I came here during my lunch break. I ordered the Reuben with corned beef and it was decent. It was extremely hot, making me sweat when I eat whilst burning my mouth. Hot as in high temperature, not spicy (though it was a bit spicy). In addition, the wait for the food was long, about 20 minutes, which is understandable... More

We had lunch at Mudgie's yesterday after having seen Brian Wilson at the iconic Fox Theater the night before. Mudgie's has really good reviews and they are mostly deserved. There were three of us: I had a sandwich on the specials sheet - a double smoked ham the was quite good but a little on the skimpy side with the... More

When everyone at the table (there were four of us) thinks that his/her order was the best, you know that you are in a good restaurant. The two soups that they offered that day: beer/cheese soup and lentil soup were both excellent. The sandwiches were big but filled with nice flavors. The wines and beers lists were extensive and the... More

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
