I've eaten here several times and have gotten something different each time. It seems like a lot of people like the restaurant but I've never been too impressed. The food ranges from average to good. The service from poor to average. Not the worst place and definitely not the best. Average all across the board.

The prime rib at Michael's is huge and was very juicy and tender. I have ordered other items here and have never been disappointed. But, the prime rib is my favorite.

We were looking for Michael's and also found one in Etowa, TN which was closer. Stopped there and enjoyed a good meal, good service and good prices for our large party of 8.

Just don't understand why people like this place... The food is overpriced! In the past when I have dined in the food was not very good. I will not go back.
