Much better without Italian food!!

Had not been to MiMi's in years as we found interior unappealing and food heavy. However, food is no longer Italian and much lighter fare such as Mahi Mahi tacos in flour tortillas which were flaky and just barely blackened the way I like. Others had shrimp and grits and my husband said best he... read more

My wife and I had gone to Mimi's when it was Italian cuisine. Although the Italian was good, the new version with the new menu is also good, maybe better. We've gone a few times - for burgers, pizza and nachos. The staff are friendly and checked on us often enough. It seemed most of the folks were there for... More

Menu change! Poor service! Unreasonal high cost per meal for what is offered! Server not helpful with any questions pertaining to fare offered! Will not recommend them to anyone! This is no longer an Italian cafe, just an ordinary place that serves cheap food. They should be out of business soon, if they continue what they have been doing since... More

Mimi's Italian Kitchen has been changed to more of a casual Sport Bar with pub food. There are still some old stand by's - The Stuffed Shells which are are my favorite, Pizza, and Grouper. I particularly like the Stuffed Shells as the sauage and spinach stuffing is very tasty as well as the marinara sauce. My wife had a... More

We had heard that Mimi's Italian Cafe had shed the Italian motif and changed the menu. Always happy to give local ownership a try, we checked out the changes. In our trips to the Italian version, we were pleased with the fare, so we were interested in what changes had been put into effect. The new menu features a couple... More

A group of 10 of us decided at the last minute to go out to dinner. One restaurant could not seat us so we stopped at Mimi's. They were very hospitable and made room for us by putting tables together. The wait staff were prompt but there was a little confusion about the special of the day, we were told... More

Tried to eat here for the first time and was only offered bar seating (with the high chairs). Those are really uncomfortable to us, so we said no. There was no one sitting at the tables so there must have been some reserved event for the evening as the people had not arrived yet. We never realized that we had... More

We have dined at Mimi's numerous times and take our families when they are in town. The food, atmosphere, service and price make it a super star on our list.

Mimi's is in an area that isn't overly busy (at least not as busy as Wolfchase). The food was wonderful: some of the best Italian food in town. Our waiter did a great job keeping our drinks and bread basket filled. The prices were about what you would expect to pay at Olive Garden or Colettas. I will definitely be... More

I have not had a bad meal here yet. The flavor of are quite good, satisfying, and making your taste bud to ask for more. The ambiance is kind a rustic and new at the same time. The staff is very attentive and just a great place to hang out to watch sports or meet new people. Great local bistro.
