Quick walk from Woodward near Comerica Park it was busy but drinks were fast and food was good. They are used to the fast pace pre tigers game or concert so you can get in and out even on a busy day.

The food was pretty good. However, went into the bathroom and was afraid to sit on the toilet. There was a ring of black mold around the water line in the toilet bowl &the floor and counter were dirty. We should have left because when...More
