“Great stop before a show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

I have been here about five times and it never disappoints. The fries are among the best anywhere. The scallops are very good. The tuna was excellent. My husband had the fried chicken and waffles. He would order it again.

The server was very friendly but forgetful. All in all, a good dinner before the show at the music hall.

Great food and atmosphere. The Fish Tacos and Cajun Shrimp were excellent. The setting was comfortable and price was very reasonable.

“Great Bloody Mary bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

This place had good food, but had one of the best bloody bars i've ever been too. It is close to Comerica so it's a great place to go before a game!

“Very good food but service lacked for us.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The visit we had was very good and if the waitress could have been a bit quicker, then it would have pushed this to excellent. Very good selection of food choices to have and there is something for everyone. Portions are actually pretty good for a small plate place and my wife and I split 3 small plates with a dessert and it was plenty of food. A good location close to the Fox and Comerica and worth a stop if in the area. The frustrating thing was that the tables that came after us got their food before us. That being said, I would still go back as the food is worth it.

“Give it a try!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The food is excellent, the staff is super. We went for lunch on a weekday so it was not very busy. Good way to support small business in the city. My son had chicken and waffles and loved it. My other son had sliders. We parked in a parking garage for the opera house and it was very accessible. Enjoy, will be back!
