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!

Knights js always a great experience.
I am convinced that they only make 1 of each dessert on their menu every day, because they’ve “just run out” practically every time I try to order something. Constantly building up and destroying my sweet tooth dreams loses them a star.

This was a Birthday dinner for my girlfriend. We have been to the original location several times and I was super excited to take her to the downtown location. The service was pretty good considering the time of day, the food was not on par with what we have become to love about Knights Steakhose. Her steak came to the table and I’ve seen meatballs larger then that.

We really enjoyed Knight's Steakhouse. It was a little pricey but the food was very good. Enjoyed the atmosphere. We were there during the college's spring break so some menu items were not available but we had plenty of items to choose from. Really enjoyed the Mahi Mahi special. Overall, a good meal and a nice evening.

There were 4 hostesses just standing there when we walk in and none of them offered to help with our coats. They just stared at us while we tried to hand them up on cheap wire hangers that could barely hold our heavy winter coats. They kept falling off.

I was very happy with our experience. If I had to list one thing that didn't go perfect its that I didn't get my birthday cake. I reserved in advance, and I even called to confirm that they knew it was my birthday, but for whatever reason, they didn't do the bday cake for me. Other than that, I was happy with it. The steaks were great and the drinks were strong!

Knight's Steakhouse is a fun, casual place to enjoy drinks and a good meal. The menu has a lot of options and prices are a decent value. We had the lobster dip, which is very flavorful, but could have used a lot more lobster for the price. My boyfriend had the bone-in ribeye and he really enjoyed it- but it a bit under-seasoned. I had the salmon special, which was also very good. We had the Knight and Day pie for dessert, which was delicious and had nice chocolate texture and flavor- unfortunately, they ran out of the choices we really wanted, which speaks to the popularity of their desserts.
Service was a bit inconsistent. We went for long stretches with no contact from our server, particularly in between salad and main course.

Excellent food. Service not what it should have been; I believe based on the fact I was not having alcohol although my husband was. The servers attitude completely changed when I ordered a non alcoholic beverage.

The steak was delicious! We were seated by the window with a wonderful view of downtown Ann Arbor and the Michigan Theater. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful choosing our wine selection, and even custom made our dessert for us to share. Could not have been more pleased with my experience, it was well worth the price of dinner!

We come two Knights a couple times a year to celebrate and we love it! Always get the same thing. Just a bit disappointed that we requested a booth and our favorite server and didn't have either, although the restaurant was super busy, even for a Saturday night.

We went to Knight's downtown before an event and I let our server, Alexandria know that we had to be finished by a certain time. She was excellent and had everything we ordered out in good time so we could enjoy it. She even reminded us 10 minutes before we had to leave! The food was very good and we will definitely go to Knight's before we go to shows in future.

Very busy on Valentine's Day dinner rush. Wait staff worked very hard to keep up. Friendly, townie-ish atmosphere. We ordered salads: one with steak, another with 4oz piece of salmon. Steak was perfect, salmon was very slightly overcooked. Scallop appetizer (nutty scallops) was perfect, although the accompanying nutty butter sauce was unexpectedly sweet--I should read the menu more closely. Staff were attentive but maybe a little overloaded.

We went to Knights for our anniversary dinner. As a couple that is a little short on cash, it was admittedly a little expensive, which most people know before sitting down. The server was great, she wished us happy anniversary as we sat down. All our food came relatively quick, and the server was very attentive. We never were sitting there hungry, (she brought us bread and our salads before too long of a wait.) The food itself was fantastic, I had the Hunter Steak while she had the Shrimp Scampi (a special for the night.) The management gave us a free dessert which was an exciting bonus! The basketball game came on as we were leaving and it started to get louder, so for those looking for a quieter time, avoid Michigan basketball games. We were seated at the window, and getting to look outside at the Michigan Theater was a great view. Overall, a fantastic dinner. Would do it again.

Our reservation/table was given to someone else who said they were us. No one knew were we dining there that evening so the hostess must have asked the other party if they were “my name”. Had to wait about ten minutes for a table. NBD. Both the calamari and the Chicken scallopini had an Asian flavor which is not my favorite. I should have stuck with a steak or a burger as this is a steakhouse and my family really enjoyed what they ordered.

Pros- fun ambiance with central bar and bar seating, plenty of flat screen TVs , and a post-grad crowd late 20s-50s, restrooms on 1st floor and basement, dark wood decor, seating is booths and tables, fun drink selection and beers on tap, plenty of hooks to hang jackets

Cons- drinks and food are on the pricey side by a few dollars, even with reservations our party waited an additional 30 min for a table on a Saturday night, the hostesses need to work on their coordination of tables, waitress wasn’t the friendliest, maybe she was just tired, she forgot our extra crackers and didn’t know the types of meat and cheeses in the charcuterie board.
