We arrived on time for our reservation. We received our salads in about 5 minutes, then waited more than an hour for our entrées, which were very mediocre. Shrimp was undercooked. Some kind of smoky sauce was poured over the prime rib, giving it an off taste.
We had tickets to a show at 9:00 pm, so we arrived at 7:15. We received our entrées at 8:35. The restaurant manager was very apologetic and comped our dinner. The wait staff was fine. The problem was in the kitchen.

We had surf and turf, and also the 'Hot Rocks' filet mignon. The surf and turf was pretty good although the lobster tail was unevenly cooked with it being almost raw in spots but the filet was good. The 'Hot Rocks' filet mignon which you cook yourself on a hot stone at the table was very good with nice sides included. The surf and turf was ala carte. We had the creamed spinach, mushrooms and baked potato sides with it---all pretty good. The restaurants ambiance is special---some people came dressed up, but some not so much. Service, while polite and respectful, was inadequate. The waiter came 3 times during the first 5 minutes to take our order not giving us nearly enough time to review the menu and wine book---we felt rushed even though the restaurant was not that busy. After our order was taken we couldn't find the waiter when he was needed. It took a long time to get our drink order. The waiter neglected to take our sauce order (a sauce came with the Hot Rock filet and you get to pick one from five or six such as béarnaise). When we eventually got our sauce order placed he never brought it and we had to remind him again when he could be found. He never considered asking for a dessert order and was ready to bring the bill but we called him back to ask for the dessert selections. He brought the book listing the desserts but despite being advised that we would soon have to get to a show he took fully 15 minutes to come back to take the dessert order. Needless to say at that point we had no time for dessert. He apologized and said it was busy tonight.---Sorry, we really didn't see that. In summary, we would definitely go back, but hope for another waiter.

We made reservations and were seated promptly. It was busy but it seemed like it took a long time for service. 20 minutes in between seeing our waiter from drinks to app, then about 30 minutes in between app and food. Had to wait another 25 minutes for our bill after eating. Our food was delicious but just seemed to take a long time.

The Sunday Brunch at Michele’s is a special treat starting with the omelette station and finishing with the crepe station! My personal favorites are the shrimp cocktail, prime rib, lollipop lamb chops, fresh vegetables and, of course, the endless desserts. The staff is welcoming and professional. The cost of the brunch is quite reasonable for the amount and quality of food served. We’ve recently relocated to Delaware from Connecticut and this is better than any brunch I’ve had up there. Highly recommend you try it!!

The person handling the check-in process seemed to be very distracted. Had a 12:15 appointment and waited at least 20 minutes for our table. The food was fair and was not worth the $29.95 price per person. We have been here for brunch at least two dozen times and this was the worst experience.

We arrived at the restaurant and were warmly greeted. The evening went downhill from there. Our waitress was very lackadaisical and when she brought the entrees she forgot our sides and instead went to the front of the restaurant and talked to the hostess for at least five minutes. My husband had to go to the front of the restaurant and inquire about the side dishes. She eventually came back with another woman and brought out the wrong side dishes.
It was a lack of attention to detail that could’ve turned the evening sour and it was only saved by the company at the table.
There were not many parties in the restaurant so volume was no excuse. The other waitress in the room who was servicing a large party was extremely attentive and very responsive.
I don’t normally take the time to write anything but a $300 bill and $50 tip prompted me to say something. We will not be back.

Our experience was not a good one. We arrived and were seated promptly. Our waitress was good. However we had to wait one hour for our meals and when they arrived all of the vegetables were cold—especially the mashed potatoes. One of our party received filet that was not cooked to her order. The waitress gave her prime rib as a substitute, but it was rather tasteless. We were given additional potatoes, but they were delivered late and were cold again. Our waitress was very apologetic and gave us complimentary desserts. It was a disappointing experience especially since we were celebrating our friend’s birthday.

Michelle's always has really good food and you can't beat the price considering the atmosphere and buffet selections. I was a little disappointed this past visit because there were always 5 or 6 people in line for the crepes. If they are offering crepes (please keep them! they are delish!) they should have 2 stations. They also ran out of a few items on the buffet and it wasn't particularly busy.

I didn't know when I made my reservations for 5:45 that they were going to close at 7. I decided to have the Thanksgiving dinner but the stuffing was dried out, the sweet potatoes were congealed and the cake was dry. Not an extremely pleasant experience. Husband ordered the prime rib and said he would never order it again with the smoke flavor so strong it smelled like someone had just lit a fire in the fire place.

The Thanksgiving meal was awful. The Turkey was supposed to be fresh roasted white & dark meat, instead the slices were uniformly thin, slathered in gravy and tasted like a processed frozen turkey dinner from the supermarket. We've come for Thanksgiving dinner for the past 5 years and have always been satisfied, even though the menu has changed slightly. This year most of it remained on the plate returned to the kitchen. The meal was very disappointing, and not worth the money!!
