Editorial Review

The Food section rated this restaurant's crab cake for a July 2009 story about the area's best.

After 55 years in business, Mike's has its crab cake down pat. Each one is hand-formed of lump crab, buttery bread crumbs and Mike's own -- "better," said our server -- version of Old Bay, then broiled or fried. The price is right, but the lump meat that comes from around the globe can't compete with its similarly priced jumbo peers. These were the best in this group, for sure. But at Mike's, the steamed crabs are the draw.

Two 6- to 8-ounce lump crab cakes, $21.95
