This really is a more high end seafood place rather than a typical seafood joint. Very artistic plates and delicious food. Just not very big servings and a bit pricey. Carolina Beach just feels a little more casual. Not a place to go if you are going to fill up on local seafood. Service is good and like I said... More

We found Michaels's in a strip mall right over the bridge to Carolina Beach after a long drive, when we were very tired. No trouble getting seated right away in our off-peak, mid-week visit. The waitress was friendly and efficient, and our food came without delay. My husband had the seafood chowder (clams, crab and fish in a cream base)... More

Love going to Michael's for dinner. Every trip to Carolina Beach requires a meal at Michael's. Their soups and chowders are excellent. Be sure to try one. Service was excellent - servers know the menu and can advise you on any item.

This is a late review but we made it back last Aug 2016. Food is always good. My wife loves the clam chowder. Parking is tight and always a little wait but its worth it to us.

Great atomsphere, good service and excellent food. Mid-range pricing with fresh seafood. Come early at high season as it fills up fast for dinner.

A favorite rest. In Carolina Beach. Good food AND really special prices on appetizers on Thursday. Evenings during the off season months...how 'boutique a dozen steamed oysters for a $5? Good food, modestly priced, good service...try it ya'all will like it.

Nice and Clean. Sat at high top in bar area. Only one bartender. She was great but stretched too thin with tables and bar. Had Buffalo Shrimp, Crab Cakes, House Salads and Admiral Feast. All good except Shrimp was overlooked. Not bad for off season.

We have been going to Carolina Beach for a few years now but never actually went to a seafood restaurant there! When we asked around, we were told to try Michaels. Quick, friendly and excellent service coupled with mouthwatering food at a decent price is what we found when we checked it out. We forgot to order chowder to go... More

The fresh snapper was excellent and the sweet potato soup was incredible. I don't know how I ever missed this place!
