Made reservations due to the holiday weekend, but not necessary. Arrived early and they still accommodated the two of us. Would have preferred not to be seated by the front door. Otherwise everything was quite enjoyable. Properly attentive waitress, even the owner asked us how we were doing! I would return with friends as a meeting place for fun.

Have been a fan of Michaels 20+ yrs
Have been enjoying the great food and reasonable prices at Michaels since the early 90's. I actually met my husband there on a set up date in 1995. We go back every year on that date for dinner and have even brought our 2 kids with us at times. Can't wait to see what it looks like after the new expansion!! So happy to see a neighborhood owned restaurant thrive and stay in business and GROW when so many others are closing their doors. THANKS MICHAEL'S!!

Another solid performance
Michael's is always a good experience. The menu is expansive and there are always good specials (although sometime the server needs to be prompted to share them ) The food is always well prepared and the service is impeccable. The bar is a tad on the noisy side but the dining room is very acceptable.
Our prime ribs were outstanding. My companion's baked potato was undercooked and cold, but was quickly and cheerfully replaced.

Becoming a favorite
Michael's Cafe is fast becoming a favorite. I am a total foodie and often try new places all the time. When I find a place I really like, I usually take my mom and sister. My mom is hard to please and I've taken her to the best of the best, and Michael's is the one place she's asked me to take her to often. That's saying a lot! They have great specials and the food is delicious! Service is alwys great too!

Get table for better service
This was my first time at MIchael's. I was asked was a booth alright, I said ok not knowing there was a difference in table setting. All the tables have white table cloths and the booth had none. The tables were also set with water glasses, bread plates and other settings. None of this at the booth, bread plates were in a stack and slivewere in a napkin. It's really no big deal unless you are going out and want the feeling of fine dinning. Which I was looking for.
The food was good and service was fine. I will go back I have a better understanding of what booth and table seating mean at Michaels.

Reliable neighborhood place
The food is what one would expect for the type of place- wholesome and good quality. The salmon however was bit overcooked, the cesar salad was good and fresh. Our young waiter was excellent, courteous, very attentive and knew the menu very well.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great place for girlfriends to meet for lunch since the food and service are good and we are never rushed when we want to stay and chat.

Surf and Turf salad, YUMMY!
I have been going to Michael's for years during restaurant week for this salad and just learned last year you can order it all year long. It's not on the menu, and a bit pricy, but oh so yummy and worth it!
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were enjoying our meal
We were enjoying our meal and environment, until the tables around us were being turned over and the bright light from the outside was showing the dust particles in the air when the table cloths were being changed. It was quite a shock and a bit upsetting to see. My friend that came from Columbia to try this restaurant, was feeling stuffing nosed and then was able to figure out why, She travels the world and was turned off after that. I have to say, I was quite embarrassed to recommend this restaurant and see that happen.
Otherwise, the food was good.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
first -time experience
We found the service very good, except for a snafu... my wife and I decided to wait at the bar until we were called; when we were called to our table, another couple was seated ( they were promised first ) this left us without seats because we obviously we lost our seats at the bar. So after calmimg down, it wasn't long before we were given a booth.The table service was very good and the meal was excellent, we'll be coming back again.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I felt like the hostess was disrespectful. She asked if my friend (a grown man) if he needed a children's menu. He was very offended.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The waitress was outstanding while the food was excellent. This outing was to celebrate a birthday, everyone was impressed all the way around
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was outstanding. The staff is kind and helpful and the food was just wonderful. We have been there many times and the food is always good.

I made a reservation online for 6 on the day of the dinner and changed it to 8 shortly before we were due. When we arrived the table had been set up for 8 as requested. The restaurant is expanding with a new addition but there was no work going on when we were there. The noise level was low enough that we could carry on a conversation and the person at each end of the table could talk to each other without shouting, which is not always the case in many of the restaurants I've visited. Everyone enjoyed the food. The filet Oscar was delicious and perfectly cooked. We were celebrating a birthday and the waiter brought my friend a piece of cheesecake with a candle. It was a lovely evening with friends and great food!

Great find in a new area
Im new to the area and a friend camp to town want good seafood. Needless to say, Michaels was a HOMERUN!!! We both love the food. In fact I went back again the same week with my husband for date night.

Always a great dining experience everytime we go to Michaels!!!!

I came here with a friend
I came here with a friend I only see three times a year. Our server was welcoming, had great suggestions and let us linger and talk. I've been here many times and I keep coming back.

Warm and welcoming place with good food on a consistent basis! Always good service with knowledgable servers! A good place to enjoy watching local sports teams.

Comfortable seating in small
Comfortable seating in small or larger settings. They are remodeling so a small part of the restaurant was unavailable. Service was good and friendly without being annoying. We plan to revisit.

Maryland Crab Soup To Die For...
We had a casual meal in the bar while listening to a live band Friday night. Service was excellent, even when tough for the waiters and waitresses to navigate the crowd. It was a packed house and the table of 4 got their food timely. Maryland crab soup made the authentic way...gourmet salads great..and the crab cakes out of this world! Rumor has it the owners are Greek...I would love to see some authentic Greek dishes weaved into the menu...if this rumor proves to be true!

Awesome brunch menu
I think Michael's has a great brunch menu but I really love their eggs Benedict. The Fried Green Tomato Benedict and the Spinach Benedict are awesome. Their Bloody Mary's are very tasty, the service is good,and the people friendly.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love their burgers!
I just had the best, most juicy big burger that I have had in a long time. Half- price burger night is well worth the trip to Michaels.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The stuffed shrimp 4 count special!!!!! The largest shrimp with the best stuffing that I have ever tasted.

We both enjoy the dinner could give a few more of the stuffed mushroom, and put the bufflo osyters back on the menu my husband loves them, Thank you for being so throughful of our anniversary please keep up the good work.

Nice cafe with good food
Michael's Cafe is always a nice place to visit. It offers a wide variety of meals sure to please everyone. We tried the calamari which came with a light Thai sauce and Marinara sauce. There was a lot of calamari, cooked just right. Our friends got the fried oysters, lightly breaded and tasty. My husband chose the crab cakes, considering the high price for them I would have expected jumbo lump. I ordered the Broiled Orange Roughy with lemon butter sauce. As expected, it had a lemon butter flavor, but had to go back as it was raw and still cold in the middle. Our waiter, a young Pakistani an which I can not spell his name was super friendly and extremely attentive. Next time I go, I will definitely request him as our waiter.

Great Sunday Brunch
The food was wonderful and the service was outstanding. We had a large group but it all worked out.

Football with Michael's!
Michael's always satisfies and is a pleasure to visit because all the personnel are so welcoming and attentive to their customers' requests. Leslie, the hostess has star quality!

Glad I came back
I had a shrimp salad sandwich and it was delicious! Very spicy with old bay and good helping. Took awhile to get drink refills which was annoying but overall had a great experience. Will go back.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extensive appetizer menu--we shared three seafood appetizers--all were excellently presented and prepared! Seafood dinners were well portioned with jumbo-sized shrimp, scallops and crab cakes! Service was excellent; however, the dining room was somewhat noisey, and parking is difficult--recommend valet parking. Live music in the bar, but VERY crowded, so we didn't stay!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been going to Michael's for years and it has been several years since there has been a thing to complain about. High quality, excellent seafood and meat, and nice comfortable atmosphere. Nice wood tones décor in front dining room and atrium style back dining room. Popular bar area with entertainment and good happy hour deals. Still one of the best crabcakes around. Always feel good recommending this place.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Caring staff serving creative food
Our brunch was made most enjoyable by the caring staff. From accomodation of an elderly guest to the pacing of our meal the service was very good. The menu had something on it for everyone for brunch...from crusty waffles to the varieties of eggs and seafood combinations everyone found something to enjoy. Special touches included the bourbon maple syrup served with the Fried Chicken and Waffles and the pecan caramel sauce on another waffle. Thanks for a good brunch. We will be coming back to try the softcrab eggs benedict!

Always love Michaels and almost always get the crabcake

Friday Night HotSpot
The atmosphere was energetic and the menu was expansive. It was a perfect spot for drinks, apps, and dessert while hearing some good music.

Michael's Sports Bar
Loud, energetic and intense. Great seafood dishes: Stone Crabs, Soft Shell Crabs, and a great lobster/crab cake. Wine list is good and not over-priced. Good service. If you don't mind the "in" place feeling and energy, this place is fun. For a person with east coast ties, the seafood is reason enough to visit. Not a place for a marriage proposal, but who cares?

Great Saturday Night
My parents and I celebrated their 54th wedding anniversary last Saturday night. The night was fantastic! The atmosphere was open and airy yet quietly peaceful at the same time. The food was really good! The service was outstanding! Terri D was our server and was exceptional. She was friendly, helpful, and efficient without being intrusive. The hostess, Jennifer, was so nice! An manager, Mike or Mark (sorry for brain cramp) stopped by our table, asking us about both our meal and overall experience. Over all, just a special evening!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I always have a wonderful experience whenever I dine here. The food and service was terrific!

Outstanding crab cakes
What an outstanding dinner. We had a mixed group from Texas, Florida and Tennessee as well as local. Everyone raved about the crab cakes and one of our Texas companions said the Rib Eye was the best he has ever had ! The service was outstanding Marry was a great host ! Thank you very much and all of the local group will be back often !
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Michael's never let's me down. From a quick casual Shrimp Salad Sandwich at lunchtime to a Prime Rib Dinner in the evening. Consistent and always a pleasant dining experience.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Michele's never fails to impress, with their food, their service and their attention to detail! Thanks for making my moms 71st birthday dinner a fine experience.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Quiet and good
We needed a quiet table, and Michael's stepped right up in a part of the restaurant we didn't even know was there. We noticed none of the hubbub of a normal lunchtime in a busy restaurant, so were able to enjoy a "Steve's Robin Burger" each. (It's not really made from a robin!) Our server kept our coffee full and was uncommonly attentive.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
My friend and I had a very good meal...our waiter was excellent.......but the area where we were seated was the pathway to and from the kitchen and they put several large tables on either side of us.......noise level made it difficult to talk.. Since we had a reservation we we disappointed.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always Delicious and Reliable!
My wife wanted to be taken to Michael's for her birthday. We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Her broiled crab cake and my fried oysters were delicious, as usual. Server Erin was excellent, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We will be back.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
love this place!
The food is always good here. My friends and I love coming here for our get togethers.
