Description: 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 entrées 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 Étouffée, Seafood Gumbo, or a customer favorite, Shrimp à la Crème! 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! “Y’all Come See Us!”

Chicken and dumplings are so good as well as shrimp a la creme. Haven’t had a bad meal there. The staff is very friendly.

If you like Cajun, this is the place to go. It is served cafeteria style which may seem strange, but allows you to see and sample before selecting. And don’t forget the bread pudding. They’ll hold it for a bit to serve hot when you are ready. This is a “must try” if visiting in Prattville.

We were driving through the area on a tour of the South and decided to stop here based on the reviews. Had the alligator and crawfish (1/2 portion of each) along with sides of red beans and "dirty" rice. Others in the family tried the gumbo, tilapia, and various side dishes. The food was well prepared, and a particular tip o' the hat to the alligator and sausage sauce piquant. A touch of spice and great flavor. The owner and staff are very friendly and happy to let you sample before ordering. Prices were very reasonable. Four of us were stuffed for $50.

We try to find small, locally-owned places to eat, and this one is a real treasure.
