Great Burgers!

The food was great - grass feed beef, it was just too loud for older folks, not their fault. Great selection of beer.

We were amazed by the great burgers served at this small bar. Orders are place by filling in menu sheets left on tables. We had two excellent appetizers that were delivered quickly. Great burgers, probably the best we have had, served on wonderful buns. The tables are placed close together which makes for a crowded fit and music is very... More

Captain Mike's has an interesting and varied menu of mostly burgers with different toppings. The food is very tasty although mine was served cold and when I mentioned it there was no follow up from the staff. The others in my group had good, hot food. The beer list is extensive although they had a listing posted on a chalk... More

My co-workers and I went here for lunch and was able to sit outside. The waitress was nice. I ordered one of the burgers with BBQ sauce, bacon, and cheese. Could not taste the bbq sauce and the burger tasted kind of dry. The thin fries were very salty. However, the root beer was very good.

Great location by the lake and Carthage College. Large variety of made to order burgers that are outstanding. Huge selection of beverages. Never thought I would say this but the mac n cheese is a gourmet meal for 2. Servers very friendly and funny.

Captain Mike's had a good variety of beers and a nice selection of food. They close at 2am, so good place for a late bite.

We stopped at Mikes after the Wisconsin Marathon. An hour wait for burgers- really? 3 out of 4 were over cooked . The fries were at least 3x cooked and inedible. The server never delivered fresh fries. What can you say- terrible food and I could not give a S#** service.

The ordering is very interesting. You get a paper with everything on it and you check off what you want. You can choose each item to put on your sandwich or side. The Mac and Cheese with whatever you want in it is to die for and can't really be eaten by yourself. The place is right downtown Kenosha and... More

This is a fun place. The regulars like to talk to the out of towners and it is always a nice mix of people, young and old. The cocktails are always good, they have a great beer selection and the food is fabulous. The burgers are huge and the Mac N Cheese is out of this world!
