Food and service were great. The music was very loud and made it difficult to have conversation over dinner. We even asked if it could be turned down , but it never happened.

Strip steak I ordered was fatty and grisly. My wife’s skirt steak was cold. $47 for a strip steak is not cheap and should have been tender and not have an abundance of fat. Service was excellent. Bologna appetizer was excellent

Have been here a few times for late night drinks and their awesome burger but this was my first time for dinner. Went with family for a special night out and it did not disappoint! Everyone was impressed with the quality, range and overall deliciousness of the drinks and food. Best food in descending order: burger, skirt steak, short ribs, scallops, lamb kielbasa. Great desserts too! Can’t wait to come back!

After hearing good things about this restaurant I reserved a table for a friends birthday. I was disappointed with the service, the noise level was too high and the food wasn’t great. Overall very disappointed, I wouldn’t go back to this place for food, but if you like loud music the cocktails weren’t too bad.

I was a bit less than impressed with Grey Ghost. Had 7:30 reservation and wasn't seated until 7:55. Cocktails were great. Scene was cool. Dinner was ok. 2 of us ordered their dry aged New York strip which had a fairly steep price and was good, but not great. Very loud. Overall, not in a hurry to go back.

This was the first time at the Grey Ghost. I took my husband there before the Lady Ga Ga concert at the Little Caesars Arena. The ambiance was really nice (small quaint restaurant). The food was good ( the menu was smaller than expected though), but nonetheless very good choices. The specialty drinks were very good too. I had the Love Child drink. I would order this again for sure. The restaurant is in perfect walking distance to the arena. Very safe short walk which is a plus if you are planning a night out before a concert.

I can’t say enough about Grey Ghost. The food is always amazing and love how they change their menu to keeps things fresh and new. This staff is by far the best ever from the hostesses, waiters, bartenders, and owners. Professional but also very personable and friendly staff. I highly recommend Grey Ghost Detroit!!!

My opinion...one of the top 5 places to dine in Metro Detroit. Awesome service from bartender to waiter to general manager. Drinks are solid. Food is nothing short of superb. Location is everything positive going on in Detroit. Must put on your bucket list and return because these guys work very hard and it shows.

Four of us ate here recently before the Eagles concert. The food and service were top notch. Walleye, short ribs, burger, and pork chop were all delicious. Fun cocktails and a great Chardonnay rounded out the meal. Free street parking and less than 3 blocks from Little Caesars Arena make this the perfect spot before or after the show.

Everything was amazing! Prices were right with around $100 for an appetizer, 1 drink each and 2 entrees.
My only wish was that there was more of a selection for sides but the Brussels sprouts were amazing.
I had the skirt steak and it came with fried plantains on top. It was amazing!

Amazing food. Service was great. We had a reservation for 6 people, but then came early, with an extra person who was not staying long, which caused a lot of confusion. But they were super accommodating, even though we broke some ordering rules set by the chef. They were great! We were there for 4 or 5 hours. Ate almost everything on the menu. Everyone loved it.

The food offerings are too odd for us. We stared at the menu for 10 minutes then I finally picked something while my husband opted only for an appetizer. What we ordered was overall just ok. We did like the environment, and, we did like Sunday brunch when we had that a few months back.

Such an amazing place! Starting from the great ambience to the "oh-so good" cocktails before dinner. The food could not have been better, an explosion of flavors carefully crafted and presented. The portions were surprisingly big. The service is absolutely impeccable!!! This restaurant is a true gem, outstanding in every aspect.
