Tried to sit at a make shift table in the corner on the backside of the bar. We refused and end up at a high table in the small bar area. Took 15 minutes before a server came to our table. Once we ordered and it arrived the food was good...until in walks a lady carrying a small dog (claiming it to be her companion animal) and sits directly in front of us. To sum this up: I have been coming to this resturant for over 20 years, when it was Poor Billy's. Management has changed a few times and each time, it gets worse. Sadly to say, this was our final visit to Chris Michaels.

Our waiter was very attentive and the food came out fast. We had calamari for appetizer. I got the special which was filet mignon with shrimp, green beans & truffle fries. My husband got the Braised Beef Short Ribs. Our sides were Garlic Mash and Mac & Cheese. Wish we had room for dessert. Will definitely recommend and come back!

We waited 15 minutes without any service (the restaurant had 3 other table seated). I approached some staff standing around and asked for service. I would not recommend this venue.

Our server was so nice. We were just disappointed that the lounge wasn’t open so we had to go to a local strip club just to hear music…. Oh well hopefully they open the lounge again soon

I would give five stars but we had a 7:30 reservation for Friday 2/11 and had to wait an additional 30 minutes. If you have to make your parties wait with a reservation you should either not accept reservations or limit them. I will return but will call the restaurant themselves and not use OpenTable for a reservation.

We made a reservation for 7:30 only to be told they were at capacity and we would have to wait for a table to open, not sure why they even take reservations. Went to the bar ordering off the menu that we saw online which we were told was very outdated. Had a table behind us that was either owners or higher up managers yelling, curing and just being extremely loud while were getting drinks. The manager who did come to our table and our server were great but overall not a great experience when you are paying 200+ dollars for a dinner

After the food was brought to our table, our waiter didn’t even check to see how things were - which is basic hospitality. I understand staffing shortages but there is no excuse for our waiters poor service.

Thank God the waiter asked us if we wanted salt and pepper because there was absolutely none on the steak. best part of the meal was the creamed spinach. Don’t think i’ll be back again.

All came out perfect. I would definitely come back for more. Ambiance, eh could have been alil more romantic, date, type of place but it is what it is. Its a good chill spot if anything. They were severely understaffed BUT they pulled through and got everyone orders right. That was the best part. I was soo hungry, i forgot to take pics.

The first drink we ordered was disgusting (new fashioned) and the waiter had to ask if he could change them, the manager came and he was asking how do we know it’s nasty? Very weird he did change them after. Aside from this we enjoyed, the atmosphere was nice.
