My husband picked Michael's because he had come here years ago. It seemed to lack ambiance and there was a damp smell. Our food was OK but nothing I'd come back for. On our way out we noticed how worn their sign looks. It's too bad. I bet this was a nice place in its day.

I can imagine this place had a great past. In fact I used to go there for fish fries 10 or more years ago. From the outside it looks a little run down, but I decided to try it with my wife this past week. The server was fine, but a little chatty and stayed by our table quite a... More

Service is excellent, it is small but very comfortable. We like there Friday Fish Fry you can have either French fry's or potato pancakes, it is severed family.

We visited with another couple. It's been years since we were here last. Anne R. provided excellent attentive service Servings were one Filet Mignon (very good) and three Prime Ribs (good, but I've had better). A little on the pricey side but we all agreed we'd probably return some time in the future. Cocktails were generous and fairly priced.

For Great steaks and prime rib its a must in the Pewaukee/Waukesha area. They also have a very good Friday night fish fry. Parking is tight but they offer valet parking.

Great food, attentive service and a nice supper club ambiance. The fillet and prime rib were cooked perfectly.

Visited Michaels on a Sunday night. As a lover of prime rib we wanted to go to Ward's House of Prime but they were closed on Sunday. I've been to Michaels a few times and thought their prime rib was somewhere between ok to good. This time..not so good. Service was good, good value on a bottle of Duckhorn wine... More

Went with a group of 6. One of the cuts of Prime was much smaller than the rest. They did adjust the bill, which was good. But that one was also much fattier that the others as well. The order of onion strings was not all that big either. Service was excellent. Prime rib was very good.

Snippy bartender, EXTREMELY LONG WAIT (even with reservations); dry ribs, cold fries, overcooked and dry baked potatoes, crunchy "sauteed" vegetables. Not what we expected - or was told from other guests. Waitress was pleasant. Won't be going back.
