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

One of the best ambience for dining in the world. Incredibly comforting service with old world waiters who have been there for decades. We had a brunch but anything would be super Much like Jacques Imo's in New Orleans

Had the seafood platter. Excellent. The food was fresh and hot. Ate on the deck overlooking the Bayou. Nice breeze, no insects.

We've stopped in Ocean Springs multiple times & always eat at Mikey's On The Bayou. It was super busy, but we only had about a 15 minute wait. Brigitte was taking care of us & did an excellent job. Food was hot & fresh & more than we could eat in one sitting. Mikey's isn't fancy, but it's a great... More

We ate here for lunch. My husband had the raw oysters and he said they were good. We had po-boy sandwiches and they were very good. Kids chicken was great. Although, they ran out of chicken fingers for the table that sat down after us.
