Crab Cake Sandwich

We frequent Mikey’s often, even rented the entire restaurant for our rehearsal dinner before (because it’s THAT good!) but this last time we ate was disappointing. The crab cakes came out barely warm. The server forgot my Father in law’s salad, they were out of crab claws (which is what 2 of the 5 of us wanted) and service was just sub-par. We will definitely be back, but I feel they were very inadequately staffed for the volume of people dining.
Valentine’s Day with my Wife and Daughter.
Food did not have any flavor, but the restaurant was very nice also like the signing group that was there for Valentine's
Always pleased at Mickey’s even on a busy night like Valentine’s!
We have always enjoyed going to Mikey's grill and find it to be in line with other upper scale dinning experiences.
If you are looking for a relaxed dining experience with good food in a smaller, no-frills restaurant, consider Mickey’s Grill. The food was very good and a good value. The atmosphere is like a small family restaurant with just okay decor. We will return for a evening out for dinner.
This restaurant is in a shopping center, which is common for the area. Upon entering, we were off to a bit of a rocky start. The host/greeter was nowhere in sight. We hovered and wandered to the bar to inquire. When someone appeared, I emphasized that we had made our reservation through Open Table, giving the surname and "party of two" and stated that I WANTED to be checked in for my Open Table credit. Someone stared confusedly at a computer. We asked for a quiet table in a dark empty corner near two walls of windows and were warned that it was chilly in that part of the dining room. We were then warned that our waiter would have to walk all the way over there. (Perhaps seven feet off the beaten path). We perservered.
After that, we received excellent warm and friendly service from two people. We were given ample time. The wine list is short but has a few interesting and tasty offerings. The level and tone of communication with the wait staff was perfect. The sauces were quite nice, and the portions generous. It became an enjoyable and memorable evening. Upon returning to our hotel, I received an e-mail from OpenTable asking why we never showed for the reservation.
Great food and service. Relaxed atmosphere. Never had a bad meal at Mikey’s.
Always love eating at Mickey’s. Food is great.
We were immediately seated at our table upon arrival. Our waiter was unobtrusive yet attentive. We were brought fresh bread with butter that was softened from the warmth of the bread, which made the butter easily spread. Two of us had the grouper Oscar which was quite good in just the right portion. One had the seafood appetizer as his entree and he seemed to enjoy it. My wife had her usual Chicken Saltimbocca (single breast) and it was good as usual. Highly recommended for a casual dinner with friends.
We chose Mikey’s for a birthday celebration. The food was good but overpriced and none of the entries include a side item. The restrooms were disgusting which makes you worry the kitchen was just as bad. The atmosphere is lacking, which helps explain the empty restaurant at 7:00 on a Friday night. We expressed our dissatisfaction with the server and she spoke to the owner/manager. He didn’t even come to our table to check in. I would not recommend this restaurant and will not be visiting again.
Great food. Good service. We will be back.
Delectable food; attentive service; good variety from which to select.
ALWAYS amazing and yummy food, the service always top notch, couldn't think of a better restaurant to have Christmas dinner, THANK you!!!
Food was excellent. We had the seafood platter for an appetizer. My wife had the fillet and crab cake which she loved. I had seafood pasta which was very good. Our waitress Britney did an excellent job of explaining the specials and making sure we had what we needed
I had the crab cakes. They were deep fried (not pan fried). The crust was super hot, but the inside was refrigerator cold.
Additionally, our server drove us craze by replying “No Problem” to every “thank you” we gave her. It was nice to know that we were no problem!!!
We came for a family dinner and everything was great. The fresh grouper was excellent and the steaks were cooked perfectly. We all loved the fried spinach! Everyone enjoyed their meal, including the alligator bites and baked salmon. We were nearly too full for dessert but were able to try the bread pudding - yum! Will be back.
Great food! We knew we would enjoy the experience based on the online menu.
Great meal. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Services was very good.
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.
Great food. Service was mediocre at best.
Wonderful food! He crab cakes are the best I’ve ever had and the steak was so tender and flavorful. We’ll definitely be back!
2nd time we have visited. We hoped it had gotten better but sad to say it had not. I had the snapper with pecan sauce. It soggy and had little or no taste. My wife had the Alfredo, small frozen shrimp and soupy noodles. Very disappointing for the premium prices.
Mikey’s is a hidden gem in Birmingham. The crab cakes are the best I’ve ever had, also all the sauces are fantastic. From Appetizers to salads to the entrees, all excellent!!
First visit but will be back! Food was excellent and our waitress was very friendly.
Everything was wonderful as usual.
Mikey’s is a good restaurant. I had the gumbo which was just average. We love their okra so much we always get two orders. The salad was good. The entrees were good, not great. We like that you can bring in your own bottle for $10 corkage fee. We enjoy eating at Mikey’s. It is a nice,local place.
We do not go to Mikey's often, but we know that when we do go it will always be the same consistent quality of food and service!!
Great service and food everytime
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food & restaurant!!
Quiet, comfortable atmosphere. The food was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly. I would definitely recommend it.
We've been there many times and invited some friends for their first time. They were very impressed with the food. I'm certain they will return.
Very Good! Surprised the place was kinda empty. Maybe just and off night. I would recommend them.
Went to Mikey’s Grill for an anniversary dinner with 3 other family members. When placing reservation on Open Table - designated anniversary. They gave us a very nice table and everything was ready for us. Service was impeccable and our dinners all delicious. We had the sautéed snapper, macadamia nut snapper, baked salmon and Cajun pasta. Everyone loved their meals! Also have to mention the dessert. Bread pudding to die for! I highly recommend Mikey’s Grill for dinner and special occasions!
It was our wedding anniversary. The food was very good. The macadamia snapper was excellent. Beer and wine selection was very good. The fried crabclaws were OK. The crab cake was excellent. Service was very good and our waiter was not intrusive. We will recommend Mikey’s Grill to our friends. Thanks for a lovely evening.
The service and food was awesome. We had the grouper and it was very fresh.
Food was extremely good. Crab cakes can't be beat, absolutely delicious. Entrees come with a salad - basic leaf lettuce, onion rings, cucumber slices and cherry tomatoes with homemade dressings. All sides area la carte. Service was good, and restaurant was quiet enough that we had no problem carrying on a conversation. Highly recommend - would be great for a special occasion or a business dinner.
Wonderful spot to catch up with an old friend over nice wine and good wine. No crowds during the week.
Food was delicious and service was excellent! We will definitely be back.
The food was absolutely the BEST we have had in Birmingham/Hoover!!! Service was awesome too! We will certainly be back.
