Not the best, however, compensated graciously. Biggest issue was food saturated in salt. Must have been a mishap in kitchen. Also, noise level very disturbing, for an anticipated "fine dining" experience. The owner was attentive and up to the issues at hand. Perhaps we might try again someday.

I had lunch here yesterday with friends. We all thought our food was tasty and delicious. The portions were large and we felt we had good value for our money. The waitress was attentive and efficient. Overall, a great place for lunch in this area.

You would never imagine such a great restaurant exists behind a shopping center storefront.My wife and I frequent Chex Mike's and never had a bad experience. They have excellent lunches also (til 3pm).

We ate twice at chez Mike and all our dinners were excellent.We had Calves liver (excellent), short ribs, steak and halibut. The steak was the low mark,better options are on the menu.the calamari were terrific,salads were great with the exception of an average Caesar. Some unusual options were available like smoked lamb belly! Parking easy and free. Service good.

In a grocery store strip mall, on a stretch of road with a variety of fast food restaurants, oil change garages and gas stations... hidden in plain sight... one of the best restaurants in the area! We had fish and chips and the mac and cheese, both were great. The cocktail sauce accompanying the fish was the best I've ever... More

Mike is a CIA-trained chef with a diverse menu that changes often. One of the few restaurants locally that offers calves liver, which is one of my favorites to order out.The vegetables that come with entrees are done perfectly- not limp and overcooked like most places, which is one sign of a great restaurant. Consistent quality, reasonable prices and very... More
