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!

We went to Knight's for my husband's birthday dinner and it was our first time there. We had a great experience. We were seated right away, service was attentive but not overbearing, and the food was great. Cocktails were seriously strong, in a good way. Will definitely be back.

We went for our 45th wedding anniversary. The restaurant was extremely busy but we got seated right away. Had reservations for 6:00pm. Our server was prompt and we placed drink orders and did not wait long. One thing about Knight’s... their bartender does not skimp on the spirits! We had the mussels for an appetizer which were excellent. I had the “ surf and turf” special the evening. The steak was cooked perfectly, however the lobster was only fair. My wife had a steak, and again it was perfect. Finished with dessert, bourbon pecan pie, again was excellent. All in all a very pleasurable evening.

We were seated right at our reservation time in a great booth. Service was a bit slow but the place was packed. Our group enjoyed filet, cowboy rib eye and fish and chips. We were too full for dessert, despite the tempting list. Prices are pretty high as is the noise level. Still one of our favorites in town.

Food was very good. Wife’s filet was a little overdone (asked for medium, was a little past). The meat and cheese tray was good, French onion soup very tasty! A little crowded and noisy for a “steakhouse” but a good experience. Wait staff very friendly.

A friend and I were visiting Ann Arbor for one night for the UNC-Michigan basketball game which had a late start time. We selected Knights for dinner and were not disappointed. Steaks were excellent and vegetable sides tasted fresh. Staff was friendly without being over-assertive. Downtown location is convenient. Great restaurant.

Great local family-owned restaurant. Nice well-rounded menu for a steakhouse and their halibut for instance, is among the best I’ve had anywhere at any price. The service is uniformly excellent, servers personable but professional, never pushing menu items like the latest appetizer. Good balance between the bar and restaurant crowd with a comfortable, easy and genuine feel about the place. Lots of regulars which really says a lot in a town with so many choices.

The staff at Knight’s was great as usual. We went to the game and afterwards as usual we brought our guests to Knight’s. They came with us a couple of years ago and were looking forward to it. Knight’s did not disappoint them !

We were brought over a complementary appetizer to thanks us for our business. Very appreciated!!

We will be back!!

We have been to Knight's Steakhouse twice now. Both times were pre concert dinners. Cindy Lauper and most recently Lindsey Buckingham, both at the Michigan Theatre. They do many things very well. Very good food, a nice selection of good craft beers, and excellent cocktails. The ambiance is a bit loud at times but that doesn't bother us because we enjoy people watching. I think the thing that sticks out most on both occasions is the wait staff. Each time they were very professional and very personable. We will definitely visit again, even if there isn't a concert to attend.

This was a great choice before a concert at the Michigan Theater directly across the street. Lively bar area and the food was very good. I chose the sirloin steak for $17 and it was a great value. Friend chose the steak tacos and said they were very good. Will definitely return!

LOVE everything about Knights! Excellent food and service. The only reason I took one star off is that it’s really crowded in the center area and loud like a cafeteria. Ask for a table or booth.

I don't go to Knight's often enough. Every time I go I think "Jeez, this is wonderful" and then, somehow, manage to forget to come back for months. I believe I'm going to resolve to come back much sooner.

Very busy so our server who was very nice just seemed stretched too thin. No bread as promised until we reminded them we never received it. Ordered prime rib rare and got medium well and not even warm. Probably last of an old roast. Told server and exchanged for a piping hot rare piece as originally ordered which was very good. Vegetables came 10minutes after second piece of prime rib delivered?! Had to flag down waiter for a glass of wine with dinner. My dining partner’s filet mignon was tough. Was fun to check it out but I have had more consistent experiences at other Ann Arbor steak houses.

This was the second time I tried this restaurant. Had a steak both times, after hearing rave reviews. The first time, my steak was over cooked and pretty flavorless. Thought it may be a fluke, so I gave it another go. No dice. Same experience as the first time.
My business associate had a chicken pasta dish. Her comments were that it was “really good,” but served just warm and was cold shortly after reaching the table.
On a positive side, they have a good beer selection, and our waitress was fantastic...wish I would have gotten her name. She was super friendly, fun, but not overwhelming. She did a great job.
