“5 stars for authentic Michigan white fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

We love street side for it's white fish. True Michigan white fish. It comes with delicious rice and vegetables. Street side is very crowded on the weekends and they don't take reservations. Definitely a MI favorite.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

My husband, mother and I visited this restaurant for dinner after many recommendations. We sat outside which was nice but the service was utterly horrible, on many occasions the waitress walked away from the table as we were in the middle of ordering! We had to wait 45 minutes to even get our drinks order! The lobster bisque was average, my husband and mother had the cheeseburger which they said was ok and I had a steak which was good. The prices were high, the good was just ok and the service was horrible. With so much choice in the area I would suggest you try elsewhere.

“SMALL QUAINT STREETSIDE RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Great service and food. They have about any type of seafood and it is fresh. Great breads and ample supple of wines for that lunch or dinner. Open air seating plus sidewalk seating. We had perch; fabulous, and a Poboy sandwich. Try the special coleslaw and top it off with Rays ice-cream. I had coffee and Heath. I am heading back to try what looked like a great dinner menu. Good place to stop for an after work drink. Small and quiet. Not recommended for families. But "friends for a meal" or a one on one business lunch; just the place. Parking close by and 2 hours are free.

Excellent Cioppino, salad, and fish

“Favorite Restaurant Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

I love this restaurant! It is really one of my favs...not just in Michigan but of anywhere! I have had wonderful experiences every time. The food is always fresh and unique. The bread is some of the best and is server hot with butter and garlic. The coleslaw is wonderful...not creamy but more of a vinegar dressing and make sure to add blue cheese! I have never had a bad entree. I try to order the specials as they are always unique. It is a really tiny restaurant...3 small tables wide and not good for large groups. But the patio in the summer is nice. Definitely check out this gem in downtown Birmingham...you will not be disappointed!!
