Had dinner with another couple on Saturday to celebrate a retirement. Got there early and had a drink at the bar where we were met with a warm and friendly reception from the host David Buckley and the 2 lady bartenders. Our table was ready when promised where we all enjoyed the services of Rhonda our waitress. We all had differing dishes from Prime Rib to pasta to salmon and they were all delicious. Michaels is a wonderful old school kind of supper club that is small and cozy but always has delicious offerings and incredibly friendly staff. We will enjoy that ambience again as soon as we can!! Thanks

Great Food, Great service. Our favorite restaurant in the Milwaukee area. The owners couldn't be friendlier, the service staff goes out of their way to be helpful. Prime Rib is spectacular, everything else on the menu has the same quality, always cooked to perfection. I brought my family there Tuesday night and every meal was perfect!

I wanted to have a special night out with my wife to celebrate our tenth Valentine's Day since we were married. I could not have been more pleased! On the chance that something special could be added, I made a request when I made my reservation. At 3pm on the day of our reservation, one of the owners contacted me and offered to get a bouquet of roses (little did I know she was later to include a vase) for presentation at our table. My wife loved that! She had no idea what to expect and the meal...good grief...the meal!

We both selected prime rib, hers with lobster tail (which was so large it looked like it played in the NFL) and mine with crab legs (split in half and ready for one to devour). We topped it off with our usual cocktails and enjoyed an uninterrupted evening with one another. Did we tip? Oh yes. $200. And I would spend every penny of it again and again and again. The service, food, ambience and intimacy of this experience was second to none. Thank goodness we live near Michael's - we will be back.

In case anyone has suspicion or doubt as to the validity of this review, I make the following comments. First, no one could pay me to extol a restaurant I've never been to, even after I dined there. Second, I have no vested interest in providing commentary that is either laudatory or critical. Third, well, my wife and I have had a long time gone and we couldn't think of a better place that we wish to return to experience the feelings and fun that we had that night. Hats off, Michael's!

The dining room was so cold we all wore our winter coats throughout the meal. The streaks were cold halfway through the meal. Very pricey since new ownership took over and cuts of prime rib are smaller. Used to be our go to place for prime rib. Not the case anymore. We will not return or recommend

This place is quite unique in many ways. You get a warm welcome from the staff. Service is good and people really seem to enjoy working there. The steak was like butter. The baked potato was cold. Other than that excellent quality food and nice ambiance.

This was our second visit; we wanted to find out if our first fabulous visit was a fluke. Plus, I wanted my son-in-law to experience the “duke”; he loved it. The night was just as wonderful as the first, our party of six had no complaints. My daughter is gluten-free and our server was exceptional in letting her know what was “safe”. If you are looking for a relaxed, over the top service, great food, look no further, go to Michael's.

A real treat! In the past Michael's was know for it's wonderful Prime Rib, absolutely delicious. The new ownership has expanded the menu and the results are great. The service and friendly atmosphere compliment the food. The owners are always there to greet you, they are really nice people! My favorite restaurant in the area.

Drinks were really good. Two of our members had the cod and shrimp and they were just OK. Potato pancakes were hard and not very flavorful. Prime rib was the best meal and I would say was one of the best that I have had in the Lake Country area. Another member had the petite filet and said it was good.
Service was ok almost kind of slow.
I would tell people to go there for Prime Rib.
Overall it was a good place to go.

The food and service was excellent. The aesthetic of the environment was nice, but it was a bit loud. This is not a fault of the restaurant - if anything, there's a reason it draws such a sizeable crowd. The food is relatively pricey, but overall, I think it's worth the price. If you order the steak, prepare for a large, but delicious, portion.

We have been to Michael's house of prime many times and ALWAYS had a great steak meal. This past Friday however, I decided to try their fish fry instead of a steak and it was very disappointing. The fish had very little flavor, and the breading was bland. Also, the "potato pancake" was a frozen hashbrown, deep fried. It was also disappointing - we will stick to our steak there as it is always outstanding!
The craft cocktails and the bar atmosphere was excellent, as we have experienced in the past.
