Walled Lake Bar & Restaurant Recommendations

CAYA Smokehouse Grill
1403 S Commerce Rd.
Walled Lake, MI 48390
(248) 858-5800

If you like a great smokehouse and grill, CAYA is the place for you. Home to some of the best BBQ food in all of Michigan, this restrain is amazing. If you're into spicy, you cannot miss out on their Polish sausage. But if you're looking for honest BBQ food, their ribs are to die for. With just the right amount of BBQ sauce and smoked to perfection, these ribs are entirely filling and super delicious. And if you're looking for something a bit lighter (or less expensive), anything they do with pork is sure to please - from the pulled pork sandwich to the pork belly.

Lulu's of Commerce
1001 Welch Rd.
Walled Lake, MI 48390
(248) 669-1937

For a more upscale coney island diner, Lulu's works wonders. The food here is superb. Whether you're going for their buffalo chicken salad or even their omelettes (which are stuffed to the max), this restaurant has some great food. While there's no shortage of healthy food, like their house sales or chicken Greek, you can also find some amazing coney dogs if you're into that kind of thing. A beautiful ambiance, an excellent waitstaff and a great menu all make this restaurant one of Walled Lake's finest.

Sushi Den
716 N Pontiac Trail
Walled Lake, MI 48390
(248) 960-1141

While Walled Lake is packed with upscale American style diners, the city also has some wonderful ethnic dining options. And with the Sushi Den, this city has Japanese food covered. The sushi here is both tasty and artful, as evidenced by their beautiful sushi platters. While the sushi is by far the main attraction here, you can still take advantage of numerous Japanese specialties, like their shrimp tempura Udon soup. And if you're feeling adventurous, be sure to order up their Sanma, a type of pike served whole.

L. George's Coney Island
1203 S Commerce Rd.
Walled Lake, MI 48390
(248) 960-5700

In a city full of coney islands both big and small, L. George's is Walled Lake's shining gem. This restaurant offers huge portion sizes, so whether you order their omelettes or their chicken Greek salad, you can almost always count of a snack for later. While they have a complete menu, with coney dogs, gyros, chicken pitas and superb hamburgers, this place is great for breakfast. Their omelets are huge, and their breakfast sides are at a good price, so nearly anybody can make their own personalized breakfast plate.

Jeff's Kitchen
1130 E West Maple Rd.
Walled Lake, MI 48390
(248) 669-8896

Don't let the name fool you: Jeff's Kitchen is home to Walled Lake's best Chinese food. This restaurant is very authentic, from the menu and the decor to the delicious Shanghai specialties they serve. Their sautéed pork belly is hands down one of the best dishes on the menu. However, their braised pork shoulder with a wonderful garlic sauce is worth the extra buck. Whether you're looking for something spicy, sour or sweet, you can find it at Jeff's Kitchen.

Volare Ristorante
6159 Haggerty Rd.
West Bloomfield, MI 48322
(248) 960-7771

And to finish on an upscale note, Volare Ristorante is one of the area's hottest restaurants. While you'll have to travel to the next city over, West Bloomfield, the trip is definitely worth it for Italian food junkies. Here you'll be awarded some of the best pasta sides around. Their Penne dish is Italian perfection, along with their chicken parmigiana. And meat lovers: make sure you try the chicken scarpiello. The ambiance matches the food perfectly as well, as this restaurant has a beautiful brick interior and wonderfully polished seating and tables.
