The food tasted amazing, and the server was very kind. especially during this pandemic. They had a buffet, but they served you, and the workers wore masks. They have some of the best Italian dressing that I put on my salad and some good fried...chicken. Felt like I was right at home enjoying a home-cooked meal.More

Michaels is know for its excellent buffet which includes fried fish and chicken and tasty vegetables. They have a good salad bar and a couple of desserts as well. A very good deal in a family atmosphere

We stopped at Michael's for lunch after a visit to the hospital. We took the $11.00 buffet. It included the best fried catfish, fried chicken livers and fried chicken that I've had in a very long time. Michael's is a simple restaurant on the edge...of town. Excellent hot trays with vegetables, mashed potatoes, and banana cream pie. Good time there for all.More

Food is excellent home cooking such as fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn and green beans. Service is always great and never have to wait on food.

I used to frequent Michael's but the last 2-3 times I ate there, I was quite disappointed. The food was barely warm and tasted re-cooked. Item containers went empty for several minutes (too long). I haven't been back in a few months.

I absolutely love this place. Everything is always good! The salad ingredients are always fresh and they have such a variety. Just good country cooking, friendly service, and reasonable prices. They have the best banana pudding ever and some other awesome desserts. Always can't wait...to go here!!More

OK..... Here's the scoop! I live over 500 miles from this restaurant but "I just happened to be in the area" and asked someone where to get some good old down home cooking. This young man didn't even blink when he quickly told me about...Michael's in Ravenna "just down the road"..... Best fried chicken on the planet! I mean everything was wonderful but PLEASE..... It has to be fresh, never frozen, chicken to taste like that. However, even after all the chowing down on absolutely delicious food, I happened to notice the home made banana pudding and I mean just like Grandma used to make.... I travel all over the country and seldom post a review on an eating place in a really small town not many people have even heard of but Goodness Sakes it's GOOD!More

The good is great here. We also used this establishment to cater food for a wedding. They didn't do the catering but they gave us a great price on the food we needed and were very helpful in preparing it for travel and making sure...there was enough for what we needed. We were very pleased with them.More
