I ate there yesterday for the second time. The first time was a couple of months ago and I had a filet - great. It was cooked well and seasoned well. Last night I ordered the NY strip. Nothing about the meal was good. My salad looked like it was a couple days past edible. The roll was two days old. The steak did not appear to be a strip but more of a rib eye. It was fatty and of poor quality. I took most of it home to my dogs. Service wasn't great either. I asked for a refill on my ice tea, and she didn't bother to put more ice in it. It was a luke-warm tea. Not many people there. Prices are rather high especially for that quality. I won't be back.
Very limited menu. Service was slow and food was mediocre at best. Overpriced .
My date (spouses) enjoyed the half duck dinner and I went for the pork loin recommended my my date because he enjoyed it our last visit. We both loved our dinners and my husband enjoyed the half portion of the pork for lunch the next day. Really great house made food by Chef Mike and hosted by his wife, Kathy.
Been there so many times but had never tried the "whole chicken dinner for 2" menu option. We really loved it and it is a great value.
This reminded us of a regular Sunday night dinner my husbands mother fixed at least once a month...she split a chicken and broiled it in the stove with fresh lemon juice.
Chef Mikes grills it, splits it before serving it along with roasted potatoes, mixed vegetables, salad and house-made dinner rolls. Now that is a "Sunday" dinner but available any day of the week.
The server didn't come back to check on us. When he came back to pick up the check, he was on his cellphone. That was a first for me.
We always enjoy coming to Chef Mike's. The staff makes us feel like family and the food is perfect every time!
Chef Mikes is a local favorite and we dine there a couple times a month. Never had an unpleasant experience at Chef Mikes.
Three meals were very good good chicken 1/2, white fish special, chicken/ribs (note ribs Re not smoked if that's what you like) special although BBQ sauce very hot if that's your thing, strip steak a house specialty was not very special while large piece it was flavorless, and tough with a lot of gristle. Vegetables very good. Desserts small selection, coco loco pie is good and a reasonable sized price. Peach tart was ok but tart dough was hard and tough.
Service was very good especially considering a very argue group showed up without reservations wait staff was scrambling.
Almost 100% of times are made in house, including breads and most desserts.
A must try is the Buffalo Brussel Spouts appetizer....and don't forget to ask for Ranch or Blue. Yeah I know....weird, but delicious. Service is always friendly and accommodating. Bar/Beer list is better than average. Simple atmosphere where finely grilled food is generously served by a wait-staff who pays attention.
The food was great.
We had wonderful lamb burgers that were juicy and filling . Served with eggplant fries that were delicious ! We would definetly go back!
The charcoal grill makes ALL the difference!! Fabulous burger, cooked perfectly to my request, & the fries were even smoked and were mesmerizing. I can't say enough about my wonderful experience! Mike's is tucked away next to the Holiday Inn Express so GPS (Waze) didn't get me there, so I drove until I found it. I signed up for the rewards card & I will DEFINITELY return!
Food was good, but over-priced in my opinion, especially given the setting - older bar type place in small older strip mall (can't imagine overhead is that high). 7.50 for 7 asparagus spears? - they were very good, but really? On a better note, my daughter thought the fries were fantastic :)
This was our first time here and we would probably give it a 2nd chance but were not overwhelmed. We thought it was more of a BBQ restaurant but mostly steaks and chicken and sandwiches. My wife both described it as good not great. I had the brisket which was good and she had a filet but it had a strip of fat on it which made us question whether it was really a filet or not. The sides were serviceable but not outstanding. Again we would give it another try and order something different.
Just move to the northwest side. Looking for really good restaurants it's hard to find. This is a great steak restaurants with good atmosphere. I am so impressed with the service, reasonable prices, and great food!
Chef Mike's offers good grilled food. Not fancy. Just good service and food.
Food is so good and service was good, usually it is a very long wait but that was certainly not the case.
Seriously the best grilled chicken breast sandwich I have ever had. . Others is my party were wowed by the pecan-crusted catfish dinner.
Chef Mike's Grill seemed like a good choice. The prices were a bit steep. I think they should add more appealing appetizers and a few more dishes to their menu. The chicken Alfredo was delicious. My colleagues had a hard time ordering off the menu.
We had a late night steak dinner before closing. The owner was cordial and a great conversationalist. Tina's service couldn't have been better and the whole staff was nice and accommodating. The bar looks like a great place to watch sporting events.
