A wonderful Cajun themed restaurant tucked into an old bldg downtown. Great service and an extensive menu of well prepared dishes. Good value. Definitely worth the visit. Reservations are a good idea for weekends. It is a popular spot.

My family and I along with my brother and his wife, who is from Louisiana, spent New Years Eve at Mike's Place and we were not disappointed. I made reservations probably a week in advance to make sure we had a nice place to ring in the new year! The food was fantastic! The service was quick, and the atmosphere... More

When I have coworkers that visit from out of town this is the standard de facto go to place. All the food is amazing. If eating with a group larger than 2 then make reservations in advance. They are usually packed at night.

Found myself in the Conway area around lunch and decided to stop in and try this place out. I was very surprised at how big the restaurant was on the inside. The menu was vast and had a great assortment of options to eat. I went with the lunch Ruben and wasn't disappointed. I also tried the bread pudding as... More

Mike's Place was opened by a college contemporary in a location I frequented as a child when it was the prime shopping area of Conway. Consequently, I had wanted to eat there for a long time but the opportunity never developed. Finally last week I was able to schedule a business lunch and I was very impressed. The location had...

Great place for a business meal or special occasion. It has a nice New Orleans look and feel but the menu isn't what I consider typical Cajun. Of the 6 in our party 5 of us had seafood since they had a great selection of fish and shrimp dishes. The crab was very good and the calamari was the best... More

We love Mike's Place in Conway, AR. It is one of the places we save for special occasions because they have a menu that caters to things not ordinary. Nice atmosphere, excellent service, delicious food. The fish options are very much appreciated in a town that seems to offer primary catfish! Mike, the owner, is very personable, and wants your...

Perfect restaurant for special occasions, business lunches, and casual dining. Though the menu is not extensive, there are a few excellent choices in sveral food categories. The pecan-encrusted grouper is one of my favorites. Be sure to try to crab cakes. Expertly-prepared steaks. Excellent service. Fresh, high-quality food and ingredients. You will not be disappointed when choosing Mike's Place.

Mike's Place set the bar very, very high when it opened. As one of the first restaurants in this quaint little village given permission to serve drinks, it was going to be a success no matter what. However, Mike's Place has striven, from day one, to be the classiest place in town. And it has met that criteria - the... More

Mike's Place is one of the best restaurants in Conway. Not only is their service and food consistently good, they also have a wonderful atmosphere. I recommend this restaurant for business luncheons, couples night, and any other event that you may have as a special occasion or just a good every day restaurant. They also have private rooms for large... More
