I have been going to Michaels for more than 15 years. Unfortunately, the food quality had been slipping recently. The new owners are implementing consistent improvements across the board. The staple of the prime rib is back to rivaling any Chicago steakhouse. The cocktail and...More

I ordered the 24 ounce prime rib and it was good. Came with horseradish but I would have preferred broth. Smallest salad I have ever been served. It was just a few bites but it was delicious. French Onion soup was unimpressive. The cheese was...More

Michaels House of Prime has been a family owned and operated restaurant for over 90 years. While specializing in bringing our diners delicious slow roasted prime rib and mouth watering steaks and seafood, Michael's also delivers on a wonderful Friday Fish Fry and a great variety of appetizers. The changing menu reflects the change in seasons and the availability of produce from area farmers and providers.

The bar chefs are constantly creating new drinks to entice you from leaving an old favorite for something new. They also make a wide variety of good old Wisconsin ice cream drinks.

Tuesdays is Smokehouse night that along with our full menu the chefs use the backyard smoker to create some wonderful BBQ.
