The food is more like sports bar food, in a more upscale atmosphere, with the prices scaled up as well. I have had some good sandwiches , and some questionable other items. The Caesar sslad, which my daughter got, and we all tried is AWFUL, and they claim it's one of their specialties.

Very good food in a unique atmosphere. Both times I've eaten at DJB's I have had something off the specials menu. Both GREAT choices. The one thing that stood out to me was how the entire staff work together to take care of the customers and each other. It's amazing how they all work as if they are connected. From... More

My husband and I had brunch here and the food was outstanding. I felt it was a bit pricey but it was a memorable meal!!!! I had the large lamb meatballs and arugula salad. We dined out on their lovely veranda and the service was excellent.

Have been in the area twice and eaten here twice. Both meals have been excellent. It starts with a very casual atmosphere. The staff was extremely impressive; friendly, customer focused, and interactive without ever making you feel rushed. The menu does not have a lot of option but every item that we have tried has been excellent. They have several... More

My husband and I moved to Novi about a year ago and Diamond Jim Brady's was recommended to us by some friends. I can honestly say this is our favorite restaurant hands down. Their service is fantastic as well as their drinks, wine list, beer list, and simple yet complex menu. We've tried just about everything on the menu and... More

A rather intimate setting, seems to attract the 50+ age group that appreciates getting away from the fast food scene and wants to relax and enjoy the evening and good food. Staff is friendly and mature. A tinge pricey but, worth the good food and atmosphere.....not at all like the old Diamond Jim Brady's. Whether it is a special occasion... More

This is a great place surrounded by chain restaurants. If you hate the chain restaurants you will love this place. Great service and great food. Large selection of beers and wine. A menu that they can handle - not trying to be everything for everyone. We travel into Michigan once a month and stay in the Novi area. We never... More

My friend and I celebrated our mutual birthdays at this beautiful site enjoying the breeze on their indoor-outdoor patio. We shared a pot of delicious mussels in a piquant broth. Following our salad and flat bread meals, we were treated to complimentary mini hot fudge sundaes complete and left felling full and happy!
