Feature was corn beef and cabbage. OK ''tis the season". Waitress advises, "it's been one of of our best sellers". I bite. OMG bad. I can give the cooking lesson in about 15 minutes on how to cook it as well as how to plate it. If this is a featured item, I'm not sure anything else is safe. Then... More

We've been going to Chef Mike's since they opened and have always had a great experience.The burgers are awsome (we usually get the Burger from Hell and Chili Burgers). If getting a sancdwich, you MUST get the fries! Wait staff are always friendly and attentive.

We ate here because we stayed at a nearby hotel and it was walking distance. The food was great. The service was not fast but the staff was friendly and we had no issues. I was surprised at the food. The taste was like back yard grill. It was good. I will eat there again. Met some people eating at... More

We found Chef Mike's last year and had such a tasty meal and good service that we had to come back again this year! And we ate there twice this trip. The burgers are to die for. Probably the best I have ever had. Steaks excellent as well. Good starters and the salads are always fresh with good greens. Only... More

Chef Mike's has melt in your mouth steaks that I personally think are better than Ruth Chris. I've never gotten a poor choice here and their house dressing, poppy seed, is the best around.

If you like a great burger Chef Mike's Charcoal Grill is the place to go. The burgers are literally cooked on a grill, and taste like it. Awesome fries round out a great plate. This is a good place to go to have a drink by yourself, with a friend, or to take the family for a nice quiet dinner.... More

Had a burger at lunch. Nothing memorable about it. It was fine. Had a good Charcoal taste on the outside, but not enough flavor in the meat. Fries are a little different. They had a coating on them. Not my style.

Met our dear friends for dinner on 1/7/17. Had a delicious burger and fries. Hubby had the turkey steak and shared that it was delicious. We had a delightful time and a delicious dinner.

We went to Chef Mike's Charcoal Grill when the temperature outside was 6 degrees, but the warmth of the waitstaff and the flavors of Mike's charcoal grill quickly transported us to a warm summer evening. Great service and great food!!

We met some friends at Chef Mike's. Our service was prompt. We all had a variety of foods, from pizza to the pork chop dinner. The food was good and the prices very reasonable. We plan to go back again soon.
