The alligator bites were good when I last had them. How good a specialty appetizer is (for the area, at least) is not something for the basis of recommendation.
I would never wish for any business to close. Especially since it means people would be out of jobs and enough people like the place to keep them open all these years.
Good? Not especially good. It wasn't bad/horrible; but for me, that doesn't
exactly map to good.
Will I return? No. Unless there is a group outing/event ... and it just happens
to be there.
- Food nothing special
- Service was unknowledable & inattentive
- Ambviance - NOISY (Southfield loc)
I can spend less money elsewhere for better food, service & ambviance.
I assume this is about the Detroit area Fishbones restaurants.
To answer the original poster's question: no. I have no idea how the place(s) (both of them) is able to stay alive as long as it has. The food is just lousy. They must sell a *boatload* of alcohol in order to cover the fact that they couldn't cook good food at gunpoint.
It has been *years* since I've even set foot in either of them, and I anticipate that it will be many more years until I do. When they do finally close their doors, I won't be shedding any tears, except perhaps tears of joy. Not every restaurant closing is a bad thing.
