This was once the place to get a big burger and a beer. The burgers have gone down hill over the past decade. Still okay, but not great anymore!

We were seated and waited way too long. The waitress was very nice and and very apologetic which I appreciated very much even tho it's not her fault. Food was decent. Biggest side salad ive ever had and it was delicious.

Been to the Raft many times. A great stop along the way or just a destination. Good food and drinks. The service is great. And they have a party hut out back that not many people seem to know about.

This is a small bar-type restaurant on Lake St. Clair, well known for their "Raft Burgers". They are a large burger that can be ordered in many different configurations, all of which are exceptionally good. Eaten there many times and never had a bad meal. Great price range. Restaurant is clean, decorated nice and comfortable. Great experience.
