My wife and I have dined here many times for dates. We brought our four kids (ages 8-17) this last time and we had yet another great experience. Great service and very good food. All were pleased. The outdoor dining is wonderful, comfortable, and the view is amazing.

I have been staying in the Lake of the Ozarks for the past two months, and Michaels Steak Chalet is by far the best resturant in the Osage beach area, sorry Baxters and JB Hooks, they have you beat hands down!!! If your staying in the osage beach area this is a must resturant to go too!!! .

I'm not sure having a reservation helped us much. Those in line in front us didn't have a reservation and took what looked like the last outdoor table with a lake view. We were offered a table on the third level and declined because we wanted a view of the lake. We said no we didn't want to eat inside so the wait staff finally placed a table and chairs in a rather secluded area of the 2nd level. It was perfect. We were treating our college age granddaughter to a special dinner before she went back to classes. We only go to Michael's for special occasions due to the cost.

Michael's is always a great experience - this past visit, the service wasn't as good as it usually is, but they were pretty busy. Food was great - views amazing. One of our favorite restaurants at the lake - one of our 'special occasion' places

The ambiance and overall feeling of coziness while overseeing the beautiful Lake was an amazing experience. The house Pinot noir wine was wonderful too. The four of us had steaks that were very good and cooked to our liking. Our waitress was very attentive and did a great job. We will be back!

I have been going to Michael's with my family for almost 20 years and have never once had a bad meal or experience there. The atomosphere is comfortable and the view (especially outside) is lovely, relaxing, and always a nice experience. Their menu is not lengthy, but what it lacks in content it more than makes up for in quality and presentation. The staff is always kind and cheerful, as well as dutiful, and they don't harang you every few minutes like some restaurants do. The bar is also pretty well stocked. ;) Some people have mentioned that it is a bit out of the way - but I would say that's one of their best features. While they are certainly crowded on the weekends, the location is really worth the few minute drive (honestly, it's not really any farther than anything else depending on where you live or stay!). Why? The food first, the view second, the staff third (not a put down on them, but let's be honest - lovely as people can be you don't go out to a restaurant just for the staff. :P).

Good prime rib and steaks and excellent grilled tuna. We were offered "the best window table in the dining room". It was, but was the only window with a broken shade. By the middle of the meal the sun made it uncomfortable. A window washer would greatly improve the ambiance and view.

Took our neighbors out to Michael's as a "thank you." It is on the more expensive side, but the entrees are delicious. The service is very good, with friendly smiles on everyone. We didn't go to the bar this time, but we had seen and heard the gentleman who was performing that night during other visits and he really caters to the crowd! I really enjoy going there, but it would be great to see a little TLC given to the building itself. In particular, the stairs/bathroom area can have a musty, stale air smell, probably due to air circulation issues.

We had a very nice table overlooking the lake on the lower patio. Our meal was delicious and served piping hot. The entire staff was professional, friendly and responsive to our requests. Will certainly return next time we are at the lake!!

Since we were the only table for the 1st hour - the service was super slow. Also, after our waitress got another table (her 2nd table - the place was empty - granted it was Monday) we were almost ignored. Food was ok - the service was the bad part. The waitress just seemed like she hates what she is doing..... time for a new job honey!

Very disappointing experience. Large group made main restaurant too noisy, we moved to the downstairs. Both ordered the halibut, way overcooked and dry, to dry to finish. Neither finished our meal. Requested Chardonnay with dinner, initially they didn't have the Chardonnay that was on the menu, then half a glass into it we realized they brought us a riesling We mention this to the waitress Who seemed unconcerned about the miss ordering wine and the fact that fish was so dry. Very unlikely to ever Visit this restaurant again.

Overall, we had a very nice experience. The food was delicious. We had the escargot as l the appetizer and it was cooked perfectly, with the nice and buttery puff pastry, however, our prime rib had a large and inedible line of sinew. Service was excellent, drinks were very tasty, and the view was spectacular.

We are locals, lived on the west side for years. Knew of Michaels for a long time. Our anniversary was the 22nd and we thought we would go to Michaels. You opened at 5, our reservation was at 6. It was clear you were not ready. Upper dining room floor was still being mopped, so we agreed to eat downstairs, not knowing it's the bar area. Asked if wanted to eat at the bar, no we didn't want that, it's our anniversary. We were looking for a romantic night. We sat at a table. So then we sat through trash being taken out, bar getting ready, and worse of all was the guy setting up to play music. As he loadly set up, he was talking on the phone while setting up. Took him forever, and he got louder and louder on the phone, in and out he came. So while the food and waitress were very nice our romantic evening was a bust at Michaels. So while you advertise you are open at 5, you all might be ready at 5. After all, at your prices, you might be ready. I think we'll stick with JD Hooks, Bentleys or the Copper Pot next year
And for our special occasions.

The food was so delicious, and we were so full by the time we left we didn't even finish our wine or the desert. I have never had such a great meal that I was that full and that happy. I would recommend this place, and I already have, to everyone.
Great outdoor view with good food
The menu offered has a wide variety of upscale food selections. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The only mistake I made this time was having my wife get her Prime Rib prepared "French Style". This is an option on the menu. I would recommend this option only for those that want their prime rib well done. The menu says for medium and above, and my wife likes hers medium, and it was way overcooked. Morale of the story.....never order for your wife......

View is amazing! If you are looking for an old ,well established , true , steak house, this is your place. Service was great, food was on time and better than expected. Pre dinner drinks started the night off right, the wine suggested by the staff ,was spot on. We had the 8 ounce filet and strip steak, cooked to our specifications . The twice backed potatoes would have been worth the trip , just by themselves . The restaurant was only about 3/4 full in the dinning area and had a really nice (live band) down stairs. Was a great meal and we will be going back.
