How lucky was I to be invited to a birthday luncheon at Michael’s Café. We were fortunate enough to have an entire dining room just for the girls. It was so pleasant and quiet. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and attentive. We were not rushed at all. We had great conversation and a lot of laughs. Everyone chose something... More

Nice atmosphere except that our table area was way too dark. I had chicken salad sandwich and it lacked flavor - chicken with mayo is not chicken salad. Hubby had open faced turkey sandwich and he enjoyed it.

Our server did not seem to be knowledgeable of the menu and did not offer to get help from someone else. We tried to order an appetizer and she did not know what it was nor go to the kitchen to find out. We ordered a different appetizer. Our main dish came out cold and for $36 it should have... More

Obviously New Years Eve is a hectic time in almost any restaurant. But we were there fairly early so they should have been able to handle things better. After studying the menu I ordered an entree, only then to be told they did not have it. Why not tell us at the start? Then I ordered the lobster tail. When... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We apologize for the experience you had with us. We have very high standards and it seems that we fell short on your meal. Your lobster was in fact taken off the check. We would have loved to bring you something else as we could have done so very quick. Please... More

Michael's Cafe is the place we always return to for a casual evening with great food and drink. We love to sit in the old bar (there is a newer bar at the other end of the layout). They have an eclectic menu, specialize in fresh raw, cooked oysters, and have a killer crab cake. In season, they serve fresh... More

My husband and I visited on a Saturday night without reservations. We thought it would be at least a 30 minute wait but we were lucky enough to be seated within 10 minutes. We were seated in on the right side of the restaurant which was not as loud. My husband and I split the crab dip appetizer which was... More

Came here for day after Christmas family dinner, party of 6 with reservations. The atmosphere is very nice; the restaurant was busy. Service was poor as water glasses were not refilled in a timely manner, we had to ask for bread, no one asked if we wanted more wine or beer, the crab soup was cold. The food was good,... More

Thanks for taking the time in offering your opinion. We know that our pricing is in line with most competitors and in a lot of cases actually lower. We are sorry you feel that your check was over priced. On your portion of the check was a filet mignon entree and a double crab cake platter entree. Both of these... More

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
