My husband's petite filet was not cooked properly. My snapper was bland, shrimp was good. My niece's snapper was mushy. The salads were minimal with a plate full of lettuce, 2 unripe cherry tomatoes, 2 thinly sliced cucumber pieces and 2 thinly sliced onion-bleu cheese dressings was not very good. Manager did not come out to converse with us after we told waiter of our issues. Not a good experience at all.

We went for New Year’s Eve so they were pretty busy but also short staffed. We had a reservation but got sat about 45 minutes later since they were short staffed. Food came out rather quickly but our waiter definitely seemed ready to go (I understand). Once our food was dropped off, we didn’t see him again until most of our table had finished their meals. Unfortunately the filet mignon I ordered to be cooked medium rare came out medium well, but since our waiter didn’t come to check on us I didn’t have a chance to tell him until he asked if I wanted a to go plate (I ate two bites). I told him no because it was much too well done, but he just took my plate and said nothing.
Disappointing for my first experience there. I do get that service can be hit or miss anywhere on New Year’s Eve, hence three stars instead of less.

Service was great with Brittany, but the wine list was a bit limited and steaks were bland and fish was a little mushy and small for the price. Will try again or get apps and drinks next time. Nice quiet place which is welcomed when so many places have exposed ceilings and are large rooms were noise is terrible.

Very nice dinner. We enjoyed the decor and ambience.
The food was very good, but lacked a little flavour. They did not have baked potatoes, only pan fried pieces.

Overall a very nice date night place.

we arrived late on a Saturday night and still received excellent and friendly service, excellent food and a good value. The Grouper special was excellent , the salads and real croutons were a thrill and the had a good but modest wine list.

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.
