We had a Mother’s Day brunch here. It was really nice. The donut holes were great as an appetizer. The mimosas were strong so one lasted the entire meal! I ordered the loaded tots. Very yummy and food came out hot. Everything looked good except the shrimp and grits. They need to fix that. The waitress was very informative and friendly.

Our lunch was very good as we chose a selection of appertizers and paired...with a few beers! The ribs, queso, and wings were delicious! The service was great as our server was checking-in on us as appropriately...not too often, not too absent! Great times- thanks!

I had a very nice dinner in the bar. Ordered the smoked chicken and apple salad which was delicious and satisfying. Each bite was unique in it's flavors and texture. Delish!

definitely enjoy the pulled pork and home made BBQ chips. Do not get the salmon burger, my friends was raw, and the salad is just plain lettuce.

Very nice atmosphere. They have outside, inside, and a heated tent for seating. The service was good. Got the pulled pork entree from “the pit” part of the menu, that tasted wonderful. The entree didn’t come with anything to put it on though as far as a bun or roll. I thought that was a little odd to just eat the pulled pork alone.

Food is ok but the service was only fair, at best. Our waitress was n a big hurry to take our order, which was served by someone else, and we couldn’t find her for the remainder of our meal. Not sure I will be in a hurry to return.

What a charming find for us in Grosse Pointe! My daughter attends University of Michigan. So we took a road trip to Detroit for the day and a swing through Grosse Pointe so I could see it for the first time. Charming community on the lake. We decided to eat in GP before returning to Ann Arbor and found Red Crown on OpenTable. It was wonderful! The pretzel bites appetizer with pimiento cheese spread was a-MAY-zing. They had wonderful bottled root beer for my 20yo daughter. White Claw in a can for me. Dinner was outstanding, the wait staff friendly and professional, and the vibe is darling and family friendly. Loved eating in a restored old-school filling station. Highly recommend Red Crown. Looking forward to a future visit to Grosse Pointe.

I reserved a table for 2 on the patio. When we arrived we were given a small table in the walkway. When I asked for a larger table I was told that the 4 seat tables are saved for larger groups despite there were several couples at the other tables. Then they sat a couple that came in after us with no reservation at one of the tables! The service was horrible. I would have to ask 2-3 times for something. The total was $40 for 2 burgers with bacon and 2 pops. I won't be goong there again, this is not my first visit receiving poor service.
