We had a very enjoyable evening dining at Ferris. Celebrating a birthday on a Monday evening so it was very quite which I enjoyed. Our server, Matthew, was very entertaining and attentive without over doing it. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere very much.

The Steak was amazing as usual. As was the rest of the entree. The Bruschetta was just ok. And they no longer have that awesome pretzel bread that goes with the Spinach artichoke dip.

Delicious dinner with family and friend. Good service and great ambiance. Some of us dined at the original location on Detroit and it’s still one of our favorites. Can’t wait to return.

Always love going to eat here, never disappointed. Scallops are fantastic and even went away from the steak for once. They can cook more than just steak.

Never ended up eating. Had a 2:30 reservation, told our table was being cleaned. We stood there for 15 minutes while everyone else was seated. I finally spoke up and asked if we were going to be seated. Finally took us to a table, we sat there for 5 minutes, no one asked if we wanted anything to drink, or greeted us at all. We realize that we were the last seating for a buffet, but for 43.00 per person, I'd think a little more respect could have been shown. We ended up leaving without even eating. Was very disappointed in the experience.

We went for Easter brunch and the food was pretty bad. They did have a nice carving station of ham and prime rib but the sides and baking options left something to be desired (think store bought stale croissants and danishes, Eggo waffles and frozen green beans). I realize that it was a buffet on a holiday and they had to cater for the masses, but it was like $45 per person- the food could of been fresh at least! I can’t speak for their normal menu but this experience hasn’t given be an incentive to try.

Let's start with after checking in receiving a email that our reservation was cancelled. Young lady at door indicated to me she just cancelled after seating us "because it doesn't matter". Have no clue what Open Table was or why it was on screen.

Then my Medium steak was delivered raw so I had to send back. Waitress agreed it was "bleeding". They did bring back the steak which was now cooked right but the fries were under cooked. Think they were trying to get food back out and pulled the fires out half cooked. Fries here are the best and the reason I usually go there. They did offer us a free dessert for our troubles which was nice.

Six of us went to celebrate employees' 10 and 5 years of service with company. Service was great. Food was absolutely delicious. The next day we were all still discussing how wonderful our meals were! Four of us had the petite filet - they were all cooked to perfection! I would HIGHLY recommend Ferris for an evening out dinner.

Diverse choices in cuts done to perfection. Specials offered in addition to regular menu. Open spacing so you do not feel like you are sitting on top of the next able. Minimal vegie side offerings, but prepared to bring out the best flavors. Great dessert and after dinner drink offerings.

Appetizers & cocktails superb. Service was good, but she forgot my husbands appetizer altogether. Steaks amazing!! Pinot Grigio perfectly chilled. Draft beers delish. Nice touch was the little cake w/candle presented to our son & wife—celebrating their 30th Wedding Anniversary! Truly, all 7 of us were delighted & we thank you very much😊

Food and service were great. One filet was slightly overcooked, but still very flavorful. The shrimp scampi with the steak was fantastic. Overall Ferris is very good food and good value for the cost.

Besides the service which was excellent the food was mediocre at best. Especially for what we paid. It was also brought out Luke warm so by the time we got to eat it was cool. I ordered the mahi mahi special with lemon caper sauce and it came out swimming in water with lemon with not much flavor. My husband ordered the prime rib which was not very flavorful either. If you want to go here for a quiet date night this is not the place for that either. It was very loud. The drinks were ok and the scalloped and red skinned mashed potatoes were pretty good.

If you are looking for mom and pops dining with a $$$ price tag then it’s your place to eat. Nice atmosphere BUT the for money I would go to Red Steakhouse or something else. Food is just not what I expected as I could of made that myself at home. Steak isn’t up to par ....

Ferris Steakhouse has become our "place" to celebrate our anniversary. I popped the question a year ago, and we absolutely LOVE our time and experience with the establishment. The food and it's preparation is second to none, the ambiance allows us to feel like we're the only two there, and our server (Matt) was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and particulars. We sincerely look forward to each time we visit Ferris', and the memories we share from our encounter will keep smiles on our faces for the many years to come. Thank you to Ferris Steakhouse & Tavern for helping us create our moment in time, and for sharing in those.

Overall the food was good, but not high end steak house good. There was something wrong with my wife's order and mine. She ordered a side vegetable the she never received and I ordered my baked potato with butter and sour cream and they brought me a loaded potato instead. We ordered our steaks black and blue and there was so little blue cheese we could barely taste it. For the price there are better steak houses.

We went for valentine’s day and made an early reservation. The later it got the more crowded it was and the tables were so close together I felt like I was having a conversation with our neighbors. Other than that it was excellent!!
