Mike's offers a great breakfast for a great price. Food and service are awesome. The staff is very friendly and the place is clean and comfortable.

Uneventful experience. Food was OK but the cornbread will dehydrate you. Service was good and country-fried steak was good as well. Atmosphere is very plain. Mostly local customers.

My family and I stopped at Mikes for lunch. Noone greeted us when we walked in so we just had a seat. Took 5 minutes for the server to notice us. When she came by for our order she was not welcoming or friendly at all. We choose the hamburger steak and gravy with veggies. The steak was good but... More

Ordered Roast Beef over rice. It was fine... kinda just strings of beef over rice. Green beans were okay. My friend said they tasted like they came out of a can. Fried Squash... I was expecting sauteed and they weren't but they did grow on me. I skipped the cornbread but heard it was dry. The chicken livers were a... More

First time visitor - Food was outstanding...but corn bread did not measure up to the food. Also...the sign on the door we entered was taped to the door...but must have fallen off. This sign said cash or checks only. We were lucky we had checks. This is a little surprising so there must be something going on in the background... More

Yes, Mike's spoiled our plans. We were in Ellijay for a week of our vacation and had our plans all laid out... we'd eat at one place this day, another this day, another this day but that plan fizzled. We made the mistake of following the advice of a local and the first restaurant we tried was Mike's. Well... I... More

The cornbread was hard as a brick. Chicken had a really bad odor and was not edible. Server did not even offer to take it off bill.

Well I had heard about this place from a couple of folks that live in the area. Was expecting it to be much better than it was. Don't get me wrong, it was ok, but not great by any means. I had breakfast and it was hot, tasty and priced right, so all good. The place is plain jane without... More

Stopped here around two in the afternoon. The service was very quick and we had our food promptly. I couldn't believe the size of the portions. Great southern style cooking and definitely filling. Best of all it is extremely economical. Three sides, a meat and tea for seven dollars per person. Be aware though no credit or debit cards. .

This is a simple, no frills restaurant with some of the best fried chicken I have had. Crispy and juicy! I also had the fried okra which was ok and the green beans were just like my Gran made, yum. The sweet tea was perfect, the waitress was attentive. The price was great too. 3 specials with tea and a... More
