The seafood chowder was the best thing I ever ate! The oysters in the shell were wonderful! The entire meal was the best. We live two hours away and we are going to make the trip just for the food at Michaels! Best experience.

We have eaten here numerous times and glad we happened to pick Monday; prime rib night! Between that and the seafood chowder dinner was delicious. Tip: go early and check their website for daily specials.

We have eat at Michaels several times. It’s always been good but really like what I got this time. It’s fairly easy to eat healthy here. The fresh catch (red drum) was cooked to perfection! ...and I loved the beet salad with champagne dressing.

During the “off season”, Michael’s Seafood does “all you can eat crab legs” on Tuesdays and it’s certainly a hit! We attended with family and were lucky to have a great server, David, who kept the legs coming without us having to ask. They don’t...More
