I ordered salmon topped with gumbo; food was served lukewarm. Salmon was dry and overcooked. Gumbo was mostly sauce with only a few pieces of meat or vegetable. Cornbread was dry and so were the mini sweet potato muffins - and very small pieces. I lived in the South for 17 years and the food served here was southern in... More

My husband and I often travel to the Detroit area to visit family, and when we do, we always try to make it over to Beans & Cornbread. Nothing like this in the lily white part of Northern California where we live. The atmosphere is so convivial and welcoming, and the food is first rate. I especially love the collards... More

I enjoyed eating here but can't seem to get others to join me for a meal or drinks and snacks. Not sure why. The food has always been good.

We have been going to Beans and Cornbread for years and have enjoyed the food. Today's lunch was great for the husband (catfish and sides) but not so great for me. The normally delicious shrimp and grits was sub par as the grits were undercooked, lumpy and had no flavor. The bigger issue was that, for the second time in... More

The food here is delicious and the service is great! I asked my waitress if she and the other servers were related. They worked together so well that it felt like I was dining at a family establishment. They even had live music.

I checked this place out after hearing about it from a friend. I took my mother here for dinner as us southern women love soul food. The food was phenomenal southern quality. The only complaint is the restaurant is very tiny, they need to expand considering the food is so good. They had a private room and a bar. I... More

Nice place for happy hour or if you want to have a family dinner. The management team and wait staff are always pleasant. Food is also good too. I would recommend this place to any one looking for a happy hour spot or good soul food.

We just got home from one of our favorite places for southern food in the suburbs, Beans and Cornbread, in Southfield, Michigan. Its always predictably good. They start with a nice warm basket of cornbread and sweet potato muffins that are hard to resist. My favorite meal are the Salmon croquettes, tender, moist and more than I can eat. I... More

The food was just okay and doesn't taste like real soul food. It was average at best. The food was pretty bland and had no real spice to it. I went a second and third time trying different things to see if that would change my views and it didn't not at all.

This place is unpretentious with fast courteous service. I had the ribs with collard greens and fries. The ribs were tender but stayed on the bone. The collard greens were terrific. I can't wait to go back!
