Excellent Food and Bier
Great Belgium inspired food, with outstanding biers to complement your order. Best dining experience we have had in a long while. The Brewery Steak Sandwich and the Grilled Onglet along with the Witface Bier were exceptional. Definitely will come back, and would recommend to others.

Love the bread! It's hard
Love the bread! It's hard to find a good bread. It reminded me the great bread you find in Europe at any bakery. In general the food was delicious.

It was our first time at Bastone
It was our first time at Bastone Brewery and we will definitely return. Great casual atmosphere, with stepped up food favorites and an interesting beer selection. Our server was attentive but not overly so, informative, and friendly.

The food was great. At our
The food was great. At our table we had the mac & cheese w/ lobster, Waterzooi & hanger steak. Only crumbs & fond memories were left at the end of the meal. The staff was there when needed, very pleasant, I have no complaints at all. The beer is great as well. Not my first trip to Bastone, and certainly will not be my last. Thank you for another terrific meal!

I would definetly recommend Bastone Brewery! I went with a group of 8 for my birthday and there was something for everyone when it came to food and drinks. I was blown away by the food. Bastone will definitely become a 'go to' for me!

Good for groups
I've used Bastone twice lately for group parties if 10-12. Both times the service was attentive and friendly. Everyone enjoyed the starters (snack board & calamari). I didn't hear any complaints about the meals either. Mine was good (chicken with orichette pasta)

21st bday, first stop
We had the seasonal beers and drinks with muddled raspberries and raspberry vodka I believe, both very tasty. We shared a few items- french fries, the artichoke fritters, artichoke dip with flat bread, lbster macaroni & cheese, a margarita pizza, and a large garden salad. All great! For 4 of us, each with 2 drinks, it only totaled about $130....we actually had too much food, took home some pizza, macaroni, and artichoke dip. Server was excellent and was attentive to it being my daughtrr's 21st birthday. The only glitch was that we made reservations for 5 and ended up with 4. They initially seated us at a large table back by the kitchen,but at our request, moved us to a booth when we saw one open for 4. Would definitely return.

My family dined on a Sunday evening. Kids eat free on Sundays. The portions and price were decent. I loved the brewery steak sandwich. The pretzel appetizers were great too. If you've never tried Bastone, I would highly recommend it!

Imaginative menu, well done execution, excellent service, and great beer. It’s a keeper!

Always love Bastones. I've
Always love Bastones. I've had better experiences though. Food felt a bit over salted and the frites were a bit soggier than normal. Although our waitress was very nice, she wasn't very attentive and seemed a bit flustered or maybe new to the restaurant.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
we ate at bastone on sunday. the food and service were outstanding. everyone liked what they ordered, the portions were generous and it looked and tasted great. get the mussels with blue cheese and pommes frites with roasted garlic! great beer list, my only complaint was that they need to add some better white wine by the glass.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bastone is such a good place
All I can say is Bastone is a place where ya wanna go whether for date or hangout with friends. They have good service and variety options on wine/beer.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bastone fits the bill for a good meal and beer/wine options. Over the years they have expanded their menu from traditional Belgian pub fare to have more adventurous offerings. It can get a bit noisy, especially with the weekend Royal Oak crowd, but it is worth the consideration.

Celebration with out of town guests
Everything was wonderful! The food was excellent and the two bite dessert's are genius! Family from out of town were
thrilled and have put it on their "must do" list for every trip back to Detroit! Our server was friendly, thoughtful and fun.
I can't wait to come back!

Good beer and food
The food was especially good. This is a nice place for kids and they had no trouble with our group of 8. We will definitely return. The valet parking was convenient and reasonably priced.

Enjoyed the food,our reservation was honored on time, the waiter was efficient and friend.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thought this was a great place. The only thing that it lacked was a gluten free menu. I have been gluten free for a long time and most menus have come along with the times but they have little to basically no gluten free options. The rest of the group had a great dinner. The hanger steak was amazing as was the scallops. Everyone loves the beer but th waitor needed to be more knowledgeable about what beers where comparable to regular domestic beers. Overall the experience was great and all but myself would return. I will come back if they get a gluten free menu.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience (as always)
What a great gem in the heart of Royal Oak featuring a great beer and drink menu with exceptional tasting food. The steak sandwich on potato cakes is amazing. This was our 3rd visit and decided to try the lobster mac and cheese. What a delicious dinner!

Enjoyed Bastone Brewery during ABE
Arts, Eats and Beats was crowded - we did not want to eat food while walking, so I turned to Open Table and found a real gem on Main Street. Classy, a bit eclectic and surprisingly delicious menu.

First night out since having our little one. Great food and always good beer sampler. First time trying the pretzel sticks which the five cheese sauce is wonderful. Great service as well.

New Look and Seasonal Menu work wel
We enjoyed the new October menu as well as the sesonal beer which are always first rate. The new main floor look also is an improvement and on the nite we were there the service was top notch. I like the seasonal touches to the menu and look forward to more of the same in the future. Mussels first rate and by being able to select the sauce adds to the personal touch and oh my the fires or frites - a wow.
we will be back in a heartbeat

we planned a dinner out with my 2 daughteers and their friends ....to celebrate our 32 wedding aniversary. Since it is October we wanted to do a Octoberfest outing. Bastones had a very appealing special menu as well as their normal fare.
Made reservations for 7:00 on Thursday and got their a little early ...they seated us promptly and the night started out great....we had the mussels and calamari as appetisers and they disapppeared ....my wife had the fish and chips , my daughters and friend had the pork tenderloin and i had the hanger steak...food was done very well the tastes were spot on everything was hot
We will go again to try other items.....looking forward to it

Better than the regular pub fare
Who ever runs this place knows something about food. You sense people are actually preparing food and not opening up cans and frozen boxes. Calamari was not little unchewable rubberbands but strips of calamari steaks served with a garlic aioli. Sandwiches were good, pizza OK. Fish and chips were very good. Real piece of fish, not frozen prebreaded strips. We have dined here several times through the years, always a good experience when we are looking for good pub grub food. Get a reservation, it is almost a;ways packed.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I enjoyed the food. The service was great. Our waitress was very helpful with her menu knowledge. I need to go back and try he mussels. My 10 year old son loved the warm pretzel appetizer.

A festive autumn evening at Bastone
We had a great time at Bastone Brewery on a chilly autumn evening. The comfort food and plentiful beers, in a festive atmosphere, made for a memorable outing with friends.

Marvin was a delight!
The food was delicious! We had the pretzel sticks with cheese sauce, which I could have made a meal of. The thin crust pizza was so good. One of my friends had the linguine with chicken and didn't think it was outstanding, but the other friend had the steak and it was fabulous. Overall, the dining experience was great, with the exception of the noise level - but that's tough to control.
The highlight of the experience was our delightful waiter, Marvin. He was informed, well-trained, so personable and accomodating...and he's a singer! I would come back any time and ask for Marvin.

Lively with good food!
We stopped by Bastone's before a show at the Comedy Castle and had a great dinner there. They make their own beer and the selection was awesome. My husband enjoyed the Steak Mingonettes, and I loved the scallop dish.
One odd thing was their salad. Our friend wanted blue cheese dressing, the waiter said they had none. Then he asked for ranch - again, no luck. The house salad with mixed greens, poached pears, carmelized walnuts and a balsamic vinegrette. It PRACTICALLY BEGGED for some blue cheese, but came without -- yet, the menu said they had blue cheese in a few of their dishes. This would be so easy to fix, and I hope they do. It would take a VERY GOOD meal to one that was Outstanding.

Good Beer, Good Food
It's a brewery so it helps if you're into beer. While my knowledge of the finer aspects of brewing beer is limited, I will say that the recommended Witface ale was a fitting accompaniment to the chicken/caper dish I ordered. A suggested brew appears with every item on the menu so you needn't be left wondering. Calamari as an appetizer was very good. Portions are not huge so you needn't worry about over-eating. Didn't sample the desserts. Service was attentive, not intrusive.
Worth a try.
