After being greeted with a 2 1/2 hour wait at another local dining spot, we called Mikee's and asked if they could accomodate a party of 16. Our hot and tired group of four families showed up 10 minutes later and were greeted by two waiters dedicated to our table. We were not an easy group to manage with 8 kids and 8 adults, but they took care of us as well as we could hope for and turned a trying night into a very enjoyable one. We sampled many appetizers: fried crab claws, fried crab cakes, fried jalapeno strips, potato skins, and the cheese bread - and reports from up and down the table gave thumbs up for everything but the cheese bread of all things. I personally loved the jalapeno strips and crab cakes, both fried and grilled. I ordered one of the 'catch of the day' choices on the board: blackened snapper, and topped it with the chef's special topping which included crawfish and shrimp. It was not too rich or creamy (which was good) but very flavorful, fresh and the fish was perfectly spiced. I shared my wife's grilled crab cakes and they were also very tasty. My wife's margarita was good, my beer was cold and both reasonably priced - as was the food. The dining room was a bit loud with all of the other families dining, but as long as you aren't expecting a quiet, intimate setting it was not a downer. On the whole, the folks at our table that ordered the grilled items were more impressed with their food than the ones who ordered the fried platters and poboys. We were all too full to order desert, but it looked like they had a couple of nice choices. After dinner we walked next door for a rousing game of putt-putt golf ($5 each) and the course was challenging for a mini golf course - and quite fun, and waaaay less crowded and less expensive than some of the other courses we investigated in the area. All in all, I would happily recommend Mikee's to any families who don't relish the long waits they can expect at some of the better know flagship type establishments in Gulf Shores.
