Due to the number of people attending we had the front porch area wrap around along with the main bar. The separation between the rooms was an issue for being able to speak with many people due to the separation. That being said the food was wonderful and plentiful. The manager was very... read more

The street view looks like a good place. The food is lousy and lacks any redeeming qualities. Think it is a local meat market for the divorced crowd.

Ernie's has great appetizers and fabulous meals. We have been going to Ernie's on 19 Mile west of Garfield for years and it hasn't changed. Went for their Sunday chicken special and thought it was just okay. But the meals from the menu are very and we recommend Ernie's.

We would come out to Ernie's primarily for drinks with friends and, in the summer, the patio area is a great hangout. This has always been the best part of Ernie's. Service can be either great or sometimes short-staffed. When we recently visited with the family, the selection truly favors a Mediterranean style cuisine (thank goodness for pizza for kids)....

Nice waitstaff and impressive building are worth nothing if the dishes your being served with have food residue on them. The portions are unrealistic in relation to the prices. My lake perch dinner had two small pieces of potato which left this 130lb woman still hungry! Really disappointed with our mojitos, they were awful and we didnt drink them but... More

The reason I say that is when we approached the restaurant, it was dusk and the windows on the outside were dirty, always a turn-off to me. And I wasn't sure what door to go in. Once we got in, though, the fun started. We were greeted by a smiling gentleman, who seated us. Our waiter was also very kind,... More

The staff was very inexperienced for the atmosphere Ernie's is trying to portray. We were approached way to often by our waitress, other waitresses, porter/bus boys, and management. My wife and I got to the point we just wanted to be left alone. Food was decent. I had a steak and the wife had tenderloin. The couscous was very bland.... More

The Wife and I were attending her class reunion. I had never eaten here before, she had. We were to have snacks but no real meals. We arrived at about 1900. I am always hungry. We visited and I acted interested. By 2000 there still was no food. I had had a beer. I knew I needed to eat if... More

I wasn't in Clinton TWP for a long time but this place seemed to be the "nice" hangout in town. Lots of family dining around the area but people really took a liking to this place. Whether you were celebrating a special group dinner, a romantic special year, or hanging out with your mom and dad-- the place was very... More
