Mike & Jimmy's Chophouse closes

I was very sorry to see this casual steakhouse concept restaurant close its doors. It was opened by Jim Gearhardt and Michael Cunha of Limestone restaurant in Louisville.

I dined at M&J's several times, but it never quite hit its stride during my visits. Either there were quirky service lapses like being left to sit at the table for more than 30 minutes after being seated, to servers being brusque and surly when taking orders. Then, on other occassions service was spot on, while the food was a bit off. The macaroni and cheese side dish was really a miss both times I tried it. The place very much had the feel of a chain, and it was apparent that these guys were attempting to build a concept to market as a franchise.

I am sorry that it didn't work out for them. I hope they will try something else in this part of the state. We could certainly use a Limestone II.
