I'VE gotten to visit Mike's on many occasion with my brother and wife , the only little thing is the cash only which I have to go to an ATM machine before I eat .

Good little restaurant with full menu or daily "meat and 3". Chocolate cake good! Have been for breakfast and dinner. Wait staff very attentive.

Seven women, we kept changing our mind. Slaw or collards? Waitress was patient. I got chicken livers and shared them with others. We all liked them. Everyone was pleasantly surprised at how tasty their dinner was. It's a regular stop on our Tuesday night dinner cycle. We'll be back.

Mike's is a great place for home cooking, veggies or salad bar. They have specials each day and a menu to select from. Service is good, you are seated and waited on. Salad bar is not huge, but a good size. You won't leaved hungry!

This restaurant was the only local place open at 5-6 pm. This is like any local diner in Anytown, USA. The service was ok, the smashed potatoes were very good, the wings so-so, French fries were awful... as was the dried out, rock of a cornbread muffin. I wish the waitress had told me they had specials before I ordered... More

It's either here or a national chain. Nothing at all special about the place. Average building, average decor, average staff, average food. But we wanted to eat local, so here we are. It would be nice if the restaurants here were open past 3 and the shops open past 5. Nothing to write home about.

Have been going to Mike's for years. Great country style food at excellent prices. It has always been consistently good and the wait staff have always been friendly. There is rarely a wait and food always comes out promptly.

Their fried chicken breast place is to die for! Crunchy and juicy to the max. Their vegetable beef soup is out of this world, but only served in late fall and winter. Elderly go here and box up half of their meal to eat later since it is so inexpensive and generous on the serving size. Local vegetables and meat.... More

My family of 10 had an early Thanksgiving meal at Mikes. The chalk board, where they list the menu had a dozen or so veggies on it, and most received excellent feedback from diners. I had turkey and dressing, which was good. It is a bit surprising to eat a sit down meal with meat and three veggies, roll, and... More
