Michael's is a great place for pizza. We have eaten in and do take out. Pizza is always good. Service is pleasant. Sometime the wait is long depending on the crowd. Michael's is definetly one of our go to places for our favorite pizza.

The staff has consistently been nice, and the drinks are good. Would say it's a value (depending how many drinks you get) for a nice dinner out.

They have NOTHING that says you need to speak to someone prior to pushing the "take win" or "cash out" button" so if you do not do that your out of luck. Treated me like I was trying to tip THEM off. So even though I have visited this establishment 5 times and recommended it several times in my short... More

Went for pizza and it was amazing. Great atmosphere. Can either dress up for a special occasion or be dressed down and just go for pizza. Will be back

This place is not what I remember. Many favorites are not in the menu anymore and the pizza was not as good as I had remembered. Disappointed as this was a go-to place for our family!!!

My wife and I have dined here many times, and always have had wonderful service and great food. The one thing that bothers me, is that we have never had the manager stop by the table and ask about our experience. In fact, I have no idea who the manager is because of his lack of presence in the restaurant.... More

My wife and I visited Michael's again recently and found their device and food to be very good, as usual. She had the Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich and I had the Veal Siciliano, served with a pasta side dish, and garlic bread. Everything was really good and with the ample portions, we left with enough for an additional meal later. Always... More

We really enjoy Michael's it's great food at a good price. The service is excellent and very friendly. Our favorite is the pizza. We go there instead of any place else. We have had crab legs, steak, spaghetti, we really enjoy the Italian atmosphere. The bar area is a bit small.

Michael's serves one of the best thin crust pizzas in the Milwaukee area. You cannot go wrong with their pizza. I can't recommend it highly enough. Don't miss it if you'r in the area. Michael's probably serves one of the top 10 pizzas in the entire state of Wis. I always get their cheese and sausage.

Thank Drew H
