Here on business trip and found one of the best local restaurants anywhere. Uncle Mick's was the friendliest place I have been in a long time. The Cajun food was out of this world! Thanks for a great meal in a great atmosphere.

To start with, they won't let you order until you've been there before and know what you want, or you've tried a bunch of things. This is a very good feature. I could have eaten anything and everything and been happy. Location is downtown in...More

Given the setting of the small town and the atmosphere of the quaint restaurant, I would say, 'no'. Alabama has some unique rules regarding sales/consumption of alcohol and to be absolutely certain, you should ask in advance.

Got an ahnvee for some Cajun cooking?

Uncle Mick's Cajun Market & Cafe is a family-owned and operated restaurant located in the heart of historic downtown Prattville, Alabama. Our Cajun food is always hot, fresh, and ready to be served.

Come as you are and enjoy authentic Cajun cuisine in our friendly, family atmosphere - where you're only "one bite away from the bayou! "Dine in" or "take-out" - the choice is yours.

Not sure about the Crawfish or Corn Maque Choux?

No problem!

We encourage our customers to sample a variety of our entrees BEFORE making that BIG decision.

Not all of our food is spicy – we have a little something for everyone.

If you prefer to "fire it up" we have our own blend of Cajun hot sauce we make right here in our kitchen.

Choose from Cajun entrees like Crawfish Etouffee, Seafood Gumbo, or a customer favorite, Shrimp a la Creme! We also have a nice selection of vegetables and desserts. We even have a child's plate for kids that don't know yet how much they LOVE Cajun spices.

We have a Private Dining Area for parties up to 30 people - call for availability and reservations. We are only 20 minutes from Montgomery, 10 minutes from Interstate I-65, 15 minutes from Maxwell AFB, and conveniently located in central Alabama within the Montgomery River Region.

There REALLY IS an "Uncle Mick"! Mickey Thompson, owner and manager, opened the doors at Uncle Mick's Cajun Market & Cafe on Mardi Gras Day in 2009, providing a piece of Southern Louisiana in the middle of "The Fountain City".

Does Uncle Mick’s really serve alligator?

Yes we do!

Ask Uncle Mick for a free sample. We promise it won’t bite!
