Hello again my Diva friends. We really have a good one for you today. The Undercover Divas traveled to 7 Mile and Gratiot, in Detroit. We have heard good things about a restaurant called Capers Steakhouse. This restaurant sells and prepares steaks by the ounce. Delmonico ($.85 per oz.), New York Strip ($.85 per oz.), Filet ($1.65 per oz.) and most others, subject to market availability. What a great idea for all types of appetites, the hungry to those with the small appetite.
We walked in and a nice young lady greeted us. We decided to sit near the bar so that we could get a view of the whole place. It was pretty full when we arrived, a Saturday afternoon. Often, you can tell what type of restaurant it is by how many are waiting to get in.
They have a great variety to their menu: ribs, shrimp, chicken, pork chops. They also have a few different types of fish dishes, including Icelandic cod, salmon, shrimp and cat fish (southern fried.) They also have sandwiches, burgers and Spaghetti. We were greeted by our waiter, Nathan, and told to take our time deciding what we wanted, so we ordered drinks and looked through the menu.
We noticed two customers at the bar getting ready to be served huge, impressive drinks. Intrigued, we asked what it was. Get ready for this, it’s called the Shady Lady Strawberry Margarita ( 8 shots of liquor and priced at $16.) It looked amazing and it was served by Ray, one of the waiters.
When Nathan brought our drinks, we were ready to order. Gini ordered French onion soup loaded with cheese and croutons ($3.75) the New York Steak medium well, baked potato ($3.25) and a side of broccoli . Suse ordered the Filet with red skinned potatoes ($2.50) and an individual salad ($3.95 build your own). I had my favorite the Delmonico with Cajun spice done medium well, the baked potato, and garlic bread ($.60). (Note: The have an excellent mushroom soup, but it’s not available on the weekends.) To my surprise, Nathan didn’t write anything down, which amazed all three of us, as everything came just the way we asked for it.
All in all what a great experience. The wait staff, the food and the hustle and bustle of a full restaurant was worth writing about. Capers is located at 14726 Gratiot Avenue , near 7 Mile, in Detroit. It’s easy to find, look for a large red awning. It is not a good area of Detroit, but there is secured, attended parking on the side and behind Capers for added customer safety. Their hours of operations are M-Thursday from 11am to 11pm, Friday 11am to midnight, Saturday noon to midnight, and Sunday 3pm to 10pm.
The “Cheers” atmosphere, quality and quantity of food, and value of service make Capers a winner. If you are a steak lover and don’t want to pay an arm and a leg at other steak establishments, give Capers Steakhouse a try, you won’t be disappointed.
Special Attention: It’s always good to have that go-to place when you need a breakfast at 3am or maybe a dessert with friends. We found just the place. They never close, it’s a 24/7/365 restaurant and they are located everywhere. The DIVAS hit the Denny’s in Roseville (just south of Macomb Mall on Gratiot) and had desssert and coffee, ’cause that’s what we wanted. You can go at 3 am, 3 pm or any time in between and find a bustling restaurant with an extensive menu. A go-to place, ready to meet your hunger needs, at any time.
