Allen Park is a working-class suburban city in central Wayne County, Michigan. The city is known for its tree-lined streets, brick houses, and the Fairlane Green Shopping Center that opened in 2006. At the 2010 census, the population was 28,210. The suburb of Detroit was once recognized in Money Magazine's list of America's Best Small Cities. Allen Park is part of the collection of communities known as Downriver. Much like other "Downriver" communities, Allen Park has seen a steady decline in recent years, in terms of property value.

Is what keeps most loyal customers coming back. Honestly, we had to park behind the movie theater. There are no handicap spots. Waited an hour for the table. Can't make reservations. Service was ok. Sure, they are nicely dressed. Sure, the tableside dishes are entertaining. At the end of the day, it's crowded and the food is just ok. The veal and cod were lacking flavor. The cherries jubilee and the spumoni ice cream were just ok. For the price, you can have a much better meal. You just won't get the tradition of this small eatery that has been serving the community for over 30 years.

I went with a friend and we both give this a thumbs up! Overall, food was very good. My fav was the boiled potatoes, sauerkraut and sausage. We got the combination plate which left us with plenty to take home and eat later. The stuffed cabbage rolls were a little different then how my mom makes them, but had a great flavor and done just right!
Service was great! They let us sit and talk for quite awhile. It was very busy during lunch time but seemed to clear out with plenty of people coming and going. I would go again and try something different.

Friends from Ann Arbor suggested we make the trek to this restaurant, as we were looking for Mediterranean food. We are very glad we did. The service was friendly and fast and the food was pleasant. We started with a fattoush salad and my only suggestion would be to cut the lettuce in smaller chunks. The flavor was good.
We had soup and two entrees and were very pleased with them. The lamb chops were excellent, not overcooked.
The service is friendly and the food came quickly.
I looked at two family platters at tables next to us and they looked wonderful.

Buddy's Pizza is one of our favorite pizza places. Their 8 square BBQ Chicken and Gourmet Veggie pizzas are our favorite. The sliced zucchini chips are awesome. The Michigan Ave location is super busy during lunch time on weekdays and so the wait times can be horrendous sometimes. So plan accordingly. I like their Novi location better - Friendly waiters, clean, well lighted place. The pizza price is a little bit higher than the normal Pizza Hut or Jets Pizza but its totally worth it.

They have absolutely the best strudel in Michigan. They have been a staple in Allen Park for years. I've had friends visit and ask how to get to the Strudle House because they had heard about them, or had tried the strudle at my home and wanted to take some home. You won't be sorry to check them out. They are still in a very small building on Park St. You owe it to yourself to check them out.

Visited Giovannis at 7pm on a Saturday night, seated immediately for our reservation. The food here is exceptional. From the bread service, appetizers, meal and dessert everything was fantastic. Always a special night. Started with pizza, shrimp and sausage appetizers. Moved to soups and salads. Many wonderful meals including eggplant parm, lasagna, fettuccini Alfredo and simple pasta. Finished with tiramisu, cakes, and homemade tiny fried donuts. The homemade sauces and noodles were incredible. Food, service, cleanliness all top notch.

Had a breakfast here with a friend. It was fine. Had the cinnamon raisin French toast and we were both a bit disappointed that it was skinny bread rather than thick French-toast style bread. But coffee was good and plentiful and waitress was very efficient and pleasant. When I mentioned that I had waitressed in that building 40+ years before (!!!) she talked to the manager/owner and he allowed me to peak into the kitchen and see the renovations. Brought back many memories. Would like to go back and try some other menu items. Great people seem to work here.

Was referred to this place by my cousin. I had the Egg drop soup as an appetizer, was tasty and delicious. I Had the Thai Salad with house dressing (peanut sauce) was excellent.
Ordered the Pad Thai (mild) for main entree and it was spiced just right and was so good I wanted to lick the plate. Will definitely be back

Stopped in for a few drinks with family and dinner. Good food, reasonable prices and great service. Excellent choice of burgers and a huge selection of draft beers.
