The restaurant was clean. The parking lot was accessible. The hostess was very friendly. The food was exceptional. The restaurant was very crowded and yet Mike spoke to everyone individually at the table. If I am ever in Forrest city I will visit again.

The quality of food is fresh, hot, and cooked to order. Service is friendly but slow. They have a lunch special every day. It's a local gathering place.

The Club Sandwich is my favorite!! I love the fresh salad greens they use for the salads. Steak, fish and shrimp always taste good!!! Never a bad experience !!

Overall I wasn't disappointed as the food I chose was good but I had walked in wanting a nice Sirloin steak. Alas... More

Read on trip advisor and reviews were great. So decided to stop in. The food was wonderful. The place could use a face lift on the inside. They need bigger plates. You couldn't cut the steak without food falling off the plate. And the wait was a little much. We got our steaks before our salads. And the price was... More

Good old Southern cooking! Great seafood, catfish, salads, steaks! Highly recommended! If you are staying in nearby Forrest City at night, Mike's is your very best option for dinner. The food is worth the seven mile drive!

We ate at Mike's a couple of years ago while stopping over night in Forrest City. When we stopped there again, we decided to return to Mike's and, once again, it was a good choice. We were lucky enough to be there on a night they were serving Catfish. It was DELICIOUS! Another member of our party had a steak... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor and took my folks there for their 50th Wedding Anniversary. We all had different dishes from a fried chicken salad to pulled pork plate.
