Dive worth the drive!

What a fun place--from the Star Wars ship outside to the life sized Elvis inside, Mike's Place is a hoot! The unending visual stimulation is second only to the extensive menu and huge portions. Prepare to study the menu for a while (doing so over a fabulous Bloody Mary is a beautiful thing) and... read more

What a cool place! Menu is out of this world. Service is friendly and quick. Hubby used to come here in his single days. He wanted to bring kids and I here. So glad he did. Breakfast good all around! We will be back

Not only was the food really good, the portions were huge! Even the kids sandwiches were enough for an adult. The place inside is so unique! We sat in a old gutted-out bus! There was also an old tug-boat in another section. Definitely an experience to remember!

Just had the wedding party day after breakfast at Mikes. Be hungry. The plates are huge and what a menu. So many items to choose from. And if our group is any indication everything was excellent

We visit Kent often and passed by Mike's place several times before stopping. That was a mistake! The parking lot is always full, morning, noon, and night, and there's good reason for that. This is a giant dose of Americana and good humor, the decor and the menu! Lot's to choose from, something for everyone, and the service and food... More

Portions are huge! No way you can leave hungry. Fish dinners were very good, two large pieces cooked well. Had 5 diners in our party and all were pleased with their selections. Menu almost too large - so many selection it was hard to decide. Decor is very unique, we ate inside an old bus! Nice drink menu also. Recommend... More

This is a cool little spot that's very unique and interesting for the kids. Food was good but not over the top and prices were in line with the area. Just something different than your typical chain.

This place is very entertaining as soon as you walk in! Different room setups like a boat, bus, cabin etc., and a Star Wars type fighter in the front. Menu is huge very much like the Cheesecake Factory, takes about 15 minutes to look through! Food is good and a lot of it, potions are quite large.

There is something for everyone in this menu .. Probably the largest menu I have ever seen! I had bacon blue cheese burger and my friends had a hoagie and the omelette with sauerkraut and corn beef... Even saw an attempt at there "food challenge" gigantic burger looked like abt 7 patties !!!

WE drove 45 minutes to come here and we were not disappointed. We had breakfast and it was fantastic. The cinnamon roll however isnt a real cinnamon roll, its more like a flattened cinnamon bread that is toasted but everything else will surpass your expectation. The menu is huge , I cant imagine a cook being able to handle cooking... More
