A Place For Every Occasion – I love Michael Deans because it is, in general, a crowd pleaser. I have taken everyone from business clients and colleagues to my mother-in-law to this establishment, and am never disappointed in the food or service, regardless of the occasion.

Did anyone else get food poisoning from eating the oysters ? – After eating at Michael Deans had to check into ER for "severe gastric disturbance." Anyone else have this happen?

Great food & atmosphere – My family has been going to Michael Deans for years. We go for birthday's, buy gift cards for Christmas, it's always been a consistant and nice place to go for a good dinner.

They have wonderful seafood and salad. I usually get a salad (they are huge) and nice glass of wine. If I go for an entre', I like the fish with garlic mashed potatoes as a side.

The Key Lime Pie is awesome, as are their chocolate desserts but it was the bread pudding that surprised me the most. That name "bread pudding" never sounded very appealing to me, but when my friend ordered it, I ended up eating half! It was so good!

I noticed another review where they didn't like the meal and were given a chance to try it again. Really, if you have any issues, let the management know as they are very concerned for their customers and want people to enjoy their meals.

I highly recommend Michael Deans. I can't wait to try the brunch some weekend!

Disappointed with service – My husband I have been a frequent customer for the past 5 years. Always happy with the service and food. This past year the service has been getting worse with each visit no matter which night of the week. The wait staff seems to be inexperienced and often forget to place our orders. They are not as attentive and pay attention to details as they used to be. We have waited 20 minutes before our drink order comes and 30 minutes before the appetizer arrives. The food is still good, but more often than not the poor service has ruined the dining out experience

Response to UNC1995 – Comparing Michael Deans to Ruby Tuesday and Chilis Restaurant is like comparing a mojito that is made using fresh mint leaves, puerto rican rum, ripe limes, sweet liquer (making sure not too tart) VS taking cheap rum, tossing a lime wedge or slice, and adding a mojito mix. I like Ruby Tuesday and chilis, but the atmosphere is different at Michael Deans---you get what you pay for. I used to work at Darryl's 1914 in Fay, Nc and had the pleasure of Dean Ogan as General Manager. He stressed the importance of "plate presentations", ensuring that guest were "repeat-guest", and insisted the staff be knowledgable of the menu, the micro-brews, imports, and wine selections--not just the servers and bar staff, but the host/hostess as well.

If you had alerted any dissatification to him or management, you would have been taken care of!

You MUST dine at Michael Deans! – I highly recommend this restaurant. Tthe spinach and artichoke dip with tomato basil crisp bread is the best. We coupled our dinner with La Terre Merlot. Unpretentious, beautiful atmosphere and the food is absolutely second to none. Anthony is a fantastic waiter! The service was perfect. Thanks so much for an awesome experience. We will definitely return over and over again!

Great place for a drink and appetizers – I recently went to Michael Dean?s with some co-workers after work the other day and had a great time. They had buy one get one free appetizers so we ordered the calamari and crab cakes (which with both really good) and we enjoyed a really nice bottle of wine. If you are looking for some where to grab a drink, get great appetizers all for a good price ? I would recommend this place.

Michael Dean's karaoke night – A group of my girlfriends and I were trying to find an entertaining place to go out on a Saturday night in North Raleigh. We decided to try Michael Dean?s karaoke night. We had such a good time. The crowd was great and the bartenders were fast and friendly. I would recommend Michael Dean?s karaoke night to anyone who is looking for a great Saturday night out!
