♦ Rangoli Indian Cuisine ♦
Rangoli Indian Cuisine is a fabulous Indian and Pakistani restaurant where you can get all your favorites such as sambar, chicken tikka masala, and naan. They have an awesome lunch buffet here that will be a great introduction to Indian food if you're new to it, and it's also one of the least expensive ways to get a great lunch in Auburn Hills. They have a room in the back that's available to rent for private parties, and we'd recommend that very highly for your upcoming events. This is definitely the best Indian food you will find in the area, and we recommend it very highly for dine-in buffet and carryout. You'll be able to find this gem at 3055 E Walton Boulevard.
♦ Rainforest Cafe ♦
Rainforest Cafe is one of our favorite restaurants located in Great Lakes Crossing mall. It's always a joy to come in and enjoy that wonderful food in that amazing atmosphere. If you haven't been here, you will be shocked to see the lifelike animatronic jungle animals, the gorgeous aquariums, and the beautiful star-lit sky above you while you dine. Beautiful fountains too. Many times with a restaurant like this, it's all about the ambiance and the food comes second. Here, we believe the food is just as good as the ambiance! Their menu changes quite often so we won't bother to mention favorites here. Everything we've had here is great, so freel free to order anything off that menu and know that what you're getting will be fantastic. You can find Rainforest Cafe at Great Lakes Crossing, at 4000 Baldwin Rd.
♦ Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill ♦
Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill is a great American style bar located at Great Lakes Crossing. We love the sheer size of this bar, and the options on the menu are really plentiful. Somehow we always opt for a burger and a beer, and that's always great. Burger cooked perfectly to order, beer served ice cold as it should be. The service is very friendly and fast here, and you never feel rushed at all. According to our friends the fried macaroni and cheese is really excellent and they loved their tortilla soup too. If you're a club sandwich fan, we've heard that they are really fantastic too! You'll be able to find Toby Keith's I Love This Bar at Great Lakes Crossing, at 4000 Baldwin.
♦ Buddy's Pizza ♦
Buddy's Pizza is a real Detroit tradition, represented perfectly right here in Auburn Hills. Their Detroit square pizza is the best ever, and we so just so hooked on their cheddar bacon ranch fries! This is one of those restaurants where you may want to dig into the pizza with a knife and fork, because it's good and greasy! However we don't mind getting a little messy and it's tough to resist the temptation to dive right into that hot delicious pizza pie! Wonderful salads here too, including a Greek salad that goes well with any pizza on the menu. Enjoy this Detroit favorite right here at 2612 N Squirrel Road in Auburn Hills!
♦ Lelli's Inn ♦
Lelli's Inn is a fabulous Italian steakhouse, really one of the most highly recommended upscale restaurants out there. For truly special occasions, there is no better choice than this. The filet mignon is definitely our favorite thing to order here. Whatever meat you choose to order, it will come with a crisp salad, hot soup, delicious bread, antipasto, pasta, and spumoni. You'll certainly be satisfied here. If you were used to the Detroit location, you'll find that this one is just as good if not better. Great service, wonderful old fashioned ambiance, and just the best food you'll find anywhere in Michigan. You can find Lelli's Inn at 885 N Opdyke Rd.
♦ Miyako Japanese Steakhouse ♦
Miyako Japanese Steakhouse has some of the best Japanese delicacies as well as wonderful sushi! Believe it or not you'll find this wonderful restaurant at Great Lakes Crossing. They have some of the best eel that we have ever tasted, and it's featured in quite a few of their specialty rolls. We especially love the jazz roll and the spicy tuna roll, and most especially that California cream roll! And they have a lot of really great hibachi meals that will satisfy the meat lover in you. As far as the drinks go, we'd recommend the plum wine above anything else. If you are shopping at Great Lakes Crossing and want a dining experience that's a cut above the rest, you cannot go wrong with Miyako. You can find it at 4000 Baldwin Rd.
♦ Palm Palace Restaurant ♦
Palm Palace Restaurant is a Middle Eastern restaurant that we have dined at many times, and we can never seem to get enough of this place! Their falafel sandwiches are really to die for, and how about their shish kabobs? They are out of this world. If you want a truly delicious entree, you can't go wrong opting for the sauteed salmon or the vegetable ghallaba (really any of the ghallabas will do!). Everything is just fantastic here. The prices are a bit higher than most of the other restaurants in the area, but you do get quality and excellent service in return for that. The fresh pitas are fantastic, and we love all their grilled vegetables. Find this one at 2065 N Squirrel Rd.
♦ Red Ox Tavern ♦
Red Ox Tavern is a great American bar, and one of our favorite places to go for chicken wings as well as our favorite beers, wines, and spirits. It's nice to come in and hang out here after work, kicking back with your buddies and just enjoying the ambiance. They have surprisingly great burritos here, and we have really fallen in love with their chicken pot pie. You can't go wrong with their burgers here either, they're always perfectly cooked to order and just so tasty. Try the Italian Panini too! You can choose to sit on the bar side or the restaurant side, and both are exceptionally clean and warmly decorated. Great service here too! You'll be able to locate Red Ox Tavern at 3773 E Walton Blvd. Very highly recommended!
♦ Bar Louie ♦
Bar Louie is another one of our favorite American style bars, this one also located inside of Great Lakes Crossing. Though this is a chain, and we are not big on chain restaurants usually, we just love it. They've got more than three dozen beers on draft, and a great selection of bar fare for you to nosh on. Their happy hour specials are definitely worth taking a look at, and they even have one dollar burger night here! That's unusual at a place like Great Lakes Crossing. Nice place to go to fill up on good food and tasty drinks! You'll be able to find this one at 4390 Baldwin Rd. Don't miss this one when you're shopping maybe before or after a concert or game at The Palace!
♦ Joe's Crab Shack ♦
Joe's Crab Shack gets major props from us for their delicious seafood and fun atmosphere! Kitschy and cheesy are the words that come to mind when you think of this place, but it's not in a bad way. It's cute. And the seafood is top of the line good stuff! They've got great dungeness crab here, wonderful king crab, delicious andouille sausage, cajun spices, and even our favorite... lobster bisque! The servers really know their stuff when it comes to all the fish on the menu too, so ask away and they'll be able to handle all your questions. Delish crayfish here too, which is hard to find in this area! You'll be able to fine Joe's Crab Shack at 4975 S Baldwin.
