An unexpected treat

The food was delicious, the menu varied and unique. While we had to wait a few minutes before someone noted we were waiting, once we were seated the service was friendly and attentive. Located in midtown just down the street from Wayne State University, inside Traffic Jam resembles an old country... read more

Good service, food was ok except for my son's fish that tasted like it was sitting at the bottom of the freezer for six months. My wife's corn ravioli was unmemorable.

After a wonderful evening in Detroit our group of 4 were hoping to head here for a late night dessert. Arriving at 1130pm we were shocked to find the doors locked. It is posted that the resturant closes at midnight. The staff decided to close their doors early, such a shame they lost our business tonight and in the future...

Decent beer from their own brewery, but unimaginitive and less-than-intriguing menu. All of our food was ok, but a disappointment when compared to the menu description. Pretty sure the waitstaff was high on something, seemed very out of it. With all the new and expanding restaurants in Detroit, you can find something much better for less money, such as Jolly...

Came here to sample the beer after a Motor City Brew Tour and stayed to sample the food. I had the huevos rancheros and my husband had the crab eggs Benedict. Huge portions of delicious food.

I hadnt been to Traffic Jam in years. My husband and I started and ended with appetizers. The chicken, black bean and cheese nacho was terrible. The waiter brought the nachos to the table covered in a white lettuce with tomatoes. The nachos were had no flavor and the cheese and black beans were cold. I couldn't even eat it,... More

Average food, OK beer, great staff in an odd setting. Off the beaten path a bit so street parking is available in addition to the lot across the street.

I've visited the restaurant several times and I'm still scratching my head as to how this is such a favorite choice with folks. For vegetarians this isn't a very veggie-friendly destination. The bar is also a bit lackluster and could use some new energy. The ongoing parking feud with the brewery across the street is also getting fairly tired.
