Elwood Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: Formerly at the corner of Elizabeth and Woodward Avenues (hence the name), this diner was moved to make way for Comerica Park; now, the landmark eatery is located behind left field. Its unique, enameled, stainless steel facade was restored by owner Charles Forbes. After the move, the diner's interior also went through a complete remodeling, returning it to its Art Deco roots. A busy, fun place, it caters to sports crowds in search of classics: hand-cut fries, fiery Buffalo wings, burgers, tilapia fingers and Detroit's famed Maurice salad--- shredded greens tossed with smoked turkey, ham, Swiss cheese, diced tomatoes, sweet gherkins and a hard-boiled egg swathed in classic Maurice dressing. Don't miss the killer desserts either, such as the caramel sundae, a warm apple-cinnamon spring roll topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Adding to the allure, it’s the only restaurant located right between Ford Field and Comerica. So, on game days, the regular hours expand to accommodate the throng of fans. There's also a free shuttle to and from Red Wings games. It's also open on Lions' and Tigers' home-game days.
