In warm weather, a large, covered outdoor dining area allows outside dining. The bar serves beer, wine, juice and smoothies. For the harder stuff, examine the small but diverse wine selection and three Michigan craft brews. Salads and veggie-intensive appetizers fill a good portion of the menu. There are even a few unique pita pizzas. As with most Mediterranean cuisines, Lebanese is considered to be a very balanced, healthy diet. If meat is your thing, you can easily fill up with kebabs or shawarma. Lamb is prominent in the form of chops, shanks and kibbeh, a mixture of ground lamb and cracked wheat that can be ordered baked or raw. Of course, there are also a couple fish dishes. The ideal sampler is Anita’s “mixed mezza” — for $30 you get a plate of hummus, tabbouleh, fattoush and crunchy pickled vegetables with a touch of heat and a few other plates. Comes in a vegetarian version for $24. For an fine finish to a meal, order a pot of Turkish coffee and a tender, not-too-sweet piece of baklava. Open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday, and noon-9 p.m. Sunday. Child friendly. No smoking.
If you're in the know about metropolitan nightlife then chances are you've heard of the Bosco, the trendy bar lurking behind frosted glass windows in downtown Ferndale. This hot spot has great music, a cool atmosphere, and often hosts a good-looking crowd of "scenesters, fashionistas, minimumwage celebrities and bibulous professional freeloaders."
Whether it's pizza, pasta, or anything that can conceivably be breaded and deep-fried, this fixture on the corner of Nine Mile and Woodward has been serving it up since 1961. Rain or shine, Como's sheltered outdoor dining area offers a place for al fresco eating and open-air boozing.
Upscale but not uptight! Chicago/N.Y. lounge atmshphere with great food and better service. Brunch until 3 p.m. on the weekends with bottomless mimosas and build-your-own Bloodys. Great happy hour 2-7 p.m. Mon-Fri and all day Tuesday.
Grapevine-wrapped pillars, classical background music and jeweled murals. Entrees prepared to order. Vegetable broth-based French onion soup, bay scallops poached in vermouth. Warm salad of duck confit and lobster. Pastries are beautiful to behold.
With New Orleans-flavored prints on the wall and a plea to “let the good times roll” in Cajun French above the bar, the atmosphere is laid-back, with dark wood panels, tables and a long, graceful bar, the slender space is cozy under low-hung ceiling fans. All but the most fainthearted of eaters should try the crawfish boil. If you’re not so bold, order the crunchy and mild deep-fried popcorn crawdad tails or the more refined crawfish cakes. Out of the 10 “po’ boy” sandwiches served on a French loaf with fresh Southern slaw, the one packed with sweet and tender pan-fried Andouille sausage-encrusted oysters is always a pleaser. The dark roux-based crawfish étouffée is a good choice off the entrée menu, though there have been times it hasn’t had the deep, roasted-nut essence you expect from that preparation. Though small, the drink lists are carefully considered. There are no bottles of wine costing more than $30 and the selection is surprisingly diverse.
With a wide-ranging menu, striking presentations and quality cocktails, Inyo has sparked a buzz in Ferndale's dining scene. The dishes have not just flavor, but pleased texture contrasts within a dish. Take the cold appetizer maguro yookwhe: Strips of raw, lean tuna are deepened by a quail-egg topping and served with crunchy sliced Asian pear and a spicy dipping sauce. The hot side of the appetizer menu has everything from unagi (freshwater eel) and avocado rolled in a French crepe to Hong Kong-style spare ribs. Entrées include Inyo's version of kung pao chicken, or pepper steak that's startling in its simplicity. The sushi menu is the standard makimono (rolls), sashimi and nigiri ranges from ordinary maki to specialties, such as the Inyo roll is a marriage of king crab, strawberry, Japanese cucumber and mango sauce all topped with caviar. As usual, the textures and tastes harmonize beautifully. Space sports oversized, wraparound booths and a granite horseshoe bar, with a soundtrack of easygoing nu-disco and downbeat lounge tunes. Excellent specialty cocktails.
For years, some of our most memorable, if sometimes only barely remembered nights in Detroit, have been at the Post Bar on Congress downtown and at the Post East on Mack Avenue. Loud tunes, and people partying shoulder to shoulder and hip to hip are the Post trademarks. The Post Woodward follows the same tradition, of course. However, on our way out to Ferndale we have added a kitchen to the mix. Hearty burgers, chicken, a steak, pizza, Ralph's pasties, and a daily special will be served from 11:30am on. We hope that you enjoy the food and the fun here at the newest Post Bar.
A colorful, unique lounge, and club in downtown Ferndale. The gay-friendly club features DJs spinning house, techno and old-school, and is also available for rental.
Anchored in Ferndale on Nine Mile just west of Woodward Avenue, Q is an eclectic hangout for dancing, drinking and mingling. Upon entrance, patrons are greeted by the animatronic Sally, a John Waters-esque statue who laughs hysterically for the paltry toll of four bits. Although the interior sports the traditional bar set up, said bar is flanked by two beautifully decorated seating areas, a billiards table and a dance floor. Possibly the most appropriate atmosphere for drinks with a drag queen or shaking your groove thing with a potential hook-up, Q is a sanctum for open-minded people who like to have a good time. - J.D.

Come as you are – everyone is welcome at Warrilow's, which has a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. No need to bring friends; you'll have a few new ones by the time you go home!

Join us in the bar for occasional live music and dancing; we also have karaoke, pool tables, darts and air hockey.
"A neighborhood bar with lots of style." The top floor has huge windows overlooking Woodward. Downstairs has a sidewalk cafe and lounge with a view of the brewhouse. The WAB serves a selection of its own microbrewed beer, rootbeer and cream soda that has made the brewery #1 two years in a row. You won't find your typical bar food here, gourmet sandwiches, quesadillas, bruschetta, huge salads, and more.

Be it the art galleries popping up all over, or the bars and coffeehouses along Woodward Avenue and Nine Mile Road, Ferndale is fast becoming the place to be. And when the Woodward Avenue Brewers opened their doors in 1997, they got it absolutely right. With good beer, a creative and healthy menu (WAB serves no fried foods), a stellar jukebox, rotating art exhibits, and one of the most brilliant promotional tools ever (discount nights), the WAB is the kind of place where anyone can have a good time. Whether it's "Sunday $1.50 Well Drink Night" or "Monday Half-Off Food Night" this joint caters to everyone from hungry hipsters to the average Joe. (And while a Friday night spent in the throes of downtown Royal Oak could very easily become reminiscent of an episode of Blind Date, Ferndale still has some class.) - Eve Doster
