The Knight family began providing the Ann Arbor area with quality food products in 1952. 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. We offer a variety of lunch and dinner specials each day, many of which have become a weekly tradition for our amazing loyal customers who love their Pot Roast Wednesdays and Roasted Turkey Tuesdays. Knight's opened their second restaurant in Jackson, MI. in 2001. If requesting a specific table please call restaurant

American fare food that is sure to please. Good drinks are a plus too. Price for an evening out won’t disappoint you either. Cleanest men’s room in the state, no joke. Thats’ why they are so popular in Jackson.

The entree was wonderful. The on;y complaint is that the salad was not fresh- the lettuce had brown edges- unacceptable, especially for such a great restaurant. Needs more attention to detail whan preparing the salads.

Super kind waitstaff...we enjoyed our waitress very much. The hostess was also quite welcoming. Now for the not so fabulous......the food. The food was beyond disappointing. I had the crabcakes dinner. The cakes themselves were ok, but the vegetable medley was sad. The zucchini was not cooked or sauteed....it came out in GIANT chunks with barely warm green beans. Zero seasoning. Zero butter. Just boring and flavorless. While we are discussing flavorless, how about my "garlic" mashed potatoes......the garlic consisted of some garlic spice....not even real garlic cloves. No butter. No creaminess to the mashed potatoes. Nothing close to flavor. Needless to say, disappointment does not even begin to describe my meal. My BF had the Delmonico with bleu cheese on top. It was supposed to be med rare...it was actually between medium and med well... no pink. Completely covered in cheese. His baked potato was good, and his asparagus was prepared nicely with good flavor. You really cant screw up a baked potato tho.....so I'm not sure that's an actual win. We wanted to try a new place and have a good time out on a Saturday.....the dessert cant be bad right?? Wrong. Ewwww. We tried to "warm" rum raisin bread pudding.....the most disgusting thing I have ever eaten. I wanted to spit it out, but our server had already cleared our plates. It took me like 2 full minutes of chewing to work myself up to actually swallowing that crap. It was nasty. I tried to rinse my mouth with coffee to remove the foul taste. It was terrible. The whole experience, besides the friendly staff, was abysmal to say the least. Never.....EVER....going back

Our waitress was incredibly slow, in our 2 hour stay we only got one drink!
Would have liked more but she never came to check on us. We also had to find her for the bill. Thank God i had cash or it would have been another huge wait. We put a timer on her and tried to make a game out of it so it would be less annoying.

The food was fabulous. The service was a little slow at times but part of that is it's a place to take your time and have lots of conversations and time with your company. We just happened to be in a bit of a time crunch

Was disappointed in the entire evening! Probably was just an off night for me! It was a birthday dinner and it was not as fine dining as it used to be. Waitress seemed frazzled and not groomed to feel like we were at a nice dining restaurant. Food was a bit on cool side. Salad was not fresh! I will be back however

1st time visit.. Food was excellent. However, had to send 2 Prime Rib back because of being served cold. No issues getting the food heated. Meat on the ribs fell off the bone. Very pleased with seating,, making reservations and taste of food. Would go again the next time I am in town.

The only negative was that the greeter at first ignored our party as he was in a conversation with what appeared to be an acquaintance/customer. Didn't even say I'll be right with you, was a little rude to not acknowledge our party as we we standing mere inches from the check-in area. It isn't a deal breaker but wasn't a great start to our experience. We'll be back.

When we got to Knights they did not have our OpenTable reservation, however, they put us at the top of the list and we were seated within five minutes of arriving. The food was great as always! One of Jackson's best restaurants.

The only complaint, really more of a concern, we us ed Open Table for our reservation and they couldn't find us. However, because it was before the busy crowd we were able to get a table. I made the reservation for 6:30 at noon, then the basketball game looked like it would get over really early so I changed it the 6:00 around 4:00; so am surprised that our name was not on the reservation list. This happened last year too. We travel two-and-half hours to watch basketball and found this resteraunt last year by looking on TripAdvisor; I used Open Table to put in reservation that time also and had the same experience where our name did not come up. We were still able to be seated but they only had that one table open last year.

This was my first time at Knight's. I do not eat red meat or chicken so I didn't think there would be much on the menu for me. I was wrong. There were several seafood and non-meat choices for dinner. The food was exceptional, the service was great and the atmosphere was quiet, comfortable and elegant. I took my granddaughter to see the Nutcracker at the college so we choose a spot close to the campus. I was pleasantly surprise and will definitely return.

A classic steak house! Like stepping back in time when a relaxing meal and excellent service where the norm. We went on a Saturday night. Not as busy as expected (poor weather) but we did make reservations on a recommendation. Very good food and service. Highly recommended!

Wife and I ordered chicken marsala, french onion soup, and long island ice tea's. Chicken breasts were over cooked, dry and chewy, sauce was bland, vegetables were rubbery, french onion was pretty good. My water glass had lipstick on the rim, a lot of flies were swarming around the restaurant. Ambience was not the best, was hoping for a more romantic date night setting. Waitress at other tables seemed rude and annoyed, and talked very loud. Our waitress seemed good, which is why the 3 stars, that and our long island's were good.

We had high expectations for Knight's and was let down. We will not be returning. Way overpriced for what you get, neither the wife nor I finished our food and didn't ask for a box to take home.
