“Superb!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

My husband and I went to Garlic Mike's on recommendation from the hotel where we stayed. My husband had the lasagna that he said was delicious. Even though it is an Italian restaurant, one of the specials that evening was elk. I had never tasted elk before, but it was absolutely positively delicious. It was the best meal I had while on vacation. Drinks and service was also great.

“Gunnison's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Great food; reasonable cost; nice site on the river; a little out of town, but worth the drive.
Probably a good idea to reserve ahead. They seem to get a lot of large groups. So even though the restaurant is very large, they could fill up. They were very crowded when we went, but found room for us anyway. Good food, and "yes" plenty of garlic!

“A surprise awaits inside the roadhouse look outside.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Garlic Mike's was recommended by the Tall Texan Campground owner nearby. The local roadhouse look outside belies the smart, warm, well done interior. The hard working hostess and the wait staff obviously are well trained by Mike and enjoy working in his restaurant. The service was excellent from the bartender to the busser. Everyone was attentive and the pace of the meal was just right. We had very tender and yummy Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer. A mushroom soup came next. It was thick and hot. Janny had Chicken Cacciatore and I had Chicken Parmesan. Both dishes were excellent. We will recommend Garlic Mike's to anyone interested in excellent food with an excellent atmosphere.
