This was our hangout in law school and the new management has actually classed the place up without losing that fun dive bar feel. A great place for live music, a burger, or just a quick drink.

Located near University of Missouri Kansas City, they have sports memorabilia from the school's sports teams. There is a place for a DJ but I was there at lunch, so I missed the true party scene this place is at night. Food was good. I had a burger. It was better than any of the fast food restaurants in town. They also have pool tables for those so inclined. The lady bartender was very friendly and gave good service.

I tihnk this place is not very good. The food was bad the day I went and service just stinks. Maybe they had a bad day or something not sure. But drinks are okay! Hopefully for who ever they have a good day at the bar!

mike's is very convenient for me and a lot of my friends. it's right across the street from rockhurst university, classes get over around2 or after labs at 5 or 6 and Mike's is a great place to sit down, relax, and unwind from the crapc chemistry classes. Drink specials are great, and burgers are delicious. The pool tables aren't ideal, but in good enough shape to play a few rounds.

This is a great dive! But the food is so so! The live music isn't bad. I would say this place is a great starter bar or if you want to get down and dirty. I would only go there to drink!

Mike's is Mike's, thank God!! You can see the kitchen and it looks clean to me. The bathroom (mens) seems pretty clean too, compared to some other popular joints in town. Oh my God.... It's on Troost! Hold on.... Westport and the Plaza are safer....Please! Anyway check it out for yourself instead of relying on these important reviews!

I had soooo much fun at Mike's last night. I've been there a few times but I'm going to make it my new hang out. Cheap drinks, great food and the bartenders rock!!! Chicks aren't bad to look at either.

I was at Mike's the other day, just hang'n with four friends (students like me). In walks TWO of my prime Profs. After an hour of acting like we didn't see each other, we ended up swapping ideas, stories and beers! This place is the first place I've ever rated. I feel slutty, but good! Mike's rocks!

I went to UMKC and I think they need to find a new hang out! The prices for the drinks are not bad. The food was a little below par for me. Never statyed there long enough to hear live music. Don't even start me on those nasty bathrooms.

I just finshed UMKC and have been to Mikes many times. I have never found it a good place too eat or listen to music. If you want to drink it is a good place. I would start there and then go some where else. I too do not think the place is very clean!

This place rocks, I came in from Wichita to check out a band and the owners were so nice and I was surprised at how clean the place was. The burgers are the best and the service was great. Thanks Mike

Mike's is a great little tavern. It's clean, friendly and great food. I recently checked out their web site and it's really cool. Mikestavernonline.com. I think the reviewer who said it is dirty is crazy. Check it out for yourself

Went to Mikes the food is so so at best! The place could use a new menu or a better cook. Not sure which but it needs something. Maybe I'm too old for this place I'm not sure. But the food is okay at best!

Pros: Nice people

.

Overall, Mike's is a great place to go to anytime of the day, whether its for a Thursday night out, a refreshing beer after an afternoon exam or a rough day at work, or an inexpensive lunch. On a side note, its the unofficial Rockhurst bar rather than a UMKC bar, but of course, Rockhurst isn't going to be mentioned.

Pros: Good atmosphere, Friendly, College Crowd

Cons: , Bad area 1 block east, College Crowd

Good beer selectoin, decent bar food, interesting crowd. My buddy the trumpeter lives within 2 blocks to avoid DUIs. Fun hangout for many types of folks.

The Scene
UMKC students and alumni congregate at this concrete dive. There's a wooden bar or red vinyl-covered booths. Johns Belushi and Lennon and a giant moose head preside over the crowd from red-and-black walls. Two…
