·Dined on December 31, 2016

Last year we enjoyed Michaels for our New Years Eve dinner so we thought we would do it again this year. We were looking forward to the great food and service we had received before only to be very disappointed. Our service was poor. I am gluten and dairy free and the waitress didn't even register that fact when I told her. She brought crutons on my salad after I had specified no gluten. Then she also brought out the dessert and put it in front of me after I had told her once again, no dairy or gluten. Also, other members of our groups steaks and chicken entrees were not cooked properly. The chicken was under cooked. And the steaks were burnt on the outside, while cold on the inside. We sent the steaks back only to have them brought back out looking not burnt, but still raw in the center. The manager acted mad towards guests at our table. Overall, this was a poor experience. Not how we planned to spend our new years eve. And to top it off, it was a set menu, so everything should have been prepared to perfection.

Four of us went to celebrate 3 b'days & 2017. Prime rib good. Fillet very good. Both ribeyes were tough. Flavor good. Brought most of both of them home for dogs. So tough had to cut them in small bites even for the small dogs. Waiter didn't even ask how things were. It had been awhile since I'd been there. Took people who had never been. Big mistake. Appetizers & baked potato very good. Overall, very disappointed. I fell as I was leaving restaurant. Very dark steps that are hazardous. One young man that I believe worked there very nice & concerned. No follow up tho. Kneecap , ankle & wrist hurt. Restaurant would benefit from more attention to its overall dining experience.

A summer regular here. Decided to try over the Christmas Holidays. Food consistently good. Enjoyed the indoors Christmas decoration. Love this place but just a little pricey food and wine.

My wife and I went to Michael's to enjoy a "Christmas" date together, and Michael's exceeded our expectations. The restaurant was very tastefully decorated for Christmas, the service was prompt and polite, and the food was outstanding.

We have been dining at Michael's for over 15 years, special occasions which make it even more important for the evening to be great. We have never been unhappy with our food or our service. We look forward to dinning at Michael's for many more years. We look forward to our special occasions for many reasons and also because we will be dining at Michael's.

I went to this restaurant as a child with my parents while on vacation in Osage Beach during the late 1970's - early 1980's when it was called the Swiss Chalet. It would be nice to visit this place for lunch and enjoy the outdoor patio, rather than only be able to dine at dinner. We will plan to return the next time we are in the area.

I had been to Michael's with a large group a couple times before and wanted to go back with my husband. But, this visit the restaurant looked very tired and worn. The food was delicious, but workmen were painting the outside during our dinner and bright lights were in our eyes.

We have enjoyed Michael's for many years. We visit on Birthdays and Anniversaries and have always been very happy with everything which is why we come back; On October 23, 2016, we were enjoying all of the great things offered by Michael's;Wonderful outdoor ambience, the main reason we came back to this location after 30 years or so ago being our last visit; we lived in different places, etc......Clos du Bois Chardonnay; Wonderful appetizer escargot, with some changes noted since last visit in June; a beautiful Lobster Tail; glazed pork chops were just wonderful; and salad was great with Blue Cheese Crumbles which we thoroughly enjoy! We highly recommend this location/restaurant with indoor/outdoor options for dining, to everyone! Thanks for a Beautiful Birthday Celebration!

We finally tried Michaels and we are so glad we did! My husband and I ordered prime rib. The waiter suggested grilled, so that is how we ordered. It was Fantastic! It is now our favorite place for prime rib. Service was timely and friendly. We will be going back for sure in the spring and sitting outside to enjoy the lake view.

Michaels has always been a destination every time I went to the Lake of the Ozarks. Gone for years and had a good meal. This time my wife's ribeye was tough, chewy and had a lot of fat. My filet was good but not quite cooked the way I'd like. I didn't complain about my filet and got free dessert for the ribeye problem. It just wasn't the great meal we expected. I'll probably go back one more time and hope we get better. Otherwise I'm probably done.

Dirty patio, dirty Windows, shady bent and are poor quality, table not set up, forgot the glass of wine, did not have the steak sauce advertised,, napkins dirty, For some reason the food is normally ok, however if they would clean the place and be involved with the looks of the place they may have a lot more business. Remote area so they think they can be dirty..

and November and it's a must that we go to Michael's. There food is over the top. We look forward when the season begins again.

I'm not sure having a reservation helped us much. Those in line in front us didn't have a reservation and took what looked like the last outdoor table with a lake view. We were offered a table on the third level and declined because we wanted a view of the lake. We said no we didn't want to eat inside so the wait staff finally placed a table and chairs in a rather secluded area of the 2nd level. It was perfect. We were treating our college age granddaughter to a special dinner before she went back to classes. We only go to Michael's for special occasions due to the cost.
