Michaels Cafe - Timonium, MD
Review of “Michaels Cafe”
I took my Mother here for her Birthday Thursday evening. I have not been here since their huge renovation some time ago. We entered through the back of the building which seemed like the main entrance.
The atmosphere was cozy, perfect lighting with dark wood furniture and lots of earth tones. The main dining room was an awesome space, very high vaulted ceilings and lots of great energy. We were greeted and seated right away. Our server was Emily and she was friendly, professional and fantastic.
We started with some cocktails, my dirty martini was on point and a nice portion. We ordered the fried green tomatoes with jumbo lump and Salt Pond oysters. The app was enjoyable, and I highly recommend the Salt Pond oysters, they are incredible. My Wife ordered the 5oz. crab cake and Mom and I both ordered the Filet with crab imperial. The filets were prepared medium rare as ordered and the imperial was done simply perfect. Our sides were hot and the plates were presented nicely. Our dessert was yummy, we had the hot fudge brownie with vanilla ice cream. There is a decent wine selection and craft beer menu as well.
I am giving Michael’s a 5 star review because they delivered the total package, excellent service, excellent atmosphere with fresh and delicious food. Don’t expect Michelin level, white glove style service here, it’s more business casual, go and relax kind of spot. For the price point offered and convenient location just off of I83 you can’t beat it. There is also an outside patio with a cool bar. We will go back and have drinks and food on a sunny day!
