Adrian Bars and Restaurants

Sauce Italian Grill

Adrian is a quaint small town with a special gem located right in the downtown area. It is hard to be disappointed with Italian dishes and pub favorites served in a casual atmosphere. The customers can be described as lively but not so much so that you can't enjoy a nice dinner. They specialize in stone-oven pizzas made in-house. If you are not in a pizza mood, your favorite pasta dishes are at the ready. Although you probably won't have room, their desserts are smooth and go down so easy. You can find this establishment at 149 N. Main Street which is conveniently located for a great walk through downtown Adrian after your dining experience.

Hooligan's Grill

This Irish-German bar and grill is located in the heart of Adrian. Very recently opened, the owner and her staff have a real commitment to helping the local economy.

The whole point of your experience at 1675 E. US 223 is to make you feel comfortable. This is not one of those stuffy, stuck-up type of dining establishments.

The manger is always walking around making sure every part of your experience meets with your approval. There is a rumor going around that they have the margaritas for miles around, but you can be the judge. Check it out soon and put it to the test.


If you could define sports bar with one word, that one word would be Frickers. There are lots of televisions everywhere to enjoy any entertainment you have a mind to. The crowd is usually very lively and engaged with the staff and their fellow patrons. Their signature dish is the wings with their wide selection of sauces. But if wings aren't your thing, there are plenty of other options. The staff is always friendly and attentive to your needs, you will not be able to get your drink down to less than half full before you have a staff person filling it up again. If you need some excitement in your life, run to you car and get to 720 S. Main Street now.


If you are looking for a second home where you can do some good drinking, 111 S. Main Street will serve you well. This is the place for the person who is a serious drinker. Not that there is nothing else to do. There is a pretty good size menu and the wait staff is friendly, but the drinks are off the chain. The normal prices are average, but if you look for their specials, you can really save a lot of money. Mandy's has a cult following in the Adrian area and is the epitome of a neighborhood bar.

JR's Hometown Grill & Pub

This establishment is awesome in every way and it has credentials to prove it. They were voted the “Best of Lenawee” 3 years running by the Daily Telegram for the best ribs, burgers and for superior service. Their tag line says that they provide big city meals at hometown prices and after only one experience, this cannot be denied, it is a perfect description. This is a great place to celebrate special occasions. The motif is unique because it screams rustic cowboy. So, if you are looking for an unbelievable meal at really reasonable prices and a full bar to boot, you don't have to drive any further than 1368 Division Street.
