Bars in Sterling Heights:

La Saj Lebanese

Address:
13776 Southcove Dr.
Sterling Heights, MI 48313
Phone:
(586) 566-6600
Although Metro Detroit is full of Lebanese and Middle-Eastern restaurants, La Saj is one of the finest. With its five-star waitstaff and free valet service, La Saj will have you feeling the Arabian royalty. Almost as soon as you're seated, the waiter brings you a plate of pita and their absolutely delicious garlic dip. The shawrmas are what make this restaurant for me. The beef and the chicken are equally good, but if you like thin-sliced meat, go for the beef. They also have a full bar, making this restaurant a great place for a weekend date.

The Pantry

Address:
‪34220 Van Dyke
Sterling Heights, MI 48312
Phone:
(586) 939-1390
The Pantry is one of Sterling Heights' best American-style diner. Thanks to their Friday special of blueberry pancakes and sausage links for under $6, this place was our family's Friday tradition a while back. However, they have daily specials and a complete kids menu, making this a perfect place for the whole family. If you're looking for a great family environment and some excellent home style food, be sure to visit The Pantry next time you find yourself in Sterling Heights.

Sterling's Bistro

Address:
13905 Lakeside Cir
Sterling Heights, MI 48313
Phone:
(586) 566-0627
The winner of numerous Metro Detroit dining award, Sterling's Bistro offers a unique twist on traditional Americana dining. We go there on Sundays for their "Seafood Trio". For salmon lovers, go for the Ultimate Trio of grilled salmon, scallops and shrimp. For more variety, try out my favorite, the Fisherman's Feast, a platter of whitefish, crab cake and blackened shrimp. It's also a great bar with a wonderful ambiance and decor and a wine list with nearly 50 options. Fittingly, this place has awesome bar food. You have to try their flatbread pizzas — especially the BBQ Chicken!

Chicpea Kitchen

Address:
39525 Mound Rd.
Sterling Heights, MI 48310
Phone:
(586) 795-5555
The Chicpea is a humble restaurant that is locally labeled as "the Subway of Middle-Eastern food". The main attraction here is definitely their customized pitas and shwarmas, with your choice of 10 or so toppings and a handful of meats and sauces. However, they have fixed dishes like the Tabolui Salad and the eponymous Chickpea Salad. Although I can't recommend this place for a first date, it's one of Sterling Height's best locations for a quick, healthy and natural lunch.

Honey Tree Grille

Address:
‪44667 Mound Rd
Sterling Heights, MI 48314
Phone:
(586) 739-7284
Once you're seated by the exceptional waitstaff, maybe even one of the two owners, get ready to say Opa! Hands-down the best thing about this restaurant is its saganaki, which isn't a bad thing since their dinner menu is also killer. The gyros are all the rave here, and for good reason: The meat is always fresh and tender, and unlike other Greek restaurants, they do not skimp on the meat. The chicken gyros are some of the best I've had, but the lamb gyros are definitely my favorite. All this place takes is one meal, and I promise you'll quickly find yourself amongst their regulars.

House of Reuben

Address:
7850 Metropolitan Pkwy
Sterling Heights, MI 48312
Phone:
(586) 977-2700
Just their pastrami sandwich alone earns this restaurant five stars in my book. While some places are notorious for their dry pastrami, especially around Metro Deroit, House of Reuben cooks up a mean Corned Beef and Pastrami sandwich. Another thing that makes this restaurant one of my favorites is their pickles, which they place in a huge jar in the middle of the table as opposed to typical appetizers of bread or chips and salsa. They have a pretty complete dinner menu, but trust me, you'll want to fix your eyes not the sandwich section.
