Could not have asked for a better night.

Could not decide last year to go to Lattitude's or try Michael's for a special night before wedding dinner. We decided on Michael's and it was perfect, So this year it was Michael's again. The filet was fork tender. The salads and apps were delicious. This year we had our dinner outside by the... read more

Ate here with a group during one of the hottest April's on record. If you go to the back dining area when it is warm outside, get ready for stifling heat as the restaurant has a few fans to cool you off but that is about it. Service was very good as was the food. However, the environment and the... More

Two of us spent an enjoyable evening here. Starter good, main ok, pub good. Overpriced, safe and complacent. Could be really good if attention to detail is better observed.

My wife and I went back to Key West to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary on April 11, 2015. We wanted to go back to Michael's after being there 12 years before. Nothing has changed. They still have wonderful service and the food is outstanding. My wife had the stuffed veal chop and me, being a man, had the meat... More

We had other plans for the evening which got botched - so wandered around and found ourselves at Michaels on a Saturday Night without a reservation - rot row! Fortunately for us we were able to score seats at the bar outside - which was beautiful. The water fountain spouting, the warm breezes blowing so all was right with the... More
