Stopped at Steves to grab a quick lunch. Ordered a small Chicken Fattoush Salad. The salad was very small and came with a pita bread (no garlic sauce). All though it was good it was way way over priced for the portion size they provided. Tons of other places in the area serving the same type of food with much... More

For many years I haven't even considered a Mediterranean or Middle Eastern restaurant. But my in laws have raved about this place so I agreed to go. It's delicious! We've been there so often now that servers know my mother-in-law's beer choice and how we always order an appetizer of Lebaneh. (Hope I spelled it right). It's served with freshly... More

After reading many mixed reviews on this place I decided to try it with my best friend despite our better judgement. From the moment we walked in the door we knew this was going to be a disaster. There were 4 people behind the counter when we walked in. No one greeted or even looked up at us for about... More

Quaint atmosphere with lots of art on walls. The middle eastern cuisine is delicious and have never been disappointed. Staff is attentive and friendly.

I love Steve's Backroom! The soups are wonderful, the eggplant and tomato appetizer is wonderful, and the rice and veggie stew is wonderful. I've purchased their pita bread and it's great. The only problem with the restaurant is that the staff is extremely slow. Whenever we have gone there, there are few patrons, yet the one waitress especially will chat... More

Tiny restaurant with excellent Mediterranean cuisine. It's like the very best of home cooking, and they treat you like family. They make and sell their hummous to a number of grocery stores in the Metro Detroit area. It's that good. Be sure to leave room for the baklava, or take some home. It's amazing. They also have a neatly decorated... More
