    So overrated and overpriced! The music was so loud you could barely talk to each other. The food was ok but the service was horrible. They were out of so many things (certain shakes, steak, regular vodka,etc). They charged a $30 service fee. We were there for a birthday and they asked if we wanted a free scoop of ice cream for the birthday person. Then asked if we wanted the sparkler type thing put in it and said it would be $5 to add it. definitely will not be going back. I have been to the one in Chicago and it was awesome but this was a horrible experience!

    Worst experience ever. Literally ever. Bait and switch on menu items. Food came out haphazardly- side of bacon 30 min before the main dish etc. some food never came out. Most of it was cold. Our entire party thought we were on a reality show to see if we would snap. It’s truly unreal. I cannot believe they are even open. So expensive to boot.

    Restaurant was freezing, couldn’t our take winter coats off and it was still very cold. Restroom had one roll of toilet paper for 3 stalls to share. No paper towel and restroom was dirty, paper towels all over the floor and overflowing in the garbage. They were out of cotton candy for the specialty beverage we ordered, but we weren’t informed until after our beverage was delivered and made. Had a reservation and arrived 10 minutes early, but it took over half an hour to be seated after our reservation time. Understaffed and it took another 10 minutes after we were seated for server to come around to take food and drink order. Mac and Cheese Pops were okay but came out cold.

    They were very accommodating with the party size we had. We had a party of 8 and our origina time was 6:45, they let me change it to 6pm no problem. Our waiter was energetic with a great personality. There were a few hiccups but management addressed our concerns and overall it was a cool experience.

    Nice place, service was a little sad even with a reservation and them texting me we still had to wait with people being sat before us. Food was good, felt like our table was forgotten food took for ever and even still the drinks came after the food. Definitely not the same as any other sugar factory we been to and not in a good way.

    Great ambiance, it was quiet during the early afternoon and the scenery was beautiful, upscale, but fun. The host was top tier, he was friendly, smiling and took on some of the responsibilities of a waiter. The host and waiter sang ‘happy birthday’ brought ice cream and gave my kid a cupcake. I’m coming back.

    If there was a way that people could reach out to me before going I would answer every call. Staff was not ever available, no manager was present for any mistakes or problems. Or to be honest even walking around asking people how their meals were. But I digress let me just give a synopsis of what happened. Me to the hostess smiling. Zero chance of getting one in return. Walked away before inviting me to follow. 10 minutes later server came up. She did come back about 5 minutes later to check on me. I was waiting for my other person to come. We ordered drinks and an app. Out of Spinach dip from the rip no problem. Ordered a sampler and the $45 dollar mimosa. 20 minutes later a cold app hit the table no drink. 5/10 minutes later the drink showed up. No candies, no popsicles or any of the garnishes that made this drink spectacular. She did leave it and take it off the bill. We ordered our main course. Out of what I wanted no problem got a club. My food arrived my +1 didn’t receive her food for 10 minutes. I waited to eat. No meat on the club. Whatever. 15 minutes later she came back and said are you ready for the bill. My cousin was putting a bite in her mouth at that moment. I said give us 15 minutes. 10 minutes later she came back 20% service charge on every bill no problem. She then states that the restaurant gets a cut of that… she said this is the awkward part. Really I thought the whole thing was just about as awkward as it gets… we walk out after paying not even a goodbye thanks for coming in. I can’t say this enough but save your money and enjoy someplace else. Sorry but it was one of the worst experiences I ever had at an eatery.

    We were late to our reservation unfortunately but the hostess was able to seat us at the bar. They were out of a lot of their specialty drink options. The food was a bit salty. My friend said her food was salty and so did two guests sitting next to us at the bar. Service was a little slow but they did their best for a busy Saturday. The atmosphere was fun and energetic. We enjoyed that the employees would come up entertain the birthday guest with dancing!

    The floor was so dirty. Service took so long to bring our bill and get it right. There were leftover 14 balloons from a prior party blocking the nice wall. The sugar glasses behind bar were foggy and looked so dirty. They were cleaning tables with a dirty rag. It really is just like steak and shake but $$$$$$$ I wont be back.

    Well bit overpriced for the food itself, but was good to experience through the eyes of a 15 year old girl. Did not really understand the 20% tip being worked in automatically, especially considering there was just two of us. Mid, at best

    Kate was very nice, but the place overall feels like a fever dream. Too overstimulating, wasteful, basically Times Square in a room. I paid $18 for a Bloody Mary only because I was extremely hungover. That is criminal. 20% service charge up front for a party of 3. Won’t be returning.

    No wait time, due to reservations that was nice. Staff wouldn’t allow me to substitute food for my 6 year to her liking, drinks over priced 20% service charge for a table of 3. It’s a cute place, but not worth the money you spend.

    If you’re going to the sugar factory, try to stick to ordering only options that have SUGAR. The drinks were great the dessert was amazing, the food not so much. Our party of 5 ended up sending the food back. However, the staff was very understanding and went above and beyond to right the wrongs because it was also my birthday dinner. I did appreciate that.

    First time at Sugar Factory. Watching Big screen TV inside restaurant I notice lively music, smiling servers, Candy/kid store. At Detroit location: no Candy/Kid store, no smiling servers, manager stayed by hostess desk , cold food and extra long time to arrive. Manager doesn’t perform table checks, servers were running around or understaffed. I had to get servers attention for questions and additional items such as napkins, dirty plate, no water refills, and ask about food arrivals. You store looks like it caters to adults not kids. I was very disappointed with my family business. Don’t worry, I won’t be back. “ Not customer friendly”

    The service was absolutely horrific. We were brought the wrong food, drinks, waited over an hour for the apps. The food is the Applebees level if you ordered it from DoorDash and forgot until the next morning and retrieved it from your porch and then ate it. After paying 40 bucks for kool aid with dry ice and sliders full of food coloring. If you want to take 85 selfies and have your waitress ask if you want to film her setting your food on the table, go here.

    Overall experience wasn't worth my time. Started off with the reservation issue, then poor customer service, communication, wrong drinks and then the food wasn't good at all. Spending 200$ I expect 100% better. Also the manager so disrespectful and don't know how to address a customer and fix a small issue.

    Shakes were great, food was so-so. Waitress barely stopped at our table. Gratuity is also included automatically which I was OK with but just keep in mind you are tipping 20% for minimal service.

    It was extremely overpriced for the quality of food that they provided. It is also very tired and rundown for a restaurant that is not that old. The overall decor is very boring for a type of restaurant like this. You really expected there to be more than just all white walls. The service was very poor, we constantly had to remind our waiter about the items that we ordered. We didn’t all get our food at the same time. My order was brought out incorrect, and when they brought it out again, it still wasn’t correct. We felt like for what we spent we didn’t have much of a positive experience. The plates, silverware, and tables were all very dirty. We were one of the first people to be seated for the day, and our food took forever, and our table was not clean when we arrived. We will not be going back.

    Overpriced experience. Our waiter chose his tip, he was half attentive, literally sweating from performing Happy Birthday all night…I counted at least 4xs he performed. $49 for one drink is absolutely ridiculous! And seating feels more like a cafeteria w/ chandeliers than a restaurant serving $49 drinks. No booths…just open space

    Glorified steak-n-shake. The ambiance is special, the food is “ok” but not at all relatable to what they’re charging you for it, the service was slow and they didn’t even have everything they offered on the menu. The Goblet drinks are fun, overall I would go back for a drink at the bar, but not for food.
