“A Tasty Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Out for a Sunday drive. I was looking for a
Nice restaurant for lunch. I seen the reviews and they sounded good.
I had a bowl of chicken soup with a Reuben. It tasted like home cook meal.
There's a lot of sandwiches to choose from. I enjoyed the lunch and will
Return if in the area.

We stopped in on our way down 95 and were greeted with a smile from Mike. Food was great and they were very hospitable.

“Best prime rib in the state”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

If you're looking for real, home cooked food come to Mike's. Though known for their prime rib, all their meals are superb. Mike and Adam create delicious meals and you'll never leave hungry. If you can, sit at the bar, meet new friends and watch the chefs cook. Our favorite place to eat...

“Best Restaurant on the CT Shore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Visited Mike's Deli and Restaurant for a Friday night, and had to make a reservation for the bar area! But I understand why...the bar overlooks the kitchen, and you can see your meal being prepared in front of you. This little restaurant, right on Boston Post Road (US Rt.1), is a little gem. Since the meats come from the Deli side, and Mike is a butcher by trade, you can be sure that the menu is fabulous when it comes to steaks and ribs. But, don't be fooled, because their seafood is fresh, pasta dishes are creative, and the appetizers are unique. Want to "tweak" the dish a little (add garlic, sub broccoli for potatoes, no problem, the chefs are there to please. You have to try this place.

“Frustrated waitress”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

We should have left as soon as we came through the door! The woman behind the counter could not have been more rude. Sarcastic and just on the edge with her attitude. There are plenty of places in town that have great sandwiches so I will never subject myself or my husband to such obnoxious service again!
