Visited this place because it was close to my hotel. The impression I got was that there was absolutely no management. One of the 3 waitresses was working her tale off. The other two just talked. The hotel I stayed at had no business recommending the place

Recommended to me by a coworker, so had to visit. Crowded bar area, but staff and bartender did a nice job with service. Great beer selection; 15-20 good local beers on tap. Had the Hamburger sliders, and they were simple but very good. Hope to get back sometime.

I would definitely choose Merriman Street Grill over Sporting News, but SportingNews has made some small changes recently and I would recommend stopping by if you are staying at the HolidayInn or SpringHill Suites. Holiday Inn is attached and SpringHill shares the same parking lot. Nice selection of local craft beers and the food prices aren't too crazy. I would... More

Staff were attentive, service was fat and friendly. I had a rib eye steak with mash and broccoli. It was delicious. Great selection of food and beers. Plenty of TV's to watch sport and news while dining although they are not intrusive if you were just going for a quiet meal. It's the perfect balance between restaurant and sports bar.

3rd visit and the same as the first. Great food, fast services and awesome atmosphere. Servicers are cool and very friendly. The beer was cold and big screen TVs showing a bowl game. What more could a guy want? Nice dinner with wife, a good steak, a cold beer and football on a Thursday night. Perfection.

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.
