average food, average service. Waitress tried to join in conversation about Iphone usage. We had water glasses on the table. One of us ordered a bottle of San Pellagrino, and she brought four more water glasses. Odd. Our group of 4 was seated at a round table for 6. This was at 6 PM on a Saturday night, with a... More

On the spur of the moment, we decided to go to Michael’s for dinner. We were able to secure a quick reservation thru Open Table. We requested a quiet table and they did try. However, the restaurant is not conducive to quiet – too many hard surfaces. Our server came over quickly, took our drink order and answered all of... More

This was a really nice place to brunch! The food was pretty good and the bottomless mimosas for $11 was a great value! Banana Fosters was excellent! The Brie omelette was a little over powering, I was not a fan. Location was not great but the inside was nice! I would visit again for sure.

When to Michael's for dinner couple weeks ago. The service was very good. The food was very good. Was a little noisy for conversation. They have outside seating, but by the road. I would recommend them.

Once you come here a few times, you are on of the family. Veronica is the best bartender ever. My sister and I like our drinks a special way and she makes them for us as soon as we walk in. They are known for the crab cakes which are excellent, but just about everything on the menu is great.

Went for a seminar and they held it here and served lunch. The waitress was friendly. Food was good with lots of options. I had shrimp salad which was good. Key lime pie was good too.

We sat on their patio which offered a fair amount of shade, which was great since it was hot and sunny that day. I ordered the crabcake sliders with a wedge salad. Both were very good. So was the fresh squeezed Orange Crush--a perfect thirst quencher! Service was fast and friendly and the bathroom was clean. It was my first... More

Not sure how I feel about this place based on my most recent visit. Some very good things but a lot of negatives for the price. First, there was a fly in the restaurant that seemed to love our table. It creeped us out a bit. Second, the restaurant is very noisy. We both had cream of crab soup which... More

On May 6 my wife and I drove to Timonium for a two day stay at the Hunt Valley Marriott Courtyard on Internationals Drive. We had no idea it would take us 6 hours to do a drive normally taking only 3. We were so whipped when we got on 83 north of the 695 Beltway. We wanted a good... More
