Highly recommend the pomegranate martini and scallops and... More

The only restaurant on the island that brings in Allen Steaks from Chicago. And they are prepared to perfection.

Just a great place off the tourist crawl to have an outstanding meal. Excellent service, quality food preparation, great cocktails. Small place, but not too noisy.

My husband and I went here for dinner, sat at the bar and ordered an appetizer of delicious scallops with brie. We then ordered small plates; pasta for my... More

Had a beautiful dinner at Michaeal. The fried.brie and bacon wrapped scallops were cooked to perfection as was th Cajon rib eye and the bacon wrapped filet. The.home made key lime pie came out still frozen, but in no way spoiled.the evening. Service was wonderful. We never felt rushed and all were so very polite.

This place is away from Duvall, and cute and quiet. Definitely needs to be redecorated, but our meals were amazing! Our Server was so attentive, but never made us feel bothered.
