    It was our first time visiting. Service was excellent and our meals were delicious. Our server was attentive and didn't make us feel rushed, which I appreciated. We'll be back.

    Thank you, Pam. Glad you thought the food was delicious. The server Alyssa is a magnificent server and an even better person. Thank you very much these personal shoutouts go a long way with the staff.

    Always great food and service, for years. Top notch. Best Maryland crab soup in town.
    Michael's CafeResponded 3 days ago
    Thanks a lot Mike! We tell people that our MD crab as a subtle sweetness and unique savory quality that you don't get from just crab, veggies, and old bay. Come back and see us anytime my friend.

    Always enjoy my visits. Had lunch today with a couple who have been friends for decades. Service was very good as usual. Was disappointed in my chicken salad platter—not very tasty and serving size was quite small—disappointing. Long time customer-look forward to return visit but will make another selection next time.

    Thank you for letting us know. We will look into this. Have a great day.

    We dine at Michael’s often and the food is very good and the service is great. However I would not go back for the Easter buffet. The food was not up to Michael’s standards. Additionally the hostess let us know that we only had a one hour window for our table. I understand it’s a busy time but if a one hour window and the food quality being below regular standards, it felt more like a cafeteria experience. We will definitely return for regular dining, we will just go elsewhere for a holiday.
    Michael's CafeResponded on April 3, 2024
    Thank you for your review. Pains us that you did not have a great experience during our Easter buffet. We feel that the food quality matched the quality of our regular menu. We will take this note to heart for any future buffets we may serve.

    The experience was good. Michael's does an incredible job on their holiday brunch. The food assortment is very good. Our server was ok. Looked like he was struggling. I'm sure he was tired and as he said when we asked how he was doing "I wish I wasn't here since 7:30 this morning". I'm not sure that screams customer service, but we tipped him 25%. You never know what someone is going through. All in all, we would return.

    We look forward to serving you again. Our staff needs to keep it together as best they can. We try to identify these problems but sometimes they slip by us. Thank you for your review.

    We’ve dined at Michael’s Cafe before and had great experiences. That is why we chose to go there for Easter brunch with our family. They included an automatic 20% gratuity for a buffet style brunch. The waitstaff was inattentive (often talking to one another) and surly. They did not offer a drink menu when asking for a drink order and we had to get their attention several times when we needed anything. Very disappointed with the overall experience given the price we paid.
    Michael's CafeResponded on April 3, 2024
    There's no excuse for this. This is not what we expect out of us either. Thanks for your time.
