If you're in Kent, you HAVE to come here.

Mike's Place is basically iconic. You have to come here if you're visiting Kent. Their menu is HUGE, like it could probably be used as a sled. Everything is delicious, it's cheap, and the portions are really big. It's the hangover Mecca for KSU students, and it has never failed me. Tons of cool... read more

We happened to stop by and try Mike's Place on a Friday night. Whenever I go out to eat on a Friday, I like to try the fish. They had an all-you-can-eat fish special and so I ordered the breaded fish. The sides were good and so was the salad; however, the fish was very difficult to eat. It came... More

My coffee had a gnat in it. Friends coffee cup had lipstick on it. Requested eggs over easy got hard yolks, and the roast was burnt. Over all very disappointed today. Last visit was much better...

We went here after my daughter's ice skating competition. The service was awesome and there is so much to Look at. But the food was not good. And prices were high.

The kids love this place! There are cool places to sit, like an old boat or an old bus. Our grandkids love to sit in the boat and pretend to talk on the ship to shore radio. The menu is huge, and the portions are too, so you can split, and still have enough food. This is not fine dining,... More

Menu too big. Food not awful. Service ok. Has big portions at low prices. Unique decor. That said lots of people love the place and it is always packed.

I absolutely love that they serve breakfast all day, pancakes were awesome. Definitely skip the french toast, it's super bland. It took us a really long time to get our food, the waitress said the kitchen was busy. Atmosphere was really cool, lots of great seating choices. The waitress dropped our check and then didn't come back. After 10 minutes... More

it takes forever to make your decision because the menu is so extensive- this is my kind of place,a little dive bar/restaurant- the area of seating that has the bus is really cool- when my kids were little they liked to sit in it- a Kent tradition

It was a toss up where to head off for dinner, and we ended up at Mikes Place. Finding the bar was a challenge, had to ask someone and they directed us past the indoor ship to the left. This opened up to a dinning area and a large bar. We were greeted very quickly by Taylor and then handed... More
