Lobster Pot

For years now we've celebrated the end of the workweek with a true seafood feast at Michael's On East. Yes, LOBSTER is still king on Friday nights in the restaurant.

We offer seafood lovers a "Lobster Pot" special every Friday evening beginning at 5:30 p.m. (No sharing please.) We'll even provide you the signature bib to wear as you enjoy two 1 1/4 lb. live Maine lobsters, mussels, clams, new potatoes and corn on the cob.
