“Good Meat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

If you go there you must order the filet mignon and the spinach salad. The rice that they advertise sometimes is a little bit over cooked.

“Fantastic Steak!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

Love Michael's Restaurant. It is a great place to visit in town for a great steak and fabulous service! You must try the garlic toast, it is wonderful. There are lots of nooks and crannies to sit in this restaurant so it can feel a bit more private dining than many large restaurants.

“the best filet-mignon ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

I am a chilean MD. The first time in Michaelªs was in 1989 while i made a trainnig at Mayo Clinic and I was invited by my chief Dr. Horst Zincke for lunch. The Filet Mignon was superb. I have been there in four times after 1989, the last was in 2010 and every time I go I order my Filet that is the best I ever tasted. Congratulations.

Feels like a European restaurant, Food is great as well as the service. Had nice steak. Went for the banana cream pie which was delicious.
