“Best Kept Secret in Savannah”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

A local friend introduced me to this restaurant on a recent visit. I never would have found it on my own.....but the locals know it well. We ordered the Baltimore Style Crab Cake and Gramma's Angel Cheese Cake Pie. Both were the best I have ever eaten. The service was excellent and friendly. The Crab Cake had huge hunks of crabmeat and minimum breadcrumbs. Gramma's Angel Cheese Cake was rich and light at the same time. And the coffee was fresh and delicious. I would definitely go to Michael's Cafe frequently, if I lived in Savannah.

“A hidden little gem of a restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

We have been dining at Michael's since last October (2011) and it is our favorite! They have a limited but outstanding menu that consistently meets our high standards for quality and expertise in preparation. The two highlights are the Crab Cakes (ALL crab meat and virtually no filler) and their French Pork Chops. WOW! The meal always begins with the rich Onion Soup ( loaded with cheese), the crisp and very fresh mixed salad, the main course and then finishes with their "home recipe" of Praline or Blueberry cheese cake ( like no other....very light and whipped to something unlike most cheese cake). Everything is prepared while you are there and nothing is "zapped" and served.
We have NEVER been disappointed in the delightful meal and friendly service. We have dined in many 4-5 star restaurants in NYC, Hong Kong, Honolulu and Europe so know very good food when we taste it......and Micheal's offers a competitive run to any restaurant in Savannah. They do not serve wine ( so bring your favorite vino with you) and do not expect linen table cloths except on Fri/Sat nights.....these are small exceptions to enjoying an excellent meal! I,for one, want them to grow and be successful so we can continue to enjoy their fine offering. Try it....you will love it!
