    This Midtown family favorite has the right combination of reliable food staples and quirky eating environment to be one of the more approachable of Detroit's culinary institutions. [Eater 38 Member]

    The food, beer, and service is excellent. The place is perfect for parties and luncheons. All good is fresh and cooked to order at the restaurant.

    The Carlotta dessert is so delicious I feel no shame in devouring it. If chocolate and coffee are a weakness of yours, you will be in heaven. Promise.

    A fantastic American menu featuring bread, beer, cheese, and ice cream all made on site and vegetables grown on the roof! No meal is complete without their amazing Sweet Potato Fries.

    The Pork Loin Kamatsu salad was pretty tasty. Don't mistake those hot sauce jelly beans on the plate for tomatoes like I did and pop a whole one in your mouth!

    ask for the lentil patty on top of a mixed greens salad with the house dressing. its the best way to appreciate how flavorful it is without the bun getting in the way!

    Go to TJ's for dinner or a late night out; get the Jam Burger or Meatloaf and save room for amazing desserts. It's a microbrew too. My favorite meeting place in Detroit for many years. Read more

    I am sorry to say but this is THE WORST restaurant we have been to in Detroit! The food we ordered came out cold on the inside & dried up from sitting near heat lamps. The service was too slow.
