I arrived for my birthday dinner and was immediately impressed by the view of the Detroit River. I loved the live piano music as well. The wait staff was extremely friendly and even offered to take a picture of myself and my girlfriend after they heard us talking about taking one. I tried several menu options that were suggested by my waitress, and I enjoyed them all. The pumpkin cheesecake was an excellent end to an excellent meal. It was my first time at Joe Muer's and I think it is my new favorite option in the Detroit area for a high end dining experience.

The food was the best I have ever eaten in Detroit and our waiter was phenomenal. There was a piano player later in the night which was nice. The only issue I had was that the light bulb above our table was flickering badly the whole time and that was annoying. Other than that it was great

Loved the pianist. Great view. Disappointed that one of two meals was not served warm. Told staff when asked, but didn't want to waste food sending it back. Disappointed again though, that there was no follow on response like a dessert or coupon. Probably would look for a different restaurant next time.

We and our friends celebrated our wedding anniversaries on Tuesday night at Joe Muer's . Everything was wonderful except the party in the booth next to us had a gentleman who spoke very loudly. His guests were quite elderly which might be the reason he was so loud. This was not the restaurant's fault.

I took my husband for dinner on his 40th birthday. There were at least 4 tables in the waterfront but the hostess sat us toward the side. When we asked to sit at a table facing the water she said they had many reservations and were saving those tables. After going back and forth she sat us at the waterfront table but it put a little damper on our night. Other than that everything was great and our server made the night!

First time in years that we had any issues steaks came out over done the lobster was only cooked half way service was less then superior truly disappointed this has always been my favorite restaurant until now. You will have issues with new restaurants in the area with this kind of service and overcooked meal

Always outstanding seafood between the old standby Muer's classicas and a vatiety of creative new options. Unparralled service in a spectaculat evnie overlooking the Detroit River. My #1 spot for a special meal in the city of Detroit.

Service was excellent, Atmosphere was excellent, all the food was delicious except for the dessert. We ordered the carrot cake which is served cold, it had a caramel layer which just didn’t mesh with the carrot cake. I’d go again just order a different dessert haha

I took my mom here for her birthday and it was the perfect way to spoil her for the night. The food and service were both amazing, but they better be for the price!

Glen our waitstaff was very attentive, knowledgeable and kind. The scallops were the best I’ve ever had!!!
Glen suggested the “stone crabs” which were very good too!
Every person we came in contact with from Joe Muer’s was friendly!!!! It was a very relaxing evening and we will definitely return!

Sincerely,

Food was poor. Hard to overcome that. I had seafood salad at $27. Shrimp were boring and crab was tasteless. Salmon spread was caustic. The restaurant was nearly empty. Appropriately!

Pricey but good. Very good service. Enjoyed the lobster and the salmon and the chocolate torte cake. Was louder than I thought it would be due to a loud larger table. I would also ask for a window table overlooking downtown next time. Very fun looking bar area.

I have been here 2 other times and this is my girlfriend’s favorite restaurant that is why I took her here for sweetest day and planned on proposing to her the service this time was terrible her glass was empty the entire time our meal was at the table our waitress only came 4 times to the table never checked on us! The food was amazing but that is all the service this time was terrible from the time we walked in the door they didn’t check our coats or ask if they could. I did not propose because she was so frustrated with this we drove from Bay City to come here and this was what we got for the 200$ plus bill I’m not happy with it this time every other time was amazing this time I don’t think she will ever come back or I

19 Oct 2019 --- Another highly successful dinner at Joe Muer's. Miguel and CJ always a welcome sight when I walk in for dinner. Read my previous review(s) on Yelp! for everything you need to know.

Tonight's choices were the 14 oz. Dry Aged New York Wagyu Strip Steak, the Georges Bank Scallops, the Utica Tomahawk Pork Chop, and the Dover Sole a la Meuniere. Carrot cake and Coconut cake with coffees rounded out another perfect night of food and service!!!
