About: Mike’s Grill
Mike’s Grill hides stories in the seams of its flannel shirts. It buries bar fights in the smoldering ashes of its cigarettes and uncovers truths in the mischievous half-smiles of arthritic seniors who have held bar stools since the Kennedy days. It keeps hope locked in beer bottles, lotto numbers, and old friends.
– Short North Gazette
Mike’s is a dive bar with a lot of history. A welcome sight for locals looking for a drink without the frills or the fretting, it’s been a Short North staple for years, and isn’t going anytime soon.
