What we're about

We are a group of friendly people who seek gratifying and unique dining out experiences. We discover hidden gems while exploring this active city of ours. We've been dining out all over the Detroit metro area for more than 16 years. Its a big dinner table and all are welcome. Discover great little restaurants while meeting new people. We meet, we eat, we sip and we savor. We discover new faces and places, we discover old gems. We gather and meet all over SE Michigan.

This place is always a popular one and it finally takes reservations for more than just a couple times each evening. If you can't find something you like, you are just too picky. Soups, Salads, Pizza, Burgers, and other entrees. Save room for dessert. Prices are very reasonable for the amount of food you get. Click link for website and menu.

They have valet parking that in the past cost $5 but could be more.

Please keep your RSVP current and only sign up if you really want to come. If you end up on the wait list and still can come, let me know the day before. Many restaurants are stopping accepting reservations from Meetup groups because of NO SHOWS or charging for empty seats.

Dinner at Ford's Garage in Dearborn

Ford's Garage Dearborn

Our members always enjoy the food, choices of drinks, and the cool decor every time we have come here. Enough parking and easy to get to from the Southfield Fwy. Menu full of Burgers, Salads, Appetizers, and comfort entrees. Something for everyone. Just look at the Menu.

Menu:

As normal, please get on the going list ONLY IF YOU WANT TO EAT THERE and not just saving it on your calendar just in case nothing better comes along. Dropping out the week before does count against your total of no shows or late drops. We need to be fair to other members, we have over 600, the staff and owners of the restaurant, and all of organizers of meet up groups that are now having a hard time scheduling events because of no shows. I cut off RSVP 24 hrs before the meal.

Dinner at Bobcat Bonnie's in Ferndale

Bobcat Bonnie's

I have heard about this place and the food for years. With lots of parking behind the place and interesting stores near it, it is a good place to enjoy on a cold winter's evening. Menu full of sandwiches, salads, burgers, shareables, and entrees, you should be able to find something or even more than one to enjoy.
