Love the big breakfast special, Monday thru Friday ~ stops sharply @ 10am. The menu is daunting, but with the special you get a little of everything! Great service, good food and a fun atmosphere! They even have a Key West style patio.

We came back to Akron, Ohio after 20 years, to find Mike's place just as wonderful as we remembered it. The menu is 4 huge pages and would take all day to read it all and decide. (best bet.. pre-read on the internet first!) My hubby had the steak sub, and I had wings and saurekraut balls, For dessert.. Lee's... More

My wife and I have been to Mike's several times and took a couple of friends. One had noted the menu was overwhelming. There are a lot of choices. I recommend looking over their menu through the restaurant website before going. The XWing in the front makes the trip worthwhile...

this falls somewhere between a hole in the wall and your local diner. whatever it is called this is a pretty decent spot. menu is huge - nothing fancy, just good and decent food with really large portions and really low prices. understand why it is popular.

Huge portions, great food . 300 items on the menu, blue cheese burger is fantastic . Lots of fun decor to look at, you can sit in a bus or a pirate ship.

Went early on a Sunday night for dinner. Seated right away. Drink orders taken right away with food orders right after drinks arrived. Food came very fast. Had the chicken tenders which were very good and cole slaw that was just okay. Very large menu, if you don't find something for you, you not looking hard enough.

We happened to be going through on our way back home to Strongsville and found Mike's Place! The decore of the restaurant is unique and the menu creative. Our order was taken on a timely basis, the server was upbeat, and the food was delicious. I wish we lived closer so I could try all the ever-changing specials.

This place is pretty awesome! It has tuns of memorabilia all over inside and lots of cool stuff outside. Like a life size f-wing fighter from Star Wars. The menu has so much to offer. It was hard to choose what to eat. All the items we tried were delicious. The only problem I had was the menu's writing was... More
