After the Preakness for the last 5 years, we have dined, with 4 other couples, at the restaurant. Previously the experience has been something to talk about. A lot of horse people frequent the restaurant after the races. This year was just like the other years, but, I know the but showed up... read 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.

My brother and I have made it a point to dine at this restaurant for the last five years we have stayed in Timonium during Preakness weekend. A good friend of ours who works in the valet parking at Pimlico Racetrack first recommended this place to us. So glad he did! I've tried crab cakes in and around Maryland and... More

Hello, My wife & I dine at Michaels at least two times a week & we enjoy your menu immensely. Especially your cream of crab soup (all crab meat dishes), shrimp salad sandwich (all shrimp dishes), & scallops ala Michael. My wife says we could go on and on with what we enjoy, but I’ll stop there. We also want... More

Never been here on a Sunday afternoon before. Very quiet, non-busy time. Great for a relaxing late lunch/early dinner. Had one of my favorites, their shrimp salad platter. Large serving of well seasoned shrimp salad, slice of tomato, lettuce, cucumber slices, cole slaw, and a deviled egg. Always fresh and good. Had a bowl of their mixed crab soup, 1/2... More

We were the area for business and so many people raved about this restaurant so we gave it a try. We called and made reservation. The other person on the phone said to come a half hour earlier just in case we would be seated sooner. 6 total in the party we sat for over 45 mins waiting for our... More

The appetizers at the bar were tasty, so I had high hopes for dinner. It was "Mediterranean" night, and I ordered a Greek salad and a lamb chop. The salad was presented but I had no silverware, after sitting for a while, my friends were able to flag someone down to bring silverware. The salad was edible, which is more... More

My wife's soft shell crab was a big as a baseball catcher's mitt. My ribs were excellent. Sat outside and were encouraged to bring our Cairn Terrier to sit with us. It was so pleasant! Ice cold drafts, good wine selection made this Saturday afternoon and absolute delight. Would go back again when in the area.

I really enjoyed this restaurant, and I am a very picky eater. It has at least two different types of atmospheres for your dining experience. We were near the bar which was brighter and perfect for mingling. There is a more subdued atmosphere when you walk in which looked like a nice room for small groups dining together. My husband,...
