Knights Downtown is one of my favorite places to dine before an event at the Michigan Theater or Hill Auditorium.
Great steaks! Attentive greeting and wait staff! Highly recommended.

As always, the food was very good and the service was wonderful. WAY too noisy to have a decent conversation, but if you can put up with that it's a great choice for dinner in the State St. area. It might be less crowded and noisy at 5 :00 pm, but by 6:00 pm it's nearly full and loud!

Knights Downtown Ann Arbor is a wonderful place to meet friends before or after a show at the Michigan Theater. The food and drinks are always great. It was really hopping, so the noise got a bit too loud, but still a quality experience.

Knights is always reliable and has the BEST meat in town (they do own the best butcher shop in town) It is right across the street from the Michigan Theater so it's the perfect place for either before or after the movies.

We always love Knight's restaurants. Both the downtown location and the one on Dexter Ave. Cocktails always generous. The calamari and shrimp app was yummy. It was a busy Friday night. Lively dining and our server was attentive. We had burgers and the fish and chips. Maybe the french fries could be a bit more crispy? Our table was split on the burger--one was done perfectly to order--the other too rare. It was sent back and the kitchen replaced with the right order. Salads were fresh and overall a delicious casual dinner.

Knight's is an old tradition in Ann Arbor, and its downtown restaurant, opened a few years ago, is a wonderful addition to the restaurant scene. Be sure to get reservations if you want a table, but there is also a substantial bar area.

Great food and drinks. We requested a booth but they were taken so we got a wonderful sunny window seat instead. Brussel sprouts were delicious. Drinks were strong and delicious. It was the second time I had the NY strip steak and it was overdone again so maybe err a notch rather than usual when you order steak. Love this place. It’s a favorite!

Went for a birthday celebration dinner. The Brussels sprouts appetizer is really yummy. I had the burger with bacon and egg (forgot the name) and it was soooo good. Truffle fries are good too.

I went to Knight's with my daughter and my nephew who studies at University of Michigan. We were on a college campus tour and were visiting Ann Arbor for a couple of days. The hotel staff recommended the restaurant to me and I'm very glad they did. We had an amazing meal, wonderful and attentive staff and the overall ambience of the restaurant was relaxing and inviting.

We had forgotten that it was the NCAA basketball championships that night which likely accounted for the majority of the noise & atmosphere. The food was great & the service was excellent!

Dined Easter evening, party of four. We were seated immediately. Food and service was good. Menu had a nice variety of meat and fish. It was a nice overall experience but would try another place next time since Ann Arbor has so many choices.

This restaurant has pleasant atmosphere. We ordered the Calamari & Popcorn shrimp appetizer and it sounded good on the menu, but the sauce was too sweet. The restaurant is famous for their steak so all of us either ordered the prime rib or steak and it was delicious. Service was good, but was really slow. It could just be our waitress.

We had the combination of an important basketball game and concert tickets and needed to find a place we could watch the game, eat dinner, avoid student mayhem, and then walk to Hill. Knight's was perfect. Almost everyone there was doing the same thing. Dinner was great and our server was on point.

Wanted something different on the birthday other than the Main Street venture options. It was good but not feeling any desire to immediately return. Prime rib was good but contained a lot of fat. I know it’s random and no control over what gets carved. Otherwise pleasant but not memorable

We often visit Knights when in Ann Arbor as our UM son enjoys their standard steak house menu. We waited a few minutes additional for a booth as the table seating can be crowded and a bit noisy. We enjoyed a delicious meal with attentive wait staff. Knights is consistent, good food. We will be back. I would give the ambiance more stars, but it is rather loud.

Super delicious, totally recommend the petite sirloin which is just enough meat (5 ounces) because it comes with salad and potato and veg! Very fun environment but always packed and loud so not great if you need to have a deep conversation.
