Fun and good food.

I agree with the person that said this should be higher on the trip advisor list. The menu is great and it's a fun environment. Order sweet potato fries!

Wonderful ambience. Wayne State employees know this is the perfect place for meetings. Large tables and banquet room available. Nice menu. Portions are large and beautifully plated. I usually order salads or fish and I am never disappointed. Free parking lot across the street. Near shopping and Shinola. I spent a nice afternoon window shopping and had a great dinner... More

This place has been around a really long time but I finally made it in. I was not disappointed. Food was excellent and a little different from the norm. Beer was good and I loved the decor.

What I liked most about this place was the specials menu because it is unique to Detroit and it is always changing. Many of the beers and ingredients of the food are made right there in Detroit which is nice and a breath of fresh air from many of the other places to eat in the area. We made a... More

After an afternoon concert at Orchestra Hall, TJ was a great choice for dinner. The parking lot across the street is a welcome option. We were seated immediately and although the place is very large, the sound level allows for easy conversation. My dining companion had the Ethiopian Platter and I had the Tex-Mex lentil burger--both very good. Sweet potato... More

Great location, awesome setting. The waitress was good but not very friendly, maybe having a bad day?? My daughter and I each ordered the pulled pork. The serving was way too big. Not a great take home meal as the bread was soggy. Would share for sure, if we went back. 4 of us each had dinner, 2 desserts and... More

Just started working in the New Center Area and have been exploring dining options. This was a treat! The veggie lasagna was terrific and service was exceptional...even during the lunch rush. I will definitely head back soon!

Love the decor and ambience. At first I was impressed and inspired. they brew beer, grow vegetables, make cheese and even their own tea. They were visited by Guy from the Food Network, all sounds great! Read the menu the night before going. Not wowed by much. Looked pretty generic except for an Ethiopian dish? Random. 2 of us settled... More
