The food is good, the service is good, the folks are friendly and happy. The portions are large, and everything is clean and neat. What more can you ask for? I've gone back a few times when I'm in the area.

Eating out alone is not one of my favorite things but I felt super comfortable at Michael's Diner. The waitress was super friendly and down to earth and even nicer was not put at a table by the kitchen like many places would to hide a solo diner.

Enjoyed lunch here over Memorial Day weekend. We ordered the burger and French dip. The burger was a perfect sized and cooked just how I ordered it. The French dip was very tasty and huge, my dining companion couldn’t finish it. A nice casual spot to grab some comfort food.
