Roy's BBQ & Burgers - If you're craving that authentic American diner style meal, Roy's BBQ and Burgers has got it. The prices are moderate and you'll love the country atmosphere and family friendly environment. They specialize in barbecue, ribs, sandwiches, and hamburgers. You'll get hooked on the sauce here. We would highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich! You'll find Roy's on Wabash Street just south of Main Street.
Lighthouse Coffee Co - While perhaps not classified as a restaurant, Lighthouse Coffee Co is definitlely a big draw for the locals because of their great live music on Wednesdays. Delicious sandwiches, wonderful chai tea, and even ice cream. Everything you want is here. Located on Main Street just west of Wabash.
Campfire Family Steak House - This restaurant has been in business for at least two decades, and it's a local favorite for good reason. They've got delicious steaks, hence the name, but don't overlook the pizzas which are equally delicious. There's something for everyone on the menu, and there's even a pool table to keep your party entertained while waiting for food or drinks, or just to hang out and have fun after your meal. Located on Dexter Street north of Milan Oakville Road.
China One - China One is one of the best takeout joints in the area, so if you want to just grab some quick Chinese and enjoy it on the party bus, this is the place to go. The rice is highly rated here (Chinese food aficionados know that there's a difference!), and we really love the combination plates because you get so much for your money. We're also a fan of their soups. Located on Main Street, just southeast of Wabash.
Milan Grill - Milan Grill gives you Ann Arbor quality at Milan prices. There's plenty of room here for large parties, including a party room, television, and wifi. There's a full bar with wine, beer, and microbrews, and you'll love the drink specials at happy hour. Gorgeous decor makes for an incredible atmosphere. Really delicious food.

Fenders Bar & Grill - One of the best neighborhood bars in Milan, Fenders has a pool table and some video games, and a big screen TV complemented by some retro TV sets. They've got all the bar food that we love from burgers to sandwiches, and even a delicious potato soup. Don't miss the daily specials. Located on Wabash just off Main Street.
Original Gravity Brewing Co - If you love microbrews, you'll love Original Gravity Brewing Co. The locals call this one OG for short. They've usually got four regular beers and two seasonals on tap. The beer is definitely the focus here, as the dining menu is limited, but everything is delicious. Located on County Street just off Route 23.
Club 23 Bar and Grill - Club 23 Bar and Grill is a great tavern in Milan. The drinks are affordable and made to perfection, but the star here is actually the pizza and American food. When you're not busy throwing back beers, make sure to grab some pizza and find out why it's so loved by the locals. The atmosphere here is comfortable and casual. Located on East Willis Road, at the intersection with Carpenter Road.
The Dugout Sports Bar - This one is possibly known more for its great steaks and sandwiches, but the bar is definitely a winner if you ask us. It's got that great sports bar atmosphere that you can't get enough of, with all your favorite games always showing on the TV, and everything is super affordable and delicious. You'll find Dugout on Dexter Street, just off Route 23.
Old Shack - When you're looking for just a comfortable neighborhood bar, you can't beat Old Shack. Great drinks, delicious bar food, and cheap prices all around. The waitstaff is friendly and the neighborhood atmosphere can't be beat. You'll find this one on Wabash Street south of Main Street.
