This is a friendly neighborhood place for a burger and a drink. I got a reuben sandwich and it was delicious. Service was friendly and timely. We were there on a weekday for lunch (a group of women). It was neither crowded or noisy but I do not know about nights and weekends. I would definitely go there again, maybe... More

Had lunch at Mike's Place last week. Our server, April, was friendly and prompt. We started with homemade mozzarella sticks (4 huge sticks, hand-breaded) with great marinara sauce ($7). I was surprised how good these were; not the prepackaged variety. We will definitely order these again! Both my hubby and I had the Big O burger ($8 each) with fries.... More

I love going to Mike's for the fried seafood. It's as good as my other favorite, Surfrider! Also, love the garden salad with the yummy blue cheese dressing! My Mother loves the corn beef and cabbage! The desserts are fabulous! I have been going to Mikes since I was a teenager. One of my faves was the pita wrap with... More

I have frequented this restaurant since shortly after it opened in 1981, and it's always a favorite of mine and my family. Ownership changed hands a few years ago; while the menu has remained the same, the BIG change is the addition of "Libby's desserts" which are amazing. Libby (she and her husband bought the place from Mike) makes all... More

Recently went on a Sunday night for dinner. There were three of us and it was around 1830 and there was only four other people in there. Felt like being in a shady bar in a B rated movie. Food was not bad, had seafood and prime rib. Overall tab was not too expensive maybe a little over what was... More

Had heard about MIke's Place for years, but had never visited before. Decided to give them a try. We have sure been missing out! This is a seat yourself, homestyle pub. If you are looking for "fancy" food, don't come here. Mike's has an extensive menu of down-home dishes. Everything is prepared there. Nice selection of draft and bottled beer.... More

The menu is very expensive entrees. Husband cannot eat fried food if shrimp is served, I have gluten and dairy allergy, thus not very much to choose. We go to a monthly meeting and often we miss just because of the menu. Takes a long time to get the checks. Bread is brought out way before the food. Personally I... More

Mike's Place is a Newport News tradition and I have been there many times before, but Mike sold it a year and a half ago, so was not sure what to expect. While looking over the "same old same Old" I discovered an Irish Sub! Had it served hot with slaw (instead of fries) and I must say it was... More

We had Ruebens, Turkey Ruebens, Irish Subs, Corned beef and Cabbage, Crab cakes, potato salad, seasoned french fries, green beer, Bloody Marys and Irish coffee.
