We then orderes Cocktails, CLASSIC Margarita as it says on the menu, was everything but classic. It was made with Orange Juice and not lime. Then the Club Soda....was sereved with... More

A combination of both inside and outside dining with a relaxed atmosphere. A good selection on the menu with enough fish and veggie options to keep us happy. Our bread came with sweet butter which we have seen before. Our very helpful waiter quickly got us some salted butter and we have a good laugh about the sweet butter. Hot... More

I was recently in Key West for a few days. It was suppose to be two days of consulting, and then my wife would fly down from Virginia, and we'd have 3 more days of fun in the sun. Unfortunately, the big snow storm whacked the East Coast, and she couldn't get out of DC. Michaels had been recommended to... More

Service with a smile. Good selection of menu choices. Food was excellent. Service was very good but sedate, plenty of time for extended conversations. Room was full between 7 and 8:30 pm.

This was my first time at this restaurant and I was impressed as soon as I walked up the steps to the porch. Next time, I will eat out on the porch as it is lovely. However, no matter where you sit - inside or out, the food is outstanding! My friends tried the steak and said it was delicious.... More

The initial ambiance was great, the tables outside and the fountain. We were seated inside which lacked all of that plus I saw a very large palmetto bug cruising down the wall towards the end of our meal. The wait staff was great, very kind and attentive. The food was really just average...with all of the really great places in... More

We remembered having a wonderful dinner in a garden setting at Michael's about eight years ago. So we made a reservation to celebrate our anniversary here & we're not disappointed! Food, drinks, & service were superb! It is an intimate setting as well.

We stumbled upon Michaels last week and were happy to eat at the bar. Fantastic staff. We ate from the "Lite Plates" menu. Best food I have tasted in years. For the quality of food and service I would not call it expensive. Treat yourself, you know you deserve it.
