“"Terrific food and service"!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I have very erratic schedules and we rely on this restaurant for our meals quite frequently. The food is phoenomal and so are the staff! We always look forward to the attention we receive. Our new favorite waitress is Lynn, she always makes us feel welcome and bends over backwards to accommodate us even when the place is packed!! I'm always impressed with ALL the staff but Lynn stands out because she's so personable and more like "your friend" rather than someone who's just there to make tips off of you. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy Michael's and our friendly welcoming waiters and waitresses. Keep up the good work and we'll keep coming!

“Good food, but unusually loud service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

We try to eat a Michael's because we like to support the local restaurants.
The food is terrific and we have always enjoyed the quality of the steaks and a lot of the other menu items.
We went there last Tuesday night and when we walked in the door, we heard someone very loud.
It turned out to be one of the waitresses. We thought-gosh, we don't want to get her! As luck would have it, we did. We have been going to Michael's for at least 5 years and the wait staff have always been as close to perfect as any restaurant we have been in. However, this waitress was loud, threw the food down on the table (not in a mean way, but just rough), and cleared other tables and slid the tables and chairs like a thrashing machine. She was friendly enough, but maybe should work at waffle house. She is also not "my friend" as she told everybody within the sound of her voice. Needs a little more training.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

I love eating at this place, so glad to have a really good non-chain restaurant in Rock Hill. My particular favorites are the blackened salmon capellini (blackened salmon, butter, cream, and parmesan cheese, how can you go wrong?) and the fried asparagus appetizer. The service is usually very good, too, and the prices are reasonable. I do have a bone to pick (I've mentioned this to a waiter, but apparently it hasn't been addressed). The side salads are usually good, but they use a bagged salad mixture for their dinner salads that contains a high percentage of iceberg lettuce. Which isn't necessarily bad in itself, except that the person that preps the salads doesn't pick out the undesirable white pieces of iceberg that are close to the core (ugh, those pieces that you would tear off and throw away if you were making your own salad).

“Great Little Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

My friends and I work in Rock Hill and eat here periodically for lunch or after work get-togethers. Service is wonderful - their staff are very personable and eager to do whatever they need to make your experience a good one. The food is delicious and includes offerings unique to this restaurant and not available anywhere else. I especially like the cherry chicken pasta - and if you're in the mood for dessert you MUST try the bananas foster. Good stuff!
