Dick O’Dow’s adds new courtyard

The Irish-themed Dick O’Dow’s bar and restaurant has been a mainstay in Birmingham for over 25 years. In 2007, owner Mitch Black added a second restaurant/bar called The Dow in the under-utilized back area of establishment. “The Dow,” (appropriately named) was an instant success and is a place where the beer fluctuates in price every 15 minutes according to supply and demand. Now, owner Mitch Black is renovating again. The front of Dick O’Dow’s is being pushed back 15 feet to accommodate a covered outdoor patio complete with a cozy fireplace and four ceiling mounted heaters. The new courtyard will seat 30 patrons. The original outdoor deck seating on Maple Road will remain in place. In addition, the back patio of The Dow will be expanded to host 40 guests – up from the original 20. The menu at Dick O’Dow’s will remain the same. According to Black, the ahi tuna and beef tenderloin sliders are fan favorites. Black refers to his successful business as beer-centric. “We sell more Stella and Guinness beer than anywhere else in Michigan.” Sounds like the courtyard patio is a perfect spot to serve up even more! 160 W. Maple Road, Birmingham,
