Definitely one of our favorite places to dine and drink in the nearby Okemos area alongside Alaiedon. We have enjoyed the filet mignon here so many times over the years, and even the simpler things like the potato skins are just too good to be believed. The prices are a bit high, but we'd vouch for the fact that every single dish is worth the premium cost. There's plenty of room here for groups, making it perfect for party bus trips. The full bar makes it the right choice for nights out with friends too. Find it at 3544 Meridian Crossings in nearby Okemos.

We are always in search of good steakhouses in Michigan, because we can't get enough of a perfectly cooked steak and even some amazing seafood. Gilbert & Blake's is definitely one that you'll find at the top of the charts, so to speak, every single time. The style of dress is definitely what we'd call upscale classy, yet the prices are quite affordable for being a high quality steakhouse. We adore their lobster grilled cheese, and it pairs so well with a hearty serving of their tomato soup. Find Gilbert & Blake's at 3554 Okemos Rd in nearby Okemos!

This rustic spot definitely lives up to its name, with moose heads hanging on the walls and plenty of woodsy vibes so you can get your hunting trip fix without having to travel too far! Of course there's a full bar here, so you can really enjoy throwing back some drinks with your friends, but the big draw as far as we are concerned is those huge juicy burgers. Wow.
