We ate at Diamond Jim Brady's last Saturday night and had a wonderful meal. We all had hamburgers and they all came as we ordered. Also we ate in the outside eating space they have created. It was intimate and less noisy than the main restaurant so we could have a good discussion. I would recommend that you request the... More

Great meal, nice atmosphere, very knowledgeable and accommodating waiter who was willing to do everything to make sure our meal was exactly as we wanted it. Highly recommend this place. Oh yes, don't forget the very reasonably priced wine selection. Top rate in every way!

My boyfriend and I used Trip Advisor to find us a good place to eat in the Novi area. I saw the cool looking circle room...I was hooked. The food and the service was excellent. We got the goat cheese flat bread, an absolute must! Great experience and be sure to sit in the circle room!

This restaurant is smaller than I thought it would be. At least 1/2 of the dining appears to be outdoors, which is great on a beautiful night, but on winter nights seating in the restaurant is a premium. I would strongly recommend reservations. We sat at a table within the bar area and our server was also the bar tender.... More

Glad you had a wonderful time and we LOVE that you said the bartender was funny and sarcastic. All the girls are pretty hilarious behind the bar and they work really hard to keep everyone happy so we love to see them appreciated. You rock! More

One of the few original restaurants in Michigan where you don't find the typical dishes of the 99% of US restaurants. Recommended for lunch. Not cheap but it's worth it.

Eaten there several times. Food and service are very good!! Patio seating is nice and adds to casual atmosphere. Like the fish although I've never really had a bad meal there,

Stopped here on a whim. Went back within a week and interested in going again. On 2 most recent visits sat on outdoor patio both times. Very pleasant - gardens were pleasing and road noise was not too distracting. LOVED the fish and chips and those ROLLS! Hard to not just fill up on those. Happy the staff kept my... More

I started out with the smoked whitefish paté. It is really good. I was expecting something more like the white fish dip that's popular in UP but it's a paté not dip. It's better than dip! My husband had a sandwich with prime rib I think it was (can't remember name) very good. Their coleslaw is refreshing, I enjoyed it.... More

We enjoyed fresh MI fish for a Sunday lunch with out of town visitors. The friendly hostess shoehorned eight of us in (they had a full house and we did not have reservations). The Sunday crowd might have slowed the service but the well prepared food made up for the wait.
