“good crab cakes for the location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Difficult to get to or get reservations at Inner Harbor when we were there. Michael's Cafe has a nice menu and genuine crab cakes for the outer areas. No trouble getting a reservation and service was quite good.

“Great service and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Good food, great service, and great atmosphere. Not the best I have ever had, but I would go back. Easy to get to. Good crowd for a Thursday night.

“great local spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Was in Baltimore visiting family and went to this place twice. great food and service. The prices are a little steep but it was a super nice lunch experience. Everyone in my group loved the food and the portions are big.

“Good food, but pricey for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

I went with a group of 6 people for lunch. I had the tomato, shrimp and feta salad. My only complaint was that the tomato was somewhat unripe, a concern when it is in the title of the salad. That being said, I still enjoyed the salad. One friend had the shrimp salad sandwich, another had the chicken salad sandwich and a third had the blt. All three enjoyed their sandwiches quite a bit. However, all three sandwiches plus the salad were between $12 and $15 making them a little pricey, particularly at lunch. Interestingly, another friend got the rib special, which at $14, was a great deal. Overall, everything was good, but most was expensive. I believe it was the the same menu as at dinner, so for dinner it would be a better value.

“Wonderful food and atmosphere but very slow service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

I eat at Michael's several times a year and always look forward to returning. I love the beautiful, relaxing interior and the comfortable booths. The food is always great. Today, however, my service was unusually slow. The waitress was doing the best she could. Apparently they failed to staff properly for Memorial Day when more people will be eating out than on a regular Monday. This is foreseeable with the use of a calendar. I expect better planning from a superior restaurant like this. Nevertheless I will be back.
