OC Restaurant Quest: Wagon Wheel Lounge in Northville
(Crystal A. Proxmire, Dec. 19, 2022)
Northville, MI – Wagon Wheel Lounge in Northville is a place that feels like it’s been there forever. And according to The Northville Historical Society, it hasn’t been forever, but certainly a long time.
“Originally the home and grocery store of Anthony H. Kohlers, this building was constructed in 1887. As it was located directly across the road from the railroad depot, its transition to an inn came about naturally. Now the building is a popular bar with lunch specials, pool tables, karaoke night & a jukebox.”
A friend and I went there for lunch. He had the grilled chicken salad, which came with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, cheddar, croutons, and chicken. I had the grilled chicken ranch wrap, made with bacon, cheddar, and lettuce.
We also shared an order of “ugly fries.” This Wagon Wheel invention is a plate full of waffle fries smothered in chili, cheese, and onions. The menu included other typical bar options like burgers, pizza, and sandwiches. Appetizers include potato skins, onion rings, and Bosco sticks.
Everything was quick and good, and the dark room with the pool tables and antique decor created an atmosphere that felt like a night at the watering hole, even though it was only noon.
Wagon Wheel Lounge does not have a website, but stop in at 212 S Main St in Northville.
