We received a gift certificate for Michaels and used it tonight. We started with the onion straws which were amazing. The cheese amd crackers were good, as well as the salad. The prime rib was much larger than we expected. It wasn't one of the best I've had, but we both enjoyed it. Would definitely return.

I have been going to Michaels for more than 15 years. Unfortunately, the food quality had been slipping recently. The new owners are implementing consistent improvements across the board. The staple of the prime rib is back to rivaling any Chicago steakhouse. The cocktail and wine programs are top notch. On my last visit, the duck confit was surprisingly light... More

I ordered the 24 ounce prime rib and it was good. Came with horseradish but I would have preferred broth. Smallest salad I have ever been served. It was just a few bites but it was delicious. French Onion soup was unimpressive. The cheese was melted, but was melted earlier and was not hot. The soup was not warm and... More

Thanks for coming in and sharing your comments which are helpful. We have been working on improving our salad moving from just iceberg to a blend of various greens. We apparently have the taste but need to work on the volume. We do put some aus jus on our primes along with the side of house made horseradish. We should... More

Friends invited us to join them for dinner. We visited this restaurant a few years ago with them and remember it to be excellent food and service. Soon found out when we arrived on this visit that ownership changed in December 2016. I ordered the 28 ounce prime rib and so did both of our friends. My wife had the... More

Being active diners, I know how disappointing it can be when the food or service is not what we expected. We will review our processes to help insure our guests have a better... More

I visited here on a Saturday night with my fiance, her mother, and her mother's boyfriend. It was a first supper club experience for my fiance's mother. We arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation and enjoyed a couple drinks at the bar. The infused old fashions were great and the bartenders were outstanding. Upon sitting down, we ordered an...

Supper Club style restaurant were you are served ham and cheese spread upon being seated. Huge portions of prime rib. I usually have the salmon as I'm not a real big meat eater. We have never been disappointed. Try the fried green peppers they are very good. Extremely reasonable prices for the amount of food you receive. They have a... More

The new appetizers are all excellent:. Cheese spread, shrimp and shaved brussel sprouts with bacon. We ate at the bar and we're too full to try the other great new menu items. Looking forward to our next visit to try others.

Great old time supper club. Saturday night special is prime rib, which my husband had. I had a filet. It's pricey, but well worth it. The decor has changed since we last visited. Very sunny and bright. The menu changed as well. They don't have the lazy Susan for salads anymore, but our waitress brought us homemade croutons, which were... More
