Food, cocktails, and service was amazing. Menu is diverse without being too extensive or overwhelming. Really looking forward to coming back and working my way through all their choices!

Food good but not worth the price.
Drinks full of ice and no drink for 11.00.
Very noisy hard to have conversation

Our server was fantastic. The food was fantastic. We sat in the back behind the bar area. They could use a shear curtain on the big window exposing a huge construction project going on but that is our only suggestion. We would love to see live acoustical music on weekend.

New go to place in the area. Great food, good drink and food specials, spacious and good service. Only complaint would be that some of the cocktails are more expensive than what is given to you. That’s a minor complaint, as that is an issue at most restaurants.

We took our family there for something different. Everyone enjoyed their meal with several people commenting it was the best they ever had. I had the pumpkin ravioli & it was cooked perfectly. The only person who was not extremely happy ordered a blacken fish & felt like it could have been more blackened. Otherwise, a great experience.

Recently had a casual lunch with an old friend. Had a lot of catching up to do. Waiter struck the perfect balance between being attentive and leaving us alone to chat. Also knowing exactly when we needed something,

Very nice restaurant. Clean. Been there 2 times and both servers were excellent, not hovering but there if we needed something. Can be noisy when crowded due to minimum soft surfaces in the surroundings as many new restaurants are these days. Our party of 4 were there on a Monday at 4 pm so noise was not an issue. When there on a Sunday for Brunch. Very crowded and lots of noise. All that said, food has been good and I will definitely go back. Just trying to stay away from busy hours.

Ambience was great. Food was great. It’s just a little expensive. My wife had a filet at market price. Based on other bigger steaks on the menu in the upper $20-$30 range we expected something in the $30s but it was $40+. Grilled Octopus was very good but a little small of a portion for $18.

Overall we had a very nice experience but am not sure we can go regularly with the prices where they are.

Great new addition to our neighborhood. All of our dishes tasted great. Great place to grab food, grab a drink, or watch the game. Our server Darren was super-helpful and friendly. Will definitely be coming back. They do a prime rib on Sunday nights that is outstanding! Huge cut of meat!

My fiance and I went there for the first time on Valentines Day. The service and atmosphere was excellent. It was casual yet elegant and upscale. It was the perfect place for a romantic dinner. The best part was the bar drinks. My margarita was phenomenal and so was their drink special for the evening.The food was excellent, but priced a little steeply for what it was. We both ordered Filet Mignon which were excellent, but we felt as if they didn't quite live up to their +$40 price tags. Other than that the food was great. I will definitely be coming back here again.

Prompt service- attentive staff. I am a repeat customer and am never disappointed. I have tried several of the menu options and each one is equally delicious. I have recommended Michael's to others and most of them have also repeated their visits. When my adult children come to town, they ask if we can go to Michael's. Looking forward to the next visit!

Michael’s is my favorite restaurant - ever. I’m a foodie, too. The service is phenomenal (Katie), the atmosphere is modern and relaxing, the old fashioned with pumpkin butter is the best cocktail I’ve ever had, and the food is to die for. Highly recommend!

Great hidden spot! We’ve known about this place for awhile but for some reason never went to try it until now. It’s a bit further out and isn’t around other restaurants but the area is being built up quickly. The restaurant has an excellent atmosphere and really took the time to design. The food was outstanding as well. It is on the more pricer side for entrees and apps but at the end of the day it was good and our party enjoyed every minute!

Went for a birthday brunch. Anything with crab is amazing! Big juicy lumps of crab in every item we ordered. Cream of crab, crab dip, crab hash, and crab cake Sammy. Bill our server and Josh (the manager) were attentive, and accommodating. Service was outstanding!

I would recommend Michael's to others with the caveat that it is very loud and sometimes hard to carry on a conversation. This is why a took one star away from two areas. There isn't enough soft surround decor to help calm the chatter. We were there on Sunday when it was packed so maybe visiting during less busy days and hours would be more comfortable.

As always, Michael’s is our go to place. Everything from the appetizers, cocktails, dinner, and dessert was excellent! Although, we sat in the bar at a large table. Noise level was high. My other issue, super expensive....
