Went as a group of 5 colleagues from around the US. We started with feather bowling and had a ball. Then stayed for dinner and enjoyed great food (sandwiches to dinners) and beverages. Open mic night for entertainment. Couldn't believe all the people there for a Tuesday night. Make reservation if Feather bowling to ensure lane available.

Featherbowling is a blast with at least 5 other people, you can rent both lanes if you have 12+! Can't wait to go again!

Cadieux Cafe is an old neighborhood feather bowling league and bar. It's next to East English Village, the old Belgian area of Detroit. If you have never feather bowled then you are in for a treat. Stop by, grab a bucket of mussels or burger and brew. Live bands on weekend.

We were recently here for a family reunion. I heard the food was great but didn't eat anything myself. The feather bowling was interesting! I had never played before and thought it looked like a blast!

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
