Michaels Restaurant has been a part a part of the Highland community for generations. There's always been great service and menu choices. They've changed up their lunch choices and we enjoyed an affordable and delicious lunch there this week. I prefer to sit on the casual side by the bar and fireplace. In addition to the full menu, there is... More

A reception for the ages. Great music, fantastic food, and good drinks. The staff was very accommodating with a gluten free meal. I am a picky drinker so the bartender made some delicious cocktails for me on the fly. Even after the bride berated him for not having her favorite drink he was able to accommodate her. Great job Michaels!

Previous experiences at Michael's have been good. Easter buffet was disappointing at best and absolutely awful at worse. They should rename the buffet the "jello buffet". If you like twenty or so varieties of jello you might enjoy this. The food in general was terrible - three of the entries on the buffet were not even recognizable. They need fewer... More

Michaels is a nice little restautant in the adorable Highland area. When meeting my spouse for lunch, we almost always choose this stop if it isn't a Monday.

My wife and I have dined at Michael's many times over the past 30 years. It is always a place where you are treated quite nicely, and did I mention that the food is excellent.

My husband and I chose to have our wedding reception here because many people we knew said it was a nice place. The music was super loud, the food was horrible and the staff could care less if we were happy or not. They have a small dance floor so when my husband and I went for a first dance... More

The atmosphere was just perfect.....Soft playing Christmas music and the fireplace. The salmon and prime rib was very good. The waiter was very pleasant and we enjoyed his company.

Walk-in right at 5 p.m. and the staff look at my wife and I like we were aliens. Just a very ugly situation. The draft beer tap read Newcastle but it was a different beer and the waiter blamed it on the distributor! They should of change the label on the tap! They should blame themselves!!! We ordered 2 Mai... More
