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

This place has some awesome entrees! I was not expecting such a variety on the menu. This place has way more than bar fare so do not be fooled! The Parking area is a plus as well. This place gets crowded but it is worth the wait. The Draft Beer selection is pretty large so it if you forget to... More

First time customer. Parking lot across the street. Bigger inside than appears outside. Friendly bartenders and neat bar. Dining area fairly plain. Lots of tv screens tho; great for viewing any sports. I was with a group of ten and the Pike was nice to do separate checks for all us couples. Usual food selection for the area for the... More
