This place has a great Raw Bar menu and very different dishes. Sunday Bruch has entertainment with mimosas and Bloody Mary Specials.

We tried the Yaquinto family's Italian restaurant next door (Fiamma Grille) and were impressed. We vowed to come back soon and try the other two. It took longer than planned but we finally made it to the Sardine Room and were very impressed. First, the service was superb: fast, knowledgeable, helpful in every way. We initially though about doing the... More

My husband and I absolutely adore this place - if we could afford it monthly, rather than a few times a year, we'd go more. That being said, if you go during happy hour, oysters, drinks and sliders are quite reasonable. We have never eaten a dish that was less than great, and it's usually wonderful flavors. They change the... More

The Sardine Room and its sister restaurants, LaFiamma and Compari's, all neighbors on Main Street, are all enjoyable spots for enjoying a meal with good company. I always go at least once when visiting Plymouth. The Sardine Room tends to emphasize imaginative small plates, making it possible to share a variety of flavorful dishes. Go early if you can, as...

Went to brunch there Sunday (it goes till 3pm) - I would never have though of the sardine room for brunch, but figured what the hell. In short, the food was amazing. Not just good, but every single thing they served was fantastic. And it starts at just $8. Service was great, atmosphere was cool, overall just terrific.

My wife and I have found that this place has become our default restaurant, especially when we can't figure out where we want to go to for dinner. Their eclectic and often changing menu offers something for everyone from great seafood to not your usual types and cuts of meat. The buck-a-shuck oysters are great and the shrimp and grits... More

We destroyed 6 dozen and some drinks They have small plates for dinner or large plates but after six dozen there isn't much more room. We had a great time, as always. Put this place in your list if u have never been you will... More

As a regular oyster eater from the Chesapeake Bay, I was surprised to find this restaurant with a fresh variety of oysters. Their other dishes are creative so we decided to sample the small plates to get a feel for their cooking. No disappointment. The waitress was attentive and also provided us tips for white wine to accompanied our dishes.... More

Other than the service, the atmosphere and the food - they have nothing. But to be fair, isn't that what we all are looking for?

The Sardine Room offers a raw bar with pristinely fresh oysters and seafood, along with small and large plate menus featuring American bistro fare. A rotating chalkboard menu draws on seasonal, locally sourced products, keeping daily specials fresh and regional. These sections of the menu, along with contemporary bar snacks and sides, let our patrons dictate their dining experience. A meal can be constructed of any selection of snacks, sides, small plates, large plates, or raw bar items, providing an alternative to the formality of traditional ordering. Fresh crudos, artisanal country hams, and house made pates are served in whatever order the diner desires. Large plates such as kobe flat iron steak or bouillabaisse can be shared among a group or ordered as a meal unto themselves. Our culinary team prides itself on executing creative, honest food at reasonable prices. Beyond the kitchen, our bar program features well prepared cocktails made with respectable spirits, and an emphasis on the classics. An eclectic, affordable wine list is offered alongside a michigan-heavy selection of craft beers. With a design that walks the line between big city sophistication and prohibition-era Americana, The Sardine Room gives nod to the contemporary while evoking the spirit of speakeasies, jazz clubs and seaside dives of bygone eras. Located directly across the street from Kellogg park in downtown Plymouth, The Sardine Room welcomes all interested in a good drink, a good bite and a good time.
