Rustic sports restaurant decorated with football photos and helmets, and lots of screens showing games. They were not busy but my waitperson disappeared after dropping off a menu, until finally the hostess noticed. She was testy the rest of the meal. They were out of the featured lasagna, so I went with the fried perch. My salad with iceberg lettuce was crisp, but nothing special. The perch was bland and the French fries overcooked. Probably should have gotten a pizza.

Antipasto salad delicious and shareable. 8 square Italian sausage, mushrooms, and green pepper pizza excellent. Cold beer and great service (Kay). Paid then decided to stay for another beer!

This was a small bakery and cafe but recently remodeled and expanded. It is beautifully designed with an upscale look. The menu for lunch had appetizers like risotto cakes and calamari, salads and sandwiches. The choices seemed to be on the healthier side with lots of fresh ingredients and interesting pairings. I ordered the chicken nicoise salad which was $9.95. The bowl was large with romaine lettuce, red skin potatoes, green beans, red peppers, olives, chicken tossed in a light vinagarette. It was a perfect blend of ingredients with a wonderful presentation. My friend ordered a bowl of the chicken tortilla soup and was very happy with the flavors. The service was excellent and I highly recommend this place for lunch.

Stopped on my way home for my first visit. Drunken noodle was very good. The noodles were not too heavy. A little too mild for my taste but typical for the area. Service was a little slow. They appeared to have trouble covering all the table. Worth a try if your nearby.

This is a family owned and run donut shop on Woodward in Pontiac. The donuts are wonderfully made with a nice variety. Our favorite which is hard to come by unless you go first thing in the morning is the long John with a maple glaze and a whole strip of bacon. The flavors and textures are awesome together . I realized since I am not a morning person, I've probably missed out on some of the more interesting combos because by the time I get there, they literally are practically sold out on all. One time I came around 12:00 or a little later and there was a sign that said " sorry sold out". I'm really happy that they have loyal customers. We are a donut family because we love a good donut. This is by far the best we have had.

Bill’s draws inspiration from the neighborhood and its rich history, creating a setting that is modern but with old-world charm. The creatively classic menu easily incorporates the food of a French bistro, Italian trattoria and American social club. Whether you’re here for lunch, dinner, breakfast, brunch or drinks, you’ll delight in our sophisticated yet comfortable space.
I visited Bill's shortly after it opened and vowed never to return....the noise level was beyond belief and the electronic/tablet wine list was a royal pain. Broke my vow several nights ago and was glad I did. The ambience is vastly improved, the noise level greatly reduced.....and of course the menu and the wait staff have always been good. I a hard-copy wine list has replaced the electronic version. Wahoooo! We'll be back.

I went there with a colleague. The place is characteristic of old western places with moose head showed at the entrance. Overall a place simple and welcoming. Staff kind and efficient. WE had Buffalo Oaf and Ribbs (photos). Both were very good. So I would recommend this place for a dinner with friends or a family dinner. Good the beers choice.

I have eaten here many times and will continue to do so. Food is made fresh and quickly. Staff are friendly and attentive. The food is great!!! Nachos are a must and good luck finishing the large order. Burritos and tacos are great. variety of salsa is also a plus. I will continue to eat here.

Authentic Thai Cuisine and Sushi Bar. Dine in or carry out. We also provide catering services and accommodate private parties.
We typically get carryout as the restaurant itself does not have much of an atmosphere Food is good and service is prompt

Been here probably 30-40 times over the years and always a favorite.
Now, things have changed and not for the good.
About a year or so ago we noticed the food was not as good as in the past.
Met my 2 Brothers there, our usual spot, for lunch today and the food was awful.
I had the Meatloaf special. They served me a thin 3/8" thick single slice of meatloaf that was totally tasteless, including the blah brown gravy it was floating in!
My one Brother had a Pulled pork sandwich. The bun was so hard he was tapping his knife on it and it sounded like a rock. Also, his order came with homemade chips that were also rock hard, greasy and totally inedible. When we called the waitress over she was quite snotty, ripped the plate off the table, returned with a the same meat on fresh bun, not even rewarmed, and in place of the chips they actually put 4 pcs of french fries about 2-3" long each on his plate. Very sad service, This is not how you treat customers.
My other Brother had a Tuna Wrap that he said was good but had the same inedible home made chips. The waitress did not even offer to replace his with 4 french fries.
A terrible experience after going there for at least 8-10 years. We vowed to meet elsewhere next time. I guess the good cook must have retired!
