“good food, limited menu, hard to park”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I saw one of the recent reviews and that just summed it up. Had lunch here yesterday after not having eaten at Mike's for 10+ years (I live in Northern Virginia but not near Springfield). Food was actually pretty good and reasonably priced. Waiter was accommodating when I asked for Bleu cheese substitution on the Cheddar cheeseburger. I was somewhat taken aback by the limited menu to the point that I was trying to find another page to the menu. Regardless, it had the basics and what we ordered was good. The waiter did spill an iced tea on the arm of one of our party but the manager was right there with his card and an offer to have the suit cleaned. Was not a disaster.

Beware the parking. VERY limited parking on the restaurant grounds. No signs for alternative parking (that we saw) but there is parking at a strip mall across the street. Again, as the reviewer noted, you must cross a VERY busy street with no lights or crosswalk.

Reviewed November 2, 2012

Mike's crab corn chowder is excellent. We had the salmon salad and Mike's salad. Both were excellent. For desert we shared a white chocolate bread puddling-WOW. Very interesting building too.

“Good food bad parking”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

I have been going to Mikes for, Most visits have been great. Their parking lot is tiny and they offer you to park across the street. If you park across the street (NO CROSSWALK) you have to dash through traffic. Maybe they could come up with something to help with this problem. One visit we waited so long that we had to wrap it to go as soon as the food came. The wait was long the food took forever and we had to pick up my daughter, did not thisnk we needed 3 hours to eat. They were not accomadating. Since that event we have had no more problems. As for the food I have not been dissapointed. The service is usually above par, Sometimes it is a little noisey. Love the crab cakes.

“What a find”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Great food at a reasonable price in a upscale atmosphere. Some of the best crab cakes I ever had. Very close proximity to Towne place Suites.
