I have traveled to many countries and eaten at many different restaurants and this was one of the top places I have ever eaten in my life! It is hard to find such amazingly flavourful food made with such fresh ingredients and that is at such a great price. Everything from the biscuits with butter to the hand squeezed lemonade to the banana pudding cheesecake was delicious. The shrimp scampi was some of the best shrimp I have ever eaten, fresh, juicy and had an amazing lemon butter sauce that made you feel like you were on the East Coast. This shrimp literally brought tears to the eyes of the group I was with. The mac and cheese was super flavourful and the fried chicken reminded me of my grandma's. We were such a large group we were such a large group so we were able to taste most of the cheesecakes and desserts which were all spectacular but especially the apple crisp cheesecake, key lime pie cheesecake and the banana pudding cheesecake. The meal was so great we went back two days later and plan on going back the next time we are in town. This is definitely a place not to miss when one is in Detroit!

***A REAL REVIEW***Great spot to pick up and goThis place overall is pretty good. I say this because I have run into some issues, but judging by surrounding circumstances I could understand why those situations happened the way they did. The food is great, it is always fresh. It is a little on the high price end but it is worth it. I love the Grilled Chicken pitas and they are generous with the chicken ;) which is a winner for me. I prefer to pick up and go. I have eaten inside and it is too stuffy- Also the waitresses are not very approachable or friendly, you would think that in a business they would stress that the waitresses be friendly after all they are the ones customers most interacted with.Parking Lot is so hard to get around, it is so tiny. They now accept debit/credit card which they didn't before, so that is great. I tell ya I never carry cash, but this is one place I always remembered to have cash on hand- back when they did not accept debit/credit card. The not so great dining in, and small parking lot- does not discourage me from going and picking up food from here and enjoying it!
Most food is made from scratch right there... beer, bread, ice cream, cheese. Pretty cool, right? But wait, they also grow many of their herbs and vegetables on the roof of the restaurant. Yes the food is unusual, this is why most people go out to eat. And I think they hang their proverbial hat on the quirky staff. If they rub you the wrong way, ask to speak with a manager. The manager Stephen is particularly helpful, friendly, witty... sounds like I may have a crush! I think taking in the atmosphere and the vibe right off the bat will really help your dining experience.

Would not let our big group sit together even though the table next to us was not used half the time we were there. Half the party was on other side of dining room. Waiter took forever between getting waters and chips then tried to just take drink order when we were ready to order food as well. Fajitas seems like stew meat with tons of tomatoes but barely any onions. Waiter was lucky to get 20% tip because we didn't want to wait for change.

I had some Seafood Gumbo from Fishbones and it was absolutely delicious! I was having trouble remembering which gumbo I had so a young lady named Rebbeca let me sample one so I could find out which one I wanted. She was also very friendly and very nice and it was a delight to order from her. Fishbones has just earned a regular thanks to their amazing customer service and exquisite food
I have purchased the potatoes for many years and have always been satisfied, today I choose the shrimp potato only to find that the shrimp were not deveined when calling to express my displeasure I received the run around. this is an item i will NEVER purchase again until they use deveined shrimp. Or try Fat Boyz or Spudheads. Potato place get it together you do have competition!
In all honestly we've never been blown away with the food they prepared for us any time we've come here. The manager is awesome and food is always excellent. We come downtown specifically to eat here and play the casino. A++++++place to eat and enjoy the live entertainment.
Excellent food, best of all the little chinese take outs along east jefferson. You have to place order thru bullet proof glass, so calling in advance is more convenient. They prepare all the foods fresh per order so it is always fresh. Also big portions!!
