Michael's provides the best dry-smoked barbecue of all types that I've ever experienced. Although it appears to be a humble, no frills place, their food is absolutley outstanding--no matter what you order! Why only one barbecue sauce at your table? Because it simply complements every single thing they serve. What a sweet find in little ol' Etowa Tennessee.

We have dined at this restaurant many times and I've yet to have any place in the area beat the quality of food, service, and pricing. This restaurant offers specials for around $7.00 that are better than you would cook at home. Add a drink and dessert and you've dined for under $12. With the exception of the pulled pork,... More

This is our go-to spot if we're passing thru Etowah. Highly recommend starting off with an order of their french fried mushrooms. They are delicious. Then after doing that I would recommend splitting something...have tried several items on the menu...but I've got to say that their grilled burgers are some of the best around...they remind you of what I call...

I was one in a group of 50 and the wait staff did an outstanding job in taking care of us. Not one did anyone in our group have to ask for a refill on their beverage. They were always one step ahead of us. All questions were answered and a Senior's Menu was offered as well as the regular... More

Have been there several times, usually on Thursday when they have their senior discount dinners. Food is delicious and reasonably-priced. Definitely a go to place.

We ate here after a train ride at the Tennessee Valley Railroad. Everyone in our party enjoyed the meal they ordered - shrimp stir fry, club sandwich, French onion soup w/baked potato. I had fried catfish w/coleslaw and baked potato. I thought the catfish and coleslaw were really good. I had to send the potato back because it wasn't hot... More

Came here after riding the TN Valley train along the Hiwassee River on a Sunday afternoon. There were 5 couples in our group. We called as we left the L&N Depot and our table was waiting on us when we arrived. The menu had about anything you would want from soups to steak, fish, chicken, sandwiches to comfort food dishes.... More

Stopped in we were seated quickly. The Smoked Brisket was great the green bean also. My wife and I split the order. They bring you a lost of bread and it will melt in your mouth.

We were greeted as soon as we entered. The restaurant is bright and clean. Our server, Kaya, was delightful. The menu has a lot of variety. The portions are very generous. Our dinner was cooked to perfection. The sides were terrific. I highly recommend this restaurant.
