I thought the food at Mikey’s Grill was delicious! My only complaint was that the buttered potatoes were over-peppered. Next time I’ll ask them to go light on the pepper. My steak melted in my mouth.....very well prepared! Our server was efficient and friendly and the low lighting and low noise level made it the perfect place for a friend’s dinner. I didn’t order a dessert, but my friends did and they were oohing and ahhing. Oh and I almost forgot....the blue cheese dressing was outstanding! I will definitely come here again. More
