About Uncle Mick’s
It was 2009 when Uncle Mick’s first opened its doors on West Main Street in Prattville. With a focus on authentic-Cajun cuisine, the restaurant quickly became a favorite among locals and those just passing through town.
Owned by Mickey Thompson, Uncle Mick’s offered a cafeteria-style experience with a rotating menu of cooked-from-scratch meals, sides and desserts. It was also known for its quirky decor of unique items collected by Thompson, like mounted animal heads, old tools and irreplaceable works from local and regional artists.
But after a fire in August 2022, the eatery closed its doors. The good news is that according to the restaurant’s Facebook page, Prattville diners are just a few days and a delicious bite away from Uncle Mick’s reopening on Tuesday, February 28.
What to expect
According to the Montgomery Advertiser, Uncle Mick’s will reopen in its original location on West Main Street and will feature many items that were salvaged from the fire like a large Marlin mount, plus a some new additions such as an additional bathroom and new tables.
