Small group for dinner in Windsor?

boagman Jan 19, 2009 09:10 PM

Hey, I'm in the Detroit area, and we're doing a 5-pin bowling night on Saturday, and need to know a place to eat in Windsor for around 12 people (give or take a couple) that isn't too pricey but doesn't have to be ultra-fancy, either. I'd like to avoid Asian simply because one of the primaries is kind of problematic about most Asian food (she's a meat-and-taters type), and it's often not worth the hassle.

Tunnel Bar-B-Q has already been suggested. Any other good ideas? Thanks in advance.

      Try Kildare House on Wyandotte St. E. Good Scottish pub with sandwiches, fish and chips, haggis if you want to go for it. Beer, large whiskey selection. Not all booths--several large tables available as I recall. There may be live music on Saturday night, but it would be easy to get away from it--or to hear it if that was what you wanted to do.

        Lots of good options on Erie ... beware of waiters at Spago
        that do not write down orders. Been there 3X and each time
        my order was screwed-up. Otherwise; the kitchen at both
        Spago's is top-notch.

          Spago was really good but I think it has different owners now, I was not happy my last visit there. It used to be a family operation w/ Mama cooking.
