Izzy's (Roseville, MI)

I see where Izzy's on the Ave. has closed in St Clair Shores. Does anyone know why and if they relocated? Thank you.

    Can someone tell what kind of place this is? :)

      It's a sandwich shop & cake bakery, Jan. Upscale in ambience & price from most area family restaurants. Plate presentation is handsome and well thought thru.

      I like the place, but...my last lunch there was $14.50 dining solo. That was for a Fat Back Burger, side of onion rings (nothing special) and a small pop.

      No business website--no online menu.

        Wow! $14.50 for that? ::whistles:: That's...a lot. Just for my own sense of understanding: did that total include the tax and tip?

          Tax yes. Tip, no. My 20% of 14.50 was $2.90. My tip was $3.00.

          I had buyers remorse. Skipped meals out for the following two days.

          But...the lunch was pleasing. I just won't put Famous Izzy's on my regular restaurant rotation. Maybe 2/3 times a year.

            Good grief...$17.50 for a burger, nothing-special onion rings and a small pop? I'd be having more than buyer's remorse...I'd be seething. That's out-and-outrageous. I can pretty safely say that I'll *never* be going there.

      They are now open!!!! , I think they moved because they had horrible parking and this is a much better location as well. HUGE BURGERS !!!!!

        But tasteless.

        Stopped today for lunch. Great space. Way upscale from a typical deli environment. Wanted to like it--but couldn't.

        I promise to give the place a second chance...

          Does anyone have the phone number? The one listed is a bar in Roseville called Izzy's. I wanted to order a cake but can't seem to find a good number for them.

              Because there is an Izzy's bar in a bowling alley in Roseville, the new location on Little Mack at 13 Mile Road is called Famous Izzy's.

                Famous Izzy's? I wonder if there's an association with the small chain of Izzy's around the Cincinnati area. They tout their famous corned beef.

                I'm only an hour or so from Cincy. I wait for when I visit the family in Michigan to take care of any deli fixes I need to take care of.

                  No connection whatsoever, Fibber.

            Izzy's (Roseville, MI) is opening a deli at the corner of 13 Mile and Greater Mack (behind the Speedway). It wasn't open the last time I went past, but they have been working on it.
