We chose Bastones for a recent birthday celebration because of its location, because it has a kid's menu, and because they have tables that can easily accommodate a larger group. Our waitress was very attentive (sorry I don't remember her name), the food came out hot and was delicious. Let me recommend the crab regions, seafood risotto, and the burgers,... More

We've stopped in here several times, for different things. The service is always hit or miss. Tonight, it was good. We were here for a beer, then, coffee & desert. The service was great this time! I really enjoyed the cannolis on the mini dessert menu. They were getting pretty busy & I noticed lots of wait staff on the... More

My first restaurant review ever. Visited Sat Feb 4 around 4:30 pm. Enjoyed the Royal IPA very much. Waitstaff very nice. Ordered the short rib sandwich and couldn't believe what was served. The meat was so terribly overcooked that it was difficult to cut with the steak knife. It was even more difficult to chew. Short ribs are supposed to... More

We went to this brewery before the Indulgence event and we pleased! The wait staff were very attentive and friendly! Food was delicious. We opted for apps and sandwiches but seeing some entrees come out, looked quite nice. They also had some unique beers that they had crafted. Would definitely go back to this place again.

They have really good beer selections & a smallish, but decent menu. The service is hit or miss, though. We came twice this day, as we were in Royal Oak all day. The lunch service from the bar tender at the bar booth for lunch was great! The frites are why we come- just come for them if nothing else.... More

Both myself and several friends made reservations here at Bastone for dinner, and we were well accommodated. While the service was pretty slow, I think the food made up for that. The menu has a huge variety of choices, with something for everyone. The chicken sandwich on a pretzel bun with fries was really good! Definitely make sure you get... More

Stopped for dinner with family after attending the Detroit Zoo Christmas light show. Chose Bastone because they were one of the few restaurants that took reservations that evening. The atmosphere is nice and the menu items varied and very good. Had the Pountine and Soft Pretzel appetizers along with pictures of the house brew Monumental Blonde. Parking is an issue... More

This place is great for any type of meal or if you just want to grab a drink. Their chicken and waffles are hands down one of my favorite meals I have had. I highly recommend this spot.
