i liked the whole family type feeling I got when I entered the restaurant . it opens for breakfast early and you can have dinner there . There are always specials written on a whiteboard and prices are reasonable. Mike comes out and welcomes all the newcomers and "hellos" all the regulars.

I recently met a few business associates at Mike's Restaurant in Alliston. It's not on the main road but it's easy to find. I find that Mike's is the perfect spot to meet for a quality breakfast. It's good ol' comfort food. You can't beat the price and the service. It's the perfect location for an early morning business meeting... More

I visited Mikes Family Restaurant on the weekend of Jan 8th, 2017. The place was mostly full. I got one of the last two tables. I was kindly greeted in a timely manner by one of the waitresses. Given the capacity, I was surprised with how quickly the food arrived. The meal was pretty good. The one complaint I have... More

This was our first time visiting Mike's Restaurant. We were in search for a homemade diner breakfast. Unsure what to suspect, we decided to try Mike's. The atmosphere feels like a family gathering, the walls collaged with images from Mike's past. Friends, family, colleagues and regulars all involved in the memories. The menu is simple yet effective, I had the... More

We went to Mike's for breakfast Aug 5 2016. We just had the 2 egg meal which included 3 bug pieces of bacon and excellent potatoes. The restaurant is a bit off of the beaten path, (not on the main street). Anyway the highlight was talking to the owner Mike who explained his past cancer charity drives. All in all... More

We went for breakfast and we received large portions for a reasonable price. A bottomless cup of coffee and a smiling waitress. The best part of this restaurant is that Mike, the owner donates a portion of every cheque to cancer research. He has donated thousands of dollars so far, which you can read all about on the placemats. Not... More

My wife and I were on a brief getaway at the nearby Bona Vista B & B and Spa for our (2011) Anniversary and were looking for a restaurant for our evening meal. We did an internet search and settled on Mike's Family Restaurant on Wellington Street in Alliston... which turned out to be an excellent choice.The restaurant is a sort of sports bar with wall coverings of posters, pictures and various memorabilia of years of Mike's community support. Some great pictures of Marilyn Monroe are on the wall and I'd forgotten just how attractive she was. It turns out that Mike is also the chef... he was in the kitchen doing the cooking! The staff are all very friendly and like "family"... they seemed to know all their regular customers who were there.Supper was excellent and the steak and mushrooms I ordered was superb. My wife ordered liver and onions which she reports was melt-in-your-mouth excellent and far surpassed our usual place for this dish in Toronto!It was getting near closing time and Mike was out of the kitchen making the rounds and briefly chatting with his remaining customers who were universally lauding the expertly prepared meal they just had finished.His business card accurately boasts "Great Food, Great Service, Great Price" and Mike's is open Tuesday to Sunday from 8am to 8pm.We really enjoyed our first time, and we'll be visiting Mike's again next time we're in Alliston.Graham & Beverly /NewtonToronto, OntarioNovember 2011
