As a vegetarian, I have eaten many a grilled cheese as one of the few non-meat options on the menu. And often restaurants phone it in - soggy bread, too much cheese, too little, etc. But this was the best grilled cheese I've had in a long time. Yummy bread, and the perfect amount of cheese, tomato and pesto to... More

Met friends for happy hour and dinner. Sat outside as it was a great spot to people watch. $5 Old Fashions and a good beer menu. We had the burger sliders and the turkey pastrami (one of the best ever). Friendly and efficient wait staff . Nice inside bar. Good prices.

After living in LA for four years, I feel this place could hold its own there, in terms of food & service quality, as well as decor. I don't want the waits or prices to shoot up, but this place deserves recognition. This is the second time I've been here, and the food was excellent both times, especially for the... More

The Emory has a great atmosphere on the inside. Dark, with beautiful wood bar and nice wrap around large booths for larger groups. They have a pool table as well, and a jukebox to choose your favorite tunes. The restaurant also offers outside seating on Woodward Ave in the summer, great to dine while the sun goes down. The restaurant... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives close by. The atmosphere is beautiful with wood floors, romantic lighting, and modern but classy booths and tables. We ordered the pulled pork and pot roast. The pulled pork did not have barbecue sauce. The meat had a spicy kick to it. The pot roast wasn't pot roast, but more like... More

We stopped by for early Sunday breakfast and had a great meal. Ham & cheese omelettes were delicious. Service was wonderful. They have a Bloody Mary bar on Sunday mornings where they bring you the alcohol and you take that to the large table to pour in tomato juice and all the accompaniments you choose. I must comment on the... More
