Michaels was a great date night for us. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. Our server, Todd, was top-notch. Try the duck and the crab cakes. Amazing!

Authentic Key West because of the location in a small house with the "side yard" feel. The waiter was a "10". Food was very good. Michaels is in an old house so in the summer dress cool because the A/C will not get very cold, but it didn't bother my wife and I. The bartenders were exceptional....we had the best... More

We dined at Michaels on our first trip to Key West several years ago and wanted to experience it again. We had a great meal, excellent service, and just a good time. My husband enjoyed a double order of coconut shrimp as his main dish. They added a salad at no charge. I had the snapper meuniere which was delicious.... More

This was a nice surprise - a spot off the beaten path with a more neighborhoody feel too but with really good food. A very welcome reprieve from the usual tourist cuisine.

We're sure to stop at Michael's every time we visit Key West. The food and the service are both always exceptional. We have been to Michael's both for intimate dinners and with large groups and they were perfect for both occasions. On our most recent trip, three of us dined for dinner. We had a great bottle of wine that... More

What I love about Michael's is everything! The service is spectacular. The food is amazing. We love their "Light Menu" which are small plates of their main menu. We go about once a month and have never been disappointed. And we love to sit at the bar. Suzette is the best bartender!!! I highly recommend Michael's!!!

Friday night we had dinner at the bar at Michaels. Being able to eat at the bar is always a plus for us. We usually have the Shrimp and Brie appetizer but chose the special, Bacon Wrapped Shrimp. They were excellent. My husband ordered the Filet. The meat was outstanding, as was my Mahi Macadamia. The veggies were so delicious,... More

The atmosphere and food at Michael's is amazing! I've been to Key West before but this was my first trip to Michael's...and I will definitely be back! Five star service matches the five star food...famous for steak but EVERYTHING we had was awesome.

We had diner at Michael's because they have outside dining and because of their new 'Lite Side" menu. One of the reasons we don't like going out for diner is because the portions tend to be rather large and we're trying to maintain our new lower weights. Michael's lite side menu allows us to enjoy a lovely diner out without... More
