We had an absolutely wonderful experience and dinner at G. Michael's! I thoroughly enjoyed all parts of my meal, from the delicious calamari and brussel sprouts we had as appetizers to the delicious chicken deliciousness and the chocolate dessert. Service was spot on and I love the atmosphere of both the bar and the dining room.

First time experience. Enjoyed the small bar for a cocktail prior to meeting friends for dinner. Dinner was enjoyable, but not wow worthy. The brussel sprout appetizer seemed under cooked and the blue cheese didn't really work well together for me anyway. Server was good in my book because he didn't over manage us!

Had a lovely dinner at G Michaels! The entire staff was pleasant and helpful, and the food was delicious. (The chicken fried buffalo was ridiculously good as was the chili-rubbed pork.) This was our first time there, and it did not disappoint!

Our Valentines meals were delicious. We missed the notice that it was prix fixe that day but the choices were varied. My steak was perfect and sides with it well chosen. My husband’s scallops were also perfectly done.

Great Local Restaurant with Louisiana influences. Fixed Price Mondays are a great deal. Professional wait staff. Restaurant offers 4 distinct environments for dining options-bar, central area with lots of light and windows, outdoor patio, and back area with low light and incorporating the kitchen prep area.
