Excellent food and ambiance

This a cozy place to take your date or your family. They have a large menu, big enough to satisfy any picky eater. The portions are large and the food is tasty.

When I want something tasty I often pick this restaurant. Their menu includes a lot of comfort food and it is always well-prepared and fresh. I particularly like their version of French pot roast. It is delicious. They also do a nice turkey platter with thick slices of baked turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce. I also like the... More

This Mimi's is right down the street from my house. The last three years the food has been terrible. I think there is a new manager and the food has greatly improved. Still love the bread basket and the BEST French onion soup made in America!

This is one of my fathers favorite restaurants. We gathered there for his 92nd birthday. The food was incredibly bland and lack luster, and the service was even worse. It took forever for the server to even take our order, and then he got it all wrong. We timed it...It took 30 minutes to get our food out. And even... More

We enjoyed our lunch. Handicap accessible. Host was friendly. Waitress was kind. My daughter is allergic to turkey. When we ordered the REUBAN sandwich, we did not see the turkey as the meat. When we got the order the waitress told us to enjoy our turkey sandwich. We apologize for the mistake on our part for not reading the menu... More

Food. Plain. Simple. Delicious. Reliable. Clean. Cheap. Perfectly fine. The service was very good. Young and old people both. Special parking places for a pre-ordered food pick-up, almost a drive-through, except the wide selection of soups, chili and other dishes is quite nice for the convenience of lunchtime get-back-to-the-office. I was expecting less and really was surprised. Not a pizzaz... More

Too many mistakes, ran out of food,and not the quality or value of years past. Mimi's was the "go to" place for our family. Now not so much. My kids grew up going to Mimi's and it is sad to see the new owners not "get" the Mimi's magic.

I have tried dining in and take out at this Mimi's and I much prefer take out. The food is delicious so that keeps me coming back, but the service is VERY slow for dining in, so I usually get the food to go. Their corn chowder is SO good, and their nut bread is special. I had a sauced... More

I see more seniors here than young people. The menu has some good and and bad items. I like the corn chowder and broccoli cheese soup. I like the variety of breads they serve before you order. Their grand blue burger is good, but I'm not crazy about their pastas. Service depends on who is waiting on you. We've had... More
