Incredible ambiance along the Detroit Riverfront. Gorgeous live piano playing adult contemporary by the bar. We were seated by the window, in a very comfortable booth, and had the pleasure of having Wayne provide our dining experience. His no pressure, and hands on expertise was helpful and educational. He was friendly and knowledgeable, and provided many excellent recommendations. Kudos good sir! We will be back!

We bought a couple who do not drink, so we’re sure we weren’t a priority as seen by the fact that two staff members stood over our shoulders waiting for us to leave right after we said we didn’t want desert. Before we left the table they started clearing the table. One of our party had set her sweater on the table as she bent down to get her purse and they wrapped her sweater in the tablecloth. At least it’s given us a good story.

Waiter rattled off many select entrees and one was a 5lb lobster stuffed with shrimp or crab meat. My wife wanted it stuffed with crab however it was just sold is what he stated. The next couple who sat next to us he offered the same 5lb lobster. My wife locked eyes with him in shock it was not sold.

We were charged 20% gratuity for two of us. Why? We would ha e paid it anyway but thought that was presumptuous. We sat at the bar.

We just LOVE Joe Muer’s! We celebrated are birthdays and Sandra took special care of us.... it was so nice to get out of the house and enjoy a beautiful dinner. We love going here because we always know it will be exceptional. The manager checked on us twice just to say hello... we really appreciated everything for our special night!

Love the look of the restaurant & location near Detroit River. Food is attractive & excellent. Sushi was fantastic. Servers are friendly, good and accommodating but a little sporadic, a few times they were gone a little too long leaving us waiting for the next course or the bill. But the restaurant was very busy & we’re just getting back to “real” dining so we’ll chalk it up to that. We will definitely be back soon. Great night dining out💗

Wayne was our waiter, he was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and offered up meal suggestions based on our selections. He was very attentive, and ensured our night was wonderful.

The pianist was so beyond incredible, his voice was not over powering but was filled with soul. After requesting one song he came by our table and thanked us for the gratuity; when we didn’t think it was enough so we gave him more with a request to play me a song, one of my all time favorites “Ain’t No Sunshine”. He did a superb job!

The restaurant itself, is wonderful. I don’t know how else to say it, they have amazing views, music that isn’t just okayed on a radio and staff that truly put the effort in to make sure your night is great.

For food:
We started off with both the calamari and king crab appetizers; both were incredible. I very much enjoyed the light breading on the calamari, in comparison to some places that have such thick breading that you barely taste the calamari. King crab was served table side, Wayne cut the legs for us so nicely and of course had us set up with drawn butter.
We decided to share the lobster bisque, which was also beautifully done table side. The care that Wayne put into the table side treatment was just fantastic, almost as fantastic as the lobster bisque!
For entrees I admit I went to the least likely chosen dish- whitefish BUT I LOVE IT SO MUCH! It was perfectly seasoned and so flaky! My date choose the special Swordfish with Diablo Shrimp (which I most certainly had one or two bites of) it was exquisite!
For Dessert we choose the carrot cake paired with a port wine. Mouth is watering now thinking of that cake!!!

Decided last minute to adventure out for a dinner date and it was well worth it. The food was one of the best meals I’ve had in quite a long time, the service was spectacular, and the ambiance was upscale while comfortable. Will absolutely be back.
