The hubby and I have dined at Chef Mike's several times, our favorites off the menu are the shrimp cocktail and any of the burgers. We have had a couple of the dinner entrees, and they seem a bit overpriced for what you get. This is a great charcoal grill burger joint - get one the way you like it and enjoy!

We stayed at the Hampton Inn close by and thought we would try this restaurant. We found the food very good and the service very hospitable. While it is true the wait staff may not be the most polished, they were friendly and hospitable, that counts a lot for us. I loved the charcoal grilling of each entree, I had the filet and my husband had a pork chop. The vegtables and potatoes were done well and tasty. Overall a pleasant experience.

They cook everything on a charcoal grill here. It tasted like it was cooked ON the charcoal. Burger was not good, very thick and pretty juicy, but the taste was off. Came with fries, but I ordered a different side, which came just fine, along with fries. My daughter, who ordered a basic cheeseburger and fries, has STILL not gotten her fries.

Overall, service was slow. For burgers and fries on the grill, it took us over an hour and a half to order, get our food and eat. The server didn't refill drinks unless specifically asked to do so.

Don't bother ordering dessert either. Take a walk to Steak & Shake for a sweet treat instead of wasting your money here. Oh well. It was a good idea to try a local place. For lunch today, we'll be eating at a tried and true restaurant.

We took a couple out to celebrate their anniversary here. It was embarassing. The food, the service, the wait staff all left something to be desired. The resturant was very dated and the wait staff had street clothes on. It looked like they might have been customers themselves. Do not waste your money.

The exterior and the interior are scuzzy. Salad had a gnat in it. Waitress was nice but the clientele is a littly iffy.
