I won two gift certificates from this establishment that they had donated to a charity golf outing. So we decided to give it a try for a late lunch. It wasn't busy, there was not a game being played. On both occasions, the food was...More

Very disappointed. I booked a party for up to 30 and when I arrived they had forgotten we were coming. Luckily the place was nearly empty and they could seat us immediately. The service was painfully slow and the food was flavorless. Then they messed...More

We parked across the street before the tigers game. After the game was over we were looking for a place to beat the traffic & grab some food. We came in to Bookies and got one of the last tables inside, it was quite busy....More

Short walk to Fox Theatre, Comerica Park, and Ford Field. Reasonably priced burgers, wraps, and sandwiches are served with fries. Michigan Chicken Salad Sandwich is very tasty and refreshing. Arrive early to be seated on 3rd Floor Open Patio.

Bookies is a place you should consider using before events downtown. Easily walkable to comerica park and that allows you to skip traffic jams leaving town. Great atmosphere and beer selection too.

Great private party area with separate bar. Food was decent for a bar. Music was lacking. But overall a good time.

This was our 3rd choice on a recent lunch excursion to the area. To me there was nothing to write home about. Food was OK. Ambiance - could have been anywhere. Service - very friendly but a little absent minded. With so many choices available...More

Great place before or after Tiger's games. Two parking lots next to the restaurant and about 3 blocks to Comerica. They also have a shuttle. Great burgers, beer selection; skip the salads. Not much for ambience but if you want a cold beer and burger...More

Good bar food, burgers, wings, etc. Service is pretty good, and the beer is cold. Parking is plentiful which is a premium around there. I go there 4 to 5 time per year. If you want a reasonable meal with big screen TVs and free...More
