    Our reservation was at 4:15 pm. Our table of 4 consisted of 2 adults and 2 small children (which includes an infant). One of which was to celebrate her 7th birthday. We did received one meal at 5:40 p.m. and the other at 6:00 p.m. which was a SALAD. No, the restaurant was not crowded, the service was slow and awful! I ended up not receiving my meal and the manager indicated he would remove it from the bill... remove what from the bill... I did not receive any food!

    Way too expensive! They add on an additional 30% to your bill. Did not get our drinks until after we finished dinner. Service was slow, food took a while to get and the music was way too loud for me.

    The service was stellar! Onas was our server and he was awesome! He surely is great with people and attentive. He made sure our son enjoyed his birthday experience and gave a great milk shake recommendation and ensured our food was brought to us in a timely fashion! Thank you Sugar Factory for having him onboard! He makes Detroit look GREAT!! Also thank you to Troy who came by to check on us and say hello! He worked in unison with Onas to deliver the best experience ever!!

    The customer service was good only thing I did not like was the long wait time even if you have a reservation. I waiting over 20 -30 minutes past my reservation. My food was not hot it was lukewarm.

    I have been to 3 sugar factories in different states, and this is by far the worst one I have ever been to. The bathrooms were very dirty. The handles to the sink were broke. There was no paper towels and toilet paper all over the floor. The overall appearance of the restaurant was very dirty. The the waiter that I had was not attentive at all forgot to bring napkins and other condiments . She kept saying she was sorry and she will go get them, and just never came back . My son had a piece of hair in his water, and it was like they didn’t even care. They just switched out to a different cup. This sugar factory is making other sugar factories look bad, and I hope that they close it down soon. If you want to experience the sugar factory, I do not recommend you do it here in Detroit go to Chicago or elsewhere skip the sugar factory in Detroit trust me. I understand that we are behind instead because of the pandemic but as an owner or a manager if you notice that the people in your establishment are bringing it down especially if it is a brand new place there is a need to step in and higher new people. My only reason for coming to the sugar factory was so my son can experience it because I had such a great experience out of town so many times, but this experience really just blew me. Idk maybe it was a busy Sunday but it is has left me with a horrible impression, and I will not be returning.

    Beware the bill already includes the tip which isn't mentioned by the hostess or waitstaff. Service was slow. Other tables got served before ours even though my party for four was seated sooner. Prices were very high for kids shakes and meals. Higher than the adult meals depending on what you ordered. Atmosphere was fun and lively. It was a "one and done" kind of visit for us. Fun for kids to do something different but don't plan on returning.

    It was three at our table, we ordered our drinks and food at the same time. Our food came out first, it was okay,I had the Turkey Burger, my daughter had black bean Burger, and cousin had the sugar factory Burger.. we was not impressed, still no drinks.. we was told the bar was backed up... finally my daughters drink arrived,15 mins later my drink arrived, then maybe 10 mins later my cousin's drink came. The drinks, for the price were very weak. Service was very slow, food was okay.. however,I don't have to go back. I will say I've been to the Sugar factory in Orlando Florida, and they were very good.. detroit needs to get it together. I want to really give a good rating, but right now I can't.

    I wouldn’t recommend for a family. Vulgar music is played. The food wasn’t hot because the whole staff was to busy singing happy birthday and doing dance routines a million times which made my bun soggy. The drinks were sour. Over priced, no changing table in the restroom. Just bad

    I was seated at a good time, but our waiter had to wait on several tables which made us have to wait a long time for drinks and food. The food wasn’t hot it was cold, but it wasn’t bad. The alcoholic drinks taste like non-alcoholic drinks. The music gets really loud and you have to yell across the table to place your order. Also I was overcharged tremendously, after they kept sending food to our table that wasn’t ordered that we would then reject and we were still charged for it. Tone down the dancing and partying and try to deliver a better service then entertaining

    We came in and our table had nothing set up on it. They sat my group of 4 on a table that fits 8 and were seperating and setting up the tables as we were eating. They brought our food and we had to ask for silverware to eat with because they didn’t provide any. The cheesecake was not good at all and the cookie skillet came rock hard and cold. The hot coffees came cold as well. The plates and everything were plastic which made everything feel cheap… which doesn’t align with the price. This was not worth it at all!

    Ordered a burger which was fair. I think this will be a situation where you order new things each time you dine for different experiences! Focus more on sugary milkshakes/drinks than food and you’ll be good!

    They didn't have a few of the drinks, and what the did have cost a fortune. We didn't eat because we read the reviews ahead of time. The tables had leftover that had barely been touched. No one around us looked like they liked their food. I really don't see this place lasting long here.

    The food was pretty decent and ambiance was good. They really need to work on time management and customer service. I had a 5pm reservation and was not seated until close to 6pm. When I got to the restaurant around 4:45 the hostess whom was wearing everything she felt in her face informed me to come check in at 5pm. So once 5pm came I went back and there still wasn't a table available. I really feel there should be a time limit at the tables because of the high traffic they have. Its ok to limit guests to a certain amount of time to keep the flow going. Overall, with improvements on these items the restaurant will be amazing.

    Grumpy staff, a wait with empty tables, food quality was poor and it was expensive! We ordered one nonalcoholic punch bowl drink ($30 for juice) and the fondue. Fondue was consistency of hot cocoa but it wasn’t hot at all. Cakes that came with were dry. Delivered to table without silverware.

    There were some hiccups but overall it was ok. The food was okay. We attended brunch. I was given the wrong omelet. Entrees were brought out one at a time and far apart. But they did good for being short staffed. They waitresses were nice. But I would give it another try.
