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!

Stopped by on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Big fan of Belgian ales,so this place was on my must-visit list for a while. Chicken and waffles were excellent, the kids plates were huge, pomme frittes were perfect with garlic mayo. Wife and I split the tripel and the dubbel, both were quite good. The only hiccup was that thw service was almost painfully slow, especially considering there were only a few other customers there at the time. Next time will just be the pomme frittes and beer at the bar.

Great Belgian inspired beers in a hip atmosphere. Pretty good food, great belgian frites with a variety of dipping sauces. In Royal Oak, so expect a wait during peak dining times. Nectar De Dieux is a great tripel. Award winning brewer.

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