Their corned beef and cabbage is the best I've ever had. It's melt-in-your mouth good. Their soup tastes out-of-can but I wasn't upset because the corned beef was soo good. Their coconut cream pie was also heavenly. The ambiance is a little lacking, but if you sit on the East side of the restaurant you can see the train go by which I though was cool. I'm excited to go back again.

Great staff, great cooks. We drive in from Livonia just for carry out. The food is authenic, and spicy. We have been going there now for 4 years. Never had a poor experience.

Some items are quite good. The corned beef is good, tender and stacked. The fried codfish is usually pretty good. The french fries are lacking. The ambiance is what we fondly tern "a dump." But we still go once a month or so. We always warn our friends not to expect too much.

The place was unclean - filthy even. The corned beef sandwich was supposed to be grilled and it was a soggy greasy mess.
I will never go back again because this was the 3rd time I have not been even close to satisfied.

We drive from Dearborn for there fish fry on Fridays. The owner and wait staff treat us like family and remember our names and our orders. If you looking for fancy don't go there but if your looking for a great meal and a fun dining experience then join us on fridays. There is good conversation between the customers,staff and the owner.

We've eaten here for years. By far the best corned beef in town (bettern than the Bread Basket Deli.) If you pre-fer smoke free dining enter in the back door as that is smoke free. The front counter/table area is smoking. Very friendly and efficient waitstaff.

They may welcome kids but frown on the presence of them. Cleanliness of the kitchen area is questionable. The eggs are great if you don't mind a nuked omlete. Employees have been degrated right in front of customers. It's time for a change in management.

I grew up with Bode's, and remember my folks taking us there weekly for the wonderful corn beef and watching the 6:20 and 6:35 p.m. trains go by. Continuing the tradition, we took our children there as well. Plain and simple, the very best corn beef in the country, even better than the Stage Deli in New York City. I live in Texas now, but everytime I go back to Michigan, a trip to Bode's is a must.

When you walk in, you may want to walk out if you're looking for ambience. DON'T. Bode's has the best corned beef I've had anywhere in the country. It melts in your mouth, and their corned beef and cabbage is traditional and sublime. I like the reubens with extra 1000 island, and the servers are always accomodating and friendly. The waitresses of diners in a bygone era. They will probably call you, "Hon." I have had their hash as well, and it is crispy and has a lot of corned beef flavor. I'm a flight attendant, and have had corned beef all over the world, including New York delis. Bode's is better.
