Can't go wrong with Northside Grill for breakfast. Often meet clients there for work. The line during the weekend is long, but worth the wait. Coffee is superb

The best potato pancakes since my grand mothers. Cool place, friendly lots of locals- you know that you are in the right place and the prices are fair.

Northside grill has an amazing breakfast. My friend and I each ordered the Four Duces. I got the Oatbran pancakes, and she the blueberry oat. They were huge and fluffy and delicious! Neither of us came close to finishing our pancakes. The bacon, sausage and eggs were great too. Service was friendly and attentive, we didn't have empty water or... More

The day we chose for brunching at Northside, there was Elvis Presley impersonator. It made the place more lively and ambience more enjoyable. Pancakes never tasted so good, especially with the lovely bunch of friends I was hanging out with :)

My expectations for diner food are generally not that high, as the food is generally easy to cook. Biting into the Northside Grill omelette then came as a delightful surprise. I had no idea that omelettes could be so moist while still being cooked, including the cheese, meat, and vegetables stuffed inside. Top that with friendly, speedy service, and I... More

We enjoyed a delicious brunch at the Northside. Only negative was the wait time to get a seat. Definitely recommend the vegetarian omlette!

One of the things we look forward to the most when traveling is seeking out that cities "Best Breakfast". I'm sure Ann Arbor can do better than Northside Grill. Our waiter was rude and disinterested from the get-go, thank goodness we had to change tables and were passed off to a different waiter. Breakfast was...warm and freshly prepared - that's... More

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
