From burgers(the best) to entrées Brady's won't disappoint. Local craft brews and a great wine list that has the consistent greats and some interesting new selections. I would rate them in my top 3 in Novi

You have to visit for the salad as it is excellent especially with salmon. The burgers etc were excellent according to my fellow diners as was the service.

Slow, inattentive service even though it wasn't particularly crowded (it's a small place to begin with). The food was just ok, plated without finesse, and the portions were small for the price.

Stopped in for the first time with my wife and brother for lunch, and all three of us just had to try the Caesar's Salad with the stuffed chicken. WOW!!! Best salad ever!!! We'll definitely return at the first opportunity and have it again, even though it's almost an hour drive for us.

They always have a unique menu, and I love the $5 glass of Ranga Ranga Sauvignon Blanc they serve. I also love the flat bread pizzas.

DJB is a friendly, fairly casual dining option in Novi. It has been around a long time, always has some very interesting menu items (lobster BLT, great flatbread options, salads). The menu changes fairly often, but the 'favorites' remain. Excellent wine choices available. The ice cream puff with hot fudge is worth starting with! Many business people lunch here, but... More

Three of us came here to celebrate a 50th BD lunch. The flat bread and bistro lunch plates we ordered were all good but the scottish salmon was amazing. Service was excellent, too. And my friend got a complimentary sundae with a candle. We were really pleased with everything, had a great time and will definitely come back for more... More

Since reopening in a new smaller location Diamond Jim Brady's has changed to a gourmet small portion restaurant with higher prices.
