Chef Michael Lee and his sister Melissa live out a family dream at Mikey's Grill, where they hand-cut prime steaks, grill fresh seafood, and complete meals with their mother's house-made desserts. The dinner menu leans in Creole and Italian directions, opening with appetizers such as the fried polenta with Cajun shrimp sauce ($7.75), a nod to the family's Louisiana roots. Surf 'n' turf commingles with the elegance of a merman slow dancing with a cowgirl on plates of char-grilled filet mignon and Maryland-style crab cake ($29.95). Sweet marsala sauce and savory slices of prosciutto gild the chicken saltimbocca ($16.95), a flavorful combination that the Birmingham Weekly's food columnist Dee Marcus called "the finest chicken dish I have ever been served." After analyzing the lunch menu, diners can wrap hands around a sandwich lined with cured pork tenderloin ($9.50) or a crawfish po boy ($9.50), both served with hand-sliced kettle chips or sweet-potato chips. The materfamilias crafts all of the restaurant's desserts, including the bread pudding, a dish so popular she’s had to steal massive pans from Paul Bunyan's kitchen to bake enough portions.

Mikey's Grill

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.
