Service was bad at the high point of the meal, seated for 15 min before the "server" took a drink order, and the food order as we had plenty of time to decide. 2 teas, and water all around. Another 15 min and still no drinks.. Manager brought drinks to the table, and bread baskets. Food finally arrives. One meal... More

Honestly, sometimes the service is right on and other times it takes you forever to get your food. I went in about seven days ago in the morning for breakfast and was left standing at the front for about 15 minutes and no one ever even addressed to me. Once seated the waitress was very attentive and nice. The food... More

Was back in Ocala and craved one of Mimi's great muffins. The honey oat muffins, heated up, are always a treat. That hasn't changed. Unfortunately neither has the service. Staff was pleasant, but service was slow. Three of us had lunch. We all agreed it was good, but not special.

A really bad night. Were they off or were we expecting too much? The two of us entered, were seated, and waited for more than 10 minutes for someone to come to our table. Finally a waitstaff person arrived although it was not her station. The restaurant was not busy but we were ignored. Our drink order was taken, our... More

We are "fans" of Mimi's Cafe and applaud them for the wonderful "rewards" offered to their customers. The chicken under the brick is my favorite dinner entree, and you can't beat the $5. glass of wine. Waitstaff is pleasant, but service can be slow.

Mimi's was crowded but we were seated quickly. Server was not on her game, very distracted almost to the point of rude, but meals were good and we would consider going again.

This place tries to be French but it really isn't. It's not that bad though, but it's not great. The staff was super nice though

Used to love Mimi's. Have not been in several years because of distance to Ocala. But I was in town to shop at Sam's with my daughter. Mimi's was nearby so... I asked for their gluten free menu. The ONE menu item other than salad was salmon. The only fish I will not eat because of smell and it being... More

We have stopped at this exit numerous times on our way to southwest FL. On weekdays, Homewood Suites has happy hour and a light dinner, so we usually haven't eaten out. This was a Friday, so we were on the hunt for a place to eat.....preferably, within walking distance as the traffic was horrible coming into Ocala New Year's Weekend.... More

After arriving we waited and waited, sometimes old people look like they take too much time to decide but it is easier to decide if the waitress would arrive at the table to express specials and new items. $8 for 2 pancakes is way too much to ask. What ever gives them the idea that two small pancakes are worth... More
