Diner Reviews
  • "This is a special place. We enjoy the food, the view, the professionalism. Order the prime rib and have them "French" it for you. A place you will always remember."

  • "Michael's was the perfect starting event for our Girls Weekend at the Lake. The five of us met for dinner and drinks intent on watching the sun set over the water. Mandy, our waitress, was absolutely the best making suggestions on everything and even taking the phone to direct members of our party to the restaurant. While it was the beginning of the hottest weekend of the summer the staff was determined to make us comfortable and brought out a fan to help with the heat so we could remain outdoors. Not one complaint from anyone in the group on our food selections. Everything was simply delicious and the portions were large. We will definitely return."

We walked right in and were seated immediatly and all of the staff were very accomodating and friendly. Would recommend this to adults wanting a relaxing evening at the lake!"

  • "Our large dog was not happy being left in our vehicle and managed to force the window out and exit the truck. The staff at Michael's Steak Chalet were very accomodating with first alerting us to the escaped dog, cleaning the glass from around our truck and inside our truck and permitting our dog to sit with us on the patio while we dined. The staff was exceptional. The primary staff member that helped us was a chef who was on property on his day off! He was exceptional!"

  • "Went for a special occasion with a special date. Ordered the blackened tuna rare. It was sashimi grade and absolutely melted in my mouth. Undoubtedly the best tuna I have ever had. We were inside next to a window overlooking the lake at sunset. It was beautiful and peaceful and romantic. Would recommend for date night out or a weekly event."

  • "Michael's has been a favorite of mine for years. We made our reservation thru Open Table and they had our table ready the minute we walked in. Our server was friendly and greeted us fairly promptly. That may have been the best part of her service. She was very nice but also very forgetful. We had to ask for food that she forgot....more than once. She was not attentive to our table as you would expect in a restaurant of this caliber. It was my husband's birthday and he specifically chose Michael's but we were all disappointed. The food [when we finally got all of it] was very good."

  • "Excellent food, excellent service, best view on the lake, well worth it! Our friends said their steaks were the best they ever had. My husband had prime rib and it was perfect. I had the port tenderloin with plum sauce - amazing! They even had a list of specials that made it very reasonable."

  • "This is one our favorite choices for summer evening patio dining at the lake. Several improvements have been made to the patio which is now more open. The prime rib continues to be the entree of choice. Service improvements have been made by Brent & Biggie and the addition of Suzie & Don Ackers as lounge entertainment is a perfect cap to a wonderful evening."

    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "you just can't beat the steaks here and huge baked potatoes, I like the fact that they offer veggies other than green beans, like lima beans or peas, they have a very nice wine list and the limited availability list has some real steals, the view is the best at the Lake as it is high on a bluff above the Lake in a wooded park like setting with a Swiss Lodge feel. If you come when Tan Tar A is having their fireworks display you have a fantastic seat for the event"

  • "Took my wife to Michaels for her birthday along with the rest of our family. The food was good for all. The scenic view for the outdoor dining is fantastic."

  • "This is a great place for any sort of dinner out. Upscale casual or a formal event. Menu prices do not reflect high quality meals and drinks. Great value."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Prime Rib 12 oz. (6 oz. was fat). Chicken breasts with vegetables and sauce. Chicken was tough and sauce tasted peculiar No ambiance. Not the Michael's Steak Chalet we once knew. Server was very friendly. Michael's has not updated their restaurant since 2006 when we last dined there. Would not return."

  • "Love your Thursday night specials! The service, food & view cannot be beat! We did sit outside because the weather was perfect, however there was a couple smokers that were sitting up wind to us & that was not good because none of our group like smoking especially while you are trying to eat. Wish you had a no smoking policy."

  • "My wife and I have been going to Michael's at least once a year for ten years for our wedding anniversary. We usually end up dining there once or twice a year and it's always a good experience. The prime rib is very consistently great. I have had the rib eye there as well and it is also always high quality although a bit pricey. The view is outstanding. There must be an 8 mile long view of the lake from 100-150 feet above. I highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Our party of 8 had a reservation for 7PM last night. We had all dined there many times and had always been so happy with the restaurant until the last time we went but decided to go back for another try since we love prime rib and they used to have the best. After being seated, we were told that they had no prime rib (at 7:00 on a Thursday?). And, our server, Mike, was very rude about it and had a huge chip on his shoulder the He said "nothing" . We asked where Ronnie, our favorite bartender and employee was and were told curtly that she was just "gone" after 15 years. Some things were definitely going on at the restaurant and things were so tense that our evening was ruined. All couples said they won't go back. Sad."

  • "One of the Lake of the Ozark's finest restaurants. It may be a little difficult to find and off the main path, but Michael's is truly a premiere restaurant. Their prime rib is absolutely the finest, beating out most steak restaurants. The view overlooking the lake is beautiful and romantic. If the weather is nice, I'd recommend eating out on the patio. The service is always outstanding."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We had a business dinner with customers and wanted to enjoy an evening a great food and service. None of us were disappointed. The escargot and stuffed mushroom appetizers were excellent. Our main courses consisted of two different steaks and two different seafood dishes. Suffice to say that there were no leftovers."

  • "We had our Valentines Dinner this year heir. The restaurant is a little off the better path, but well worth it. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant had a wonderful family feel. The menu is simple but elligant. We really didn't have any complaints."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great steaks. Went there for Valentines's Day with another couple. The ladies had filets and couldn't rave about them enough. My friend and I both ordered the prime rib but they were out. (there was a large crowd there due to the holiday and we had an 8:00 reservation). We ordered ribeyes and they were perfect. The service was provided by Ronny who usually bartends but you couldn't tell. She was right on top of it. Over all it was an excellent evening. We think Michael's is the best restaurant in the lake area. We have lived at the lake for 10 years and have been coming to the lake since we were very young."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were told (by phone) at this time of year (October) they only cook 1/2 of a prime rib every day and we should be there between 5 & 6 or they may run out. We made reservations for 5 and we both got our melt in your mouth prime rib. Our server was very good and we enjoyed our meal with an awesome view and sunset. I can't wait to go back on our next trip."

  • "My husband and I like to visit Michael's when it is the right temperature for outdoor dining. We requested patio seating. There are tables with a lovely view on the lower patio but we were not seated there. We suspect the staff does not like to service these tables because they must go up and down steps! Nice obstructed view from the upper patio and nice ambiance. Rhonda was a delightful server. Would have appreciated a "petite" or ladies entree option and a larger salad. Please note that this is primarily a steak lovers restaurant. Because we love the quiet setting and the view (well, partial view!) we will return again for a bottle of wine and maybe just appetizers next time."
