“Went back after a year”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Live near Carolina Beach, they catered our daughters wedding and has always been a good experience. Haven't been in about a year - and it is different. Crab dip and toast points were burned and still served. Shrimp and grits were so-so. I ordered the fresh catch flounder and it was clearly a frozen product and I believe it was cod. Asked the manager and he insisted it wasn't and announced he was from NY - whatever that means. Very rude and belligerent. Was offered substitute by declined. Did not eat my fish nor the dry and oversalted vegetables, but still paid for my meal. My water with extra limes was good. Declined dessert when we learned it was the same owner as bakery next door which has been very disappointing the two times we have purchased there. Unfortunately will no be back - we often recommend to our guests and visitors we meet, will not do again.

“Good Food - Great Chowder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I ordered the Snow's Cut Combo which included crab legs, boiled shrimp, red garlic potatoes, and corn on the cob. The crab legs were delicious! They bring out corn bread if you ask for it. Our corn bread was cold but did have a good taste. The kitchen was a little slow but we are willing to wait if the food is good. The chowder was delicious! They have won several first prizes in the local Chowder Festival.

“Finally visted Michael's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have been going to Carolina beach for over 15 years and finally made a trip to Michael's. The food was OK, nothing fried, all steamed or boiled. It was a little pricey for what you get and there are not many selections for the non seafood eater in the group. We probably would eat there again, but would not wait in line to eat there.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Nothing real exciting. Food was ok, very expensive. Fish tanks were nice to view. Yes, having a group of 10 people service was slow.
