Steakhouse
Knight’s Downtown is the newest addition to the Knight family restaurants.

Located at the corner of Liberty and Maynard streets, Knight's is the perfect place to grab a delicious meal and a strong drink!

Our philosophy is to provide our customers with unbelievable food, exceptional service and great drinks all at a great value. We only use the highest quality products available and our steaks and other offerings are cut fresh everyday by our butchers at Knight’s Market. As a traditional steakhouse, our steaks, prime rib, chicken, burgers and seafood are a main focus of our menu. However, we are equally proud of our other menu choices, including an assortment of salads, sandwiches, and pastas. We famously pour the strongest drink in town! We also offer a wide selection of draft and bottled beers, and an extensive wine list.

Each day we strive to improve our customers’ experience by providing quality food, drinks and service at an affordable price!

Had a great brunch with our son who is attending U-M. Knights was recommended to us as an alternative to waiting in line at other busy brunch spots. The Chef's Sunday specials were wonderful and we all really enjoyed our meals. Server was super nice and friendly. Food was timely, fresh, portions generous and very tasty! Will definitely go back.

My first time, but my wife had been before. This was her choice for her birthday dinner. We enjoyed the steaks we had. Best ever. Our filets had no grissle or fat. Will definitely be back. Also had a parking garage across the street.

Our experience at Knight's was so-so.
Yes, we were seated promptly in an area that was a quiet as there was in the restaurant, and our waitress approached as soon as we sat down. A good start. The food was okay -- Salmon sandwich was good, the lobster tails were so small that it was hard to get the actual tail piece out, and the meat portion was too small. We should have been warned that though the lobster tails appetizer was identified in the menu as as "2", because they were ordered as a main course, we should have been warned that the two were incredibly small. Ou.r waitress was pleasant

Excellent service! We haven't had a server that enthusiastic and on top of things in a while. We were seated right next to the server bar though so that wasn't the best seat in the house and the team and our table all needed more room. They need to get rid of that table 😒.

We both had the roast beef, which is offered only on Thursday through Sunday. The old Knight's used to serve prime beef, but both Knight's restaurants have downgraded the beef. The cut was generous and good , but not great as it used to be. We now go to Costco for prime beef and cook it ourselves.

Nice atmosphere and the outdoor seating is a plus. Food is very average. The baked potato was not quite baked all the way through. The steak was cooked as I ordered it but the flavor was lacking. If I had paid less for it I would have felt better-it was not special. I expected an extraordinary taste from the reputation of Knight's.

Knights has been a tradition in our family since my son first started his college search. We stumbled upon this restaurant on our very first visit to Ann Arbor 2 years ago, and now when we return, or a new family comes to visit Ann Arbor, we always eat at Knights. The friendliness of the staff, the knowledge of Gluten Free options and the location for us, given that it is close to campus, makes it a "must stop" on our yearly drop off of our son at the University of Michigan.

The fried Brussels sprouts were amazing! A great sweet-savory sauce! The burgers were done to perfection, with the buns being slightly greasy on the outside (but probably from the juiciness of the burger). Overall, great!!

Decent food. Had a hair in my salad and when I addressed it with the waiter he told me know exactly who’s hair it was (customers don’t want to hear this, they just want a new salad and take it off the bill). Waiter brought me a new salad but didn’t compensate for it on the bill . Went for a wedding anniversary dinner, disappointed overall. Would not recommend for special occasion.

I have never had a bad meal or drink at this perfectly-situated downtown location. Parking is very easy since it's not on Main St. itself (less than 5 minutes' walk) and it's near two of the most famous movie theaters in Ann Arbor.

Food average at best. I was with three other people and we all felt that way. Food was not hot and appeared that it was quickly thrown onto the plate. I ordered a cocktail and when they ran out of one ingredient they substituted another without telling me. Only found out when I mentioned that the drink didn’t taste right. Very disappointing and will not be returning
