The atmosphere was romantic but yet also good for families. The tables are little close together. The Panini's were great and the service was good.

I tried the roast beef chocolate wrap because it sounded interesting and it did not disappoint. It's not sweet but a hint of cocoa. The cannoli was awesome and their fudge is not too shabby. If you like a warm sandwich the panini and the meatball sub is on point. It's a must visit even though they are moving to... More

This was our second visit this year and I'm very pleased to share that the menu, quality of the meal and service was once again excellent. Great job all. No surprise it remains the top spot in this north Georgia town. Well worth the drive.

I am a 32 year old married mother of two. My family and I have been patrons of Michaellee's twice. The first visit was with a party of approximately six and the second visit was with seven. I will be focussing on my recent visit on December 21, 2014. The food was lovely but the staff although polite had an... More

We decided to try this gem when driving through the north GA mountains and had an amazing experience. Everything we ordered was incredible. Makayla, our waitress, was like a "lunch whisperer" and helped us pick the perfect items for our lunch and an fantastically light and flavorful lemon berry cake that was delicious. Try the chocolate wraps... so good and... More

Great menu with options for even those who don't love chocolate. They have wonderful soups, salads that were savory and hummus made in house. They also have deserts that you will save room for or get it to go. The service was wonderful - our drinks were never empty and our waitress was nice enough to go through every single... More

This is a diamond in the mine of coal. The food at Michaelee's is outstanding. It is also consistent. We have eaten there for brunch, lunch and dinner and each experience has been great. The salads, panini's, and pasta dishes are great. One of my favorites is the glazed chicken dish but you can't go wrong with anything on the... More

There's a reason Michaelee's is top rated, and we think we have found it. CONSISTENT We have not visited here in over two years but continually brag on it as if we has been there 'Yesterday'. Visiting the area for a three-day wine tasting adventure and journey, we found ourselves passing within a few steps of the entrance. Dove stopped... More

We're almost as far north in Georgia as we can go on a Mountain Wine Country Weekend. From the minute I read about the Wine Trail. I was most excited about eating again at Michaelee's. It had been a couple years since I'd been there and it was just as good as before. My husband had a Caesar's salad and... More
