My son recently started school at Kent State, so we have been trying the local spots nearby. This is definitely my favorite. We went around 7pm, on Saturday of Welcome weekend, AND had a group of 9!

We had a party of 10 people and they took us to the bus which is inside the building. It was nice to have "the bus" to ourselves. Our server Hope was wonderful!! She never... More

Went to Mike's this morning to get breakfast with my wife. Very few cars in the lot which is not common. Went in and the waitress took us to a table next to a party of six partiers. They were ordering beer and drinks at 7:30 in the morning and obviously had been for a while. We ordered our breakfast... More

The place has a very eclectic feel with lots of unique items, even a bus inside the building, an X wing fighter out front sitting just across from a... More
