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).

We stopped at Mike's Place for lunch on the way home from New York. Mike's is a fun place in a college town, with an eclectic decor and many little themed rooms. I had a turkey Reuben sandwich that was very nicely prepared - three pieces of bread and the turkey was not lunch-meat sliced, but cut from a roasted... More

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!
