    Received an e-mail For a special lobster dinner, and made a special trip to the restaurant for it. After being seated we were told by the waiter that they didn't get any lobster delivery. Would have been nice if they followed up with an updated e-mail to let people know about the problem before coming to the establishment.

    I used to love this place and have lots of fond memories. Maybe it was an off night, but they seem to be slipping. Everything was just lackluster, starting with the cold, tasteless bread basket. Our server was nice, but very harried. Nothing about the experience was horrible, but with so many great dining options in the area, why spend time and money on mediocrity?

    The food was OK, but the breads were terrible--totally tasteless. Accepted, some diners push away the breads; but those who enjoy partaking of some before food is served would be insulted by such poor fare. Mim's does not serve complimentary tastings, so the least they can do is serve an appetizing bread basket.

    Service or kitchen prep so slow. When dinner finally arrived two of the six fishes ordered had to go back. Pasta on meatballs way over cooked. Plain steak on salad had pepper which was specifically not asked for. It took three hours for dinner. Unacceptable😣

    One of our favorite reliable restaurants. The portions are plentiful. The $4 side salad makes a mockery of those $10-$12 salads elsewhere. The Granny Smith Chicken cannot be found elsewhere. It is prepared perfectly and is a family favorite.

    Quiet, comfortable, great choice for a fine dining experience at a reasonable price. They offer 3 delicious courses for 24.95! The selection was perfect. We were looking for a place that was quiet, romantic, and reasonably priced. Mims was exactly what we were looking for. We will definitely go again!

    I do not commonly find excellent service but I would feel it be a disservice to the staff at Mims not to comment on the excellent service our party received at dinner. Service can make a medocre meal excellent or a delicious meal unsatisfactory, and Mims delivered on both quality of food and excellent service.

    The prices are moderate, to high for the "fare." It is low end American traditional. The menu is not creative, and the food is less than creative. For $70 for two, the meal was less than what we bargained for, and I think they need a new chef, a new manager, and a new "style."

    We've been driving past Mim's for at least 20 years and had never eaten there. I'm sorry to say we finally gave it a try. Starting with dirty wine glasses that were dripping with dishwater, messy table settings, and barely mediocre food we were astonished at how crowded the place was. Always a jammed parking lot all those years we drove past. The in-your-face server even talked us into having the brownie sundae dessert which was equally terrible. And expensive!!! We spent about $250 for 4 people. That's big bucks for a very disappointing meal. Never again.

    We were in town for the Belmont Stakes and were told by other members of our party to find a restaurant and they'd meet us there. We have a gluten intolerant person and a very picky eater as well as some foodies. We found Mim's via OpenTable and it said there was an extensive gluten free menu. They also had a lot of staples (chicken parm, steaks, burgers, etc.) for our picky eater to choose from. Everyone was very happy with their meal. Plus they have table top s'mores for dessert! They were able to accommodate our party when we turned out to be 2 more than I had originally anticipated however the tables were a little close together, making me feel a little cramped. All in all a great meal was had by all.

    Had dinner on a Wednesday night, the server told me about the specials, and Wine down Wednesday. I decided to get a bottle wine and the prix-fixe menu. For starters I had the Portobello Mushroom which was amazing, for my main course, I had Osso Bucco which was so good, just fell right off the bone, I did not even need a knife. Dessert was the Mims homemade apple crisp. Overall a fantastic meal, great value, excellent service. Highly Recommend. Keep up the good work MIMS

    When I asked the waiter why he didn't give prices he replied that it was"rude". Upon further questioning he admitted it was just business and he only worked there. I think people are too intimidated to ask most of the time and would welcome the information Let's face it, the whole special reciting ritual is to intice you into buying something blindly without knowing the inflated price. A restaurant is the only place where a "special" is the most expensive item.
