Classy Atmosphere

Happy hour is the best! Unique food choices offered. Later in the night a bit of live music. A nice change from the norm, makes a great date night.

Occasionally I will order a gluten free pizza as well. My favorite salad is the Kale Farro (but I have them leave out the Farro, due to gluten... More

This turned into a last minute couples night. I've been to J Baldwin's in the past but haven't been there since the remodel. Considering where this place is located, this place was hopping. We arrived around 6pm on Friday and needed to strategically protect for up to 4 more couples. As it turned out we were seated at a high... More

Saturday night dinner with a friend was wonderful. The best restaurant I've been to in SE Michigan. The food was unique and some of the best I've had in any restaurant, New York to Los Angeles. The service was top notch. Only complaint was that the restaurant is a little loud and crowded, but still a great evening. The calamari... More

By all means, take your spouse or significant other here to celebrate this important day. We dined on walleye and salmon. Both were excellent. Tom, our server, was very attentive. Brian, the sommelier, was insightful and informative. Chef Jeff came by to insure our dinner was they way we wanted it.
