First, what a great location right on the river. Second, STEAMED CRABS. We started with 2 dozen of the best steamed crabs in Maryland. And each platter had more than 12 crabs. When our party grew, the server quickly and graciously delivered another dozen. We...More

Great place for fun and food. Inside dining or outside. Long tables to share or separate tables outside. Crack your crabs and have some fun. Great tasting in an inviting location.

This place is a hidden gem, it's away from downtown and right on the water. The food was amazing and the views of the water top it all off. I will definitely be back the next time I visit Annapolis.

This place is fun and attracts a lot of people each night. The menu is wide ranging so essentially anybody will be happy to eat there. I enjoyed seafood. My friend had ribs.

Mike's is my favorite crab eating place! You cannot beat the view! Crabs are usually delicious and they are the only place I've been that has long necked clams! There's a diverse menu and a small salad bar, along with a big bar. Expect long...More

The whole crabs were great - come for that. I had the cream of crab soup and stuffed shrimp: these were slightly below average. The crab on top of the shrimp (which were overcooked) had a LOT of filling in it. However, the whole steamed...More

Initially I thought that they did. After reviewing the menu it appears that they don't serve dessert.
