Portofino is good....tasty French Dip

Food at Jacks is ok....had a good club sandwich there off the appetizer menu a couple weeks ago.

Also Clamdiggers on the Rasin River down towards Monroe for a good time.

I was just thinking about that place. You have to try their mash potato pizza.

Great place for a cold beer and pizza

Beach Grill (in the same canal as Jacks, but in a little)
Sindbads
Signature Grille in the Riverfront apartments (call first for transient docking) www.signaturegrille.com

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will try them all in my own time. This weekend it looks like I will have 4 kids with me two 5 year olds one 6 yearold and a 2 year old. Kids love pizza! is Clam Digger a venu for kids around three in the afternoon on Saturday? Adults get a cold beer and the kids get pizza I love it...adults love good pizza also

Beforewarned, Clamdiggers is not exactly a real high class joint. More of a biker bar on the water to be specific. And its a pretty good haul from the Detroit River, especially in a 21 foot boat.

Jacks would be more kid friendly than clamdiggers, and they have some good pizzas there too along with a good selection on the kids menu...

Plus I think the boat inside is like a little play room (dont quote me)
