REVIEWS OF Mike's American IN Virginia

Nes Robinson

I love the decor. Ms. Sara took good care of my friend and I. We ordered spinach and artichoke dip, field green salad, and smoked salmon with mashed potatoes. Everything tasted delicious. Yes I would highly recommend and hope to return.

Keisha Stokes

One of my favorite restaurants! Staff is EXCELLENT! Drinks are pretty good, as well as the food! Atmosphere, nice!

Jack Yu

Pretty good food and service. Open fairly late too.

jamil blackmon

When I ate there, I had the basic burger and fries. It was good. It was comfortably crowded, in a nice atmosphere.

Nichole L

I think it's amazing that I can visit a restaurant as perpetually busy as Mike's over a 20 year period and remain as satisfied as I am by their fresh warm bread with honey butter and yummy casual menu. Gotta love it. And the place remains clean, All American with great customer service.

Deb G

First ... you're greeted and feel welcomed upon entering. Once seated, our server Boris was phenomenal... friendly, hospitable, descriptive, and overly accommodating. Bacon cheeseburger was great with a big fluffy tender bun. Roasted brussel sprouts were out of this world. Husband was delighted with his babyback ribs. Daughter found the grilled salmon delicious. And ... it was my birthday ... chocolate waffle with chocolate sauce and ice cream ... yum! Highly recommend you try Mike's American Grill.

Ronald Davis

Food, atmosphere & customer service is great

Darrin Marshall

When I am in town I always go to Mike's. The service is always outstanding. They serve these amazing little pieces of bread. I have gone to Mike's about 6 times and I have always ordered the Salmon salad. I will eat Salmon but it is not normally my first choice. However at Mike's it is my only choice. The Salmon is the best I have ever had. Before I go I always think this isn't going to be as good as I remembered but it is every time.

Denelle

Really enjoyed the service and the atmosphere. The food was delicious and this served as a great 1st time experience.

Ronnie B

Mike's is one of our favorite local restaurants. Today we had red snapper.. DELICIOUS

Gabriel Vazquez

Very American I love this place. If you want an American dining experience you should come here

Nick Stumbo

Wow! I don't use platitudes that often, but this was truly the best salad I have ever eaten. The Mediterranean salad with the chicken slightly fried and the spice pecans was simply amazing. Not to mention the fried rolls that come to the table before dinner. I would come back for those alone. Definitely a must stop restaurant if you are ever in the DC area. Hope I get to come back again sometime. Thanks Mikes!

Lil Tunechi

I went to Mike's Wednesday night with my date. I ordered the crab cake with steak and mashed potatoes... I asked for my steak to be medium well. My plate came out I took 2 bites of my crab cake then cut my steak and noticed it was very well done. I waived my server over to show him and he agreed that it was well. I attempted to give him my plate but he only wanted to take the steak back... I know that steak takes a nice while to cook & really wasn't happy about not being able to

stephen fox

Great customer service and delicious food

Valerie H

The food and service at this restaurant are both excellent. The only negatives for us at this location were the limited amount of parking and how loud the restaurant was! We had to park across the street and cross the road without a convenient crosswalk.

Alyxz Long

Always great food and great ambiance.i just wish they still had the crab dip.

Laura Fries

Mike's is consistently delicious, which you can't say about many places. Their appetizers, especially the firecracker shrimp are really good. Love their brown butter sauce, and every single salad. Even the chicken fingers are good. The tequila penne or roasted chicken or salmon are delicious and you have to finish with one of their desserts!

Mishalle King

Great atmosphere, wait staff attentive and friendly. Food was wonderful, and my steak was cooked to temp! Awesome.

Candice Starks

Service was great! Not too long of a wait. Ordered crab cakes, didn't taste good. Pretty bland

Jeff Blum

I had the jambalaya pasta. It was okay, but they overdid it on the use of red pepper. This coming from someone who like spicy food. Also, salt and pepper on the table is a red flag that says the food is not adequately seasoned coming out of the kitchen.

Brad Musgrove

Always super fresh and delicious with impeccable service. Mike's is a great place for a casual business meal or family dinner. On my most recent visit, there was an issue with my meal. The wait staff immediately dealt with the issue, had the kitchen fire a fresh dish, kept me updated, and delivered a masterpiece a short while later. This is exactly how you run a successful restaurant. Nobody is perfect, but Mike's handles issues like a team of seasoned pros.

Sherene Bridgwater

I had a salad with salmon. Salmon was very salty! My husband had the chicken with mashed potatoes and butter gravy. Chicken was very very salty.

Nicole Grove

Incredibly delicious! Excellent service- Shannon at the bar was extremely welcoming ☆

Sterling Stokes

The food is incredible. Parking can be a challenge. Wait staff is courteous and fairly quick. Food and drinks are super.

Jerry Morales

Lots of people. Friendly atmosphere. Great food. Beer and desserts are awesome.

Dana Johnson

5/15/19 Update: I have returned several times. I tried the ribs again AND again. Ribs delicious! Service great! The crab cakes were great (and I'm picky about crab cakes!) Steak great. Go and you will leave happy. 5 stars! Firecracker shrimp was excellent! A wonderful blend of flavor. Mango martini hit the spot! Salad with salmon and goat cheese equally delicious and flavorful. The ribs though tender were bland. My friend who had had them before said they were not usually like that. They offered replacement but I was stuffed at that point and still pleased with my overall experience from the food and staff. I look forward to going back again.

S Johnson

One of my favorite restaurants. Excellent food & service.

Wendell Nealon

Busy busy busy. Parking lot was full. Inside the wait was minimal. The hostes was most gracious and our server was very attentive. The food I must say exceeded my expectations. It was prepared properly and was very tasty. My Kind of Dining.

Luther King

Local favorite for those in the Springfield area. Great food, welcoming atmosphere and relaxing vibe about the place. The short smoked salmon is a must try! You can’t go wrong with Mikes Great American Grill!

Jon

Meal was excellent. Staff was friendly and the atmosphere was pleasant. I'm looking forward to to coming back and bring my wife for a date night.

R. James

Great restaurant with nice staff of servers. Very extended menu and a wonderful atmosphere. If ever in the DMV area - you must check out Mike's American. Don't forget to try the bread pudding - it will make you think your Grandmother made it since it''s so very good.

Rikki Pugh

My favorite place to eat. Always great service. Food is always great. I've been coming here for years and have never had a complaint

Bruce Fitton

Mike's American is incredibly, reliably enjoyable. Never a bad meal, never bad service. Great steaks and fish.

Ernell Bunch

NThe food was fantastic, just delicious. Was there celebrating my NEPHEW High school graduation. The waiter was very prompt and polite. Enjoyed.

Bradley Shaw

This was my first visit. The crab cakes were delicious. Only thing, be sure and call ahead. Long waits are normal.

Michael Cieslak

First time I have been to one of the Great American Restaurant chains in awhile. I had been boycotting since I discovered they gave the most PAC money, around $50k, to defeat the meals tax in Fairfax, VA. The meals tax was supposed to help support our schools. Nevertheless, we had to new colleagues begin their new jobs today so we ended up taking them to Mike's. I would say the food was typical of any of their other restaurants - good, but a bit over priced. I had the Warm Goat Cheese and Spiced Pecan salad. It was pretty good. We had a party of 10 and they did a pretty good job with service during the prime of lunch. The way they handled the bill for a large group was odd, but in the end it was correct.

Tonya Pemberton

The food was absolutely delicious. My husband couldnt stop talking about how buttery and "gourmet" his pulled pork sandwich was. I enjoyed my field greens salad and oysters as well but the apple pecan pie is what will have me coming back and breaking my diet. The staff was also very courteous, professional and helpful. Items came out quickly despite it being lunchtime and empty plates were whisked away magically. The atmosphere was also very welcoming and delightful. We will definitely be returning.

Chris P

I am personally not a fan of the place as they don't seem to cook beef all that great. With that said, the people who live around here love it and it is always packed. So if this is your thing then have at it. I only go when my wife begs me to, but she only eats fish. I eat beef and I am not fired up the way they cook and serve beef.

Melinda McCutcheon

Always a pleasant experience, server didn't allow me to finish my drink before placing another one. I wish i knew his name...Awesome service

Jeffrey Geraci

Great, busy, bar and restaurant. Servers were on their A game. Stopped in for a beer and app, on way to another appointment. Calamari was a little greasy but good. Mike's Amber ale was on point. Want to go back for dinner. Everything looked amazing! Parking was not bad because I got there early, but was tight when I left!

Sonia Jackson

Today we celebrated a special family birthday. We had a table of 12, and Simone made it all possible. She was a delight from the first time I spoke to her on the phone, at the restaurant when we arrived, and throughout our visit. The food was delicious and the service absolutely perfect! We will definitely choose Mike’s for our next celebration!

David Silvernail

As always, a great lunch. GAR always nails it and makes for a wonderful experience. Love to take out of town visitors here because I never have to worry that they wont like it.

Chris Enriquez

Had a phenomenal experience. We reserved our table online for 7 people on a Saturday night about an hour before we arrived and basically walked right in and sat down. Our waitress was awesome anna and our food was great (as always). The bread is so amazing and the steak salad I had is probably one of the best I've ever eaten. The people with me were all raving about their food as well. My only gripe with this place is still the limited parking, but there's not much they can do about that and you can always park across the street like we usually do.

Jeffrey Geraci

nilson lobo

The service here is very friendly. We ordered the smoked salmon filet and it was one of the most delicious food I have ever eaten.This was the first time we came to Mike's and we will definitely come here again soon.

C Jones

Food's always good, parking situation awful. Park across the street at the shopping center then jaywalk across -- no cross walk. Sometimes service is a bit slow when they're very busy. Friendly staff.

Dan Convery

Food was good, the bartender Shannon was great. Very positive and energetic.

Chris Ricard

Excellent food but pricey ... is it worth the high prices? Still not sure. Food is very good, but not the best I have tasted ... they did get our drink order wrong, but came back with the correct drinks ... Will go back, but will be a bit due to cost

Valerie Hughes

The food here is always excellent. The biggest challenge for this restaurant is parking! Make sure to get there early or else you're parking across the street and have to cross a busy road without a convenient walkway or crosswalk.

Arthur James

We are really bad customers because we quit coming years ago when the wait for a table became too long. On a whim we decided to eat out so I looked up their phone to see if we could add our name to the wait list, and saw that MAG now has reservations. The cheerful clerk had our table waiting at 530 pm as we requested. The waitress was very helpful and faster than we imagined. The burgers were great (mine was so juicy that I needed to wash hands). Everything was speedily served. We will be back. I did not get to try the corn salsa that was listed as part of the grilled chop as a side order to the hickory burger, so that will be one of the next dishes to try. JAH

Kaire Caballero

My boyfriend and I loved this place. The atmosphere was amazing. The food was tasty and our server was pleasant. There was a small bump with our order, but we were taken care of.

Mike Pinkowski

This is a great example of getting what you pay for. It's not the cheapest place around, but you'll never feel shortchanged after a meal here.

Cory Brown

Always a perfect meal! Have been 100s of times on the past 20 years and always have a perfect experience! Salmon salad is to die for. Great service/ always consistent! A +++

Mario Beckles

Best rib eye steak that I can ever remember.

Geoff Walsh

Really good food, extensive menu and bar selection. Nothing exotic, but always tasty meals and helpful staff. This place can get really busy during peak dinner time and on weekends

Michael Marchio

Part of the "Great American Restaurant" group. You know exactly what you are getting here. Amazing customer service and outstanding food. The atmosphere is spacious yet homey and you never feel like leaving. Nothing tastes bad on the menu and you always leave more than satisfied. First time I've been to this one but I 100% recommend

alana beck

This was our first time to Mike's but we have been to a Great American Restaurant before and they have fantastic bread. They have these little buns that taste like non sweet doughnuts. Our meals were fantastic. Order the roasted chicken which had this wonderful smoky taste and the burger which was huge. We waited 2 minutes for a table on a busy night because we made reservations (just 15 minutes beforehand). We will be going back.

Sonia Jackson

Today we celebrated a special family birthday. We had a table of 12, and Simone made it all possible. She was a delight from the first time I spoke to her on the phone, at the restaurant when we arrived, and throughout our visit. The food was delicious and the service absolutely perfect! We will definitely choose Mike’s for our next celebration!

Nathan Yerian

Great spot for a quick, but good lunch! Everything was fresh, cooked perfectly and plated well. What more do you want? Give the filet mignon tip pasta with lime tequila cream sauce a try. Warning: You May need a nap, but it so worth it!

Michael Reesor

Food was great, first time ever eating dinner there a d definitely recommend it

Amanda Turcotte

Another great meal at Mike's. We dined in the bar area this time to watch sports. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Food was good...drinks were great...I tried a couple signature cocktails and my husband tried local brews. I ordered the pecan crusted trout, which was pretty good. I still think the steak I ordered on a previous visit was better, but the trout was pretty decent. We would always come back and recommend Mike's to others looking for a good meal, great people and great atmosphere. Thanks!

Joyce Lofty

Good food & outstanding service.

Georges Hayek

This restaurant is part of the greatest American food chain but unfortunately, it was a great disappointment. The king salmon, which was the fish of the day, was not fresh and not cooked to my desire and was tasteless. The only good aspect of the meal was the Saratoga sparkling water and the waiter Mike was really friendly.

Richard Hunter

I have not been here in quite sometime. I stopped coming because I felt rushed and the prices keep climbing. Just something not "right".....at least for me. So I stopped by again recently after finishing up a class to get a beer. The beer was good and service was efficient, but no spare words were spared for me. The conversation was exclusively reserved for one guy at the bar who was talking basketball. It must have worked, because they brought him additional plates of food that they said were mistakenly made. This was on top of the meal he had just finished. Oh well, I guess he is a regular and should get the benefits of such. But some simple bartender to patron conversation would have been nice. The beer was good. It is close, so I will probably go back sometime, but just not real soon.

Martha Nash

Wonderful atomsphere. Our server was super friendly and patient with the kids. The only downfall is the limited parking and the tight parking slots.

George Walton 3

Go there a lot. Always satisfied. There chicken fingers are off the chain with the honey mustard sauce. G3.

Terel Roman

Oh man!!!! Where do you start?! Food... Delicious! Service... Outstanding! Atmosphere... Perfect. I love this place. It's a must go! The rolls alone make you want a 2nd trip. oh, and get the drunken ribeye... Is there even anything else on the menu?

Sara Peterson

Amazing! This place NEVER disappoints. I recently called the same day for a reservation for two to include an out of town guest that is both vegan and gluten free. I was greeted with a very pleasant, "welcome back!" once I provided my phone number. The waitress was super knowledgeable and helpful, the menu included a whole section that my guest could easily/readily choose from, the food came quickly and it was super delicious. VERY PLEASED. I always look for an opportunity to return. THANK YOU!

Toni Miller

Pecan crusted trout with brussel sprouts was fabulous! The little round rolls melt in your mouth.

Stephen Trumbull

It might be the rough day I had, but this was a great place to spend some time. The building is really cool. Just very open. All the brick and wood keep the theme. The service is also very good. We sat at the bar, and the bartenders were all friendly and quick. Didn't have any food, but it looked good. An OK beer selection.

richmond carter

The service there is immaculate! Our server Carlos was one of the best I've ever had! First time, we will definitely be back next time we are in town!

Andre Campbell

This place is my all time favorite restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is alway on point .

Bianca Anderson

I love all of the Great American restaurants but this one was quite memorable. Food is always superb but the service was what stood out this visit. It was Mothers Day and our server was handling a lot of tables. She still made sure we were well taken care of. So sweet!

Amanda

Not a lot of parking within their parking lot especially when it’s busy. Very spacious inside. Friendly staff. Food was good.

huntressmalice Poole

Order the Drunk RibEye, it was great. But I gave it only 3 stars because (onion added to calamari as if tentacles, we know the difference!!) and service was just okay.. it should be better at those prices.

Keenan Gibbs

Mike's NEVER disappoints. The food here is always perfect. Last night we had the BEST waitress. As soon as I find my receipt, I'll update this with her name.

perri fraino

Love this place. We stop whenever we're in town! Fresh salads and delicious Louisiana Pasta!

Willard Ortiz

Attractive inviting venue. Menu has a wide selection. Tongue in cheek note is offered on cooking steak which recommends: If you want your steak well-done...ORDER CHICKEN. After several staff members appeared at the table, Manuel came to take orders and coordinate the service. His energy was infectious. Food was flavorful and prepared as requested. Beverages were refreshed as needed without prompting.

David Silvernail

As always, a great lunch. GAR always nails it and makes for a wonderful experience. Love to take out of town visitors here because I never have to worry that they wont like it.

Ed S

Poor experience of the service that I have become accustomed to receiving at Mike's Great American Restaurants. Mid week late luncheon with the wife, the salad which was custom ordered to be Gluten Free was delivered to the table with breaded fried chicken on top, while my Reserve Rib-Eye steak cooled at the table. Salad was returned to the kitchen, and reappeared so quickly, I am sure that all that was done was to sweep the fried chicken from the top, and replaced with grilled chicken. Manager that accompanied the waiter on redelivery offered a brief-sincere apology, but, looked like she recognized that our meal was a defect. Explanations offered by the waiter deflected blame on the system, the kitchen, etc. No offer of a comp, future discount, remove the dish from the bill, etc. For $90, this was a train wreck of a meal. The steak was prepared perfectly, but, was obscured by the wait to fix the salad. I orgered a virgin lime margarita as a drink, that was not delivered until after the meal was served. It was a mohito. We had to request straws three times. Mike's Great American restaurants is well known for great service. I am a regular diner at the other restaurants further north. I believe that this was an error, but, without an offer to fix the bad, it is in my book, and this review, as a fail.

Michael Bond

This was a pleasant surprise to go here. From the outside it looks like a standard chain restaurant but inside from the friendly and quietly efficient staff to the great food it was pleasure to eat here. I wouldn't hesitate to go here again if I was in Springfield again.

Peter Hamilton

I have been coming to Mike’s for more than 15 years and it has always been great. My most recent visit wasn’t as warm and fuzzy. It seems as though the service and the food has taken a step back. I ordered the baby back ribs as usual. The taste: very dry, The sauce: bitter The tea that I ordered was decent but when I finished my first cup my waiter asked if I wanted another cup of hot water? Is this the usual? That it would not include a new tea bag? What am I going to do with WEAK tea. And why is this restaurant extremely cold? So much so that you really do need a jacket. My whole family was uncomfortable the entire time. I truly hope that Mike’s is reading this feedback so that changes can be made.

Jarrod Dieppa

Great food! The steaks are cooked just right without too much seasoning. The crab cakes are crispy with large chunks of meat. Their shortcake is very tasty as well. The service was wonderful on a busy afternoon. The only drawback was having to park across the street.

Scott McIntosh

My experience at Mike's was truly outstanding. The food was superb and served quickly. The service could not have been better. I recommend Mike's with as much enthusiasm as I'm capable of. Go bring your friends and family. Truly outstanding. Thank you!

Chris Allen

Incredible steak and salmon. Worth the wait and the crowd. A nice dinner for two is about $100 but there are less expensive options. Kids meals are affordable. Make a reservation.

Greg Slonim

In my opinion, this is the only restaurant in Springfield which delivers consistently good food. Their grilled smoked salmon is outstanding. Their baby-back ribs are great. Their half chicken is truly spot-on. I live in Europe, therefore I am pretty spoiled when it comes to good food, however, I’ve always enjoyed coming to Mike’s for excellent quality, consistency, and great service. Beware of their portion sizes, they are fairly large.

Jarrod Dieppa

Angee R

Clean restrooms. Jambalaya was flavorful and fresh tasting even as a left over. Steak was well seasoned and tender. Great bread and butter.

Sheelagh Evans

Food was incredible. The service - not so much. We had a reservation for 7:45. Got there at 7:43. Did not get seated until 8:10. Our order wasn't taken until 8:45.

Marquitta Harris

Very busy location. Parking is a nightmare! Service was pretty good and the food was great! Suggest making a reservation online. It seems that it helped to move to the front of those who walked in. Bar was very busy. Don't think this is going to make it quicker, we waited longer to get a server in the bar than we did in the dining area. This is still one of my favorite places to go

Hope Breen

We googled “vegetarian friendly restaurants” and this came up as #2 in the area. I will admit, I did not look at the menu before hand but when it said vegetarian restaurant I figured I’d be okay... we sit down and there is ONE vegetarian option, pasta and vegetables. We asked the waitress about an alternate menu since it was advertised online that it was vegetarian friendly WITH vegan options. I mean, it was vegetarian friendly in the sense that they were friendly to me as a vegetarian/human but the menu did not offer appropriate options to label themselves as a restaurant with vegan/vegetarian options. The best they could do was if I wanted a salad was they would serve it without meat... when we asked to speak to a manager, just to notify them that this was online and probably should be changed because it’s basically a steakhouse, the manager just said she wouldn’t comp our meal because it wasn’t their fault. We did not ask for any meal comps, just wanted them to be aware so more people don’t come expecting vegetarian and vegan options. Disappointed in not only the food options but in how it was advertised and handled.

Jason Brown

Mike's is always a great place to eat. I have eaten there multiple times and each and every time the food has been delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful!

Scott McIntosh

My experience at Mike's was truly outstanding. The food was superb and served quickly. The service could not have been better. I recommend Mike's with as much enthusiasm as I'm capable of. Go bring your friends and family. Truly outstanding. Thank you!

Calvin Moore

Service was great. The food wwas delicious and cooked perfectly! Excellent choice for dinner

Jef Flanagan

The best. Has always been the best. Never disappointed over any item. Great people. Great attitudes. Test kitchen for all Great American restaurants in basement. Great for company parties as well. Huge bar. Multi floors with elevator. Spotless bathrooms.

Chris Allen

Incredible steak and salmon. Worth the wait and the crowd. A nice dinner for two is about $100 but there are less expensive options. Kids meals are affordable. Make a reservation.

Ford Terrill

Get the bread. It's like Krispy Kreme and dinner had a baby. Or, four bread babies. Also, best crab cakes I've ever had!

Trey DaRosa

This place is awesome every time! Delicious food, reasonable prices, friendly staff and an amazing atmosphere. This restaurant is definitely worth trying!

Alan C

Great food that is always consistently made and timely served no matter how busy. Also reasonably priced. We have gone here for years and it is one of the very best, more upscale yet casual restaurants in Springfield.

Julie Waganor

Excellent, reasonably-priced, quality food. Great ambiance for work dinner meetings or to go out with the significant other on a nice little date!

Lindsay Krueger

I was concerned when we first pulled in and saw a jammed parking lot at 2:30pm on a Saturday. I assumed we'd have a wait. The restaurant is so big and so we'll managed and staffed that we were seated immediately and our food came out in under 30 minutes. Staff all helped to clear our table or get refills very often. The building is enormous and allowed for a large dining crowd. I saw 2 kitchens as I was walked upstairs to be seated. It definitely makes a difference. All staff were very polite and helpful. We took definitely be back to eat here again.

Jamal Mitchell

Bread was good as well as the crab cakes and the bread pudding. Unfortunately, the elevator was not working the last time I went. Apparently they have a second elevator. Also, the water in the men's bathroom was scalding hot and since its automatic, you cant adjust the temperature. Some folks in the bathroom didn't bother to use the soap.

Brian Haug

Ordered three kid's chicken strip meals... None of the kids liked them because they were loaded with black pepper and way too spicy for young children. The kids ate the fries and I packed the chicken strips to go. Once home I removed the crispy batter coating in the hope of saving the seemingly large chicken strips. To my surprise the strips were only about 30% meat... The rest was batter. Mike's is one of our family favorites got adults but the kids chicken strips are a disappointment.

Vicki Lamb

2nd time we've eaten there while visiting our Fairfax, VA family. Great food, awesome atmosphere.

Derek Cho

Great food, drinks, and atmosphere. Had the salmon... Excellent.

Bill Hepler

I usually don't comment unless I'm a repeat visitor, so this was my first and only visit as an "out of towner". Clearly a popular place, awesome decor of a classic building. Service a little overwhelmed and slow, but friendly: food was excellent; slightly pricey but that's to be expected in this area. Solid recommendation. Would certainly go again.

Kyla Jones

This was my third time here in the last 6 months. 1st time service was amazing, second time was typical, this last time was awful. Waitress was rude, never brought any bread while we waited. When we first arrived we walked upstairs to get seated and was told our table wasnt ready waited about 10 minutes while all the other families got seated immediately. Waitress never came back to refill any drinks either. Wont return because service was subpar for the price was paid.

I have always loved eating at this restaurant. But this time took me beyond love into a place of culinary bliss. I ordered my meal to go - blackened salmon and mashed potatoes. I have eaten at many a fine restaurant, but this is first time I was offered a choice in how my blackened salmon was cooked. So playing it conservatively, I requested medium well. My meal came out pretty quickly. I even asked for extra rolls (I enjoy their bread) and received it. When I got home and took a bite of my meal, it was delectable. The salmon was cooked to perfection. I now know I must ask for it this way at every restaurant. I just hope each salmon serving will be as scrumptious as this one was. The ambiance is wonderful. Just know that if you choose to go on the weekend, you may have quite the wait. Making an appointment might be the best buffer. But however you go, be prepared for a stuffed stomach and a satiated smile across your face. I wanted to photograph this meal, but I was too busy eating it down to stop for a photo Op. Just know it looked great and tasted sublime.

Angela Montoya

OMG! This was an excellent choice. We're traveling from Texas and needed a good spot. The food was exquisite, with the perfect portion. And a great service as well. Definitely recommend it.

Roy Horton

Food, service, atmosphere...top marks for all. My server Luluti (sp) was attentive, helpful, good sense of humor and excellent at her job. I have been coming here since the 1980s I think...great to be here again!

Eric Redlus

All my friends had spoken about how great this place was but my wife and I were disappointed by everything from the food, service, and ambiance. Overrated and overpriced.

Matt C

Good food. But, it's the same as all the other Great American places - the menus never change, and theyre mostly the same from location to location. The service and consistently good food are a huge positive though. I'd like to give then 4.5 stars, but since that's not an option, I'll round up to 5.

Sam Geremia

I've never had a bad dish here, not once. I love their calamari, shrimp appetizer, lobster soup, salmon, the steak is delicious. I eat here frequently and occasionally a meal might be off a little-steak maybe a little fatty, but nothing big. The bartenders and waitstaff are great, very friendly and helpful. They really seem to help each other out. I will say I had one meal, a crab cake that was delicious as usual with a side of applesauce serve in a store bought plastic container-at least put it in a bowl. Give me the illusion it didn't come from Costco lol! Other than that top notch and I'm looking forward to my next meal there!

Sorina Aquinde Calero

LOVE this place. One of my favorite Great American Restaurants. I LOVE their fried oysters. They are SO delicious. The texmex eggrolls are really good too!!! I always come here for a few orders of fried oysters. I wish they could just come out with a larger dish of fried oysters!!!!!!

Evelyn R Morales

I ordered take out, don't get me wrong the food is great but the customer service not so much. Hostess was sweet, I went to the bar to get my drink and they saw me there and didn't acknowledge me nor let me know they would be with me in a sec. Then the sweet girl that was busy and hadn't seen me acknowledge me and helped me out. It was an oh okay experience.

Cynthia's natural Locs and more Norwood

Nice romantic place for you and your date or spouse. The whole family can enjoy the great place and the food. No long wait either

I was happy with everything about Mike's American. The food, the service, and the decor we're all superior, but the best part was that I was not paying! Oh yeah. And the apple pecan pie thing. Don't miss that.

Yolanda Washington

A menu that NEVER fails! The roast chicken- positively amazing. The grilled pork chop - no words to describe. That corn salsa - they should sell it. To top it off, the bread pudding.....well....scrumdiliumpchias!

Alonzo Brennan

They offer an awesome range of fresh food. I enjoy eating here. Staff members are always welcoming, rates are reasonable and the place is always well organised.

Fortina Goins

Exceptional food and even better service. I'm NEVER disappointed at Mike's. The only problem is the parking. It's always so crowded that you have to get there early to find parking. Recommend you make reservations if you don't want a long wait. It's truly worth the wait though.

Cheryl Lovelace

Great food and atmosphere. Even though it was very crowded, the food came in a reasonable amount of time for the party of 7 I was in. Birthday celebration for my sister.

We absolutely LOVED this place. It was awesome to be able to make a reservation online for a specific time! Unlike other places where you just get moved to the top of the list. The food was GREAT. The fillet mignon melted right in my mouth (medium). The prime rib was excellent. Not to mention the place was beautiful. The service was great also. *Only complaint is the parking. The lot is so tight, people don't know how to drive, I would recommend taking them up on the additional parking at the shopping center and walk across the street. Took us 20 minutes to get out of the parking lot because people are stupid and the lot was too tight.

Christopher Molinaro

Love Mikes!! The atmosphere is great, beautifully decorated and I love all the stars hanging from the ceiling. The drunken ribeye is so good.

Donna Johnson

Well prepared, tasty food. We started with the egg rolls and the artichoke, spinach dip. A good selection of starters. Enough to share and to pass the time away. The restaurant stays busy, so expect a bit of a wait between courses. The pecan crusted trout was a treat. Everyone in my group raved about their selection - grilled smoked salmon and the roasted chicken. Our waiter was attentive and kept our beverages topped up. Mike's never disappoints. Always a great dining experience. Walk-in diners are usually accommodated depending on the time of the day, but reservation is reccommended.

Anithea M

The best place to eat! The service is phenomenal! I'm from out of town and love this place everytime I travel up this way! No bad reviews here!!!!! Excellent at everything!

Greg Slonim

In my opinion, this is the only restaurant in Springfield which delivers consistently good food. Their grilled smoked salmon is outstanding. Their baby-back ribs are great. Their half chicken is truly spot-on. I live in Europe, therefore I am pretty spoiled when it comes to good food, however, I’ve always enjoyed coming to Mike’s for excellent quality, consistency, and great service. Beware of their portion sizes, they are fairly large.

blakeseibold

Excellent service! Excellent food! Perfect atmosphere! Brought our year and a half old..super comfortable and we'll be back!

Brittney Fernandez

Great customer service! The staff is super friendly every time I’ve dined at Mike’s! The food is excellent, always served fresh, with generous portion sizes. A range of menu options available, so there’s usually something for everyone!

Lorinda Ravo

Went for a family birthday dinner, and the food was excellent, service also very good. My filet was well prepared, just as ordered, and the mashed potatoes also good. I had the bread pudding for dessert-I highly recommend it. The only reason for 4 stars is that it is VERY loud. If you want a quiet, intimate dinner, I'd steer clear. But if you don't mind the noise, you'll enjoy your dinner.

Dwaine Parson

Awesome and lively ambience. Decor is super nice and really interesting. Staff were all very friendly and efficient. We all had 3 different salads and enjoyed every bite. Bottom line? GO THERE!

Rachel Hamby

Loved it!! The food was terrific & the staff over & above - thank you!

Jerry Miranda

Had a fantastic dinner at Mike's. The service and food was simply the best. Definitely going back. Everyone was so nice and considerate.

Ashley Deaton

Have eaten here several times and am always happy with the food and service. They take their gluten free menu very seriously and had tons of delicious options. The free bread is amazing as well and I love the pineapple mojito.

Joshua Leake

A long time favorite in the area. This is a great location for a sit down meal, a special occasion, or just an indulgence. There is usually a wait, and tables are rarely empty for long, so try the call ahead seating. The menu as a whole does not disappoint, but their prime rib is the best I can find in the area. Well worth the cost and time.

Bob Brotzman

A great menu, well executed. Despite being very popular and busy, service was good, and genuinely friendly. My southwest chicken salad was excellent, and my wife and friends chose beef which, based on the samples they shared, was also delicious. There is a small, but adequate children's menu. Very respectable wine list. I'll go back!

Derrick Thomas

Great food, fast service, second time dining here. No disappoinment at all. Looking forward to my next visit

Best Steak and Salad Around We made reservations online through Google Maps for 5:30 and am glad we did. Parking was already a challenge even as early as we eat, but on our second loop we found a spot. We were greeted with a smile and seated immediately. Our waiter came quickly for our drink orders and to present today's specials. We didn't wait long before our calamari appetizer arrived, and I was impressed by its enderness and the crispness of the breading. And the sauce was excellent. The salads were above expectations. The pine nuts and dried cranberries accentuated the sweet dressing. I had the hanger steak while my wife had the filet, both medium rare. Both cuts of meat were tender and flavorful, and cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the bold flavor of the hanger, and its unique texture. I could cut it with my fork. The restaurant is always busy and was a little loud for my comfort, but the food made it worth it. We sat on the first floor today and it seemed noisier than when we were seated on the second floor on our last visit. I reccomend dining early, making reservations and asking to be seated on the second floor if you want a quiet, romantic meal. If you're bringing kids or have a boisterous group, please stay on the main floor.

Andras M Marton

The food was great, as it usually is; however, we noticed very slow service and few checks on us for refills, etc., which was disappointing. Our friends from out of town took notice of the slow service as well; additionally, our friend did not get the meal he ordered, and despite claiming they would take the meal off the bill, our friends had to remind them. We are hopeful our next visit is better -- and cooler as it was very warm in the restaurant as well. All of these distractions regrettably influenced our experience and the good food.

Steve Z

Delicious food. We loved everything we ordered. Service was pleasant even as we sat there for another 45 minutes after we paid. First time there and certainly won't be our last.

seneca linder

Most amazing eating experience I ever had!! Waitress staff was off the charts!! Drunken Ribeye was

Latrivia Williams

Great food. I had the crab cake and 7oz Filet Mignon with a side of mushrooms and garlic mash potatoes. The crab cake and potatoes were delicious. My filet was cooked a little more than what I prefer, but was corrected immediately. Unfortunately, by the time I received the new filet, I was too full to eat it. I did taste a small piece and it was delicious. Next time, I won't drink as many Arnold Palmers so I can actually eat my meal. I will definitely return and would definitely recommend this place.

Tre C

Started off as a great night appetizers came out on time drinks were made okay. But then upon receiving one of the main entrees found metal in the steak. The manager simply comped one drink and sent us on our way. Not the best or most satisfying way to end the night L

Diana Porter

Good was so good.. chicken roasted to perfection, key lime pie was probably some of the best I've eaten..

DanTina Sawyer

We enjoy the brick warehouse setting. Food and service (by Christian) was excellent. We'll done, Mike's.

Never had a bad meal in this place. Drinks are awesome. Great place to celebrate a special occasion or for date night.

Megan Hendela

Great decor and atmosphere. Amazing food and loved the cocktail selection. Great attentive service as well.

Stephanie Joyce

There's something for everyone at Mike's American. Full service bar, wine list, kids menu, steak, seafood, salads, sandwiches and starters. The place looks great, staff is friendly and your menu selections are beautifully prepared and served. You wont be sorry. Ask for extra rolls.

Kristina Kidd

The food, atmosphere and our server were great! Definitely worth every penny. We will definitely be back.

Melanie Barnes

Always good! Yes there is a wait (on any given day) if you don't call ahead and make reservations. But it is well worth the wait!!!! This kitchen knows how to cook a steak tou hear me. It's always cooked perfectly and did I mention the crab cakes are huge and nothing but crab meat! Omg you must try it if you haven't, I promise you'll be hooked like everyone else!

Eugenia Mireya Asencio-Angibeau

Great service excellent food. Horrible parking

Celeste Morton

Was given the wrong order. Waiter stopped me as I was leaving. Exchanged carryout bag and removed some items. When I got home, I had no rolls as requested. Had fries that I did not order. Paid by credit card. Didn't recall receiving card after payment. Request waiter to ck for card. Credit card was on floor at bar. Service not good this time. Usually, very good. Celeste

Cory Carter

Food was great and service was quick. Price a bit higher than I prefer but I think the food was worth it.

Jon F

Mike's American measures up to the high standards set by other Great American Restaurants in the Northern Virginia Area. The wait staff are welcoming and helpful. Everything I've ever ordered at Mike's has been high quality and worth getting again. The brick and wood interior has a nice homey tavern feel to it. The only minor negatives are that parking can be difficult during peak hours and the bathrooms are all the way on the bottom floor. This is a great spot for any occasion. Be sure to make a reservation.

Bella Bella

My family and I visited on the 22nd of September to Farrell my son off to combat training for the military, Semper Fi, Hoora! The food was fantastic and the service was great

Chris Reese

This place lived up to the billing from all of my friends. Great food and excellent service will be back again soon.

Alicyn Drew

It's good food, great service. This location has horrible parking. We were surprised this time that the hangar steal was tough, it's usually not. However the rest of them meal was great

theXalter Speaks

I loved it! As always great service and great food. Monterey was the BEST waitress. When I come back I want to sit in her section.

Yolanda Morgan

Rodney Hall

Timberly Harrington

My first time eating here. We had lunch after my nephew's graduation. The food was delicious and the service was great! Our waitress made sure we wanted for nothing! The place was packed by they treated everyone like they mattered! Definitely recommend!

Jaema Puentes

Have never had a bad meal here. Spacious, good service and great food. Park across the street at dinner time. Dont let the packed parking scare you, plenty of room inside.

Richard Batista

Excellent food and beverage. Staff was very nice and professional

Arnold

One of the better restaurants in Springfield when it comes to American food. Always consistent. My go to are the crab cakes and rib eye.

Frederick McGrath

We visited Mike's with two 94 year old grandparents to celebrate a birthday. Unfortunately there was an issue with the timing of the food. However, the manager Ashley went way above and beyond in correcting the situation. Truly remarkable management and would very highly recommend this place.
