“Some of the best soul food in Detroit!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

This is a local restaurant for me so I'm comfortable saying that it has some of the best soul food in the Detroit area. The food and service is excellent and consistent. I say that because Beans and Cornbread has been around for some time and continues to be a very popular restaurant. The place is not a very large but you usually can find seating or sit at the lounge bar which they opened several years ago. The atmosphere there being a soul food restaurant is not what you usually encounter a similar restaurants in a sense it leans to casual/formal dining but definitely not stuffy. And the prices are great too!

“The food is amazing!!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Recently, a group of 48 people dined at Beans & Cornbread Restaurant. We reserved the banquet room and it was amazing how we all got in there, but we did, serving station and all! The room is small and is a little outdated. With that being said, that was the only downside and the reason I rated "very good" instead of "excellent". NOW ....the food, one word......AMAZING! Kudos to Christine, LaTonya, Donya, Arys, Azal & Joy. They were fabulous in service and making sure that things went smoothly. Thank you so very much!!!!!!!! We are still talking on how tasty the food was. Hats off to all the cooks! catfish, mac and cheese, greens to die for! If you have plans to visit Detroit, don't leave without stopping by Beans & Cornbread. You may be a little cramped BUT give in to it for good eating!!!!!!!!!

“The only decent soul food restaurant in the NW Detroit suburbs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

The food is good but not outstanding. It's not greasy like you find at some other soul food restaurants. The worse part is waiting for a table. There's no space for people to wait so you're standing over people eating. The last time I went there were 4-5 empty tables with 4-5 parties waiting. There explanation was the tables were reserved. Finally, after about an half hour they seated some of the same people who were standing around waiting. The place seems too small. Unless you really want some soul food I would pick another restaurant for better ambience.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

My cousins took me to this place and the food and service were outstanding. I will go to this place every time I go to Detroit. Their needs to be more places like this to get a meal and also I had some healthy food. I would recommend this place and you will not be disappointed.
