Good to check on the specials - for example, get there early for Happy Hour (drink and food specials); Monday is Happy Hour all night :) They also have All You Can Eat Crabs and other specials. While we didn't try that - the folks around us that did were very very pleased with their choices ! Great waitress and... More

We were actually staying in Rehoboth Beach and had had our fill of the "overpriced, 30+ minute wait Baltimore/Wilmington avenue tourist traps". Based upon my partners' previous visit several years ago, we high tailed up Route 1 and ended up at Mickey's Family Crab House in Bethany. This restaurant looks exactly what I want an 'authentic Eastern Shore crab house'... More

I found myself torn between a 3 and a 4 circle review. I would say a 3.5 is about right, so I rounded up. The restaurant was as I expected. It had picnic style tables and benches, was a little worn, was a little dirty, but seems standard for an all you can eat crab restaurant. The restaurant has some... More

This place is a favorite dining experience for our family. Their crab cakes are the very best of Bethany Beach. If you like casual eating that reminds you of the reason you drive so far to be here, you will love Mickeys.

Oysters Chesapeake were fantastic, broiled with crab and applewood bacon. My 6 oz crab cakes were huge and all crab, almost too much to eat. Wife's crab cake sandwich was also good.

... But on Aug. 30 when my husband and I stopped by for maybe a half-dozen crabs (we had already eaten dinner but still had a taste for crabs and were in the neighborhood), we ordered a dozen mediums with plans to take the extras back to our hotel room. I was surprised, however, to experience that at least three... More

Mickey's was good! Service was pretty good and the crab cakes were EXCELLENT. Soft shell crab left a lot to be desired and prices were pretty high overall. But, we'd return.
