It could be so good, but at the end of the day the point of a "nice" restaurant is to serve food better than you can cook yourself. Chef? Don't think so. Over cooked fish, served with the same bland selection of vegetables that came with my partners duck and mango jam. Whoever cooks at this place has no love of food and no respect for their customers. It's all hype, especially the prices, and no substance. Avoid.

I went there with family for thanksgiving, a very nice place to dine, excellent service, a very large dinner with all the trimmings, needed a to go container! All was great except the turkey, very dry and bland. I would return in spite of the meat as their fish is most excellent! Thanks for treating my family so well!

I have always prepared Thanksgiving diner at home for the family. For over 50 years we have had a house full of people. This Thankgiving it was just my sister and I. We landed up at Chef Michael's and we were not disapointed. They had their regular menu but also offered a turkey diner with all the trimmings. Stuffing, sweet pot. mashed, fresh cranberry green bean, etc. The turey was moist and full of flavor. We may have started a new tradition! Service was super friendly and we feel the price was a great value. If you are traveling through Islamorada Chef Michael's is worth a stop. Just make sue it's for diner they open ay 5:00pm.
