Mikey's Grill Ratings and Reviews
Oh My what a fabulous meal, The Seafood Gumbo was to die for and no one can make a Crab Cake or cook a Filet like Mickey. The meal was perfect!! The server we had was down to earth (no stuffed shirts in here), very attentive and we had to wait on nothing. I cannot remember when I have enjoyed a meal where everything was so perfect. We will be back and very soon. Our friend from Athens Georgia drove all the way here just to have Mickey's Crab cakes and Filet. That should tell you something.
Mikey’s has the Best Crabcake I ever had and it is 99% crabmeat, a Spectacular Brown sauce comes on it! This is one of my favorite restaraunts! Don’t miss trying it! They have such great Food! The service is Awesome! Ask for Chris for your waiter! He is the Best there is!
The food and service was outstanding. However, we do not like how they have to run the credit card machine right in front of the guest and ask the guest to add the tip right in front of the server. The machine at the table needs to be eliminated. Several of our friends feel the same way about it.
Wonderful fresh seafood. Everything was prepared perfectly and the waitress made for a great evening. The cobbler for desert was a perfect ending. Our main course came before we finished our salads but we are slow eaters and should have told the waitress to delay starting our entrees.
In Birmingham from Murfreesboro for another dog show. We're always looking for great places to dine and Mikey's was a great find. Fun menu and delicious food. The service by Zane K was great and we enjoyed ourselves. The soup of the day was a Crayfish Chowder blend that tasted awesome. My wife enjoyed her Crayfish pasta and my Mac Nut encrusted Snapper was delicious. It's definitely a popular restaurant for local's and they treated us like one of the gang. A little noisy, but people were having fun. It's now on our favorites list for future returns.
We went based on the reviews we read. Easy to get to and nicely appointed inside. The meal was a mixed bag. The dinner salad was nothing but a handful of lettuce and two shriveled (inexcusable) brownish grape tomatoes. The Crab Cake, which the wait person highly recommended was nothing special, probably frozen. The Snapper, on the other hand, was cooked perfectly and the butter honey sauce was very good but the shrimp topping really took something away from the dish. The meals all came at different times, never a good thing. Seemed expensive to me. Most dinner dishes were around 30 bucks.
Don't let the location fool you. Much more here than may meet the eye. The strip mall location in Hoover just off of 65/Valleydale Road belies the quality of the cuisine at Mikey's. We had a party of 5. We all had something different and everything was excellent. Starting with the small, warm little rolls to the salads to entrees to the beignets for dessert, it was all very good. The service was excellent (was pretty empty on a Saturday night sadly).
Would highly recommend, especially if you enjoy seafood and a bit of New Orleans flair. Worth the drive for a great meal. I think if they were in a better location you would not be able to get a table.
Food was wonderful! Our server was super nice, but it took forever to get our appetizers, then our salads and our entrees. Needs to be a little quicker. Also, it's super noisy so hard to talk with our friends. We thoroughly enjoyed our food, though! Might try eating outside next time.
My wife and I enjoyed a mid-week meal at Mikey's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We both had the "fish of the day" which was red snapper topped with lump crab meat and hollandaise sauce. The fish was very fresh dill well prepared. The portion size was rather modest, but since we both had appetizers, we were well satisfied. I thought that the prices were appropriate for what would have to be described as fine dining. Our waiter was courteous and attentive. This was our first visit to Mikey's Grill, but it won't be our last!
We read about Mikey's on Open Table. Mikey's lived up to and exceeded our expectations. We met Mike and his sister Melissa and they both made the 4 of us feel "right at home". It's a great place and we would highly recommend it to all of our family and friends.
We continue to find Mikey's Grill to be our go-to place for a low pressure, great dining experience. It is a hidden treasure in a strip mall that could be successful as a stand alone location, but we like where it is because most folks can't imagine a restaurant of this quality in a strip mall. That works fine for us because we can almost always get a reservation, even day of the meal. Truly a neighborhood gem.
This is an excellent restaurant! The food is always exceptional and the service is top rate. Although the prices are a little high for a weekly treat, it is well worth the price for the quality and quantity of food. Great place for lunch since the prices are a little lower.
This was my second visit to the restaurant. I brought friends from out of town this time because I knew I could count on the food to be great and the service too. Thanks for not disappointing ! We had a great time and a fantastic meal. My new favorite place to eat ! Crab cakes are the bomb !
