Thanks for being a repeat diner. The wildlife is pretty neat. However, my wife wishes they would just order a salad and not eat the flowers! Grazie!

The atmosphere at Garlic Mike's is cozy and wonderful....but the food is INCREDIBLE!! Make reservations, people know this place is exceptional. It's worth a stay in Gunnison just to have dinner here. The patio is wonderful

My family has been vacationing off-and-on in Gunnison since 1962 and I had never eaten at Garlic Mike's even though it opened in 1994. Very good food (chicken part, lasagne), attentive staff and nice setting. Good choice for diner tonight!

Four of us had dinner after touring Black Canyon Rim. All had excellent dinners. Entrees included salad and bread. The portions were large. Service was excellent. Recommend reservation on the back porch for a view of the river.
