The wife and I had always heard about Rosie's but have never made it to Ferndale to try it out. Being from the western burbs the Ferndale and Royal Oak area seem to far to travel to just grab a bite to eat. After reading the reviews here I was concerned about our get together with a group of her co workers but figured the beer would be cold either way.
We had the game room area reserved for our group on a Saturday night. Our server Jess did a great job, so much that when restaurants normally add gratuity to the bill I don't add to it since I don't agree with the practice as it seems like you get sub par service since the server knows there getting a tip regardless. But due to her service I didn't feel the %20 added to the tab was enough for the work she did and made sure she received the %25 which she deserved. With multiple couples and all the tabs to go along with she managed to take care of everyone. We were impressed.
Food wise we ordered the potato skins, artichoke dip (wife thought a bit to garlicky), chicken tenders, quesidillas, tortilla chips with salsa and the cheese sauce. We also tried the buffalo chicken wrap and chicken cobb sandwich for our meals. All the food was tasty and served in a reasonable amount of time.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the food runners weren't the most pleasant as they would just walk up and state the name of the item they had and throw it down. A little personality would be nice on there part. Say "Hi" smile, etc. The other thing was while we had the game room and were able to chat with everyone the place is rather loud. If we had been in the regular dining room if you had a larger group having discussions with other would be tough. Two older couples were leaving when we did and we overheard them complaining about the noise too and how it was hard for the four of them to chat.
