2nd year in a row we have eaten here on vacation!! Did not disappoint!!! Two people got the fried flounder and two got the seafood platter! All the food was excellent. From the fish to the scallops to the shrimp to the oysters to the side items - there was not a crumb to be had when we were done.... More

We got there around 7pm and there was the usual 45 minute wait. My wife & I decided to take a couple of seats at the bar. The beer was so cold ice would form in the top of the mug! The oysters were nice and fresh too! Our meals arrived quickly and the bar service was great. This place... More

Don't wait until 6pm to go for dinner here. The lines are long. Very casual atmosphere and good food. Lots of menu options

My Greek salad with grilled chicken was fine and my husband enjoyed his fish & chips - their batter is lighter than some, which is nice and the serving size was large. We took red beans & rice out for later that was nothing special. Our server was very pleasant & helpful and the cost was comparable with similar restaurants.... More

One of our favorites. Great Florida style seafood. Fried of course for many of the best items. Fried Flounder is my old stand by. The fried shrimp basket is unbelievable. The shrimp and pasta or the garlic shrimp are alway good. But the best are the desserts. The No-Name pie will make up do back flips.

Me. I'm more the Key Lime Pie type and I'd put this one up against anything in Key West. More

My wife and I have tried to get into J Michael's several times but the line around the building usually turns us away. We finally got in and had a good dinner. I had the Shrimp J Michael and it was pretty tasty, but I just wish it had a few more shrimp. It was mostly rice and maybe 5... More

My wife and I wanted some Gulf Shrimp and this place did not disappoint. We went early 4:30pm and was seated immediately. I ordered the Shrimp basket and fries. (Very good decision) you can tell that fresh shrimp taste! My wife ordered the Grouper sandwich and she really enjoyed. When we left around 5:30, it was getting crowded, but this... More

We found this gem a few years ago. We stop at least once every time we are in town. Love the food!!!! The fish special is my favorite. (It's listed on the special card at the bar)

After having several "corporate" style restaurants suggested by recent visitors to PCB, we asked the hotel manager who was a lifelong resident her favorite restaurant and without hesitation, she said J. Michael's.
