Sometime wary of food served by museums but this was a real surprise. Fresh trout! Delicious, but would have preferred it without kumon. Friendly staff.

If you’re in the museum and need lunch, this is a decent choice. Food was fine. They bring it on a tray after you order. They also clear the tables, but they were really running behind when we were there. The downside is that there...More

First of all, ordering our food took a very long time. The hostess sent us to the cashier one family at a time. They have you place your order with the cashier and pay. They give you your drink cup and you have a seat...More

Tried to decide which of the 3 options in the museum to go to for lunch. We ended up here. Selection was ok. We went about 2:30. It wasn’t crowded. Dining room was about 1/3 full. Lady that took our order was very unpleasant, very...More

In between visiting the factory tour and the Greenfield Village, we had lunch at the Michigan Cafe and was quite surprised by the quality of the food. After ordering at the cashier, you found a table and waited for your pager to go off. Our...More

You order, are given a beeper and food is brought to you. This works well in room where chairs and tables are casually rearranged to suit the size of the group. We enjoyed rainbow trout, trout salad and hummus. Somewhat disappointed in the length of...More

Yes, you can. As you enter the museum you choose what you want to see: the indoor museum only, the outdoors, the 3D movie (optional). Then you can walk in and go into some stores and restaurants, which are not included in... More
