Mickey & Mooch Lake Norman, located in the Northcross Shopping Center, began with a deceptively simple premise: to create a casually elegant atmosphere where guests could escape to enjoy a fine meal at an exceptional price. Our steadfast dedication to this ideal is why both Mickey & Mooch locations continue to win awards from premier culinary publications like the Zagat Survey and Wine Spectator. Our menu offers a delicious variety of choices presented in abundant portions -- from tender steaks to fresh seafood, chicken and pasta. And for those who enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, we offer an extensive selection, from the house white to Opus One. Mickey & Mooch... great food, service, and value!

It was my wife’s birthday. When I made the reservations, I made note of that. The waiter, Matthew made no mention to my wife, that it was her birthday.

Mickey and Mooch is always great. Their wine pour is very generous and service is good too. Servings are generous and everything is tasty!

Mother’s Day Brunch.
The regular food was very good as usual and the service exceptional. Unfortunately, the new brunch special, a Crab Benedict was overdone. The wait staff noticed, took action quickly to replace and the manager comped the dish. The collars Sal crab dinner was fantastic and the sides were great. All in all a good experience, we will continue to recommend and return.

We typically love this place but seems like they have fallen off a bit with a 95 sanitation score and service was rough. We were seated and waited ten minutes before our server showed up. Luckily we already had drinks from the bar. I ordered a second glass of wine in fear it would take them another 30 to get back to us. The server dumped part of my first glass of Sauvignon Blanc into my second order of chardonnay before I could stop her. The poor thing freaked out when I told her they were different but I cannot recall any other place doing that. She was really sweet and was good once our order was placed though. In their defense it was busy but I expect with the price tag and how long they've been around that they can handle the high volume. I'm hoping for a bounce back on a place we call one of our favorites

I would not recommend Mickey and Mooch because the table and seat were nasty when we arrived. We could not sit down. The waiter seemed irritated because we asked him to clean the table and seats. For the price you pay at am establishment like this cleanliness should be the very last complaint. However, I ordered the crab cake and salmon. The crab cake was the best I have ever had. I would not go back because of the dirty seats and table. Especially since we drove an hour to get there.

We love this restaurant! Never ever had a bad meal there. Service is wonderful. The ambiance is nice, but the noise level can become very loud later in thee evening, especially if you’re sitting closer to the bar. My only complaint would be that the banquet seats dip, and are very ucomfortable-no lumbar support, you just seem to slide into them. My suggestion would be throw pillows to provide some back support for those seated in the banquets.

The food is always superior with large portions. I highly recommend the tilapia with crab or the salmon with crab cakes...you can’t go wrong! They have a plentiful wine list and yummy desserts. We were fortunate that a band was playing when we left so we got to listen to great music and dance a bit. Hope that group plays more frequently (Soul Solutions). Overall, we had a great night. Love this place!!!

I used to frequent this restaurant many years ago and was looking forward to a great meal. Unfortunately, that was not to be..

The restaurant atmosphere has changed a lot - noticeably quieter and less of a “buzz”. Decor looking tired.

Service OK - our waiter was friendly enough but we were disappointed on a number of occasions- appetiser not served (forgotten), drinks choice not available and other small things.

The food was pretty good - my steak was cooked as orders and tasted great.

Overall though, in terms of experience and value for money, there will be better places for certain- maybe the reason why the bookings are down. Shame as this used to be my favourite restaurant

Conveniently we got a reservation on open table 1hr after we made it in a Friday night. Most everyone ordered steaks and they were cooked to their satisfaction. A bit pricey and to noisy to have a romantic date but was fine for our group of 6.

Vacation travels from PA brought my wife and I to the Lake Norman area for an overnight stay. Did the same last year and ate dinner for the first time at M great food, service and overall experience. The menu had a wonderful choice of appetizers and entrees and the Seven layer Chocolate Cake for dessert was to die for!

Was a first visit and was really good. The staff are awesome and really make you feel like a guest. Cocktail menu is excellent and the drinks were perfection; best dark and stormy I have ever had. Was able to order appetizers and enjoy them while still deciding in the main course. Their steaks are really good, but we also had lamb and scallops; all were perfection as were the sides. Was unable to fit in a desert so will have to go back.

We were there for my wife’s birthday and I wanted a table on the left side of the building (the other side is way too bright for a nice meal and ambience), There were several booths open and no one in line and they told me it would be a 45 minute wait to get seated on that side. When I asked about the empty booths,I was told they were reserved for people with reservations. When I said “I have a reservation too”. and note there was no one waiting, the hostess told me that they hold tables for people who specifically request them, If that is the case, then what is the purpose of the reservation?
So given that we were already there and my wife was looking forward to the meal, we begrudgingly took a seat on the other side. Lots of noise and it is way too bright to eat there before dark.
The wait staff was very accommodating (outside of the hostess). I had the salmon and crab cake. The salmon was very good, the crab cake not so much. My wife had the filet and she told me it was very nice. We had their 7 layer chocolate cake for dessert ( we split a half slice) which was rich and decadent.
Stick to what they do best (steaks and chops) and stay out of the bright side (to the right as you enter) of the restaurant and you will do fine.
However I will think twice before going back for a special occasion.

Update: The restaurant called me to discuss my concerns, she did empathize with my frustration of the issue and made a note in my open table profile that any future visits it is noted that we prefer the club side of the restaurant and that it will be in my profile to hopefully get us a spot on the side we prefer. I found that level of concern (willing to call and discuss) a rarity and appreciate the concern they have for their diners.
