I usually avoid bars with names like Alibi and have ignored this local one for years. But we got one of restaurant gift cards - and the selection of participating places was very limited (e.g., $5 off one $20 entree is not a deal). But The Library was local and we didn't want to cook. So we were pleasantly surprised the moment we walked in. To the left was the predictably loud sports bar section but to the right was real dining area. We were immediately seated, offered a long list of beers, and all of the day's specials. Turns out Monday's are half-off pizzas or something and I'm a pizza kind of guy. But we saw one being served up and we decided we didn't want a thick crust pie. The food and beers were good but our waitress did orphan us once or twice. In the end they said our happy hour purchases voided the gift card coupon. I can understand that but they obviously run too many concurrent specials/discounts. It through them for a loop. So the coupon was worth $6 off the entire bill (not a deal). But it was a pleasant surprise. Worth the look.

Walked in and one of the hostesses was very rude to the other one in front of customers, waited 20 minutes and nobody came to take our order, and there was small child walking around the restaurant and just going up to random people - safe to say we walked out. The menu was very average for bar food - will not go back.

After a movie and right at the dinner hour, we wound up at Library Sports Pub & Grill in Novi, Michigan. It was really very good food and the service was as good as we've had anywhere! We will definitely visit here again and recommend that you give it a try. You will be glad you did!

This place is great. My boyfriend and I frequent this establishment often. We order the Herb Stuffed Chicken, Steak Bites, and their (new to the menu) Pita Bread and Humus. It's nothing short of amazing. The bf likes Oberon draft beer, and I order a vodka and soda water. The server is quick yet friendly, and our orders have always been accurate.

The pub can get busy towards the evening, but we always find a seat promptly. Management is great: remembers names, friendly faces, and seating preferences. I would definitely recommend the Library; also, it's not a typical "bar scene." Although a younger crowd does come in during late evening hours, they are not obnoxious or rude. During day and early evening, there tends to be many couples and families.

VERY average food. Probably would not eat there again. Steak ordered medium rare had NO pink in it. Fish tacos, OK it's not southern Cal BUT at least a lime instead of lemon? Spinach artichoke dip very bland and on top of it waitress was rather rude. 2-1/2 out 5 stars.
