The best steak I have ever had

We were visiting in Ann Arbor this weekend and my cousin make reservations at the West End Grill. Her family had gone earlier but she wasn't able to go and since they had loved it, they took us there. The restaurant was full and the noise level was high but that is what I expected. The menu is... read more

This is one of two restaurants we use for celebrations. We are sure to find dishes that are interesting and unique. The waitstaff is always attentive. This review makes me realize we need to go there again soon!

West End Grill has been around for many years here; food is consistent, decently priced and delicious. They are particularly good at preparation of fish, and the menu (on a chalkboard) reflects the emphasis on what is fresh. Their cheese beignets, the complementary bread, can be addictive. Clam chowder is excellent, sable fish is buttery and delicious. The servers really... More

We had such a fun dinner here on Friday. The atmosphere is lively and enthusiastic. This is not a stuffy restaurant. The décor could definitely use some updating. I appreciated that the tables are not super close together like some other Ann Arbor downtown restaurants. This is a place that you can actually have a conversation and not feel like... More

We dared the odds and ordered seafood - (We live on Cape Cod - what were we thinking?). Great Scallops!!! Very fine and attentive service, and hearty libations. We'll be back, next time in Ann Arbor. What a nice spot!!! n.b. easy parking in a municipal lot only 1/2 block walk away. Worth seeking out ( the restaurant ).

My husband and I ate at this restaurant for the first time last night and the food was fantastic our waiter Dave found out we are gluten free and made sure ever thing was in that order. Special made sauce and the clean silverware and a candle to celebrate our anniversary. Loved the restaurant. We will definitely be back.

Tuna Poke was very good, and the Scallops and Filet were good too, but not quite up to the price. Both were too salty, which was all the more apparent the morning after. Good service. Maybe it was the overall ambiance that just didn't lend itself to a relaxing dinner. Pretty noisy, no music. High end pretensions and prices without... More

The sea bass is as good as anywhere I've ever had, if highly recommend ordering it. Everything is good, just don't fill up on beignets!
