Wanting fried clam strips, we chose Mike's. The clam chowder we had the last time was good. We called ahead for take out. Drive up to the take out parking spots, park, retrieve your order from the friendly staffer at the window. We paid with a credit card at the window. The portion was a pretty good size. They also tasted good. The second clam strip that my wife picked had a hair attached. We returned, and the friendly staffer immediately got the manager, who sincerely apologized, and gave us a full refund right then and there. She also asked if there was anything that she could get us, and we asked for a replacement order. She put a rush on the order, and it was ready by the time we had walked a few feet back to our car. The replacement order was free. Mike's did the right thing. We will return. Tartar sauce come with the order.

Well we are not wolves but we had spent time with a pack and we were hungry. Service was pretty good but they didn’t refill our drinks. Food was good but sort of small portions except for the steamer plate. Kind of expensive considering we had no alcohol and kids meals.

First time here and the place is huge with lots of parking. Our server Desi was wonderful. Wish we could say more for the food. We each got a regular size half and half fried seafood dinner. I got calamari with gulf shrimp and hubby got clam strips and scallops. It all tasted good but it was all "soft" in texture. No crispness. With one soda bill came out to just under $60.

A nice lage sized restaurant with plenty of spacing. Food was brought pretty quick, and was very good. Our waitress was very pleasant. She checked on us several times. I would go back

This is a large popular restaurant in this area that stays fairly crowded all the time, so by default they must be doing something fairly right to have this type of business. Prices are basically average for the area and the food is prepared and presented well. It's heavy on the fried stuff so not extremely healthy with very limited vegetables. We ordered the lobster pie and it was quite good, not the best we have had, but decent. Service was average but a little harried. Good enough to return and try again, but not exactly memorable. Regardless it's very popular so plan accordingly.
