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

Great deal on dinner,and food was pretty good. Typical southern fair, but not overlooked nor dripping in fatback! Fried chicken was tasty and moist.

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

We received a recommendation for Mike's from a local resident. On Saturday night during the Apple Fest, the restaurant was crowded. Still we were seated promptly. Because of the crowd, the service was not unexpectedly a bit slow. All-in-all, the atmosphere was friendly, the food was good and the prices were reasonable. Bottom line is that we will return to...

Mike's is like that old radio show restaurant, Duffy's Tavern, where the elite meet to eat! It's breakfast and lunch, always full, staff remembers your name and even what you like. 'Gabi' is the main server, absolutely first class, and newbies who start their working careers there will be well trained. Food is generally the best Southern meal available, no... More

Don't go between 2pm-5pm - you can't order the lunch specials, only off the menu. And even then, many items weren't available including the peanut butter pie, which was still frozen.

Country food..excellent fried chicken...the sides were delicious and a price that cant be beat. One word of caution .the road in front of this place is a bit unsafe. We were involved in a serious accident attemping to turn into entrance. Be cautious.
