As advertised. Great food and big portions! The corned beef hash is the best I've ever had. I have never been let down by a DDD Fieri restaurant!

Went here after a night out, it was exactly what was needed. Typical diner vibe, service was decent, coffee kept flowing. Portions were big and food tasted real good. Would go here again 100%!!

My wife and I and our friend visited here having seen it feature on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives a few years ago. We went for lunch (the Pilgrim sandwich was superb) and it was so good, we returned for breakfast which was equally good....More

Mike's dinner is pretty good for what it is -- it's a quick get in and get out diner feel with no fuss. the service has always been great (not fancy whatsoever) and everyone's been nice and very friendly. The line can be long so...More

Mike's is a great place to get good diner food quickly at a reasonable price. It's always busy and is the kind of place that cops eat so you know it's good.

First, the place is packed. Duh, the world is fantastic. Great fluffy waffles, crisp bacon and omelets to make you burst. The turn over goes rather fast. Noise level can be a little high, but who cares when you'll end up stuffing your mouth.

Excellent food and reasonably priced. Sat at the counter which worked out well as the line was long. We were there at 8:45. Great pancakes, poached eggs, French toast and omelettes.

We stayed a couple days in the neighborhood and read a note that the previous guests had enjoyed a breakfast out so decided to give the diner a try. Am glad we did. Great food, large portions, good service! Highly recommend.

Food was okay but they need to wake up and take credit cards. As a tourist we pack minimal cash and use credit cards for all purchases. Nothing special about this place.

There seems to be a lot of on-street parking in the neighborhood. We did not have a problem on a Saturday.
