this is a family restaurant that caters to a huge buffet, and is worth every penny: be sure you have a big appetite: there is a wide variety of salad toppings with a tremendous amount of choices: there is also a lot of hot food choices: but, the best part is the wide ice cream dessert buffet

We have eaten at Michael's many times, but because we live so far north of it, haven't been there for a long time. The draw of Michael's is the "salad bar". The reason for putting "salad bar" in quotes is because it's NOTHING like a 'normal' salad bar. Not only does the salad bar have virtually EVERYTHING all the bars in the country have, it also offers many "dinner" items, like chili, ribs, deep-fried jalapenos, etc. It's ALL good. . . and the $10 price is a bargain (always has been). Service is attentive and fast. Only downside is that it's a bit noisy.

After family went back to Boston did not feel like cooking. Last ones in Restaurant , but the service was still good. Food taste fresh , and they have a wonderful salad bar. I recommend the barbeque Salomon , really good. Only problem had to wait for the potatoes , and the rest of my food was already out.

I stayed one night at the hotel across the street and needed dinner after driving over 8 hours. We had a friendly server and some really tasty drinks, but the food is cheap quality diner food. The burger sliders were frozen flavorless patties, the fries were so salty we could not eat them and the salad was soggy.

We were traveling south and stopped for the night at a hotel right close by to Michael's, so we could walk over. I am giving it an average review but that does not mean we did not enjoy the spot and would certainly say to give it a try if in the area. We sat at the bar which is a decent size with an adequate selection of beers on tap. Bartender was very friendly and helpful with our food choices. Good conversation with the other patrons who were also heading south. They do offer a pretty good size salad bar which includes hot food as well. My wife got the salad bar and was happy with it. I got the turkey dinner which was good and very plentiful.
Overall happy with our experience and if traveling in this area again would not hesitate to stop here again.
