Had the salmon burger which was great, and my family had the cheese steak sandwich which had real cuts (thick) of sirloin steak, not steakums grilled up. Both were very good. Nice to try something different. Good location on Woodward with open air windows too.

I visited with my husband and three kids ages 16, 14, 12. They have a lot of good vegetarian choices. The menu has lots of unique foods, but not a lot of choices for a picky eater that loves plane food. The cook did accommodate my son with chicken and rice without seasonings. Service was friendly, and environment was clean.

We eat here several times a week simply because it's some of the best food around at a great price. The staff is great and always very helpful...even when we order our large carry-out orders for 5-15 people. The food is always fresh and cooked perfectly. They also have some great vegan options…I highly recommend the Huevos Rancheros Vegan Style(plus... More

I'd just first say express how wonderful this place and food is! The majority of the staff are on top of it and seriously rocks it out. I was floored and impressed by Matt and Brandon as they hussled to get a line of waiting guests in. However, the bartender Shannon working there did poorly when dealing with my sister... More

A lovely drive on Woodward Avenue to The Fly Trap for breakfast. We sat at a table in front of their open window. Garlic potatoes complimented roasted vegetables in scrambled eggs, so yummy. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. Can't wait to go back.

Adriane was our server/bartender. She had lots of suggestions and knows the menu well. Remember that this is a diner, so sitting at the counter shouldn't seem like a setback.... He had a salmon burger and I had fire breathing dragon, a delicious combo of warm sliced and spiced chicken alongside some cooled flat wheat noodles (similar to Japanese cold... More

Decent service, great food, large portion sizes. Go early to ensure they don't run out of your favorite fish. Give it a try

We were pretty hungry after walking around the Henry Ford Museum so decided on the Fly Trap. Had to get the Green Eggs and Ham and the Red Chili Salmon Burger. Both were great tasting. Guy sampled the green eggs; that's all we could get out of the server.
