Good high quality food. The one on Orchard Lake in West Bloomfield has shrimp which is why I go there sometimes instead of the one in Livonia. I can add charbroiled shrimp to my Ceasar salad and it's heaven. The give you a generous portion of shrimp but on this visit the amount of salad greens was smaller for some... More

After a recent move to the west coast - we really missed this restaurant. As an excuse to visit, we returned to the local Detroit area recently and had to visit this place! The food and service is amazing. My favorite is the old fashioned hamburger - fresh ground meat and good quality toppings make for an amazing burger. Service... More

Both service and food were wonderful but the menu in the restaurant did not match the on-line menu except for a few small items. We were a group of 10 and the restaurant would not take reservations.

I can't say this is the best food I have ever had but it is very good for a neighborhood place. The burger and fries are the best thing on the menu.

Everything was great for a quiet dinner. I met a friend there in the winter and it was lovely looking out at the snow in such a warm atmosphere. The food was perfect, the service was great.

Noisy and bustling food is always good here, selection is a bit limited but it is unlikely you will not find something you like. Fri and Sat evening always a long wait......while I am waiting I find myself wishing I shares in this place

The food is well prepared but way overpriced for what it is... A chain restaurant. Average at best. Alex's salad is tasty too bad it isn't included in meal.

I love the prime rib and the ribs. Excellent mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, and fries. This place also consistently has the best service I have experienced. Great staff and the best food around for medium price range. My favorite place for special occasions.
