This is by far my favorite place in Detroit. The food and service is amazing! They have an awesome lobster roll that doesn't last very long. But the lobster is to die for!

Will definitely visit again. The tempeh with mushroom gravy and the "catfish" platter were both winners. Casual atmosphere. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly.

Persons in my party ordered the Hippie Dippie (vegetarian/vegan), the Jerk the Brooklyn sandwiches, cole slaw, potato, balsamic bleu salads. The Hippie Dippie, cole slaw and potato salads were good. The remaining food was okay. I do believe it is over priced for the quality of the meal.

Living in the suburbs I don't often think of dining in Detroit. However Detroit has come alive with new restaurants and this is one of them. It is a charming restaurant set in an old house. The food is delicious. There is seating indoors and outdoors. We went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We ate outside on the patio.... More

This restaurant has amazing sandwiches and two great patios. We have sat both inside and outside. Inside is loud. Unfortunately both times the wait for our food has been painfully long. Wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt but on both occasions it took close to an hour to get our sandwiches. Probably wouldn't have bother me too... More

It's tucked away and doesn't look like anything special but it is. Fantastic food and atmosphere. Loved it. Helpful and experienced waitstaff. You had me at bread pudding.

Stopped here for lunch. The place has a lot of very cool architectural details. Charming. The exterior is a bit rough, but has lots of potential. There is outdoor seating. The hostess was rather lacking. She just asked "how many?" grabbed the menus and expected us to just follow her. We did, but usually they add a few words indicating... More

Here's another YES vote for Mudgie's. Took my team there for lunch today. Three of us got the Honey Bee - so good. The "chicken fajita salad" is made like a regular chicken salad - bite sized chicken pieces in a mayo dressing - but the dressing is fajita spiced. Great idea. One person had the Guttie and cleaned his... More

This week is lobster week (7/24/16 - 7/30/16). The traditional lobster rolls are only served one week a year. Excellent! Excellent! And, excellent! Expect a line out the door this week. The roast beef, spinach and bleu cheese sandwich is excellent too. Newly added bar is a good addition. Excellent service.
