Being from out of town, we were hoping for a really good dinner in this charming town. When walked in, we had no idea what a delicious dinner was about to be served with the utmost of warmth. Duffy, the owner, came by each table to check on how we were enjoying our meal and simply chatted with us out-of-towners.... More

I have not been really happy with supposed Italian restaurants in Auburn but the several times I have dined at Michael's I have been impressed. The menu changes frequently although I suspect there are perennial favorite dishes. The service is very professional, the restaurant is quiet and serene though small.

I had a 32oz porthouse steak!! By far the best I've ever had! The place was packed and we did not have a reservation and they were more than happy to make room for us (2 adults and 3 children ) The staff was very friendly and the owner came over personally make sure everything was ok!! I highly recommend... More

Don't know how I hadn't heard of Michael's before now. Had a lovely dinner from a wonderfully diverse menu of Italian dishes (not just your standard fare) The antipasto appetizer with meats, cheeses and an out of this world brueshetta started out meal. We shared an antipasto salad, beans and greens and a special chicken and eggplant parm. It was... More

We stopped here on the way to the ballpark! We didn't have a reservation but we're seated immediately in the bar area!! Very good service along with excellent food! We made it to the game on time thanks to their help!

A very nice menu and the entrees we enjoyed were excellent...I wish I could say the same for the service. We were poorly greeted by our waiter and we were not told of the night's special or choices. The food was plated and presented very nicely but would have liked if the salad was more than iceberg, carrots and two... More

Disappointed doesn't describe it. We have been going to Michael's for many years and enjoyed the ambiance and the friendly service. On our recent experience has left us up confused. From where we sat I could see into the kitchen where I saw Duffy eating his dinner and then going into the back yard. Clearly he was not doing the... More

Went in June, just my wife and I, and it was a high class restaurant with wonderful food. The veal chop was top notch (although probably the highest priced item on the menu but worth it). The wine list was good and fairly priced. Would highly recommend for a quality meal. Service was good. Would definitely return.
