Was at outside bar tonight and enjoyed a great evening with family and friends. Auburn game , NFL game ,outdoor fireplace and the best crab cakes in MARYLAND! After reading some of the haters on here, I was hesitant but will now be a regular and thankful that the other idiots who say stay away wont be here. This place... 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

My sister is a waitress here and you would think she would be sick of eating here, but she likes eating here even on days she does not work. I have dined here half a dozen times. Always consistent quality and good service because the waiters help out one another which always helps speed. I am a freak for soft... More

Michael's is probably too expensive for what it is. That said, the food is consistently excellent. If they could somehow reduce their seafood and popular entree prices by about 8 dollars on average, this would definitely be one of the most popular, most frequented restaurants in Baltimore county. Not a t-shirt and jeans sort of joint. Avoid the bar area... More

Michael's came highly recommended by a friend that lives on the area. We were very pleased. Just some minor improvements needed. This must be what the locals are talking about when they say it is not as fabulous as it had been. But since it was our first time we were impressed. We went for dinner. I made reservations and...

Any true Orioles fan should not give this place business. They had the nerve to turn off the O's game 2-2 against Tampa in the 3rd and turn on a South Carolina v Texas A & M college football game (that wasn't even close). Everyone at the bar was watching the Orioles and Ravens preseason game and protested but because... More

We have attended Michael's on several occasions, before, during and after the construction. We have been very pleased with the service and food in the past. However we attended on a Friday night, something we have never done before. We called ahead to see how long the wait was and we were told 10 mins. We gave our name and... More

My husband and I decided not to go downtown for our anniversary and settled for Michael's. I wanted a crab cake, so we figured this would be a good choice, I was wrong. For an appetizer we ordered the crab and shrimp dip. We've had this appetizer before and it has always been delicious. It tasted like something was missing,... More

Michaels was always one of my favorite places for crab cakes. Until now. I went there for lunch in late July and was more than ready for one of the big delicious crabcakes. What a disappointment! The crab cakes wasn't awful, but it was far from the fabulous crab cakes I have eaten there in the past. The service was... More

I'm not a huge fan of buffet's so having a good brunch menu that's different from a lunch menu is awesome. They have unique waffles, Eggs Benedict (with crab meat and fried green tomatoes - my fav), really good sweet potato fries, plus many other yummy delights. They also have a bloody mary with old bay around the rim and... More
