I'm looking for a moderately-priced restaurant in Oakland or Macomb County for my wedding rehearsal dinner. Any suggestions?

    I am sure there are dozens to choose from, but I'd suggest Sweet Lorraine's in Southfield (Greenfield just north of Twelve Mile). Though it's been awhile since I've been there, the menu is wide-ranging and ought to offer something for everyone. Great atmosphere, too.

    You might also consider Steve and Rocky's in Novi. They have a great way with fish, their soups are worth the trip on their own . . . I've never been disappointed there.

    Congratulations; all the best for a happy future.

      Agree with Sweet Lorraine's-they have a small dining room off the main room that's quiet and can hold a group. You can even have a specific menu developed --choice of several entrees, and a bar set up. Everything's good, lots of choices for vegetarians and carnivores, generally good service and a convivial atmosphere.

      High end, I'd try Northern Lakes Fish, a Matt Prentice restaurant or, if you want to blow the bank, a private room at the Townsend Hotel.

          It will probably be 20 to 25 people.

          My son and daughter in law had their rehearsal dinner at Dave & Buster's in Utica. They had a private room with a nice buffet but the best part was the fun everyone had afterward in the game area. Food was good, but casual. I'd suggest it for a fun crowd.

            My brother had his for about 30 people in a private room at McCromick & Schmick's in Troy. They did a very nice job and the space was beautiful. A chain restaurant but still classy.
