Cook walked out today.

My friend is allergic to shellfish. Reassured it would not be an issue. She began to eat her good and found a shrimp in her fries. Not good. Cook walked out today waited too long for food and my gumbo was warm and the worst I have had in town. My fish and chips were good and the best... read more

Terrible food and even worse service. My family sat for over 2 hours before we even saw our appetizer. Even the appetizer was bad, the oysters had shells and were cold. NOT family environment and would not recommend what so ever. I would give an even lower rating but that isn't even possible. Do not go not worth it at... More

I have be a faithful patron of J Michaels for over 30 years. I visit PC a couple times a year and it's always first place I hit when on town. Over the years the prices have gone up (so has everything else) but the food and service is consistently very good. One suggestion would be to arrive early to... More

A "local" recommended this restaurant to us so we expected great things. We were extremely disappointed in the service and the food was just awful. We waited over an hour for a table, then waited another hour for our food. It was cold when the server brought it.

The entire family loved J Michael's. The food was excellent and although we had to wait it was well worth it!! I would definitely recommend trying the different oysters they have!! You can even watch the man behind the oyster bar shuck them!!

Wasn't going to go because the outside looked a little rundown, but it was getting late so we decided to try it. They had a little table for the kiddos to color and play and even watch tv. Food was AWESOME!! Amazing Crab Legs! Amazing Grouper! Amazing Chili! A must stop location!! Neat and very clean inside!!
