About the restaurant
an intimate 48-seat neighborhood restaurant in royal oak, michigan. we strive to be thoughtful about the food we plate, atmosphere we create, & energy we spread.

our goal at beppé is simple: to be intentional about the food & drink we serve, while fostering a welcoming environment.

whether you love beppé for our house-made pasta, to share with those you love plates, summer patio, thoughtfully curated cocktails, or a quality bottle of wine, we're here to be your spot & can't wait for you to keep coming back.

as a smaller establishment, we feel obligated to accommodate and serve all customers who want to dine with us in a timely manner. with that said, we do have policies limiting length of reservations. groups of 2-3 are allowed 90 minutes. groups 4+ are allowed 120 minutes. we ask that this policy is taken into consideration before choosing to dine with us.

bar seating is first come first serve.

we do not offer separate checks for groups of 5+.

We had a good experience, my chicken sandwich was not as good as past visits and I got stuck in the parking garage because all the doors were locked. However, this was not our normal experience and we will be back again for sure.

About the restaurant
Marcus Grill, 93 years and counting..... The origin of Marcus dates all the way back to 1929 when Charles Marcus invented the original burger in Detroit. In the city's spirit of innovation he built an enormous grill in the center of his diner, stamped burgers into a special shape, sautéed the all steak patty to fit in a hot dog bun. Marcus Grill is known not only for their burgers, but the bona fide Polish platters that are made fresh daily. Mastering homemade stuffed cabbage, city chicken, potato pancakes & pierogies where the dough is made in house & by hand. We offer special homemade soups, sauces and gravies that are worth coming back for. The experience of a warm welcome and personal touch has always been vital within the Marcus tradition. Time travel with us and enjoy the unforgettable secret recipe of the historical Marcus Burger as well as the authentic old world style Polish cuisine. Welcome to Marcus Grill.

Food was good. Service was slow considering there was nobody else in our section. Never refilled drinks. Colossal Sundae was over the top great.
