“Don't Miss in St Michael's”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Our first trip to St Michael's, we had no plans for dinner on day one so we picked this place after walking by and seeing the clean long bar and cozy dining room. We chose wisely.
We started with excellent crab bisque and crab fritters, both were piping hot and delicious.
Dinner of crab rollatini was well prepared and quite good. We also ordered the muscles which we special requested linguini which the kitchen honored without question. These were cooked perfectly.
The wine list is not extensive, but you can find a nice pairing for your dinner.
One piece of advice, avoid sitting outside as there are numerous flys and smoking is aloud which would ruin just about anybodies dinner.

“Reasonable AND Excellent - Worthy to Note”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

This restaurant has been through several iterations, mostly from bad to worse. Eric and Mike have taken the shell and made it comfortable and a wonderfully local delight. Besides a fairly diverse menu, they have a nightly special which includes three courses for a fixed price. The last two times we stopped in, each was terrific and a steal!

One night we had Chicken Parmegiano on pasta for $20 which included a huge fresh salad and dessert. It was a large breast of tasty chicken, cooked perfectly over a bed of angel hair pasta. the sauce was homemade and delicious. Last night it was 8 perfectly pan-seared sea scallops with couscus and asparagus. Heavenly!! while the price was $30, it was more than worth it. And, a glass of good wine is under $8, almost unheard of in town.

This place has yet to be discovered, so get there and enjoy it before it does!!

“The original "Mike & Eric" Forever!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

I must admit that I have become a "Foodie Stalker", We originally ate a couple of times at Mike & Eric's Bay Hundred Restaurant at Knapp's Narrows Marina & Inn. The food was spectacular. When I planned a trip back for my husband's birthday, I was advised the restaurant was closed. Luckily I found that the new incarnation was in St..Michae'ls as M & E's Front Street Restaurant & Bar. The food this time was not spectacular, but phenomenal A group of friends had joined us for the celebration and as one said, "There were seven of us and each person had a great appetizer and entree. There were no complaints". The fresh ingredients used in each creation certainly claimed much joy on everyone's palate. We found ourselves passing plates around, The grilled shrimp with a fresh fancy guacamole was outstanding. The gazpacho was a thick flavorful taste of chopped tomatoes dancing with herbs. The Crab Bisque was delicate. The stuffed fish, cioppino, lamb burger, crab cake & curried beef over rice was all splendid. We all shared three desserts, the bread pudding, caramel cheesecake, & chocolate torte. Divine decadence! The entire staff was awesome. Our waitress, Kathy recognized my husband & I from the original Knapp's Narrows restaurant. The dear young gentleman who made sure we were hydrated was most excellent..We were able to express our appreciation to both Mike & Eric because they both were there. They are great guys, serious about what they are creating.

“Excellent St Micheals eatery”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Visited here with friends on a Thursday night. Two of us had the vegetable lasagna and agreed that it was probably the best we have had in a restaurant ( including Italy and Sicily). The setting and atmosphere is informal and the evening we were there they had live music. The music was very pleasant although, given where we were seated, a little loud for conversation.
The service that evening was excellent and prices for the pasta dishes were reasonable.
Good choice for casual dining.
