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

On our recent trip to Key West, we wanted to have a great steak dinner at a reasonable price. We found it with Michael's. What drew us here was their "lighter side" menu that is available every evening from 5:30 - 7:30. The portion size of the filet mignon was just right as we didn't want to stuff ourselves to... More

We asked a local for a recommendation for our 35th anniversary and this was it. Off the beaten path so we never would have found it otherwise. Such a good find! The ambiance of the garden was so pleasant in the evening. The wait staff could not have been more attentive. My husband had a seafood pasta dish which he... More
