Roast Reviews

  • SuperintendentChalmers reviewWell, Seymour, I made it- despite your directions.
    Superintendent Chalmers.
    - I hope you're prepared for an unforgettable luncheon.
    - Yeah.
    Oh, egads! My roast is ruined.
    But what if I were to purchase fast food and disguise it as my own cooking? Delightfully devilish, Seymour.
    Ah- Skinner with his crazy explanations The superintendent's gonna need his medication When he hears Skinner's lame exaggerations There'll be trouble in town tonight Seymour! Superintendent, I was just- uh, just stretching my calves on the windowsill.
    Isometric exercise.
    Care to join me? Why is there smoke coming out of your oven, Seymour? Uh- Oh.
    That isn't smoke.
    It's steam.
    Steam from the steamed clams we're having.
    Steamed clams.
    Superintendent, I hope you're ready for mouthwatering hamburgers.
    I thought we were having steamed clams.
    D'oh, no.
    I said steamed hams.
    That's what I call hamburgers.
    You call hamburgers steamed hams? Yes.
    It's a regional dialect.
    - Uh-huh.
    Uh, what region? - Uh, upstate New York.
    Well, I'm from Utica, and I've never heard anyone use the phrase "steamed hams.
    " Oh, not in Utica.
    It's an Albany expression.
    I see.
    You know, these hamburgers are quite similar to the ones they have at Krusty Burger.
    Oh, no.
    Patented Skinner burgers.
    Old family recipe.
    - For steamed hams.
    - Yes.
    And you call them steamed hams despite the fact that they are obviously grilled.
    Ye- You know, the- One thing I should- - Excuse me for one second.
    - Of course.
    Well, that was wonderful.
    A good time was had by all.
    I'm pooped.
    I should be- Good Lord! What is happening in there? - Aurora borealis.
    - Uh- Aurora borealis at this time of year at this time of day in this part of the country localized entirely within your kitchen? - Yes.
    - May I see it? No.
    ! The house is on fire.
    ! No, Mother.
    It's just the northern lights.
    Well, Seymour, you are an odd fellow but I must say you steam a good ham.

  • Alex TRated as the best restaurant in Michigan and listed in 50 best steakhouses in US. Reality didn't meet the expectations. Probably they changed the menu or something... I find Ruth Chris way better.

  • Brian S.The wines list is truly worldwide. Not your typical Napa-centric steakhouse list. Enjoyed a Hungarian Tokaji with dessert.

    55555 by Brian S.

  • Anica PBest Steaks Ever,pricy but worth it!

    55555 by Anica P

  • Laura L.My husband makes the best scallops, hands down, but Roast's were a very close second to his. The dessert "The Bar," was a sugar addicts dream. It was phenoninal, it's a must!

    55555 by Laura L.

  • Timothy H.Excellent food

    55555 by Timothy H.

  • Jessy ROrdered the beast tacos and they were very dry and bland with no good hot sauce available. Stuffed peppered were very spicy.

    33333 by Jessy R

  • Amy L.Great drinks. I'm not comfy eating here as a vegetarian --not much choice if any-- but it's definitely a nice stop for a fancy cocktail.

    55555 by Amy L.

  • Todd W.The food was very good. I had the beef tartar, pork chop and Brussels sprouts. Chop and tartar, phenomenal. Service, so so.

    55555 by Todd W.

  • The Wall Street JournalThis stylish bar in the Westin Book Cadillac hotel draws an after-work and weekend crowd. For $6 you can get the Roast Burger with bacon, cheddar, egg and pickled onion.

    55555 by The Wall Street Journal

  • Jose M.Try the chocolate coffee bang bang. Chocolate coffee cookie with chocolate ice cream. Oh man it is pretty amazing.

    55555 by Jose M.

  • Satish M.Dining here can be an experience. Ambience, location, staff are welcoming. The sides sometimes can trump the main course. I tried the Goat (a special) on this particular visit - very flavorful.

    55555 by Satish M.

  • Nick J.It may very well be the best restaurant in Detroit. You should probably go with a steak of some variety, but the Bronzino is good.

    55555 by Nick J.

  • Eric R.Everything, including the hanger steak and desserts, was fantastic.

    55555 by Eric R.

  • I Y.The rosemary fries were so good that I contemplated if I could bear eating regular fries ever again... In other words, definitely order them!

    55555 by I Y.

  • Liz BGreat ambiance.

    55555 by Matthew D.

  • Willie B.For privacy, there are booths by the bar. For a good view, you can't beat the windows that look out onto Washington Boulevard!

    55555 by Willie B.

  • Mikala S....and the steak knives are shitty.

    22222 by Mikala S.

  • Mikala S.I agree with others - the steak is Applebee's quality. But the salads, apps, and sides were yummy. I wasn't impressed by the brussel sprouts, but I'm somewhat of a bs conneseiur. :)

    55555 by Mikala S.

  • Jim M.If you can't go with Micha and Robbi, it may not be as great.

    55555 by Jim M.
