In this portion of our web guide, we will be focusing on places to eat or drink in Southgate, Michigan.

Commonly, these places are known as restaurants and bars, although they may also be known by a variety of other names. In some cases, the name is a reference to the type of business, but it can also simply be a reflection of whatever the owner wants to call it.

Retaurants might be known as eating houses, dining rooms, eateries, or luncheonettes, but they are more commonly known as cafes, diners, grills, or restaurants. Sometimes, they are known for their chief cuisine, as in bakeries, hamburger places, hotdog stands, ice cream parlors, pizzerias, and steakhouses. Restaurants might also be known by the type of dining services they provide, such as buffets, cafeterias, drive-in restaurants, and fast-food chains.

Other dining facilities are known by their ethnic cuisine, including Chinese restaurants, Italian restaurants, Mexican restaurants, Thai restaurants, and so on.

Restaurants in Southgate, as elsewhere, might be part of a national franchise, a restaurant chain, or operated independently.

Businesses that focus on serving drinks intended to be consumed on the premises might be known as bars, but the owners may opt to market their business under other names, such as bistros, clubs, pubs, saloons, or taverns. Nightclubs (clubs) generally include live entertainment.

Some businesses focus on serving drinks other than alcoholic beverages. These might include coffeehouses, coffee shops, or tearooms, although tearooms are not particularly popular in the United States.

Of course, most restaurants also serve coffee and tea, and many of them offer alcoholic beverages, as well. Coffee shops and bars are also likely to serve food, which is the chief reason we have elected to include places to eat and drink in the same category.

Retail businesses, such as grocery or liquor stores, would be listed in a Places to Shop category, however.
