After trying Michael's again twice recently, I thought I would put in my $.02. My last meal at Michael's was their Seafood Cannelloni special for $20.95. I was in the mood for something different and this sounded appealing. Described as two homemade pasta sheets wrapped around fresh lobster, scallops and shrimp, with a fettuccine alfredo sauce, I thought I was... More

I love this restaurant for anything during the week but on Friday nights it's crazy. So we do fish fry take out. They give a good amount of everything including clam chowder. I wish someone could invent some kind of take out box so the fish stays crispy. We live close so it's not to bad. We like the taste... More

We love this restaurant because they serve gluten free pasta dishes and pizza! It has nice atmosphere and a separate bar if you just want to stop in for cocktails.

Very friendly staff, reasonably priced Italian dishes, consistently flavorable dishes. Great any night of the week. Be sure and try one of the many specials.

It was date night and we decided to use a Groupon and dine at Michael's. We were delighted. There are plenty of menu selections. The portions are generous. Both of our meals were very good. We will be coming back.

We stopped in on a Friday night for a fish fry and were pleasantly surprised we didn't have to wait for a table. Our waitress was prompt and quickly got our drinks and order. The baked fish was very good, but a few of the fried fish weren't tasting very good. We explained that to our waitress and she promptly... More

Although we we a large party (16), and with a very full restaurant, the food and service was first rate. Try their seafood, it's worth the price.

My book club met there and one of our members had retired that day so we started in the lounge which as anyone might suspect was dimly lit and poured a stiff drink. When we sat for dinner it was at a large round table with a pristine white tablecloth. The room is richly furnished but the menu called to... More
