We had two couples eating dinner early before going to work. During the week, this place is a well kept secret. On weekends, waiting line can start in the parking lot. French Roast Beef is smooth and tasty. Tasted the Meatloaf and was tasty. The Mac and Cheese was a touch toooo salty for me. Excellent bar service. Deserts that... More

We had visited Mimi's a few years ago and had always enjoyed dining there. On this visit we had slow service and average food. It took us two hours to have a lunch mainly because of the service. It seems our waitress always was somewhere else. I believe they may have been understaffed as it was the Monday after Easter... More

The food was good. Our server was not attentive. She did not refill drinks or bring things when asked. It also took a very long time to get boxes and check. When glancing around, it appeared to be a common problem.

Our server was really nice, but service wasn't the greatest. The food, however, was wonderful. Best quiche I ever had, and several people had specialty breakfasts and loved them!

They were slammed, but we got a table right away in the bar area. We got two triple berry mimosas, farmhouse tacos, ham and egg crepes and split the cinnamon roll French toast. Everything was delicious and Stan the bartender was great!

Stopped for dinner while shopping the area. The food was good. The tomato bisque was very good. My server was close by when needed. I would stop by again the next time I am in the area.

Over the past year I have visited Mimi's several times for lunch. The first 3 or 4 times the food was excellent with one of my favorites being their French onion soup. Unfortunately that changed last year. The food came gold with congealed cheese on top. Even after sending the soup back it was returned only lukewarm. This occurred 3... More

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch one afternoon. We had the spinach salmon salad and a chicken guacamole sandwich with onion soup. The spinach was fresh and the salmon was seasoned very well. The chicken guacamole sandwich was tasty and the bread was very good. The onion soup had plenty of melted cheese and the fruit side was... More
