France’s original terms for the Louisiana Purchase imposed a 99-year crawfish taxation clause that quickly fell by the wayside, along with bi-annual Bastille storming. Celebrate modern-day Louisiana cuisine with today's Groupon for Mikey’s Grill in Hoover.
Louisiana-born and bred Michael “Mikey” Lee serves up an authentic mix of Creole dishes alongside his sister and co-owner Melissa within the confines of their laid back eatery. Choose from a menu of expertly sautéed and seasoned comestibles, such as the grilled pork chop ($11.95) or the blackened redfish ($23.75). With 30-plus years of culinary prowess under their collective Italian leather utility belt, Mikey and Melissa maintain a family-friendly atmosphere wherein catfish po-boys feel at ease canoodling with their alligator appetizer brethren. Choose from the following two deal options:
- For $7, you get $15 worth of lunch fare
- For $18, you get $38 worth of dinner cuisine
- Chicken saltimbocca ($16.95) was pronounced “the best chicken dish I’ve ever ordered!” by one diner. Topped with a sweet Marsala sauce, prosciutto and a judicious mixture of cheddar, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, the chicken was tender and very tasty. – Fletcher Harvey, Birmingham News
- Comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff and great food make this a "must try". I've tried several different entrees, all good but the best by far is the filet and crab cake. – Duc Boy, Urbanspoon
Cajun food has always played an important role in Michael and Melissa Lee’s life, from their childhood upbringing in Louisiana to their 15 years spent working at a southern seafood restaurant. The brother and sister teamed up to open Mikey’s Grill, pulling from their combined talents and years of experience to craft a menu filled with contemporary takes on classic Cajun dishes that have been lauded by reporters from Birmingham Weekly. Chef Michael “Mikey” Lee commands the kitchen, slicing steaks and grating cheese himself while ensuring only the finest seafood is used in his innovative pastas and specialties, turning away catches that aren’t fresh enough. Michael’s mother Donna can also be spotted in the kitchen, whipping up the restaurant’s freshly baked desserts from scratch and pinching any exposed cheeks in her visual range. Out in the dining hall, Melissa takes the lead, cheerfully greeting guests and captaining a team of friendly servers, who place plates of gourmet dishes, baskets of rolls, and glasses of colorful cocktails on red-clothed tables.
