Mt. Chalet II (DTW)

So drove past this again for the 1,000th time (Woodward & 14 Mile) and realized after all the years spent in this area, I've never been -- and actually know
no one who's ever been. And yet, not so long ago, I read a pretty good review of the chow.

Any Motown hounds been recently? Interested in your take... thanks.

  1. I haven't been in about 6 years, though we live nearby. I went for the first time 6-8 years ago on the strength of a newspaper review of fine dining alongside burgers. Found decent food, decent to abrupt service (depending). We probably have not been back only because the last time there the interior was smoky (that will have changed) and the decent sandwiches were decent but not thrilling, and we started trying to eat in a more healthy way (fewer burger/fry outings, and husband grills and makes great burgers at home). Haven't been back to the Red Coat in 2-3 years for similar reasons.

    Not very recent experience but it's all I have...

    Edited to add - I drove past Mt Chalet for the last few years and saw a broken upstairs window panel. It was fixed recently but geez, wouldn't the broken pane have been noticeable? Maybe it wasn't drafty and pigeons weren't getting in...IDK.
