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... read 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

Okay, I didn't eat here so I cannot comment on the food. The place is "gritty" at best…old, run down, leaky roof and all. However, the feather bowling is fun!!! And where else can you go feather bowling… it's a fun night if you're in the area!

Cadieux Cafe is a bit run down inside and smells from the mussels they cook, but if you stay longer than 15 minutes you get used to the smell and don't even notice it. Feather bowling is a blast, typical bar but the food is awesome--Belgium dip and mussels are excellent as well as their dirty martinis. Definitely a unique... More

OK, 100 beers and terrific steamed mussels. What is not to like???? Well, add feather bowling which is simply a very weird game with no real purpose! Want to have some fun with friends, head here!
