Many improvements have recently been completed at Miceli's Restaurant, both inside and outside, as well as additions for the customers' enjoyment.
Joe Miceli said they have all new outdoor furniture, as well as a new tiki roof. The mangroves were also taken out, once permits were obtained, and the seawall was filled to provide a beautiful view for the customers, as well the installation of a black fence.
"It's awesome back there," he said.
The bar at Miceli’s Restaurant, which is sponsored by Jagermeister, recently received a new look.
Joe said new vegetation was planted where the habitat was taken away.
The front parking lot, Joe said, will also undergo improvements. He said they are currently working with the county and engineers to have it paved in the near future.
Some improvements have also been made inside the restaurant as well. The Micelis have taken out the booths and replaced them with high tops in front of the 50-inch TV near the bar.
Joe said with the new high-top table and chairs, customers can all play the Buzz Time together, which consists of a trivia and poker game. He said customers log into the Buzz Time system and play against others at a national level.
The bar was also transformed, thanks to Jagermeister, which included its logo, as well as Miceli's logo on the top of the bar and the sides.
The restaurant's services have also expanded to include a Sunday brunch. Vince Miceli said the Sunday brunch will be held every week from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. until Easter Sunday.
Another addition includes a free birthday dinner up to a $14.99 value with a valid ID, as well as a free house desert of choice. In order to receive the free birthday dinner, the guest must purchase an equal or lesser value meal at regular price.
Vince said they have also included gluten free items to the menu, as well as two gluten free beers to accommodate customers.
Miceli's bar features 22 different kinds of wine varietals, 17 of which can be purchased by the glass. There are also more than 100 different liquors at the bar.
The Happy Hour is held seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
There is also live entertainment seven days a week, instead of five last year. The first weekend of every month, Soap Box and Ground Zero will play during Jagerpalooza, which the liquor company is sponsoring.
