I love Beans and Cornbread. I have been eating here for years. The staff is very friendly, the service is great and the food is excellent. If I want to just relax and unwind, they have a bar area if you want to go and have a cocktail after work as well as a full dining area. The restaurant is... More

Cornbread was average,as other reviewers have noted. Overall our party enjoyed the food. Server was nice. 18% tip shouldn't have been on top of tax but oh well,... More

Two girlfriends and I met here for a long chatty lunch and we all loved the place. I had the Louisiana Gumbo Salmon and it was delish. Would definitely return.

Atmosphere very nice. The manager, Mike stopped by to check on our table and welcomed us to Southfield. Good portion sizes. Will definitely return when in the area again. Left feeling... More

Went for my friends birthday day after Christmas and I guess the cooks were tired. My girlfriend and her family had never been here before and I talked them up from previous visits. We were all disappointed with the taste and selections offered on brunch buffet I more than them as I've been here before and everything was wonderful. One... More

Wow first time in this place and loved it. I have a gluten allergy but still had a perfect meal. I had the ribs. They were very good. I was with a couple friends and they could not quit talking about how great there Gumbo was. SO you have to stop in, you won't be disappointed. Service was good.
