My family of 10 had an early Thanksgiving meal at Mikes. The chalk board, where they list the menu had a dozen or so veggies on it, and most received excellent feedback from diners. I had turkey and dressing, which was good. It is a bit surprising to eat a sit down meal with meat and three veggies, roll, and... More

This is your basic looking restaurant but the food is so good. If you are looking for great service and good home cooked food, then this is the place for you. Excellent bevy of food choices on the menu. This diner also has a "special of the day" and it truly is a wonderful value meal with lots of choices.... More

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.
