I wanted to go here because my son's name is Michael. The hostess asked me where I wanted to sit and I told her it was our first time there and she made a noise and comment that was negative. We were quite casual and my son is 19 and she seated us in a very formal area, I asked... More

Three of us hit Michaels for dinner at 5 p.m. on Saturday. One had crab imperial, one had the lobster/crab cake platter, and one had chicken Florentine. Everyone was pleased. My lobster/crab cake came with a generous portion of coleslaw and a generous portion of well-cooked French fries. The chicken Florentine came with rice and broccoli. The crab imperial was... More

I go to Michael's a couple times a month and almost always get their crab cakes which I highly recommend. Surprisingly, there are very few restaurants in Maryland that offer an excellent crab cake; however, this is one of them. On the occasion that I try something else, I am never disappointed.

I have eaten at Michael's a few times now and it is always good. Today we had the eggs Benedict and my boyfriend an omelet. Good atmosphere and kind staff will keep us coming back.

Good food and they are noted for their great crab cakes. They have very good service. Sometimes a local celebrity will pop in.

Go to Michael's often, crab cakes are as good as it gets. Bartenders and staff are first rate. The appetizers are also outstanding, especially the fried calamari.

Stopped by here late one evening for a couple of drinks with my wife and a light meal. Cocktails were very good and so was the cream crab soup. Had a plate of blue point oysters that were delicious. Large, cleaned pretty well (little grit in a couple but nothing serious) and good presentation. We like our oysters on crackers... More

The woman who brought me my order was wonderful while another woman at the register didn't acknowledge anyone or smile. We ordered shrimp & crab dip (delicious), a split... More
