Great place for burgers & a cold beer

They have great burgers & beer. They make a sinful homemade chip to go with your burger, sandwich or wrap. When it gets warm & you can get a patio seat, that's the best atmosphere in Northville.

food is fine, if you get the burger/bar type fare. Atmosphere is great in the summer to sit outside. Inside a bit tight and usually crowded, but okay. Drinks good, a friendly tavern/pub place.

Keep it simple, ensure your order is correct before wait person leaves and things will be okay. A decent pub with staples that are done pretty well. Convenient for northville area.

If you're looking for good casual food in Northville, this is your spot. Great burgers, ribs, wings and beer on tap. It's very much a neighborhood place.

Poole's Tavern is a long time, well thought of, popular, quality restaurant, in downtown Northville. Their signature hamburger is excellent. The meat is top quality, with a very good bun. The rest of the menu is very well prepared also. Service is good, and accommodating. The place is always clean, with a nice clientele.

Great hamburgers. They have a really nice outdoor patio. Eating indoors is like eating at a nicer than average neighborhood bar.

I have been frequenting Poole's for several years. The burgers are very good as is their menu. They offer new items on a daily basis. The wait staff and management are exceptional. The great thing about Poole's is the building is made up of 2 distinct indoor sections, the front area and the Bak which is a separate room with... More

We went in not expecting much and ordered the burgers. They were juicy, cooked perfectly and large. The fries were also very fresh and crispy. We had a very nice, inexpensive meal. The service was pretty quick.

It was planned in the last minute and we stopped by at this place on a Thursday evening. The place was not crowded and we had a really good casual dinner. Service was friendly and efficient. The food and the drinks were good and we had good time. Would definitely come back. It is indeed a nice casual place.
