I have been to Joe's multiple times. It is a tradition for my husband and I to visit for Valentine's Day. I have never left disappointed. I dream of the Tristan lobster tail for weeks before coming in. My husband, an avid steak eater, swears the filet is one of the best he's ever had. The service is always superb, especially in comparison to newer steak and seafood restaurants downtown. The server was very up front about prices that weren't shown on the menu, which we appreciated. He was there when we needed him, and left us to enjoy our meals and time together when we didn't need him. I will always come back to Joe Muer's as long as it stays the way it is!

From our check in with the host, to coat check, to getting our preferred window seating, our belated Valentine's dinner was fantastic! Our server was knowledgeable and provided just the right amount of service needed. He took his time with us, and provided suggestions as well when we were indecisive on meal choices. Thank you again - great evening out!

Wonderful meal! Attentive but not obtrusive service. Certainly on the expensive side, but given the quality of the entire experience, worth it. Tough to beat Joe's entire vibe in Detroit, in my opinion.

The food was not great, I had the lobster bisque and flavor was too strong, the fried calamari was too grease, and the sauce for the lamb chops was too salty. My wife had the wedge salad and it was very simple in flavor.
The chocolate soufflé was not great, seems like those you buy at the supermarket and warmer up in the microwave.
Honestly I was not happy with the quality of the food, I had high expectations and they felt short. First and last time I visit this restaurant.
Ambiance, service and view are great but food is a big fail

This was our first of 18 anniversaries spent at Joe Muer and it will not be our last. The staff was pleasant, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was nice. We were pleased from the front desk, to the gentleman that seated us, all the way to Adam who refreshed our beverages and our server Amanda.

Joe Muer’s is a Detroit classic! The food is outstanding. It is not inexpensive, but it is worth the price if you consider the entire experience. The view along the Detroit River is beautiful. The service — provided to us this time by Eddie, is impeccable. We recommend asking for a window table not just for the view, but because you are not completely surrounded by other tables.
We ordered the crab ball appetizer and it was to die for. Our luncheon meals included fish and chips and a lobster roll for the second diner. Both were delicious. Mashed potatoes are outstanding. We ordered a side of coleslaw to share, and had enough for five people. Yes, we took some home. It was a birthday celebration, and the restaurant provided a lovely after dinner dessert for the birthday girl at no charge. Very classy. We would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion, or for fine dining anytime. You will not be disappointed!

I went for my birthday on the 6th, my friend ordered a fish, then they came and told her about 20min later it wasnt there, she ordered something else that she didnt really want, then someone spilled water all over her dress without so much as a sorry let me get her a dessert or something from a manager and I just felt like our server was doing a spill instead of really reading his table and seeing what we were in the mood for. Just telling us about the most expensive menu items when had he looked he wouldve noticed we liked cocktails and drinks, so he should've tried to upsell us on drinks. My friend left with a soaked dress in the cold, so I didnt have the best birthday, dont think I'll be returning, should've kept our reservations at Eddie vs like we were going to do in the 1st place. Drinks and food were nice, overall experience for my birthday,not so much.

Food was delicious, the server described everything we asked. We were seated right by the piano, though, and while it wasn't loud, it was sometimes hard to hear each other. Great view, and the dessert cart was incredible!

As they were pouring our water, we noticed a bug was in the water. Our server Dawn, was standing there as was the guy pouring the water. He immediately took the glass and replaced it. I also mentioned it to the manager when he came over and asked how everything was. “Fine besides the bug in the water” At restaurant such as Joe Muer I wouldn’t expect to see this. We got the check $230. 00 nothing was taken off the bill. It would’ve been nice had dessert and offered to us as a comp. I was very disappointed.

Two of us had whitefish for lunch, and we each had a bowl of soup. Mine, lobster bisque, was far from the best lobster bisque I have ever had. Quite tomato-y and with an acidic edge. Not at all what I want in a lobster bisque. I almost could not taste the lobster. My partner's clam chowder was tasty. The whitefish was nicely cooked and tasted very fresh. We each had a glass of beer with dinner and a cup of coffee after dinner. We shared one serving of coconut cake, which was very tasty. However, I have had comparable meals in other restaurants in the Detroit area and Ann Arbor for far less than the $101+ dollars we spent. The service was good and attentive, but also not better than what we have experienced in other, less pricey, restaurants. The view of the riverfront was lovely but not $100 lovely.

We had a wonderful time at Joe Muer. From the valet and coat check to our wait staff and bussers, we were met with warm smiles and that extra special something. The cocktails were deliciously strong. Our appetizers were delicious as well as the lobster bisque. Our meals were so tantalizing, that we were sharing!! We ended with creme brulee. My parents said it was one of the best meals they've had.
Thank you!
