Nice atmosphere, great service and great happy hour. Dinners are over priced and the preparation is only average.

I almost hate to share this gem but clearly it is no secret at all. Food is 5 star. Chef Jeff is all that and more. Service is fabulous and variety is outstanding. Cocktails are always top notch.

So good, the pizza ....but try the soup trio and any appetizer or last time I had appetizer, soup, dessert. And that's not even mentioning the dinner selections, it's All good. A nice relaxed atmosphere, great food.

J Baldwin's is our special go to place for Anniversaries, Birthdays and Special Occasions. It is in close proximity to our house which makes it very convenient. J has a special recipe for an appetizer Calamari, that is both unique and out of sight.

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
