Description: Michaels House of Prime has been a family owned and operated restaurant for over 90 years. While specializing in bringing our diners delicious slow roasted prime rib and mouth watering steaks and seafood, Michael's also delivers on a wonderful Friday Fish Fry and a great variety of appetizers. The changing menu reflects the change in seasons and the availability of produce from area farmers and providers. The bar chefs are constantly creating new drinks to entice you from leaving an old favorite for something new. They also make a wide variety of good old Wisconsin ice cream drinks. Tuesdays is Smokehouse night that along with our full menu the chefs use the backyard smoker to create some wonderful BBQ.

We were celebrating a friends birthday and 5 out of the 8 of us love prime rib.
The prime rib was excellent!! The baked potatoes are kinda small and if you choose
the asparagus instead of spud you only received 3 stalks. I ordered the 8oz filet it came with a few mushrooms, it was good. I would have liked to order something smaller like 6oz but they didn't have a petite. I ordered the shaum torte, they suggested to share....it was huge!

We are glad you enjoyed your celebration at our restaurant. We appreciate your comments on our food, and yes the portions are large. With the prime rib we attempt to give every diner a portion that has a bone. We will look into a 6 oz filet as a smaller portion. Glad you had room for your share of the strawberry schaum tort it is quite a dessert and great for sharing, too big for one. Thanks again for coming.

Our family had a awesome meal! From the fabulous cocktails with extra large ice cubes to the scrumptious desserts in mason jars the evening was a stand out. Michael's is blending the best of a classic steak restaurant with fresh current culinary trends. My teenage boys loved the rib, shrimp and mac and cheese special. The 72 hour pot roast was fantastic. I loved the duck confit. It melted in my mouth.
Can't wait to go back!

Thank you for your kind comments. The 72 hour pot roast is off the menu for the summer but will return in fall. Look forward to having you in again to try out our other goodies.

We've been going to Michael's since the '70's together, with friends, or business guests. Always great service, plenty of food including complimentary cheese & ham spread to start you off. If you have the prime rib order the house cut unless you are Really hungry. You won't be disappointed with any of their steaks. Or other menu items as well. Family owned business. Great service.

The new owners and new chef at Michael's is a win win. First of all the new decor is a big and welcome change for the bar and restaurant. It is so clean and I know there are more things to come for the walls and bar. The new chef has kept some favorites but added quite a few new dishes to the menu. The 72 Hour Pot Roast was delicious and so was my Chicken Parmesan. To end the evening we sat at the bar and had a Brandy Alexander. We can't wait to go back and try another new menu item.

We received a gift certificate for Michaels and used it tonight. We started with the onion straws which were amazing. The cheese amd crackers were good, as well as the salad. The prime rib was much larger than we expected. It wasn't one of the best I've had, but we both enjoyed it. Would definitely return.
