Our server, Matt, was freking on point. HE was awesome for sure. *

But the food was ok. The crab cake didn't have much filler but seemed like it was ritz crackers. Ordered a blue rare and he ordered a med rare, they were cooked the same. Flavorful, but the same. Food didn't match the price and the ambiance was LOUD (and I'm hard of hearing.) We were there during dinner time. For how much we paid, I kind of expected a little more. Wasn't bad... but we won't be going out of our way to come back or recommend to anyone. If I was 10 years younger the bar area would have been pretty lit non-covid timeframe. States Local ingredients, but no one knows where from. Not good for an anniversary. :/

We enjoyed our visit, We both ordered the crab imperial. It was good but the menu description was different than how the food actually looked. We plan to return.

We went to Michaels cafe for an early Valentine’s dinner. The service was great, we sat at the bar, our bartender/server was Chuck I believe? He was knowledgeable about the menu and didn’t hover over us, checked on us just enough for anything we needed. We started with the Happy Hour tostadas, everything on them tasted fresh. I had the braised lamb shank which was tender and full of flavor. My fiancé had the steak and cake. The crab cake was delicious, almost no filler and the steak was cooked perfectly, his only critique would be a bit more salt and pepper on the steak. I was pleasantly surprised to see they had Taharka Brothers (the best local ice cream ever) on their dessert menu. All in all a wonderful dining experience and we will definitely be back.

We have been here consistently for 3 weekends and the Hostesses have always been rude and inconsistent with what they tell you even though we had a reservation. Not sure I'm going back. Food was cold the last 2 times as well... Not going back!

An excellent experience as usual! We went for Prime Rib night and it does not disappoint! I ordered the crab imperial and it is also delicious! I was surprised that there was a charge to change my side from spinach to corn for $2 on a $28 entree. When I let our server know I don’t like the spinach. I feel there should be options....
The staff is excellent and our server was great!!!!

I gave a fair review due to the way I was treated when I first arrived. I do understand that Covid restrictions are in place BUT when you make an exception for a white person after I asked to be seated in a particular area then there is a problem. I arrived and greeted the hostess, I then proceeded to ask if my boyfriend and I could be seated at the bar but she said "it's no way possible to be done" so I said, "ok we'll just take a table". After being seated for about five minutes I was greeted by the manager who proceeds to tell me he had received a complaint from someone that witnessed the whole thing and asked if I would like to be seated at the bar I said sure because if an exception could be made for a white couple why couldn't it be made for my boyfriend and I especially when ALL of OUR money is green and credit cards are plastic. I would've recommended this place but I wouldn't want anyone I recommend to be treated the way we were. Hopefully the service towards African Americans get better.

We take this very seriously. Primarily we want you to know that we respect your feelings and understand that in some situations real discrimination does occur but we must assure you that this was not the case here. After taking the time to speak with the staff it was determined the staff members involved were not trained properly on how to seat the bar given the restrictions. We were happy to move you to the bar. Serving our guests equally is a point of pride for us. Hope to see you again.

Brought two girlfriends this time. Neither had been and can't wait to come back with their husbands. The air filtering system is a biggie for me. Servers are wonderfully friendly and attentive. And the food! Really can't say enough about it. Next time, the Peruvian chicken. After half price burger and $1 wings on Monday night! See you soon!

Enjoyed a delicious New Years Eve dinner starting with our favorite app, the grilled octopus. Our server Carolyn was great - friendly, attentive, and never rushed us. The surf and turf special for the evening was excellent and hope to see it offered again. Great meal to end the year and all safety practices in place.

This was our first time at Michael’s, the dining experience was great, the staff was very friendly and checked in throughout our meal. The food was very good, we really enjoyed the tomato basil soup and crab dip. The bar is fairly large so it’s not a quiet place but we didn’t mind and the space was designed very well. Overall we had a great time and will definitely be coming back!
