Friendly "Cheers" type of pub, they are hands-down the best of the best in Northville. The food is consistently good, the burgers are the best around town, the staff and owners are attentive, helpful and fun to be around.

We met some friends here for dinner. The service was great. The food was very good, fresh and made to order. They had a nice selection of craft beers. It is a nice, casual place. We waited about a half hour for a table. Outside dining is available in the summer.

Good all round time with good food. Nice place to meet up or just go for a quick meal. Open atmosphere so it may be a little noisy but not really bothering. Prices

Always enjoy sitting on the patio for the fresh atmosphere in warmer weather. A pitcher of Bell's Two Hearted ale serves 3-4 people while waiting for the Maple Chicken sandwich, a Salmon Caesar salad or a delicious burger. Upgrade the bag of chips to onion rings for a treat. Sit at the bar if the wait for tables is too... More

This small local watering hole, has a decidedly "Cheers" feel. Favored by nearby denizens, it has an intimate buddy vibe. Titularly a sports pub, it draws gatherings of friends and family. The menu has improved and on occasion can offer noteworthy specials; otherwise it's pub grub. In season it offers patio seating, usually the first to fill.

They have one of the best burgers around this area! Make sure you order onion rings with it, they are deliciously perfect!

Made a trip to Poole's after a round of golf. Staff friendly and the half pound burger with a side of onion rings was terrific.

Sorry I can't say much about anything other than the burgers since I don't order from the ample # of choices on the menu. I go for the burgers and have never been disappointed. Service is good but it gets busy. It's a popular spot so if you're in a hurry for dinner, that's problematic. Downtown Northville is a very... More

Went to Pooles as it was too hot to cook. They have an outdoor seating area as well as inside across from the bar. It has TV's and full bar, but we came for the nachos, hummus and vege appetizer -'d burgers and fries/onion rings. They are very delicious! I recommend Pooles when looking for a quick bite to eat....
