Mike & C's in PTC

I know exactly what you all are talking about. Both Mike & C's restaurants have gone dramatically down hill. The blog that states that the owner was not the same at Shadows at the end is TOTALLY false. Mike owned it, sold it yes, but took back ownership and he was the owner towards the end of Shadows. I know for a fact that Mike & C's has received failing health inspections yet for some reason those inspections have yet to be posted on the Fayette site. The Fayetteville location has just recently changed hands but still maintains the Mike & C's franchise name. It all falls to the same person in charge who is taking a good concept to the dumps. Won't eat there again and I know alot of others doing the same. Needs a good cleaning and new ownership.

Mrs. L

Mike & C's compared to Stevi B's in Fayetteville is like eating at a gourmet restaurant! I will NEVER go to Stevi B's again. Their bathrooms are nasty stinky filthy! If you place an order.....forget it, they erase the order from the pad before it's even put in the oven. The manager is never there when WE have visited and it's nothing more than teen-agers running the show. No variety on the bars. It's always the same old thing! I've even seen kids walk in, sit down at a table without going to the cashier to purchase the buffet, then they get up from the table, go over pick up a plate and begin helping themselves. And people think the food increases are bad due to fuel costs? Wait til Stevi B's gets smart enough to take a look at what is walking in and literally STEALING food from the buffet bar. Doesn't pay to give the corporate HQ a heads up on it. They just think I was a disgruntled customer because I didn't get my pizza order. Guess what, Stevi B's!!! I'm a MYSTERY SHOPPER!!!

What better way to trash an establishment than to post things such as was in the Matthew posts. Perhaps someone who knows Mike and Kathy should make them aware of what is being blogged. If it truly is their son I would think they would want to have a good conversation with him regarding his remarks. I, personally, have not had a bad experience there. Sometimes the food is a little slow coming out but that has to be expected at a busy place. As for being clean, I owned a restaurant for years and believe me when you stay busy all day it is hard to do very much but bus your tables and try to keep the floors as clean as possible until closing time. Then you open for breakfast and it starts all over again. It is not easy believe me. Before turnig against the restaurant, let's give them the opportunity to say if indeed it is the son doing the posting.

My wife and I frequent most of the Peachtree City restaurants and have a much different experience than "Karma"! We find Mike and his wife Kathy both to be warm and friendly owners. The food is always good and reasonably priced; service is always prompt and courteous. We find that the conditions in the restaurant to be no different than any others around town. The last health inspection is posted at the door and was 91/A. To the best of my knowledge Mike is no longer associated with the store in Fayetteville. I think that if "Karma" can do a better job managing a restaurant then we would like the chance to see for ourselves. Thank you, Bill

Cooks never have known how to manage! All think they do however and fail usually.

How do we get so many untrue stories on such as this?

Apparently the help at restaurants will not clean things like the floor, under tables, seats, windows, shelves, lights, doors, outside, or anything except table tops half-heartedly!

I always see the owner doing those things---what he has time to do!

If you are referring to Mike & C's, I can assure you that the owner is rarely there. It is his responsibility as an owner to make sure his restaurant is clean. Maybe he needs to be more selective in who he hires if he can't get them to clean. As for cooks as managers, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that a cook is not a manager. Once again, the owner makes those decisions to put a cook in that position. Maybe these decisions by Mike of Mike & C's is why his restaurant is going to the dumps and so many people are no longer going to it.

By the way, to all of you who complained about the night managers at Mike & C's, most of the time, it is the owner's son who is the manager. You can usually find most of the employees out back smoking during hours in case you are looking for your server. Ask the owner to pull the camera tapes -- oops, I forgot, the "managers" and the employees shut them off at night. Nice way to run a eating establishment.

Matt Healy shame on you. I am your aunt and you should not be writing that kind of material about your customers. They are who keeps your Dad's business alive. Maybe you should be taught how to better handle criticism. Some of these people have a point. After all, most people don't know the truth about how Mike Healy runs his business. You should not criticize Beef o' Brady's seeing that your Dad, after working there, copied their entire concept when he openened Mike & C's. Also, your Dad does need to learn how to pay his employees correctly after being fined alot of money by the Department of Labor. He also has several illegals working in his kitchen and let us not forget that when the Fayetteville store was in his hands, they received a failing health inspection of which I have a copy with his name. So let's look at these people's comments as a way to help your Dad's establishment work on their most needed areas.

For pretending to be a family member, or if you are a family member, for posting such a blog. I sure wouldn't want you in my family. First of all, Mike & C's was around a long time before Beef O'Brady's came on the scene and where is the concept that was stolen by MIke & C's from Beef O' Brady? Mike & C's was a very popular breakfast place quite some time ago. Regarding the health report, where would you get the original signed health report unless you stole it. You sound more like a disgruntled former employee than anything. We have no way of knowing if either you or Matthew are real on this site. only you and the newspaper would know for sure. If you are doing this out of spite it is a malicious thing to do. You are messing with someone's living. Shame on you.

First of all, I am not the family member throwing out profanity on here. I was telling them shame on them for that kind of language. Second of all, You don't know how Mike & C's started if you think that Beef 0' Brady's opened after it. Mike Healy worked at Beef 0 Brady's and told the owner he wanted to open one. Then behind his back took the entire concept minus the breakfast and started Mike & C's. Next, all you have to do is call Fayette County and I asked them to send me a copy of the health inspection. They never posted it on their site but you can request a copy. Steal it from where?? Get a clue and learn your facts. I know my facts.

I don't know what is going on here, but this isn't going to be good for buisness at all.

Illegals working in the kitchen? This looks like a wild vendetta by 2 or 3 people.

To come on here and say these things. I can't believe that someone who actually claims to be the owners Son would type such a slashing article about his customers. I hope you are a liar and are not the owners Son, as I'm not sure anyone as ignorant as you has any business running a restaurant.

I don't think I need to say more about the type of employees at this establishment. Your blog says it all and it looks like quite a few other customers feel the same.

Count me in as a former Mike and C's customer. I know Matthew doesn't give a {{{{EDITED}}}}

Wow. I have not had positive service experiments at any Mike & C's restaurant, but still went there (just reflect the poor service in my tip).

I did finally decide to quit going to the F'ville location, the service was so consistently bad.

However, until today, I would still have gone to the PTC location. No longer.

I actually enjoy Beef O'Brady's very much, so if y'all are looking for a more pleasant experience, give them a try! I've had poor service there ONCE, and the manager was sincerely apologetic. And I haven't seen that server since... I wasn't the only one who complained. Lunch and Dinner... both great experiences. Haven't tried the breakfast only because I don't go out ANYWHERE for breakfast, not being a morning person. Smiling

Wait a minute, this Matthew person might not be the manager. Could be somebody who has a grudge against Mike & C's.

Eight of us had dinner at the Fayetteville location a little over a week ago. The food was delicious, and the service was great.
