I met a dear friend here for dinner at her suggestion. This was my first visit, and I was looking forward to trying a new (to me) restaurant. It's a warm and welcoming place with comfortable seating. I love the more intimate environment - seating for, perhaps, around 50. I found my selection among their daily specials. It was a... More

This was my only my second visit to a vegan/vegetarian restaurant in 69 years of life. The place is small on a quiet side street (free parking !!!) with attractive original art hanging on the walls. They have also installed acoustic tiles on the ceiling to eliminate loud, annoying echoes that usually occurs in older buildings...great move ! I'm not... More

Great place for all. Amazing place for vegetarians and vegans. Highly recommended!! Wish they had more seating but that to me is part of its appeal and draw!

In general I order carryout from this restaurant, which is within walking distance of my house. The restaurant is small, so it fills up quickly. It's worth the wait, however. The atmosphere is quiet and comfortable. In addition, the staff is always friendly and competent. Food at Inn Season is always fresh and they never use microwave ovens. Given the... More

Inn Season is one of the metro Detroit area's classic veggie eateries. The food is high quality and consistently tasty, but lacks imagination. The staff is rather blah, as well.

I arrived here at 6:30pm on a Saturday where I was promptly seated. I was given complimentary bread, which was decent. I ordered the Budapest mushroom soup, Big Braprawski burger and opera cake. The soup was decent. Whereas the soup came out quickly, the burger took some time to come out. When I finally got it, it was average. The... More

I enjoy eating here even though I am not a vegetarian. They serve a wide variety of interesting and tasty options that you don't find in other typical lunch or dinner spots.

All organic, charming hipster decor. Plenty of food, well seasoned by a chef who has been there for years. This discovery has real charm snd is a great place to gather with friends, which is what we did!

I am not a vegetarian, but the food in Inn Season is wonderful. I take my vegetarian wife there frequently and score lots of points! I especially like their PIZZAs- it is about the only place I can get real WALNUTS on them. I recommend arriving early since otherwise, there is a line out the door.
