Mikie’s Pub 5135 S. Emerson Ave. (revisit)

We visited this place 4 years ago, I really enjoyed the place but I live too far to enjoy it regulary. The place has changed owners but they have kept the style that I found so compelling the other time. A large menu with an emphasis on all things meat. I understand that they are changing the menu again, removing some items and adding new.

Their big food special that day was a 6 ounce filet with shrimp scampi, 2 sides and Texas toast for $10.50.

It was as good as the first time I went. A wonderful piece of steak; tender and juicy coupled with a half-dozen 21-25 count shrimp in a garlic and butter sauce. The sides I opted for were a side salad and mushrooms.

The salad was large and the addition of cheese was a nice surprise. The mushrooms were a standard pre breaded type that you can get in most bars.

Pat and I both ordered mushrooms but he ordered coleslaw. They use Grandmas brand which is his favorite. Mine too.

So Mikie’s Pub is definitely a great place to go for food and a few drinks. I really want a joint like this on my side of town.

  1. I like this place, also. I’ve done a few shows here, back to the days when it was known as a couple of other names…Rehab was one of them, I believe. I remember the wings being EXCELLENT!!

    • The first time we ate there I had a steak and Pat had the breaded tenderloin and I do remember that the breading came off while he ate it. He still liked the taste of it though. I feel as though I must go back once more to try their pecan smoked pork shoulder bacon.

    • Yep. Of course that day it was 24 degrees. However we are told to expect 60 degrees by the weekend. Yay.
