Restaurant Details

Delicious homemade food and farm fresh ingredients share the spotlight with the best live musicians in Detroit at M’s Gathering Place.

Located at 32293 Ford Road (between Venoy and Merriman) in Garden City, M’s Gathering Place delivers a unique menu highlighting tasty family recipes, made with the freshest fixings at surprisingly affordable prices. “I felt the community needed a place where we could come and listen to great music, and enjoy a good meal in a nice, clean, family atmosphere,” says owner Mary Hauk, a lifelong Michigander.

Mary has owned and operated Mary’s Farm Market and Farm in nearby Canton since 1993. The selections at M’s Gathering Place feature fresh seasonal produce straight from Mary’s farm or purchased from her network of local Michigan farmers whenever possible. “Whatever we don’t grow on our family farms, we’re able to bring in from other Michigan farms when it’s in season,” Hauk says. “That makes a world of difference when it comes to flavor.”

The “always fresh” aesthetic applies to the restaurant’s meats and seafood as well. The best cuts of beef and pork are prepared daily in house to ensure top quality. Whitefish, salmon and farm-raised catfish are flown in, and filleted right in the spacious kitchen. Homemade breads, sauces, salad dressings and pizza dough are also prepared at the restaurant. Many of the items on the menu like the mouth-watering beef stroganoff, and the juicy London Broil are adapted from family recipes.

Other amenities at M’s include online ordering, 14 large screen televisions for Detroit’s sports lovers, a fine variety of craft and commercial beers, wines and spirits, and free wi-fi. Dine-in and carry out are available.
