Mickey & Mooch-South Charlotte, located in the Arboretum 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!

Great service. Good food. Fair pricing. Very much needs updating. Atmosphere is old and dated.

I was underwhelmed. Our server was outstanding, the food was hot and tasty. Crab cakes were great. However, it Took them two tries to get my steak (almost) right. Presentation was not appealing. Shareable sides came with no serving spoon. Plastic table covers. Down-market experience at up-market prices.

We have used to love this restaurant, but haven’t been in years. The food was pretty good, but unfortunately, the place is really showing it’s age. They really need to update the place to compete with all the other new restaurants in town...or go lower price point.

The food is very average in taste, which would be ok except that the prices are for outstanding food-- which is definitely not. Restaurant is dated in decor and really needs an update-- worn out booths. Our service was very average. We were there to celebrate Mother's Day but on the Saturday night before. The live music was so loud that you could not carry on a conversation at the table-- especially with my 80 year old mother in law who is already hard hearing. We were in the farthest room from the music and it was still that loud. I can't imagine how the people in the room where they were playing could bear it.

Food taste and quality was sub par. Steak was not cooked as ordered. Meat was not flavorful and having eaten at M&M for over 20 years, this was by far the worst meal I have ever had and will not return. Good luck becoming Burger King.

My only complaint was that food did not come out all at once. Drinks came sporadically. Main meal also came sporadically. One of our friends waited the longest to get his salad. Don’t know if this was the kitchens fault. We had two waiters that were very pleasant.

This was my 1st time and it's a nice friendly place to eat and socialize. Food was good but some of the drinks wasn't mixed correctly. My friends told me that wasn't normal since having been there several times before. There was entertainment which was a nice addition in the bar area. It even had room to dance if you wanted. I would return and give the bartender's a chance to redeem them selves. Food portions are plentiful, so be ready to eat.

Ambience and service were fine. Execution of the food was not done well. My pork chop was overdone. I requested well done but it was overcooked to the point it was dry. The Tilapia and crab were not seasoned at all. The collard greens were just okay. The ribs were seasoned and cooked well.

Due to your renovation, my husband and I were seated in the back room, “Best” seats ever at your Restaurant. We had a table for two with a view of the lovely pond and all the wildlife, both wild and human! The food was it’s usual excellence, wait staff very attentive. We enjoyed our experience immensely. Thank you!

Restaurant is dated and dark (unless you are seated by the large window).
The menu had some incomplete and odd food descriptions.
The grilled chicken (Hawaiian style) came with nothing else on the plate, not even a garnish. The sauce tasted like a cheap concoction of sugar and artificial flavors. It was tender. No one finished their meals, not even the shrimp. Hadn’t been in years. Won’t go back.

I had an issue a number of years back where my steak was way overcooked and the waitress argued with me. I had to get the manager to intervene and vowed I would never go back. Against my better judgement, I made reservations for this past weekend at the request of a family member. Once again, I ordered my steak "medium" which they state is "Hot Red Center", and it came out looking like the bottom of my shoe. Needless to say, I will not be eating there ever again, nor will I recommend it to anyone.

Very Nice Meal !
Jerome took very good care of us. My wife ordered the small filet. It was tasty and cooked perfectly.
I ordered their special, Soft Shell Crab with the recommended picante sauce. It was excellent.
It was a wonderful visit.

Food was bland and server was more occupied with tables drinking alcohol than she was with ours. Table behind us even had an issue with their food as well. Would not eat at this location again and based on the food I wouldn’t eat at any location if it is like this one.

We love Mickey and Mooch as a go to place for special occasions. While an upper end restaurant prices for appetizers and sides are not as expensive as other places and you get a lot of food for the money. One of the best Wedge Salads in the world.

Always count on Mickey and Mooch for consistently good food, great drinks and a fun evening. The only reason for "very good" for ambiance was due to the construction that closed the main dining room. While the music was great, two long time friends were there to catch up and it was a bit difficult to
have too much conversation...so we just decided to enjoy the entertainment!

Mickey & Mooch was a true surprise. It was suggested by our friends so we went, not expecting much. Boy were we pleasantly surprised. Our server was excellent! He was both personable and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was outstanding! Our steaks were as good as the more expensive steakhouses and the sides were delicious. It was our first visit but it won’t be our last!

This restaurant is very close to where we live, so we come here once every few months. The service is always excellent with very friendly waitstaff. The food is good. The steak is fine, but not at the same level as some of those well known steakhouses. The sides are also good. We haven’t had dessert there so I cannot comment. I will say that getting a burger at the bar is very good - they don’t serve them in the dining room for some reason.

The food was excellent. The place was crowded which slowed down service a bit and made the place very noisy. We had difficulty carrying on a conversation sitting across from each other. We lingered a bit over dessert so the place became quieter as it emptied out and we were able to have a conversation without yelling or repeating ourselves. We really like the place and have not had this issue in the past. We will definitely be going back. We will just be more aware of the noise level before we get seated. Definitely recommend this place. Steaks and the dessert are phenomenal.
