B.D.'s is a great chain. I got hooked on them in the Detroit, Michigan area. It is a build it yourself Mongolian Grill place. They have a menu with set items, a salad and soup bar, and the best part - a large number of...meats, pasta, and vegetables to build it yourself a great meal.More

This was my first time. It was very busy. I made a reservation for a table but was asked if I would take a high top table. We agreed to the high top table. We were not waited on right away. I’m sure the reason...was because it was very busy when we arrived. The food was great. But, the most important was the waitress that had the most charming and bubbly personality. Her kindness and charm made up for the lack of tending to us right away. I complimented her on the restaurant’s soup and asked for the recipe. She was very nice in getting it for me and writing it down for me to take home. She even gave me the phone number for the restaurant in the event I had questions to ask her about the recipe. We will definitely return and are sure to ask for Chloe.More

Food was good, service was less than desirable. Waitress was bothered by having to serve us. I don't blame the food but the service was not good. She brought our drinks about 15 minutes after we started eating, she brought the rice about 5 minutes...after we started eating. I wasn't happy but my wife asked me not to make a scene. I did tell her she might want to think about another career.More

Went in for hubby's birthday and boy have things changed. Prices have gone up, you now pay more for your meal if you also have soup and salad, and they are now very strict about your uneaten food going home with you. All that being...said still a good restaurant in which to dine, choose your own proteins, vegetables and spices. Last visit my food was burnt but this time it wasn't and the proteins were all very fresh, the sauce table was clean and the vegetables well stocked. All in all a very good meal, very good service and brought home enough for a late night snack.More

The only drawback to this kind of place is you never feel you eat enough for the price. The food was excellent and it's fun to watch them cook it. You get to choose your own ingredients and that's a big plus. They do however...need to work on the salad bar; that was very lacking especially for someone who likes more that tomatoes and cukes on their salad.More

Back in town and always must dine here. Went in, seated immediately in the bar area. Apparently there was only one server working at that time; NO management, baryender also waiting tables and one person on the grill. Service was rather slow because our server...had to also make drinks and tend bar. The beer cheese soup was amazing but the croutons were stale and inedible. The salad bar was poorly stocked and in need of being cleaned up. The cucumber slices were actually frozen but the mandarin oranges were delicious. The protein bar was not well stocked but the new chicken flavor was super delicious and the shrimp were no longer the very small salad shrimp. The beef and pork were both tough to chew after being cooked and the meatballs were dry. Apparently the grill was too hot because both of my plates of food were burnt and when I complained our server said the grill definitely needed turning down because my food had been on the grill too long and was burnt. Based on the number of prople dining while we were there, I can understand the lack of servers and grill cook but the rest of the problems are totally unacceptable and unexpected and disappointing. Come on management, get your act back together, clean up your act and give us back the amazing service, foods and pleasant dining experience we are accustomed to.More

First Mongolian BBQ I’ve been to in central Florida, I grew up going to these types of restaurants since my dad was stationed in Okinawa when I was 5yrs old. The experience was different but good from my usual. Being sat took the regular few...minutes (party of 7). The server going over the menu and instructions was good, but missed the fact that 2 in our party were kids under 11 and we were unaware of a kids menu until after they went through the Mongolian line. Stayed on top of our drinks and regularly touched the table. Prices were typical of the same niche restaurants I’ve been to when traveling, service was on par and location was in a great shopping centre with other stores and restaurants to visit and see after our meal. We will be back next time we are in the Lakeland area.More

I decided to try this place on a business trip and was pleasantly surprised. I sat at the bar since I was alone and had great service. The Mongolian BBQ bar wasn’t the best I’ve had, but it was solid and checked all the boxes....I’d definitely go again.More

So happy to stumble across another Michigan favorite restaurant. If you’ve never been here. It’s MUST! You get a bowl and fill it with all your favorite goodies and have the grill master cook it for you. Only YOU have the blame if it doesn’t...taste good. Keep it simple and you can’t go wrong. Love this place and will be back many more times to get my Mongolian Grill fix.More

WORST restaurant ever. Waitress came out one time then I had to go inside twice to get my own things such as drinks. I am a server as well so I always try my hardest to keep my customers happy but she didn’t care or...anyone else in there. We stood up for a couple minutes in the front no one asked if we needed anything or why we were standing they just walked right past us. Worst food AND service.More
