Take out a disappointment

Mimi's is our "go-to-place" for any meal any time. We like the chicken chopped salad and the burgers and their fabulous muffins. The chicken in wine sauce with steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes will warm you up and feed your soul Always great service

Mimi's used to be one of our favorite stand-by's for a good, reasonably-priced meal. Not so now. The ivory tower dwelling powers-that-be decided to

My husband and I have dined at this location once before, and did so today since we were at an event near the restaurant, and we had a pleasant memory of our previous visit here. Today's meal was indeed very good, although not quite the best we ever had. Everything was fresh, cooked as ordered, nicely seasoned and assembled. The... More

Mimi's is always my go to restaurant. They have a wonderful atmosphere, a very large em with very tasty food and great service. Plus as a bonus, they are offering great coupons if you join their club.

This is a nice place for a casual dinner. Nothing very fancy or elegant, but a nice, comfortable, friendly place for dinner. My wife and I often go there when we want good food and don't want to cook. There is a great variety of food, and it's all pretty good. We typically go during the week, and it's rarely... More

Good family style specialties. Large portions so splitting is not a problem, breads are excellent. Wait staff friendly. It does get a little on the noisy side turning peak times.

They have the best meatloaf ever!! They serve it with mashed potatoes and gravy, veggies, and fresh bread. They also have TV's with sports on just in case. They also serve beer and wine. So if you have to take the family out to dinner, you won't miss the game!!!

I have been to Mimi's a while back, and found their food to be very tasty. They offer a variety of French delicacies. The coffee they serve is well presented and their French onion soup is a must-try. I had the salmon main course and it was prepared to perfection.
