Is it just me, or am I wrong in assuming whoever owns "Mike's" keeps this post alive for free advertising ?

Fine with me if he or she does - smart, cheap, and probably effective.

But, I gotta admit in find it difficult to believe that this is an issue of sufficient magnitude to cause people to get all worked up.

Just wondering

Only YOU would think such a thing. You obviously do not know Mike. He wouldn't waste his time on TOPIX.

The people who bash Mike's are simply trying to cause problems for the business. Won't ever happen in this town.

Mike doesn't need TOPIX advertisement or any ads. Trust me. The parking lot of his restaurant is full every single day for lunch and dinner. The food is good and a local favorite. There are ugly people in town who have issues with some of the girls who work for Mike and with Mike. The girls are too busy to stand around five feet from anyone's table chatting! Besides, Mike's employees have worked for him for a long time. In this town that is unusual to see the same help year after year.

In fact, I'm going there NOW for fried oysters.

I think you are correct.
Have been to this establishment and it awful food.
Don't believe some of Mikes patrons have ever had fresh seafood.

I will say this, my kids took me to red lobster for mothers day and i would of rather had Mikes anyday. Mikes is fresh, excellent portions, reasonably priced, and just damn GOOD. I was shocked at the little portions at red lobster and the taste was far from good. Never again. Mikes has my business from now on. Spending time with my grown kids was great, Red lobster yuck!!!

The iceberg lettuce and all of us pink shrimpies have missed you.
IF you ever come back why not talk to our boss about this instead of writing it on topix?

Okay, the line is huge and we've gotta get on someone's plate.

Please, don't get mad.

Enjoy those fine oysters.

Standing or sitting, I bet they are delicious. I don't like oysters so others will await your timely report.

All I said was that
- unless your life is completely devoid of challenges;
you have no worthwhile charities to assist;
no children or parents making demands on your time;
no requirement at work to maintain or improve productivity; and
no personal development goals to which you strive;

It has proven inconceivable to all to whom I have shown this thread, that anyone is worried about a subject so obviously unimportant.

That is why I suggest it appears to be simply free advertising.

But, maybe I'm wrong.

OK...SO!!! First off I am not Mike's parent or any relative whatsoever but I did go back for another try on the salad and this time tried the Salmon and was very pleased (eating crow here!) There was some romaine in the salad first time I have seen it and the Salmon was cooked just like I ask...so maybe will try it again for a second time before I will quite reading this Mike Topix that is going to seed...

As I read your post, I can't even imagine how horrible your experience must have been. What is even worse is that a person or persons forced you to eat there, then, forced you to stand in line for 25 minutes. From your description, it appears that with the long lines and all, there are a lot of people who don't mind the lines nor, do they mind having someone's butt hanging over their swordfish special. I seriously doubt that you can be pleasd no matter where you are forced to dine.
I bet you voted for Obama.....

Mike's sucks. Bad service, terrible food. Plain and simple. Don't go there if you don't like it. Go if you do.

Well. We actually had to call today. After it happened again, I called the owner. My waitress (name tag said Bonnie) was high or under the influence of SOMETHING. She will be getting drug tested asap. You cannot come to work high and mess up your customers order and be rude and get away with it. I will pray for Mike's seafood! God bless!

LMBO. Mike won't drug test his employees.
You are a pain in the ass. Don't go there if you don't like it and have problems. You'll be one less person in that LONG line that nearly reaches the parking lot. I think you are a shit-disturber who has issues with Bonnie. I'll mention this to Mike and tell him about your whining.
