We held a lunch for 10 people, all retirees from the same company. We had reservations and were seated in a semi-private dining room. Service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Several of us shared 2-dozen Chincoteague oysters. Very tasty and presented on beds of ice. Being in Maryland... read more

Good food but the Crab Cake is the BEST. We dine here often, the Crab Cake is always ordered. Other food is good and Tuesday lunch in the bar is 1/2 price burgers--great deal.

Crab Cake was just OK, nothing special. Waiter was real slow, asked for a beer waited over 30 minutes (we were there early place was empty) was almost finished with my lunch, he kept saying the bartender was pouring it, were in Ireland? Our table was rock and roll, tried to fix it with napkins forget it they could not... More

Went there for a Sunday brunch on their dog friendly patio outside. It's beautiful with stacked stone, fireplace, large umbrellas etc. I am not a dog guy, but not a dog hater either, it's still just a bit of a stretch for me to get used to a large hound being allowed to put it's head on my table while...

Been here about 6 times. Found out about the Sunday two pound lobster special ($25) with two sides. On this visit (Father's Day) I had the lobster deal while my wife had deep-fried soft-shell crabs. It was pretty busy but our server, John, kept up very nicely. T'was a bit noisy but still ok for conversation. Greek salad (we split... More

We stopped into Michael's for a late evening meal. I recognize that dropping by at 8:30pm was not the ideal time, but we had just finished an earlier event and wanted a sit down meal. Sadly the overall experience was average at best. The focus clearly was getting the dining room cleared and all energies were to move the crowd... More

Good location and extensive menu. They have plenty of seating and a great outdoor eating area. The Sunday brunch was great and the bottomless mimosa is a great idea. Very impressive dining spot.

The people seated next to us had a dog at the table. I was told it was a service dog. Not so! It was a pet that was passed around the table to be held by two or three of the customers. This was a filthy violation of health codes. What else do they do in there that endangers the... More

We went here right after our son's graduation from college with friends from out of town. The atmosphere is fantastic! The service was superb and very accommodating for a large group. If you are in Maryland you should have crab cakes and these are the BEST!!!! There was an extensive wine and beer list and the prices were very reasonable.
