    We were there on a Saturday for our first date night out since we had our baby back in June. NONE of the tap beer lines worked. I couldn't believe it. I also ordered the slider sampler for dinner and the inside of my burger was literally raw. I sent it back and just asked them to remove it from our bill.

    We had a reservation and still had to wait to be seated. The food arrived after we waited an hour and the hamburger was very dark on the outside , cold and raw on the inside. Two good things did happen. The desert was delicious and with all the unhappiness we experienced the server picked up the bill for our lunch. We felt the restaurant was understaffed and overwhelmed. I would really have to think twice to revisit your establishment.

    Went for lunch during Downtown Dining week. Great selections for great price! Would have preferred my salad without dressing but forgot to ask. Fish tacos were yummy but not that hot. Brownie was absolutely decadent and I tasted the strawberry rhubarb ice cream -yum!!

    We came for preTheatre drinks and dinner. We arrived early for our dinner reservation and were able to have a couple of drinks up at the bar to watch the Kentucky Derby. Our bartender, Alex, was very friendly and efficient. Our party of 6 then moved to our booth for dinner. The food came promptly and was very good. The biggest downfall was the noise while dining which made it hard to converse. However, We would not hesitate to return at another time

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
