Always enjoy sitting on the patio for the fresh atmosphere in warmer weather. A pitcher of Bell's Two Hearted ale serves 3-4 people while waiting for the Maple Chicken sandwich, a Salmon Caesar salad or a delicious burger. Upgrade the bag of chips to onion rings for a treat. Sit at the bar if the wait for tables is too... More

This small local watering hole, has a decidedly "Cheers" feel. Favored by nearby denizens, it has an intimate buddy vibe. Titularly a sports pub, it draws gatherings of friends and family. The menu has improved and on occasion can offer noteworthy specials; otherwise it's pub grub. In season it offers patio seating, usually the first to fill.

They have one of the best burgers around this area! Make sure you order onion rings with it, they are deliciously perfect!

Made a trip to Poole's after a round of golf. Staff friendly and the half pound burger with a side of onion rings was terrific.

Sorry I can't say much about anything other than the burgers since I don't order from the ample # of choices on the menu. I go for the burgers and have never been disappointed. Service is good but it gets busy. It's a popular spot so if you're in a hurry for dinner, that's problematic. Downtown Northville is a very... More

Went to Pooles as it was too hot to cook. They have an outdoor seating area as well as inside across from the bar. It has TV's and full bar, but we came for the nachos, hummus and vege appetizer -'d burgers and fries/onion rings. They are very delicious! I recommend Pooles when looking for a quick bite to eat....

The perch special tasted like cardboard. Packaged Frozen Fishsticks had more flavor and the coleslaw was watery and bland. This is the second strike for this restaurant and there won't be a third.

My husband and I were there in the afternoon. We walked through inside so the waitresses would know that we were going to sit at the patio. Well...they saw and welcomed us alright but then 10 minutes later, nobody came to take our orders so we decided they didn't need our business. On the way out, instead of walking out... More

Poole’s Tavern is a fun bar in downtown Northville, Michigan. They have both inside seating and during the summer months they offer GREAT outdoor PATIO seating! Their menu is quite varied from a very nice salmon sandwich with a Real piece of Salmon NOT a frozen salmon burger, also served with wasabi mayonnaise, tomato, lettuce on Ciabatta bread . One...
