We dined at Anthony Michael's on April 10th. I know it's cliche to say it, but I NEVER review places online but our experience was so outstanding that I wanted to do it this time. Every course in our meal was exceptional and the wine was very good, as well. Our server Finnie was extremely attentive and helpful with food... More

When I went there I didn't know what to expect. I thought it was going to be another olive garden. When I got there and saw it was totally different than I expected, I couldn't wait to go inside. The atmosphere had the Italian feel to it and the staff was friendly and knew their wine.

Michael Anthony's is a great food experience at a reasonable cost. The waiters (and we had 3!) were very professional and treated us as though we were having a $100 dinner instead of the $19.95 early bird which, by the way, was excellent.

We accidentally came across this place and lived ur sui much came back the next day too. In addition to great food they have a fantastic early bird special with a3 course meal under $20. It is a select menu but with wide variety.

This was at least our fourth year to dine at Michael Anthony's on our anniversary, and everything was delicious. We each ordered one of the early dinners, which included appetizer, entree and dessert choices for $19.50 per person. From the moment we were seated, the service was outstanding. Our server was very personable, and knowledgeable. I ordered a Caesar salad... More

Enjoyable evening with friends. Upscale Italian. They have a very good moderately priced wine list. The food was very good although not super exceptional. I would recommend that they add small plates of their pasta dishes for appetizers.

Michael Anthony's has always been a must when we are in the Hilton Head area. The food, service, and atmosphere are all top notch. Try the cooking classes as well, not only do you learn to make some great dishes, you get to sample the same.
