Recently hosted a 90th birthday party with 45 people. Planning was incredibly easy, generous portions were delicious, and the attentive service amazing. Management and staff made the whole event seamless and enjoyable. I highly recommend the restaurant. A wonderful experience.

I have eaten at Michael's now for over 25 years. The first time was for a friends wedding reception many years ago. Most recently with friends from JHS but with visits in-between over the years. The food was as good today as I remembered it...More

We went to Michael's twice, with a toddler in tow. The food was excellent, and they made the whole family, including the little one, feel welcome. We all appreciated that very much.
