This restaurant on a side street in Hanover specializes in crabs, however, I was not hungry enough to eat some of the steamed crabs so I decided to get a Salmon BLT while my friend got a fried cod sandwich because she does not like crab. We also shared a big order of hush puppies, which were the highlight of... More

I was born and raised in Maryland - I'm picky when it comes to my crabs and seasoning. I came here for my birthday and had a blast with my husband and close friend! I set my bar high when it comes to how crabs are cooked and with what seasoning They did not skip out on the old bay... More

Stopped for a bite of yummy seafood with my mom! Nice amount of parking, no wait, friendly staff and delicious entree and sides! Portions were generous! Food was fresh and really good! I'd call myself a critique of Cole slaw and sweet potato fries and these were some of the best. Really. If you're looking for a high end restaurant... More

The food here is outstanding. The crab legs are probably about the best I have had. The staff is SUPER friendly and accommodating! If you are in the area I would definitely recommend it. There is not a ton of seating so sometimes you have to wait, but it is well worth it!!!

Went to big mikes with my brother for some seafood. Big mikes always has great crabs and seafood❗️I talked him into the softcrab sandwich and we got some hard crabs to share. Great thing is that you can bring your own beer.

Absolutely the best crabs ever. The staff was courteous and very friendly. The crabs were large and full with nothing small snuck in. Highly recommended.

If you are looking for fancy, this is not your place. Also, the prices on the menu posted here are way out of date. My entree was 25% more than what is listed on the menu on this site, and the others in my party paid anywhere from 15 - 30% more than what is listed here. That said, the... More

For a place that you could easily drive by and not even notice, Big Mike's does not disappoint. We usually take out as in-house service tends to run a bit on the slow side (friendly, just slow). Love the hush puppies and cream of crab soup. And the two times we've gotten bushels of crabs have been OUTSTANDING <-- and... More

Passing through, we stopped on Sunday for lunch as this was one of few places we saw open. I had the crab claw sandwich which was just ok. My wife had the cheeseburger and our daughter had ranch burger, both were very disappointed. Not bad, not good, just blah. No beer or wine available. Large crowd ordering steamed crabs, so... More
