“A local's secret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

Visitors to our city rarely find Mity Nice. It's on the mezzanine level of the Water Tower mall; hidden within the food court. When you enter the cue, tell the gatekeeper that you're going to Mity Nice, and they will give you paper slips rather than the usual charge cards that you would use at the various food court stations.
Mity Nice is a sit-down, table-service restaurant. Service is excellent, food consistently good, and prices a bargain. We live two blocks away and eat there at least twice a month. We usually recognize almost everyone there, because only the locals know about it.
I recommend the Veggie Burger and Sweet Potato Fries, or the Fish and Chips. But everything is good.
Make a reservation, or you will need to wait for one of the comfortable booths or tables.

“Not your typical food court”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Hidden gem of a restaurant on the mezzanine level of water tower. Highly recommend the burgers. Cooked exactly as ordered. Friendly and attentive servers, comfortable seating in a relaxing atmosphere. Try the Sprecher's cream soda!

“Mity Nice is Mity Perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We first discovered this after a trip with (tired) grandkids to American Girl and Lego's. Perfect, tucked away in Water Tower Place. Lettuce Entertain You, so you can't go wrong with their offerings and ambience. I seem to end up here during shopping seasons, and you can book on opentable.

“For hungry shoppers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

Among the whole food court in the water tower mall, this was the only real restaurant. A place to be served, not to self tray care. Comfort food with a blaze is the promise and that's want you get. Excellent for hungry shoppers, specially in wintertime.
