Northfield Bars & Restaurants
Captain Joe's Grill
9901 N. Main St., Whitmore Lake, MI 48189
Captain Joe’s is a great place for a cocktail and some hearty food. They specialize in Mediterranean fare, so expect your taste buds to go for a spin here. The Shrimp Bam Bam is a journey on a plate. It starts with perfectly breaded shrimp, and then it's topped with Sriracha aioli sauce. For a more homestyle meal, the mac n cheese with pulled pork and bacon will set you just right.
Bobber Down Bar and Grill
8475 Main St., Whitmore Lake, MI 48189
For some of the best fish and chips around, you need to head to Bobber Down Bar & Grill. Actually, they have some of the best seafood around. Their lobster tails are unbelievable. With just the right amount of butter and salt, even those who don’t like seafood can’t deny these lobster tails. But their sandwiches are the crowd favorite. From the lamb shawarma to the pulled pork poor boy, you can’t go wrong with this part of the menu.
Brown's Root Beer and Sandwich Shop
399 S. Lafayette St., South Lyon, MI 48178
For an amazing classic American diner, you’ll have to travel out to South Lyon for Brown’s Root Beer and Sandwich shop. Filled with beautiful old-fashioned decor like old gas pumps and neon signs, the ambiance here is almost as great as the food. While it’s absolutely nothing upscale, the burgers and coney dogs here cannot be beat. And they have an outdoor seating area for the summertime.
Whitmore Lake Tavern
9839 Main St., Whitmore Lake, MI 48189
First off, if you like bleu cheese, you have to try their black and bleu burger. It’s a huge patty on a wheat bun with delectable bleu cheese crumbs. But if you don’t like bleu cheese, or even cheese at all, the ribs should catch your eye. With a full slab special on Monday, there’s no need to feel guilty about the price. The ambiance is great. If it’s warm, grab a seat on the patio and take in the beautiful view of the lake.
Lake Street Tavern
127 E. Lake St., South Lyon, MI 48178
From the homemade chips to the locally made beers, everything here is incredibly fresh. The mushroom Swiss burger is always a great choice for mushroom lovers, while nearly anybody can enjoy their Reuben. The ambiance here is slightly upscale for a bar. Just a little bit of rustic, just like a little bit of class, this place is one of the best bars in the Northfield area.
