Great Burger and Onion Rings. BOMB!
Headed over here one evening to watch a Tiger game and have a burger. Marge's was packed and loud so we ventured a little further from the norm. Glad we did! Through a stale smoke smell and darkness, we entered the bar. It's a bar. Standard neighborhood variety. Not too Irish-y, (official term there), as they didn't have cider for me, but they had some tasty burgers. Service was friendly and prompt, and people watching (and listening) was at a premium. I'll be back.
This place is your classic dark paneled, nobody judging you, delicious burger, awesome hole in the wall bar. The bartenders know how to make great drinks, and beer is always cold. The tight layout just adds to the huddle up with your friends for a good laugh and a drink feel. Get the ground round deluxe with roquefort cheese, it's delicious.

Luxe Bar & Grill

115 Kercheval Ave
Grosse Pointe Farms, 48236
Reviews:
Really top-notch. Since moving to St. Clair Shores from Chicago, we've been trying to find a good, casual but romantic "date night" type of place, with no luck. Reviews on Yelp didn't reveal very many highly-rated options in the Eastpointe/GrossePointes/SCS/Roseville areas. Last night, my boss, a co-worker and I were looking for a nice place to quietly celebrate the good year our small business had, so we opted to give Luxe a try after reading reviews. The Food: Ordered the Mediterranean platter to start with. Everything was room temperature or slightly warm, which I've read is how it should be served. It included everything mentioned on the menu (salami, feta, olives, marinated mushrooms, peppers, etc.) plus caperberries. Everything was delicious. Our entrees included the lamb chops (two of us tried these; rave reviews), the salmon (the only thing about the dinner that wasn't awesome ... one of my guests said it was a little overly fishy ... we mentioned it to the waitress and it was comped on our bill without another word), and the green apple salad (divine and will absolutely be ordered again!) and the French onion soup (salty, but plenty of other flavor too -- good call on the haystack onions). Dirty martinis and a coffee topped it off. Pros: Not too busy, but it was only a Tuesday night. Plenty of free evening parking behind the shops. Grosse Pointe Farms is quiet and beautiful, especially after dark. The ambience of this place is great, romantic, and yet not stuffy. The service was prompt and very attentive on our visit. It's an environment perfect for casual conversation (but like I said, we weren't there on a Friday or Saturday night). The food is not overly exotic -- you can order a burger, for instance, but they put some imagination into it and there are delightful combinations that really set this place apart from your typical "bar and grill". See my comments above regarding specific dishes. Also: until last night, you couldn't pay me to touch frisee. I love salad, but that wiry white bitter stuff always gets picked out. After having that green apple salad, I'm a frisee believer. And this place made it happen. Cons: Restaurant markup on wine is high. That's a given. But this place's wine prices were so high my boss didn't even order a glass, and we're in the wine business, so we usually order something. Also, the waitress wasn't familiar with what wines they had, but I'd chalk that up to inexperience -- and that type of thing doesn't bother me unless I'm paying top dollar for a plate at a snooty place. So no biggie. Overall: Great food, great atmosphere, attentive and polite service, and I can't wait to bring my husband (and out-of-town guests) here.
The Brussels sprout salad is divine. You think maple dressing - but it's just right with the warm sprouts, French fried onion, frisée and blue cheese with pumpkin seeds & cranberries. Great lemonade & my friend enjoyed her vodka & lemonade - fresh made. Atmosphere is great, a little pricey & decor is underdone yet comfy. Great service & free wifi. Coming back to check out more menu items soon.
Summary. A good burger place (3.5 out of 5) with some interesting other items and better quality than I would expect considering the reasonable price. Stopped here after sailing with my siblings on a Saturday night. We were seated (group of 8) quickly and our server was young and attentive. We ordered nacho and calamari appetizers. The calamari was ok. The nachos were good. There was a small beer list, but there were drafts on the list for everyone in our group (a group with varied beer tastes). I enjoyed a Dragon's Milk from New Holland. For dinner we ordered a a few servings of the fries and sweet potato fries to share around the table. My wife preferred the sweet potato fries but I thought the original fries were better. Not special, but good fries. I also ordered a mushroom Swiss burger and a BBQ bacon burger and split both with my wife. The burgers we well prepared and juicy. Good burgers. I also tried the Brussels and the bite I had was so good I want to come back just to order a full side for myself. Overall, I really enjoyed this place and may try to make it back (likely to try the Birmingham location that is closer to our house) soon.

Morning Glory Coffee & Pastries

85 Kercheval
Grosse Pointe Farms, 48236
Reviews:
my wife and I go here every Saturday and Sunday morning. always consistently good. the building itself it very unique and cozy. the staff always remembers our orders and makes them correctly. haven't tried the pastries, but I've heard good things.
If you want a friendly and comfortable place, this would be it. Ingenious flavor combination and twists on old classics. Cakes, muffins, danish, you name it, it's great. I live on the west side but every time I have business in the Detroit / Harper Woods/ Grosse Pointe area, I always arrange my schedule to allow me time to get there before they close. I've ordered cakes and pies there very often and everything has been great. However, my only critique of them is that you have to be very specific when it comes to cake decoration. I ordered a cake for my wife's birthday and told them I'd like season colors, with perhaps some flowers on it. I told them that I would like the decorator use their inspiration. The cake they created looked like something for a little girl, not a 50+ woman. I took it because I need the cake that day but told them I was not happy. They compensated me for my dissatisfaction and I've continued to go there because the do make a quality product.
I haven't been here yet, but I have tried one of their cakes..for my engagement no less! My (now) fiancé took me to Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe (right next door to Morning Glory) after he popped the question. Being new to the area, he didn't know where he could get us a celebratory cake..and naturally Dirty Dog suggested their sister restaurant - Morning Glory. The cake was perfect - rich,,moist..just delicious..and with a little decoration congratulating us on our big day - just like my fiancé wanted! It was waiting for us at our table in Dirty Dog as soon as we arrived..and was the perfect finish to our very special day. Can't wait to try out all of the other treats at Morning Glory. :)

Jumps

Reviews:
We usually eat at Jumps once a week and the food is consistently excellent. The service is sometimes a bit slow however this is not a fast food restaurant so I guess I don't expect to be rushed. Personal favorites include the crab cake appetizer, the seared salmon, Coq Au Vin, Porcini Dusted Beef Tenderloin, Pecan Crusted Whitefish and unexpectedly one of the best cheeseburgers in town! If you are hungry the angel hair pasta with Lobster and Scallops is delicious. My wife and I usually will eat here with our children and then head over to the elementary school next door to let the children play on the playground-as a result this has become our children's favorite restaurant!
I was highly disappointed. The atmosphere was strange......no one was in the restaurant and the staff stood around gossiping. The food was awful, and the bar was non existent meaning no bartender and limited top shelf liquor, my fiance and I were highly disappointed. The staff were staring like they couldn't wait for us to leave. We'll never be back..........over priced crap.
Very solid neighborhood eatery. Everything is always very fresh. Never really been dissatisfied with anything on the menu. It's simple fare, but it's all done very well. I'm a big fan of the scallop salad, and their sandwiches are all very solid. Given the death of good dining in Grosse Pointe, I really wish that there were more restaurants like Jumps. It's priced affordably (under $15). Ambience and food are hip enough to attract a younger crowd while still remaining quiet enough for the senior crowd.

Noble Pig

Reviews:
Had an excellent meal at Noble Pig tonight. My friend and I concentrated on the Thai cuisine as we already know how delicious all of the barbecue selections are. Anyone who loves Thai food should stop in because it was a real treat, vegetable rolls, cashew chicken and more! Our server did a great job and we waddled out with our leftovers to take home and enjoy. Fifty million thumbs up for a memorable dinner and delightful hospitality, definitely worth the drive from Wisconsin to visit a favorite.
Four tables in the whole place, very limited seating. Luckily I didn't have to wait for a seat. Amazing food. I had the Texas something or other sandwich, and dining companion had the Cuban. 5 stars for each. Rich flavors, good textures, perfect amount of sauce already on the sandwiches. They had four divergent kinds of sauce you could add to your meal to your liking. The boobs sauce was probably my favorite. Carolina gold was a nice vinegar sauce, but still with a little sweet to it. My waiter was pretty attentive, talkative, likable, and even offered to to box up my leftovers for me. Great service. He's also the only person I've ever had offer me an Arnold Palmer drink. My complaint: they sold out of ALL their desserts... All of them except the ice cream. But who orders plain ice cream for dessert? I give them 4 stars really only because they didn't have any of the advertised desserts. Everything else was great! I'll definitely be back.
Had the pulled pork and it was solid. Tried all three BBQ sauces, the Detroit sauce was my favorite--sweet with just a bit of vinegar tang.
