Judging by the crowds of people lining up outside this restaurant, particularly on weekends, Northside Grill should be great. Unfortunately, it is no more than plain average. I was invited to Sunday brunch last week. We sat outside on a small, shaded patio with attractive plantings. The restaurant and menu choices remain dated in comparison with other more interesting restaurants.... More

Went for a late breakfast early lunch. Was very good and very reasonable ! Had meat lovers breakfast which was cooked perfectly especially the eggs. Our son had the turkey club sandwich which was also very good. Service was excellent .

I went to the Northside Grille for lunch. Upon walking in I smelled the fresh aroma of coffee. The place is small but seats many. The atmosphere is inviting and just what you are looking for when it comes to a home town restaurant. I had the Classic Reuben with a side of Fries. I heard many customers ordering the... More

This is a good little diner and just the place for some breakfast before you go see University of Michigan. Loved the comic book decorations for the event there.

We had to wait for a short while to get a table; it was suggested by the restaurant personnel that we spend those few minutes in the adjacent store, We had apple oat bran pancake, potato pancake and omelettes - vegetarian. All were good; the omelettes were really sumptuous. Service was also pleasant.

Went to the Northside Grill for only the second time on Easter Sunday. Arrived around 10am and had a little wait (always a good sign). Service was excellent and the food was unbelievable. We had Quiche Lorraine that came with hash browns and a "4 deuces", two eggs, two sausage, two bacon and two pancakes. They have a variety of... More

I'm not much of a Northsider, however Northside Grill makes an excellent breakfast. I simply focus on the breakfast sandwiches, the sandwich depending on my mood that morning. Seriously, just pick a breakfast sandwich and happiness ensues. A perfectly overhard egg coupled with toppings and a bread that just seem perfect together. My only worry was that the bacon, for...

Expect long lines on the weekends, it's that good. They will set up coffee outside in the warm months, so you can drink while you wait (What business does that these days?) This is a family owned diner and it shows in homey atmosphere and delicious food. I've had my free birthday breakfast at Northside Grill for at least 10... More

Everything I've ever eaten here is wonderful, but I have to say the Jalapeno burger is the most filling delicious, spicy meat fest one could ask for when craving such things *lol*!
