Had the fried green tomato with Bourdain, crayfish and lumped crabmeat appetizer. If they have this get it!!! Then had crabmeat cakes for main course and my wife had baked snapper with lumped crabmeat.

We enjoy allot of good seafood living in Florida and this was some of the best seafood we have enjoyed anywhere. Fish was really fresh and flavorful. The sauces were just right. It was a wonderful dinner.

The service was great, but unfortunately the food was so bland. My family and I were highly disappointed, especially reading the good food reviews. I hate giving bad reviews, but if you’re looking for flavorful food, this isn’t the place to go.

This was our 2nd visit to Mikey’s and the service, food, and ambiance didn’t disappoint. The staff was on point with greeting, drinks and refills, ordering and food delivery, dessert, and the bill. We couldn’t have asked for better service.

The food was delicious!! We each ordered something different, and every plate was presented beautifully, and seasoned just right.

Everything was perfect with one exception, and I don’t believe it is a reflection on the restaurant. We made this reservation through Open Table because it was Mother’s Day weekend and knew it would be impossible to get a table somewhere without one. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived at Mikey’s at 4:10pm for our 4:15pm reservation, only to find out that the restaurant didn’t open until 4:30pm. Everyone was confused about how that could even happen.

The hostess and manager went out of their way, bringing us drinks and seating us outside for a while while they finished preparing a table for us inside, while other guests started arriving. At 4:25pm, we were brought inside to our table. Now that’s great customer service!

We enjoyed the food. It was tasty and well presented. We had a drink at the bar before dinner and were disappointed with the limited beer selection. For what is promoted as a fine dining establishment, it would be nice if the staff has some sort of uniform ie black shirt black pants, white shirt black pants etc. I think it would up their game.

It was a great experience. I was here visiting and looking for last minute dinner reservations. This place had an opening and I jumped on it. This was actually the best meal of my trip. I tired the gator strips, gumbo, and seafood pasta. All had great flavor. Most importantly the service was great. Interestingly my party was seated outside but the bartender was our waiter. I was amazed at his talent to juggle us and the bar. He made wonderful and timely drinks ;)

The dining room was full. We were seated by the door with freezing temperatures. We asked to move, no issue there. Service was incredibly slow and it appeared that staff wasn’t communicating with each other. Waited 40 minutes for a salad. I would return for pick up. The food was fresh and delicious.

Start off with positive, no one was there. The bread pudding was very good. The restaurant was very unclean. The carpet had not been vacuumed in looked liked weeks. One of the girls had lost her earring, so we looked for it with our phone flashlights under the table, it was disgusting. Th waiter was not with it. I ordered my steak well done,, I had to send it back. The steak had a lot of fat and grizzle in it. The beer was warm and several beers on the menu were not available. It was a birthday gathering and nothing was special, birthday was not recognized by restaurant. Very disappointed!

The place was at full capacity. I was very surprised. There were three servers, two bartenders and one bus boy who were not wearing masks! I thought we were under a statewide mask mandate?! Very disappointed. The food was excellent though.

Valentines Dinner. Our steaks ( a filet and a ribeye) were tender but tasteless. No seasoning or flavor at all. The bread, crab cakes and desert were all good). Do not go here for steaks.

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.
