Great burgers and cheese curds! We weren't sure where to stop but happy we found a place that had great food!
We had dinner at Mikey's before a show at the Pabst Theater. This is a great location near the theater and parking. Food was excellent - so was the service. We arrived early 5:30 so very little crowd at the time. It seems to be a popular late night bar scene for the younger crowd but perfect for a casual dinner before a show. The burgers and sliders were excellent! I would definitely return to Mikey's again. Our waitress went out of her way to make sure we had a great time.
A great place before a downtown show. Excellent selection of beer and food.
The service was friendly, prompt, attentive but not pushy. We've eaten here before and will be back.
Food was delicious. We had the Milwaukee AF-delicious. We were there before it got busy and service was average. Prices very reasonable. Would recommend/return.
The food was delicious! I had the hummus and kickin' chicken. Yummy!
Great downtown location near red arrow park. Amazing burgers. Great service and hospitality. I will definitely be visiting here again .
Great place for a drink. Food is typical bar food. Service started out slow given the lack or partons but improved.
Hey Open Table, I actually have no idea how this place was because you let me make a reservation and they were closed! How are you helpful to this place. I left a good review because it’s notbtheute fault.
Had a great meal before going on to a show. Service was friendly, food delicious. Best burger ever, done just to my order. Will be back to try for lunch. Looks like a fun place for outdoor dining.
Seemed very short staffed, food took a long time.
Bethany, our server was absolutely wonderful. Had 4 types of BBQ, which were all pretty good. Mac and Cheese side was a little flavorless. Baked Beans were amazing.
Great food, good service and they were giving out cocktail samples which was delightful.
Very mediocre food, fatty brisket, buns were poor quality, not toasted, no butter, no taste to sandwich.
Salad, a few tidbits of blue cheese.
Our first time there. Excellent server. Food plating presentation was well done. Comment from two that had bloody Mary's that they seemed bland, not enough seasoning. The salad and sandwiches were very good but the dessert....key lime bar was better then excellent, just needed to be served with spoons without having such deep bowl to them. We used our forks and enjoyed them to the very end.
First and last time at Mikey's. Started off with something very slimy in my friend's salad. Then, the brisket sandwich was very dry and had to ask for additional bbq sauce, which when going to a bbq place, you would think they would bring their signature sauces automatically. Had to actually take the bun off and look to see if there was really cheese on the sandwich. The homemade chips were ok - you could tell they didn't use any salt or seasoning when making them. Our dessert was supposed to be red velvet cake with cream cheese mousse layers and hot fudge on top. The cream cheese mousse layers were nothing like mousse - quite rubbery and gross and there was no hot fudge on top. When asked the waitress about the hot fudge, she said, no, sorry, not on this dessert. We did point to the table next to us with the same dessert that had hot fudge and she just shrugged and walked away. Also, my friend and I both had a sprite. My friend asked for water 1/2 way thru our meal. The waitress came over and gave her water, which I wasn't paying much attention to until she asked if I wanted water as well and I said, sure. She poured both of our waters in our SODA glasses! Would not recommend this place to anyone!
We really enjoyed our meal. We had the Downtown Dining Week special dinner and it was very good. Our server was very attentive as was the host who made time to stop and ask us how we were enjoying our meal. The BBQ is solid. It's not the best we've had but it is proper BBQ. We will be back for sure.
Went there for Downtown Dining. For $25, it was def. worth it. Portion was very good. Enjoyed the cheese curds. The spare ribs fell off the bone. Brisket and pulled pork were a little dry but w/ bbq sauce it helped.
Some of the best BBQ we have had in Milwaukee. The mac & cheese was outstanding!
Ecellent food and open seating with views of Cathedral Square. We recommend the Taco Trio and all of the barbecue dishes we tried were excellent.
Service was slow
I was pleased with the chicken dinner I ordered. I loved the Kansas City BBQ sauce. My chicken was tender. The cocktails were great! I would go again.
This place is so underrated! The food is amazing and the service is always great. They just revamped their menu and it couldn't be more delicious- a hidden gem in Milwaukee!
Service was excellent. Food portion we all thought was on the small side, the wings were very good, cheese curds also. We had ribs, brisket, pulled chicken. The ribs were done perfectly. Pulled chicken was good, however the brisket was hot and miss. Some was tender and done right, some was dry, a bit fatty and tough. Overall though we were happy with our experience.
Sadly, we were not able to eat at Mikey's. Although we were able to make our reservations on Open Table for 5pm on Friday 11/25/16 when we arrived the restaurant was closed!
We ended up going next door to eat. No signs on the doors or anything. When we left the other restaurant Mikey's was still closed (at 6:45pm).
It's too bad we didn't receive notification that they place was closed.
Mi*key's was overall a disappointing experience for our group. We had a reservation for 6pm. We were for most of the time, the only people in the place. While they did meet our request to be done with our dinner close to 7 (as we has an event to attend) the food was just OK for the price. Brisket and chicken were dry, and the sauces were nothing exciting. While we were eating, they turned down the lighting down so low that we needed to use our phone lights to read the sauce bottles! The location and view of the cathedral are great, sadly Mi*key's is not.
Came here on a Wednesday evening. Very few people in the restaurant. Food was delisioua but 4 top tables were extremely small to the point where 4 entree tables made it almost impossible to eat.
Was in town for anniversary, agreed on BBQ and loved it. The meat was great and husband said it was maybe the best he has ever had, and I have taken him to a lot of BBQ's. As we were leaving, he definitely wants to come back if we are in area again.
Nice stop for downtown dining. Great value.
Tried it during the downtown dining and will return.
Food I can recommend, but the service was poor. 10 minutes to get served our first drink over 20 minutes waiting for the second. A half an hour between appetizers and the main course, and it wasn't even busy.
I would only recommend this place if you want to see a bunch of young waitresses wearing itty bitty, skin-tight dresses. That whole vibe really turned turned me off and it makes me think the owner is a creep. Brisket and pork were dry and not very flavorful. At least the cheese curds were good.
if you want ribs, go to Carson's! It took 30 minutes to get our main course after appetizers. Wings were overcooked and dry. Ribs were fatty and barbecue sauces were uninspired.
I chose Mikey's for one of the evenings during Downtown Dining week as I hadn't been there in a few years. My previous experience was very good, but this was just ok. The server was very personable, but that didn't make up for the lackluster food and delays with staff helping her. Because of this experience, I probably won't go back soon as there are so many other choices in the area. I wish more restaurants took advantage of the opportunity to shine during downtown dining week instead of treating it like a burden and discouraging diners.
The brisket burritos were huge and flavorful. We had to take the cheesecake home, but it was delicious. The wings were tasty, too.
For a drink at bar and atmosphere, this place is ok. But if you are looking for good food, BBQ, etc it is not worth your time or money. If the prices were cut in half, then I would say to go ahead and have the chicken. They have several sauces to choose from and all were horrible. We decided to eat our meat with no sauce. The desserts were we're not any better. The plain vanilla ice cream, not even vanilla bean, was the best part of the dessert. Save your money! If you want good barbecue, I would recommend L D's BBQ it is great and it is at a gas station. And no,I do not work or own LD's BBQ.
Poor service -- the server could give no guidance about items on the menu and never refilled water. Mediocre food with little flavor. Strange 80s club vibe that does not mesh with the food offerings. There are lots of great places nearby; skip this one.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect with the new direction that the menu is taking since I was a fan of the previous offerings. However, the BBQ was well received at our table. I enjoyed the smoked chicken breast, my husband thoroughly enjoyed the ribs and my daughter was happy with the pulled pork shoulder.
The only issue that I do have with the menu is that it is pretty much a la carte; the sides are sold @ $4 ea. Also, for those of us who do not eat pork, the collard/mustard greens as well as the baked beans are off limits since the dishes are prepared with pork and/or pork sausage. Unfortunately, vegetarian options were not offered for these dishes.
Service was ok. I always enjoy the music selection playing.
The Skylight Cosmopolitan is absolutely delicious.
With the crisp night air, a full moon and cathedral square up front, the night was one to remember. We were there early in the evening and enjoyed a relaxing and tasty dinner before a play at the Pabst Theater.
Waitress was a gem, place was clean and the industrial atmosphere was great for all ages.
We come to downtown Milwaukee quite often and we found a gem in mikeys. Food was good and we will be back!
