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

Was looking forward to our visit and it was just ok. Mixed appetizer plate was very heavy on the olives and light on everything else. Shish kafta were good, but no more than good. Good Turkish coffee, but as we had our coffee, the staff was busy clearing our table, wow ! Won't bother making the trip back. Palm palace... More

The service was good and the prices are reasonable. The Grape Leaves, Stuffed Squash and kibbeh Neyeh were excellent I would definitely be back for more. The crust on the spinach and feta pie was to tough. In the past i have had the Lamb Shank and it has never disappointed me.

This is by far the best and freshest Leb food on the eastside ! You cannot find or make La Ha Mishwe (Lamb Kabob) better than at Steve's, trust me, I've tried. They have some really good non-middle eastern salads too ! Try the "Steve's" salad not to be confused with the "Backroom Chicken Salad".

Steve's Backroom has all the Lebanese Favorites. Lunch offers a wide variety of inexpensive specials and all our tasty. Metro Detroit has many many Middle Eastern restaurants - but this one is special and a cut above the others. My favorite soup here is the Rashta which has spinach, chick peas, lentils, onions, with garlic and spices. This is the... More
