Good food, decent prices and can't say more than enough about the great service. I have been coming to this restaurant on almost a weekly basis for years and plan to keep coming back.

The staff is always very friendly and the food is delicious. Our 11-year-old daughter loves the 1/2 chicken & she's a hard one to impress! They always have a nice selection of draft beer choices, we love IPA's and they normally have about a handful...More

I really enjoyed the fettuccine alfredo with grilled shrimp-something that I don’t readily find elsewhere. The restaurant was completely full but we weren’t in a hurry-enjoyed our beers while watching the Pacers on the big screen.

Chef Mike's is (ahem) unimposing. Tucked into a strip up against I465. The exterior, however, belies the quality of the food you are served (the interior ain't spectacular either - late model bar). The food is the reason to go, the grilled items (nearly everything)...More

I am an amateur grill cook who is constantly looking for new items to cook on my grill. I had a grilled pizza at Chef Mike's Charcoal Grill that was absolutely awesome. I'm now going to have to try it on my grill.

The beer was very tasty. Enjoyed each course of the dinner. The Pork Loin was very tender & very tasty. Especially liked the pumpkin beer paired with the desert. Chef Mike always does a great job with these beer dinners and I recommend them highly...More

We visit often for the Apple Onion Soup. Octoberfest menu was tasty and unique, burgers and pizzas always good. Love the charcoal grilled flavor, good service and quiet neighborhood feel. Mike makes a point to come out of the kitchen to greet guests.

Tucked away, but has juicy burgers with amazing flavor! Bourbon and chive mixed in and cooked on charcoal (I think). Must try!
