Even confirmed carnivores have to take a break from oceanic fare once in awhile, and Michael’s is the place to do it. While Chef Michael Wilson’s kitchen knows its way around a mahi mahi filet, it’s the steaks people come and come back for. Ranked in the top-three restaurants in Florida by Zagat’s, the number at the bottom of your check may actually come close to the number of calories consumed, but it’s worth it. Our steak has always arrived at exactly the temperature ordered, wonderfully flavorful and fork-tender. Like many of Key West’s fine-dining establishments, the front facade isn’t much to look at, but don’t let that fool you; you won’t find a better steak anywhere in the Keys and probably not in your home town, either. There’s also a small outdoor garden bar that serves fondue along with the drinks.
