We loved our evening at G. Michael's! The fried oysters were amazing as was the Chopped Salad, complete with pulled pork strips and grilled peaches. Our entrees were equally as delicious. My Sockeye salmon was delicate and served on a bed of grilled spinach and legumes. My husband's Mahi Mahi was delicious as well. The dessert, Lemon Tart, was exceptional. We attended during Restaurant Week and one of us enjoyed having the 3-course meal for only $35--a real bargain! We will be back! More
