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 butchered on site. 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.

    We had Kay taking care of us and she was absolutely amazing, the menu and food were top notch and we very much enjoyed our evening including some live music. It has a bit of that old school Detroit vibe and we would definitely recommend for a nice night out.

    We were in town for the Thanksgiving Day football game and were so happy to be able to go to this wonderful restaurant on Thanksgiving evening. We had filet mignon, Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. All were delicious. Our server, Andrew, was especially wonderful. We had our four year old son with us and they were able to seat us away from the crowd where we could have a quiet peaceful meal. He put our order in right away so we could get our son home early. We mistakenly left our credit card and Andrew chased us outside to return it to us. Outstanding restaurant, delicious food and exceptional service.

    A truly elegant and timeless Detroit gem. The Caucus Club is heart and soul magnificent. As first timers dining with this historic establishment, my expectations were wildly exceeded. Thanksgiving Dinner was a 10/10 experience. My family of five had a night that we will always treasure. Dexter, thank you for sharing your genuine talents with us. Your ultra high-level ability to craft and curate such an exceptional dining journey really made it feel so special to have been your guests tonight. Ronald, thank you for kindly welcoming us at the front door right when we arrived. All of your help was so appreciated. You’re a true gentleman, with your warm smile and charming character, we are so glad to have met you. The entire staff throughout the Caucus Club are dedicated and delightful humans, and by the way, the food is literally the most delicious we have ever had. 100%, we will be back!

    This was our first time at Caucus Club. It was wonderful.. The food and service were outstanding. We had fish and steak and both were great. We also had an outstanding bottle of wine. RQ was our server and he was very attentive. Both Matt and Joe came to the table to make sure we were having a great experience. Our booth table wasn't quite ready when we arrived so Matt took us to the lovely bar. Again wonderful service. My only niggly concern was that the singer could have been at a lower volume. I highly recommend and will return often.

    A wonderful experience. Food was fantastic. Calamari, lobster bisque, butternut squash soup and the dry aged ribeye that we split, and still had leftovers. Our waiter was great. He did everything to make sure we had a wonderful experience. And the creme Brule was the best we ever had.

    I’ve been a huge fan of the Caucus club since their reopening. Food has always been worth its price and very flavorful. The staff has always been friendly, informative, and well mannered. That said, this time however, I cannot say those things about the food. The one thing that kept me coming back was the quality of the food. We ordered the tomahawk ribeye (something we always order here), it was very cold and too crunchy and the tuna tar tar looked as if it had been put together in a rush and was missing garnishments. Our visit was a 4:30 PM time slot, so the restaurant was almost empty. Not sure why the food was sub-par, but for the price, it was unacceptable. Please note that the staff during our visit, as it always has been, was perfect.

    We were sat as soon as we arrived for our reservation. Unfortunately our table was right next to the piano player, the volume on the microphone was so loud we spent the entire night having to talk loudly to be heard above it. Initially we were attentively taken care. The waiter made great suggestions for wine and the manager did the uncorking table side. Within minutes we had our starter delivered to our table but that’s when things went downhill. We had to all over six times to get any bread. After the appetizer was served we didn’t see our waiter for over an hour. Finally he appeared, telling us the kitchen was backed up. This was after over an hour of waiting without anyone checking on us. After an hour and half, our food was delivered at the same time we finally received bread. My $89 king crab was cold! The water took it back to the kitchen, they threw it on the grill and the manager delivered it back out. My husband’s filet looked huge (he ordered an 8 oz) and he specifically asked the waiter if it was the 8oz he ordered. The waiter assured him it was. While eating we noticed other tables being sat, getting their appetizers and their meals! Somehow the kitchen got back on track to deliver food in an appropriate time frame. Fast forward through the meal. The waiter checked on all tables around us and didn’t come back to our table until we called him over to get the bill and to go containers. When reviewing the bill we noticed we were charged for a 10oz filet we didn’t order. Flagged down the waiter again and his excuse was he was taking so many orders he got confused but he’d get it fixed. The only redeeming quality was the manager coming to our table and taking the time to hear our feedback and apologize for the poor service. All in all, the food was good but over priced for what you get. The service and the atmosphere poor. Do yourself a favor; if you want good food, good service, and pleasing atmosphere, go to London Chop House instead!

    We had a wonderful experience, if I had to have one thing that was noticeable, it was that when we arrived, it was still pretty early, and there was no background music playing before the piano players started, and it made it just kind of very quiet and awkward

    Our entire experience was very pleasant. The entire staff was attentive and very polite. The food was excellent. Our cocktails were not as good as the food but still tasty. We sat in the room that had a musician playing the piano. We were surprised that the live music did not interfere with our dinner conversation. The noise level was perfect and the music was nice. Our waiter had the valet pull our car up for us as we were finishing up dinner. The car was warmed up and waiting for us. It was a nice touch to finish up the evening. We will definitely be back!

    Service was disappointing. I left a request when I booked to bring out a surprise birthday dessert after dinner (since we were there for my SO birthday) and I also told the host when we arrived that it was a bday celebration and even made a comment to the waiter that it was my SO bday just to give him a reminder and they still didn’t bring anything out. For a restaurant that costs a couple about $400 you would expect better service than that. Most restaurants do this just from overhearing it’s someone’s birthday at the table. Also our waiter asked us for our valet ticket while we were eating and said it was to get our car warmed up for whenever we leave. I honestly couldn’t tell if it was a nice gesture or a way to speed things up since we were the last 2 couples left in the restaurant. He asked for our valet ticket before offering a dessert menu (which he didn’t offer later either) so I’m thinking staff wanted to head out a little early since it’s slow. I didn’t mind but it was only about 1020ish and the restaurant closed at 11 so it’s not like we were there past hours. We felt really rushed. Also, the food was maybe average, rare steaks came out when ordered medium well & no flavor…. it wasn’t a great experience today. They have to fix things back up. Used to be my favorite restaurant

    The apps were very good (meat balls & coconut shrimp) but the Chicago cut rib eye was tough & tasteless. We felt that the $5.00 charge for the zip sauce was ridiculous and the charge for the butter to go on top of the steak was also crazy. The server had an attitude right from the start which put a damper on our evening. We were celebrating a birthday and she certainly did nothing to make our evening special.

    Great restaurant for date night or special occasion. Food and service was good. I did notice it was more noise towards the back where the bar is. So I do recommend asking to be seated in the front to get more of a romantic vibe. "Strict" dress code but once we arrived there we noticed it didn't apply to all.
