I have been going here for 20+ years. I have seen the quality slip over the years. There are still some good choices and a few things to avoid... The fish fry is good, but they serve it with tartar sauce that is not HOMEMADE.. Really... how hard is it too mix 2 ingrediants together? The meatballs are NOT HOMEMADE..... More

Food was delicious, portions were enormous, and service was outstanding. Be warned the Calzones are HUGE, my wife and I could have easily have shared one. Fettuccine Alfredo was a daily special and it was also excellent.

If you are looking for a good home cooked Italian meal that is reasonably priced, come here! After being at the Falls for several days, we were craving real food that didn't cost a real fortune. We wish we would've discovered it sooner-would've been great for takeout to our VRBO. Be advised, portions are huge, so if you don't have... More

Michael's Restaurant is a neighborhood gem which is consistently good. Understand - if you want a 5-Star dining experience, this is not the place. If you want consistently good food at a fair price with massive portions served at lightning speed - you found the place. Always check out the specials board - there are generally a surprise or 3...

The food is great. Large portions at a reasonable price. The julienne salad is outstanding. The chicken fingers and italian are also great. The service is fast and friendly.

I don't take any pleasure on writing low reviews. I typically like to give the business (especially small businesses) an opportunity to make corrections necessary before going online. I really wanted to like this place. My problem was with the food. Very Americanized Italian food. Overcooked. We ordered a pizza and unfortunately it was wrong. I still tried a bite... More

Had a 1/2 portion of spaghetti and 2 meatballs, had it parmigianed. Enough for 2 meals. Came with lettuce and tomato salad and bread. Didn't need to spend money on parmegiana, wasn't worth it. All in all very good. Meatballs extra also. About $18. Got 2 meals though.

This restaurant has been here for many years and the food has always been goo, but it now seems better. The ambiance is not the best, but the food and staff make for a wonderful dining experience.

The best thing about Michaels is how they generated an interest in greens and beans. They are still the best because they soak and cook the beans the way bean soup is supposed to be made. Their imitaters start with canned chicken broth then add canned beans throw in some greens and heat. The outcome is fake greens and beans.... More
