Good food - over priced!

The food was good but in our opinion it was over priced. We went for dinner. We order sea scallops it came with thinly sliced cooked squash and zucchini over risotto. I counted there were 7 scallops (the were a little bigger than a quarter but not as big as a half dollar) on each plate for 23.00... read more

We were lucky enough to be served Chowder from Micheal's at a Hammerhead catered game. None of us were that hungry but every thing looked really good and fresh. When you are not hungry and something knocks your socks off-it has to be good. Heavy on the fish - nice creamy comfort in a bowl. I cant imagine how good... More

Tried this place looking for seafood while vacationing in Carolina Beach. Best meal of the week! Great salad- especially liked the champagne vinaigrette. Service was excellent and flexible with special requests. Would definitely eat here again.

We went to dinner here a few times to make that maybe we were not being picky but the food portion are lunch size at dinner prices. They are clean and tasty but way over priced.

Michael's was our last stop on a week long vacation at Carolina/Kure Beach. I was on a crab cake binge this week! I selected their offering of two crab cakes, veggies and risotto. The crab cakes were a bit small in comparison to others I had earlier in the week but they were very good. The remoulade was the BEST... More

Get the seafood chowder. It is probably the best chowder we have ever had. True to its fame, it is award winning chowder. Can't remember what else we ordered because the soup was so good! Lol!

The weather was horrible but inside the food was great as usual. I at at Michael's whenever I am in the Wilmington/Carolina Beach area. There are a lot of places that specialize in seafood but few who provide the quality at a reasonable price. The Chicken Tortilla soup was just what I needed to open my sinuses so I could... More

If nothing else you cannot miss this for their Chowder. You can eat at a table, but at Michaels I like to eat at the bar because of the atmosphere and great bartenders' service. If you can, try their Thursday night half price wine, beer and appetizer specials available 'til end of May. - shrimp peel your own or cleaned... More
