If they had a contest in Key West for the best bartenders, Suzette and Nancy would win the prize. We've been coming here for over ten years, and the menu always gets updated with a few new twists. One of the best places in town for crisp, fresh salads, small plates, as well as seafood and beef. On our most... More

We were very impressed with Michael's! We started with the house salad to split and it was the best salad I've ever had. So many ingredients that paired so nicely together. The oysters are a must! Each is served in an individual spoon with avocado cream among other tasty ingredients. The seared tuna was delicious as was the crab cake... More

There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed our meals My husband had a veal chop it was excellent I had the snapper outstanding.I made reservations a few weeks ahead of time because we wanted a garden seating. Everything was perfect

We walked to dinner at Michaels! We arrived a few minutes early, we chose an outdoor table near the fountain! Perfect evening weather in the Keys! Greeted with knowledgeable staff (Moses), started with cocktails before ordering, I had a "Naughty School Girl", light and refreshing. My dinner "Shrimp Pappardelle" was ribbons of fresh pasta in a light key lime parmesan... More

Went for dinner with friends after a nice day in Key West. The food is ok, the fish we had had tomato sauce on it they tasted like it was out of a can. The steaks are better apparently. Definitely overpriced. Outdoor seating is a must on a nice evening if you end up going

I love going to Michael's to eat at the bar. It's always fun. I'm local, so I usually know someone, or go with friends, but I also love meeting new people traveling through town. Sitting at the bar is a good way to do that. Food is always yummy, but I stick to my favorites - Meatloaf is the boss,... More

Michael's is DELICIOUS! We were a party of four, with two being picky eaters, and we all four enjoyed every bite. Make reservations in advance - you will not be disappointed!

Dined at Michael's last night and had a lovely meal. Had cocktails before dinner. The blueberry vodka lemonade was so tasty I ended having 3 of them. Had their meatloaf for a change and it was quite good. Both of my dinning partners had seafood and they loved it. The big bonus is that is not a tourist trap and... More

Eponymous Michael's is off the beaten path. Tucked into a quiet neighborhood with seating indoors and outside. We've gone 2 years in a row. Last year we ate there twice it was so good. First time was at the bar, then we made a reservation. If you can't get a reservation try being seated at the bar. To me I... More
