Buddy's Pizza-Farmington Hills

Reviewed By Drpad - Farmington, MI

Stopped in for a late lunch, after a day traipsing around the Detroit Zoo. We were starved and Buddy's sounded good. Neither of us had been there is a while; it's just not on our beaten path. We ordered the basics, an antipasto salad and an original Detroiter's Pizza.
Maybe we were just hungry, but both were excellent. Detroit is a home of excellent pizza and Buddy's is one of the best..

Beans & Cornbread

Reviewed By Traveling1994 - Rochester

You cant find anything on the menu that uses than great. No matter what you choose, it's guaranteed to be good. Love the meatloaf, chicken and catfish. The sides are amazing - green beans, collard greens, mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, etc....

The service is outstanding. Never had less than an outstanding experience here.

J Alexander's Restaurant

Before visiting here I heard nothing but GREAT things about this place but left disappointed. The food was not bad just was not what i expected. Maybe i ordered the wrong thing but it was highly suggested. I had the Prime Rib and Smash which was not what i thought it would be. Rather spend the money somewhere else.

As often as I eat ice cream I shouldn't complain about prices. It's just I expect to have a very small cone available at a reasonable price which I didn't find this year. Before new ownership prices were a bit lower and their was always an adult in the shop. Now you never see anyone over 18 y/o in there. I'm old therefore I complain. Goes with the territory, right?

Peterlin's

Reviewed By happytraveler49 - Michigan

We recently visited here for the first time based on the recommendation of several neighbors. The place was hopping on a cold, Saturday evening. Although the hostess told us that the wait would be about 30 minutes, we only waited for ten. We were seated in the bar area near the entertainment...a singer we enjoyed very much.

The food was tasty and well presented. The salad was fresh. The tomato bruschetta was yummy. My DH enjoyed the mushroom soup. We both enjoyed our entrees: Pot Roast Sandwich (a special the day we went) and Portabello Divine. The menu has quite a few options I would list under the Comfort Food category. They had many specials on the day we were there. I just wished they had more vegetarian options.

We would definitely go back based on the friendly staff and the food quality. The entertainment was a nice plus, so we would want to go back when they have the entertainment. They have happy hour specials which would make it even more desirable to choose those times. They also have specials Monday through Thursday.

Great neighborhood establishment!

Red Coat Tavern

Reviewed By Funtwin1

Have been coming here for years. One look around and you’ll see that everyone comes for the burgers. They are great and never disappoint. I love getting the Piedmontese beef burger because they say it’s as healthy as a chicken breast? But I love that you can customize what you want on your burger. And the onion rings...my goodness, even if you don’t like onion rings...try these! They are melt in your mouth good! I’ve honestly never tried anything else on the menu because I can’t come here and not have a burger. They are just that good!

Breakfast Club

Never disappointed. Usually a wait, but we were lucky to get right in. Such a special treat for breakfast! Service by all is always with a smile and sincere. Food always great! Whenever I have the opportunity to meet anyone for breakfast, this is the place to impress. Everything is tasty, couldn’t pick my favorite meal. To top it off the bill is served up with fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate.

Bacco Ristorante

Reviewed By John D - Rochester, Michigan

We love this fine dinner by Italian eatery. It’s expensive but it’s a delight and a nice place to eat on special occasions. We see older and younger couples as well as families there. It’s not as trendy as Birmingham, Royal Oak or Troy restaurants are, but you have to try it at least one.
The staff is very attentive and the food is excellent.
We started off with the anti pasta, Salciccia, and it was delicious. The Caesar salad was very good but the soup was simply delicious and one of the best soups around. It was a pork stock with beans, cabbage and vegetables. The filet is delicious as is the ossobucco. I prefer the filet over the ossobucco. I loved the pappardelle, a lamb ragu pasta, but my wife did not.

Basement Burger Bar

Reviewed By 460teddg - Novi

We have been there several times. The quality of the burgers is excellent with many signature choices or build your own. Prices are reasonable. They also have a nice craft beer selection. The onion rings are worth coming in for even if you don't like burgers.

The ambiance is nice in spite of being in the basement. We are seniors, but the normal crowd is much younger; there are plenty of IDs being checked.

This tiny little 50s throw-back has classic, sliders. Yes, they're greasy. No, not so greasy that they're not tolerable. Yes, they taste good. So do the fries and onion rings. Next time I'll try a shake!
