Fun place

It's worth stopping here for the fun decor. Varied menu with lots of American favorites to choose from, and breakfast is served all day. Great value for the prices listed.

This is a unique, local establishment that is loved and frequented by many. A lot of college kids go there since it is not too far from the Kent State Campus. They have an abundance of items to order from on their menu. The atmosphere is laid back and nostalgic with all the stuff hanging on their walls. They have... More

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 places to sit. It's just a... 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
