Every morning at Tom?s Oyster Bar, chefs scrawl the day?s battered and grilled seafood specials on chalkboard menus suspended from the ceiling. In addition to that list of freshly caught fish, the chefs tout their commitment to fresh seafood by stocking their raw bar with oysters that are shucked to order and then gently scolded for hording pearls. In the wood-accented dining room, companions can sip from dozens of draft and bottled brews and bask in the glow of flat-screen TVs, or retreat to the outdoor patio and take in views of downtown Royal Oak.

With a stage sturdy enough to bear the weight of standup comedy giants such as Jon Stewart, Jerry Seinfeld, and Ellen DeGeneres, Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle continues to cultivate talent to fill up its schedule. In the same way that it has operated since 1979, the venue employs a three-tier format for its shows: two locals, one up-and-coming and one seasoned, followed by a nationally recognized comic. This approach exposes audiences to new voices while comforting them with the promise of a recognizable face at evening’s end.

Fifth Avenue delights rabid sports fans and neutral noshers alike with a late-night menu of classic pub fare, brews, and entertainment. Thirty-five flat-screen televisions stimulate optic and otic synapses with a lively stream of sport spectatorship, while hardworking cooks toss, toast, and top house specialty V.I.Pizzas ($10–$13) and assemble 3-D edibles into the wee hour of 2 a.m. Pique appetites under the tutelage of cheese-gilded nacho platters ($7), or pit dueling bread stix and cheese stix ($6 each) against each other in oral arenas. Competitive canines sink luxuriously into cheeseburgers ($7) or caesar salads ($5), while New York–style cheesecake ($5) and globes of vanilla-flecked ice cream ($2.50) tuck sweet teeth into sugar-kissed slumbers.
