Phew! Just as good as I remembered!

Let's have a light lunch, we said. Fat chance! Fish and chips, for him, smoked pork chop for me. Every taste is just the best ;- chips, so, so crispy with soft centres ; fresh homemade co!eslaw and tartare sauce ; moist fish in light-as-a- feather- batter ; SMOKED pork chop?

My wife and I stopped in last night for just a quick bite. We were seated quickly, had a great waitress, and food out quick. I had the red beans and rice, my wife had seafood gumbo. Both were very good.

J Michael's is my go to restaurant when visiting PCB for seafood. The food is amazing and so is the staff. Try one of my favorite appetizers the cheese curds when you go. You will not be disappointed with the food or the price. Take a drive to St. Andrew's State Park when you leave and enjoy the sunset and... More

We ate at J Michaels in late December and there was a big crowd there. Our server, Samantha, was excellent. She answered our questions and made suggestions. She made sure everything was right with our experience. We both had the fried seafood platter. It was served with a large, fresh salad. The fish, shrimp, scallops, and oysters were lightly breaded...

Was looking for some good seafood and got a tip to try this place. The food was good and so was our waitress Angie! Will be coming back soon! And we hope they will have the catfish so that we can try that out!

The oysters were out of this world. And the service was great. This is a local favorite and has a casual low key vibe. Be sure and eat here

We were at J. Michael's on a Tuesday night and it was packed. Three of us ordered the fish and chip special and the platter was piled high with great tasting fish. The sauces are home made and the tartar sauce was excellent. Service was good and we will return to J. Michael's the next time we are at the... More
