Horrible staff, Rude Bouncers – I had the same situation as the person before me, went there with a big group of around 20, end of the night kept getting pushed by security guards, with my hands in my pockets trying to talk to the rude, short stocky bouncer, he pushed me then proceded to grab me by then neck and throw me out. I was blown away this happend to us, now seeing that it has happend to other people just goes to show what kind of establishment they are, and dont deserve a sigle customer, we had a great time there untill that all happend, but i will never go back and would not suggest it to anyone!
Horrible Experience – I actually wouldn't even give this 1 star if that was an option.
My sister and I took a party bus of 30 people to Mr B's to celebrate our birthdays last night. We had been there for almost 2 hours when all of a sudden the "security" staff came walking through telling us we were "in the way" and kept pushing us back with their flashlights. They threatened to kick out a couple of our friends a few times because we were blocking the aisle when in reality we had never moved and it was actually the security guys getting in the way. They ended up kicking out one of our friends and when I went up to the midget security guy (who obviously should lay off the roids) to explain that my friend had been standing there the whole time and was not in the way, he grabbed me and told me I was now being kicked out. I explained to him I was with a large group and needed to tell them I was leaving when he grabbed my hand and pushed me to the door. He told me that there was a line waiting to get in and that my group of 30 was welcome to leave. Apparently our business there wasn't good enough.
My brother came over and told Mr. Large Ego Security Guy to get his hands off of me and the next thing you know there are 3 security guards wrestling my brother to the door in a headlock. One larger security guy actually took my brother outside and was choking him while I was trying to deter the situation. While this was happening the so-called manager was yelling at all of my friends and had others escorted out in an unnecessary manner. This all would have been avoided if the original dwarf bouncer would've let me tell my friends I was leaving and had kept his hands off of me.
From my judgement on the other reviews it looks like Mr B's needs to reassess the security and management staff that they have chosen to represent their business. My friends and myself will NEVER return to this establishment.
Metro Detroit's Worst Dance Party – I've been to Mr. B's a few times, but was really put off with my last visit. As soon as I arrived, I was greeted by a scowling waitress. This girl was terrible- openly rolling her eyes at a drink order, and throwing orders into the middle of the table with no acknowledgment. Unimpressive.
Later into the night, a DJ was brought in, to play the absolute worst dance music in the world (e.g. Ice Ice Baby). Insane disco lights were turned on, tables moved, and the old person dance party commenced. Have you ever heard the Cha Cha Slide played outside of weddings? No? With good reason.
To top it all off, security and management are horrible. We ended up leaving with a 20% off coupon after our terrible experience, but it's just not worth the pain and heartache that is a night out at Mr. B's.
The People That 1 Starred This Are Nerds! – This is a great bar. The menu is much improved. The pizza is fantastic; the appetizer sampler is a great starter. The waitstaff is always very courteous and actually very fun. Drinks are reasonably priced; although they could stand to improve the happy hour specials, ie, BlackFinn. The people that 1 starred this probably got beat up in high school, and if I saw them at Mr. B's, I would steal their lunch money. All around, a great bar and a Royal Oak staple!
Why bother... – The days when this was the place to be in Royal Oak are long gone. They have knocked down one too many walls and have lost all the appeal that the original place had-like a friendly place to hang out.
Stopped in there before a comedy show at Ridley's...overpriced drinks, pompous attitude (doorman? give me a break), and the food is about 20% overpriced as well. While they have the pool tables and TV's and all there's something missing-an identity. There's nothing there that makes you want to come back, just location and with so many other choices even that isn't enough.
Entertainment coupon may make it worth the stop but drink water and get out quick. Shame.
horrible dining experience – This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. I order a burger without mushrooms, and it came with mushrooms and nothing else. I informed the waiter and he sent it back to the kitchen and told me "I wrote it down right", and offered no apology. A new burger came 10 minutes later, this time without mushrooms and now the bacon was missing. 10 minutes later, I was able to flag down the waiter and I informed him about the wrong order and his reply was "Why did you wait until now, I've been by twice." In fact, he had not been by twice, but had walked past the table a few times to other tables he was waiting on, never saying a word to us even though I was trying to get his attention. He brought a bowl of bacon and walked off. As he was walking off, we asked to speak to a manager and then he said that he would try to comp my burger. He brought the receipt saying he had comped the burger, but it was still on the bill. We told him and without a word he took the bill and came back later with the new bill. We told him that the experience had been pretty poor and he responded "I know" and laughed. On the way out we talked to the manager, and he said that the next time we we're there to remind him and that "our order would be perfect". There wont be a next time though. This was a horrible experience and I would highly recommend not going here.
Never Again – NEVER again! I used to play softball for Mr.B's years ago in Rochester when the owners used to understand the meaning of customer service. Food was ok, but the prices of the drinks were outrageous! When I complained to the manager, (I use that term losely) he was condescending, and rude. He actually used the excuse that "this was Royal Oak". So what? I live in Ferndale and boy am I glad to have the option of going out to lunch in my city without paying $50 for a meal! Don't waste your time or money. Kristin
over priced drinks – Service & food were good and my friends & i were enjoying the experience until the bill came. We were appaled that the price of a 16 oz draft beer (Bass Ale) was $6.50 and that a bottle
of Michelob was $3.75 and a diet coke $2.25. We asked to speak with the Manager who made us feel unwelcome and unrealistic that we should complain about the prices since it is Royal Oak. I don't care if it is Beverly Hills, no beer establishment should get away with charging those prices. I learned now that it is wise to ask the price of a beer before ordering. I guess you just trust that the establsihment will charge a fair price. I won't ever go back again!
Never Agani! – Some friends and I went here on the recommendation of another friend. Big mistake. The food and the service were terrible! My fish and chips, the fish basket I believe, would be more aptly called fries with a piece of fish. My friend?s chicken was barely editable and the fries were soggy. And what?s with the coleslaw? It?s pink! No one was able to eat it, and it had nothing to do with it being pink!
The waiter almost never came by and the manger was rude when we did complain. One place I?ll never return to.
This sports bar is a great place to start a night of traipsing around Royal Oak. – In Short
Two big rooms allow for different moods. Discreet clans sit at tables, while active bunches roam among pool tables, dart boards and video games. Televisions playing the big games are within view from virtually every seat. Lunch is crowded with locals on their breaks. In the after-work hours, yuppies come in droves. The Bermuda onion blossom, is a popular starter, while steak, ribs and fish are among the entree choices.
