So goooood

Diner with a twist. Everything I tried was good, and my friends liked their food. Our service was good, and it was pretty crowded.

I've yet to have a poor experience here. Generous portions, interesting combos, tasty, friendly, easy service. Make sure to have the jam-of-the-day - always good. And now they have a bit of bar service - very good Bloody Mary.

They expanded this place, due to its popularity, perhaps that may be its downfall. Oh well. Great breakfast food , but the wait to get served and actually have your meal is almost crazy (perhaps they go foraging after the order?) and some of the wait staff have that trendier-than-thou thing going on. Maybe they should get ridiculed or something--... More

I spell "flavour" that way because I live in Canada. Anyway, I just adore this place. Service is good, there are so many unique flavour combinations on the menu, the decor is funky, and the music fits perfectly with all of it. My partner and I shared crab cakes appetizer. Yum. We both had the house red. I then had... More

We arrived on a Saturday morning and had an hour and a half wait. They make you line up in front of the bathrooms and you can't help but notice that the place is dirty and that things like paint/repairs/projects were half done and then abandoned. There was a waitress who visited the bathroom at least 5 times while we... More

Walked in the front door only to see a tacky sign stating to walk to the back and wait in line. Get to the back (after walking through a very tiny dining space) to find a long line by the washrooms and a back door. There was no staff managing the line and it was cold in the waiting area.... More

We have been going to the Fly Trap for a few years but mainly for breakfast. Now, they are open for dinner and although it's the same menu all day, we really enjoyed being there in the evening. We sat in the new area by the bar as it is sometimes cold by the front door. It has pretty bare... More

Fly trap... Words cannot describe the quality and explosion of taste buds of their food. Don't be mislead from the street view appearance, the character and quality of the staff and the value of the food makes this place an absolute must. Clean, friendly, and bang for the buck! Highly recommend for any date night or meeting up with friends... More

Had to sit in the freezing cold, with just a flimsy piece of plywood instead of a window. My meal was cold in minutes. Why did they open when the place is still not ready. Not going back.

Whenever we travel we try to check out a 3D's restaurant. So as we entered Michigan we checked out 'flavortown' on the web to find a restaurant. Mapped us to Ferndale. Right on the main drag. Waited about 20 minutes, but hey, we traveled over 5 hours to get here - what is 20 minutes. We sat at the counter.... More
