A Great Way to Enjoy Your Friends & Family

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... read 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

There aren't many places in North America in which to find Belgian cuisine. The Cadieux Cafe is one of the few. It's also a celebration of Belgian culture, Flemish and Walloon. The walls are decked with flags and crests, homages to bicycle racing, archery, and Belgian-American pride. Order the mussels. You can't go wrong. The portions are generous. Stuff yourself... More

The Belgium beer was good but over priced 8.75$ per bottle ! Muscles were a "Joke " tiny things things almost 1/2 of them flipped out of their shell & into the drink, very disappointing for nearly 20$. Only thing that was good was the service and the Pom frites ( frys) Will never return again. ! ! ! Seen... More

What's not to like about the home base of East Side Elvis? Great beer, good food, and feather bowling. You won't find a more unique joint for hundreds of miles in any direction. And they often have live music!

Cadieux Café has been around for years, I remember visiting ‘back in the day’. Don’t be hindered about the area. The parking lot is secure, the place rocks at night. Local bands, great Belgian beer on tap and of course THE Best Mussels around. The staff is very nice & knowledgeable in all areas of ‘the Café’. We have learned... More

We visited this restaurant on a rainy weekday and were surprised by the crowded parking lot and the 30-45 minute wait, but once inside we understood completely. Once seated the servers quickly took our order and brought our drinks and hot, fresh biscuits with 3 different kinds of fruit preserves. We barely got our biscuits buttered when our food started...

So this looks like a little hole in the wall place but there's so much more waiting inside. First, there's the feather bowling. Feather bowling is a very fun game and apparently Cadieux Cafe is the ONLY dedicated feather bowling place in the entire country. Yeah, it's fun. They've got a full restaurant and bar attached to the father bowling.... More
