On a sunny May evening we stopped in at Mike’s Seafood in Ocean Shores to grab dinner before heading on to Seabrook. Mike’s has a fish market up front and a restaurant around the back.
The interior of the restaurant is a little kitchy – pretty typical of a lot of places in Ocean Shores. The walls are adorned with a couple of big fish and other nautical items. Nothing too tragic.
Mike’s has a good breadth of options on the dinner menu, from seafood appetizers and entrees to pasta, fish & chips and even burgers. I ordered the Cioppino, which came with a side salad (my choice) or chowder and a sourdough roll. Luke ordered the Smoked Salmon Linguini with sourdough roll, to which he added chowder for two bucks. My only questionable comment about the Cioppino was that it was a little heavy on the diced tomatos and Italian seasoning. It was still good, however, and the roll was steamy hot. Luke reported the linguini to be good and he liked that the dish offered smoked salmon instead of just plain old salmon. The chowder was good and did not appear to be from a can.
Somebody thought the saltines rocked. ALSO – it’s a little hard to see but that lovely green bib (crafted from a Goodwilled plastic tablecloth) is embellished with a skull & crossbones. A little ghetto but I did my best… it was my first time with the “Mini-Bedazzler.”
The service at Mike’s was great – really sweet people and the food arrived pretty quickly. Prices were moderate, not dirt cheap but not expensive. Our two entrees, a cup of chowder and one drink totalled about $35. We would totally go again. Laid back atmosphere, good seafood and nice people who didn’t seem to mind a one-year-old throwing saltine crackers on the floor. Works for me!
