Visions for Vacancies: What Should Move into Steak & Ale Location?

Steak & Ale on Ann Arbor Road has been vacant since 2008; what would you like to see in its place?

The former Steak & Ale building at 40347 W. Ann Arbor Road in Plymouth Township demands attention with its decorative decor and large sign facing travelers along the township's main thoroughfare. 

When the restaurant closed after its ownership company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2008, it left a sizable vacancy just west of Interstate 275.

What would you like to see in this space?

How about 'Joe's Crab Shack' or an IHOP?

I agree that Joe's Crab Shack or IHop would be great. What about a nice affordable BBQ place? Or perhaps an upscale carry out with made- to- order salads, sandwiches, entrees, etc. I think that would be especially good at lunchtime.

Though well suited for a restaurant, we would love to have a Trader Joe's near us.

How about a good fruit/vegetable market like Joe's Produce?

A Tomato Brothers restaurant. There's one in Howell and its always packed. I think they should put one there.

Some good suggestions have been made.

Steak & Ale should move back in! The prime rib was awesome and the salad bar was amazing. Grew up going there a couple times a month. Since my first request is a little unreasonable, maybe a Real Seafood Co. or another restaurant of that type. Absolutely no major chains please.
