This restaurant has been around for years and we've always ignored it. I believe years ago my husband even made reservations for our anniversary and we walked in and turned around and walked back out. It's just not where you would expect to find a delicious five-star meal. The atmosphere is dusty old-school nautical. It probably has the same decor... More

Love this place. The food and service was outstanding. The diners at our table had steaks and prime rib. Did not disappoint. The drinks were great and the amount of food they brought to the table, well what can I say! Parking is limited, however, they offer valet and they do have a parking lot across the street. We will...

We hadn't been to Michael's for at least 20 years, and it didn't disappoint! The decor is nautical and probably hasn't been changed or updated for years, but WOW, the food was still outstanding. We were there with another couple and 2 of the 4 had the prime rib--it was perfect. Another had the pepper steak special which he said... More

A friend recommended Michael's to me and we stopped here on a Friday night. They start out with fresh rolls, crackers and spreads, and with the meal order we also had soup and salads. I had a prime rib, which was huge compared to any other steaks I've had in the past elsewhere. It was very tender and had great... More

The decor is a kind of dated, nautical themed. The service was outstanding. The menu is very simple, stakes and shrimp, but the food was REALLY good and included soup, salad, and bread. Good value, I would go again.

This old time supper club is one of my favorites. However over the last few years it has been inconsistent, either really good or terrible. Chefs? My favorite Veal al la chef's style was good this time....last time burned. So I am hoping that it stays good. My husbands ribeye was delicious....I would recommend this place, I hope they hit...

Enjoy stopping for special night out! Good food across from Pewaukee Lake. Has a bar that is Quint! Has a grand Mom and Pop fancy feel to it. You meet upscale neighbors out for fishfries on Fridays. Known for their great primerib.Great service! Is a small place with vallet parking. Only does dinners.

So, overall, this is a nice place to get a quality meal. The surrounding are nice, but this is more like a bar with an area for seating, rather than a restaurant with a bar. It is in a quaint area, and the valet parking is really a plus on this busy road with limited parking. I have the bone-in... More
