If you are looking for an amazing dining experience, try us out! It is truly one of Hoover, Alabama's hidden gems!!
Mikey's was fabulous as usual. Our favorite waiter, Chris Corbin, always does an exceptional job taking care of us. Mikey's is a hidden neighborhood gem for sure. Any time we have friends in from out of town we always take them to Mikey's and they are most impressed with the food and service.
Very nice dinner and pleasant dining experience.
I like the atmosphere of the small restaurant.
As usual the food was outstanding. Always love to dine at Mike’s.
Atmosphere is very casual, but the prices are not. Service was very good, but I was not comfortable leaving a tip with the waiter hovering over my shoulder. The salad was a plate of lettuce, two small grape tomatoes, two tiny slices of onion, and one thin slice of cucumber. The sautéed snapper was bland, but the crab cakes were great.
We were not given a drink menu at all. Crab cakes were delicious but somehow they looked lonely on the plate. The blue cheese dressing was great. The steak looked odd. Tasted ok but still had an odd shape. Can’t explain. Was not a $75 meal with no drinks. We drank water
Food was very good however like other restaurants these days they are short on servers. Out server seemed too busy and our order was messed up. They quickly corrected however this is an expensive restaurant to have these problems.
The food was phenomenal. The service was horrid. Love this restaurant, but will not be coming back unless we sit at the bar or order takeout.
At a recent family dinner we sampled the fried crab claws and grilled shrimp for apps. FAB! All of our entries were great, but the pecan crusted fish and shrimp took center stage. Then the grand finale of chocolate cheese cake and bread pudding desserts left us arguing about which was best. This place really is a hidden gem.
We enjoyed all of it. The service and the food.
Highly reccommend it.
This was our second visit in a month. Both times brought out of town visitors. Food has been excellent each time! Baked salmon, seafood pasta, very tasty entrees. The desserts are excellent as well.
Waitresses are friendly and very attentive. We’ll definitely be back often!
Excellent food as always and excellent service. I could eat one of their crab cakes everyday!!
It's a 5 star restaurant quietly tucked in South Lake. The steak and crab cake cannot be bested in Birmingham. Consistently excellent food and service. You won't be disappointed.
We enjoyed the food and the service very much; thought it was excellent.
Overall enjoyable meal. Great Service! Food was generally just OK except for the crab cakes which were the best I have ever had by far. Corn meal batter on the fried seafood was disappointing and really distracted from an otherwise solid plate. Portion size was good but meal was a little pricey for the quality. Wine was good with some good values. Will definitely give a second chance.
When we arrived, there Seemed to be total confusion on where to seat us. Then they wanted to seat us right next to one of the two tables already filled. Seemed no concern for the dining experience of the customer. Just what most fit the needs of the wait staff. We had an early seating and when more customers began to arrive things got very noisy. There was no acknowledgment that it was our fiftieth wedding anniversary although I had noted it on my reservation. But the food was very good and the waitress excellent.
Great food!!! The crab cakes are fabulous. Will dine again!!!
Server, Lori, was outstanding. Was our first time. We loved everything about the restaurant; can be a little noisy. We will be returning.
The food was wonderful. Especially the crab cakes. The service was not as good as it normally is.
Food was excellent as well as the staff. Zane was a great waiter!
Food decent. Service awkward and clumsy.
The food was very good and the service was excellent.
Very good menu and dinner. Server forgot to put in our app, but we forgot too. It was not charged to us. Food was pretty good, worth the price for sure.
Perfect valentines dinner with wife and friends
Fantastic as always. The food and service are exceptional. Black and blue ribeye appetizer is to die for. Fresh fish cooked to please. Delicious made-from-scratch desserts. My favorite restaurant around.
Honestly, was what we expected and had hoped for coming from a past at Fox Valley. Not to compare but was pleasantly surprised at what felt like finding and old friend. Mikey’s will be at the top frequent list!
The staff is friendly and efficient. The food is top notch. The menu items are varied and always very tasty.
Remains one of my favorite places! From steaks to seafood, never had anything there that I didn't like.
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.
We've been looking for a good neighborhood restaurant ever since Justin's closed years ago. This might just fit the bill. The food was good and it is close to home.
Wonderful restaurant, very good fresh food choices. Have enjoyed the consistency and and attention to detail of all dishes for a number of years. Never had a bad meal or experance.
Had a delicious meal for our Anniversary Enjoyed every minute of it
Great food! Great environment. Waiter suggestions were good. I ate one of the specials he suggested and it was delicious. My wife thought mine was better than hers and wants to go back to try something different.
Great meal and good service.
Great meal and good service.
Great service. Wonderful seafood. Always dependable Best crab cakes ever!
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.
THE STEAK AND CRAB CAKE ARE THE BEST I EVER HAD. IF ANYONE IS FROM BIRMINGHAM AND HAVE TRIED FOX VALLEY RESTAURANT, MIKEY WAS THE CHEF THERE FOR YEARS AND YEARS.
HE HAS AN AMAZING GIFT FOR FLAVORS AND RECIPES.
GO TO MIKEY'S, YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!
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.
Great food!! Excellent update to the old Fox Valley menu and the chef is amazing! Definitely a must try :)
Noisy, service very, very slow. Food ok. No comparison to Highlands, Bottega, Satterfield’s. Will not return.
