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 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! “Y’all Come See Us!”

Me and my wife were out on a date night looking for a new place to eat. We decided to give Uncle Mick a try. We were greeted like we were long lost friends and allowed to sample everything before we ordered. The food was so wonderful that we wanted it all. The atmosphere is wonderful. It is caffertia style. W enjoyed this so much!! Thank you for making the night special !!! Johnny McNeel

We made a big effort to find this place having read TripAdvisor reviews and, while we were happy with the food and the friendly welcome, it was not the dining experience we were looking for. Dinner is a cafeteria selection of prepared dishes which were good and cheerfully presented. But there is no liquor and you are eating with plastic utensils. It was very affordable but it is a place to eat Cajun food but not to "dine." The walk over to the old cotton mill afterwards was very cool as mentioned by another reviewer.we were happy we found it but feel that the reviews were misleading by not mentioning the ambiance and lack of wine or beer.

Hi AnnandBob! We are very happy that you took the time to visit us and that you enjoyed our food and friendly service. And thank you for pointing out the short walk to the old cotton mill... it is very scenic and peaceful overlooking Autauga creek. As you mentioned, we are all about the cajun food, and we believe our café is well suited for our special cuisine. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we think many people will find it useful. Please come see us again when you are in the neighborhood.

We enjoyed our first time to Uncle Mick's! The Shrimp A La Creme was amazing! And the Bourbon Bread pudding was to die for! The icing on the cake, however, was the customer service & southern hospitality! We can't wait to go back!

Best restaurant in the river region hands down. Fantastic cajun cuisine with a great atmosphere. Great place to eat any time you are in the Montgomery/Prattville area.

Enjoyed every moment from the time we walked in to the time we walked out. The owner is an active member of his establishment. His customer service skills are off the chart. He treats everyone with such great southern hospitality. The inside of this restaurant is best decribed as southern comfort. It has so much southern charm and character. The owner and his well styled establishment made us feel so welcome. The owner offered us samples of pretty much everything he had on his bar. Now the "food"... was amazing. It was well seasoned and fresh, which for me is very important. I will say my first time eating alligator was truly an experience to remember. The meat was fall apart tender. It was also extremely juicy with all the right seasonings and paired in the perfect sauce then placed on a hot bed of rice. Just truly DELICIOUS. In my very honest opinion I personally would give Uncle Mike's Cajun market and cafe two thumbs up and 5 stars. Keep up the "AWESOME" work we will be back.
