Michael's had the best atmosphere of any restaurant during our recent Key West visit. Sinatra and Tony Bennet music, very nice outdoor courtyard and just all around great atmosphere and food.

We chose this restaurant for our last night dinner of our 38 day holiday. We searched for the best restaurant in Key West and we weren't disappointed! Our server Kim was welcoming and explained the menu well. The French Onion Soup was gorgeous and the Filet Mignon's with mash potato and veg simply amazing.... As a nice touch (knowing it... More

This is in the middle of Key West. They have an indoor area and outdoor patio. My husband got the "Cowboy Steak" and loved it. I ordered the Macadamia Mahi and it was fantastic. The service was great. Really liked the bread they served before dinner. I also had a wedge salad before dinner that was fabulous, not too big... More

Michaels was the perfect place to have my birthday dinner in Key West. The food was phenomenal and the ambiance was perfect. There's a bar area for fondue where there's more of a social atmosphere or you can have intimate seating in the restaurant. Great prices, as well!

A truly great dinner place in Key West. We sat outside and enjoyed the air. I had a steak and it was great! You can't go wrong eating here. The inside is air conditioned but we don't think it is as nice as outside. Plan on no parking nearby; take a shuttle or walk from your motel.

We personally love Michaels Restaurant, each and every visit to Key West we are sure to make reservations. They offer a full bar, extensive wine selection & beer. Be sure to ask for their "Lighter Menu" if you don't plan on having a huge meal. The outside patio/garden area is beautiful! Their menu offers many amazing options, our personal favorites... More

This is my favorite place in Key West! I love all of the food. I usually eat the same thing, French onion soup, but I do switch it up!

The food here is undeniably one of the best meals you can get in Key West. Michaels was recommended to us by a local on our last visit and we were pleased with the meal. Downside: It is one of the pricier restaurants in town and it is a bit short on ambiance. If you want atmosphere, eat outside if... More
