Michaels offers lovely ambience, and a broad German menu (including excellent beers and wines). The food was delicious, and was served by a charming and welcoming host and hostess.

I don't often get real German food in this country, much less a favorite wine without buying a whole bottle! The service was excellent, the people friendly and efficient, and the food authentic. A lovely experience!

Stopped there on my way to a business meeting with a colleague. I found it when I was searching for a place to eat while in St. Cloud. The German/Austrian food caught my eye. Heinrich, the owner, was attentive, friendly and welcoming. He made us feel as if we were eating in his home. Our entrees were excellent. We enjoyed... More

My wife and I had an excellent experience at Michaels'. Many people would rate this as a 4 and that is justifiable. Here's why I awarded 5 stars: personal service from Heinrich the owner/operator, 80s decor kept up in immaculate condition, absolutely AMAZING German food, a unique dining experience that you will not find anywhere else, Heinrich is very friendly...

We went to this restaurant when we were staying at the Americas best value inn, a hotel next door. Loved the place and the decoration was amazing. The owner himself was a really funny man.

The food and owner...wonderful! The outside needs a lot of work! I wouldn't have went in if I hadn't been staying at the motel near it. The building looks terrible on the outside and I thought it was shut down. It was worth the visit. Appearances don't mean everything but I really think they might want to consider it!

If you manage to find yourself a Michael's be sure to stay and order a meal. The times I've eaten there the sign outside is seldom lit and from the outside it looks like it may be closed. When you enter you are greeted by the circa 1983 renovation of what was a hotel restaurant built in the late 1960s.... More

We went to Michael's tonight for dinner with another couple and experienced excellent service & attention from Heinrich, the owner. He was friendly & funny! Everyone in our party was thrilled with their food (jaeger schnitzel and wiener wurstel). Choose german chocolate or cheesecake for dessert! If you want to try something different than chain restaurant food-I recommend Michael's restaurant.

This place has great authentic Austrian Food & Wine/ Beer! We were very pleased with friendly service, as well. Admittedly, we are very hard people to please, and my chef-hubby was blown away by the sauerkraut especially!! Great Gruner too! The exterior and decor, not inviting, but don't let that fool you!! Great restaurant!

Thank TDJ10
