Iconic Detroit Venue, Rattlesnake Club, Shuts Down After 36-Year Run

The Rattlesnake Club shut down on June 28th, having operated in Downtown Detroit for almost 40 years.

According to Mark Tuttle, the Chief Financial Officer of the restaurant, severance money was issued to the staff members who were informed of the closure on June 29. The contents of those shipments were kept a secret.

The restaurant first opened its doors in 1988 and was once featured on Food Nation with Bobby Flay.

Situated at 300 River Place Drive, the eatery gained recognition for its exquisite cuisine, including game birds, among other dishes.

“We are grateful for the support of our loyal customers over these many years. Most of all, we are grateful for the loyal service of our dedicated employees. These seasoned professionals’ focus on producing the finest food and outstanding customer service have been responsible for maintaining the restaurant’s reputation these many years,” Tuttle stated.
