    Gumbo needs help - roux was too dark, not enough seafood in the bowl. Way to thin. Shrimp and Crawfish pasta had no flavor. Snapper with Macadamia Nut crust was good. Our server was attentive

    We stumbled onto this because of open table and were so impressed with it. Also, we are thrilled to find out that there is another location even closer to our home. Would highly recommend. We were told the Hoover one we attended is quieter and has more of a causal elegant vibe w the food slightly altered from the more pub style flavor of the one near Helena. Can’t wait to try the other.

    Honestly it’s my fault for setting the reservation later in the evening. They were out of multiple menu items and didn’t tell us until we tried to order. Grouper meal was subpar. Filet was under seasoned. Crab cake was delicious as always. Rarely do I leave a restaurant before I’m full but without the appetizer and dessert in stock this New Year’s Eve meal was unfulfilling.

    I ordered the blackened ribeye special and ended up with a NY strip steak that had absolutely no taste. Disappointing for $40+ both my son and I did not eat our salads. Both were a ton of shredded lettuce two onion rings, two pieces of cucumber and three Tommy two tomato’s.

    We chose the restaurant out of convenience, as it was close to our concert venue. I walked in and saw the Diane Milsap art all over the walls, and knew I was good hands!! The waiter told us they don’t have a freezer and only use fresh seafood and ingredients and it showed. If you love New Orleans cuisine, Mikey’s Grill will not disappoint. 🙌🏻

    The food was outstanding. We had an appetizer of okra, and some of the best gumbo that I’ve had in a long time. My wife had a ribeye which was prepared well and reasonably priced and I had a daily special featuring crawfish tails and tuna it was excellent. The dinner was delicious and the value for the dollar was outstanding.

    The food was excellent. Crab cakes never disappoint. They are perfect every single time. I had the ribeye with lump crab meat, potatoes and spinach. The spinach literally melted in my mouth and the potatoes were divine. The steak was cooked perfectly. It was all delicious.

    I found Mikey‘s on yelp and read the reviews and was excited to try it. My husband and I went for a date night. I’ve been looking for a Cajun restaurant for a long time because my parents live in New Orleans and I grew up with great food. This restaurant was no disappointment. We had the crabcake for an appetizer which was phenomenal. I had a fillet for dinner that was cooked perfectly. My husband had a steak as well with fried spinach and roasted new potatoes. We also ordered Fried and before we left placed another order to go to bring home because it was so good! The ambience is nice. It’s in a strange location in a strip mall but once you walk in you forget The strip mall part. Nice and clean and beautiful bar area. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. We are adding those to our list of favorite restaurants! Almost forgot had bread pudding for dessert which my husband went nuts over. He’s now a reformed bread pudding lover.

    I rated Mikey’s based on previous experience. This time, a storm had blown through and knocked out power so we were unable to dine there. The staff was gracious and apologized profusely, but I know it was out of there control. I would highly recommend Mikey’s to everyone!

    Always a great experience at Mikey’s. The service and the food! Recently, the interior at Mikey’s has had a very nice ‘facelift’ making the dining experience more private from the bar area, hence a bit more nice and quiet atmosphere. The crab claws and alligator tail appetizers never disappoint! We all 4 ordered a different seafood entree and all were delicious. Looking forward to our next dining experience at Mikey’s. PC

    Our Waitress was new. She was very sweet, however, my husband ordered the ribeye and his entire order was incorrect. He didn’t want to cause her any problems at her new job, so He kept the incorrect order, which was $11 More expensive than the original order and when the bill came, we were charged for the more expensive, incorrect order. The food was not seasoned. At all. None of it. I squeezed a lemon over my fish to make it edible because I was hungry. It had zero salt on it. Zero. Our meal, with the tip, was $110.00. We did leave a tip because the waitress was so sweet. The food was not good. We will certainly not go back.
