Fun Place

This is a unique place to visit. It has an X-wing in the front, Seats are in buses, boats, and other unique places. The menu is so fun to read, that we actually, kept one at our table to read while we were eating. We went for breakfast. I had the corn beef hash, enough for two. My husband... read more

My ole man wanted me to go here so many times...so glad I finally gave in. Not only did I need time to look at the menu, but there's so much else to take in-the decor! Great for kids. Great food and service. It's a def. that we will be back...enjoyed our meal outside.

Mike's Place is the place we take anyone visiting from out of town to get a slice of what Kent is. The decor alone is not to be missed. Especially notable is the Key West Area, the boat, the bus, and the X wing fighter out front. The menu is huge and eclectic. When ordering just remember where you are.... More

After navigating the huge menu of delicious concoctions, I decided on the "old okie". When it arrived to the table it was the biggest sandwich I've ever seen. Piled high with corned beef, fries, bacon, coleslaw and 1000 island dressing this monster sandwich was one of the best sandwiches I've had in a while. Family of four ate for a... More

Very interesting décor. You can eat in a bus in the building. They can do large tables. We had 8 and it was great. A#1 service and food. Don't get the stuffed bread sticks, but everything else was great

Excellent service from Candi. She always has a smile on her face and helps to guide you through the enormous menu. There is such a variety on the menu. I have not had a bad meal there yet. Great service and great food. Kent is lucky to have such a diverse restaurant.

We like to eat at this restaurant a few times a year. With a HUGE menu, there is always something new to try. The decor is amazing - anything and everything you can imagine seems to be hanging on the walls. At our most recent visit, we had the nachos for an appetizer. They were fine. The toppings overran the... More
