Uptown Grille



Published:

There’s an intangible about any successful enterprise. What is it that has made this big sports bar/restaurant so successful in the year and a half since it opened? Foodies would probably say it’s the quality of the dishes on an extensive menu that includes everything from chips and salsa to rib-eye steaks, which are handled with equal respect. Others might point to the friendly staff or the unpretentious but attractive look of the 14,000-square-foot building. Then there’s that wall of high-definition plasma TVs over the bar where 37 craft beers are on tap. The strategic location on Maple Road makes it geographically desirable to the Novi, West Bloomfield, Walled Lake, and Commerce Township crowds.  In any case, proprietors Ryan Adams, Joe Hibbert, and Brandon Richardson have a hit on their hands. 3100 E. West Maple Rd., Commerce Township; 248-960-3344.
