Had an ice cream craving so stopped at Michaels! Image my sticker shock to get charged $9!! But the 25 cent "convenience fee" is what put me over the edge! 5 for strawberry shake with Oreos; 1 for value!!!! Culver's had much more affordable custard!!

Awesome! The most wonderful Custard in the world! Every visit requires a stop by Michael's. And it is so worth it!

If I only had one word to describe my turtle sundae it would be "magnificent". Michael's get's it absolutely right, there's almost nothing I would change about their sundae. It could be a bit cheaper and/or the container needs to be a bit bigger container....More

Stopped by to pick up a cherry malt for my husband and after looking at the menu I ordered a turtle sundae for myself. BAD! Not the sundae but all the calories that I ate. Some of the best places for frozen custard.

I used the restroom prior to ordering. There were no paper towels. The very young people in the service area are so unlikely to properly wash their hands without the proper supplies. I left without ordering. That is a basic sanitation requirement in an ice...More

This is just good custard. The rest of the menu may be skipped. Stay with the custard. Just be ready to spend more for a cone or single dish than anywhere else in Madison. Once in a while, it is just worth it.

The frozen custard is very creamy and creamy means fatty. Personally, I can only go occasionally due to calories and cost. Less costly alternatives are Dairy Queen and McDonald's, possibly Culver's. Several reviewers have mentioned the cost (check this and other Michael's locations on TripAdvisor...More
