Mac and cheese

Wife and I stopped for afternoon snack. We shared a Mac and cheese with bacon and some other extras. Not cheap but very good.

Long wait for seating, hour's wait for food, but the cocktails, burgers and perfect mac and cheese were worth the wait. Don't bother bringing kids (no kids menu and the standing room only wait will devastate them). It's a bar, so....

This is a smaller bar that serves amazing food. The Mac and cheese has a ton of add ins that make it extra delicious. The burgers are so so tasty too. My fave is the beer cheese soup. I'm super picky about my beer cheese soup and this soup is awesome. Extra cheesy. Bacon. Pretzel bread. They know how to... More

Stoped in the night before Thanksgiving. We ate at the bar and had great service and a super bartender, although the "boss" lady seemed a bit cranky. Maybe she needs to remember that customers hear bosses complaints and it seemed a bit uncomfortable for me hear the bosses tone! the food was excellent, although the method to order (by checking...

I recently moved to Kenosha and my love of trailer park boys pushed me in this direction. They have an awesome beer selection and some amazing cheeseburgers to compliment. Everything I or my guests have had has been fantastic (albeit unhealthy) and I don't believe their prices are too crazy for what you get. They even have cheapo beers like... More

This was my first visit to Captain Mikes, and the food was ok. We went at 5:00 on a Saturday, and were seated right away. While they have been rated as the best burger in town, there are establishments that I feel are better. On the flip side, there are plenty of menu options to choose from for appetizers, and... More

I have been to Captain Mike's three times, and each time it was very busy with waitstaff hustling to keep up. Yes, there has been a wait for food, but my wife and I are fine with that to get one of the best burgers you can buy in the area. Always check out the burger of the week, or... More

We have eaten here several times. The food is delicious, especially the burgers! I love the way you have a check-off sheet where you can mark everything you want in and on your burger. I am not a beer drinker, but they have a lot of flavors. Good place to watch a game on TV, although it can get very... More

The burger bar and Mac and cheese are great. So are their wings and apps. Service can be slow so be p repaired to. Kick back and enjoy the open atmosphere. During summer months windows are all open and there is seating outside.
