A long wait and packed parking lot at a "hole in the wall" looking restaurant is usually a good sign. That held true for J Michaels in PCB. There was an hour wait at around 7:30 on a Wed night but the advertised specials and...More

So, here at the outset, let me say this... there's a reason a number of local spots in PCB have long waits.... it's where the best food is... not the best booze, not the best T-Shirts in the lobby, not the best "enhanced" servers, not...More

We waited for about 30 minutes... they put a "couple" beside the kids area. Part of our table was "in the kids" area where kids were walking back and forth to their parents' tables. Not amused at all..... they ran out of raw oysters and...More

When we were there last week, we waited 30 minutes for a very noisy, family-friendly restaurant. the food was fried and reminded me of Captain D's. We waited a long time for average food surrounded by screaming kiddos.

We love the kiddos and cater to families. Anything on the menu can be grilled or sauteed. A 30 minute wait here in the summer months is a short wait.

We went on a fishing charter and caught lots of nice red snapper. J Michaels cooked up our catch for the whole family with all the sides. Great time with the entire family!

Went twice while we were in town, both time was awesome! My daughter isn't a seafood person but she had a delicious steak. Gumbo is great, any of the fish dishes are yummy. Staff is always friendly and accommodating even though they were slammed!

Best steak in town, bar none. Yeah, we're always slammed anymore...which is good for business. We're glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you back again.

I don't remember Happy Hour but they do have some very good specials. The food is very good. I'm thinking the lunch special runs until around 4:00 pm
