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! I had tried to make a reservation, or reserve one of the rooms, but unfortunately you cannot do that on the weekends. Even... More

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

So while in the Kent area I asked some associates where to eat. EVERYONE said to try "Mike's Place" and you can not afford not to go if in the area. 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

The food was good, served quickly. There are many interesting displays both inside and out that everyone seemed to want to photograph. That was a little odd, it's like no one was from the area. Tons of groups posed and snapped all around like you were in Hollywood. Would probably eat there again, but only in a boring corner. It... More
