​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

    Mediocre food and drink. Cold food and very salty. Disappointing as it is an Ann Arbor staple. Food took forever, apps and salads came out with entrees and the fish was overcooked.

    Our family of 3 had the most amazing dinner! We were not actually expecting anything so amazing from what we thought was a typical burger joint. The Brussels sprouts were the best we’ve ever had, the burgers fantastic, fish tacos OUT OF THIS WORLD, and the chocolate dessert was truly, again, the best we’ve ever had. This was all served up by the nicest, helpful, easy going waiter. And I accidentally left my credit card at the table and he ran down the street to find us to give it back to me. We loved everything about our experience there.

    Not a great dinner, 3 people, 3 dinners and one appetizer. Drinks are small pours, martini in a small coupe glass, rocks gin didn’t even cover half of the ice. Tuna appetizer was good. Steak dinner was medium not medium rare, green beans were very good. Hamburger was the best dinner medium rare & great. Whitefish was disappointing, scampi sauce was thick like a moray sauce, pesto pasta was very dry. Will not go back.

    Best thing about Jim Brady's is the beer & cocktail list; they have a great selection of very creative cocktails and a solid craft beer list. The appetizers, sandwich/burger, and entrée choices are excellent. I ordered the Bad Axe Burger medium; it was cooked perfectly and very juicy. My husband ordered the Charlie Brown; it was similarly cooked as requested and flavorful. My daughter ordered the Rigatoni. She enjoyed her meal as well and actually took part of it home, i.e., the portion size was very large. Prior to dinner we started with the whipped Ricotta + Bread and crisp Brussel sprouts; both were amazingly good. We were seated promptly for our 6 pm reservation. The restaurant has TVs on the walls which were playing various college football games while we there. My family & I didn't mind the background noise from the TVs, but I mention this in case you're looking for a quiet more "intimate" dining experience. The sound wasn't too loud, but the vibe is more "sports bar" energy than quiet & reserved.

    Back to school dinner with my kids. Food was ok. Service was slow. I had to ask for silverware and refills. DO NOT GET THE FRENCH DIP. tasted like old overcooked lunch meat. It was bad. Other food was good though. The octopus appetizer is really tasty.

    The drinks were GREAT! However we came for dinner and the food was wholly unimpressive. Tuna Wontons were like the kitchen sink of asian ingredients on a crisp. The marinara for the rigatoni tasted like a can of stewed tomato with a huge dollop of herbed yet flavorless ricotta. We didn’t stay for dessert

    Great food and great service. Our waitress Ashley was outstanding. Sitting outdoors it did get slightly loud from the live music down the street, but still worth enjoying the weather outside. The food was great, both the Salmon sandwich and the New York Strip.
