Love the "throw back to an earlier time" when food was delicious and everyone was friendly! Mike'son Main embodies this and a great atmosphere. Can't go wrong with breakfast, lunch or one of their wonderful malt shakes.

My sister and I stopped in MIke's on Main for a late breakfast and were delighted with our discovery. The ham and cheddar scramble was delicious, the hash browns crispy, the biscuit fluffy, and the coffee divine (and refilled very often!). Great value for the price! We will be stopping at Mike's every pass through Hendersonville from now on. In... More

Beautiful day to sit outside and enjoy the weather. Late sandwich with our dogs relaxing in the shade. Next 50's style restaurant. Chicken salad sandwich was very good.

We went to Mike's on Main today and won't be back. The chicken fingers were processed like fast food chicken. They were not good, not worth the $9.00 we paid. The waiter was very rude. He acted like we were a bother. The waitress that brought the food to the table threw it on the table and walked away. No... More

This former drug store is now a soda fountain and cafe and retains the atmosphere of earlier days. Breakfasts here are very good (try the parfait!) and lunch sandwiches and specials are generous in size and quality.

This is a old drug store converted into a restaurant. Basic menu, but good food. The price is reasonable and the atmosphere is great.

Food is good and the atmosphere is great! Has tables and counter seating, like an old fashioned soda shop. Staff is friendly and efficient! Prices are reasonable.

I wish there were more businesses like this one--providing something new to the community while preserving the history of a historic downtown location. The food was good, but the real selling point was the atmosphere and the excellent milkshakes/malts. We were there on a slow Sunday afternoon, and the servers were helpful and attentive.

Mike's is a classic: It is a soda shop where an old-time pharmacy used to be. The authenticity is fabulous -- from the tin ceiling, to the black-and-white floor, to the "real" soda fountain counter, to the ice cream soda mixers, to the pharmacy bottle collection, to the Rock-ola juke box, etc., etc. Oh, and even the servers are dressed...

One of the most difficult things to find in a so-called Soda Shop are REAL 1950s ice cream sodas. This place makes them! And they make good sandwiches and breakfasts too. Atmosphere is authentic, wait/serving staff is in period dress, and yet it's not expensive and more about what they serve than how things look. If you're in town in... More
