I ordered Brioni's Pizza for the heck of it one day after deciding I was tired of Carlo's pizza being my normal "go to" pizza place in Harrison Township. I ordered the Chicken Margarita, and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pizza itself. The dough tasted and looked hand tossed and not pre-prepared and frozen. The sauce, although slightly light, had an amazing garlic flavor for the margarita pizza. The tomatoes and chicken were very fresh also. A side of Brioni bread tastes like a homemade version of crazy bread, and was delicious. I also ordered a cinnamon claw, and was thoroughly surprised by the freshness of it. It tasted like fresh cinnamon and sugar on fresh dough. The only disappointment was the icing, which came in a commercial packaging and was obviously not homemade (which homemade icing isn't exactly rocket science to make). Overall, very good bang for the buck. All three items, plus delivery, were around $20, not including tip. Pizza arrive super warm and fresh, and on time according to the woman who took my order. Definitely will give good old Carlo's, or even the Harrison Twp. pride and joy pizza (Luigi's) a run for their money. So if you're looking to try a new pizza place in the HTP/CTP area, they're worth a shot!
Very good pizza and sandwiches. Chicken parm sandwich was excellent. Very friendly staff. Brioni's is take out only and delivery.
This is one of the best pizza's that I have had! Great salad great pizza, easily five stars. Usually I don't take the time to write a review but this was just to good not to!

This is a very good local pizza place. It may not get as much notoriety as Jet's, Little Caeser's and Hungry Howies, but if you are in the boat town area, please do yourself a huge favor and check them out. You must get the Chicago Stuft Pizza, it is very tasty. It is so good that you can't have just one piece. Customer service is very good. One time the order was not on time, and me and my girlfriend were getting a little agitated with having to wait. They ended up giving us free dessert with the meal. And it was very good. It didn't look very appetizing with pizza, but it actually was quite delicious. I recommend this place to anyone in the area. It's one of our backyard treasures!
I mostly eat here for lunch considering its pretty close. Their slices are only $1, and they are very filling. I recommend to anyone in the area.
I just ordered two slices and a four piece sesame bread for THREE DOLLARS. Not only is this place affordable, but it's also very delicious. Props to the staff as well- chill place. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

Luigi’s Original Restaurant

36691 Jefferson Ave
Harrison Township, 48045
Reviews:
I went there yesterday and was told how wonderful the food is. I ordered a pasta seafood dish that was almost all soggy pasta. My wife had chicken parmessian which was at best mediocre but my mother ordered veal and it was pretty good. The waitress was about as good as I have ever had which is the only reason I give it two stars. I understand there steaks and prime rib are excellent but when I go to an Italian restaurant, I was hoping for a good Italian dish. The Olive Garden nserves a much better dish then here. Maybe I will try their pizza but don't waste your money on the Italian dishes.
While I fell in love with my wife in Orlando, I proposed to her in the corner booth right here at Luigi's. Luigi's was my regular Wednesday dinner choice. I am however a creature of habit and always ordered pizza, salad and yes, Luigi's homemade bread. Their bread is perhaps the best around and I can honestly admit that I carbo-loaded on more than one occasion barely making through the salad and having to take the pizza home. Regardless, I win either way. One thing I noted was that Luigi's was serving an inordinate amount of steaks. Perhaps 1/3 of all diners were enjoying these massive cuts of prime beef. Eventually, I gave in to my curiosity on the steak. I'll discuss later. The pizza for me was always a large Luigi Special which comes with ham, real pepperoni, onion, green pepper and mushroom. Add anchovies of course. The crust is crusty and chewy yielding that wonderful sesame flavor from the seeds. At around $17.00, it isn't exactly a Hot & Ready but certainly well worth the quality of ingredients that Luigi's uses. The difference is clearly noticeable and worth it. Then one day, after hitting the 4-digit lottery and claiming my prize, I decided it was a day for me. I ordered the prime rib king's cut and I can only say not only was it worth the $25.00 or so, but they gave me what looked to be a double portion. It was huge. Beyond huge it was so damn tender and flavorful. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I took enough home and made an incredible pot of beef barley from the leftovers. A few days transpire and I decided the celebration must continue. I went back and ordered the filet Rockefeller style. The addition of the bacon, spinach and cheese was fantastic and didn't at all take away from the full flavor of my filet cooked rare. Now I got it. I can vouch for the meat ravioli and the chicken Siciliano. That ammoglio sauce is incredible. I also believe that the broiled whitefish dinner is arguably one of the best in the state. If you opt to order the whitefish Siciliano, ask them to broil it without the breadcrumbs and just add the ammoglio sauce on top of it. The breadcrumbs somehow take away from the quality of the fish. Sadly, I have never made it to dessert but most of it is homemade and the tirimisu is quite popular. Folks, it ain't cheap but it's worth it. For the price, you will get yourself a quality meal and truly this is the best restaurant in the area. Pass Terry's and come right here for the same money. This location is small and wildly popular so dining in may cause you to wait at peak dining times. If I am choosing to eat at either this location or their in downtown Mt. Clemens, I choose this one every time. Don't know what it is, just have a better meal and a better experience. BTW-the young lady that I proposed to here said, "yes" and we're still married eight years later with two beautiful kids.
Why did it take me this long to find out this place existed?!? Holy Cannolli Luigis is surely the treasure of Harrison Township, if not of the entire Metro Detroit area. Almost every dish I've tried has been delicious and beautifully plated. The atmosphere is quaint and friendly. It's such a great place for a night out on a date or a special occasion with it's lovely decor, music playing, and laughter heard all around. My favorite part is how they are equipped with a full carry out menu. I've let Luigis make us dinner for the last 2 days straight! Easy ordering, presentation is not spared for carryout! I love this place.

I love their Meat-Lovers deep dish square pizza. It hits the spot every time, including tonight. Easy parking, Warm, bright and clean inside, friendly staff. No inside seating, actually, no outside seating either.
The best crispy crust on their square pizzas, the BBQ chicken pizza is one I recommend to newbies. Their brownies are awesome too.
Was late 3:30 pm Sunday afternoon & needed 1 slice to take the edge off, I doubted that they sold slices on a Sunday... but they DID! CARLO'S Pizza was well staffed with super friendly young men, who welcomed me, assured me they had slices & even tricked it out with Butter/Parmesan . I personally love the BITE their Sauce has.

Love the staff & the cheap drinks:) Got to love the neighborhood bar! The only thing I would request is a couple windows but I think their working on it!
Love this little townie bar. Stiff drinks, good prices, and if you see me there on a Friday or Saturday night - I'm probably signing Karaoke. Bartending staff is super friendly as are the waitresses. They have one pool table and a dart machine.
Great place for a burger, beer & ball game, :) .

Check out my review on their other page. It's a nice building with a lot of potential but I was really disappointed in the food and the service. Food was average at best, but the service was flat out poor. The place has tons of potential, and for such a competitive field for events, weddings, etc. there are many better places out there.
Went to a wedding reception here and was impressed as we drove in but that is where it ended. The wait staff were horribly disorganized. The beef was some of the toughest and fat laden beef ever. Servers were waiting for food from the kitchen as food trickled out. Multiple servers carrying two plates at a time with over 200 hundred guests took forever to get served and it continued on through other portions of dinner. We felt bad for the bridal party about how bad it was- ruined a potentially wonderful night........... Would not recommend this place at all. See their facebook page and the people ranting about how bad the management is at this establishment........AVOID IT HANDS DOWN!
Estimated at over 500 in attendance today, we were having lunch with the governor this afternoon during an annual luncheon sponsored by Omega Solutions and hosted by the Macomb County Chamber Alliance. I'll have to admit, this was my first time visiting the MacRay conference center. We were seated in the upper conference room, which provided an outstanding view of beautiful Lake St. Clair. The audio-visual presentations were perfect, allowing everyone to either see the speakers directly or on the large screens. Wait staff were cordial, seasoned veterans and did an excellent job of providing food, taking away dishes and serving platters when no longer needed. Apparently this was a tea-totaler crowd, as when I went to the bar to request my favorite flavor of Bud Light, I was told they were not serving beer during the luncheon. A similar response was provided when I requested a Rum-n-Coke. Okay, I'll have a Rum-n-Coke, hold the rum. They have Sunday brunch, with extended hours for special occasions, such as the upcoming Mother's Day offerings at their Harbor Grille Bistro. Valet parking available. Check out their MacRay website for an extensive listing of their various menus and banquet and catering options.

Little mom & pop restaurant for breakfast & lunch. Staff are friendly, nice, and quick on refills. my friend, boyfriend, ands I came here to have brunch. I got the breakfast combo #3 :pancakes, 2 eggs, and 2 bacons. Pancakes was soft and my crispy bacon was not greasy. My friend got the #3 combo but she got french toast instead. Her french toast was good too. My boyfriend had combo #2: 2 eggs, 2 ham, 2 bacons, 2 sausage, hashbrowns, and toast. Prices are decent and food is pretty good.
Stopped here on a bike ride and were very happy. Quick service, drink refills without asking and really nice staff. We had a grilled chicken sandwich and a Russian Reuben. Both were served hot, made well and very tasty. We also shared a side of fries that were really good and served hot. Very good experience.
I look forward to going to this restaurant every week with my family on Sunday, not only for the awesome food but also to see the most wonderful/hard working work staff around town. The restaurant is owned by a wonderful family that treats their customers like they're family. Great place..Great food ...Great people...what more could you ask for? P.s. the Greek salads are amazing!

Reviews:
I have been driving past the place for years and the parking lot is ALWAYS filled. That is why I tried it on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Nice seating layout. It's a primarily a bar with extra seating for the restaurant. Seating was comfortable. Easy visibility to several TVs (sports on). Service was quick and friendly. The menu was wide ranging without being overwhelming. Food was excellent (tried fish-n-chips & Slim Jim) Added this to me short list of regular haunts.
We've been coming in here for years but unfortunately the food quality has been in a steadily decline for the past year. The owner has seen my wife and I at least 100 times but still pretends he doesn't know us. I think he's only interested in hanging out with his "buddies". The last time we went there the food was overcooked and the portions were small. It's too bad because we've had such good meals there in the past. We will not be returning until the quality picks up. Try the River Rats down the street they are much better.
We visited on Saturday, pretty early, 4pm. Just got off the boat, and was starving. Given the time, there was not a lot of folks eating, but many in the bar, (watching the games.). But, we had a really good meal. Hubby had the special which was Cajun grits w shrimp n sausage. This was really, really good, (sauce and shrimp were above average), but lacked real andouille sausage. Would have been perfect without the standard sausage. The sizzling steak was cooked to perfection. We have been before, and had pizza both times. Have to say, this was one of the best pizzas we have had.... And we are kind of pizza snobs... Will go again... And again ...

Empire Chinese Restaurant

26040 Crocker Blvd
Harrison Township, 48045
Reviews:
It's been a long time since a take-out Chinese place impressed me, but I was blown away by the flavor profile in their Sesame Chicken! Very nice and garlicky sauce with the perfect balance of savory and sweet (not overly syrupy), and the chunks of chicken were perfectly juicy and crispy fried...not dried out with soggy breading. The portions are huge too, and prices are very reasonable. Dinner combination came with chicken fried rice and a chicken egg roll (which was just ok, nothing amazing) for $8 after tax. I would probably order with steamed white rice instead of the fried next time, and perhaps ask for a little extra broccoli with the chicken. I am just so glad the closest Chinese place to my new house is a good one! I will be back...next up, Singapore Noodles...
The steamed dumplings were good! The cashew chicken was less so. Asked for "extra spicy" and it was not spicy at all. Wouldn't say I'd make the trip up here for it (was finishing a day of fishing on lake st clair) but I'd consider stopping for a bite if I felt like some Chinese if I were already up there. Still nothing special based on one trip. Dumplings good. Cashew chicken was like every other meh Chinese joint in Detroit. The chicken was sorta square shaped and strip like - seemed a bit like it was reconstituted chicken or perhaps canned.
Great service. The staff is very friendly and work hard for your food! Their string green beans are truly amazing! Sesame Chicken and sauce is amazing. Good stuff!

Lake Breeze Restaurant

35450 Jefferson Ave
Harrison Township, 48045
Reviews:
Lake Breeze is a cool, laid back breakfast nook with a great specials menu and a good, strong cup of coffee. Staff is nice and the cup was always warm and full. If I could ask for more from it, they would deliver. Great place to start your day!
Middle of the road reviews are the hardest to write. Lake Breeze isn't deserving of a bad review, because I didn't find their food bad ... but I don't find it awesome either. I think the problem is the size of their menu. Lunch and dinner alone, they probably have close to 100 items. The result is that many are good, none are great, and some downright suffer. Being a jack-of-all-trades works for a handyman, but not so much a restaurant; if I want Italian, I want QUALITY Italian. Ditto for Greek, Polish or American. They do ALL FOUR (plus seafood and breakfast). It's overwhelming to pick from as a diner, and it leaves all the food lacking that extra something to make it memorable. Another diner right down the road that I've reviewed, I'll crawl over my mother to eat there. Here? My family will eat there because it's inexpensive and convenient. That's it. I feel like if they cut the menu in half and really put a focus on certain things, their food would be better than "alright". Getting a ridiculous amount of food for the price is nice; their burgers are big, their pasta seems never-ending, and their salads are a meal for two. But a lot of average food doesn't make it all great; it just makes a lot of average food. Long story short: good for a bite when you need food quick and easy, but it probably won't be a primary destination.
The food's not bad (not great, but not bad)... but the service will leave a nasty taste in your mouth. I ordered a carry out and realized I got the wrong one when i got home. So I called and told them they gave me the wrong order and the lady told me to come pick it up. I have to admit I was upset because the "Sorry" I received was about as heart warming as a bowl of day old oatmeal... ew... so when I went to pick up my new order I wanted a better apology than "Yeah... sorry..." but when I asked for one, I was told I was wrong, and ordered the wrong order. Really? I ordered the wrong order, you didn't write it down wrong or it didn't get messed up in the kitchen. I was wrong... Wow. I will never return to this godawful restaurant that tries to pass itself off as Greek... Puh-leese.... If you want okay food but the worst service of your life go to Lake Breeze. Horror-ble service just in time for Halloween. If the waiters only looked like they acted they would have a haunted attraction!
