Very nice dinner
We have been to Michael's several times. We decided to take 7 of our friends there on Friday night since they have not been. Overall, we were surprised by the waiter who seemed very upset with us, not sure why? Food was excellent as always. We will return, but was rather embarrassed we brought our friends to a fine-dining restaurant only to be served by a less than happy waiter.

We went for our anniversary. What a gem at the lake. Our steak was fabulous. Our sunset view amazing!

Great marinated steaks & pork
...with gorgeous overlook over Lake of the Ozarks. Outdoor dining is my fav when the weather is nice...and the sometimes live music outdoors makes it unequalled in my opinion. And if you like lima beans, they are awesome, even those in my party that don't like them, LOVED them! Always go back when I'm at the Lake! Owner Brent always stops by the table to insure everyone is happy too.

Excellant Food !
Our meal was super and waitress very nice. However, menu was limited. It would be nice if they had some salads on the menu as a main course and some items for people that are watching their weight. Some low cal healthy choices would be nice.

Staff was friendly and seated
Staff was friendly and seated us immediately. Service was great and our waitress responded to our every request promptly. The food was very good (prime rib & salmon). They have a good wine list. This is a great special occasion restaurant.

Visit when you are at the Lake
I used to only visit when I was on this end of the Lake. With the new roads I can get here quickly from Four Seasons.

Outdoor (& indoor) Dining Gem
If you haven't been here, you've missed THE al fresco/ sunset view, fine dining gem of the 'Lake! Setting is private & high up on a bluff just off KK. Prime rib a specialty, v.good & broad wine selection, good fish/sea foods & steaks, & all that goes with it...Ask for Greg to serve you (all staff are well-trained/ accommodating), reserve early & ask for a window or outdoor table...Owner(s) most always visibly (& discretely) on premises...

Great lake dining experience
We had a group of six that ate on the patio overlooking the lake on a comfortable July evening. The weather was not too warm, so it was a perfect evening for dining outside. The food was all good, flavorful, and enjoyable. Good list of wines, and we enjoyed a couple of bottles. I have been here several times and have found it to be one of the best locations for better dining on this part of the lake. It is a tad hard to find, so be sure you have good directions and have the courage to keep driving along the small asphalt county road that leads you to it.. When you take people there the first time, most of them say they never would have found it on their own.

Love this place!
A friend and I happened upon this restaurant through an Internet search. The view is gorgeous! We sat outside and had amazing service. The food was delectable. Prime Rib just melted in your mouth. The salad was delicious! Dessert was divine. Nothing fell short of exceptional!
I can't wait to go back...so good!!
As you drive to it, it seems like its off the beaten path, but just keep going, it's totally worth it!
Probably wouldn't be a place I'd take my kids. Great for all other outings and group sizes. :)

Perfect anniversary spot!
We had a fantastic experience at Michael's! Our waiter, Greg, was so efficient, kind & didn't rush us at all. The food was wonderful ... Lobster stuffed mushrooms for appetizers got us off to a perfect start! The salad was crispy & cold, very tasty followed by the prime rib which was cooked to perfection. Overall the best dining experience we've had at the lake this year!

Amazing Lake Views
Plan to go and watch the sunset over a glass of wine and the best filet I have ever eaten.

Quiet and out of the way, Michael's Steak Chalet is unique and has delicious food. Service was great and we had a party of 14! I would dine there again!

It was our celebration...
Happy Anniversary to us! We made reservations online only because it was suggested by a referral but found we didn't need to (Fri-Sat still recommended though). Yet had a wonderful meal of New York Strip steak and Prime Rib & baked potato, with appetizer (lobster stuffed mushrooms were excellent), salads, and dessert. Couldn't have been happier in our service - not too casual, formal or clingy but there when you needed someone, and the quality and taste of our meal. It was the perfect spot and ambiance for our quiet and special anniversary dinner celebration. I would certainly recommend it! We'd be happy to return and celebrate some more!

Could have been better
The Prime Rib was not served as requested and the Fried Shrimp was not that good. You now get a baked potatoe included with your meal. An improvement! Could be a great place to dine with some upgrades and improvements.

This is by far my favorite restaurant at the Lake of the Ozark, The prime rib is the best I have ever had and I love scallop Escargot puff pastry dish. The view is beautiful and the obience is very charming and romantic.

Excellent Evening on the lake.
We had a very enjoyable evening and the food was great!

Very good service & food!
We really enjoyed our meal and thought the service was great. Very reasonably priced.

Food quality very good. Generous portions. Enjoyed the view.

Wh had a large party and the staff did a great job of taking care of our every need. When we arrived, we asked if they could seat us outdoors where we could enjoy a nice summer evening and the panoramic view of the lake. They accomodated our request and had us seated very quickly. The service was efficient but not pushy. The salad was fresh and flavorful. The steak was grilled to perfection and the grilled salmon was not tender and delicious.

As local, full time residents, we always reserve Michaels as a preference for quiet dining after the crowds have returned home. Mike was an excellent server, just the correct amount of presence without being intrusive.

Excellent Prime Rib but.....
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.
