Steakhouse
The Caucus Club, located in the Penobscot Building, is an historic, stylish art deco masterpiece featuring two distinct dining spaces, historic bar and live Jazz. The front entrance leads guests to the elegant front dining room with the stage being the focal point. The back entrance leads to the dark and moody back room and bar with space for mingling, cocktails and dining. Adjacent to the bar entrance is the Caucus Club Kitchen, fully viewable from the hallway of the Penobscot building.

The menu centers around the in-house dry-aging room, yielding Prime Steaks and Chops expertly cut by owner/butcher George Sboukis. The balance of the menu features seafood and eclectic dishes that change with the seasons. Lunch has its own unique offerings, and the Bar offers distinct offerings for Happy Hour. An extensive wine list is housed in a state of the art cellar with private lockers.

Dress code is business casual at a minimum, and is strictly enforced. Please dress accordingly

Everything was almost perfect. Only the ribs was over cooked. I wish we could have them replaced. If that could happen then it would be perfect and we'll bring back all of our friends.

Our party had an outstanding dining experience! Filets and ribeyes tasted great and cooked to our liking. If you visit, you MUST have the lobster bisque - excellent! Allan was an exceptional server and made our evening enjoyable!

For $75 the steak was not worth it. The Mac and cheese side as well as the Brussels sprouts side, both were very bland and underwhelming.

Awesome wait staff.. i ordered a lemon drop and it was horrible … i ordered Kansas City medium well and it was medium rare. Sides were good. I got full off of bread and water. Definitely too expensive for quality of food.

Our arrival at Caucus Club for a reservation was the absolute most rude experience I have ever experienced. The hostess tried to turn my boyfriend and I away because of the dress code and we were both dressed up. When we asked to speak to the Manager he was extremely polite and had us seated. What upset me the most was looking around at how dressed down others were in plain t-shirts and we were the ones dressed up that they tried to turn away.

Wrong drink order but waiter got another one. No bread basket. Said we are getting one and never did. Not enough attention to our table. Had to ask for a box. Felt like we were not treated like the other tables.

Every part of our meal and time here was incredible - the only thing that made the food even more incredible than it was on its own, was the staff there. Our waiter was phenomenal as was the other staff that would come check on us from time to time. They truly go above and beyond. The live music was wonderful as well. Truly an experience to come here and will be back much more!

Food was just outstanding. We thought we were taking a risk on the creamed corn, how would such an old fashioned dish with a questionable name be? In a word "incredible"! We learned a new term as well, to "Pittsburgh" a steak. Means preparing the steak with a crispy exterior. It works!

Our server, Chris, was supremely knowledgeable, friendly and offered an interesting history of the place.

We visited for our 25 wedding anniversary and could not be happier with the choice.

West coast oysters were poorly shucked and FULL of shell, everyone of the 1/2 dozen. The scallops were ok, not outstanding, needed more spice, pizaz. The chocolate cake, boring.

We decided to make reservations at caucus club for just a nice night out. Andrew was fantastic and was very knowledgeable about the menu and helpful in making decisions. We will definitely be back! I ordered a margarita and the aged ribeye and both were really good we took the rest home and had enough food for a second meal.

I requested high chair seating, I did not get that. The steak I order was great quality, but I requested medium rare (it was medium well). I requested onions and mushrooms on the steak (did not get it). I'm not one to send steaks back when it isn't cooked right, it's a waste on time and food. If do expect to at least have the steak cooked the way I ordered if I'm paying $65.00 for it.

We were there for our anniversary and was promised a lovely corner booth in the back and when we arrived for our anniversary dinner we were told some guests are taking longer to dine in the booth promised and would be a few mins longer past our reservation time so we waited! Minutes later we are told our table is ready and escorted to a small table furthest in the back of the restaurant and when I asked why we didn’t get the corner booth as promised I was told sorry guests still dining. Ordered an almost $70 steak that was supposed to be medium well but came rare to medium rare still bleeding all over plate and when the waiter ran it back it was already sliced for us so when they put it under the broiler the steak came out over cooked well done and dry, while the sautéed onions and mushrooms were still borderline raw. Afterwards luckily the manager/owner came by and at least removed the steak off the bill but to make things worst, I was told they will provide us a nice dessert complimentary with a little message for our anniversary to go along with it but after they removed our steak off the bill I think that was enough because we were just given the bill and never even offered a dessert not even one to pay for! Honestly it was embarrassing as I was trying to impress my wife on our 17th year anniversary and chose to dine here because was referred to by a good friend at dine drink Detroit and I would probably never give it another chance due to the experience we had on what was supposed to be a special evening!
