Ike's Famous Crabcakes is more than just crabcakes. Try the fried grouper "royale" style with fresh cut chips. You won't be disappointed. This is a great little stop on the boardwalk for both big and little kids. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The kids loved the souvenir buckets that their meals came in. This place is a must while in OC.... More

We visit the boardwalk location each trip. The crab cake sandwich is tasty and the homemade chips are great when cooked properly. We tried the scallop entree and it was delicious. The kids meal come s in a cute sand pail and shovel keepsake.

This was a nice stop for dinner. Good quality food and plentiful amounts. My shrimp dinner had at least 7. Cute dinners for kids served in plastic pails they can take home. Small seating areas but moved quickly. Little to no vegan or vegetarian options but that's not why you're going. :-).

We enjoyed the calamari, crab cake sandwich basket with fresh made chips. It was a little higher in price than I would prefer for a sandwich.. the sandwich isn't that big. I have had better crab cakes but their's are pretty good. I am not a big chip person but their chips are awesome and fresh. I would eat here... More

So glad to have an option on boardwalk to eat other than pizza! A must stop! We make it a point to go here every time we are in OC.

Had their crab cakes at Market Day. Fabulous. Went to Ike's for supper. A bit loud, on the boardwalk, but great, fresh seafood-crabcakes, calamari, tuna bites. Friendly service. Good salad. Eat here each time in OC.

We always enjoy Ike's fish sandwiches when we are on the OC Boardwalk. The fish is always fresh and piping hot. We always order the sandwiches which come with homemade potato chips.
