Bad experience at Mac's decided to leave there and crossed the street into a great bar. Had a bite food was grate. Loved the grill being out where you can see your food being prepared. No secrets here. Will be back.

The burgers were absolutely mouth watering. The best local beef! The basket of fries was enough for 4 people and cooked perfect!

This is a great local spot for a burger+beer. It's my favorite Friday lunch place and I imagine it's a good place to watch a game as well. The atmosphere is nice and real, nothing tacky. The servers have always been great. They always have a few things on special for a good price. I've had plenty of burgers, pulled-pork,... More

Ordered an appetizer for the whole family. If I remember right, the nacho app was big enough for several people. Now it is a small plate with a huge price. The rest of the food was ho hum. Don't expect to be surprised with great food, but you will be surprised with a huge check. Glass of beer is like... More

We've never had bad food here. It's a mix between a restaurant and a pub, with a very eclectic crowd.

Harvest salad is different every time I Oder it. Don't like that when you expect one thing and you get something different. Never had two salads a like even though I order the same thing every time.

Had a nice dinner with friends. Sat outside in the nice weather. Had the Adrian burger, it was fantastic. One of us had the peanut butter burger. He loved it. I found it a little strange. We had an appetizer with chips, blue cheese, and I think dried tomatoes in some type of balsamic dressing it was great. My buddy... More

I've been here twice and the first time the food was awesome! I couldn't wait to go back. Recently I came back for a second time and my experience was awful. My boyfriend's fries were still practically raw and my sister's sweet potato fries were black. It was so loud in there that we were screaming at each other to... More

Dan's is Saline's place to meet up with friends or take the kids out to a casual dinner. Been here many, many times. Usually get the Michigan Harvest Wrap with sweet potato fries. Great burgers too. Like anywhere, service can depend on how busy and who you get. Most of the service is fine. My one gripe would be they... More
