Joe Muer Seafood was one of the first places my husband and I ate at after we were married and had returned from our mini-honeymoon, when they had their location in Troy, MI near where we lived at the time. I remember being so impressed with their oyster bar selection, and with how fresh their seafood is, that was freshly flown in. We’ve been meaning to check out their Detroit location for a few years now, and we thought there wasn’t a better time to go then right now, just in time for Valentine’s Day and to celebrate some very happy news we will be officially sharing soon!

There’s something so refreshing, enchanting, and soul soothing about stepping into the tropical climate, being surrounded by the sweetest bird songs, and lush, blooming flowers like red or yellow hibiscus and bright pink bougainvillea.
