I agree with the previous review- that the WORD needs to get out that this is an entirely new restaurant!!! I purchased the Saganaki (flaming cheese) OMPA! and the gyros. Excellent!!!! My friend order Steak Oscar that was out-of-this-world and made fresh to order! We watched plate after plate of prime rib stream past us, and now we are going... More

The word needs to get out! This is NOT the old Michaels. In my opinion it's the best Greek food around. Also the Chef won taste of River (Rocky River)!!!!

Great for good service, good food, ambiance, great price. Very welcoming, good service. Great food. Full bar. Try during the week when it's quiet. Nice for couples and those who want to enjoy their meal in peace. My favorite is the pulled pork on potato pancakes. They have clam bake right now. Friday evenings find appetizers and beer half price.... More

I had a wonderful dinner there, celebrating my wife's birthday. The decor is not really what we expected, more like cafeteria-style look with no tablecloths as I recall and simple chairs, but the food was something else! It made up for any reservations we may have had as we approached the restaurant. As did the down-to-earth friendly owner who is... More

We were so pleasantly surprised with our luncheon at Michael's. We hadn't seen the new interior (apparently two years old) and it's just great- I want to come back and sit at the nice looking bar! We both took advantage of " breakfast " for lunch. Wow what a beautiful Mexican omelette- and the crab cakes with "Benedict", they were... More

Food was decent, but service was abysmally. Sat for 30min before order was taken, had to ask for drink refills, after order was taken it was another 30min for the apps & then more for dinner. As I said, the food was pretty good, good sized portions, but service needs some serious work.

Wow is all I can say. This place is nothing like it used to be. Amazing new menu, amazing Greek Chef, beautiful modern decor and they added a bar! It's definitely a 180 degree change. We will be back! Try the Saganaki!!! Opa!!! I'll upload photos.

I recently wrote a review for Michaels praising the new restaurant. It's fish fry season & I tried the all you can eat fish fry. What a HUGE Disappointment! Greasy, Greasy, Greasy, (fish & the fries). Wow, what happened? I thought beer battered fish was crispy? SO DISAPPOINTED :(

Michaels has been remodeled & it's wonderful! The dinners come with 3 sides. I order the bowl of freshly made soup, the Greek salad & what ever you want with your main entree. (Rolls included too) The new chef is great. My friends meet there, my family or I dine alone. The meals are large portions, the staff friendly &... More

We went here because of the band. Have heard a lot about WIXY and they were everything you hear about them and more. We will certainly be new groupies of theirs. Sorry for the rambling, now for the review of Michaels. Nice, clean and friendly folks. Owner walks around and greets his diners, nice touch. The food was good, but... More
