The food is a bit pricey, but worth it. You never know who you will see or run in to there. Carmen Harlen feom Channel 4 news was at the next table over. The views of the river at pretty good. Come for lunch if you don't want to pay a lot and experience the atmosphere and food.

After a long day of touring Detroit our conference group stopped in for our reception dinner. The service was phenomenal and entertaining. Food was delicious and dessert was oh so yummy. After dinner take in a nice walk along the river.

It had been 15 years since I had been to The Rattlesnake and I was really looking forward to dinner here with my husband. We were greeted and seated right away at a table by the window. The waiter was friendly and tried to be helpful. My husband enjoyed the crackers they brought him, but I thought the rosemary roll... More

The food is delicious and very well prepared. The attention to fresh and locally sourced cuisine is refreshing. The service is world class good. I highly recommend your party tries several deserts to share as they are unique and amazing. Don't miss the white chocolate ravioli desert!

Service was attentive and friendly and the food was very good, but not quite as good as one would expect for the price. This is one of those establishments where you pay as much for the name as the dinner, but everything was fresh, hot and very well presented. The parking lot, however, is in deplorable condition.

My wife and I tend to dine out near our home in Birmingham, and let's face it, that can get a bit monotonous. So, we decided to head downtown to the Rattlesnake. It had been many years since I was last there and I was surprised to see all the new buildings in this section of town along the river.... More

This restaurant is a bit expensive but the food is interesting and delicious. We sat on the patio because it was a pleasant evening.

My niece had her wedding out front just behind the river walk. Very picturesque spot for a wedding. The reception was inside in what is like the grand lobby for whatever offices are upstairs. The ceiling is worth looking up in the daytime. Food was quite tasty which isn't always true when serving a banquet size group.

Although somewhat off-the-beaten path, the Rattlesnake Club's outdoor seating offers views of the river and seclusion from the cacophony of the nearby city. The night we were there was perfect, with a cool breeze and plenty of shade. The service and food did not quite live up to the standard of the setting, however. I had a kale and goat... More
