Wonderful seafood

We visited here for lunch with several family members. Everything was fresh and well prepared. Crab cakes were outstanding. Somewhat expensive but well worth given the quality. Very friendly staff nice and clean. Can't wait to visit again

In a previous review some time back, I complained about the fake maple syrup which arrived in a plastic packet with the brunch Belgian waffles. The next time I went to the restaurant, they served the syrup in a porcelain ramekin and I was assured it was the real deal. This past Sunday, I asked the waitress AGAIN if it... More

Some of us decided to meet at Michael's for after work small plates and drinks. We decided to sit at the inside original bar and it was quite comfortable. Our drinks were served promptly and were well made and of a good size. We all ordered small appetizers and some salads. Although portions were generally small, the quality of the... More

What a delightful evening to be seated on the patio and getting the chance to hear Pat O’Brennan sing. Our party of 5 had a great time. Rusty, our server, was terrific – seeing to our every need. Everyone tried something different and was pleased with their appetizers and dinners. I especially enjoyed the Combo Favorite – potato skins, Buffalo... More

Michael's is one of the best restaurants in Northern Baltimore County. They have a good sized dining room and a comfortable sports themed bar area with comfortable, roomy booths. The "bar" has the same menu as the dining room. We had lunch in the bar area recently. The TV's are not too loud, the atmosphere is not rowdy at all.... More

Worst shrimp bisque, it tasted like cream of cornstarch with small frozen shrimp, not worth the time or money.

Visited last night with family. My husband's and my first visit. Granted it was a Friday evening and there was restaurant week menu but at that time not that busy. First, our guest noticed the prices on several of the entrees were much higher than on the web page (some by $7.00). Secondly, one dining partner received the wrong entree... More

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, I had the special, sautéed soft-shell crab sandwich. A tad pricey... 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.
