Mikey has only the freshest seafood delivered multiple times a week, he cuts all steaks in house and even makes all of the his own sauces and bread. Mikey's is truly a family affair; with Mikey whipping up amazing creations with a Cajun flare in the kitchen, Melissa, selecting the wine and running the front and even their Mom, Donna, pitches in baking her delectable homemade desserts!
If you are looking for an amazing dining experience, try us out! It is truly one of Hoover, Alabama's hidden gems!!

Dinner at Mikey’s was a very good experience. Food was delicious and nicely presented. We were surprised by the crunchy crabcake appetizer loaded with tender crabmeat. Yummy. The pecan crusted snapper special was fresh and delicious. Great attention to social distancing made us feel more comfortable. Seemed to be an issue with not enough wait staff. However, our service was good. We needed a nice dinner out and got it at Mikey’s.

The food was delicious and plentiful. Service was excellent. Our only complaint was my husband ordered a filet medium rare and specified it should lean toward rare. It came medium to well. But overall we enjoyed out food. Loved the house made herb vinaigrette dressing. Salad was nice size for a side salad served with our entrees.

This place is a real hidden jewel. Service is top notch and the food was both prepared and presented in a manner befitting a much more expensive menu (and longer commute). We'll return soon.

we are so excited to be able to come back to your establishment.
we came before COVID, but it was SO wonderful to be able to eat outside
and have that quality of food.
i loved having reservations, tablecloths and all the fabulous rolls we could eat!
our waiter was marvelous, as well as the entire staff.
i have already told a couple of our friends :)
you will certainly be a regular 'date' night for us, and a fun get together with others.
I LOVED IT!!!

Service was great , friendly staff. Bread and salad were good as were crab claws. My husband and daughter in laws steaks were inedible. My sons seafood platter was cold and shrimp were rubbery. My seafood pasta lacked flavor. Prices expensive for the low quality

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
