“Just right.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Everything was just right. The thoughtful and friendly attitutdes from all of the servers. The Chianti, The pino, and the flight tasting. The carpaccio. The calamari. My lobster pasta special of the day. My husband's filet. If we had planned on as perfect an experience and perfectly delicious meal, it never would have unfolded as right as it did. Thank you Alex and everyone at Michael Anthony's. We can't wait to return.

“Class Act”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Michael Anthony’s has been our favorite restaurant for many years and they continue to do a first class job - always a friendly welcome at the front door, personable and knowledgeable servers (Ian, Alex and Justin are personal favorites) and of course amazing food! I am a creature of habit and usually order the same thing when going back to a restaurant but I do have several favorite dishes here – beet salad or calamari and always the gnocchi (they took my favorite penne dish off the menu but will still make it for me!) We took friends here this week and they loved loved loved the lobster pasta special and the osso bucco. We can always count on a delicious meal and exceptional service here and this is our go-to place to bring out-of-town guests for a first class dining experience.

“Always a great bet”

MA has been on the island for years and has maintained it's consistency even with the loss of the head chef. All the dishes are great, service and friendly staff make a night at MA enjoyable.

“Should have gone to Ela's....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Michael Anthony's does one thing right--fettucini Alfredo. And man oh man, is it wonderful! Too bad the best thing about our meal was the side dish....We regret going here and wish we had just gone back to Ela's Bluewater grill as Ela's is hands down the best food in SC!

“"The real deal" - great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Friendly and accommodating hostess, professional and knowledgeable waiters/waitress; sauce tastes like my mother-in-laws from Italy. A wonderful evening.
