If you are not a seafood person they also have very good steaks. The staff is very friendly and make... read more

A trip to Key West without a visit to Michaels is like happy hour without a Martini. My wife and I were in KW to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary in June and saved our Saturday night send-off dinner for Michaels. We camped out at the bar with dynamic duo bartenders Nancy & Suzette and had a most memorable evening.... More

This was a fabulous meal! The steak with roasted garlic was absolutely delicious and the grilled pork chop was perfect! In addition, our server could not have been nicer or more professional. Wonderful dinner and experience.

The last time we visited Michaels Restaurant was over 10 years ago and we are sorry we haven't been back sooner. The hostess was very welcoming and gave us the option of eating inside, outside or at the bar. She was very accommodating when we decided to sit outside, which we highly recommend. Even with the heat, the fans keep... More

We decided to try a new restaurant for our date night, instead of our usual choice. First, the good - The ambiance is nice, with a large fountain outside, and the staff was friendly.

A quaint off the main strip dining experience On a side street, Michael's, blends in among the houses and inns it sits among. The staff is extremely friendly and they have both indoor and outdoor seating. The food is fantastic with a nice variety, but not an overwhelming menu choice, which to me means fresh, as they don't have to... More

We visit Key West a couple times a year and decided we would make it a point to try a couple new restaurants this visit. We chose Michaels based on local recommendations and several reviews we had seen. We were not disappointed. My husband had the blackened yellow tail and I had Hogfish. Both dinners were prepared a little different,... More
