I've been coming to Mimi's for some time now and today not only was the service bad but after waiting for almost an hour for our meal, I find a piece of plastic in your salad.. I was so disappointed. I asked the manager to take my steak back.. I won't be coming back to Mimi's anytime soon

I will never go back

My wife and I went to mimi's after I got off of work yesterday morning. We arrived at 9am. We were seated quickly and waited about 10 minutes for our server. We placed our drink and food order and our drinks arrived promptly. My wife then noticed her glass was dirty, OK no big deal it happens and her drink was replaced. I ordered country fried steak and my wife ordered salmon or mahi. We both realized that at 9am our food may take longer than a breakfast item, but 9am is my 5pm. Ok so about 20 minutes later we got a new server for whatever reason. 20 minutes after that she came and said that they don't have mashed potates until after 11am. Why weren't we told tis when we ordered 40 minutes earlier? So my wife and I settled for salads as a compromise. 10 minutes after that our food arrived my wifes fish was stone cold and my country fried steak was meatloaf. Come on does country fried steak and meatloaf even sound the same? I think not. So my wife calls the server over and says ""my husband ordered country fried steak and he got meatloaf."" Ok here we go. The server point blank says ""he didn't order country fried steak he ordered meatloaf!"" We then asked to see the manager and after 10 more minutes he/she never showed up. So we left. I will never go back to this dump ever. Oh by the way if you get a booth look between the seat and the wall...disgusting!!!!

Never eat at Mimi's!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ordered the 12 oz top sirlion, there was nothing top or sirlion about it!!! After three very chewy pieces i was forced to put a piece into my napkin from my mouth it tasted soo bad. I have fed my lab better grade meat!!!
My buddy ordered the Market fish, which was Mahi Mahi with steamed veggies ( it was one veggie, broccolli, which looked suspicious). The fish was tasteless, no seasoning or spice, not even salt added nothing!!

Ohh yeah and they forgot our appitiezers too!!! The staff was a bunch of kids, only the waitstaff manager knew what she was doing there.

It was Cheap, $40, and i ordered a glass of wine, i guess that should tip you off.

If you are not hungry go to Mimi's for the ambiance, i really did like the design!!!
