    My family and I had an early meal at the brass rail the morning of the Thanksgiving day parade, and a home Detroit Lions football game. The hostess honored our OpenTable reservation, even though we were about 20 minutes early. The restaurant was busy but the tables were being turned over at a good rate. The service was excellent and the food was good. The only negative was the music was a smidge, loud at certain points, but other than that, we really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely come back.

    Our big group made a reservation, which the place was very crowded so we were glad we did. The food was good so long as you expect bar style food. The pizzas are the best items on the menu. This bar style restaurant rocked the essentials- plastic cups, pizzas served on the oven tray, fast moving wait staff, and a loud, LOUD, live DJ. Other reviews mentioned the noise level and I assumed they were overreactions…indeed beware of the nightclub level music! (upward of 105dB)

    Ladies night out for a concert on October 10th 2022. Service was amazing, food was delish and reasonably priced. My friend is a pizza snob and we’re planning a couples night. It has her seal of approval!!! Can’t wait to visit again.

    We made reservations was there on time and they gave our seats away because they prior reservation by other people wasn’t showing up so they just started seating people where ever it was our first time there and the only reason I would go back is because the food was good. The waitress was terrible wasn’t aware of what was going on .

    The music was so loud I had to scream the name for my reservation to the hostess. Thankfully there was a table available outside, in front of a dumpster, unfortunately. Server was very nice but service was slow. Ordered chardonnay, waited 15 mins to be told they were out, ordered another type of wine and waited 15 mins to be told they were out of that one too. Food took almost an hour to come out and was just ok. I will not be going back and would not recommend this restaurant.

    Google says best bar for watching football. Went there and they couldn’t play the Thursday night game. They were short staffed and we waited 45 minutes for someone to get us a drink. Waited another 1/2 hour for the drinks to come. Terrible experience

    Went here before a concert at LCA with a 5pm dinner reservation. First, the music was so loud you could barely speak to the person next to you let alone the other members of your dining party. The hostess was curt and unfriendly; the waitress was better but clearly managing more tables than was possible. The pizza was better than expected and the sandwiches were good. They did get our party of 7 in and out in an hour, so that was good.

    I understand that they get busy on event nights, but we came after the major crowds and it wasn't full. Beers took forever to arrive (after appetizers) when the bar was 10 feet away and bartenders were not slammed. The pizza crust was like a cracker - not risen properly. Waitress left and wasn't seen for 15 minutes at a time - leaving no silver ware or plates. Avoid unless you have no other options or there is no crowd.

    Really an embarrassment to the word service and even more of an embarrassment to the word “pizza”…. You really cannot make this stuff up… The time we had to wait for the server to arrive at our table was bad… Then to add to that they could not find any “wine” for our guest…(can’t make this stuff up)…. Half our meals were so late coming to the table which was well after the other half of us finished eating the kitchen staff came out to apologize… But then we still had to wait longer for the last meals to arrive… Once again you can’t make this stuff up… At one .2 of the ladies from our table went over to ask our server what is going on with the meal and she simply walked away… Is this a dream or should I say nightmare??? This was our first visit to Detroit and if this is some of the best they offer right across from the sports stadiums than this is an embarrassment to the city!!!

    We arrived for our reservations before a Saturday afternoon tigers game to find out that they changed their menu to a brunch menu from 11am-3:30pm which wasn’t noted anywhere on the website. Nobody in the party was feeling like breakfast at noon on Saturday and we most definitely would have chosen a different establishment had we known. The menu change didn’t make much sense as the menu was more complex and difficult for the kitchen compared to maybe a limited lunch menu of say burgers, pizza, wings and wraps. Not a very smart business decision imo.
