“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

My husband had a wonderful flat bread pizza and I had the Irish stew that was the the special. They both were delicious. The wait staff was helpful and friendly. We were staying at a nearby hotel and this place was close to it but I would recommend it to anyone in the area. The food was really good.

“Upscale hotel bar.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Mick's is colocated with a hotel, but is a bit nicer than the typical hotel bar. They have a pretty good sportsbar/pub type menu with rotating specials steaks etc. Overall, the food there is good and reasonably priced. I have had the pork tenderloin sandwich, the burger, the nachos and a few other things. They have an excellent selection of beer served very cold. (Some beers should be served at slightly different temps than others, but they serve them all ice cold). They have a fairly substantial liqour selection as well.

They offer bar seating, booths, tables and pub tables. They have seasonal patio seating. There are plenty of tv with sports or music videos playing. There is a little stage that is configured as lounge when there is no band.

Two drawbacks to this place. 1st, the service is marginal as best and often bad. The waitstaff often doesn't know the menu. They cannot explain the dishes. They fumble through the specials. They are disorganized and forgetful. I have never had a server that I thought was outstanding. Sitting at the bar and ordering directly from the bartender will result in a better experience.

2nd, when they are busy, the run out of dishware and bring drinks in plastic cups. It bothers me that they recognize they have a problem and stock plastic cups as back up. Why not buy more glassware or get a better dishwasher? I am not a fratboy. I hate plastic cups.

This was the worst food and the worst service that I have ever PAID for. The waitress was argumentive and the manager didn't have time to hear the situation that we where served something other than what we ordered. - Will never eat there again.

“Standard "pub" fare, hearty and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

We enjoyed the restaurant which had good food and good service at a reasonable price. The food was fresh and the menu had a full range of choices from small plates and appetizers, to sandwiches, to full sized entrees.

This is my preferred restaurant/bar for traveling in the area. Great place to relax, eat, enjoy friendly conversations, and sports after work.
