The #1 dining directory for downriver.

We offer a FREE listing for every bar, restaurant, diner, bakery, ice cream shop, tavern, sports bar, banquet hall, catering service, national chain, and all the fast food places and coffee shops you can think of. If you serve food or drinks in a downriver city, we want to know about it. See the cities we cover below.

You can read and submit reviews, get coupons, discounts, and find special offers, as well as read about food news and events in our community.

In addition to the downriver cities, we showcase all the food and drink establishments inside the Detroit Metro Airport which will help our community and visitors get more out of their dining experiences while traveling to and from Michigan.

For restaurant owners and managers, we have a dedicated restaurant marketing section to help you gain new visitors and repeat customers to your place of business. We want to help bring new customers to you.

We are different from Yelp in many respects. We are a local directory dedicated to the dining industry for our downriver community only, which will benefit local businesses to be listed here. We will not bombard owners about advertising on our directory, nor do we have any sophisticated algorithm in place that will influence the visibility of reviews based on those who pay for advertising or those who choose not to.

We’ve all heard or read the rumors of Yelp manipulating reviews and advertisements and basically punishing the businesses who choose not to pay for advertisements. There’s even a documentary movie about it.


Yelp Sucks

You won’t get that type of treatment from us. We’re here to help you gain new customers. Plain and simple.

Our FREE listings, and all reviews, will get the same visibility as our FEATURED listings. Payments for Advertising and Featured Listings are securely processed via PayPal or Stripe, the internet’s most trusted payment providers. Rest assured, that no payment information is ever captured or retained on our site for your protection.
