Cloverleaf's pride and joy is its deep-dish square pizza.

Or opt for the veggie, which is incidentally coated in mushrooms, red onion, green pepper, and black olives ($14.99 for a large).

At Brownie's on the Lake, chefs grace tables with burgers, hand-cut steaks, and fresh seafood from a classic American menu. As with most dinner entrees, Brownie's lobster mac 'n' cheese centers on a protein as it tucks butter-poached lobster into leagues of molten cheddar and reefs of elbow macaroni. The char-grilled New York strip steak pops with signature zip sauce, and the pan-fried Great Lakes perch wears a flaky coat of cornmeal. In addition to a mixed-greens salad or serving of house-made coleslaw, each diner can add a side such as sweet-potato wedges or herbed rice pilaf.
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.
