I would the pricing was ok but the service wasn’t great. The night we were there the band was really good, we unfortunately were outside and it got chilly. Wish there was sides on the tent because it was chilly and breezy.

Smokers outside and thus smoke drifted into area near the bar.
Many guys standing outside area without masks and closely congregating

The place is newly reopened. Booking through opentable worked - no wait. Our wine pour had to be redone, a salad was missing it’s chicken, and we were missing silverware to start but all small things and easily correctable. Service was a bit slow but not bad. Food was great. Good atmosphere. Was a regular patron before lockdown and fully intend to return on a regular basis in the future.

Food was not as good as how much it cost. Drinks were not made right and very watered down. Ambiance was not what I would think a bar grill would look like.. weird with a pizza shop in middle by bar. Was not happy or impressed at all.

Our service was the disappearing waitress. It took her forever to get us something and bring it back to the table. Our food all came out warm not hot and we got the spinach dip and it tasted like they changed the cheese to a powdered cheddar cheese. Mikes used to be our favorite place.

Mike’s had a sorely needed renovation and it looks great, cleaner, brighter and the changes work well with the charm of the old building. Love the open ceiling in the bar area. Nice new and expanded outdoor seating set up. Service was slow, but our waitperson was pleasant and apologized several times. New menu items and some of the old stuff too. Tried the new brussel sprout appetizer, came out in a small black iron skillet but was cold, not room temp.but cold. Took forever to track down server to ask to have them heated. After being heated they were better, but not great. Had their onion soup which was very good, kale salad with grilled chicken (another new item) which was ok, and a side of their “seasoned” fries which are lacking in seasoning. Mikes still has good beer list but wi es were limited and “meh”. Feels like they are still working out the kinks I’d their renovations and menu challenges and serving the inside and outside patrons seamlessly. Will try then again in a few weeks.

We sat outside. It was a cool night be we were prepared. We were the only customers oustide. They wanted to sit us outside of their permant deck, under a temporar tent. I asked to be seated closer to the buidling and near to TV. Hostes felt she needed to explain why were being put way out in the tent. She complied with our request. However we sat for about 15 minutes and no one came to be our server. My husband had to go inside and find out why. Communication breakdown between hostess and server. The food was the same as usual. No specials. Often I like their specials. We will go back because it is a favorite but hope things come together a little quicker.

Our waitress was sat with literally 5 tables all at once. She was so overwhelmed which is understandable. No one was really helping her and our service really suffered for it.

It was very very loud. We sat in lower level and it was pretty cold too. They even had a space heater plugged in. At 630 they ran out of all house white wine? Blamed it on an earlier banquet? How can you run out of white wine on a Saturday night....

I ordered the fish tacos and got 2 small tacos. Not worth the $..

Food, beer & service were very good, but cold temperature detracted from entire meal. Understood it's a stone building, but get heat in back room or more space heaters. No intention of returning until spring.

Went for lunch on Sunday. Decor is a bit outdated but it's comfortable and relaxed. Food was good and there's a large menu. Good value. Good service. Decent beer selection.

Good place for a casual meal and a drink or two.

Restaurant had a nice ambiance with the stone walls and multi-room layout. We were there for lunch. Food was very good and a good price. I had the Take Two lunch with lobster bisque (good, but a bit spicier than I expected) and the french dip half sandwich (excellent!). I was lunching with three others and everyone was very pleased with their meals. The person that got the sweet and spicy chicken was extremely pleased and vowed to come back again for it. Service was good with the waitress very nice about our special requests, but food took a bit long to get to the table. The restaurant was not crowded, so it was a bit surprising how long it took. We weren't in an hurry (holiday lunch), so not a problem for us. Overall, we all would like to come back and try the dinner.

Great place for American-style food. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Food was good and nice portion sizes. The restaurant is a little cold (in temperature) since it’s in an old building. Great ambiance though!

I had the ribs, they were excellent. The service was outstanding. The only issue was that it was very cold inside the restaurant. Myself, and many of the other customers were eating with there coats on.

We were looking for a local place with good food, good service, and not too loud, and not too expensive. It had been quite a while since we’ve been at Mike’s so we made a reservation. We got exactly what we wanted. Good comfort food with friendly acceptable service. If you’re going on a Friday or Saturday evening, make a reservation or be prepared to wait.

Very shorthanded probably because it was Father’s Day.
Several times while ordering, we were told that they ran out of items on the menu.
Had to keep reminding the server to bring water, tableware.
We have been to Mike’s before so this was surprising.
Probably be a while before we go back.

Had the full rack of ribs. The sauce seemed milky and tasted like it had a lot of cinnamon in it.
