I can't tell you how many times we have been to Michael's ...every time it has been perfect! This last visit we were joined by friends who have also been there many times.

I went with some of my friends on a Friday for lunch. The service was fast and she was very attentive. Food was very good and reasonably priced. We will be going back again.

We stumbled across Michael's while on a weekend drive. Never heard of it before and thought we would take a chance. It was a great surprise with very reasonable prices, excellent food and service. It's about 80 miles from our home but we would drive there just to have a fine meal. I have never given a 5 star rating... More

We were visiting our son at Colgate. This restaurant was a bit of a drive from there, but worth it. Even during a busy weekend, we did not feel rushed or did it seem that the staff was stressed. We were seated promptly. The pork chop and the tuna were both excellent. We had one small service glitch with a... More

We visit Michael's when we visit from the UK to see relatives who live in the area and always look forward to it. The food is extremely good, very imaginative and well presented. We can utterly recommend it.

Our family visited Michael;s on a Sunday evening. The service was very good and the menu choices were extensive, even my kids had a great selection. We choose everything from Chicken to Salmon and everything tasted great. This is above the price of higher end chain restaurants, but so is the quality. You will be happy you found this gem.
