Authentic firehouse doors flank the front entrance to The Engine House and, while no fire trucks ever come racing out, the firefighter motif continues inside with memorabilia such as two fiery cauldrons hanging above the bar. Wednesdays are Firefighter Days, when The Engine House feels even more like a proper fire station as local personnel stop by to socialize and hose down patrons who are speaking too heatedly. Together, firefighters and their fellow diners can also play tunes on the digital jukebox or catch a game on the bar’s large projection screen and copious plasma and flat-screen TVs.
While the restaurant’s three founding Detroit firefighters—John Gusumano, Greg Sisoy, and Jake Crowder—authenticate the decor, Executive Chef Dennis Capozzoli focuses on the bar’s extensive menu.

Intricate salads feature ingredients such as dried cherries and gorgonzola cheese, and gluten-free pizza and vegetarian options accommodate patrons with special diets.

The self-proclaimed home of the $1 draft, Dooleys Tavern keeps 20 beers cascading from their taps. Those suds complement the chefs' pub food, which includes American tavern classics such as half-pound burgers and up to 50 chicken wings doused in a choice of four sauces.

Seven nights a week, Dooleys’ three locations keep guests entertained until 2 a.m. on an outdoor patio, in a room full of classic bar games, and with plenty of HDTVs showing the game. The trio of taverns also accommodates up to 100 guests for private parties. Additionally, the Mount Clemens location pairs feasts with sidesplitting routines from standup comics in Carmen's Showroom.
The cooks at Dan Good Pizza understand that everybody has their own favorite style of pizza, so they load their menu with seemingly limitless options. They start with a base of five crust varieties: thin and crispy flatbread, hand tossed traditional, round or square pan pizzas, Chicago-style deep dish, or gluten-free. They then decorate the dough canvas with sauces and any combination of their 34 toppings. Tried-and-true creations come in the form of specialty pies, including the Mediterranean, which is topped with spinach, red onion, marinated tomatoes and feta cheese. To complement their pizzas, they offer cheddar and bacon bread sticks with a garlic and herb cream cheese spread and jumbo bone in butter-parmesan and jamaican-jerk wings, which come by the piece for convenient sampling.
