“Great Homestyle Meals Cafeteria-Style”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

One must first consider the type of the place this is -- an old-school, cafeteria-style restaurant like those from my childhood (60's - 70's). Does it compare with fine-dining restaurants? Of course not, but for what it is Sign of the Beefcarver does it better than anyone else. Multiple selections sure to please everyone in the family, ample portions, and a pleasant and quiet atmosphere in which to dine. Roast beef and scrod are served everyday, with other entrees served on a rotating basis daily. Although a cafeteria, waitresses take your tray and drink to your table for you, and provide refills when needed. Staff was very nice and genuinely interested in taking care of customers.

“Seniors like this place”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

It's been in Dearborn forever and seniors seem to like this place. I don't usually think of dining there, even with my elderly mother, and I don't recommend it to others. That being said, it's still in business after decades there so it must have something going for it.

“If you like it????”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

Food is ok and the prices the same for a small amount of food in a cafe type of setting. I'll pass.

“Good Food at a Reasonable Price”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

This casual, cafeteria style restaurant is only one of two left of a chain and has been in business for many years. They specialize in carved roast beef, but also offer meat loaf, beef stew, roast turkey and dressing, baked stuffed chicken breast, baked fish and hot roast beef and turkey sandwiches among other entrees There are no fried foods. A nice touch is the condiment bar which offers free sliced beets, sliced pickles, horseradish, mayonaisse and various steak sauces. Waitresses carry trays to tables and refill beverages. Carry out is also available.

“Love It !!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

I have been going to the Beef Carver (Beef Eater) since I was about 10 years old
Thats about 50 years.
the one in Berkley.
I now go to the one in Dearborn.
Great Home cooked meals Cafiteria style,
I sit down to a great meal, and I'm amazed that it cost me about what I would pay
if I went to McDonalds.
Of Course there is no comparison. If you want Moms or Grandmas cooking go to the
Beef Carver. WE LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
