The famous Split Level Crab soup was served lukewarm. (The waiter also forgot the fresh ground pepper, that he offered). We sent the soup back. My shrimp salad sandwich was not toasted, as asked for, and the bread was, unfortunately, dry. The layer of actual shrimp, on the sandwich, seemed barely adequate. (The lettuce and tomato, which made up the... More

Michael's offers different daily food items in addition to a nice menu. Had 2lb lobster with side dishes; all items served hot, and delicious.

After enjoying a wonderful tribute to Frank Sinatra concert at the Baltimore Symphony we decided to have dinner at Michaels. It proved to be a wise decision. We each had the Parmesan crusted oysters for an appetizer followed by Caesar salads. I had the NY Strip steak saltimbocca, perfectly cooked medium rare topped with smoked Gouda and Prosciutto resting on... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I apologize for the experience you had. It sounds like something was way off, especially since our crab cakes are known to be the best(my grandmother's recipe). If you'd like you can email me at steve@michaelscafe.com More

Enjoyed a meal in the bar while I was at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, excellent. The Restaurant Week special was great, but too much to eat.

Our group of six had an enjoyable meal at Michael's while attending a conference in Towson. Pleasant surroundings, good range of menu choices, and tasty food at a reasonable price. There appeared to be a number of local regulars among the clientele which I took for a positive sign.

Stopped in here for dinner with a colleague and had a great meal. Wings and crab cake - they have a great choice of beers and a new patio area. Service was great and prices good. Will go again

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
