Been there for just a couple of beers, lunch, dinner and every beer is good and cold, with a selection that is hard to match. Both the lunches and dinners are impressive, from burgers to pasta - it does get a little loud when college or pro sports is on but hey, you would be disappointed if it didn't get... More

There were a number of diners there but I was greeted almost as soon as I walked in by a waitress who asked if I wanted to order something to drink. This was before I even sat down.

The service was great, the burgers were truly the best I've had anywhere iin a long time. Prices were very reasonable and the bar/restaurant was nicely laid... More

Pike Cafe is a wonderful surprise waiting to be discovered in this blue collar city. It has its own large parking lot thus eliminating city problem #1. It has a large bar with a wonderful array of on-tap and bottled beers including craft beers. There are always beers on special..my last visit I paid $3. for 16 oz. craft beer.... More

Been here a bunch of times and it's a good place to relax and have a nice meal. Had a nice dinner with my wife and the food was good, service was good and the value is good. It's better than regular bar fare and is always a good place to visit.

I've enjoyed this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. There are always great food and drink specials. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable about how everything is prepared. Reservations are recommended for weekends and holidays!

Give our food to someone else....let it sit there for a minute....carry it back to the kitchen, then bring it back to us.....pretty crappy....food was decent, but the thought of the mid 50's blonde breathing on my wing kinda wrecked it......yes Mike from the pike....your customers do notice when your staff screws up

Was down the street at Reverb and popped in for a quick beer. Bartenders were friendly, great people and food was great. Would highly suggest stopping in if you're passing by
