First time there and VERY impressed! Had this amazing feature drink (muddled strawberries and basil with vodka, lemonade and sprite), a yummy goat cheese, caramelized onion, prosciutto and arugula flat bread appetizer, and a delicious black lentil salad with halloumi cheese and special tomatoes. All so good! Will have to go back for the dessert!

I was treated to lunch in honor of my recent birthday at this lovely restaurant, decorated so distinctively in black & white stripes! My choice of fish & chips was almost as good as London, England & the lobster BLT enjoyed by my friend looked yummy as well! The Sanders hot fudge cream puff completed an absolutely heavenly meal!

I stumbled upon this place online while looking for new restaurants in the area to try. I'm so glad I convinced my BF to go there with me this past winter. The restaurant is small but has a cozy atmosphere and always smells amazing. We sat on the patio (yes, in the winter) but it was pretty warm. They have... More

I had dinner at this restaurant and it was nice, casual, decent selection of wines. Food was good, I sat at the bar, and the bartender was very pleasant. I would visit again, and recommend..

Dont be fooled by the location. Definitely add this restaurant to your dining plan when in Novi. It is focused on providing a local food experience with Michigan foods and beer. It does a great job. I recommend the pretzel and pub cheese bar bite, the smoked trout. I had the ribs for entree (which were a daily special).

Went here based on a recommendation of a friend. Since it was just me, I took a spot at the bar. I started off with the calamari. It was crispy, spicy and delicious. I then cut into my yummy porterhouse steak that was topped with onions and mushrooms. While I enjoyed my meal, there were so many other options that... More

Diamond Jim Brady's is our go-to restaurant when we are looking for a really good meal. Their menu is varied with something for everyone to enjoy. They also have a great wine and beer menu to compliment the dishes. Often the chef and the owner walk around checking to see how everything tastes. It's so fun to interact with them.... More

I've been to Jim Brady's numerous times, from its old location in Novi to its new Bistro location in the same area. There is always something new on the "specials" menu, but I absolutely love the Boursin Chicken Caesar Salad. And they even have anchovies upon request. Go!!!! You won't be disappointed.

This is a cozy little place amid an area that is clogged with chain restaurants. Diamond Jim's has become a favorite lunch spot for me and my girlfriends. The food is excellent, whether you get a burger or a salad or something more unusual. Some of our favorites are the Chicken Ciabatta, the Beef on Weck (prime rib on a... More
