We ate at Michaels the last time we went to Carolina Beach and it was pretty good. It was only lunch the last time and I just had the Steamed Peel n Eat Shrimp. THIS time, last week, we went for dinner and it was truly one of the worst meals I've ever tired to eat. Either they just don't care or there's a new chef (cook) or it has changed ownership because we couldn't even eat it.
We both ordered the Lobster Bisque for an appetizer and it didn't look right from the time she sat it down on the table. When I tasted it I couldn't believe they were calling it Lobster Bisque. It was like dirty dishwater with little chunk in it. I immediately pushed it aside and looked up a my husband who was doing the same thing. THAT was just the appetizer. When the entrée came, it looked innocent enough...until we tasted it. I had the steamed and peeled shrimp which was actually ok but I don't recall ordering the mashed potatoes (with shrimp????) or the corn on the cob (a cobette actually). The corn was not hot and far from tasty, I took one bite and pushed it aside, butter wouldn't even melt on it! I ate the shrimp and that concluded my dinner. My husband ordered the Black Sea Bass. He took one bite and knew immediately that it had been frozen for quite some time. I tasted it and agreed. I don't recall what side dishes he had but our plates were almost still full when we were finished. We did tell the waitress that the soup was edible and she just took it away but didn't hesitate to charge us $4.50 per bowl. Needless to say we will NEVER darken their doorway again!!! I'm very surprised at the "glowing" reviews other people have given this restaurant because we know what good seafood is and this place doesn't have it!
