Service was very slow. For the prices I expect more. However, food was very good. Steaks were perfectly cooked.
They were quite crowded for a weeknight, but our 6:00 reservations, got us seated, promptly, in a booth, as requested. We went overboard and ordered 3 entrees. My husband got the braised beef short rib & the crab dip. I got the Oysters Rockefeller
and the Rockfish Nicholas, but they were out of rockfish & substituted Mahi-Mahi.
I have to admit, it was a little dry. We also ordered the crab cake platter, with fries
and slaw. Everything was superb (sans dry fish) and we can't wait to return to try other
menu items. I must say, many restaurants (no names) offer Jumbo lump crab cakes &
are famous for them.....but, these are not only Jumbo lump, but they have a seasoning
that makes them very tasty. I have always swore they have the best crab cakes. Our server, Brian, was outstanding, not only in service, but friendliness & knowledge.
Service was very poor. Had to get the manager Jeff to assist who was very nice. Only bar tenders waiting tables and had to leave the table to place wine order. Will not be back.
Will was wonderful and very attentive. Made the evening special for our family. Thank you.
I don’t like seating in the bar area. The server Laura was very nice
Food was wonderful; however, one of the guests ordered a seafood club and was delivered a "standard" club. The server was "new" and did not check back after the food was delivered by another staff member. As a result, the bill reflected the seafood club and had to be reduced since we could not locate her to address the issue in a timely manner. This is the first time that this type of error has ever occurred and hope that the server has learned from this?
The food came out quickly and tasted fresh and delicious! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and provided good recommendations.
This is a neighborhood favorite that never fails to deliver excellent food and service. We know we will never be disappointed.
Covid is taken into all the services at this restaurant.
No bread given with dinners anymore.
Food isn’t bad. Small portions for some things and very large for others. Not a place i’d go all the time but definitely good sometimes when you just need somewhere to go.
Ms Mary (our waitress) was amazing! The food was great!
From start to finish our evening out at Michael's couldn't have been any better ! Mary made sure we were well taken care of. The drinks, wine and meals were spectacular along with my companion for the evening out. Combine desserts and a couple of celebratory flutes of Champagne and that made our Anniversary memorable.
We always say Where should we go to lunch? Always go back to Michaels because food is great and service is friendly.
Food and service is consistently great at this Michael's Cafe. Have been earing here occasionally for decades.
After a slightly shaky start, and an assist from the manager, this was a fabulous dinner. I had the apple and walnut salad and a single crab cake with sweet potato fries. The salad was fantastic. The apples were crisp, the glazed walnuts balanced perfectly with the blue cheese, the field greens were fresh and the dressing was just right. I am now somewhat disheartened: this was the best crab cake I have ever had in my life, but being from another state, I may never have it this good again. My waiter Aaron rocked. I highly recommend Michael’s and now have to figure out how to arrange another trip to Baltimore so I can come back.
Come here often, always great food and service. Never have had an issue with either
Promptly seated upon arrival and greeted by server. Standard and tasty luncheon fare for our party of three. Nice to get out of the house for three seniors. Server was friendly and professional.
Perfect for the application
Our reservation was 10am and it took 15 minutes to get us seated. We did not get a menu for each adult so when I asked the hostess for 2 more she told me I could look it up on my phone. I explained I preferred a hard copy and a man intervened and gave me these. Although we were 6 it took until 1050 to be served. We had a 3 and 5 yr old with us who were getting impatient. I didn't expect this considering we were the earliest reservation. Mention of birthday and anniversary celebration was noted on the reservation but nothing was ever acknowledged by the restaurant.
Everything was delicious. Great brunch and drinks and service. Loved the outdoor seating.
The cheesecake we got to go was a bit in the small side for the price. The Salmon entree was fantastic though! B+ experience.
As always excellent food and service
The manager, Emma, was very helpful in making sure we had the best experience. She moved us to a quieter table and brought out a special treat for our anniversary.
The food was amazing. I had split level crab soup and stuffed shrimp—probably the best I have ever had.
Table for 2 was small. But we managed. Tables were a bit to close for me related to pandemic and just over all privacy.
Great food and service
Been to Michael's many times, never disappointed. Fiancé said that she had the best Eggs Benedict ever at this place.
Great ambiance my family love it one restaurant where we go and never have nothing to take back home food is delicious
It is very nice and chill place to hang out or have an event
It was good. I went for brunch and will try for dinner another time.
The 2 crabcake platter was very good. Cakes were seasoned well with not too much filling. Cole slaw was outstanding.
My burrata salad was awesome with fruit alongside and seasoned toast triangles.
We were seated in the bar area although we had reservations . COVID seating??? It was extremely loud. We will specify for the dining area next time. Quiet.
This was our first time there so we did not know this.
Benjamin our server was very good. That boy moved!!!
We will return I am sure when in the Timonium area.
Very helpful server.
In main dining room; so loud difficult to talk.
Had crab cake platter.
Have to request sauce, salt!
Cold fries/ limp
Crab cakes can not compare to
Pappas, or even Ocean Pride; would not order again
My friend & I had 3 different wines... all at appropriate temp. & ok price.
Have been to Michaels many many times before... always at lunch...
Better experiences then.
Will never try a Friday @ 5pm again.
Loved being back.
Food was good service was excellent
Just a great night, great steaks, great half price wine value, and our waitress, Danielle was superb
We go here every March 7th since we met there on March 7th 1995. Every year I make a reservation. Some times I explain the story of our meeting. But each time there is little to no celebratory fanfare. This time as we were leaving a staff member slipped a card on our table that said happy anniversary. She said nothing as she did so. How about offering a dessert to share. Or have the server at least say “happy anniversary”. We sat in the bar area in a booth so I understand our server was doing double duty - but overall this time was just an ok experience.
It was a great experience and very kid friendly we will go back to visit
Cream of Crab soup is delicious! Save room for dessert too!
Great place! Food and service were amazing. Go you will not regret it.
Food was great.
I think a bit overpriced but delish.
