We ordered to go and it was very good. The hostess made sure to get my salad dressing but forgot to put the salad in the bag. We had to go back to get it. LOL still a great place to eat though.

Some one recommended eating at Mike's Place for a good steak. We decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. My daughter ordered a rib-eye. Her steak came overcooked instead of medium rare. She did not have to ask to send it back. I guess the waiter saw... More

Since I'm not very familiar with Conway, I had no preconcieved notion regarding the dining in the area. Wow! Downtown Conway had lots of restaurants to choose from...and I just happened to choose Mike's place. I'm not sure what the building once housed, but they've done a great job at creating a very eclectic, fun environment. the menu was robust... More

We ate here while staying overnight in Conway based on the reviews from Trip Advisor, and once again, your readers nailed it! Food, service, atmosphere, everything, was just fantastic! It has a Cajun feel and food has a little Creole touch to it and it was just delicious. They have a small wine list, but choices were very good and... More

Stayed in Conway for daughter's basketball game at Hendrix. Meet other parents for meal in town. Had heard great things. Ordered fried shrimp and crab cake , baked potato, broccoli. Food was okay. Nothing great but atmosphere and group made up for it. If we had been dining alone- not sure. Great place to sit together in group and visit.... More

We like to visit local restaurants rather than chains. This local popular restaurant caters to large parties and celebrations. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The owner visits tables, especially if you are a first time visitor.Meeting Mike is worth the visit. Go early to avoid the crowds. The food is all over the place. Some is outstanding like... More

This is our 3rd time eating here and it is usually good. This time I had the prime rib sandwich and the bread was soggy and the prime rib was tasteless. I don't know what could have happened unless they have a new cook.

We have been going to Mike's in Conway, Arkansas for many years and really like it. We are from Colorado and whenever we are in the vicinity this is the first restaurant that we think of. Years ago you had to join their club in order to have a drink or wine but the area has finally caught up with... More

Delicious New Years dinner in a beautifully restored and renovated old building in charming downtown. Attentive server, Ryan, gave us tasty Shrimp Brantley and very good Caesars salad. My partner's New York steak was the best he's had in ages. For a fantastic dinner, make it a point to go here.

Thank southwestmarti47
