    The Baja Tuna Tacos were fantastic! As were the Pot Roast Sliders. Thanks for a delicious pre theatre dinner.

    The service was very good. I came for the panko encrusted deep fried walleye. This was not a good way to cook this delicate fish. All I tasted was fried panko. I suggest the chef change to my mother's walleye recipe: Dry walleye fillets. Dip in beaten egg, then cover with crushed saltines. Let sit on counter for 20 minutes. Fry in corn oil till crisp on both sides, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

    Food was good but not anything worth returning for soon. Wait staff was fair but table service staff were very good. Noise level was really high. Overall an okay experience. Would not go for dinner but would go for lunch (which I had experienced before and for which the menu and what I had was good).

    Fantastic food and service! The manager Adam was excellent and went above and beyond in ensuring everything was perfect with our dining experience. We had a gluten free individual dining and Adam made sure to inform us of all possibilities when it came to everything being gluten free for this individual. He also corrected my duplicate reservation that I inadvertently made and was just very attentive but not over bearing. We noticed Hon checking in with other tackles as well which is what a good manager does! Our waitress was excellent as well. Overall a great dining experience!!

    Impressed with the large amount of food that came for restaurant week. This place is really tucked away in Water Tower. It was a really strong meal, I was pleasantly surprised! The brunch flatbread is plentiful and had a lot of good flavors. The corn cake benedicts had a nice medley of tomato and avocado. Servers were on top of things. Would come back !

    One of favorite casual restaurants. It has a varied menu - we love their veggie burgers but this time I had the cedar-planked salmon and my husband had the fish & chips. Both were excellent. Our waiter was terrific and right on top of our needs.

    We’ve always considered “Mity Nice” to be mighty nice! We FROZE in the restaurant. I guess the temperature was not fixable by the restaurant. However, the food was good and range of options was okay. The location of Mity Nice is convenient to area attractions.

    The food was decent, but nothing special. The avocado toast was disappointing -- the choice of bread in particular. The atmosphere would have been nicer if it weren't tucked away inside a cafeteria-like food court. To get to the restaurant you have to walk through another restaurant. They give you passes to get out because otherwise they would assume you ate at the food court. When we first sat down our waitress poured water on my husband's jacket. An accident, of course, but doesn't help. They also accidentally double charged our card. Again, a mistake, and one that was corrected, but still annoying. Finally, as I was leaving, the floor was so sticky that my shoe got stuck. While the food was OK, it was nothing to write home about, and given that the atmosphere was below par, I would be unlikely to return or recommend this place to a friend.

    Mite Nice is a great place for lunch....always consistent, with lots of satisfying menu choices. I would go there more often, for business lunch meetings except for one small, but very frustrating detail: no working WiFi.

    Excellent restaurant w/excellent food.Me & my family have been coming here for years!Food & prices are always on point & the service is usually top notch but this time the waitress we had was terrible.Upon her first visit to table she told us she would get us some bread & asked us for our drink selections & my wife proceeded to ask if we could put in our appetizer order as well since we knew what we wanted & our 1.5 year old son was hungry so we ordered an appetizer & she asked if we knew what we wanted for entrees as well & we did so she took the whole order at once which I didn’t really like.Immediately after this I watch her take a drink order from a table that was seated after us as well as bring that table bread when she never even brought ours.We have napkins & silverware on table but no plates for appetizers or bread. She brings me my lemonade.Still no bread.She doesn’t return to the table for a long time. Never brung out bread or plates. I had to ask hostess if we could get some bread.bread comes.appetizer comes from another person of the wait staff.Still no plates & she still hasn’t come back.I asked the bus boy who filled out waters in the beginning of us sitting down for plates.Five minutes after appetizer comes here comes out entrees & we haven’t even finished the one appetizer we got.She never checked on us.Never refilled our waters or asked if we needed anything.All the while I’m watching her wait hand & foot on other tables & also standing at the bar giving me the stank face like I’ve done something wrong.After we enjoyed our delicious food we asked to talk to the manager which was a top notch guy and I proceeded to tell him about our experience & that I don’t like to complain & I’m certainly not asking for a free meal but that I just wanted him to know I wasn’t tipping his waitress that I thought treated us rudely for no apparent reason.He ended up comping the meal & I appreciate that and we will definitely be back! Big Thank you to Adam!
