This place was recommended to us by a friend who knew we were in town for a few days. We were intimidated a little by the exterior and since we were there a little early, we noticed mostly elderly people entering the restaurant. However, trusting our friend, we stuck it out and were glad we did. We were seated by... More

This is the best restaurant in my opinion in the area so it gets busy. Try getting reservations especially for large parties! Large u shaped bar in center of restaurant with band/dance floor. Can be noisy depending upon when you come. Extensive menu with large portions .... House wine was fine and relatively cheap $5 glass give or take. Attire... More

They have a large menu and everything from steak to fish and vegetarian items. The wait staff seem to enjoy working there and make your dining experience fun. I have never been disappointed in anything I have ordered there. The food is fresh, hot and large portions.

Food was very good, as was service. Staff was a tad slow to refill banquet table items, but did when asked. Nice room for our group. Good meal for price.

Arrived approximately 11:30 for lunch, seated fairly quickly AFTER the wait person understood we were not with the 6 ahead of us. Food was adequate (I got the ruben), I like my food to arrive hot, my food arrived warm. Refills just didn't happen, and I had to prompt the wait person for a refill on my friends coffee. I... More

We've been here a few times and we really enjoy their food. The atmosphere is great. On the weekends they have music. It's also very close to the water so you can take a drive around the area and we've even seen deer nearby.

My favorite place in Monroe when we are visiting family or friends. Our selection of food included chicken salad, Michigan Salad, Beef and noodles and my favorite, a perch sandwich. All selections were very good. Sarah did an excellent job serving us. Being near water we enjoyed the atmosphere by sitting at one of the large windows overlooking the marina... More
