But it was great. Tried the fresh local sausage and it was great. (Instead of charging .50 extra for it, why not just raise prices .50 for sausage and eliminate alternative. People shouldn't miss out on that deliciousness over a few cents.) Country ham was wonderful, eggs cooked perfectly and the most generous pour of orange juice I've seen in... More

This place came recommended as the best local spot that is not a chain. "Bar & Grill" should have been a clus for us to stay away. It is more a bar that serves food - greasy food. Over Med eggs where over cooked. Sausage patties were greasy. Scrambled eggs were dry. So much for a good breakfast.

Great value for your beverage dollar and extensive hours. Staff was friendly and so were the local guests. Great spot to watch a game!

Locally recommended. They serve breakfast until 2pm. We ordered breakfast food and it was excellent. Typical home cooking and lots of it. Taking to go boxes home. It's not fancy inside but it is comfortable.

Stopped in for breakfast, was not disappointed. Good portions, good price. The breakfast menu had lots of choices. I wish, though, they corn beef hash. Service good, but slow. Looking forward to coming back.

Had several friends go to Motor City for breakfast. Everyone enjoyed a delicious, plentiful meal. Eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage, hash browns, and hot coffee all excellent. Service was exceptional as well. Will be back for sure.

We had so much fun at Motor City the first night, that we went back for lunch the next day too. The food was good, the beer was cold and the waitresses awesome.

In town on business for the next 3-6 months so everyone at work says try Doug's Motor City. Since I'm staying across the street figured hey let's try it. Tried it twice to be honest. First time, seen the parking lot wasn't crowded so I wanted some breakfast. Sat down waited and waited and waited. Got the waitress drop off... More

A local told us to make sure we ate breakfast here at least once during our stay. Located near the Harley Davidson dealership, the parking lot was packed when we pulled up. It doesn't look like much but the food was outstanding! Walk in and seat yourself, within minutes here came the coffee. We had a delicious full breakfast that... More

I had read good and bad reviews and decided to try. They were all correct. Food good. Service slow. Flies on windowsill. Floor cement and not clean. Not for us.
