The Caucus Club, located in the Penobscot Building, is an historic, stylish art deco masterpiece featuring two distinct dining spaces, historic bar and live Jazz. The front entrance leads guests to the elegant front dining room with the stage being the focal point. The back entrance leads to the dark and moody back room and bar with space for mingling, cocktails and dining. Adjacent to the bar entrance is the Caucus Club Kitchen, fully viewable from the hallway of the Penobscot building.

The menu centers around the in-house dry-aging room, yielding Prime Steaks and Chops expertly butchered on site. The balance of the menu features seafood and eclectic dishes that change with the seasons. Lunch has its own unique offerings, and the Bar offers distinct offerings for Happy Hour. An extensive wine list is housed in a state of the art cellar with private lockers.

    My wife and I did an intimate small wedding and went to dinner just ourselves. The Caucus club was a next level dining experience. Our server John and his assistant Nick were incredible attentive, informative, charismatic and still gave us our space to enjoy each others company and the live piano player. The head Chef himself came to deliver our oysters Rockefeller and John was very informative on making sure we got exactly what we were looking for as far as our drinks and the menu. I had the dry aged Kansas City bone in strip and my wife the sirloin they were the best streaks we ever had and the asparagus and Mac and cheese were great pairings. The sides and all portions are huge and made to share as John said when we arrived we will not go home hungry. I had the house special old fashioned which I highly recommend and my wife the mule, which she enjoyed just as much. We most certainly had leftovers and many memories from the food and staff. We will be sure to visit again on special occasions. Thank you for making our night one to remember.

    I would highly recommend the Caucus Club. The reviews I read prior to going were spot on. Everyone said the food was amazing and they did not lie. The ambiance was amazing, the food and sides were great, and the service and teamwork in the restaurant was superb. The manager was VERY accommodating and he even walked around to tables to check to see how everything was going. I ordered the filet and added on a lobster tell, my fiancé had the Chicago steak, for sides Mac, and twice baked potato. Everything was very good. The lobster tail was seasoned, the steak was tender, the Mac was great, the potato had onions so I didn’t love that but it wasn’t horrible. All in all I would definitely go back, it was pricey but the quality of food was worth it.

    This was our second time at The Caucus Club. It is such a great time, everyone is very friendly and welcoming and go out of their way to make your evening special. I would recommend starting in the bar with a cocktail, to check out the old pictures and memorabilia. The singer who started at 7:00 was fantastic, we sat close enough to be able to see her and the pianist but we were still able to talk. The service was very attentive, and the food was fantastic. We had the table side Caesar salad, carpaccio and tartare to start, and then filet mignon, scallops and salmon. Desserts of course, and they were happy to make decaf espresso to top it off. All prepared beautifully. The prices are nothing to sneeze at but for a special occasion, or if this is how you like to treat yourself, you can’t go wrong by choosing The Caucus Club. We will be back!

    I made the reservation about a week in advance, for my wife's birthday. We discussed a particular table from a diagram on their website. I confirmed this again a few days before the date. We arrived exactly 15 minutes early and we were asked to wait for 5 minutes, which is obviously not a problem. When we were directed to our table, it was not the one promised. No explanation was given except "someone is using it". Okay, no problem. Our table was in the main part of the dining room, where there was a lot going on. The music was nice. Our waitress, Shelley, however, was not exactly warm and welcoming. At times she was almost argumentative. Also, in a couple of instances she took an offhand remark as an order, such as when "Do you have Perrier or Pellegrino?" was taken as an order, and she brought another brand of water without further comment. We discussed possibly wanting a Caesar Salad, and the next thing we knew she was mixing it up at the table. It was very good, but we never explicitly ordered it. At times she seemed to be asking us what we wanted for our entrée, but then she was not paying attention. The food was delicious and the portions were generous, so much so that we were getting full. She seemed insistent that we order an entrée, and we ended up with a very nice filet, on a plate, to share. Overall the experience was that of a nice meal, in a fairly disorganized atmosphere. Shelley's demeanor did not add to the the experience in a positive way.

    Amazing atmosphere & knowledgable, attentive staff. Matt was great, from showing us the different dining room options to showing us to our table from the bar when it was ready. Food was delicious - steaks cooked perfectly, table side Caesar salad was a great experience, and q some of the best calamari I’ve eaten.

    Complete wait staff chaos became apparent after about 20 minutes into the dinner service. The waitress was slow in getting our drink order in. Drinks were healthy pours and well done. My wife had a lobster bisque and I had the French onion. The bisque was too salty and the French onion was at best mediocre. Most mom and pop djnners have served better. A Caesar’s salad for two came out and prepared at table. The waiter failed to separate out the yolk from the white on first attempt and then dropped the ice bucked all over the floor. At this point it started to become a comedy show. The porterhouse steak was served with the two of us splitting it. The waitress talked us into the garlic butter topping. However, when it came out the butter was not melting on the steak at all. The plate was ice cold and the steak was extremely rare. So much so the it was difficult to cut. It would just squish under the knife. The steak was ordered medium rare but I checked the middle of the strip and it was cool to the touch! Not good. Even if it had been cooked correctly it still would be flavorless and bland. The waitress was told and she did offer to take it back. It’s been my experience that when that happens they cook the hell out of the meat. So we opted not to consume and cook it at home correctly. The waitress was rather curt and dismissed our comments as if we knew nothing. Our sides were delivered incorrectly and the waitress only caught the mistake after walking away and then was speaking with another waiter. She came over and admired the mistake and said to just enjoy it. Well that dish was creamed spinach which was not fit to be served to anyone let alone to charge for it. Meanwhile on two occasions the kitchen staff came out to correct the wait staff on other tables orders and covering mistakes. The frustration was very evident on many the the staff faces. They where rushing around and quibbling with each other. It was a chit show. Expensive & poor!!

    Nice good and atmosphere, great service. Prices have nearly doubled since they opened, now making this one of the most expensive menus in the Detroit are. Not sure the overall "value "is there at these rates for good steakhouse fare. The split plate fees are annoying and no smaller (less than 14oz) dry-aged cuts. Very nice cocktails.

    First time at the restaurant and my husband and I will return. The calamari was great to start out. Then we both tried the Ceasar salad that they make in front of you which was awesome, then I had the Halabut and my husband just wanted oysters and they were both very good!! Service was good not great but that was fine we really enjoyed the dinner.

    Came here for the second time after attending theater . An exceptional upscale experience with prices that were in line for a top fine dining venue. Menu is excellent. Our party of three had lamb chops, a prime NY strip and the Halibut. All were top of the line. Calimari was very good. Sides were nice. Portions were more than expected. Service was outstanding. Cocktails were perfect and well poured. Lovely wine list.

    Came to dinner, on a double date, to celebrate an engagement. We dined on the Friday before NYE so not sure if that had to do with the restaurant being so quiet but it was really intimate and I love that type of dining. With that being said, our table also wasn’t ready due to previous diners that were in our table and wouldn’t leave (think the manager told us that). We sat at the bar for a few drinks to sort this out. That was probably the most annoying part of the whole night everything else was great. The food was good, valet was quick, price wasn’t too crazy and we really enjoyed ourselves.

    Our server Kay was professional, sophisticated and very down to earth. Her suggestions were spot on. I had the small Filet and my wife had the Halibut with root vegetables that was suggested by Kay. Both were exceptional. Kay suggested the Tiramisu for dessert and we have to say it was one of the most exceptional desserts we have ever tasted. Service was exceptional and the waits were normal. We asked to make sure we left in time to head to the Fisher Theater and we left exactly when we had requested. The whole experience was a pleasure.

The staff is extremely attentive, the décor is wonderful and the ambiance is the best. The food is absolutely delicious and the presentation is unmatched.

    My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent dinner at the Caucus Club. The entire staff was very warm and friendly. Our waiter, Alan, was outstanding. He prepared a Caesar salad, at table side, during which he told a history of the salad. After our delicious meal, he provided a tour of the restaurant, which has been extensively renovated since our last visit. If you seek a fine dining experience, this is the place to go!
