Josef's French Pastry Shop

Reviewed By mnnofziger - Murfreesboro, Tennessee

I ordered my husbands retirement cake from here. Everyone was friendly and the cake was delicious! My husbands last name was spelled wrong on the cake but that was my fault in the end because I was shown the cake before they took it to my car and I did not notice. Also, we ordered buttercream icing and received the whipped icing instead but our guests didn't seam to mind. Overall the service here was really good, just a few small mistakes. It's definitely worth a stop into Josef's!

Original Pancake House

Reviewed By chefjoey52 - Iron River, Michigan

One of my all-time favorite restaurants. I can honestly say that I would recommend ANYTHING on the menu. Some of my favorites - The Big Apple, The Big German, The Dutch Baby, 49er Flapjacks, any of the Crepes, The Mushroom Omelet, and I can't forget the Super Thick Bacon. Everything is made with quality ingredients - and you can taste the difference! Real butter and real whipped cream - not a bunch of artificial flavors and chemicals. And to top it off, the servers are so friendly and just so completely efficient! Wow - I can't say enough good things. Just eat here and you will see what I'm gushing about.

Bucci Ristorante

Reviewed By oreomau27 - Chicago, Illinois

We went for a family dinner to celebrate the holidays. We had a lovely all around experience, from the perfect quiet corner table, to the service, to the food. The meal was paced perfectly. Not fast, not slow. Just attentive perfect service. All of our meals were handcrafted, fresh hot and delicious. For the quality of the ingredients and the presentation...the prices are very good. We had a nice time and will be back.

Nautical Deli

Reviewed By Sherri B - Warren, Michigan

Last night was my first time here. I enjoyed the many selections available. The Pick 2 pairings reminds me of Panera Bread, but not as expensive. So, for healthy food options without the whole sit-down ordeal, it's good food at a reasonable price and nice atmosphere. I will definitely come again!

Great Jazz groups play on the weekends

Reviewed By Roy V - Detroit, Michigan

My wife and I went to the Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe last eve - had dinner at the bar by choice - what a pleasant experience.

And of course, Carl the Bartender is a big add to our experience.

Plus relatively good prices for the quality of food and wine.

May it continue

St Sabbas Orthodox Monastery. They offer dinner on Thursday in their beautiful restaurant.

Reviewed By schaefcand - Michigan

We visited this amazing Russian Orthodox Property to enjoy their Thursday dinner and were blown away by the experience. Situated on a tree lined street in a quiet neighborhood you drive up to what is a 6 acre property of simply cute houses and looking up you can see the colorful onion spheres and a church. Surrounded by the most beautiful gardens is the restaurant and gift house. Take the time to walk the gardens and appreciate the beauty. Due to the weather we opted to forsake the patio and proceeded inside to what can only be described as opulent and we were surrounded by Russian artifacts and antiques. The servers are all volunteers but experienced and very informative and pleasant. The menu features the recipes from Eastern Europe and prepared by the in house chef and presented on simply elegant China. Our table began with the dumplings and borsch soup along with garlic soup. From this we knew we in for a positive taste experience. Our entrees chosen were the sampler platter, beef wellington, beef stroganoff and chicken kiev . All portions were on the healthy side and doggie bags were required. Excellent tastes, a blend of sauces that only added to the tastes. We decided to save room for desserts and elected the house favorite - European Napoleon - was a OMG taste, huge portions that need to be shared.
You are allowed to bring your own wine and there is no corkage!
Dinner is only served on Thursday and check the web site for the dress code.
Another diamond in the rough for a dining experience in the Metro Detroit area!

Chocolate Bar Cafe

Reviewed By Lokiruby - Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan

It has become a tradition in my family to go to the Chocolate Bar Cafe to celebrate birthdays with a delicious banana split or sunday, it never disappoints? The staff is super friendly. The ambience is that of a modernized soda fountain and ice cream haven. We love this place.

Super cute outside custard place. Great for a date or just a craving. Great toppings, flavors and choices. I tried the hot fudge brownie boat. That can be shared by three people.
