Outdoor seating was divine

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... read 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

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,...

Had dinner here on a weekend evening, make sure you have reservations as it was extremely full. I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The crab cakes are some of the best around. I would certainly go out of the way to stop in.

went here for dinner with a colleague. He had their oysters and said they were good (not my thing). Staff was very friendly and attentive. I ordered a steak and it was amazing. Good beer and wine selection as well as many different bourbons and whiskeys. I would like to come back during warmer weather to enjoy their patio bar.... More

For a restaurant that is supposedly noted for their MD crabcakes they were not all that good. I remembered them being much better in the past.The worst part is they were full of shells - some rather big. We mentioned it to our waiter and he said sorry but that's about it. Those who wanted the baby back ribs were... More

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I want to apologize for the experience you most recently had with us. We are in fact noted for our crab cakes. We are proud of that. It is my grandmothers recipe and we have never changed it. We spend literally hours a day picking the shells out of crab... More

I regularly pop into Michael's Cafe to carry out cream of crab soup, which is some of the best in the Baltimore area. Recently, I discovered that Michael's offers oyster stew on Fridays, and last Friday, I carried out a bowl for lunch--and it was so good that I returned that same night after a concert to carry out two...

Just wanted to grab dinner as a couple eating out on a Sunday late afternoon as we were in the area of Michael's, so we stopped in. The place was packed but we were seated in a comfortable 'high table' in the bar area. We ordered dinner of grilled salmon and another order of seared scallops, my favorite. This dinner... More
