Best "old fashioned" cocktail ever. The food was very good, I had walleye and also tasted the scallop entree. The coconut cake, served too cold - the piece I took home was much better the next day served after it had warmed to room temperature. The Key lime pie was outstanding.

The service was impeccable! Daniel was absolutely outstanding. The food however was just ok.... the Branzino was bland as was the Mac and cheese. The lamb chops were very good but not exactly why I come to a seafood restaurant. The lobster from South Africa wasn’t worth the price. I love good service but at this price point better food would’ve been nice.

I have been going to Joe Muer's for 50+ years. I love the place. Our experience was still great but not perfect. Had the branzino which i thought was a little soft/mushy, tasted very good. Started with king crab chilled which was fine but the sauce provided was thick and sour cream like, didn't seem like the right sauce for crab. Server was just ok, pace was too fast for us so we did not order our entrees to slow it down. will of course go back but i have been accustomed to better experiences.

The seafood was excellent, the service perfect. The vegan food was crummy!
Due to holiday season there have been some celebrations, which have created a noise atmosphere. The ambience on the riverside is fantastic.

Our favorite restaurant in Detroit. My wife and I try to make the 200 mile trip at least twice a year just to eat there. Old school linen tablecloth elegance. Service is always great. Food is perfectly prepared. Good selection on the menu. Best seafood restaurant in Michigan if not the entire Midwest. I can’t wait to go back. Our server, Jessica, was delightful and had many helpful suggestions.

Overall it was very good dinner however the grouper (daily special) was too oily and salty. For $49 dish, I would expect much better. i am not sure of the grilled selections but the souce in general was too oily for my taste. Maybe it should be served on the side or added on the table since not everyone likes too much souce and definitely no one needs that much salt.
Again the food tasted pretty good in general (bread, soup, desert) but I think our expectations were too high based on reviews we read and we were slightly disappointed. Maybe our selections were the exceptions to the rest of the menu.
On the other hand, the great service and thoughtful desert presentation (with writing of our anniversary) were the highlights of our special evening.
Thank you.

Our dining EXPERIENCE was Superb! This was the most flavorful meal I have ever had. The environment was very relaxing as was our Waitress. Dawn was calm with positive energy. Very knowledgeable about the menu and items. She answered all our questions when ordering. Everything came to our table with excellent timing. We in no way felt we were rushed to enjoy nor leave when our dinner was complete. This was truly an experience I will NEVER forget. Thank You.

Not our usual haunt, but it was our first wedding anniversary so we wanted to celebrate a bit. Excellent service and the food was superb. The piano player even learned "won't you be my neighbor" on the fly after I requested it for my wife. I highly recommend the stuffed flounder with creamed spinach or the monk fish for your main course. We also had some raw oysters and the lobster corn dogs (deep fried lobster on a stick). Sounds odd, but it was awesome! We had the apple explosion for dessert (because it was the smallest dessert they had) and they customized it for our anniversary (see photo). Again... excellent. Thank you to our server Keith F. for a memorable evening.

Service was good but food is highly overrated. We were seated for iur reservation late for what seemed to be no reason. There were many available seats and no explanation. I cant see myself returning. Lots of dining options. Literally no vegetarian options. They obviously knowo the restaurant business but they arw out of touch with current trends.
