The main thing is the view. You are sitting on the deck and watching the yachts and boats going by, and the sun is going down. Very nice.
The food is average and a bit pricey.

Enjoyed our visit to Brownies on their opening day 2018. We've heard some great music here and they have some excellent bands lined up for the future so we will certainly return. Some major renovations have also been done over the winter months. That said, lets talk about the food. My wife and I both had salads which were fresh and tasty while my wife had the fish taco without the shell (making it gluten-free) and found it delicious as a "plate". I enjoyed the French onion soup too. Jennifer Christiansen gave a flawless performance as she always does. A real standout performance was in the service provided by Ashley, our server, who made sure we were completely happy with our food and drinks and always with a smile. March is a bit early for the boating season, but with their new chef, great food and service, this will be the hot spot on the dock as the weather warms up. We'll be back.

Thank you for the compliment. We are glad you enjoyed your dining experience with us. You are correct, it's still a little cold to be out on a boat, unless your a fishermen. Don't let the weather stop you, we have some great specials we are running during the week. Looking forward to your next visit.

Been here few times . Impressed by level of service and the food . Eastsider all my life so I have seen different restaurants here .. Jacks etc . The food quality is so so improved from the last few names on the place . Really great clam chowder , east coast style , not thick to hold a spoon at full mast. Good salads and fish . And management that comes to each table to ask how things are. Very cool .

This is a nice restaurant located with a view of the lake St Clair. It has a full bar and good variety of seafood and other American food choices. The server was nice and food quality was real good, even though something could be said about limited quantity. It was Saturday evening and the place did have so few guests. The service was quick and the manager stopped by to check on us.
