this a pretty friendly nieghborhood bar, with very decent bar food, if you're looking to eat something on the go. The people are very friendly, and you will find a diverse crowd there. but the draw too this place is the karaoke. Which is held every weds,fri, and sat nights. And on those nites you will find some interesting folks, such as tequila don, the crypt keeper, mama kay, and doc (who runs the show with his wife christy). But my personal favorite (whom I just love to hear sing billy idol's rebel yell) a brother they call SUICIDE KEN the koolest,whitest black guy i have ever met....Oh! and he's very cute too! this place is great if you just want to kick back and have some fun you'll find it here at the victory lap.

I stopped by this past week and noticed a couple of new people working and the bar was dead. I really hope things are not going to change. I really like my local spot and the regulars. NOTE: The regular bartenders, old manager, food, beer, and regulars are awesome! REGARDING past review: I was there that night, you should learn to keep your DRUNK boyfriend in check. The Stanley Cup was on and all of us were watching the game. He was so drunk and REFUSED to leave AFTER he started kicking the door in....that is why the cops got called on him and that is why he was thrown out. Get your facts straight.
I have to say that I have only been to Mikes 3 times! Each time I went I never felt like a stranger. The patrons, the bar maid all made me feel welcome! The bar is a small place but has a really nice outside deck. Everyone seems really friendly. On one occasion I asked to buy some pretzels and the bar maid gave me a bowl full for free. Anyone looking to go get a drink and not have to deal with a crowded bar thats too loud. Check out Mikes. It always seems to have a good croud of people in there and It dosen't seem like a place where you got to worry about sutpid people fighting! I'll definately go back!
