Best kept secret in Birmingham!
Definitely one of our new favorite restaurants. We love the fact that it is not downtown, easy to get to and everyone is so friendly! The food is delicious! The staff is very knowledgable about the food and wine! Even though the restaurant is in a strip mall, it doesn't feel that way once you walk in the door! Reservations are a must, especially on Thursday, Friday and Saturday!

Our favorite restaurant
Very friendly place with very good food. Mikey, the chef and co-owner, has several Louisiana inspired dishes that are quite good, and I would quickly recommend any dish on the menu (I've tried them all), though I do have my favorites. Prices are moderately high, but represent good value considering the quality of food offerings. Melissa, the other half of ownership, oversees a staff which is very friendly and attentive, and they make a killer Martini! Their rolls are excellent, and border on habit-forming. Although we go mostly at night, one should note that it is a good place for lunch as well, and that the lunch menu is available at night for the more modest appetites.

Packed out and food came out
Packed out and food came out of kitchen slowly but this allowed time for drinks and conversation. Very enjoyable and very good service.

Good Food, great staff
Good food, well prepared, helpful staff, generous (if pricy) drinks. Highly recommend the Surf and Swamp for those who like something different from the ordinary.

We have dined at Mikey's several times, and have never been disappointed. We especially like the fact that they offer lunch menu items even at dinner time - sometimes are appetites are smaller than other times. Service is always good, staff is super friendly, and the food is fabulous.

Delicious Food, Fair Prices
I am so happy to have found Mikey's. Everyone at my table of 5 ordered a different plate and we were each very pleased with our selections. My two favorites are chicken saltimboca and crab cakes. My husband had macadamia encrusted snapper and wished there was more on the plate to eat. Perhaps some broccoli or a veggie would have helped to fill out the plate and satisfy his appetite.

Another good meal at Mikey's
We always enjoy Mikey's Grill, specializing in seafood, though they have something for everyone. They're happy to oblige with special requests based on your diet (no sugar or wheat in mine).

Great dining experiance
The food and service was exceptional. I had the filet with grilled shrimp and my wife had the filet and crab cakes. She cannot say enough good things about the crab cakes. The filets were cooked to perfection. Eric was our server and did an excellent job.

While known for their crabcakes, I decided to try something else and got the grouper, which was oustanding. The sauce was incredible and it was a very generous serving! My husband got the seafood platter and said it was great!!

I was there with a group of old friends who don't see each other very often. Our waiter, Chris was great! He allowed us to talk and visit but checked on us periodically-- he never made us feel rushed and he was willing to accomodate all of our special requests. The food was excellent, service was excellent and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience! We will be back!

Everything we have tried so far is delicious. Our goal is to try everything. We have taken two different couples and they are absolutely blown away.

As frequent customers we chose Mikey's to entertain out-of-town friends. Specifically chose Chris for his outstanding service. Everyone loved the food and we enjoyed a great time. Top notch place.

My favorite local restaurant
We really like Mikey's when a friend moved back to the area from Louisiana we decided to take him to Mikey's for dinner. He is very particular and a good cook, and as you'd expect is pretty savvy re: Cajun and Creole cooking and their influences. He was very happy with his meal, as we have always been. And the staff are wonderful...really charming and personable. The food is just great.

Celebrating time together
This past Friday my daughter and I had a wonderful dinner at Mikey's Grill. Just celebrating time together. We started out our dinner with Alligator bites and fried crab claws. They both were outstanding, but the crab claws practically melted in my mouth! Wonderful!!! I had the blackened talapia, which was probably the best I've had in a long time, seasoned just right. My daughter ordered the hamburger, which she said was "almost as good as the ones I make at home", but I tasted it and believe me, it was much better. We had the Godiva chocolate cheescake for dessert. It was absolutely fabulous! Our waiter was attentive, professional, and I cannot find anything to say but thank you Mikey's for a wonderful night out. We'll be back.

The menu is very diverse yet simple. There were a few specials not listed and we ended up with those. The crawfish chowder was outstanding. The crabcakes were meaty and rich. The grouper with sauteed crab claws and grilled shrimp with crawfish gravy was so tasty and prepared perfectly. Wonderful service and a grat evening.
