Small crowded. Good service and good food. Coffee was not good. Would go back in a pinch! High priced juice and coffee.

Found this place on last day. Don't go for looks from the road. Nice menu with good local atmosphere and large menu. Quality and service very good.

Great breakfast place. Very lively and the staff are friendly. I had a huge breakfast wrap with hash browns inside. Needless to say I didn't need anything besides a small snack for the rest of the day - they give you plenty of food. It's right next to gallery that sells paintings using lobster trap wood for frames.

We got multiple tips from locals ( Captains, mates, hotel staff, even waitstaff at other restaurants! ) that Mangrove Mike's was THE place to go for a great breakfast, and lunch. We stopped in for lunch after shopping next door at the Lobster Trap Gallery, and everyone was right! The food here is great, at reasonable prices. My wife had... More

Big portions, incredibly fast service, and so much to look at (marine life murals and maps, angler artifacts) on the walls. It's in a strip mall so you might miss it. Look for the big Sunset Motel sign and the huge fake shark hanging outside.

Went to Mangrove Mikes for breakfast. yesterday morning. The food was great and so was the service. So happy we found this restaurant on the way to Theater of the Sea. Would go again if in the area.

Fun atmosphere- every space covered with pictures, photos, painting.... Sandwiches OK--several fresh fish offered but the grilled hogfish was not particularly tasty, rather flat, actually. Good iced tea. "Art" gallery next door on one side; fish market on the other. Local fun atmosphere and friendly service=4; our lunches =3. Big menu for breakfast or lunch, will try something else next... More
