French-American Steakhouse

Michael John's Restaurant




Our Story

Established in 2006, Michael John’s or MJ’s as it is known by its local following, is an informal French-American steakhouse that serves beer, wine, cocktails and hearty food. One of Manatee’s best restaurants, Michael John prepares house aged Iowa, USDA Prime cuts of beef and incredibly fresh local seafood. At Michael John’s it’s about food— and company—and the enjoyment of both. Bon Appétit

Michael John’s is a place where the genuine care and comfort of our guests is our highest mission. We pledge to provide the finest personal service for our guests who will always enjoy a warm, relaxed, yet refined ambience.
