Basically the same menu, food is better though.
Impossible to get a seat on fri or sat.
I only lost 3k personally, but some were up near 40k from their superbowl pools
Scary,with that kind of numbers I would not want to be in some peoples (Mike's) shoes.

Since my original post I heard that the Health dept. may have been involved. Is this just a rumor, who knows? I hope not and the post from "sarah" has a different reason, all possible. Did the workers go with the partner who supposedly opened another place in Port Jeff? If so I may look for that place, at least the food may be the same. I could not find the name or phone number online. Can anyone verify the location? If not I guess for the food and price I will stick with J & R's Steakhouse, good food and prices just a different atmosphere.

Many rumors exist about how and why Mike's place collapsed. Only the owners might know what really happened. One piece of bad blood I heard, one of the employees had some unexpected medical expenses. A goup of patrons took a collection but the employee never got a cent. Something or someone was redirecting money in the end.

These rumors may or may not be true, but one previous post regarding possible cocaine use comes to mind. Drug abuse usually leads to that type of financial ruin and low down behavior as stealing from your own (sick)employee.

Thats sad about Mikes Place, but thank god for Grumpy Jacks! We LOVE that place, great drinks & food (better then Mike's) they even have the same head chef and most of the HOT staff! Satelite juke box and a good atmoshere. I recommend. It's on 28 Oakland Ave, Port Jefferson (across from Mather Hospital)

Found the place and tried it. It was good, the staff was better and more cordial not acting as if they were doing you a "favor" by serving you and taking your money. The food was very good even better so I would reserve judgement if it is the same chef or kitchen staff. Doesn't matter I guess. Good luck to them.

Could the people who are owed the pool money try to collect the money from the owner at Grumpy Jacks? I gather there were two owners (Mikes), which is the one responsible for taking the money??

Todays Newsday(feb4) did a full page story on Mikes and the alleged robbery. One owner registered a corvette in florida right after robbery, and made inconsistant statements to police. Wonder if these fellows would mind taking a polygraph test.

$150,000 was owed to the former patrons of Mike's and what happens? One of the owners opens a brand spanking new place and the other registers a corvette in Florida.
What a bunch of thieves.
