“Great view, great food, good service”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Mickey's is a favorite of ours. The view is fantastic. Situated right on the water, you can sit, sip a beer, and watch the boats go by, the pelicans, and the gulls. The food is always good. We have tried several different meals and have never been disappointed. On our most recent visit, we started with a dozen oysters on the half shell and a beer each. The oysters were a little on the small side, but so fresh and good, we ordered another dozen. For the meal we ordered a shrimp burger and fried shrimp plate. The fried shrimp were butterflied, big, plump, and fried to perfection. Lightly breaded, crispy and cooked just right. The slaw was light and refreshing and the french fries were thin and crispy. The nicest surprise was the shrimp burger. The shrimp burger was filled with the same shrimp being served on the shrimp platter. A lot of places serve big, nice shrimp on the platters, but when you order a sandwich, they substitute tiny, frozen (not fresh) popcorn shrimp, which is a huge disappointment. Not here. The shrimp burger had big, plump butterflied shrimp, also. It was all delicious. One thing to not is, they do not have any beer on tap, but they do have a good selection of bottled beer and a full bar. We have had the margaritas and they were also very good. All in all, you just can't go wrong. When we feel the need to relax and kick back, we head to Mickey's. There is nothing better than sitting on the water, having a beer and watching the time go by. Attire is super casual: shorts, flip flops, etc. This is a fishing crowd. By the way, this is a boat up restaurant. Take your boat, tie it up, and sit a spell. Side note: There is a regular crowd here and they lok you over pretty good when you walk in. Don't be shy. They are all nice.

“Great burgers and fries, good atmosphere for a bar”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Four of us ate here for lunch 3/11/13, and we left happy and full. The waitresses/ bartenders were friendly and full of advice about the area, the beer was cold, and the burgers and fries were huge and hot. Two of us got their spicy (grilled jalapenos) burger, and were blown away with the flavor.

“Very good except for the smoke.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Great food, fresh seafood, great atmosphere! It was cold and big garage doors closed so the smoke was bad but not enough to keep us away. Pricey but quality of food makes up for it. Will be back soon.

“Great food, Awesome view.”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

This is a secret locals spot. If you are lucky enough to find your self at the end of Ransom rd. in Aransas Pass, then you definitely must grab a bite at Mickey's! The burgers are top notch, the buns are soft and sweet, and the beef is cooked to perfection. The dinning area is three stories high and overlooks Hamptons Landing. If your lucky you can watch the fishing guides come in and show off their catch... The price of meals is not cheap, but its worth it. They also have a great bar if you just want to relax and watch the boat traffic travel on the ICW. We locals won't be able to keep Mickey's a secret anymore.

“Awesome.”

Great food. Omg. The flounder sandwich is the best sandwhich in America. And the atmosphere on the bay you cannot beat. Blackened flounder sandwhich every time I come!
