Sat at the bar and all the staff was very friendly. Food came out quickly and it's obvious why they win awards. The calamari was perfect and I'd definitely eat there again.

Awesome food, great service, always busy because of that. Want a quiet getaway dinner this is not the place. But fun noisy atmosphere makes it worth it

We met friends there, had a wonderful meal and great waiter, making our first experience at j Baldwin's a memorial evening. Everyone's food was delicious and cooked perfectly. The calamari was outstanding!

The food is gourmet; thoughtfully prepared American cuisine so delicious, I'm never disappointed. My daughter and I enjoyed healthy salmon dishes we found delicious. My husband also has his company Christmas party here and everyone enjoys the food and the atmosphere as it's very intimate. A wonderful selection of wine to accompany each selection. The staff pays attention to detail... More

I received a gift card for J BALDWINS at a charity event for Samaritan House. My husband and I live in Shelby Township and would never have found this fine restaurant. The wild mushroom soup was fantastic as was everything else we ate. We have already planned a second trip back but this time with our friends.

And the reason is, they know your name when you visit! Of anyone that has dined here the food is wonderful, the nights of entertainment they have is a perfect blend that makes the destination a "want to go there" place, but most of all, they all know who you are. Cheers to you guys : Brian, Jenn, Ash, Blain,... More

We made reservations but still had to wait 15 minutes (I guess that's better than the 1 hour wait ). Th only downfall is there is no where to wait. The bar is already 3 people deep all around. Once we got seated it was all forgotten. The food is delicious. I had the Lamb Chops, they were cooked perfectly.... More

We live very close and so sometimes just order a pizza to go, special occasions we dine in. Their filet is the ultimate best but quite pricey. You do get what you pay for however. Small assorted bread basket, usually just a piece per diner in the party, sides are usually generous and wine list is awesome. We belong to... More

We went here with our very good friends; no kids! The ladies indulged in a few glasses of sangria and said it was very good. The guys had a few beers...can't goof those up:) For dinner the ladies ordered chicken, I know my wife's dish was over the portabella ravioli...both said their dishes were very good. The guys both ordered... More
