On a recent business trip my boss and I asked the front desk for a dinner spot. We we're staying at the Westin Southfield and several members of the team there said Nikola's. We were told the food was really good and the price reasonable. We were amazed with the menu that as thick as a book. You can get... More

Took a group of eleven family members for lunch on a Sunday. We called ahead for reservations, but were told they were not accepted. It worked out fine, since we got there a bit before noon, beat the crowd, and were seated right away. The service was excellent throughout. I made a note of the servers name so that I... More

This place has been serving food here for at least 32 years. I went here as a kid, food is like I remember. Breasted chicken and fries is what I liked most.

Met friends yesterday. We drive 30 minutes to this place. The waitress Daja was great. Generous portions. Great food. Need to go early. Place is always busy.

My family comes here from time to time to enjoy the hash browns that we would load up with cheese, sour cream and bacon but they're no longer on the menu. Granted, we've experienced them running out of this dish on a Sunday but taking them off the menu was a big mistake in my (unsolicited) opinion. What I do... More

Absolutely the best BBQ ribs anywhere. No par boil/cook here. All rotisserie from beginning to your plate. Enjoy.

Great service with so so good. I got the chicken drummys and they were over cooked - should have sent them back and had a new order made. The salad was fresh and really good.

Food was good but took lot of time to come and also the check. We are in five people expecting to spend one hour and it took almost two.

Someone recommended this place to me and it lived up to the hype. We had burgers and fries to go and the food came out hot and looking good. They show you your food before you leave. The portions are so huge that we ate the same meal for lunch and dinner. The person who took our order was not... More

If you like fall off the bone ribs, this place is it. The ribs are absolutely delicious. Great choice of sides. Service is superb. Server checks often for drink refills. Quickly brought us extra napkins too.

Thank B R
