This is a great restaurant that has been around for many years. My father grew up close by and it brings back fond memories of grand city prior to Coleman Young. You must try the mussels. Order a couple buckets and then go and watch feather bowling. It has a tasty menu and good beer

Well here I am again, walking in the parking lot of a restaurant and red flags are waving high and mighty. The dumpster needs a grenade and proper burial..it reeked so bad I had to fight off urge to jump in my car and get the hell out of there. Entering the front door I noticed the windows hadn't been...

This tiny restaurant has bands play in the evenings, and one of the very best is Super Crunch. A tight jam band that has a really difficult time getting all of their gear in the super compact stage in the corner, this is an evening worth relishing... at least if you're into this kind of thing!

As Belgian, visiting Detroit for a gathering with distant relatives, a stop at Cadieux café is almost an obligation. What a nice experience. This café is so Belgian, you rarely find one of these in Belgium any more. A nice collection of Belgian beers, plenty of pictures about Belgium, live music and even the possibility to practice featherbowling.

So, the food here is ok (I don't eat mussels, which is the primary food selection). The hot wings were pretty good, and the roast beef dip was tasty. But, you don't go there for the food, you go there to bowl. I did not know what the bowling was. My brother's 40th was happening and we reserved both lanes... More

I had heard so much about this place and I was very disappointed in the food. Now mind you, I don't eat fish, and they are noted for their mussels. I had the cheese sandwich and the bread was dry and too thick. My companion had the chicken sandwich and he said it was dry. Another couple had fish and... More

Went here with our two boys (10 and 12) and grandfather - all had a great time. First, the feather bowling - no, we did not have a clue, but it was easy to learn and easy for everyone to participate. There is a sign that says "no bowlers under 12" but no one said anything to our 10 year... More

Better call before you go for all-you-can-eat mussels on Mondays. We went and were told they had a new supplier and couldn't get enough for all-you-can-eat. Broth is watery and not very garlicky with no aromatics for flavor. Bread for dipping is basic white bread, not toasted and warm like it really should be. Salad is basic... Over priced and... More

Been once before years ago...went back yesterday and and had full dinners. All I can say is "try the mussels"!! Amazing!! Many flavor combinations but all were delicious. Our table had 4 different kinds and everyone loved their choice. To top off your night, you must try the feather bowling. You need reservations pretty far in advance; weekend nights full... More

I first visited the Cadieux Cafe in 1978 when I was 18 years old. What an awesome neighborhood bar in Detroit it was, although my friends and I were certainly the misfits in the largely over 65 crowd at the time! We've been back many times over the years, most recently on February 8, 2015. Nothing - and I mean... More
