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.

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.

Had been wanting to try Doug's out for a while because I had heard multiple decent reviews of the place.... I'm not sure where any decent review would come from. From dead flies in all the windows, to a almost none existent waitress to below par food quality... I'm sorry but I will not be returning. Even when leaving and... More

Food wasn't good . Waitress wasn't friendly and dead flys in the windows. Not just 1 , but many flies . There are better places to eat . The food was over priced.

Typical Bar & Grille fare prepared well and reasonably priced. Good service and a very good live band made for a fun evening with friends!
