I attended a tradeshow in nearby Troy, MI and poured over the BeerAdvocate website to find out where to go over the weekend. Never having been to Detroit, and frankly a bit apprehensive about going downtown, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Royal Oak was such a nice little town. There were several places that received good reviews, but I found Bastone first, and am happy to say that it was a great choice!

The weather was very pleasant so I sat outside and ordered the beer sampler (8 different beers) and their famous steak sandwich.

My wife says that I can be very picky, but I enjoyed every beer that they brought and would order any of them again. The sandwich was marinated in wine and spices and was delicious.
The service was fantastic-the waiter was delighted to answer all my questions about the beers.
Highly recommended!

Beers littered with off flavors. I am perplexed as to how they have won so many awards.

This was stop #2 of a pub crawl for our group of 4 this day. We has just finished lunch at another brewery so we just wanted to try the beers as the primary part of our experience here. It was just after lunchtime and the brewery was nearly empty. Consequently we sat at the bar and had good service and got to talk with the bartender.

The brewery is a cut above most brewpubs as far as the ambiance goes, and the layout is more like an upscale restaurant and bar in the decor. The beers are all Belgian-inspired so I was a little apprehensive because this 'style' is usually not a favorite. We ordered a flight of 7 beer samplers, and all were very tasty. I may be changing my opinion about whether Belgian-inspired beers are to my liking. Our group (and I) liked every one of them, and we decided that they deserve a grading of a B across the board.

I forgot to look at the food menu but I notice that it is on the brewery's website. It looks very extensive, and I'd love to come back here someday for a meal. I highly recommend this brewery for a visit.

Been to this place twice; once inside, and once in the outdoor seating area.

The indoor atmosphere quite nice: clean, somewhat dark and barlike, and huge. It is a bit noisy, however, but nothing excessive. The outdoor seating allows you to people watch on Main Street, but it's a bit cramped and the tables are tiny. Also, if you're looking specifically to sit outdoors, prepare to wait a bit, as seating is limited. I'd actually recommend sitting indoors if you're having food simply due to space limitations.

The quality is top-notch. The food and beer are excellent and look excellent too.

The service is good; it was quite busy when we went both times and the servers were quick and attentive.

The selection is huge when it comes to food. Lots of fatty Belgian cuisine, but sooo good. It took me a long time to decide what I wanted since the menu was so large and had a lot of attractive options. I've only had burgers so far but they were fantastic.

The beer selection is quite wide, too. They offer flights of 6, 7 or 8, so I got the flight of eight, which was all their general beer plus their two seasonals. I liked all but one.

While a bit pricy, I'd say the value is worth it overall. Had my boyfriend and I gotten pints rather than the biggest flight each, our bill would have been much cheaper. I'd say the food prices are about average for dinner in Royal Oak.
