Great lunch today

Husband and I went to midtown to do the DIA and the Detroit Historical Museum and we stopped here for lunch. We sat outside and had a tasty pizza. We each had a beer - fun times!

A great place to hang our with friends. We sat at the bar and the bartender was pretty cool. Only drank but the pizza looked delicious especially since several people around us ordered them. I had the honey porter and it was smooth. You can also go upstairs and hang out on the deck.

We had a fairly large group and had no problem getting seated. The service was prompt and the staff is very friendly! We ordered several pizzas to share: the Margherita, the Godfather, Mary Did Have and Maui Wowie. Mary Did Have was a recommendation by the waiter - it was truly everyone's favorite! Really worth trying. If you like roasted... More

Motor city is a great place to meet up with friends and family to enjoy great pizza and locally brewed beer. What more could you want?!

This is the place i visit every time I come home. The pizzas have always been amazing, the local micro beers are some of the only beer I like, and the staff is great. Favorite pizzas include the Mary Did Have, the Sopla Fuego, and the Bronx Bomber. Be careful on parking though, as the Brew Works only owns a... More

This is such a cool little bar/restaurant. The many beers they brew and have on tap are awesome and ever-changing. Something new to try every time, but the favorites like Ghettoblaster, remain constant. The Summer Brew will cool you down on hot days and the Hot Hard Cider (with cinnamon rimmed mug) will cozy you up in the winter. The... More

I went here with three other people that loved it, but they had only one thing that I could enjoy on the menu as medically diagnosed gluten intolerant. And I am someone who will work with it, ie order a burger and get rid of the buns myself. But of the most part it was just pizza and beer. So... More

We visited Motor City Brewing before a concert at the Fox Theater. The location was convenient and in a really nice, up and coming neighborhood near Shinola. We started with the spinach dip and some of their microbrews. The beer was good and the dip, which came with some fresh bread, was some of the best I've ever had. We... More
