DETROIT -- Tom's Oyster House is a seafood restaurant located on Jefferson across the street from the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit. The decor is very nautical with pictures of ships on the wall. The ceiling is the old tin ceiling from the old days with schoolhouse lighting hanging from the ceiling. The floor was the little black and white tiles and looked like the original flooring. They had several tables with no booths scattered around the bar area. There was a hallway leading to another room full of seating.

I ordered one of the specials of the day, which was grilled pickerel with cajun cream sauce and it was fabulous. The fresh fish melted in your mouth. It came with rice pilaf and variety of fresh vegetables. I also had the clam chowder, which was also great. It was beige with chopped clams and potatoes throughout. The soup was very creamy and very tasty.

My husband ordered another special of the day, which was the Rockefeller Stuffed Trout. That was also excellent. Both special meals were $13.99 each for the smaller portions.

On the menu, the seafood dinners range from $12.99 to $24.99 depending on what you order. They also offer cold appetizers like oysters on the half shell for $1.99 each or $9.99 for a half dozen or $18.99 for a dozen, to smoked salmon with capers, onions and horseradish sauce for $13.99. Hot appetizers include grilled portabello served with red pepper coulis and cheese for $8.99 to (six) sauteed shrimp scampi for $11.99.

There are sandwiches on the menu from $8.99 to $13.99. Salads such as the Greek salad ran $6.99 for the small size to $9.99 for the large size. Another interesting salad was the Maryland Crab Cake salad, which includes mixed greens, red onion, tomato, cucumbers, bleu cheese with a honey dijon vinaigrette for $14.99.

The wine list was extensive and prices started at $6 per glass or about $30 for the bottle. The drink special that night was the Pumpkin Martini, which was $8.00. Beers are relatively inexpensive and run $3 per glass for Bell's, Tom's Ale, Sam Adams or Blue Moon. They have specialty beers, bottled ales and bottled lights also.

I would have to say, it was a pleasure to dine there and I would definitely recommend it next time you are in downtown Detroit. The service was friendly and the waitress was fully informed about the specials and their prices.
