Grilled octopus and NY strip were cooked to perfection. Excellent martini and nice wine list. Although the timeline between the initial drink service and serving of the appetizer took longer than expected, ( must have been an issue somewhere) the server did all she could to correct and provided a complementary drink. Service was very good otherwise. Overall food and... More

We throughly enjoyed our dinner at Michaels. The shrimp was fresh and the key lime sauce was so very tasty! We wanted to lick the plate! My daughter had the snapper and completely loved that too! Our waiter Justin was very helpful with suggestions and patiently answered all of our questions. Key lime pie for dessert was excellent. I would... More

Great Filet, will cook you any size you want, I liked a 14oz., Calamari was so salty couldn't eat it, Arron did credit that back and totally agreed about this matter. I would think this issue would be changed if the manager was aware of it. The salad was a very small portion for the cost, Was really looking forward... More

We have been to key west MANY times over the years and never heard of this place. Mark at the Southernmost recommended for my husbands 40th birthday. It was so good. We shared the IPA Beer Wisconsin cheese fondue for an appetizer. 3 folks had the filet mignon and 1 had the snapper. All were delicious. This is quaint locals... More

We were here for two weeks and went to Michaels twice, once with our twenty-something kids, once without. I think my husband would have liked to have come here more often. Service very friendly and when there were delays the second time they were most apologetic and kept us updated on timing - although we were in no rush. The... More

This small restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating with a lively bar crowd. Well-heeled patrons. We had an excellent snapper fish and seared tuna. The only problem was a waitress who seemed forgetful or unaware.

I'm a foodie so, overall I was not impress with food in KW but this is probably the best food we had on our trip. The Coconut shrimp was great. The scallops were good too. The Chicken picatta sauce was excellent, although the chicken was thick and a little dry. I always prefer chicken to be pounded thin for a... More
