“Disappointed Again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

As much as I like to support local business Michales on Main disappointed me again. The first time I was brought Eggs Benedict with the eggs hard boiled and cut in half. Anther time everyone at the table was brought frozen, not cold, potatoes ...... REALLY frozen? Last night during the First Friday event the staff was just plain old fashion RUDE! RUDE! RUDE!
Everyone may in town may love Michales on Main.... I'm NOT one of them.

“Pleasant atmosphere, fire the cook...! ..great dessert menu, gelato is good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

We did not have a reservation, but were seated right away. There was some confusion as to which waitress would be serving us.
The menu was not so varied, but it looked good. We ordered a salad, which came in a bowl slightly larger than the cup of dressing put on it. After a few bites of warm lettuce and stale cheese, I found a rather large piece of plastic wrap in the salad. It was taken off the tab, the manager was quick to apologize, but wasn't to interested in making sure the rest of the order came out right. My husband's steak was overcooked, his potatoes were a mushy mess, and my chicken breast was cracked and dry.
They made it up by offering free dessert, but they did not say that- it was when I went to have a look around at the gallery and chocolate shop did the manager then tell our waitress, " they get dessert free"
If you go choose to go here, get sweets and ice tea - good!- or coffee... go for the items they have on display for sale. If you go for the food, you're likely to be disappointed.

“An Art Gallery with Taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Upstairs is a wonderful art gallery. Downstairs is a great everyday kind of restaurant. The old downtown building has been tastefully remodelled giving you an atmosphere you would usually only find in a larger city. The food is interesting and of high quality, but resonably priced.

“a destination!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Michael's on Main is a restaurant/art gallery/boutique/candy shop. Delicious gourmet food. Lunch sandwiches are reasonably priced but above average and interesting. Dinner choices are a nice variety and always excellent. Excellent art.
