For half a century, Sindbad's has been unique as Detroit's only restaurant with its own marina and a great view of the Detroit River. Located across from Belle Isle, the restaurant hasn't changed much in 50 years. The dozen seafood specials are reliable and well presented, and diners can also get Angus steaks and large sandwiches of all types, along with salads. The view and Sindbad's reputation as a party spot attract a large crowd to hear live music in the second-floor room on most nights. Summer is the best time to come here for dining and dancing, though the Sunday brunch is also popular.
I ve been coming to Sindbad s since I was 7 years old. Many good memories here. My wife and son and I come every year to celebrate their birthdays in February. We ve never had a bad meal or bad experience here. I ve ordered calamari as an appetizer many other places, but none match Sindbad s in flavor or texture.
I get over there at least once a month in the Winter, MORE in the Summer. I am glad it is where it is, keeps the riff raff away. I have found no equal on their Clam Chowder, 5/5 Stars, flavor and Texture!!! I go there for the Boatswains Mate, You know shrimp is the eats for the Captain, right! Oh Yeah!
A Must Have!
I was truly disappointed at my one and only visit to Sindbad's. Originally from the Midwest but now living on the West Coast, I tried many excellent seafood restaurant but this place was just plain awful. To start with, the place is located in an area, which is not very desirable (doesn't look safe) even though it is located off the river. We walked in this place and the pungent air of cigerette filled my nose. Essentially, you have to get past the bar to find the host(ess). Having been seated, we were served plain rolls and butter. How original is that? Any olive oil or garlic to go with the bread? Of course not. The menu seemed liked it offered more meat entrees than seafood. How about something that isn't fried? The wait for our food didn't help either since it was graduation weekend. We waited and waited and waited. When the food came, I thought to myself I could have gone to a Red Lobster (which I haven't visited in over 25 years) and have gotten better service, cheaper food (not necessarily better), and a smile from the waitress. Or maybe gone to a Sizzler and gotten steak instead of fish (What's an extra 10 cents?). Truly a bad experience.

all sampled the scallops, best we ever had.The steaks we saw at the table next to us looked great and the people seemed to
enjoy them. Prices were in line for the
