In The Community

Chef Mike believes in giving back to the community and strives to make a positive difference to those in need, whether it's providing a Gift Certificate for a four course dinner as a fund raising auction item, running the grill for an organization's BBQ or serving up a home-style turkey dinner at Christmas.

Chef Mike proudly supports:
