Date Night near Canton, MI

I'm wanting to take my husband out for date night to somewhere good. Problem is, he is a very picky eater. So Thai, sushi, Japanese won't work. He's more of a steak and fries kinda guy. And he doesn't like anything super fancy, casual is best. And nothing too expensive as we are on a pretty tight budget. I'm open to Canton, Plymouth, Livonia, Novi, Northville, Ann Arbor, or Ypsi. Those areas. Thanks!

  1. Steve and Rocky's in Novi is always solid. They have a wide selection and there's always a steak dish on the menu. Very affordable (especially at lunch) and very casual. If you want a little fancier and are willing to go a bit more north to Wixom, try Volare. It's an italian restaurant that serves steaks. Steaks are about $30 and they are fully garnished (starch & veg) and come with a pretty decent house salad.

    1. If you're going to Novi, consider Diamond Jim Brady's , also in the Town Center by the movies. Karl's Cabin out on North Territorial is different and kinda neat. They have pretty good steaks, etc. and the atmosphere is unique.

        I would also recommend Diamond Jim's. Much better than Steve & Rocky's IMHO. In fact, I don't really care for S&R's. I think it's over priced and lacks atmosphere.

          Agreed with both of the previous posters about DJB. *Especially* when thinking of someone who's steak oriented, DJB is the way to go. I love their filet, but do note that it does tend to get cooked on the rare side, which is fine by me. Better too rare than too well done.

            Well said Rheta. I agree 100%.

              I liked S&R better when it was Northville Charley's....

              For those that remember.... :)

        2. Little Italy in Northville has great Italian in a quaint setting.
