Used to be my favorite.

This was our "go to" for special occasions. Unfortunately we have started going elsewhere now as the staff is not what it used to be. Last weekend started with a snippy hostess and a short tempered snappy bartender. Our waitress was very good and very nice. Decided on the fish because I didn't... read more

A good 'ol Supper Club. Nothing real right with it and nothing real wrong with it. The steaks were good. Not aged but a nice cut of meat. Service was OK.

We usually order their spcialty, prime rib which never disappoints, but all you can eat crab legs was the special that evening. A little work but yummy!

We had been to Michael's years ago and were looking forward to another great dining experience. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. Our appetizer was served after we had the soup and salad. My husband had to send his prime rib back because it was too tough to cut or eat. The second one served was better but still not to the... More

Michael's House of Prime is located approximately 2 miles north of I-94 and Hwy SS in Pewaukee. The restaurant has been around for a long time and has a nautical theme that might be a bit dated. There is very little parking around the restaurant itself and a valet is provided who will shuttle vehicles off site while patrons go... More

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.
