Dominick's, known as one the best Summer spots in Ann Arbor, boasts an awesome outdoor patio to enjoy all Summer long. All the locals know that when Dominick's opens up, it's officially Summer!

When you walk in the door, grab a picnic table outside on the patio and jump in line with friends (you'll need a few extra hands to carry food and drinks back). The menu is written all over the walls as you wait in line, and every drink is served in giant pitchers or jars. The staff is fun, young and friendly, and this place is a total, no frills, hang out type bar. And the food is pretty great as well. The best time to hang out at Dominick's is a sunny afternoon, as Dominick's is mostly a day/early evening place, closing at 10 pm.

The bottom line: The pricing here is pretty college/ budget friendly. Each throw in 10 or 20 bucks, you'll get drinks and a meal and leave feeling satisfied.

Dominick's is located at:

812 Monroe St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
