Have been coming to Key West for over 15 years and have never eaten here, even though our friends always raved about it. Well let me say our meal was fantastic. They are known for their steaks, but my seafood meal was as good as I've had in Key west. Will definitely being visiting next year.

I could immediately sense that Michael's, Key West, is a favorite among sophisticated local diners and already well-reviewed enough to attract newcomers. I'm hesitant to start with dessert but the key lime pie was magic...My friend and I took a break from seafood for the evening and enjoyed perfect salads and filets...exemplary service from an expert staff...just the experience you're...

We found Michael's about 10 years ago when celebrating our 20th anniversary. We had a fabulous meal, and I loved the lava cake! Afterwards, we learned about the small bites and fondue menus. We are fondue lovers and have been stopping in for a fondue dinner every time we are in Key West. It is absolutely delicious and way out-classes... More

We loved the menu online while researching our four nights in KW, and man o man did this place live up to our hopes. Wonderful place, great service, super menu, great drinks and wonderful food. Hiding in a residential neighborhood...you should seek it out for a special night out. Not cheap but worth it. We had a tuna app, an... More
