I recently took my wife to the Rattlesnake Club for her birthday. We had heard about how nice the restaurant was but had never been. I made reservation a week in advance to ensure a table for two. We were seated at an elegant table with a full view of the Detroit River. Our server was very helpful in explaining... More

We booked a reservation 30 minutes prior on a thursday night, showed up and were seated right away. The tab was a little pricey for what we had, scallops and steak, but it was properly cooked and my steak was tender and full of flavor. Finished off the night with a glass of scotch, excellent wine selection and the wait... More

Street parking and parking lot available for this wonderful find along the Riverfront. Happy hour, was extremely happy, in the bar area. Half price appetizers and the special drink of the day, brought our day to an end. Shareable appetizers and unique foodie treats of eats.

The rattlesnake club is an upscale restaurant on the river shore. The indoor and outdoor seating are both excellent. We enjoyed the food and drinks for a private party in one of their rooms. Afterwards it's a nice stroll down the river or a drink on the river-view porch.

The good news is that it's a decent restaurant you can easily get into during the week. They have quiet outside seating that is nice. The food is pretty good, not mind blowing. It seems that the fish off the grill part of the menu is better than the red snapper I got that was OK. The BBQ shrimp appetizer... More

I have been going to the Rattlesnake sporadically for almost 20 years. It's always a little bit different every time. Sometimes great, and sometimes just good. Either way, it is a standard that has weathered some tough times. This last visit was good, but the reason I'm writing this at all is to praise the filet mignon. I ordered it... More
