Out for a Sunday drive. I was looking for a Nice restaurant for lunch. I seen the reviews and they sounded good. I had a bowl of chicken soup with a Reuben. It tasted like home cook meal. There's a lot of sandwiches to choose from. I enjoyed the lunch and will Return if in the area.

We stopped in on our way down 95 and were greeted with a smile from Mike. Food was great and they were very hospitable.

If you're looking for real, home cooked food come to Mike's. Though known for their prime rib, all their meals are superb. Mike and Adam create delicious meals and you'll never leave hungry. If you can, sit at the bar, meet new friends and watch the chefs cook. Our favorite place to eat...

Visited Mike's Deli and Restaurant for a Friday night, and had to make a reservation for the bar area! But I understand why...the bar overlooks the kitchen, and you can see your meal being prepared in front of you. This little restaurant, right on Boston Post Road (US Rt.1), is a little gem. Since the meats come from the Deli... More

We should have left as soon as we came through the door! The woman behind the counter could not have been more rude. Sarcastic and just on the edge with her attitude. There are plenty of places in town that have great sandwiches so I will never subject myself or my husband to such obnoxious service again!

Returning to the Saybrook shoreline for a Saturday night dinner at Mike's Restaurant, we were pleased that Mike's was still open this time of year. We sat at the bar (chef's table) where you can really see what you want to eat- who needs a picture menu?? My favorite is the homemade mozzarella and red sauce appetizer. Come hungry! Portions...

I have had many sandwiches here over the years and never been disappointed! Just got the latest one this week, and as always, I was reminded why I keep going back. Their sandwiches are fabulous! They are a good size, a ridiculous amount of stuff in them, and reasonable priced, especially for what you get. They have daily specials every... More

Mike's is great to grab a quick sandwich from on the go. Their cold cuts are absolutely delicious as well as their soups. They have many so many different meats and cheeses to choose from that you could be there all day deciding. But no matter what you get, it's delicious! The people who work their are exceptionally pleasant and... More

We have been going to Mikes for years and he continues to serve top quality food, generous portions, at a very fair price. His soups in the deli are homemade fresh every day. Not too salty and all fresh veggies and whatever he chooses that day. I have ordered his fresh ribs and hanger steaks for cooking on the grill,... More
