​My Grandfather, Jim Brady, opened the original Diamond Jim Brady’s in 1954 on 7 Mile & Greenfield in Detroit. Along with my father, Tom Brady Sr., they spent their lives building relationships in our local communities by serving up the finest food and drinks with warm, authentic service. I am honored to carry on that tradition over 64 years later. Local People, serving Local Productsmade fresh every day in a place that has a relaxed, inviting atmosphere. Thank you for giving us the opportunity. -Tom Brady, Jr

We were there during a Michigan game and it was very loud and it has big screen TVs all over which add to the noise level. The food was OK but the service was not very good. People are short staffed so maybe that was part of the reason.

This experience did not go well. We know places are short staffed and try to be patient but when service goes sideways & food is not edible then things begin to not go well. Maybe next time???

Before Covid the food here was great. Post Covid is another story altogether.

Apps were bad. the chicken thigh skewers were tiny and dry. Either they were sitting under a heat lamp or were reheated. The Spanish octopus was chewy and tasteless. The ribs where boney with little meat. The tuna wontons were good.

Entrees weren't much better. The walleye special was mushy - I'm guessing it was frozen. The salad entrees were fine as was the fish and chips. The fries with the fish and chips were burnt.

Service was good.

We had an excellent meal at Jim Brady's Ann Arbor on 10/11/21. There were 4 of us catching up on each others lives. Our server, Rayna (?), did an exceptional job! She was friendly and upbeat. She made sure we had everything we needed and even gifted us with a fabulous carrot cake dessert. All of us loved the appetizers and entrees. We will definitely be back!

A group of friends who gather each year for homecoming went to Jim Brady’s after the game. It was our first time there and we all enjoyed everything about it except the noise level. There was a guy on a Mike somewhere who was very loud over an already loud scene and we couldn’t understand a word he was saying or why. We had to shout to each other to be heard. We otherwise loved everything about the experience.

Our experience was marginal. With the good ratings I expected better quality food and service.
The caesars salad had too much dressing. The salmon was not cooked well, although it was a large portion.
The service was scattered and sparse. I understand that staffing is an issue. If the food was better, I would overlook the service. Both were lack luster.
We will try this restaurant in a few months.

Sandwiches/burgers were good. Fries were cold. Bartender ignored us middle-agers with disposable income for younger folks that split an app and had one drink. Needs to read the bar better. We still tipped 20% +, but they could have done better keeping our drinks full.
