We went today to check out their Mexican offerings; I'm looking for delicious fish tacos in the Detroit downriver area. Michaels on the River has fresh fish and lists Mexican on their outdoor sign.

Have eaten here a few times, always good food. The stuffed shrimp and the pizzas are great. So are all the bar burger's. Kelly behind the bar is always checking to make sure our mugs are full.

We stop here quite frequently. The food is very well prepared. Sandwiches have all been tasty- place is small and dark but the food makes it worthwhile

Waitress Kim was great, very attentive to our needs. The steaks were good, the appetizer was tasty. The beer is cold, and keno is fun plus sports on TVs

Stopped by for lunch while at the park. Great burgers and a nice homey atmosphere. Reminds me of the taverns I used to go to many years ago. Brings back a lot of memories. Very nice people.

Upon entering, the very enclosed entrance wreaked of both marijuana and cigarette smoke. Telling I'd say. The bar is dim and typical... More
