“Just OK food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is a place that is at the far end of The Henry Ford museum and it is just OK food. I had a salad which was pretty big and my husband had a pita sandwich which was OK. Not enough dressing was given for the salad, lots of greens and it dried out because of the lack of dressing.

“Quick Meal, Nice Choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

There were plenty of choices and I especially liked the Grilled Chicken Salad with Dried Cherries and Walnuts. The dressing was delicious and tasted homemade, and the salad was definitely enough to make a meal out of. There is so much to see and do at the Henry Ford that you don't want to waste time waiting to be served in a restaurant, so this is the perfect place to eat.

“Great for cafeteria food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

I try to be a realist in my TripAdvisor reviews and ratings. Given that this is a cafeteria, I would say the food is excellent--as cafeteria food goes. Amongst cafeterias, this should be considered one of the best in the area. I work close to the museum and my co-workers and I go to this cafeteria just because the food is good--especially the more homestyle foods, desserts and ice cream. The cafeteria fare (hot dogs, hamburgers, etc.) is, well, cafeteria fare. Don't forget, they offer Guernsey ice cream!

Are there better restaurants in the Dearborn area? Definitely! Is this one of the better cafeterias around? For sure!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

It is a cafeteria but the salads were very good and they had house-made potato chips that were very enjoyable. It is well set up.
