    I have already recommended your restaurant to several of our friends. We decided to choose your place for Brian's birthday celebration because you served oyster rockerfella which is his favorite appetizer. You did not let us down. Thank you for making his day special and to the waitresses who were super kind and so professional.

    My only criticism would be that the seafood tower was a little bit hard to eat. The big crab legs and they weren’t split and we had to ask for something to crack them open.

    Celebrating a birthday, which was indicated when making reservation. Service was extremely slow, 30 min before our drinks were brought out. Waitress never checked in, food came & I had to ask for bread, another drink…everything we needed right then in case we didn’t see her again. Had scallops & fish & chips. The fish & chips was basic, nothing wrong with it, but nothing great. Scallops were cooked in something so salty that I couldn’t finish them, and there were only 4 medium scallops so it wasn’t a lot to finish. Drinks were also really not flavorful…disappointing. There were only two of us, and I had hoped it would be much better.

    Excellent food and our server Jamie was great. The preparation of the food was wonderful and serve hot. It was difficult to chose from all the wonderful choices on the menu. We could not have had a better celebration of our anniversary. Some of the low reviews almost caused us to cancel our reservation, and I am glad we didn't. It seems that the restaurant is under newer ownership and I suspect the poor reviews were from the past.

    AWESOME! My wife and I came to Detroit Fish House because we love seafood and wanted to try something new. We live in Berkley so it was a little bit of a drive, but we are so happy we went because we were blown away by DFH. Our drinks were great, especially the smoked peach old fashioned. Our oysters were perfect and the scallops and steam pot were absolutely amazing. Our server Jamie was knowledgeable and personable. The atmosphere was quaint and romantic (to us). The value was perfect and we can't wait to go back. Also they have $1 oysters during happy hour. If you love seafood, you absolutely must check out Detroit Fish House.

    First time here- terrible experience. To say our service was bad is an understatement. While our server was pleasant, she was inexperienced, non communicative, inefficient and slow. We waited 15 minutes for the server to take our drink order and another 20 minutes to get our drink order, when all we ordered was wine and our appetizers had already come out. This was made more frustrating by the fact that there were 3 servers waiting tables on the patio and only 6 tables- there were also multiple food runners. After being there for almost two hours, we still did not have our entrees. So we asked for them to go- even though the food should have been ready at that point, we had to wait another 20 minutes to get the food to go. While waiting for the food to go, we had to ask for the bill. Our server brought it out and didn’t return to grab it, but a manager did and although he easily could have ran the bill, he didn’t and we waited another 15 minutes AFTER receiving our food to go, to get our copy to sign. We were even more disappointed when we opened the to go order- I had ordered the special and they just didn’t give me the vegetable that came with it. The portion sizes were also underwhelming. We paid over $200 with tip and feel completely robbed of an experience. The patio is nice though and the oysters were good. I’m very sad about our experience because I’d love to return, but at this point, will not.

    It was our first visit. We had a wonderful and knowledgeable waiter named Matthew who took very good care of us. The food was excellent. Just a small thing, but I did not have or notice any anchovies on our Caesar salad. I asked our waiter about it and he brought us out a couple of them to try and I know there weren’t any in my salad. There was a large family with small children next to us that were screaming quite loudly and the noise level was already loud so that was a minus. Overall it was a good time and we will go back.

    This place never disappoints me. We came here for our anniversary, and they offered us complimentary glasses of champagne. That was a first time for that. I am very happy and impressed they gave us that instead of a cookie dessert. We always get fresh oysters which go down way too easily. The south African lobster tail was buttery and tender. And the swordfish was delicious. I've always had great servers here as well. April and Jenny both helped us out and were amazing at their jobs. Keep up the great work. And please continue the complimentary champagne for anniversaries.

    The place itself (both indoors and out) is very clean and modern. The food was beautifully presented and very delicious. The wait staff was not only pleasant and helpful, but presented us with a fabulous dessert and card to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. All went very welll, even the packaging of our leftovers which were delicious even 2 days later!

    My husband got the BBQ pork chops, which were featured. They were unbelievably tough and dry. For the price paid, someone should have caught that before they were brought to our table. He didn't send them back because we were there for our son's birthday and didn't want to dampen it. The cajun shrimp was really good. But I got 6 beautiful shrimp, a handful of french fries, and a tiny cup of coleslaw for 29 dollars? If this restaurant is going to be high priced, then the meals should reflect that as well. Good drink prices though! Very reasonable! The server, Bobby, was amazing, attentive and awesome!

    Staff was very friendly and prompt. Food was better than average by far. We had the calamari, lobster bisque, scollops, and white fish. All which had a ton of flavor. Drinks were decent at best. I don’t know if it was the fact we had a later dinner reservations. The place was very empty for a Saturday night around 9pm. I did read a few negative reviews and it almost scared me off from trying this place out. I am sure glad we went and tried it out. Now to the people saying the food was bland. Sorry but we didn’t have that experience at all. Then again, we don’t act like we should be judges on Top Chef. Now to the people crying about the prices, sorry! We didn’t see that being an issue either. We thought they were reasonable by far.
