We stopped here for dinner, the food was great. The staff not so much. There was 5 people standing behind the bar talking while we were waiting on drinks and after so long of waiting we decided to get the bill and go elsewhere for drinks.

Very nice restaurant with good food and service. Hamburgers were excellent and reasonably priced for a tavern of this type in Detroit area. Good selection of beer.

Stopped in for a night cap before retiring at near by hotel. Band was playing their last set and was a nice addition. Service was great, beer selection was decent, plenty of TV's for the sports fans. It was a very nice place. We didn't eat - only had cocktails but we would stop back if we were ever in... More

We were starving and our waitress took one order from my buddy and left. The rest of us just looked... More

Restuarant needs an update. Outside entrance not appealing with numerous black spots on cement. Foyer nice with huge water wall. Staff very pleasent. Sat in back area (not bar area) and this area need updating, just uninteresting and bland. French onion soup broth watery, color was off, although it had a lot of filling and the cheese was good. Pasta... More

I was traveling for business and found this with in walking distance of my hotel and it was exactly what I was looking for. Sports bar kind of place with TONS of draft beers available, the food was very good and it had a really cool outside hangout with a big fireplace type thing in the middle of it. Most... More

Tried to enjoy lunch there on a Tuesday afternoon and the place was locked tighter than ............. Very disappointing since the food has always been delicious and the monthly special menu is a treat. Will try again soon as the closure may have been a weather type thing and not a business decision.
