Was already familiar with Motor City Brews before we came to Detroit, glad we check them out. Great pizza and even better beer!

If you enjoy good people, great beer and good food then put this place on your list of places to visit. Clearly their key to success is application of the K.I.S.S Principal. These guys have figured out that keeping it simple and smart is the recipe to success. Their menu is small but good. They offer great fresh salads, fantastic... More

We got here pretty late and it was still a happening bar! We ended up seated at the "pizza bar" - the last seating available in a pretty small dining room. The pizza bar just overlooked the pizza ovens and the two cooks making the pizza. We had a great time watching them bicker over the proper definition of labne... More

Place is very cosy and makes it feel like a gathering place. Nice selection of beers brewed in the building while you drink your beer. The pizzas were fresh and delicious.

Really loved this place. Such a cool feel on the inside and really well decorated/designed. The food and brews more than lived up to the great setting too. The food menu isn't huge but more impotent everything we had from that menu was awesome. Great pizza, salad, soup and beer. The staff was really nice as well even to our... More

we visited as a group of friends (7) and had driven a few hours to get there, arriving before a show at the magic stick--which is within walking distance. we were greeted by an annoyed/angry host who pretty much said "no" to every suggestion we made to try to accommodate us. you could tell on arrival that he didn't want...

I always enjoy visiting this restaurant while I am in Midtown. While selections are limited they are good and the service is friendly. Pizzas are different that what you find elsewhere. I highly recommend the Bronx bomber. Great place to stop before or after a ball game. Just beware that parking in front of the establishment is limited, but there... More

I've enjoyed Ghettoblaster that I buy in the store and I wanted to go and have a beer and a bite to eat in person and I'm glad we did. We sat on the deck on the roof and our table was next to a potted flower. The service was good and our pear and fig pizza was excellent. The... More

We had pizza and beer at the brewery. The brick oven pizza was awesome and they had some very unique combinations. Fun and unique place with a interesting décor. My Husband liked the ghetto blaster beer. We would definitely go back!

We stopped by Motor City Brewing Works on our way to a show at the Masonic Temple Theatre. Having already read the reviews on TA, we knew not to park in the lot right in front. Street parking wasn't hard to find, even around dinner time. There were a few events going on downtown that night, so there was a... More
