Kid Friendly Restaurants Family Friendly Pubs and Bars in Southeast Michigan « Previous Next » Amy Kuras • July 30, 2012 Add Comment Tweet Who says bars are verboten for your little ones? Nowadays, many fine watering holes are perfectly civilized enough to for the kiddos. Here are a few of our favorites throughout Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties. Arbor Brewing Company Address: 114 E. Washington St., Ann Arbor Phone: 734-213-1393 Try the pierogi for an appetizer, or the delicious drunken chicken marinated in the brewery's own IPA (which would be a great choice of beverage, too). You can't beat the downtown location for its closeness to family-friendly attractions like the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum or the UMS Family Concert Series at Rackham Auditorium. Bucharest Grill Address: 2040 Park Ave., Detroit Phone: 313-965-3111 Tucked inside the Park Bar, this hipster hangout has the best shawarma in the D – plus super sausages for those non-ethnic eaters. Detroit Beer Company Address: 1529 Broadway St., Detroit Phone: 313-962-1529 In the shadow of Comerica Park and Ford Field, mom and dad can kick back with a cold adult beverage while the kids color or watch sports on the big TVs. Good, hearty pub food. The Emory Address: 22700 Woodward Ave., Ferndale Phone: 248-546-8202 Owned by the same folks as the next-door Woodward Avenue Brewers or WAB, also a great spot, with a menu leaning more toward burgers and hearty sandwiches. Swing by for $5 burger Tuesdays and one of the best jukeboxes around for post-hip parents. Sherwood Brewing Company Address: 45689 Hayes Road, Shelby Township Phone: 586-532-9669 Don't let this strip mall bar fool you. It serves handcrafted beer, wine and sodas – all made on-site. Plus, you can fill up on a nice array of burgers, sandwiches and pizza, too. Woodbridge Pub Address: 5169 Trumbull St., Detroit Phone: 313-833-2701 Fresh, local, innovative food in one of Detroit's most charming revitalized neighborhoods – and families from the neighborhood often can be found socializing here. Check out the community garden across the street that supplies a lot of the restaurant's produce.
