Midwest Living Review
After a drive in the country and perhaps a visit to a nearby cider mill, North Point Seafood and Steakhouse is a welcome destination. The three-year-old restaurant is handsomely outfitted in walnut tones, local artwork and pale walls. Picture windows overlook the small town of Dexter, a rural community 15 miles west of Ann Arbor. Booths offer intimacy, while larger tables offer a greater vista of the decor. North Point is open for lunch and dinner, plus brunch on Sundays, and the offerings are diverse, almost to the point of feeling overwhelming. Beef lovers can select from a hamburger or a filet; fish and fowl fans might choose a chicken sandwich, a fried chicken salad, sashimi or ahi tuna. Filling, but not fabulous, might be the best way to describe the food. A Five Onion soup comes topped with perfectly melted cheese, but the seafood omelet has just a couple token pieces of lobster and crab and comes with a mound of utterly forgettable potatoes. The chicken sandwich is enormous but you've probably had one like it before. Expect to pay around $11 for lunch, closer to $20 for dinner entrees. An adjacent, dark-paneled raw bar with flat-screen TVs has a lively happy hour, featuring discounted cocktails and appetizers.
