Oakwood Grill & Bar sates stomachs with classic American bar fare, wets whistles with a wide array of beer, wine, and cocktails, and keeps boredom at bay with a full slate of boisterous special events. The menu's hearty offerings include a herd of 24 buffalo wings ($17.95) and the spicy Hot in Here burger ($6.95) topped with grilled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, and three strips of Dearborn bacon.

Hungry herbivores, meanwhile, can snack on lightly battered fried pickles and cream-cheese jalapeños ($4.95) while sipping beers and cocktails mixed behind Oakwood's long cement bar with a motor-powered cement mixer.

Hurricanes Pub and Grill welcomes patrons into a classic neighbourhood meeting den where with live sports broadcasts and trivia games accompany sandwiches, burgers, and social gatherings. An extensive menu proffers baskets of the pub's celebrated chicken wings ($10.60 for eight), bathed, like Victorian dandies, in a choice of spicy or sweetened sauces. Six-ounce lean beef Hurriburgers in breeds such as the barbecue and onion-topped hickory smokey ($7.75) and the peameal bacon–backed Great Canadian ($7.10) graze tables until patrons ensnare them in a bun and match them with a side of fries ($1.79). Hands take a breather as forks get to flaking pan-fried tilapia ($10.75) crusted in tortilla bits and accompanied by rice and steamed vegetables. Hurricanes Pub and Grill entertains its diners with free WiFi and Buzztime trivia as well as nine TVs bathing tables in the light of sports fireworks. Guests dine at rustic wood tables on two split levels, ensconced in exposed brick walls lined with vintage signs, sports banners, and needlepoint Monets.
Since it first threw open its Tudor-style doors in 1878, Windsor's oldest tavern has kept whistles wet and toes tapping with beers, live music, and a full menu of sandwiches and pub-style entrees such as fish 'n' chips and shepherd's pie. A dozen different brews flood from the tap, slaking the thirsts of guests plugging away at open mic and trivia nights. Beyond the main dining room’s checkered floors, long communal-style tables, and crimson walls, private rooms host parties of up to 100 merrymakers or several million thimbles.
Bookies Bar & Grille plies foodies and sports zealots alike with a hearty menu of American pub eats and drinks, which pairs of diners can consume while bathed in the glow of a dozen plasma-screen televisions. Find a seat on one of three spacious floors to watch tortilla chips high-dive from the rooftop patio into your beef-queso dip ($8.99), as you laugh and converse with a dinner companion or incorporeal omniscient narrator. Brawny beef and turkey burgers strut proudly from the grill, flexing toppings such as grilled pineapple and ham ($9.99), as a triumvirate of Blue Dorsal sliders ($8.99) drift over counters with their lightly fried cod cores overheating. Diners who opt for dual entrees can bite into deliciously glazed sweet chili chicken ($11.99), the honey chipotle salmon ($12.99), or other tasty selections. Sip from cool glasses of Newcastle, Blue Moon, or other brews on tap ($3–$7), or prevent sweet teeth from biting the hand that feeds them with flambéed mountains of bananas foster ($6.99) daubed with ice cream and Grand Marnier–laced whipped cream.
At 222 feet long and 88 feet high, the Players Riverboat Casino II wouldn't fit on parts of the upper Mississippi River. So when it had to leave its Louisiana home for a new job in Detroit, it took the long way there, passing around Florida, Maine, and Nova Scotia until it chugged through the Gulf of St. Lawrence. All this was just the beginning of the boat's journey—the next step was a thorough transformation from a scrapped gambling vessel into an opulent cruise ship. The staff gussied up its interior, installed several kitchens, and gave it a new royal title: the Detroit Princess Riverboat.
Today, the Detroit Princess is a coveted venue for high-energy celebrations and relaxing cruises alike. Its five tiers of outdoor decks afford dual skyline views of Detroit and Windsor and up-close glimpses of the Ambassador Bridge, the crucial link that keeps Canada from floating away. Inside each of the boat's four stories, passengers can visit a full bar and socialize inside heated and air-conditioned rooms. The biggest of these boast dining areas anchored by prime-rib buffets and sprawling dance floors where DJs or live Motown groups prompt guests to boogie down. Holiday parties, late-night excursions, and private charters take the nightclub vibe to the water, and floating wedding ceremonies and receptions let even the merfolk branch of the family be a part of the fun.
The Town Pump Tavern's menu boasts pint pairings such as the Black and Blue Bites (wonton-wrapped infusion of roasted red peppers, blue cheese, and blackened chicken served with a side of ranch and toughness, $7) or a refreshingly crisp order of fried pickles ($4). Heartier options include the toasted-rye Reuben ($7) or brow-dripping half-pound Firehouse Burger complete with Cajun seasoning and fresh jalapeños ($7.75). Come rain, meteor shower, or impromptu spelling bee, happy hour runs seven days a week with the exception of December 25. From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., guests can meet up with friends, enjoy dollar food items, and hitch a ride on the free Red Wings shuttle to home games.
