Michigan Restaurant Reviews

I started this site to review restaurants in Mid-Michigan and I don’t want that to get lost in the mix as I post more news and opinion on issues that affect Mid-Michigan.  So, to check out all of my reviews….

If for some reason you get to a page other than the one you were looking for, which is entirely possible, just do a search in the search box on the right.  It took me  five hours to create this page and I’m sure I made some mistakes. ….

Your links are whacked. Olympic Broil and Panera Bread both take you to Olympic Broil. Thanks.

I’m sure there’s a lot of links like that.

Just noticed two places that aren’t on your Lansing hit list
– The Exchange
– The Knight Cap

SW Michigan Dining

Before we hastily picked up and moved out of Lansing, we actually had plans to go to the Knight Cap for my birthday (which is tomorrow)….I even almost made reservations before we left town for the wedding. J ate there when she interviewed for the job in Lansing. Was turned off by the smokiness and she’s not much of a beefeater. Loved the intimacy of the place though and was willing to give it a second chance after they went smoke free.

I didn’t even realize The Exchange served food.

A new sports bar & restaraunt in Fraser, MI. Great atmosphere, good food and really nice staff. They have two projection televisions, 13 flat screens, perfect place to watch a game. Warning, don’t go if you don’t want to have fun! Check it out for yourself!

Enso Review
Nov. 19, 2010

When I think about restaurants in the East Lansing area, Enso is not the first thing I envision. However, that’s what makes it so notable. It has a Vegas-vibe (the good vibe, I assure you) that one doesn’t expect to see in its remote location. When you’re approaching Enso, you get an immediate upscale feel. It’s almost intimidating, but instantly comfortable when you’re through the doors. This restaurant /bar/lounge combination has a sophisticated, classy and Zen-like atmosphere. The space is beautifully designed and it’s perfect for all sorts of entertaining needs. I happened to go on Wednesday night, which is when the local jazz musician delivers a smooth performance that matched my glass of Pinot Noir. Dinner consisted of Vegetable Tempura and Calamari, both nicely complimented with a sweet chili dipping sauce. We were served generous portions for fair prices. At this point, my spirits were high, and I’m assuming that’s the effect they are hoping for. It’s nice to have a reliable spot in mind when I need to plan a birthday party or small get together. Gourmet food, attentive staff, a plethora of fine wines and pleasing aesthetics. Enso gets an elated two thumbs up.

ENSO is where it’s at! The nightlife and food is absolutely amazing!

chicken coop

You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually one thing which I feel I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complex and very wide for me. I am having a look forward in your subsequent post, I?ll attempt to get the hold of it!

I visited multiple websites however the audio feature
for audio songs present at this web page is really fabulous.
