I'll be honest. I was a little anxious on walking into this place. It looks like it's seen better days. The waitress confirmed that the building has been there since the 1800s, and the bar was put into place right after Prohibition was lifted. It was pretty dark in there, and there's no non-smoking section. But on looking more closely, you can see that though the place is run down, it's pretty clean, even in the men's room. The service was excellent, and friendly, even though she thought we were foreign (we're not really sure why, probably just because we weren't dressed like the usual blue-collar clientele). The Reubens came out on real platters with metal utensils, but we still had plastic cups with straws. Potato chips and a pickle spear were included: the chips were of the ridged variety, and pretty decent, but the pickle was soggy and not good at all. The sandwich itself was of good size, nicely toasted, and had a good amount of meat and cheese and dressing. I couldn't taste the kraut at all, and the rye flavor was pretty mild, but it was a very good sandwich for the price. I also had a slice of key lime pie, and with water to drink my entire cost was $6.50 (including tip). And I was stuffed. If you're not put off by the atmosphere and don't care about your pickle, Mike's is a good place for a Reuben. I'd pick it over the Adam's Mark any day.
