This is rapidly becoming a favorite place for a good meal at a good price with great service. The menu has familiar items, but don't expect the "usual" preparations. There's always a spin on the spice or an ingredient that's tweaked so you get a nice balance of comforting and new flavors.
I've gotten eggs benedict several times at brunch; there are nice variations - salmon, crab and shrimp, petite filet - along with a more traditional one with bacon. But what's really nice is that the Hollandaise is very light and the whole dish isn't drowned in the sauce. Since the theme is Grand Marnier, there are several brunch cocktails featuring the liquor. If you don't like Grand Marnier, don't fear, the Bloody Marys and Mimosas are great. The steak and eggs and "just breakfast" are also good choices. Meat is always cooked to the requested temp and the eggs are never overcooked. And you don't have to get out of your comfy weekend clothes to walk into Mike's.
I was there for New Year's Eve dinner and the kitchen held true. Around the table, we had baked stuffed lobster, cioppino, surf and turf - all very good with little twists that made the meals well above average. (I'm happy to report that the vegetable sides are NOT limp - fresh veggies perfectly cooked with light seasoning.) The portobello mushroom cap stuffed with crab is not to miss - SO good! But skip the crab appetizer if it's on the menu - just average, and there are so many more interesting things to choose from. The dessert that night was ok, but not fabulous. What was really nice is that we were not rushed through dinner - I'll be remembering that for future special occasions.
Just go, pick something that makes you smile and prepare to enjoy the meal. :-)
