A hidden gem.

A beautifully decorated interior, in a bland complex. Amazing menu that could rival any of downtown Detroit's hot spots. Staff was professional and timely. We got the charcuterie plate and a wood fired pizza. Charcuterie presentation was top notch. Pizza couldn't have been better. Plenty of... read more

It was crowded. The table we were at was dirty. The whole area we were in was dirty. The food wasn't that great. First and last time going there.

this place is extremely over priced, food is awful. Burger and fries $18.00 $4.00 extra for the fries, soggy greasy limp fries. One waiter in the bar area, which we had to wait 20 minutes to get our bill. Beer came in a brandy sifter, 8 ounces, pita chips with cheese appetizers stale, super small portions, small place. Never again......................... More

Chef Jeff Baldwin and his entire staff are too notch! Everything is freshly made, no frozen food or microwaves here. Highly recommended the Ahi Tuna app or full dinner. Best I've had anywhere. Great for couples or family and friends. The bar area is open and inviting. Bar staff continues to be creative. I've not tried their catering, but reviews... More

We love to come into this little hidden neighborhood treasure. We love the salmon, beet salad, burgers pizza soup And many other idems. Our meal is not complete without our fav waiter Pat. He is helpful, friendly and always on point. The chef is also very considerate of my diet restrictions (gluten and dairy).

I have been going to J Baldwins for the past several years and it never disappoints. The calamari is unbeatable! Very little breading, lightly fried with a delicious lemon butter caper sauce. I would recommend this dish to everyone! The ahi tuna and the cedar plank stone fired salmon were also hits at our table. J Baldwins has such a... More

I'm really not sure how to rate Baldwin's We have dined here several times. Sometimes we are pleased and others not so happy with out dining experience. If you are looking for a quiet place to dine and have conversation, Baldwin's is not for you. The noise level is at the top of the scale. Baldwin's is a strange mix... More
