You would never imagine such a great restaurant exists behind a shopping center storefront.My wife and I frequent Chex Mike's and never had a bad experience. They have excellent lunches also (til 3pm).

We ate twice at chez Mike and all our dinners were excellent.We had Calves liver (excellent), short ribs, steak and halibut. The steak was the low mark,better options are on the menu.the calamari were terrific,salads were great with the exception of an average Caesar. Some unusual options were available like smoked lamb belly! Parking easy and free. Service good.

The seasonally-changing menu at Chez Mike means that you will always have new and interesting dining options. Service is great.

In a grocery store strip mall, on a stretch of road with a variety of fast food restaurants, oil change garages and gas stations... hidden in plain sight... one of the best restaurants in the area! We had fish and chips and the mac and cheese, both were great. The cocktail sauce accompanying the fish was the best I've ever... More

Mike is a CIA-trained chef with a diverse menu that changes often. One of the few restaurants locally that offers calves liver, which is one of my favorites to order out.The vegetables that come with entrees are done perfectly- not limp and overcooked like most places, which is one sign of a great restaurant. Consistent quality, reasonable prices and very... More

We (husband and wife) had dinner at Chez Mike last week. Our dinners were excellent and we also received great service from our waiter, Cameron. We have not visited there often but would definitely return! We have one suggestion and I did e-mail the owner/chef, Mike about this. This may sound old-fashioned but we felt that at a nicer restaurant... More

My wife and I have been to Chez Mike many times. Mike is constantly changing the menu with creative choices. The brick oven chicken is a standing favorite of my wife and daughter. My daughter and her companion are there so much they may qualify as residents. The burgers are always a good choice. Everything from the olive butter (fantastic)... More
