I ordered a Caesar salad and it was inedible. The lettuce was old, the dressing was horrible and a bared no resemblance to Caesar dressing. I asked what kind of wine they had, the waitress had no idea. She came back with the answer of, "red or white". I also had a bowl of soup which was decent. The atmosphere... More

Walked here from my hotel the evening before my flight out of DTW the next morning and was underwhelmed for the most part. First, if you are painting the bar area and doing renovations, maybe shut down for the day or two it'd take to complete the work... The entire bar was covered with "Wet Paint" signs - including the... More

We went to the restaurant nearest our hotel and this proved to be a good place to have a decent meal.

When you travel for business it makes life much easier to have something like this attached to your airport hotel. I'm told it is turning into a steak place.

Decent place. Good size with a lot of tables. Not a large menu but it had your average bar food. Also served breakfast and again not a large menu but that is expected at a hotel. Bar area got crowded at night.

WE always go there when we are flying out in the morning. However be prepared to have several choices of beer not aviable. The food is great but not having the full selection of beer on tap is a little disappointing. Not sure why this happens but it put the waitress in an odd position

For what must would call a hotel bar or restaurant the food and atmosphere was great for the business meeting I was having. The wait staff realized it was a business meeting and did not hover over us asking us questions until we were ready to order.

We stayed at the Springhill Suites across the parking lot. It was great it was so close, but that was the only perk. The service was ok seeing as they had many servers standing around. The food was average. The atmosphere was confusing. They list themselves as an "up-scale bar", but the only thing upscale was maybe the lighting and... More

Had a good meal at the restaurant. I had the apple walnut salad with salmon on top. The salmon was a little "fishy," but it the salad was otherwise very good. Prices were very reasonable. Lots of big screen TVs.

Thank Fred S
