Most comfortable and cozy place in the area to meet a friend. Great comfort food (large portions) at value prices. They don't mind if you share. Service is so friendly and fast, knowledgeable.

Mito Nice is our "go-to" restaurant right next door. Nothing fancy, but good food, great service, family friendly. My only complaint is that their evening hours can change randomly....I think after Christmas maybe they just shut down earlier, but my husband and daughter work late so it can be a rude surprise to find it closed when the previous week it was open at 8 p.m.

Tucked away behind the food court is LEYE's Mity Nice Grill - a sit down / menu restaurant with a bar. The food was fantastic! Very pleased to see the now-gone Frankie's Ristorante's Seafood Salad on the menu! We devoured the brussel sprout, bacon, tomato flatbread for an appetizer - crisp and fresh as well as very tasty. For entrees, the chicken-lime tacos - which came with street-taco size corn tortillas, a perfectly cook chicken breastg, guacamole, salsa, cotija cheese and a light flavorful spicy cole slaw - MMMmmm Good. The French Onion burger was delicious and very plentiful - took half of it home. Highly recommended this hidden gem!

This place is great. Tucked away behind the food stations of FoodLife in Water Tower, you might not know it even exists. The #1 is overall value. Everything on the menu is priced below a $25 price point and most in the teens. The quality of food was tremendous and the service was outstanding! They also had $5 glasses of wine on the evening we dined, which kept a check for 4 people (who ate and drank a lot) under $120. I would highly recommend especially if you need to stay within a budget but so not want to compromise quality and service. I will be back.

Lots of love for Mity Nice... my friends and I have eaten there many, many times over the years. The only disappointment... on rare occasion... is that not every chef has the knack for whipping up fabulous popovers. :(

Always love the home cooking here, especially the chicken pot pie. Fabulous! Salmon is very good too.
But the blueberry cobbler with ice cream out of this world. Sinful! And of course we always love to see Antoine.

The food at Mity Nice is very good, but my favorite thing is the amazing service. From the gentleman who seats you to the servers to the people pouring water to the guy at the bar who makes sure you're pleased with drinks and whatever is on TV, they make a real effort to make you happy!

We continue to visit Mity Nice for a good, reliable experience. Food is very good and service meets or exceeds expectations. Only issue this time is that we made a special request for one of the half booths when the reservation was placed and the request was not honored.

Everything was great......except when it came time for the scratch off for double or triple points, the L E T T U C E app did not not work and I was unable to get extra points. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn’t for that. There was another customer with the same problem and the manager didn’t know how to handle it. She submitted an email for me to LETTUCEEATS but as yet, I have not heard from them. I’m not happy.

We chose Mighty Nice for a re-union with friends because we knew we would get great food and service, and the ambience is conducive to conversation. So many restaurants are so noisy that you cannot hear yourself talk, but not Mighty Nice, even when it is busy. Our friends had never been there, and they loved it. The cheese popovers were a huge success, and all our dinners where delicious. Our server was fabulous. Unfortunately, I don't remember her name. In short, we had a great time at Might Nice and can't wait to return.

Great service, food was so plentiful as I took leftovers home, and they even treated us for dessert as we were seeing a show later that evening. Loved the phrases on the walls throughout as it lent to a playful, humorous atmosphere.

After 2 or 3 weeks of pure hell at work, late nights, etc.,I really needed a treat. Mity Nice was my treat. Wonderful meatloaf dinner, attentive waiters and water staff. Only issue, not their fault, had to sit next to table with 'Minnie Mouse' -- woman who was talking constantly in the high pitched kinda voice. Everyone cleared out by time I was done for dinner except Minnie and her table. Ugh. Anyway, other than that, great experience.
