Went out tonight for husband's birthday. Expected to get an "out of this world" steak. The Steerbutt, their signature steak, was cooked to my satisfaction, was not tough but not as tender nor flavorful as it should have been. My husband's Delmonico was tough with...More

Good food, great waiter. Was disappointed to discover happy hour is not honored on Friday evenings. The fried green tomatoes were great, as was the salad. The lamb chops were great, and the desserts were fantastic

I've eaten at Michael's several times and have never been disappointed. I could live on their salads of lettuce, chopped red onion, cucumber, raisins and grape tomatoes. Don't leave without trying the Bread Pudding.
