Darron was our very attentive server and made our experience very pleasant. The brought out our drinks and appetizer promptly. Love the grilled octopus! Had to ask for bread to stop up every morsal on the plate. The pepperoni pizza was very tasty and surprisingly brick oven- like. The ribs and crab cake combo came with their succotash which is a bit different using no lima beans but instead red and green pepper chunks, sautéed spinach leaves, and corn. We liked it and also opted for Cole slaw rather than fries. Good choices! Very happy with our meals.

I loved everything and the place was very clean and well lit. My only suggestion would be to offer pitcher service for mimosas for brunch I was aware of the change from bottomless because of Covid19 however some restaurants now offer buckets of small bottles of champagne and orange juice as an option

Three of us decided to celebrate a birthday dinner at the outdoor seating area of Michael's. We were fortunate to get a lovely table just outside from the bar area which is separated by sliding glass doors. The staff was great in closing the doors each time delivering food and drink which kept the noise from the bar and TV out of the outdoor seating area. Another stroke of luck was our server Melissa was assigned once again to our table! She's like a ray of sunshine added to our day! It's rare to find a great server and you will find Melissa is exceptional.
The food was very good and fresh. We ordered the salmon dinner and the filet mignon, the grilled octopus and burratta, cheesecake, ice cream, and bread pudding, coffee and raspberry tea. Delicious! Filet was tender and tasty. Salmon was moist and flaky. Octopus was off charts grilled to tender juicy perfection in a lemony salsa verde with a grilled lemon and fresh purple radish as garnish. Our favorite!

We had two servers. A gentlman and a lady. We sat inthe back. Next to the 14 chair table. Excellent service. Our primary server was Melissa. She explained the foods and what she recommended. The crab dip was amazing and the chicken had a very robust flavor. Melt in your mouth
Portions were large.

We had just completed settlement on the sale of our home and chose Michael’s to celebrate. The noise level was a bit much for us to totally enjoy our special moment!

We love going to Michael’s Cafe Whitemarsh/Middle River. The food and drinks are delicious, restaurant is beautiful, prices are reasonable, and staff members are wonderful. The atmosphere is really nice. They play a wide genre of music. The restaurant and restrooms are very clean. We love having Amanda as our server. She’s very nice and attentive to her tables making sure that your experience while dining there is to your utmost satisfaction. We’ve also had other servers who are all awesome as well. The overall experience at Michael’s is great. You will not be disappointed!

Wait staff was outstanding! Food was so delicious, as always. We were seated very close to neighboring diners so that was a bit uncomfortable, otherwise it was a pleasurable experience.

It was very nice. I took my daughter there for her birthday, along with my daughter in law, with my hopeful future wife. It was so much more than I expected in the White marsh area. We all agreed that we would return again for any occasion. Just to be out with family & friends was nice, and Michael Cafe made it worth while.

Michael’s was a great spot for brunch. Had some really good things to choose from. I had the chicken & waffles…it was delicious!!! The sweet and savory came together perfectly with the crispiness of the chicken breading and the sweet of the waffle and syrup. Amazing! And the Bloody Mary was excellent!!
We were there early (10am when they opened) so it wasn’t crowded or noisy.
Our waiter was attentive and not overbearing. Overall, I think it was a great place!!

Unlike other visits to Nottingham, my nose detected a bit of stink this day. Maybe the carpet because when I've been in the bar area, I only get the smells of food. I have a very sensitive nose.

Our server was friendly, kind, and attentive. The raw bar and sandwich items from the brunch menu were outstanding.

We enjoyed the entire meal even though it was a bit noisy. But we asked to be seated in the back left room. It was much less noisy and we enjoyed the food. I had grilled octopus as an appetizer. Next came a full rack of ribs and a hamburger meal. Very tasty food and quick service.

The drinks were awesome. The burger sliders were delicious. The lamb meatballs were dry, but the hummus and oil/veggies with it helped a little. Our wait staff was super, she was super helpful and really made our night more enjoyable.

First visit. Lovely place in White Marsh MD. Everyone was very friendly. The appetizers where not good at all. Coco shrimp and Brussels. The main meal was decent but I had better food at the Silver Diner the next day. Maybe we just tried the wrong items. We will give it a 2d try

Our Michael’s experience was fabulous, from the moment we were seated up to the time we left. While the hostess was about to bypass our party of three for a larger group that arrived after us despite our reservation, a gentleman who appeared to be the manager came to the stand and asked her who was next, then seated us immediately. Our waiter Bobby was personable and expedient. We enjoyed calamari, seafood clubs and orange and watermelon crushes. The food was fabulous as usual!

It was my first time at Michael's. Our waitress was amazing, and my experience was good. They were out of a couple of dishes I was thinking of getting, and the crackers that came with the soup were very stale. Otherwise, it was a nice experience.
