Does anyone have a suggestion for a nice place to have brunch after a baptism in the Oakland County area? There would be about 20 people .....

    I haven't tried it, but I've heard that the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester Hills has a very nice brunch.

      Others may (and probably will) disagree, but we've had decent luck with O'Mara's Sunday brunch, if you're looking for a buffet experience.

        Beverly Hills Grille on 13 and Southfield.

          You know, I was at BHG for brunch within the last couple of months, and my friend as well as myself were completely underwhelmed by the food. The service was fine, but the food choices seemed pretty spartan to me, and when I got what I ordered, it really wasn't very good, nor was my friend's. Prices weren't cheap, either.

          I'll put it this way: the both of us wished that we'd gone to Sweet Lorraine's just a few miles away, or even Tavern on 13 just on the opposite corner of 13 Mile and Southfield. BHG wasn't great...in fact, it'll probably be a while before we go back. Don't see what the real draw is, frankly.

          You could not get a party of 20 seated at BHG if your life depended on it.

          Wake up people!

          Royal Park is the way to go.

            Sweet Lorraine's, 12 Mile and Greenfield, now does breakfast/brunch. They have a nice side room that is perfect for private parties; they could easily handle 20 and you'd have a nice array of choices as well from veggie to non, breakfast/brunch or lunch. Not a buffet, but entrees. Quality is always good and always good service---it would be personal, too, not part of a larger dining room buffet. Let us know where you go!
