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

I was traveling for business as I do each week. Driving down the road I saw a full size X wing fighter parked in front of a building. My curiosity got the best of me so I went inside. Crazy decor. The menu was like 100 pages. But the food is tasty, the service is friendly and the prices are... More

Mike's Place is Kent... Sorry that is the truth. It is an incredible mashup of everything including some of the best food in the area. You have to want a lot of nasty bad for you food! YES WANT IT! NEED IT! The food flavors are as good today as they were when the place first opened. You will enjoy... More

We really enjoy going to Mike's Place when we're in Kent. The restaurant is quirky fun. The menu is massive, with humor mixed in. Make sure you read it. If you can't find something to eat, then you aren't hungry. We've been stopping in there since my college days (25 plus years).
