First visit post-fire. Not a regular so, can't comment on how prices may have changed. Scallop prep sounded a bit too much but ordered anyway. Dish was very good, very pleasantly surprised because I feared ravioli, sauce, etc. was a bit over the top for delicate scallops. Scallops were done very nicely (generous portion), ravioli was perfect and sauce was... More

We have been patrons of J. Baldwins ever since they took over the previous restaurant! Our favorite dish is the calamari, which is served with capers and a to die for lemony butter sauce! The food is great and the service exceptional!! Kayleigh is our server and we ask for her each time we dine! She takes service to the... More

The prices have gone up and the quality has gone down. Waitress handed out desert spoons holding the part that goes in your mouth between her fingers. The gazpacho was bland to say the least. Tomato juice with vegetables chopped into it. No zest of any kind. I was here years ago and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately my last visit... More

My wife and I visited on the Saturday evening before Labor Day. We didn't need reservations. The food was very good, as was the decor of this "open kitchen concept" restaurant. We tried a couple soups and appetizers. We will try the pizzas on our next visit (they looked very good). The live music was a little loud, but not... More

OK, I'm an Oakland County boy and both times I've come here I got slightly lost. And I'd never heard of Jeff Baldwin or his restaurant. I saw a review and decided to wander around Macomb County and find it. It's in an inconspicuous strip mall. What a surprise! J.Baldwins is world class! Every dish we tried is stepped up... More

After the fire and the grand re-opening gala are over, this place has once again gone back to being a quiet gem in Macomb County. The wood fired pizzas are well done and very reminiscent of their Italian heritage. Not the usual delivery type. They are available for eat in or carry out. The chef or his sons are usually... More

My husband had a fried fish dinner and I had the Chicken with butternut raviolis. Fish made him sick but everything else was great. We chose this evening because we hoping to avoid the singer, but she had recently added Thurs. to the schedule, so had to suffer through. When she went on break, you could look around and see...

We have gone to J Baldwins several times since they reopened after he fire We love the open atmosphere, and the wait staff are very courteous. We love Jeff's calamari and their surf and turf pizza. They also make a great margarita. Have not had a bad meal and even if we did, they would take care of the issue... More

Went there for the first time last night (Wed, 7/25/2014). wait staff was fair, a little slow. Ordered salmon dinner and after over 1/2 hr wait for the food it was not cooked and pink all over. The restaurant was not crowded as we got there at 5pm. My wife's salad w/ salmon was swimming in dressing, although her salmon... More

We have been coming to J Baldwin's since it opened ~ 10 years ago and then reopened after the fire. They really made the place look fantastic after the fire. It is more open now and the bar area is a huge improvement as is what was once dubbed "The Leopard's Lounge". However, for those reading and writing reviews you... More
