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.

Food was okay, nothing to get excited about. Food could have been hotter, but I understand the issue with keeping it hot. There was a good selection of food. The place was clean, servers were what you should expect. My main problem was with the price. I felt 15.00 for breakfast/ brunch was a little steep. I can understand a... More

I found the restaurant to be very clean and I found the staff to be fairly accommodating... all and all. However, they seem to have some odd self-fulfilling prophecy in that they don't serve the full Buffet on Saturdays because the crowds are too small versus Sunday!!?! I'm suspicious that if they served the full buffet on Saturday that they'd... More

While we were in Delaware we were looking to get a quick breakfast when we stumbled upon Micheal’s Restaurant on Churchman Road. The sign on the outside advertised a”Sunday Buffet”. Our original thought was; “If they have a buffet, they must have something that we can eat”. We drove around the parking lot very happy to see that the parking... More

This was surprisingly good. It had a great buffet and an ice cream buffet. Looked very appetizing. We chose to order from the menu and it was fantastic. Chicken and waffles were very good. I had fried flounder which was excellent.. Very good.

Really good crab cakes but I thought a little pricy, especially since it didn't include the salad/ dessert bar, which was an extra $6.99. Good deals on the senior menu if you qualify.
