Great Happy Hour Menu,Great Drinks ,Great Prices,Great people, You got to try the calamari and make sure you dunk the bread in it that's the best part and you can't leave Mickey's without trying a espresso martini you will not be disappointed trust me.

For a gourmet dining experience, I recommend Mickey's. This restaurant has a menu full of creative dishes and daily specials that are outstanding. Happy hour is 4-6 pm during which you can enjoy food and drink for half price.

This was a quick stop as we drove through town. Service was very good. Food was ok. We had the calamari that other reviewers raved about. It was good, not great. Nice flavor but not crispy... a bit soggy.

Stopped for lunch and sat at the bar. Nice selection of beer and wine. Soups and appetizers were perfect for a quick break in the day. Parking out back is easier with the other stores which have left this part of Hamden. Worth a visit! We did not stay for the evening music but nice to know they have entertainment.

We went here for dinner based on the reviews and the menu. Mickey's is kind of "tucked away", I guess you have to know it's there. The decor + ambience are modern + kind of upscale. We were a party of 3, we ordered an antipasto, a chopped Med salad, lamb chops, seared scallops and the short rib dish. All... More

We like this place; we want to like it more than we do! The menu is large and varied and has some excellent selections. The service is attentive and reasonably efficient, yet with some lapses. We hate to nit-pick, but this is one of the more expensive restaurants in Hamden and it clearly aspires to great heights. Our expectations are... More

My first time to Mickey's. Friends and family have been regulars since it opened. The menu is terrific, the preparation and presentation was terrific. I had the pork chop Milanese. Perfectly cooked with wilted spinach. The Caesar salad was very good. Drinks were great. The only negative to the entire evening is the "entertainment" they had on a small stage... More

Three of us dined here. We had the calamari appetizer which was very good. Salads were tasty. There are a number of specials, which you should hear out before making a final selection. Rib eye steak was excellent, nicely seasoned and a good value, served with choice of vegetable (we chose steamed broccoli) and mashed potatoes. Hangar steak was also... More

Mickey's is certainly not the fanciest place in the world, though it's a perfectly good, reasonably attractive informal restaurant. We have eaten here a few times and always been impressed by the food. A butternut squash ravioli with brown butter sauce was outstanding, and all their pasta has been good. They have a broad selection, including a very good lamb... More
