My beloved wife and I dined at Michaels Restaurant in Key West and found it to be absolutely delightful. My wife had a salad and entree from the Specials Menu and both were excellent. I had the "Our Salad" which was salami, shrimp, pepperoncinis, egg, provolone, roasted red bell pepper and Bermuda onion tossed in a creamy Pecorino-Romano dressing and... More

Ordinary food, vegetable side with main plates could have come from a cafeteria. Steaks pretty good and excellent service. Probably my worst experience there in ten years.

This restaurant is decidedly un-Key West in some ways. It's small and the a/c portion is just a nicely decorated room. Nothing special. The outdoor patio is lovely and there is a beautiful bar to sit out. We chose to sit inside because sweating while eating a delicious steak wasn't on the menu. The star is the food at Michaels....

The food was decent but the attitude of the manager will keep me from returning. We were seated in a private room and would not see the waiter for 15 minutes at a time. We order a nice bottle of wine that the server put on ice in the corner of the room and he never returned to even refill... More

Went here with six drunk and hungry bachelor party-goers and this place handled it very well. The staff was able to joke with us and provided fast service. The food was solid with large portions and great taste. I got the filet mignonette and it was excellent. Great atmosphere overall. Will go again.

Very good restaurant. This is a white tablecloth place and very expensive but very good. Try the soups, too. They are wonderful. Never had a bad meal here. $$$$$
