Best burger ever

Saw Tom F's review. Could not disagree more. Ordered the short rib, sirloin, brisket burger. It was perfect. Best I have ever had.

Fast friendly service and knowledgeable waiter. Great selection of wines by the Glass and bottle. The fresh Halibut Fish Special was outstanding! The BBQ spare ribs were fall off the bone tender. Great Dinner Salad and overall dining experience. I would definitely go there again.

went in with high expectations and really wanted to enjoy , started off bad when the waitress ask how I wanted my burger and requested medium rare, which she replied, they were not able to do because the burgers were all "pre cooked" ... WHAT ?!? nuf said.

I love a good burger. This was way beyond a good burger! All I can say is try it for yourselves. And, as always, wonderful, friendly service. Michael's never disappoints!

There were 4 of us that went out to dinner and everyone's meal was good. The prices were slightly above average but it was worth it.

First time visit. Great Happy hour drink specials. The food was so delicious. Friend and I shared the charcoal calamari which was sautéed in garlic oil, so good then the chicken piccata with lemon and capers, Too Die for! The other friend had the pinko breaded chicken with Parmesan and tomato sauce which was also very good. Generous portions good... More

We went last Saturday with another couple whose anniversary is a week before ours to celebrate both. This resturant had been on my list to try for a long time, and I'm very glad I did. The exterior is deceiving (it is in a strip mall) but once inside, we were all impressed with the high ceilings, lighting, and ambience.... More

Personal service and great food. I have been here multiple times and am impressed with the quality and consistent good experience every time. The owners greet you at the door and many of the wait staff have been with them for years. Don't be put off by the fact it is in a strip mall. It is charming and quiet... More

I must say that this restaurant was better then I expected. It is situated in a strip mall in Penfield, and from the outside it doesn't look like it's going to be overly accomplished in its cuisine...but it was. We arrived at 5:30 PM on Saturday, and we were the first ones there (or almost). But it fills up quickly... More
