The food is good I would recommend eating their lunch specials very good quality at a great price. The service is always friendly. My only complaint is the smell of the bayou and raw oysters. But I'm sure that doesn't bother most folks since the restaurant is located on the bayou.

A dozen for $5!! Tasted great and atmosphere really relaxed. Not going to appeal to you if you like tablecloths and candlelight but we love the local joints so you shouldn't miss this if you feel the same.

Our first stop on this year's Gulf Coast vacation was a little disappointing. Each year I scout out places to eat for our journey and settled on this place as our opening act. I knew going in that it was not known for it's ambiance but more for it's food and views. True to that assumption, the place does not... More

Started with oysters and finished with roast beef. Nothing fancy but dang good seafood! Can't wait to come back

Don't judge a book by its cover....when we rolled up we paused then noticed a full parking lot. So in we went and didn't regret it at all. Best priced oysters in the Bayou and the only place we visited during our trip that shucked them properly. The crawfish was outstanding which matched the service. It would be a dis-service... More

This place was recommended by a local who advised us it was the best place around for oysters. The food was indeed very good but service was slow. I'm not sure how they pass inspection with food and drug or whoever is in charge of cleanliness. It is old and has a baithouse atmosphere as well as a dilapidated look... More

Don't let the aging facade and interior stop you! Get a seat on the porch overlooking the bayou, order the fried shrimp platter and a beer and find your bliss. Love this place and will be back. Precious, helpful server put this experience over the top for us.

Looking for the local hole in the wall? This is the place! Come straight off your fishing boat and get a dozen oysters for $5 or $10 (depending on the season) and a bucket of beer. Can't beat that!

We were told this place was a great place to eat, wrong. The service was terrible, the food was nasty. The crawfish was over cooked, tough. The baked potatoe was cold, the butter wouldn't even melt. Told the waitress and her comment was the butter just came out of fridge. Thought it usually does. My steak was warm and full... More

I had not heard of Mikeys, but figured I would give it a shot. If you don't pay attention you might miss it, it's on the side of the draw bridge on the road that goes down to the boat launch under the bridge. So at first glance, I was thinking this is going to be good. The view is... More
