Restaurant closed abruptly. No notice given to employees or the public. Had a decent friday fish fry when they were open.

Had the ribs, beans, and Cajun fries. Overall pretty good. Was passing through on I94. A little off the beaten path but great staff and atmosphere made it a great place to take a break.

The portions were small. We asked for a substitution of a slice of Texas toast instead of bun so it was open faced. There wasn't a full ice cream scoop portion of the meat. The brisket was dry. The potato salad was too runny. The...More

We went to Mike's on Father's Day expecting some good ribs. They were not good. First of all they were out of baked potatoes. No apology - they were just out. It was only 6:00 pm. When the ribs came they were the toughest ones...More
