    Dining here can be an experience. Ambience, location, staff are welcoming. The sides sometimes can trump the main course. I tried the Goat (a special) on this particular visit - very flavorful.

    It may very well be the best restaurant in Detroit. You should probably go with a steak of some variety, but the Bronzino is good.

    The rosemary fries were so good that I contemplated if I could bear eating regular fries ever again... In other words, definitely order them!

    I agree with others - the steak is Applebee's quality. But the salads, apps, and sides were yummy. I wasn't impressed by the brussel sprouts, but I'm somewhat of a bs conneseiur. :)

    With some of the best happy hour specials in town, plus a meaty main menu that would make any carnivore drool, this is anything but your average hotel dining room. [Eater 38 Member]
