Detroit residents know that Joe Muer is a name synonymous with the highest quality, freshest seafood.

Located in Detroit's iconic Renaissance Center, the menu features a delicious mix of nostalgic dishes and contemporary ones. Joe Muer Seafood also serves a nice little selection of sushi rolls.
The headquarters of Belgian culture in Detroit, the Cadieux Café has one of the first feather bowling alleys in the United States. The bowling alleys are concave and players roll huge wooden wheels and try to land closest to a feather. Tucked away in a residential neighborhood on the East Side, the Cadieux Café is also famous for its fabulous mussels, which are served in more than six different ways. The rest of the menu is typical pub grub and Belgian dishes, and the Old World decor and cheery atmosphere provide a good taste of Belgian bonhomie. It is recommended to book bowling lanes in advance, but it's almost as much fun to watch the old-timers bowl as to play yourself.
Simple and done right, step back in time at Scotty Simpson's Fish & Chips. The restaurant looks just as it did when it opened in 1950, and the same goes for the menu.

If you're in the mood for salty, greasy, fried goodness, you've found what you're looking for.
