I've been here something like 5 times now, and I still haven't had time to read through the entire menu. They have everything you could possibly think of -- unless you're thinking of something healthy. My favorites so far have been fried fish and various omelet/scramble-type dishes. The place is like a maze. When you get seated, you could end... More

Well priced, TONS to pick from, and just a fun place to go! Even right after church time, we got seated within 10 minutes. I had a BLT with Egg and it was decent-- not amazing, but only $6 and filled me up. Side Salad was DELICIOUS. Onion rings were OH so good!

1st off the menu is entirely too big. I think if the made the menu smaller they could concentrate on making the food better. It's fried bar food at best. Pricing is fair. It just didn't seem like a clean place to me. It is always crowded so they are doing something correctly. Not sure what.

My brother who is a student at Kent suggested we dine at Mikes Place, because we wanted something different outside the normal chain style restaurants. The inside decor is very intriguing and interesting... they have a boat you can dine in, and a bus outside the bar. When you sit down, you receive a 4-fold menu that is covered front... More

every time we go there I struggle to make my decision since they offer about 100 different sandwich choices- lots of times we get different sandwiches and then share them- good breakfast also- huge portions at decent prices

I drove about 30 minutes to get here from Macedonia based on the reviews here. I sat at the bar and ordered a beer, Bacon Cheeseburger, and Onion Rings. The burger was cooked properly and while the onion rings were hot, the breading was not very good. I think that as a local place, it is fine but not worth... More

The food can be good but often it is not. Place needs a good dusting. I know they are going for eclectic but needs a less clutter, if they are not going to keep it Clean.

My son recently started school at Kent State, so we have been trying the local spots nearby. This is definitely my favorite. We went around 7pm, on Saturday of Welcome weekend, AND had a group of 9! I had tried to make a reservation, or reserve one of the rooms, but unfortunately you cannot do that on the weekends. Even... More
