My family has been eating at Mike's for years. My parents live near, so they travel there at least once a week. Our favorites are the steaks and fried catfish. They wonderful sandwiches, too. They serve fresh ingredients in the salads, wonderful baked potatoes, and fantastic desserts! The staff is always friendly and helpful. If you are ever close to... More

On a trip from Virginia to Texas, we stopped at Forest City Arkansas to spend the night. Mike's was recommended to us by the hotel. It is seven miles north of I 40. We both had steaks and baked potatoes. Both steaks were cooked just like they were ordered. Wait staff were nice, friendly,and right at the table when tea... More

Traveling on I40 we were looking for a place for lunch. From the Trip Advisor reviews we decided the 7-mile drive was worth it. It was. We had a rueben and a Philly steak sandwich with chips and fries and topped it off with chocolate cobbler and lemon pie. It's a very friendly place with good food and a nice... More

We are staying at the Holiday Inn in Forrest City, Arkansas. The desk clerk showed us a list of nearby restaurants. Luckily, we made a wonderful choice! The restaurant was packed for a Monday evening. The owner, Mike, walked around and greeted each table. We even applauded the owner's Dad who was celebrating his 100th birthday. The food was delicious!!... More

Mike's is one of my favorite restaurants. My wife and I do a lot of traveling and when we're in Arkansas, we will go out of our way to dine at Mike's. Great food, great staff, friendly atmosphere! I recently had their New York Steak dinner for $18 and it was as good as any $50 steak I've eaten. My... More

It never ceases to amaze my wife and me as we travel around the country since retiring, that great food can be found anyplace, even where we might least expect it. Such was the case at Mike's, which was recommended by the motel we were staying at in Forest City. The motel manager assured us that it was the best... More

The service was prompt and friendly and the food was delicious. Our party of 5 ordered steak, catfish and the Club Salad. Everyone enjoyed their food. I had the Catfish and it... More

We spent the night at the Hampton Inn in Forest City and thought that Mike's might be a safe bet since some of the Forest City restaurants were closed due to the holidays. It was an easy 10 minute drive from the hotel. The restaurant was crowded and obviously popular with locals. Our food was good. The service was a... More
