Where to Eat Outdoors This Summer

          With the summer months now in full swing, it’s time we get out and enjoy all things outdoors before the snow falls once again.  Not only are there ample parks and recreation in beautiful southeast Michigan, but those in the local community can enjoy all the local restaurants with outdoor amenities near Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills, as well.

          From up-and-coming trendy bars to an evening meal in downtown, enjoy the summertime with these select nearby restaurants with available outdoor seating:

Grand Tavern

          Conveniently located just down S. Adams Rd., south of M-59, Grand Tavern is just down the street from Parkways of Auburn Hills!  With such a convenient location, it can be hard to pass up Grand Tavern’s signature burgers and generous specials, like their all-you-can-eat fish and chips on Fridays.  This can be your new favorite hangout spot for a nice indoor-and-outdoor setting with great food and a friendly atmosphere for a quick bite out.

CK Digg’s

          Located at the corner of S. Rochester Rd. and W. Auburn Rd., CK Digg’s is a locally owned American bar and restaurant with a great twist to the traditional American cuisine.  Featuring a wide selection of beer to Digg’s signature pizzas, CK Digg’s is a local favorite located fairly close to our Parkways Apartments.

Alibi of Troy

          A classic, the Alibi of Troy is home to Troy’s longest-standing restaurant establishment serving classic American homemade cuisine.  Featuring their award-winning pizza and newly renovated indoor-outdoor seating, the Alibi of Troy is your cozy joint for some of the tastiest comfort food in the area.  Conveniently located off of S. Rochester Rd., just south of M-59, renters in Auburn Hills are not too far from enjoying a nice, worthwhile meal.

The Jagged Fork

          Bringing you an eccentric twist on breakfast and lunch, The Jagged Fork of Rochester Hills is located inside of the Village of Rochester Hills.  From sweet-or-savory crepes to several “Fork Favorite” specialties – such as the Very Berry Stuffed French Toast, The Jagged Fork takes breakfast cuisine to a whole new level.  This is the kind of place you can enjoy outdoors before or after you get all your shopping done in the Village.

Clubhouse BFD

          Featuring ownership from Griffin Claw Brewing Company, Clubhouse BFD (Beer-Food-Drink) serves only the most quality food and beverages.  With an extensive list of house and featured beers, Clubhouse BFD is a welcoming spot located just north of M-59 off of Crooks Rd.  Enjoy the cozy atmosphere and the neighborhood feel of this wonderful exhibit of craft beer.

Michigan by the Bottle

          A local favorite, Michigan by the Bottle is more than just your average wine bar.  With plenty of Michigan wines, as well as other fine import selections, MBTB is the perfect spot in downtown Auburn Hills to kick back after a long day.  If you aren’t sure which wines to try, give a tasting flight a try, and you’ll get a $5 credit towards a bottle to take home.  Situated right on the main Auburn Rd. strip, MBTB features small plates and packaged treats, so it’s the perfect place to relax for a nightcap after having your dinner.

Dimitri’s Opa Restaurant & Bar

          Dimitri’s Opa Restaurant & Bar is also at the heart of downtown Auburn Hills, right on the corner of S. Squirrel Rd. and Auburn Rd.  Dimitri’s is a relatively new eatery with ample outdoor seating featuring a wide variety of Mediterranean favorites.  With 24 beers on tap and a selection of fine wines, Dimitri’s is a great hangout restaurant this summer if you are out and about shopping in or strolling through the downtown area.

Family Table Café

          The Family Table Café is one of the other restaurants in downtown Auburn Hills catered to the early birds and brunch lovers of the area.  With closing times no later than 3:00 daily, the Family Table Café has an exclusive breakfast, lunch, and bakery menu featuring some pleasant twists to the traditional American cuisine.  From scrumptious scones to Nutella and banana-stuffed French toast, Family Table Café is a great, local family favorite where everyone is sure to find something good to eat.
