Looking for a place to eat in Clawson?

When my family and I are down in the Clawson area we usually end up eating dinner at Nick's Country Oven.  They are located at the corner of 14 Mile and Nahma, between Crooks and Main.  They are currently open from 7am-10pm Monday thru Saturday and til 9pm on Sunday.  If you don't have time to eat there you can always get it to go.

The have a great menu with a selection ranging from appetizers and burgers to ribs and seafood.  They have a nice selection of daily specials that also includes soup, salad, and dessert for one low price.  One word of caution though, the meals are not small and you may be walking out of there with left overs.  Some of my favorite dishes include the chicken pot pie, stuffed peppers, and bacon cheeseburger.

The only complaint that I have is the waitstaff is hit or miss.  I have been there sometimes and get excellent top-notch service and other times where well it was not the greatest.  If you go around dinner time, there maybe a short wait as they are usually busy, but the food makes it worth the wait as long as the service is good.

Last year this became a famous location in Clawson, as George Clooney filmed scene from one of his latest movies there, "The Ides of March."  Mr. Clooney was on scene for at least a day during filming and the area around the restaurant drew quite the crowd.

All in all, for the most part we have an enjoyable experience and keep coming back.  I hope you have time to get a chance and check them out.  If you like them, or know someone who may, please feel free to share this blog with them.
