Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food. Casual dining, and diverse menu. Even better deal if you sign up for the Mimi’s email blast. They send out 2-for one coupons regularly. Corn Chowder is highly recommended.

Mimi's 3+ stars. I'd go to 4 but being a chain restaurant it's just tough for me to do that. That being said, Mimi's has a good menu selection. Something for everyone. The food is decent and prices are fair. Service is always great. I...More

I eat here quite often and am never disappointed. I am a member of the EClub so I get a BOGO Coupon every week. Love the Turkey Dinner, Salmon and Frits and the Berry Waffle for breakfast is great too. The best though is the...More
