Never again. Wife bought tiger tix and buffet package. Ordered two drinks for total of $12. Bill was $23. Waiter hand wrote $10 gratuity for 'buffet service'??? I said 'why are you including gratuity for buffet? I got my own food. You gave us the wrong drinks, never came back to ask about more drinks, and now you are adding tip for service you didn't provide?' Watched two other tables argue with their waiter about the same thing. Then shuttle service was 45 minutes late after game...showed up ONLY after we called twice.

I went to Mario's for the first time Saturday. Our waiter, Shannen, was excellent. The entertainment was great. Ambiance and food were also decent. My first problem of the evening was with the bartender. She was downright rude. After waiting for 5 minutes (at an empty bar, with her walking back and forth by me) I simply asked for a pina colada. She slammed her purse (which she had been rummaging through) on the bar and said ""SURE CAN I GET YOU ANYTHING ELSE?"" I've never been yelled at like that before. The second problem, a cockroach in the bathroom, was almost less upsetting than the snotty, shouting bartender. I was with a party of 12 and none of us will ever go back.
My husband and I happen to love it. It's ""Old School Detroit."" The waiters are extremely polite. I love that you order your entree, then the food starts showing up... You're served antipasto when you sit down. Then the soup (and the minestrone is delicious), salad and pasta start showing up. I always end up taking home most of my entree... you just can't eat all of that food. Maybe some day I'll be able to save room for the spumoni! The list of what I do like is way too long, so I'll just list what I don't like... Oh.. Nothing!
