Light casual meal near Milford Michigan?

On Saturday of Father's Day weekend we will be at Kensington Metropark for a graduation party and after that we'd like to go somewhere in the area for a Father's Day celebration. We're looking for a light meal or dessert so somewhere that has good appetizer/small plate selections and/or great desserts. Outdoor seating and a good beer selection would be a plus. We'll be very casually dressed coming from the park. Thanks!

  1. The Bar. It's a little south of the super congested part of Main Street. 224 S Main. Outdoor seating avail, good scratch made breakfast lunch and dinner(?). Tried it for the first time 2 weeks ago, VERY surprised. This would be my pick.

    Milford House is pretty popular, but I think the location/patio has a lot to do with their success. Food is nothing special. You will probably wait an hour or so for a table if the weather is nice.

    There is a new crepe shop on Main St that would prob be good for dessert. Very casual. Not sure of their hours. Lots of tables.

      Thanks, that looks like exactly what I'm looking for!

        I've been in The Bar, but have as of yet been able to patronize it. I stopped by too late one night in hopes that the kitchen was still going to be open (I'd heard very good things about it), and unfortunately, I was too late. Front door was open (by mistake, I believe), and I walked in and the place was dead empty, and I had to look for the somewhat startled bartendress.

        After she realized that I wasn't there to rob, rape, or pillage, she was only too happy to tell me about the food there, the hours they keep, etc. I took a look at the menu, and I've got to say it: the items on the menu don't sound like anything impressive at all, but I was assured that they do care quite a bit about their food, and they offer nightly specials which sounded impressive.

        If nothing else, I was impressed by the service that was offered on an impromptu basis, and I look forward to getting back there when the kitchen's open.
