I have wonderful memories of the original Joe Muer and the special mooments celebrated with family who are now gone. This was my first experience at this location and I was looking forward to celebrating my birthday there. We shared the steam mussels and the Shrimp Ilene. The shrimp was good but the mussels were just OK. I have had an outstanding steamed mussel dish from a restaurant in Gaylord, MI and I now compare all others to that. My main entre was the Dover Sole and it got cold fast. I had the potatoes with cheddar cheese and crab, very good but it too cooled off too fast. Our waiter. CJ was outstanding and very empathetic to our food getting cold. it certainty wasn't his fault as the area around was getting colder. I am unsure as to whether I wiil go back as with a tab of over $200 for the 2 of us I wanted of a feeling that this was the best meal I've had and it wasn't. Maybe I should have ordered different choices. It wasn't up to the memories I have of the original.

Our server was great, the food was delicious and filling. We sat next to a loud family that detracted a bit from the mood, but overall very nice time.

Worth every dollar. Great food and great service. My wife said it was the best Lobster Tail she has had.

Although we were slightly late for our reservation, we were seated immediately. Our waiter was excellent (I find it hard to think we could have a better waiter than we had on January 3 with other family members, but we did) and he could not have been more helpful in giving us menu suggestions and getting us served as we pressured him because we had a time constraint that afternoon. Joe Muer's will always be my "go to" restaurant when I am in the Detroit area. I have been fortunate to go occasionally since I was a child, and I am now able to take my children and grandchildren!

Joe Muers Detroit is always a magnificent dining experience. I've never been disappointed. Each dining experience is fun, the staff is attentive to my needs and this time my waiter (Chris) remembered me and expressed that it was a pleasure seeing me again. That's why I will keep returning, because the staff knows the menu and are very professional toward the patrons. I Love Joe Muers Seafood Restaurant Detroit!!

I gave 5-stars for the value even though this might be the most (or close) expensive restaurant in Detroit. Personally, I think it's still a great value (perhaps the best in Detroit). The atmosphere is great, lively and fun. The staff make you feel like you're the only customer. And the food is always amazing.

The restaurant was an excellent choice to celebrate an early Valentine's Day. It was very romantic with a river side view second to none. Our waitress was outstanding and very accommodating. I recommend Joe Muer's to everyone.

My family have become regulars at Joe Muer. The food is always incredible and you can't beat the view. The ambiance is great for all occasions. The service is always exceptional. Bob stands out among the wait staff and we love talking with Miguel who is always there to help. This is our go to place for dinner, desert and plenty of drinks.

Tumor came cold. Busboy continued to attempt to remove plates while still eating

Everything was outstanding once we were seated. The food was incredible! Our only suggestion is that the management find someway to accommodate a seat waiting area. No doubt there are space restraints. My wife and I were required to stand and wait outside the doors for our 4pm dinner reservation. The restaurant didn't open until 4pm. We were a little taken aback by it.

Everything considered, we will be back.

Joe Muers has been my favorite restaurant in Detroit for many years: I always look forward to going there. The food is excellent and the staff is wonderful. I was really surprised at the food
this time. I ordered a 7lb lobster ...It was my friend's birthday and I wanted to splurge for her..The lobster must have been frozen because there were raw pieces in it as we were eating it,
I pulled out several and put them on the side of the plate. I hoped my friend didn't get any of the bad pieces and it seemed she did not. The lobster bisque was not hot and tasted like tomato soup with some lobster pieces in it. We had potatoes and spinach which were ok but not the usual quality of a Joe Muers.
It was , all in all, not the usual Muers experience.

This is usually a perfect place for a business lunch, very rarely is it loud. Great place to discuss business. Food is always spot on and so is the service.

My husband and I were very pleased with our dining experience last night. The Seared Scallops were "melt in the mouth" and the Oysters Rockefeller were perfect. The carrot cake was very moist and rich and the creme brulee was heavenly. Our server, Joseph, was very efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. All in all, a great place for dining!
