Restaurant has one very poor waitress who only gives service to those she likes and the owner things she`s the best ever.

Mike's Ellijay Restaurant has been an institution for years. Plenty of good country cooking and for a very fair price. Really enjoy the breakfasts.

Some people are drawn to the Ruth's Chris Steakhouses or the Bonefish Grills, others to the Outbacks and Red Lobsters. Still others, like me, are looking for those local, usually blue-collar restaurants that serve regional cooking with a reasonable price and a smile. Mike's Ellijay Restaurant fits that bill on all accounts. I'm told that Mike's Ellijay has a menu... More

Very reasonable prices. Had difficulty finding something that was not fried. Food was good but nothing extraordinary. Lots of locals:)

This place is always busy. The food is okay, but nothing special. Their prices and portions are good and the salad bar is one of the better ones for Ellijay. My wife ordered their grilled salmon about 3 years ago and that’s all she orders now. It’s seared lightly on both sides of the large filet, sealing in its tasty... More

Good meat and three. country style cooking, casual atmosphere. You seat yourself, folks. This is not a "fine dining" type of restaurant. The food is very good if you want more of a home style meal. The parking lot here is usually pretty full. This is where many locals eat. Check it out! We have had breakfast and lunch here... More

I've been wanting to go to Mike's for sometime now because a friend had recommended them, so today the wife and I went decided to go and drive up from Jasper. We arrived there at 1:50 and walked in. We weren't sure to sit or to be seated. After a while, I made eye contact and gave a nod at... More

.There is no hostess here, because it's very casual, so you seat yourself. On a chalk board is written the specials for the day: 2 or 3 meats/2 or 3 veges/ and 2 or 3 desserts. The specials are always moderately priced or, if you prefer, you may order off the menu. There is a small salad bar, if you... More

This may be the only restaurant in Ellijay that they actually make their medium rare burgers medium rare. They top the burger with freshly cut fried onions. Small salad bar is very good also. Fried liver chunks are also great for dinner, at 3PM.

We stopped here because of the many vehicles. Surprised to see a full menu with many choices at a very reasonable price. Nothing fancy, but good food and real mashed potatoes. No complaints, and our waitress was very attentive.
