Michael’s menu has a lot of options. They have good crab cakes. Service is friendly and efficient as the servers work as teams.
Love this place. Best spot in Timonium. Service is super. Menu is varied and lots of choices. Love it.
Food is always good here and ambiance is Great there was a wedding reception going on which we didn't mind at all as the we liked the music. There were not many tables in the restaurant so we were surprised by the length of time it took to get our entrees out to us. The waiter did not come by to check on us or offer bread or other drinks. He was polite but the only downside we felt was the time it took to get our food given not that many people in the restaurant eating.
Very nice place for a birthday brunch. Food was great but took awhile to be served
Good food on matter which selection is made. Great portions and wonderful service...
My family and I had the New York strip steaks and filet mignon steak and they were cooked to perfection! My kids loved the food and LOVED the desserts. We will definitely be back!
Michael’s is a restaurant that we always enjoy. Their lobster dinner is the absolute best in town. Their shrimp salad and crab cakes are also delicious. The service is quite good. The servers are competent and very friendly. I do wish they would add moscato to their wine list. That would be perfect!
We have been here several times and it has been five star every time except last night. Dinner for 4 Service took forever. At least 30 min before the adjoining couple was asked for drinks and our app order. We were there 3 hours!!! 44.00 steak was fatty. Two sides were forgotten and the waitress ran the credit cards for a split check incorrectly and basically blamed it on us. Came back to triple check which cards to be ran out of spite. Very disappointing experience. I understand places are busy on a Saturday night, but it should be staffed accordingly and when you have a 236.00 check for 4 people, it should be stellar. It's going to be awhile before we come back.
A white tablecloth restaurant with great food, great service in a relaxed, cozy setting.
Must of been a shift change, but the service was slow.
We have loved Michael's for years and it has been our go to spot in Baltimore. We've eaten the salads, fish, crab cakes and sandwiches, all of which have always been fantastic until last night. Our dinner there last night was about the worst meal I've ever eaten. Prime rib was the special and I ordered the large cut. The slice I received did not look like prime rib. For that matter, it barely looked like meat. I had asked for a medium rare slice and instead had an overdone slice that I had troubles cutting it was so tough. Someone must have mistakenly dropped a bottle of salt on the piece because in addition to being tough it was too salty to eat. Unlike our previous visits, our waitress was nowhere to be found and I didn't want to slow down my husband's dinner while I waited for our waitress to come by so I could ask for another piece. By the time our waitress came around, my husband was finished with his crab cakes and she was trying to get us to order dessert. It will be a long time before we go back to Michael's.
We went to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We had such a great time and the food was delicious!
Michael's is conveniently located in Towson MD not far from I-695 and I-83. Waitresses have always been friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Although we do have our favorites, we have never been disappointed with a meal at Michael's.
Excellent server. Great food. Good value
Tasty food and great service. Michael’s is consistently good.
Good menu, very good food, lively environment, great for dining with friends or celebrating a special occasion.
When we arrived the restaurant was crowded. Glad we made reservations. Food was excellent . Nice brunch selection. Our table chose brunch as well as lunch items. The fish selection was wonderful. Crab cakes were delicious. Our waiter attended to our every need. Water and drinks were refreshed as needed. I would return here often.
Excellent seafood. The Cream of Crab soup is the best, but there is a lot of other good food too!
Nice atmosphere. Good food.
Good food. There is a relatively new menu. The shrimp salad was really good. I do miss the seared tuna that was always really good too. Pleasant, fast service. We'll be back.
Michael's was wonderful as always! The prime rib was delicious. The service was terrific.
Great food as always - server was personable & pleasant!
My waitress was horrible. She wouldn’t even look at me and talked to the other person I was dinning with and completely ignored me. Incredibly rude and I’m not sure I will be returning.
Thanks to the waitress for finding a lighter for our birthday candles! If that wasn't enough she brought a slice of fabulously creamy cheesecake with candle lit. Sweet.
The only problem I had was our meal call for short ribs, mashed potatoes & carrots in a sauce , but we received short ribs with rice pilaf!!! We were told they changed the mashed potatoes to rice pilaf! The waiter told us they just put that back on the menu, but with rice pilaf I think they’ll be taking it off again!!!! Just a little disappointed! Most of the time, I’m pretty happy with, Michael’s Café!!!🤔
Great food at reasonable price
Good food and service, just more expensive than I planned.
It was great. We were there for Valentine's day so I got a rose and a little box of chocolates!
Nice decor, great service and good food (the stuffed shrimp was delicious)!
Uneven service, food, drink (wine was expensive by glass with small pours). Asked to be put in a quiet out of the way table to catch up with old friends (on reservation and reconfirmed on the phone). We were then put out in a sort of a walkway next to or into the kitchen or service room? Loud (dropped dishes, etc.) and was not what I wanted / expected. Described as elegant / casual dining - didn't get the elegant part? Not quite sure what the owners are going for?
PS - great Maryland / Baltimore historical photos on the walls near bathroom and entrance.
party of 6 - everyone's food was very good, but portions a bit small for the price.
Good food, good service.
Brunch was great
Excellent food especially the crab dishes, outstanding service at a fair price
We had a great time, met at the sports bar(they have two) an hour before our dinner reservation and enjoyed a few drinks. The noise level was such that you could engage in normal conversation. Staff was friendly and provided fast service. When we sat for dinner the booth was very roomy and the atmosphere elegant but not over the top. Food was FANTASTIC, we had a variety of the food it it was all great!
We didn't like our food, it was cold and lack flavor. Very crowed and loud. Service suck.
Good food. Restaurant week options good choice. Friendly service. Accommodating and pleasant. Nice table.
My wife and I decided it was time for a "Date Night!" We like Michael's, and have been going there for years. Our waitress, Mary, was attentive and informative. A young man saw to it that my coffee mug was always full (I am a coffeeholic!) and that our plates were removed promptly. We needed to carry some of the food home, and it was placed in plastic and a paper bag for us. Some restaurants just hand you the container. Our visit was during Baltimore County Restaurant Week, and my wife ordered from that menu. She was well pleased with her choices. I order the Prime Rib Special, and started off with baked oysters wrapped in bacon. Sounds simple, but the taste was elegant! Our only glitch was with my Wife's cocktail. It just wasn't right. She specified a "C.C. Manhattan on the Rocks. " What was delivered was some sort of variation. Manhattans are not supposed to have bubbles, and it was served in a glass that was quite large for a Manhattan, and lacked the traditional cherry. Not to her liking, our waitress Mary whisked it away. Someone else obviously mixed the replacement drink, as it was perfect. We've never had a bad meal at Michael's, and we will certainly return.
Chicken was over cooked. Great service! Other Food was great.
Dinner with two friends. Promptly seated upon arrival. Friendly and professional server. Tasty raw oysters and salads as starters followed by lobster cake, broiled salmon and fried oysters. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. Key lime pie and bread pudding quickly consumed. Good time all around.
