Michael's is one of the few Balto. restaurants which carries stone crabs. Every year, when I can't make it down to South Florida in Winter, I get my fix here. But be warned, everyone, when I went yesterday, they wanted $68.00 for 5 small claws! I don't think so! Instead, I'll head over to Graul's for steamed and cracked to... More

Business lunch, three women, we were led across the dining room with available white-tablecloth tables to an empty over flow area off the bar. Not acceptable. Food was average. Service was average. Bill was above average.

My wife and I use to come here all the time but with kids, our frequent outings aren't so frequent anymore. Michael's has always promised A good meal and even still continues to do so. Just a bit pricey for the size of the portions.

Love good Maryland Crab Cakes and this place did not disappoint. We had appetizers and crab cakes and seafood and salads and sides and everything was delicious. Debbie, our waitress, was incredible. And they have a very nice wine selection. So glad this place was recommended to us by an employee at the Humidour Cigar Shop. Our visits to the... More

This was my first time at this restaurant (Sept 2014). I had popcorn shrimp as an appetizer followed by the 5 oz fried crab cake with baked potato and coleslaw. The shrimp were great but a little larger than what I expected (but that's OK!). The crab cake was delicious with no noticeable filling/binder and no oily taste. The ambience... More

A group of us went here for lunch to celebrate a birthday. First off, they had given our reservation to another group. One group of women looks like another? The food was good; we were all happy with our meals. If you are a seafood fan, this is your place. Wonderful soft crabs. Service could have been a little more... More
