Food was extremely good & service outstanding. First time I had Rock Fish and it was excellent. My husband had crab cake & ribs which was equally outstanding.

Slow service , skimpy sandwiches is not the Michael’s i know and love. It must be the trying times all restaurants are experiencing. I’ll be back but not for a while.

Food was very disappointing. We love going to Michael's and was disappointed in this visit. It took over 30 minutes to get our food and we never received the soup we ordered. We were there for Brunch. My meal was sausage gravy and biscuits. It tasted like the kitchen dumped all the salt they had on my meal. My wife wanted extra crispy bacon and got cold, fatty, limp bacon. Our potatoes were cold. The waiter kept apologizing about the wait times but we never heard from the manager. The tables next to us had conversations on speakerphone the whole time. It was not enjoyable and an expensive brunch.

We ate in the main bar area. The food and service was good and we'll go back. The air conditioning was really cold, though, and it made it difficult to get really comfortable.

We’ve dined at Michael’s many times, and the food and service was always excellent.
Yesterday, I got a reservation using your website.
I specifically requested standard (not bar, not high top) seating.
I also mentioned that we were coming fit my wife’s 65th birthday, and asked for that to be noted.
When we arrived, we were warmly greeted, and PROMPTLY TAKEN TO THE BAR TO BE SEATED AT A HIGH TOP.
I told the hostess I had requested to be seated at a table in a dining room, where she then led us.
The food and service after that were up to your normal high standards, but no mention was made of my wife’s SIXTY-FIFTH BIRTHDAY.
I was expecting more.
If your staff doesn’t pay attention to the requests on your website, then maybe you should just take phone reservations.
Not happy.
Pretty much let down.

This was an excellent experience. They seated us promptly, the food was excellent, and the server was attentive but not intrusive. They even read the note from open table that it was our anniversary and they made sure to acknowledge it without us bringing it up. I look forward to returning soon.

Grew up in Balto. When come back from California, always stop at Micheal's at least once for crab cakes. Yummy. Thanks Sherry for being a great server.

This was a birthday celebration and it did not disappoint. The Blue Point Oysters were sooo fresh! Everything was tasty. Took a while to get appetizers, but the owner apologized and made it right. Only drawback is that you have no choice other than cheesecake for your b-day complimentary dessert. I don't do much dairy. Will definitely return.

The seating in the bar area is loud, as to be expected, the middle section is quiet so make sure you request it when making a reservation if you that is what you prefer. Food is always excellent and so is the service!
