Nice and Clean. Sat at high top in bar area. Only one bartender. She was great but stretched too thin with tables and bar. Had Buffalo Shrimp, Crab Cakes, House Salads and Admiral Feast. All good except Shrimp was overlooked. Not bad for off season.

We have been going to Carolina Beach for a few years now but never actually went to a seafood restaurant there! When we asked around, we were told to try Michaels. Quick, friendly and excellent service coupled with mouthwatering food at a decent price is what we found when we checked it out. We forgot to order chowder to go... More

The fresh snapper was excellent and the sweet potato soup was incredible. I don't know how I ever missed this place!

I don't know what meal to write about first!! Everything was so tasty, fresh, and clean!! We started with the tuna tataki and oysters Rockefeller-- one was better than the next!!! My husband's crab cakes were the best I've ever tasted, seriously- light flaky pan seared!! I had the Alaskan snowcrabs and was so sad when I had none left!!... More

Good sea food. Clam chowder is actually made from lots of clams. Service is good. Dessert cakes apparently precut and refridgerated making it quick to get them out but drier than they should be. Don't get the potato chips. No draft beer.

The food I had was very good, but boiled or broiled are not my favorite. There was no option for fried, so I just had crab cake and clam chowder. It would be nice to have the option.

The chowder was the best. Pay a dollar more and get the bowl rather than the cup. The Penne Rachelle with Shrimp and Scallops was wonderful. The service and the ambiance was terrific. A perfect seafood restaurant.

Went here in the off season (Dec, 2016) and though not crowded, it had folks eating at 2:30 PM. We got the chowder bowl ($6.50) to share and it was chock full of seafood in a very thick sauce, excellent. The we had the Crabcake Sandwich which came with potato chips, cole slaw, a little tub of homemade sauce for... More
