Ate here once after seeing the juicy lucy burger pic. I ordered it and the burger meat didnt fill the bun it was the size of a kiddy burger. There was very little cheese in the center. All items are al a carte so you can pay $10 for a burger but it doesnt include fries. I got a side... More

I was “home” in Detroit (where I grew up but haven’t lived in years) and wanted to visit Two James Distillery on the next block from Mercurey. So we combined the two for one fun filled evening! I had wanted to give Mercury a try, having heard a lot of good things about it. I introduced it to some locals,... More

I went with some friends to Mercury Burger Bar for a late dinner and it was great. The place isn't very large and despite it being 10:30pm on a Wednesday night, most of the tables were full. Service was good, burgers was delicious and the milkshakes were great. I will definitely be returning.

Enjoyed a great dinner and wonderful service by Katie. Great use of space and we were seated right away. Burgers run a bit on the rare side so select doneness accordingly. Could chat and continue onto the next event. Check it out and enjoy!

Stayed across the street for a couple night at an apartment rental on Michigan Avenue. We enjoyed going to Mercury each night for excellently priced and mixed martinis on their side patio. Inside/out, this fun place was filled with off-beat characters, clients and staff alike. After a morning downtown Detroit architecture tour, we decided to head back to Corktown, and... More
