FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- After almost two years, the former Steak & Ale restaurant in Farmington Hills will soon be breathing a sign of new life. The building has been completely remodeled and it features a brand new menu. Other new additions include two pool tables, an internet jukebox, free wireless internet and much more. The restaurant will bring back its salad bar and is expected to have some sort of bread and butter. The new Steak & Tavern will open for business on May 11.

The 7,000-square foot building has a seating capacity of just under 250, according to the city of Farmington Hills. It was originally built in 1976. The restaurant was completely redone on the inside. Steak & Tavern even has a new logo that looks like a highway shield sign.

Eric Davis is the proprietor of the new Steak & Tavern restaurant in Farmington Hills.

"The size of the building and the location was wonderful," he explained as reasons for opening in the former restaurant. "We totally reskinned it, new carpet, new paint throughout, new paint on the outside, new landscaping. It's just very accommodating for parties small to large. We took out a banquet room and make it a game room. It's a little bit more friendly for kids and family as well."

The restaurant will feature a brand new menu with prices starting at just under $7 and going up from there.

"We have 100 percent certified Angus beef on all our steaks and our burgers," Davis said. "We hand cut our steaks in house. We still offer the prime rib and an awesome salad bar. The other thing is we offer a few unique seafood items. For instance, fresh water shrimp is one of our specialties. The price range is very reasonable from $6.99 to $21.99."

The restaurant is so huge that it features three salad bars. However, only one will be used during most days. The other two are for banquets or large groups.

"It's got 18 items on the salad bar," the proprietor and general manager said. "Eighteen cold items and six warm item toppings as well."

Steak & Tavern has already begun hiring its staff. Some former Steak & Ale employees have already applied to work at the new restaurant.

"We'll have another job fair in another week, week and a hallf and we should be all set," he explained. "You can actually get an application on our website, www.steakandtavern.com. You can link it from there, print it out, fill it out and bring it to our building. From both locations that were left from the previous time, this one and also the one in Plymouth. We've had a lot of people inquiring about what it's going to be. Steak & Ale always had a lot of great employees in the past."

Davis said he is looking to open another Steak & Tavern restaurant in the future. The former Steak & Ale location in Plymouth is one of the possibilities.

"We do want to do a second location right after this one opens," the proprietor and general manager said.

There are many other great additions to this new restaurant that customers are sure to enjoy.

"We have two pool tables, Golden Tea golf, tea, darts, duckhunt," he said. "We've installed a jukebox, downloadable jukebox, bar ledge. We've refaced the entire inside. We've got seven TVs, two 50's, three 32-inch, two 22's behind the bar. Those three rooms are the sports rooms. The rest of the restaurant is casual dining."

"I would love to try the new Steak & Tavern," said Tabatha Sieracki, a former Steak and Ale customer. "I hope the menu hasn't changed either. Steak & Ale had the best prime rib, sweet pumpernickel bread and a salad bar. I miss salad bars! Steak and Ale used to have several locations in Michigan in the '90s, Sterling Heights, Troy and Farmington Hills. Farmington was the last to go."

Former Steak & Ale locations are re-opening under new names across the country

When all company-owned Steak & Ale locations closed for business in July 2008, customers were left without their favorite restaurant. To fill this customer demand, entrepreneurs started to re-open these restaurants under a different name and still offer the same basic menu for their customers.

These restaurants are now open for business in cities like Atlanta, Indianapolis, Chattanooga, Tenn. and Spartanburg, S.C.
