Mike and Norma Shelow opened Mike’s at Venetia in 1989 in Downtown Miami, an area begging for a friendly, convenient lunch spot that wouldn’t break the bank. With a background in baking, Mike and his brother jumped on the opportunity to open a restaurant. The core values established in those early years still ring true today: family first, tradition and home-cooking at a home cost.
After almost 30 years of business, Mike’s is still considered Miami’s best kept secret: a home away from home for locals and travelers alike. The culture is one of a kind, with a unique and familiar atmosphere that welcomes guests from all walks of life. With a massive bar, 20+ HD TV’s for sports fans, and food & beverage specials that value the customer first, the Shelow’s have honored their commitment to clientele.
