(Visited 08/2011): Bastone is located in the heart of Royal Oak at the corner of S. Main and 5th. Metered parking is available in the surrounding area. The interior is pretty cozy with a small bar area on the right and high backed booths and tables in the restaurant area. They have a patio as well. Brick and tile motif. Above the bar hang signs featuring each of their standard beers. Bastone serves 8 beers including a seasonal or two, and a sampler is available. They range from Blonde, Pils, and Wit to a Dubbel, Tripel and Saison Noir. All of the beers are above average. They also have a few bottles from Jolly Pumpkin and North Peak. Service on a relatively slow weekday (I arrived right as they opened). The bartender was knowledgeable about their beers and of other recommendations for the area. The food at Bastone has a Belgian tilt, and my pomme frites and sandwich were good. Overall this is a pretty solid spot. Maybe not a fair comparison but I think Brugge is a lot better, however this is still a place worth visiting in the area.

Very nice at lunchtime with big and modern outside patio.Staff: Heather and Rockne the new brewmaster since November, and another waitress, were all very friendly and made me at home, even before they saw I was taking notes. This is on a very nice street for Detroit, in my opinion. Itís quite walkable. Parking in the day was reasonable. I am told that it gets very busy, smokey, crowded at night. This restaurant is part of a physical group of 4 at he site, including a rock club downstairs. The beer on tap is only their own.

huge open space, tons of room but a really small bar area... selection of 6 regulars and 2 seasonal drafts, all were decent enough to have again... service not beer centered but pleasant... food is very very average, the chicken seem fake grilled, the bread too toasted and the fries were soggy... recommend having a sampler but donít dine here

Fairly nice atmosphere, on the high end of the medium upscale. Food was pretty nice, I had a turkey sandwich on some really nice bread with cheddar. Beers were pretty decent with only the Blonde being a real disappointment. Wonít knock your socks off but pretty solid. Service was quite friendly and reasonably attentive. Definitely a fantastic spot to stop for lunch.

I almost missed this place as it wasnít listed as a brewpub and it most decidedly is. Eight beers on tap, mostly Belgian. The beers were above average and a lot better than Royal Oak. My hard to please wife really liked the beers so I let her have most of the sampler so we could stop at another place on the day. The service wasnít bad though checking out was a challenge.

I was excited to try a Belgian Brew Pub! I liked the menu, shame the beer was well below average. 5 beer sampler with 2 seasonals (that they donít serve as part of the sampler - which bugs me). Great food though.

i saw they had a lot of award winning beers, so i stopped in for a sampler. very underwhelmed by the beers. average, textbook beers with very little personality or creativity. food was unremarkable.

Nice restaurant type brewpub. Fancier menu with dinners as well as sandwiches and pizza. Full bar and wine list. They had eight of their own beers on tap that ranged from blonde to stout, with a few belgians thrown in. The beers I had were well made. Maybe not a destination but worth the stop if in the area.
