it. There were almost no happy hour specials....just a couple of appetizers and other than domestic, bottled beer, no happy hour drink specials. The wings were horrible=greasy on outside and dry on inside. The "stuffed shrimp" seemed like small frozen shrimp with a large gob of very poor, ammonia tasting crab... More

We ate outside, party of 9 (with kids) and had a great time. Beer and seafood, what more is there? The crabs are not the meatiest, but the hush puppies were out of this world.

Mike's Crab House in Riva, MD (http://www.mikescrabhouse.com/ ) has just opened a new restaurant in Pasadena (previously Windows on the Bay). They remodeled totally and have opened with many locals trying them out the past few weeks although I don't think they have yet to have the grand opening.
