Love Mike's! Always get a meal there when I get to Sea Isle. Wish I remembered to bring a bottle of wine. They are always helpful with ice & set-ups. This week they had a Lobster dinner for $19.95! A whole steamed lobster, coleslaw, corn on the cob and potatoes. Got the Manhattan Clam Chowder, full of clams, rich broth, delicious. We also got Swordfish, fresh, firm & tasty. I wish they had dessert but there's plenty of options nearby, so no big deal. They know what they do Best!
Food was okay, but not fantastic. Noisy and chaotic.
The food was awesome we had the ceviche, stone crab claws, oysters, clam bake, and lobster. Couldn't ask for fresher food, faster service, and wonderful staff.
Food was very good place was very clean and the people were very friendly
Let me tell ya...fabulous.
Great staff! Fabulous seafood! Fantastic atmosphere!
Fresh Delicious Incredible! Ordered the Asian Scallops and the Lobster Crab legs and Shrimp
We had the Shore Feast for Two. It was amazing. There were 2 Lobsters, 12 clams, 12 shrimp, pound of mussels, 2 ears of corn and baby red potatoes. We have to take some home. What a great place with very helpful staff
Used to love coming here on family vacation. Went this year and found out you can no longer dine in and order crab legs by the pound. You have to take them out. You can only dine in and eat crab legs from the expensive platters. Hopefully they change it next year for the crab legs. Also one of the butter containers for the bread was moldy. Hope this place isn’t going downhill
Always a favorite when visiting Sea Isle City! Awesome seafood dishes, great service! Need to get there early to avoid long wait! BYOB!!
Online prices were off by 25% or more. A bit heavy on the grease, onion rings were dark and not crispy. Mussels came in plain butter, not a garlic dipping sauce like everywhere else. We were expecting to munch out on Italian bread and sop up that juice so that was a letdown. Bad reviews don't matter though because they are always mobbed and in a great location.
Good food! Casual, bring your own restaurant.
Absolutely the best place to eat in Sea Isle City. Love their giant lobster combo platter. All other sea food items are equally tasty. They allow BYOB. They even put our drinks in ice and put it by the table. Everyone at the restaurant was very friendly, often checking on us how we are doing. We eat at this place whenever we are in the area.
Fresh, casual,fast + byob - Bring on another great year!
What a cool and unexpected place to grab some fresh seafood in October. We ordered our food at the inside market and stepped outback for a seat near the vertical heaters inside an enclosed patio right on the bay. Our "server" was a duo of inside help that manage the business and run the counter, set up the Saturday seafood buffet and juggle the customers. Very helpful and accommodating. The food was really good, classic Shore style. Just some drawn butter and old bay made our steamed and fried platters. It's BYO here and we can't wait to return with a cooler and see this place in full swing
Great seafood for your party to go
One of our favorite stops when we're at the shore!
Delicious scallops! Lobster roll had way too much lemon & mayo.
Fresh and delicious, no frills
Been going there since I was a Youngster, and I must say that tonight's meal there was one of the most satisfying I've had in a very very long time
Mass quantity seafood, as long as that's what you are expecting you won't be disappointed, get there early to beat the line, be aware all outdoor seating so it can be hot inside
Had a school trip from cape may county special services to mokes seafood ..food was delicious and hospitality was excellent
Great selection, service and pricing. Cold shrimp trays are amazing in size and taste.
Excellent food & service. Get there early for no wait time. No place better.
Honestly, this place is the highlight of my husband’s vacation every year. The food is always delicious and the atmosphere is perfect for a Jersey shore vacation. The clams in white sauce are my favorite! BYOB so be prepared!
Best seafood I've had! Definitely worth the trip. The staff are very pleasant and caring. Beautiful scenery, right on the water. Be prepared to stand in line for a little bit. Very popular place
Rude and Hung up the phone when asking about menu. 8-19 at 12:45pm
Great food and outdoor atmosphere. There were alot of people for a Tuesday night but we got in and was seated. There is alot of seating and all seats were on benches. They have a huge menu so I recommend looking at the menu before coming. You order dinner at the order here section then they deliver the food. Dinner came out fast and hot. Just be aware that the restaurant is all outdoor seating so plan accordingly.
Great place to go during the summer vacation
It was 10 of us here and we all ordered different things - everyone was very happy with their food. The food was good, just like high end sea food restaurant. The place was very clean and staff was friendly. FYI the prices were low (for a sea food restaurant). The location is beautiful right in the water...
Food is good, but would prefer not as much fried stuff.
Dockside seafood at the Jersey Shore just doesn't get any better. There's no wonder this place has been open since 1911. An absolute no brainer. Go!
Great food, large menu and the view is phenomenal. (On the water)
Place is clean and staff is very friendly. Food portions are good size if you go away hungry it's your own fault. Needs better selection of drink options.
You cant beat the staff. The food is to die for. BYOB, they cordially accommodate. If there is a line, dont fret.... from the street and 50 people out it is a 30 minute wait and worth it.
Great food, friendly staff and quick service. I'll definitely be back
Freshest seafood around.
It does get busy, but this place is 120% worth the wait! We never miss a stop at mikes whenever we’re in the area! The best for fresh seafood and a great casual atmosphere!
Great seafood at a reasonable price. Friendly service. Simple ordering set up. You may experience a long wait,but definitely worth it.
We ordered the white clam chowder,steamed clams and shrimp in a basket. All delicious!!! Atmosphere great,we were outside of the tent by the water. All staff extremely courteous and helpful
This place was amazing! Great service, atmosphere, and beyond amazing food. Huge menu and wonderful searing on the bay. Was our first time went for our anniversary and already saying we wanna go back each year now . highly recommend.
One of my favorite food spots in Sic.
Meal was fresh and delicious with huge portions. Service was outstanding. Great place for take out or casual dining
I've been going to Mike's in Sea Isle and Ocean City for 40 years. Always great selection, high quality and great service with friendly people. THE place I go for my fresh fish whenever possible.
No parking long lines.
A must it you like seafood! Mike's by far is worth every penny and then some!!
Average seafood at a slightly above average price. The place has a strange way of ordering your meal. You have to navigate your way to one of two cashiers who you then give your order and table number to and pay for it at the same time. A server then brings your meal to your table in large aluminum trays and plastic ware. Entrees are approximately $25 each with many different choices to choose from. It is also BYOB, which I was not aware of. You can purchase some warm soft drinks from them at about $2 a pop. At least the water was free. The meal portions were okay but just average flavors. Satisfied but no real WOW factor here. I would have rather spent my $90 for a meal for 2 at one of the many other standard restaurants.
Service was a little slow, which is par for the course seemingly everywhere in Sea Isle City, NJ. Ordered the dual whole lobsters. The tails were excellent, however the claws were lacking meat. For the price, I would have expected slightly larger lobsters, as I have my doubts that their listed weight (1.5 lbs each) is accurate. The platter came with flavorless, unseasoned baby potatoes. I would have liked to sea some old Bay seasoning or at least something. They were at least cooked perfectly in terms of softness. I was considering making this review 4 stars, but none of my party seemed particularly blown away with anything. To me, this is a slightly above average place that is a little slow and slightly overpriced which makes it 3 stars for me.
Just delicious! There's a reason that there is a line every night. Get in early if you want to beat the rush :)
Great Food!!! Staff friendly and helpful!! Reasonable prices! We go there to eat eat 1-2 times every year and usually have about 15 of us. Everyone enjoyed there meals!
Took my family of 5 for dinner Sunday night. We had a variety of dishes, all seafood based. My 2 Fresh Maryland Crab cakes were 75% filler/stuffing and deep fried. For $25 it should have had a higher percentage of lump crab meat I believe. My wife had chicken with lump crab meat on top and it was more of crab meat crumbles not lump. I could go on about my kids dishes but it was the same for them. I just don't think the owners realize that customers expect better quality when paying so much. We all walked out saying we won't be going back.
Great food holy cow gee wilikers was I blown away by that crab stuffed lobster, gee golly dangit
Love, love Mike's. We come every year for my birthday in June and always stop for lunch on shore day trips.
My family and I really liked the food here and the atmosphere of the place was really cool!
We stopped here on our first night of our honeymoon. We got crab legs, lobster, shrimp, and corn. ( They ran out of snow crab and gave us king crab at no extra charge) The meal was price but what seafood isn't. Everything was fantastic. Would definitely recommend this place
You can bring your drink. Good food for a good price. Simple and adorable place.
First time here.... certainly won't be the last. Great fresh seafood... excellent service... friendly and efficient....
The clams in butter / wine sauce always a homerun
Crabcakes were delicious.
The self-service aspect was very prominent as we did everything besides cook the food. Super high rates for average food.
Long wait for take out seafood, but worth the wait. Always fresh
Food was great we ordered clam chowder and crab chowder, soft shell crab and mussels with butter and garlic. Loved it. Serving time is ok, not too long, but maybe because it wasn't so full/busy. The toilet is clean. We seated near window where we can see the docks and ships. Lots of family eat here. I can see this place can be very crowded in summer.
Fresh and perfectly fried Seafood Combination. Fries are outstanding.
A must go place when vacationing with our friends. Never had a bad meal or I should say never had anything but an excellent meal.
The food is just decent, but this review is more about our experience. The place has the price of a fancy restaurant, but the atmosphere of a trailer park. The one host touched the ice in our water to break it up without gloves. Next, the size of the food is small and there was hair in our fries. A hair! The bread is stale and you have to pay before you get your food like I'm not trustworthy enough to pay after I eat. Would not recommend spending so much for a disgusting atmosphere and hair in your food.
Staff was excellent and the owner was extremely nice along with the good food!
Heads up, this place is (BYO)bring your own Alcohol. You must be seated first, then you have to order at the counter and pay. Your food will be delivered to your table. Good experience, good food and nice staff.
Awesome seafood platter! Simple and classic, and so delicious. Also great service!
Great food and great people
Mike's is a great, casual spot to either dine at on the dock or take away. I call ahead and order a lobster roll, which are almost entirely just lobster meat and very good. Just a little mayo, some celery, and a hint of lemon juice; no breading or anything significant to distract from the good stuff. Also comes with a small bag of potato chips, a side of coleslaw, and tartar and cocktail sauces. They normally put their to-go items in styrofoam, but I asked if they could do something without it and they did. If they removed styrofoam entirely then I'd be thrilled.
The workers were RUDE AS HELL!!VERY EXPENSIVE !!IF YOU LIKE BEING TREATED RUDE & WANT TO PAY FOR IT THAN THIS IS A PLACE FOR YOU!!BRING YOUR WALLET OR POCKETBOOK THEY WILL DRAIN IT!!AVOID THIS SPOT AT ALL COSTS!!
great food & huge portions!!!! definitely will be back for more!
Good food. Great atmosphere. BYOB.
It was great. Everything was good and we mite comback.
The seafood was great. The chicken sandwich good but not great. Super friendly service. Nice open and airy eating area. A great experience all around.
Friendly staff. Clean restaurant. Unfortunately the shellfish was very poor quality. The twin lobsters were difficult to remove from the extremely hard shells. One was inedible. The inside was mushy which indicates that it was possibly dead long before it was prepared. The king crab legs were very small and also very difficult to remove from their shells. The snow crab legs were also small and tasted freezer burned. Overall, very disappointed with the meal.
Good seafood. Take out or eat on their dock.
Very good fresh seafood. We always order the fried buckets and the portions are very generous. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the messed up our order (gave us scallops instead of shrimp - but the scallops were great)
Mike's is delicious! If you are looking for a laid back, low-key, feels like a family dinner...then this place is for you. Kid-friendly, gorgeous views, and clean. We've been going there for years and always enjoy it.
Love the place. Great food. A bit pricey but worth it. Steam clams are one of the best I have ever tasted.
Very good and fresh, service was great love that place.
Great food, fun atmosphere, "take-out, in-house" style, and lots of variety. It's not cheap, but it's also not overpriced and it's definitely worth it.
Delicious food in a low key BYOB.
Always fresh and delicious!
Always the place to go when you're in sea isle
I enjoy myself and I would definitely come back
Market had a good selection of fresh seafood even at the end of September. Even had a special on mussels, I couldn't resist. Bought fresh Grouper at a very reasonable price. Very pleased. It microwaved easily and tasted great with just salt and pepper and lime or lemon wedges.
I heard fabulous things about this place. So I knew there was going to be a Waite in line. It actually was not as long as I had expected. So that was awesome!! When it was our turn to be seated the hostess to 3 groups to a table at the same time and said “your number #28”. As it was my 1st time, I didn’t know what this meant. I asked if we could have outdoor seating. The hostess replied, “NO I can’t put you out there. I only have a tables for 6 people out there and another, but that ones for the owner. So you will have to sit here. Then she proceeded to give directions on how to order. It was extremely loud in there, very hard to converse with the people your eating with. Even Waite staff had to use louder voices in speaking to the customers. So at this point, it was not a relaxing environment/experience. The food was a little over cooked, but ok. VERY OVER PRICED. I won’t be frequenting this place again.
My husband and I love the food at this restaurant. We do think it is a little over priced but we love the dock seating and the service is great!
Take out stuffed shrimp looked good in case...they were horrible a tiny shrimp topped with mostly breading. Dont bother. The clam chowder & lobster bisque is good. Handy in winter to buy from market.
Dont even think. Just go. You'll thank me later. The food is out of control
One of our favorite places to eat when on vacation in Sea Isle City. So many delicious things on the menu. Our favorites are the steamers and the crab balls but everything you get will be fresh and yummy. It’s always super crowded there which is why we prefer getting take-out. It’s just as good!
Love the food and atmosphere please stop by and eat the delicious seafood.
Everything we ordered was done to perfection. I got the Captain's Fried Platter and everything was still tender and juicy, the breading was perfection. The Patio Paul was full of quality shellfish, easily crackable. BYOB. Cash tip only.
Food and service were excellent. Highly recommended.
Amazing place for great seafood.
Best pasta ever!
Went as a party of 12. We always hit this place one night of vacation. The service ppl. are super well mannered. We were thanked for coming. Oysters, clams, crab were a+. Minor, minor point: Some people thought the fried food was a lil overcooked.
Eh, swordfish was way overcooked, tuna was drizzled w lowrys teryaki, not at all impressed considering the crowd they draw. i can cook better than this any day of the week.
I used to really love this place and we had big parties so we placed big orders ($200+) with trays. The dreamers are a favorite but the past two years (about 4- 50 ct trays) the steamers were inedible- FULL of sand. Huge waste of money. So i just stoped ordering and i get my own seafood from Costco to cook. So much more cost effective and i make sure they spit their sand before steaming. I’ll still order their crab balls or cold shrimp. Otherwise i no longer spend like i used to there.
FABULOUS would be an understatement. The BEST of casual dining for fish and seafood. Quaint atmosphere with extensive menu...which has everything and more. Lovely staff--you can feel the love. I got the twin lobsters with Cole slaw, roasted red potatoes, and corn on the cob...ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Bring your reading glasses...the menu has a HUGE selection. A "must stop" when in Sea Isle...even if you are not in Sea Isle---go anyway...you won't be disappointed.
We have been getting Mike's for years, but this year wasn't so good. Sad!!!
We ordered the crab leg platter, crab cake sandwich and onion rings. Crab legs were big and had a lot of meat. The texture was good. Crab cake sandwich - was tasty, didn't skimp out on the crab meat, and came with a side of chips. Onion rings - probably the best onion rings I've had. It was big, crispy, didn't fall apart when eating it. Would definitely order this again. Would I come back? Yeah...I would order the onion rings again. A lot of people seemed to have ordered the fried platter, which I would order next time around. Service - was pretty good
Really torn on this place. The food was good and fresh, the atmosphere is cool (on a dock, the seating is all picnic tables), but the prices are insane. $25+ for most entrées! One of the perks of the shore is supposed to be premium seafood prices, but I get cheaper seafood that's just as fresh at places by me in North Jersey. There's no table service you go up and order from a window cafeteria style. The wait for food is insanely long. There's a lot of fried foods and platters, not many options to just get, say, a pound of crab legs, which is odd for a seafood place. Also, super wasteful place. All dine in orders are served on disposable aluminum trays and foam plates with plastic utensils. I can't even imagine how much trash this place produces! I understand it's busy here, but there are definitely steps they could take to be more environmentally responsible, which in turn will help them protect the oceans they make their livelihood off of!
Really good seafood. Great service.
Excellant seafood eat in or take out! Restuarant right on the water.
The best seafood I ever had... the freshest Seafood I've ever had. Mike's Seafood is hands-down the number one place to go for seafood , if I could give it more than five stars I would.☆☆☆☆☆
Basic, but fresh. The oysters were a little gritty and the snow crab legs weren’t bad.
Absolutely amazing. The crabs were some of the best I've ever had in my life! It's very casual, you order at a counter and they deliver your food to the table. BYOB. Don't forget to leave a tip for the food runners and bussers. On Thursday at 6pm we waited for about 30 minutes. Worth every minute!
Great amount of food for the price!! Was so satisfied with the service and food!!
A definite stop when we’re in Sea Isle. The mussels are incredible, we always get a few orders for the table and dip the fresh bread in the delicious marinara sauce. Although the line looks long, it’s moves pretty quick and as an nice touch the staff usually brings out fries with old bay to munch on while you wait. It’s worth the wait! We love Mike’s!
Mike’s has been the “go to “ restaurant for years and one that my
Fresh seafood. Large serving. BYOB
The only place to dine for seafood!
Great seafood at a great price, love to order their take out, already cooked but comfort of eating at home.
Owner is one great guy. Place is well run, friendly and just good.
We drove all the way from Philadelphia for this tasty place. It is a favorite and I look forward to going again
We enjoyed this place so much,,,,The food was outstanding for the price,,,we will definitely be visiting Mike's again soon, maybe before are vacation is over. The service and everything here was outstanding, nothing but high praise for Mike's, this is definitely must place if your in Sea Isle N.J.
Mike's is a long-standing tradition for family seafood gatherings in Sea Isle. Its food is consistently good, with huge portions. Service is OK, with customer ordering at a counter and delivery to the table. It is decidedly not a fancy place, e.g., no alcohol service, no place settings, paper plates, etc. Worth the visit, with repeats, when you're hungry for lots of seafood.
Even though their food is decent, it is not worth the $20+ prices. For example, my lobster mac and cheese (which came with rice and vegetables) was $26.99. As I have not eaten anywhere else on Sea Isle City, I recommend that tourists in Sea Isle City go offshore to eat so they don't get ripped off.
I'm torn by this place...on one hand they have very good seafood and the portions are really generous. (Although for my tastes though they have too much fried stuff on the menu...) The basic problem is this: you show up at early dinner time (5 pm), and after finding a parking spot nearly a half mile away, wait 30 to 40 min in line (in the sun, 89 degrees with similar number humidity) just to get a table, then wait in another 20 min line to order food. After paying fancy restaurant prices ($170 bucks for 4 people), you go back to your picnic table and wait for them to display the only thing that separates this from a cafeteria (they deliver the food to your numbered table.) Proceed to eat your admittedly very good seafood on disposable plates under a glorified park picnic shelter while sweating a day's hydration away. One saving grace is it's BYOB...would hate to imagine the bill if you had to buy any drinks other than pop! I really want to like this place, but the hassle and atmosphere really doesn't make it worth it.
Mike's seafood seems to be a staple of Sea Isle City, NJ. I wasn't impressed, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. Make sense? The staff was decent. Perhaps, getting back to impressing their patrons would be good for business. Too often these "hometown" businesses forget what made them. The bottom dollar isn't always the best business model. Just a little more effort will go a long way. By the way, premade frozen crab cakes are beneath you. Although, I did see lump non-breaded crab cakes I didn't try, but looked amazing.
Lunch was delicious! Crab sandwich topped with lump crabmeat.
Absolutely the best. Fresh seafood, perfectly, deliciously cooked. Awesome friendly service. Large portions. Highly recommended.
If you’re in Sea Isle you have to eat here. Amazing food at a reasonable price. Highly recommend!
Very good seafood. Super fresh. Family friendly environment. Lines can be 45 min long to get in on a busy night. Portions have gotten smaller over the years.
We love Mike's! Fresh prepared seafood, great atmosphere and friendly staff.
I go there for their end or beginning of the year all you can eat food is always excellent prices are reasonable I guess
Amazing service and quality food. Got the blackened mahi fish sandwich. You can order your beer from down the street. They’ll bring it to your table. Highly recommend. A+
Great seafood. Environmentally unfriendly with so many disposables...forks,knives, trays etc.
Terrific food. We used take out and enjoyed fresh, delicious fare. Whether clams, crab, or grouper, we loved it all. We make visiting Mike's a habit when visiting Sea Isle.
Best Seafood in Sea Isle. Full Stop
Amazing, fresh and hot seafood
Food is tasty, service is alright. The reason I give 3 stars is due to how unfriendly this place is to the environment. I noticed every single platter that came out was either on a foam, plastic, or paper plate. Or in aluminum containers. Now I know this is a fast pace place and all but I know this restaurant produces enough money to AT LEAST have biodegradable products, or products that are friendly to the earth. I can only imagine how much trash this place produces within an hour, especially that every single thing they use gets thrown away. Please consider more environmental friendly ideas :)
Best take out sea food in New Jersey! And the staff couldn't be nicer!!
Great food. Worth the wait!!
What an awesome meal!! They had a huge line and long wait but they moved through it quickly and serving some of the best food in sea isle city
Great place delicious seafood and wonderful time
We love local places with a story and a history. Mike's is that kind of place! We ate our lunch outside on picnic tables on a deck at this simple and delicious restaurant on a Fisherman's Alley lagoon. Great fish sandwiches and friendly service. Want the charming story behind Mike's? It's right on the menu!
Sea food was nicely done. Service was fantastic.
The food is great! I loved the casual environment, the ease of bringing your own beverage, the friendliness of the waiting staff. A wonderful place for a casual dinner with really outstanding seafood.
Very fast service, interesting venue, fantastically fresh seafood! They won't take your order at the table, you have to sidle up to the counter, and don't forget to tip!
Seriously this is the BEST seafood restaurant around. So delicious! And decently priced!
Must try this place. Good food and nice views of the backl bay.
Apparently, everyone loves this place, but truly I was not impressed. The use of takeaway containers and plastic cutlery is a real turn off to anyone who cares about the environment. I ordered “the chilled sampler” and nothing was anything close to fresh. The shrimp were waterlogged and nothing else was appetizing in the least. It’s very rare that I don’t eat a meal that’s put in front of me, but I let most of this one go to the trash. They don’t even use their own tartar and cocktail sauces; they use prepackaged stuff like Mickey Dee’s! Very overpriced for the quality of the food.
It taste amazing and the staff is great
Disappointing... Very expensive for bland food. The only thing good was the steamed clams. Won't be going back.
Incredible food! Superb service! A great seafood restaurant! I'll be back! 6&
Very nice clean Place everyone was very nice
Seafood buffet was very disappointing. Shrimp and mussels were rubbery, Flounder Florentine was cold, the lobster bisque was too sweet and void of lobster. The Teriyaki tuna had good flavor, but was also cold.
This is such a fantastic spot! My family and I were thrilled to sit on the water with delicious crabs and clams and watch the turtles swim in the bay! The staff was absolutely wonderful and super friendly! This was our first time and it's now our new favorite spot.
The seafood was delicious and the service was fast and courteous.
Not impressed to be honest; although we walked right in, sat down and had our apps in record time the food was not worth the money. The food quality was just not there. The portions are generous and the location is ideal. I like the idea of BYOB.
See Pictures. Get this! We went "where the locals go for fresh seafood" and ordered take out. Crab fingers...OUT OF A CAN FROM MEXICO! Someone goofed and put the whole can in our order. All these years we thought it was fresh local seafood. Its not! SEE PICTURES
Awesome place, very casual, great food!!
Mike's has some of the best crab cakes ever. The beer battered shrimp is amazing! The staff is super friendly. If I could give 6 stars I would!
Delicious crab meat cocktail.
