Heard a great deal about Michael's as it has been here for a long time. The owner does a lot of good things for the community around Thanksgiving, yet this was my first time here, and had a taste for a fish fry.. I saw an ad in the local paper that was an AYCE (all you can eat) beer... More

First time here, warm atmosphere, delicious food, efficient and friendly service. The highlight was the third Friday musician, Latin jazz guitarist.

We enjoyed several very good breakfasts @ Michaels. The food was average to above average depending upon your choice. The space is clean and comfortable. The servers are efficient and friendly. The clientele was older with many seniors during our visits. There appear to be many regulars. Pricing is attractive especially if you have a coupon from one of the... More

I agree with the previous review- that the WORD needs to get out that this is an entirely new restaurant!!! I purchased the Saganaki (flaming cheese) OMPA! and the gyros. Excellent!!!! My friend order Steak Oscar that was out-of-this-world and made fresh to order! We watched plate after plate of prime rib stream past us, and now we are going... More

The word needs to get out! This is NOT the old Michaels. In my opinion it's the best Greek food around. Also the Chef won taste of River (Rocky River)!!!!

Great for good service, good food, ambiance, great price. Very welcoming, good service. Great food. Full bar. Try during the week when it's quiet. Nice for couples and those who want to enjoy their meal in peace. My favorite is the pulled pork on potato pancakes. They have clam bake right now. Friday evenings find appetizers and beer half price.... More

I had a wonderful dinner there, celebrating my wife's birthday. The decor is not really what we expected, more like cafeteria-style look with no tablecloths as I recall and simple chairs, but the food was something else! It made up for any reservations we may have had as we approached the restaurant. As did the down-to-earth friendly owner who is... More
