We ate lunch at all three restaurants in the Museum and this was the best value. One of our party ordered the mac and cheese, she brought enough home to feed all of us for dinner.

It is always nice to visit this place after a wonderful afternoon at the Henry Ford. I love the homemade dinners that include sides. It's nice to get a nice hot dinner type meal or just a snack. They have something for everyone .

This restaurant is located inside the Henry Ford Museum, and we ate lunch here while visiting the museum. We ate early around 11am, and I'm glad we did, because the line was out the door when we left shortly after 12pm. They have a much...More
