This place isn't amazing or anything but it does offer reasonably good diner food, good service, and reasonable prices. All in all, not a bad place to get some brunch or an order of fish and chips etc. Seems like George and his waitstaff were...More

As an aficionado of Detroit style "coneys", this one falls short. They used to be better. I think they have changed the hot dog and chili that they use. The dog does not have the natural casing which gives a "snap" when bitten. The chili...More

Many coney island restaurants have slopped together food filled with lots and lots of grease. Senate is known for its freshness. Salads are crisp and vegetables are flavorful. I ordered the eggs and gyro meat for breakfast and it was delish. Fantastic spinach pie and...More

It was late and snowy and we didn't realize that they were closing not too long after we arrived! They were all so gracious and made sure they were completely taken care of! I will return when I come back to Michigan1

If you're looking for a good coney dog, this is the place. They use "real cheese" on the chili cheese fries, not the canned nacho cheese. Food and service was great. Excellent rice pudding and coconut cream pie.

This place is packed most of the time. It's a very typical Coney. Wide variety on the menu and they are fairly quick to drop a meal in front of you. Service can be spotty depending on your server. Some people get it, others never...More

Have eaten here several times because its quick & USUALLY very good (for a coney island). My husband & I ordered our usual chili cheese fries, coney dogs! Something about the fries was off- they just tasted BAD. The manager (owner?) asked "how was everything?"...More
