Cliff Bell's

Welcome to Cliff Bell's, where a truly unique dining and entertainment experience await you. As soon as you step through our doors, you'll take a step back in time. The 1930's charm of the lavish, art-deco interior will have your friends talking for hours.  



The relaxed, welcoming atmosphere sets the mood for a night not to be forgotten. Signature cocktails and dinner are ordered as the Jazz trio begins to play on stage. The quiet bustle of the club begins to come to life!



Cliff Bell's is once again alive with spirit and song. But don't take our word for it…. Discover this cultural gem for yourself during an evening of jazz and dinner, Sunday brunch, daily lunch, or our popular happy hour.



"The place to be in Detroit."

"This is my third year coming for brunch for my birthday celebration. I always enjoy the food, entertainment & service! I am crazy about the cinnamon rolls & was very disappointed that they were not on the menu. My mouth was watering all week thinking about my birthday cinnamon roll. Please bring them back for my birthday in late January 2017!"

"Cliff Bells should be a heritage site, it is a lovely place, but that's where it ends. The price list has increase at least $10 - $15 per plate over the past year. Come on - a chicken dinner for $30 US at a bar? When we arrived it was happy hour and there were no tables in the bar area to order food so we were told that' people coming for dinner shouldn't expect happy hour prices.' End of story. no compromise when we had to sit in another part of the restaurant. The food was ok, nothing special. presentation of the food was average. Wine list was wanting, and overpriced. Waiter was very good, but he was taking his cue from the overbearing manager not to accommodate our special requests. Too bad. We won't be going back soon, nor will we recommend."

"Wasn't thrilled to have to pay $20 a person to walk in the door, before eating or drinking a thing. Food was mediocre. Service was too. If you're into loud live jazz, I guess you might enjoy a drink. Wouldn't recommend. Sorry"

"I have enjoyed Cliff Bells several times, but at this last visit it was obvious they have increased their attention to the food. Their chef did a great job on the turkey wings appetizer and the shrimp & grits I ordered, and the others at my table agreed it was some of the besgt food we have been served there. With the great atmosphere and music, this is a must-see!"

"We didn't know what to expect when we made reservations but we were delighted with the outcome. The atmosphere was very laid back and relaxed and the jazz was amazing. My husband had the shrimp and grits; while I enjoyed the swordfish. We split the wedge salad and for dessert we had the cheesecake which was absolutely out of this world. Our only compliant was the tables were very close together and it was difficult to have a conversation. Other than that, it was a wonderful evening and a great dining experience."

"We went to Cliff Bell's for the first time for a Sunday brunch and were very pleased. The music was pleasant, the old time feel was comfortable and the food was great. Our server had a few too many tables, but was attentive even so. When we mentioned that it was our anniversary, he brought out a little surprise dessert. We'll be going back for sure."

"Have gone to annual holiday music event featuring James Carter and the Hot Club od Detroit with group of friends for three years in a row. Food was excellent previous visits. Food was mediocre and disappointing this time. For $32 I would like to get more than a piece of bland fish wrapped in a banana leaf. Mussels appetitzer was overcooked and tough and the broth was tasteless. Bread, which had to be requested, was toasted hours before, cold and tasteless. Others entrees ranged from bland to good (shrimp & grits). Deserts were forgettable. I ordered bread pudding which tasted like chunkc pf bread covered in an overly sweet orange sauce. Won't eat their until I hear food has improved. Drinks and music were excellent!"
