Celebrating 30 years of business in 2014, the original Steakhouse on Dexter Rd in Ann Arbor started the Knight’s restaurant legacy with our famously potent cocktails and signature dishes. Our philosophy is to provide customers with exceptional value, service, and food.

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.

Each day we strive to improve our customers’ experience by raising standards on our service and menu items. Knight’s is renowned for serving a mixed drink you would proudly serve to guests at your home and at an exceptional price. We also offer a wide selection of draft and bottled beers and an extensive wine list.

Since 1952, the Knight family’s philosophy has been to provide customers with good value, exceptional service, and excellent food and drinks.

Knight’s appears to be have maintained a reliably good status over past 20 years. Like the 2 Heart on tap. Fish and chips was solid and nice to be able to split & substitute. Cole slaw could be improved but overall 4/5 stars. Great Key Lime pie.

Our tenth anniversary. Moved from table to the bar.
Steak was more well done then expected and potato was over cooked so it was much drier then normally. Veggies were minimal. Love Knight’s but on this special nite it fell a little short of the mark.

Knight’s has been getting very creative with there daily specials. They also have a good seafood selection as well as the great standard menu. The wine selection is good too, not overwhelming, just right. Their meat is the best in town!

Local, highly recommended Steakhouse. Good food and outstanding service. A bit on the noisy side, but the restaurant was packed even for an early Tuesday evening dinner. Prime rib was perfect! Waiter was terrific!

our family has been dining at Knights for over 40 years and the food and service is always outstanding. We live in Florida now but always come in when in town. Wish we had a Knights in Florida. We miss the good food.

Patio dining is lovely in summer. Lots of flower boxes and trees. Some tables are under awnings to provide sun cover. Halibut, mussels, and seared scallops delish.

Food was delicious. Love the townie feel- really homey and comfortable. Not cheap but a fair value for the quality of food.

We came for my husbands birthday as he really enjoys this restaurant. He had his heart set on King crab legs. He was very disappointed that there were none to be had, but note only did they come back with a fabulous lobster, they also made it 'on the house'! Thank you for the great meal and outstanding customer service!

Knight's original steakhouse has been a family favorite for 25 years. We love the quality of their meats and the daily specials. They are also known for their generous drinks. We always recommend Knight's Steakhouse to new friends.

Solid weekday choice. We were seated on the patio as requested, thanks! Our server was pretty rushed and rather scattered, borrowing pepper from another table and taking it away when we were ‘done’ instead of just replacing our broken one.

I have always had great service and food at Knight’s for years. They have always fit my dining needs when I ask to have something different for my meal, no onions, dressing on the side or a half portion. Their meals have become very creative along with the standard fair of the classic menu and daily specials. My parents used to come here once a week and I can understand why! A classic fixture in Ann Arbor!

This was my first visit but it won't be my last. I've only ever heard good things about Knight's in terms of good steaks and fantastic drinks and, while I can't verify the drinks, my burger was perfectly cooked, juicy, flavorful, and a great size. I like that it was served with chips instead of fries as that would have been too much food. I had the Knight's burger cooked medium and it was absolutely delicious. I'm happy to say I booked our department staff lunch there next month and feel everyone is going to leave happy.

An eneffcient waitress destroyed the special anniversary for me and my wife. After taking our order we never saw our waitress until she brought the bill. Not even a drink refill. Never again.

The food was great and the drinks were awesome. I'm never disappointed when I come here. It's definitely a townie restaurant and will never be called trendy, but that's why we like it so much. It has onsite parking which is a plus in Ann Arbor, too. I can't recommend this place enough!
