Michael's has a variety of entrees with something for everyone's taste. The meal and service have always been excellent in my experience and since we live in the village we go there on most special occasions.

I couldn't answer that. I don't think anyone ordered any and I don't remember any on the menu. My advice is to call Michael's.
