The little white building hides a secret. Delicious food at great prices! No fancy decor. Salad bar is pretty standard. But good home cooking and generous portions. Trust me when I say, to order the steak. The portion is generous, delicious taste and so tender you barely need a knife. I choose... read more

This little restaurant was on the road to our rented cabin. Every time we passed it, no matter what time of day, the parking lot was packed. We decided to go for lunch around noon and could not even find a parking space! So the next day I was determined to get in so we arrived earlier around 11:30 and... More

This place has any fare one could want. They specialize in home-cooked meals with a southern flare in a clean, casual setting. Love the salad bar as well.

We had lunch at Mike's. You can get a vegtable plate or a meat with 3 vegtables. The vegtables were typical that you would get at a country cooking place. I had fried chicken livers and they were good. The hash brown casserole was good. The other vegtables were ok. The waitress was attentive and friendly. To summarize, it wasn't... More

Mike's Ellijay Restaurant is a family style restaurant. It's ok not the best in town but reasonably priced?

We were looking for a place to have breakfast after leaving Gainesville. We had delicious eggs, large sausage patties, biscuits and gravy. Everything was cooked to perfection. We were so glad that we did not pass this up. The waitresses were very friendly and polite. We enjoyed the whole experience. We will go back the next time we are traveling... More

Our "regular" lunch spot was closed so we stopped in and enjoyed a good meal with good prices. The place was full and folks seemed very pleased with the choices. I had collards and cornbread and found it YUMMY.

Mikes is a small local restaurant that specializes in comfort food. Fried chicken with fresh steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes with gravy. Maybe a slice of cobbler for desert. Or try the salad bar. It is a good place to have an inexpensive, but hardy meal similar to what mom used to make. It isn't the place you take a... More
