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!

Very pleasant restaurant but a bit pricey; really worth it though, no complaints at all. I don't think it was planned, but my filet was in the shape of lower Michigan (to me) 😁

I was born and raised in Ann Arbor and this is the first time I've dined in a Knight's and it was great! I was on a first date which I thought it was a great pick - my date agreed. Meredith, our server, was attentive and simply fantastic.

Had dinner on the patio with friends. While waiting for a table to open up we enjoyed a cocktail at the bar. Our bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly. Once seated our server was prompt and we received our appetizers and cocktails within minutes even though we were a larger group. Our dinners were all delicious! Knight’s continues to be my favorite spot in Ann Arbor!

My Wife and I went to Knight’s downtown for our six year anniversary. Just a wonderful experience all the way around the appetizers were wonderful. My wife and I both had the specials. My wife’s grilled salmon with pesto was incredible. The steak LeBlanc was the best tasting steak I’ve ever had. Will be going back soon

I sure wish I could remember our servers name because he was all over it, as perfect as you could ever ask for. The food was excellent too, and it came out of the kitchen promptly and by the time our drinks were getting close to empty, our service as asking if we wanted another one. I couldn't say better things and can't wait to go back next time in A2!

Knights always delivers on their great drinks. However in the food department - not always so good. I had a Mahi Fish Tacos - very uninspiring - both in flavor and presentation. They had some sort of weird sauce. The usual condiments (slaw) for example - were not in the tacos. I had hoped for better - being a fish taco fan. They are known for their steaks....and maybe that is why they are so popular (of course the drinks)_!

Seated promptly. Had early dinner so wasn’t too hungry. Had the Caesar salad with fried chicken. The salad was tasty. Breading on chicken was perfect. The chicken itself not as juicy or flavorful. Good portion. Dining party had lobster ceviche (good), hamburger (good but a little overlooked) and kale salad and salmon burger.

Service was attentive. The environment was modern casual. Good for a simple night out

We visit Knight's often for special occasions or for a nice lunch date. We have had amazing servers, this trip the server was a little less than we had come to expect. Food was amazing, try the desserts! Servings are generous enough to share.

My husband and I each had the prime rib. It was a very generous cut of meat at 12oz. In terms of taste and texture: it was nice. Not great, but satisfying. The side salad with the house made ranch dressing was just as it should be. Fresh and delicious. But what really put the dinner into the "very good" category was the dessert. We shared a layered chocolate mouse. I don't know if it was made in-house, but if it was: kudos to the pastry chef!

I have dined at the Liberty Street Knight's many times, and while I feel it does a good job on its entrees and drinks, its ambiance could be better. Several times we have been seated towards the rear, and the high-pitched whistling noise is really obnoxious, and the vibrations from the floor are also intrusive. Maybe it's a problem with the building, but it definitely takes away from an enjoyable dinner.
