A large group of us descended on Michaels but we did give advance notice. As it was late we were starving and our smaller table in the group didn't want to deal with ordering from the menu but we waited forever for our waitress. When she did appear it was less than desirable attitude and service. We all wanted to... More

Although the Yelp reviews say it's good, it really isn't. The menu is too extensive for it to be good.

They have menu's but the buffet is usually the way to go for me. I'm a big eater and they have a huge selection. It can be slow at times so the buffet is more my speed. I rate it better than average, but it is still buffet food. Very good salads and a nice selection of breads. Once in... More

Nice selection of food at reasonable prices. The salad bar was great with fresh lettuce, toppings, and assorted other items. We also had the breakfast buffet which our party enjoyed.

Michael's is a very nice and clean restaurant. It was my first time there and what a great place. I sat at the bar and had one of the coldest draft beer I've had in a long time. I was going to order from the menu when the bartender recommend I look at the all you can eat dinner buffet... More

We like it here and have visited five or six times. We usually order from the senior/early bird menu. The food is nicely prepared and very tasty. I like the fried flounder and chopped steak. We've had sandwiches and burgers a couple of times. Also very good. The portion sizes are so large we always bring home about half of... More

It's a bad sign when iceberg-based salad bar is the highlight. Food was tasteless. Go someplace else.

This restaurant has nice ambiance, and friendly staff. The salad bar was rather extensive, offering a wide variety of foods. We were in the mood for pizza, wich is done in a coal fired oven. Unfortunately, we agreed that it was mediocre at best.
