The horseradish snapper and crab cake appetizer was mediocre. The seafood platter was good as was the gumbo. I just expected more flavor for my snapper.

The restaurant was cold, the food was marginal and very expensive. I will choose to go elsewhere next time, especially for that kind of money. Very disappointing.

dinner should have had a vegetable on plate, not appetizing with slice of lemon and orange only on our fish special dinner and seafood samplers. Food was good and came with a salad and rolls, but for pricing of $32.50 per entree, plates should contain a starch or vegetable as other high end restaurants in the area. Server was attentive til we got our dinner then it took at a while for us to get our check.

Very noisy due to a large group. Mgmt. should ask that the noise level should be toned down as a respect for other patrons.

The crab cakes are the best ever. Each of our entrees was excellent. A great value for the quality of the meals.

Recommended by friends, we found Mikey's to have savory food in a low-key setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, at a relaxed pace.

The food was lovely, the wine pour, generous. Decent beer on tap. The waitstaff, while attentive, and helpful, were disheveled in dress. It reduces the tone of the restaurant unfortunately. I just wish Mikey’s could improve their ambience to match the quality of their food.

Went with friends for a quiet lunch. We were greeted and seated immediately by our waitress Kelly. Kelly was very friendly and efficient. Food was excellent. We could not have had a better experience.

Overall an good first time experience. The particular cut of meat for the Ribeye was not the best, although it was prepared as ordered and had a good flavor. The fried crab claws were delicious. The fish of the day was pompano; it was prepared well and had a great flavor. Would definitely come again.

As a world traveler and foodie I have to be honest. The food especially the snapper and grouper seemed to be something I would get at Costco and then baked and garnished. The asparagus was boiled and the cheesecake was not fresh. I was disappointed not by the food which was not bad but the high prices charged as if there was an actual chef concocting these dishes. I give them credit for inguinewity.

We made birthday reservations for 6 on Tuesday and arrived to find the restaurant closed. No sign on the door, reservations available on this platform, nothing. I know everyone is having trouble finding help and keeping them healthy but a little information goes a long way.
Stay safe. Get vaccinated.

Our first visit to Mikey’s post pandemic for my friend’s birthday. We ate outside because inside seemed a bit noisy. The outdoor tables and chairs are not the most comfortable — chairs sit low, and the tables high. We went there looking forward to the baked salmon we’ve enjoyed for years, and it is no longer on the menu — disappointing. I hope they will bring it back. When asked, our server offered no explanation. That said, the grouper we ordered was delicious! Our server was not especially attentive, but that was probably because we were outside. We enjoyed our evening, but it was not as special as we remembered from past (pre-COVID) experience. Still glad to be back at Mikey’s, and will go again!

The food and service was amazing. Brittany, our waitress was awesome. Started with crab cake appetizer which was so good! Steak with crab topping, garlic potatoes and spinach was excellent and way more than I could eat. Plan on returning often.
