Michael’s is in the middle of the 6200 block Eastern Ave., near the Highlandtown post office; if you get to the Home Depot you have truly gone too far. Turn around, and go enjoy the best steaks and seafood for the price in town.

Filet Mignon and Lobster Tail

We happened by for lunch on a Thursday, and one of the specials was a filet mignon and two veg for the absurdly low price of $14.95. So of course we tried that, medium rare.

The steak was cooked perfectly, nice and charred on the outside and pink and warm on the inside. It was the very definition of medium rare, and I was grateful for that.

Depending on the restaurant, “medium rare” can go from bloody cold rare to nearly well-done, and it’s nice, and unusual, to find a perfectly cooked steak.

The filet was about six or seven ounces, tender and juicy, served on a toast point to soak up all that lovely juice, and altogether enjoyable. It came with “Pittsburgh Seasoning,” which is a dry rub composed of, as far as I could tell, lots of pepper, a little heat from cayenne perhaps, and a little herb, maybe some thyme. Anyhow, it was good, and had a whole lot more oomph than the Steelers did against the Ravens. (Just had to get one last dig in.)
Mary Helen tried the oyster stew ($5.95 for a big bowl), which was the real deal–just oysters, milk, butter and seasonings, made to order. If you miss Burke’s oyster stew, head over to Michael’s.

The shrimp salad platter featured large shrimp in a mayonnaise generously seasoned with Old Bay, served on a bed of lettuce with sliced cucumber and tomato, with a kalamata olive perched on top, rather like a savory sundae. It was a very nice dish for $14.95.

Speaking of Burke’s, the late and very lamented restaurant at the corner of Light and Lombard streets, if you loved Burke’s you will feel quite at home at Michael’s. The restaurant is cozy, with an abundance of wood paneling, well-worn captain’s chairs at the linen-topped tables, and tall booths with leatherette banquettes to the side. Michael’s is a place for a quiet chat and a very good and leisurely meal. Alas, there are no onion rings on the menu, but we bet they serve a good martini at the long and comfortable bar at the front of the house.

Stuffed Lobster Tail

Michael’s is famous for its specials–come hungry. No, come ravenous. On Monday night, there’s the 24-ounce prime rib or a pound of steamed shrimp for $14.95; there’s also a 32-ounce New York strip steak for $17.95.

On Tuesdays, there’s the 1-1/2 pound Maine lobster for $16.95. On Wednesdays, they stuff the lobster with crab Imperial and charge $20.95. On Thursdays, there’s the 40-ounce steak special, your choice of prime rib, T-bone or porterhouse, for $17.95; and on Fridays, there’s the 32-ounce crab cake for $30.95, or any fish on the menu for $20.95.

Michael’s makes a truly great crab cake—big lumps of sweet crabmeat held together with a minimum of egg and cracker crumbs, then broiled perfectly.

Our lovely meal cost us just $42.80 including tax.

Michael’s Steak and Lobster House, 6207 Eastern Ave. in Bayview, is open daily for lunch and dinner. Order crab cakes online for shipping anywhere in the U.S. at Reservations recommended; call 410-633-6485.
