    The entire Brookshire experience is top-notch and the service is impeccable . The staff will do whatever is necessary to provide food and drink as you need it prepared or seasoned. The food is always fresh and the servings are ample. Our server - Michelle - is a stand-out and should be singled out as an employee who goes above and beyond to welcome her guests .

    Best steak I have had in a very long time. I do not know how they could serve us so fast as they had other tables to wait on. Excellent service. There were other people dining as well yet we felt like we were the only ones in the place that the whole staff were only focusing on us. By far one of the best experiences we have had in a very long time. It was our 20 year wedding anniversary and it was perfect. I cannot say enough good about the experience so I will stop. Try it you will not be sorry.

    My wife and I dined here for our 30th wedding anniversary and it was very good. The appetizer selection was a little limited and there was no surf and turf selection on the entree list. With those selections the exerience might have been outstanding, but it was very good overall.

    Beautiful hotel ambience surrounds the Brookshire.....and the restaurant doesn't disappoint. Sit outdoors for a more casual experience overlooking the Paint Creek River or inside for a more fine dining experience. Our entrees were wonderful...all of us enjoyed it not a complaint among us....the cocktails superbly mixed....mine was a spicy bloody Mary that had you thirsting for more. Desserts which we shared...Mile high ,meringue pie was the best I have had and the other desserts sounded wonderful and made it hard to choose....plan n retiring again and again.

    We went on a Monday for our anniversary. The restaurant was understandably quiet since it was Monday, but the patio was fun and lively. We ate in the dining room but could see the patio where a fun happy hour was happening next to the great view. I am a true food snob and find it's hard to find good food here in the burbs, but this was really good. We shared the calamari which was perfectly cooked and I loved the lemon and capers on it. My husband had the carbonara pasta. He loved it, but was stuffed so beware, it's filling. I had the halibut with the grilled gnocchi and it was perfectly cooked and delicious. We will be back for another special occasion.

    Reservation for my birthday dinner. ONE server for the entire floor. Simple dinner took nearly 3 hours. Food fair with husband's simple order incorrect. Chose to not deal with the error as this was 1.5 hours into the ordeal. Ordered dessert not knowing that there was a complimentary one for me. Ala Carta'd to death.

    Despite the fact that only 2 tables were filled for breakfast, it took a long time for someone to seat me. However, the service did pick up and actually was quite good and attentive. The food was more interesting than the typical breakfast fare; I had the Frittata of the day - very good. The ambiance can't be beat.

    We had another great dinner at the Brookshire Restaurant in the Royal Park Hotel. We usually hit Elliot's Lounge, which is very nice but not as formal. For special occasions (a birthday in this case) we eat at the Brookshire. Our waiter was Carter who is one of the best in the Detroit area. He is very knowledgeable on the wines, food, and specials and keeps us entertained on many different topics. Many times we buy from the specialty wine list where they have fantastic 1/2 off specials. This night we did an excellent St. Emilion from the normal wine list. I had the Steak Diane which has incredible flavors and is cooked at your table. My wife had the Maytag Filet which she said melted in her mouth. Our appetizer was a tuna tartar.

    Food was good, not great. Filet was cooked correctly (medium rare) but was dry. Normally a rest puts a pad off flavored butter or a little Demi glase on the plate even if die presentation. Very up eventful. Mashed potatoes were cold. My dinner was good, steak Diane and presentation was nice. But it was not hot.

    I had coupons to use and it was my son's birthday. We decided to take advantage and go out to eat which we don't normally do. It was a Monday night . . . . not busy, but our service was exquisite and the food was excellent. We arrived later than I wanted so I felt a little rushed but the waitstaff did not. The ambience is beautiful - I have stayed in many hotels, and ate ate many restaurants but this one seems like a home away from home, only better . . . and I only live 3 miles away. Thank you for a wonderful experience while enjoying my son's 23rd birthday.

    the restaurant itself has an outstanding look and feel and the food only made it better. we had a special coupon for the restaurant so we tried a good variety. the service was outstanding and was on top with everything including filling the water and taking our order. the food was excellent as well. i had the filet and it was very juicy and delicious. the only thing i didnt so much like was the mac and cheese we had there which was pretty bland and the only reason why food was 4 stars. we finished with dessert which was creme brulee and it was the highlight of the entire dinner with its beautiful presentation. overall, this is an amazing restaurant and if i could afford it i would go again

    The only reason I gave 3 stars is because my wife enjoyed her short ribs & rigatoni. Otherwise the only good thing about the meal was the dirty martini and even that could have been improved (chilled glass, blue cheese olives, etc). The calamari was small & chewy with a too-salty "Thai" sauce, the sea bass was over-priced, underwhelming & no better than anything I could've gotten at Red Lobster. The server seemed detached & not concerned with checking to make sure we were having a pleasurable experience (which we were, but only because we enjoy each other - had nothing to do with the dining experience). I will not be returning & would not recommend this place.
