Casual atmosphere and friendly staff. Greek Salad is plenty. Order the small and enjoy the pickled okra. We added shrimp which was fresh - lightly battered. Fried oysters were very good. Not a fan of the French fries ... fries too heavy. The corn fritters were GREAT. Fish (flounder) and chips were very good, too. Was worth the money.

My family of 4 older kids and two adults ate here for a late lunch. Service was friendly and quick. The food was delicious. I had the fried shrimp and would recommend them. Our favorite thing that we ate was the Corn fritters!! Awesome!

J Michaels was the first place we ate upon arriving in PCB. We had excellent service, and the seafood was very fresh. It was fresh, hand battered and not from frozen. I enjoyed the baked oysters. It would definitely be worth trying if you like seafood.

Just okay isn't what we like to hear, but it's certainly better than terrible. We hope you'll try us again as your experience was not at all the norm. More

The service was great.. friendly waitresses and even met the owner who was very nice. We ordered two different kinds of oysters.. I ordered the French baked... More

Our oysters tend to be a tad smaller than some of the dedicated "oyster house," but ours are hand selected for taste. We like to think of ourselves as a full service menu restaurant that offers the best food and service at a price that can't be beat. thanks for the nice review. More

It doesn't look like much on the outside and very casual on the inside. The walls and ceiling are decorated with old pictures and memorabilia. People come here for the food and it is great. My wife had the fried shrimp which was our waitresses favorite and they were great. I had the Greek salad and seafood gumbo. My daughter... More

It's easy to spend good money on bad food during vacation. J Michaels doesn't even need to advertise they're busy throughout the year. Highly recommend their fried shrimp, I order with no sides and it is the best fried shrimp that I have tried out here. Honestly, I haven't tried anything bad from them. Did I forget to mention they... More

One of our favorite local places. Love the crab, price is very reasonable. Oysters are great too, coldest beer in PCB and you must try the no name pie.
