    Mikey's represents great value. The food is always good and not overpriced. We like to bring our own bottle of wine, and they have a modest corkage fee of $15. Also, their bar prices are very reasonable. We have become regulars.

    This was some of the worst food I’ve ever had. The filet tasted like it was boiled in dish water. It was undercooked and flavorless while the crab cake was just about burnt. We had the fried green tomato appetizer and while it was good, it was cold. I order a lemon drop every where I go, and I couldn’t even finish mine. It was awful. For a $140 meal, I expected much more. Will never return.

    Food was very good. We think they have the best crab cakes in town. Service was great. They have a modest wine menu, but it is very reasonably priced. I like they that they have a nice variety of good bourbons at a reasonable price. All in all, it was a very nice evening.

    I have always heard great things about Mikey's and was excited to finally dine here. Greeter was not friendly, but we had a reservation and was seated right away. Chris was a great, attentive server. Our drinks were good. Bread service was good. The rolls were fresh and hot. We split the diver scallop appetizer. They were cooked perfectly. The sauce was suppose to be a cajun cream sauce, but it was tasted less cajun and more like a lemon/butter cream sauce. I had snapper. Again, cooked well, but bland. It was supposed to be crusted with horseradish. We were assured that the flavor would be subtle, not too overwhelmimg. It was very underwhelming with no horseradish flavor at all. The shrimp on top was cooked well, but had little seasoning. My boyfriend had a rib eye. Bland and tough to chew. Bland night! It's a pretty place, not loud, very comfortable. I hate the food was just meh. But, this place has been there a long time, so a lot of people must like it.

    This was our first visit and we enjoyed the service and the food tremendously. The fresh seafood and steak were cooked perfectly with fresh salad and lots of beer and wine to choose from. Everyone on the staff was friendly and went out of their way to help us with our selections and fill our drinks. It was louder than expected but the place was full. We saw some friends too and the local feeling was great. We will return for another special night!

    We tried it because we like trying new places we haven't been before. This was good for a last minute Valentines dinner venue. The place was really noisy. My wife and I both ordered the filet with crabcakes. I ordered medium temperature and my wife ordered medium well. Mine was almost completely raw, and my wife's was cooked medium rare. For $40 each, look like we could have gotten steaks to our order. It was ok, but doubt if we will be back or even tell our friends about it.

    This is normally one of our favorite places to eat. However, it just wasn’t up to its normal standard this time. The food was good but it got cold really fast. The overall service was not like usual. While the restaurant was not very busy, our waiter did not come around very often and we had to wait a while for our check.

    We joined another couple and had a great time. I had a special that had some tile, fish, crabcake and shrimp, and it was delicious. Our friends had crabcakes and said that they were some of the best they had ever had. the meal was excellent. The only reason that we did give a five star for service was our server was working so hard doing the best he could, but they were very busy. It was a very good experience.

    Ambiance was ok. Service was a little slow and the two different fish entrees that two of us ordered had zero seasoning-and this is coming from people who Never add extra salt to their meals. Maybe it was an off night but spending over $50 for a $35 bland entree and glass of wine was very disappointing. My other friend said her gumbo was fine.

    This was our first experience at Mikey’s, but definitely not our last. The server was very good and explaining the night’s specials. We chose the fried seafood platter and the roast elk. I asked that we split the seafood as an appetizer, and split the elk as our main course. They brought both ou together, which was not what we wanted. We made the best of it. The seafood platter had one crab cake. It was one of the best we have ever had. It was our first experience eating elk. It was delicious as was the risotto that came with it. All n all an excellent meal.

    Mikey's Grill has become one of our favorite restaurants. The food is second to none. It is Excellent! Also, Mikey's is a very freindly place. And the wait staff is great. The noise level is low enough to allow easy conversation, but not so low that you feel like you are in a library. I highly recommend Mikey's.

    Unassuming five star quality restaurant, reasonably priced for the quality and selections. Multiple seafood choices, prepared perfectly. Grouper topped with lump crab meat served with a Hollandaise sauce was fresh, meaty, and the flavors blended well together. Also recommend the filet medallion appetizer, which was so extremely flavorful and tender. Service was exceptional…

    We came to Birmingham (from Memphis) to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We love steak and seafood so, after reviewing several romantic but affordable options, we decided to dine at Mikey's Grill. My thoughts... Pros: The service, menu options, and food quality were excellent. Our server was polite, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The interior of the restaurant is beautiful with hints of New Orleans on the walls, appropriate lighting, and sparsely decorated tables (my preference...less to move out of the way). Salads and entrees were delivered timely and without being rushed. I ordered the Blackened Seafood Sampler, a special for the night, and it was delicious! My husband ordered the petite filet, served with a crab cake, and I heard no complaints! The seafood is very fresh and the prices are reasonable. Cons: Window seating was appreciated but I didn't expect to overlook a shopping center parking lot during our anniversary dinner. I'm not knocking the location as here in Memphis one of our most famous restaurants is literally in an alley and, to be fair, I did choose the restaurant. The restaurant was very warm from the kitchen activities and 3 fans weren't working BUT our server did adjust the air conditioning which was much appreciated. The noise level is moderate to energetic, if the latter is what you would call several groups talking over each other. Mikey's Grill would not be my first choice for an anniversary dinner but I would recommend it for business lunches/dinners, dinner with friends, and/or casual date nights.
