Stopped in while waiting to meet a friend later one Friday afternoon. It wasn't crowded. It was clean and the vibe was relaxed and friendly. Unfortunately they had already run out of the French Onion soup of the day. I opted for chili. It was really good! Ample free parking out front is a plus.

Food was good nothing spectacular. Service slow but ok. Place more of a bar than a sports bar. I might give them another shot when back in the area.

So disgusted with this place, I came here at around midnight with some of my coworkers after a long shift to grab a drink! Sat at the bar and bartender was great! Then we decided to make our way to the patio and were approached by a server who asked to see our i.d's "due to major incidents that have... More

Largest Ruben sandwich that I have ever seen. Must have had a half pound of corned beef on it. Bread was fresh baked and delicious. I wasn't prepared for so large a sandwich so I ordered fries also. I ended up with a to go box for half the sandwich. This place is within walking distance from the Metro airport... More

If you are ever in the vicinity of the Detroit airport and are looking for an exceptional place to eat the Wheat & Rye is your place. The food is outstanding and the amount of food that you are served is well worth the money. I had the Hot Pastrami sandwich/w fries and I couldn't eat it all. I give... More

Stopped on the way to the airport for a late lunch. Service was good and food took quite awhile to arrive, but we were not in a hurry. The sandwiches are massive and could easily be shared by two or three people. They have a full bar and several drink specials.

Our food was pretty good & came out fast but it took awhile for our waitress to bring menus & then we waited a good 25 mins after we finished eating to get our bill & that was only because we flagged her down. This was around 11pm so it was by no means the dinner time rush. I'd go... More

Hubby and I stopped in, on a recommendation from our hotel front desk staff. We wanted a place where the locals hang. And boy, do they! We went for dinner on a Thurs. Not too busy. Locals came in after work for drinks and friends. Atmosphere was friendly and felt like a small town bar. I ordered a cheeseburger; it's... More
