Good, home cooking at a value!

Mike's Diner was a breath of fresh air in the midst of multiple fast food type restaurants. The food was homestyle, cooked fresh and very tasty! In addition, the staff was very friendly and quick to serve. We would definitely look this place up again when we are in Panama City Beach, FL.

we went with a group and were not thrilled with the food or the service. They were very slow taking our order, delivering our food and bringing our tickets. maybe that's their style but the food was not awesome enough for that kind of dilly dallying.

The pancakes are light and fluffy. The best part of the lunch is the great selection of vegetables. Everything tastes home cooked, and there are different vegetables every day.

Mike's has something for everyone. Lunch is meat and three which is a good break from constant seafood. Next door is the oyster bar where you will love the seafood they serve. I make a stop here every beach trip!

If you see a line outside a restaurant, you wonder....is it really that good? YES! We ate at Mikes 3 times this year and twice in 2013. Our group is large and we ordered a variety of foods from seafood, gumbo, burgers and raw oysters. All of it was prepared as described, plentiful, and delicious. I hate to post a... More

This place was so great that we ate there twice for lunch and once for breakfast and took an order to go for dinner one night. This is a great local place with good home cooking. They only serve breakfast and lunch. After that, they open the Oyster Bar next door for dinner. Be sure to get there early to... More

We recently ate at Mike's on a Sunday for lunch while on a trip to PCB. The food was good and filling, and the portions were fairly generous. We were seated immediately upon our arrival, but the place was at capacity for almost the whole time we were there. Our waitress was not as prompt as some of the others... More

This is where the locals eat. Great food, reasonable prices. They serve breakfast which is a favorite. We ate there twice and weren't disappointed. Mike the owner is always on the job too!
