Micheal's Restaurant in Pickens
Michael’s Restaurant, 301 E. Main St. in Pickens, serves delicious sandwiches and salads, home-cooked meat and three meals and even a quiche of the day.


Mich​ael’s is a family-owned restaurant at 301 E. Main St. in Pick​ens, just across the street from Pickens County Courthouse, that serves up delicious home-cooked meals that really hit the spot, especially after a morning of exploring the beauty of the South Caroli​na Upstate.

The menu varies a bit from day-to-day, but diners are guaranteed a wide selection of sandwiches and salad choices, a quiche of the day, and the ever-popular meat and three. On the day my travel companion/photographer and I visited, the lunch menu featured chicken and broccoli casserole, shredded BBQ chicken, Country Fried Steak and crab cakes. Side items included masked potatoes and gravy, collards, baked sweet potatoes, pineapple and friend squash. We had chicken and broccoli casserole and the crab cakes with broccoli and cheese casserole, potato salad and cole slaw. I topped my meal with a slice of apple pie (but passed on the ice cream). Everything was tasty and filling, TLC liberally sprinkled on everything. The restaurant was immaculate and tastefully decorated.

At the time of our visit, owner Amy Barrett was preparing for the grand opening of the Burning Brick Tavern on the upper level of Michael’s Restaurant. Amy Barrett’s husband Mark Barrett, owns American Waffle, 2829 Gentry Memorial Highway in Pickens.

If you’re going:

Michael’s Restaurant, 301 E. Main St., is open from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
