I love coming here on the weekends! It’s a fun spot to be. There’s multiple floors where you can dance & the food is cheap & really good! It’s also a fun place to be to celebrate St Patrick’s Day!

We spent the day in Detroit celebrating a friend's birthday. This was our first stop. We ordered drinks and appetizers. Actually, the food was very tasty. The salsa for the chips was fresh. The portions for the boneless wings were quite large. The drinks were...More
