Bill Roberts, proprietor of the successful Beverly Hills Grill and Streetside Seafood, opened this neighborhood tavern in June 2007 on Fourth Street in Royal Oak. With mohair booths and bentwood chairs, noted restaurant designer Ron Rea has created an ersatz 1930s tavern updated to a 2007 bistro. Grazers can easily make a hearty meal of the “bar-plate” appetizers. Notable mains include mac and cheese, Southwest shrimp and four steak choices. Bustling, noisy, with a train passing through the heart of downtown Royal Oak a block away now and then.
