Very scrumptious seafood and friendly and attentive staff. Sure glad we stopped in. Many cars in the lot! So others thought so too.

It has been two years since we were at Michael's and I am glad to see the only thing that changed is that we are two years older. The food was very good as usual and the prices remain the same, very reasonable for good quality seafood. Our server was a young man who greeted us and was very knowledgeable... More

We have come here numerous times over the last 7 years. Always loved the chowder. They changed their menu, taking off some of our favorites. The last time we were there, the chowder was totally different then it used to be. It looked different, smelled different and definitely tasted different (Not for the better) The waiter denied that there were... More

Restaurant is set in a strip mall. Not much of a setting. Food was delivered quickly and was good. Great value and the home made soups were excellent.

Decided to try something new and go with the whole shell fish dinner (Admirals delight). As a first time eater of oysters (steamed) I was impressed. Although, their Seafood Chowder stole the show!! HOLY CRAP it was awesome! A bowl was enough to satisfy three of us.

We have gone to Michael's Seafood over the years since they were located next to the old Food Lion. Ive always enjoyed the chowder and cornbread..and that's what they are known for. But the last few times we have been ,including today ,we have been increasingly dissatisfied with the award winning chowder. It seems they started out using imitation crab... More

we ordered the Admiral's seafood platter. WOW! we could not believe the quantity or quality of the meal. The platter included mussels, shrimp, crab legs and oysters as well as cobs of corn and smashed red potatoes. The platter was more than enough for both of us.
