“Classic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Have dined multiple times here, over the years and have never been disappointed. Nothing pushing the gastronomic envelope, but just well prepared and satisfying. Ambiance is fairly nice, but nothing special.

“Fantastic sums up everything about this restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

We booked this restaurant for an 80th birthday celebration. The manager was very accommodating, the food was excellent with great variety even for kids, and the service was fantastic! We plan to go there again sometime and highly recommend it to people.

“Birthday dinner at Michael's back door”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

Went to this restaurant based on a small ad in the local paper. The food was excellent, the service was superb. Only complaint is the tables are way to close and when full the restaurant is very loud. Also the restaurant was empty and the staff was gone by 10:15 pm on a Friday night. A little early but still worth a visit! The lobster ravioli was to die for!!!!!

“A Hidden Jewel in Clarkson....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Michael's is a special place to have dinner for a special occasion or to take a client. Excellent atmosphere, great service and excellent menu. A little pricey but this is a special place.

“Very Good!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

I haven't been to Michael's Back Door in many years, it's a quirky kind of restaurant that you have to know how to get to.

Food was excellent and waiters were professional waiters. Family enjoyed this meal greatly, not sure this is a regular place to bring the family due to cost but definately would recommend it!
