This was my third and last trip to this "soul food" restaurant. We were going to check out Sweet Magnolias right across Northwestern but they weren't ready for their soft opening as advertised on local news. What can I say: Shrimp and grits were pathetic and highly overpriced. Hoppin Joe was boring. Catfish was bland and I've had better greens... More

The service was prompt and friendly. I liked the open kitchen effect. They explain the dishes if you didn't know what they were and talked to you about the city.

Great service, meaty ribs. Good pricing Try the sweet potatoes muffins. Not a large seating area, often crowded. Not usually a long wait though. Grab a drink while you wait.

I dine there frequently because the food is great. Whether it is catfish, meat loaf or fried chicken it's good. The specials are outstanding. greens or beans or coleslaw are also tasty.

The food is absolutely AMAZING!!! Be sure to ordered the Sweet Potato muffins.... Manna DIRECTLY from Heaven!! The greens melted in your mouth. I loved that the pork chop was fried hard, just like my Grandma used to do. I barely made it to the hotel before I black out in a food induced coma. Every time I'm in the... More

This place fit me in and even though I wasn't dressed fancy their service was top notch. I could not say enough about the service at this restaurant. Loved the food and can't wait to go back again.

Excellent southern cuisine. Its a little hard to write this review because I am so full and satisfied. Highly recommended on your next trip. Worth the drive from anywhere in Detroit.

Thank Robert N
