Near Comerica Park

Stopped in for a snack and a beer before the ballgame. Another old downtown building re-purposed for good use. Food was good, beer was very good and the staff was very friendly and engaging. Unlike Comerica Park, beer was reasonably priced at about $5 a pint...standard for most micro-breweries.

This is our usual pick for after the tigers play. Great patio for people watching. Food is good although we just have appetizer and beer. Sample (flight beer) beers are a good way to try all. The location is prime.

We had a party of 5 & we were seated immediately! Our waitress brought water & took our drink orders right away. We got several appetizers to share & they were all delicious! Our table had the Cuban Sandwich (2), the Country Grilled Cheese, the steak entree & a special of Shepards Pie. Everyone loved their meals. Shanay (spelling?) was... More

We waited quite awhile for service. The beer list was very small for a brewery. Not a lot of choices. The food was extremely disappointing. Rubbery and tasteless. Our server was sweet, once she came by and the atmosphere is comfortable. We should have eaten at Small Plates next door or Greek Town.

Hello Sammie O, We sincerely apologize that you did not have a positive experience at our establishment. Service is one of our highest priorities so it is very disappointing to hear that you had to wait so long for a server to arrive at your table. We are happy to hear that once she did arrive, she was “sweet” but... More

This was about the only place open Saturday afternoon in our area so we stopped in. There were only 5 or 6 other folks at the bar so we took a table by the window. There were about 5 employees wandering around looking bored although one managed to make her way to our table. When we ordered drinks, she completely... More

This always been a go-to spot for my husband and I before a Tigers games, mostly because of their convenient location right across from the Opera House's parking garage. They offer a decent selection of beers, my husband prefers a stout to drink and they didn't offer one, but their Local 1529 beer doesn't disappoint. Our recent dining experience really... More

Hello flirtini, We are happy to hear that your past experiences at our establishment have been positive ones! However, we are saddened to hear that your recent visit with us has tarnished this positive outlook on our restaurant. Due to the impending Taylor Swift concert, we had created certain seating arrangements in anticipation of larger crowds. We understand this instance... More

The Detroit walking tours start and end here, an excellent place to relax! We had terrific service from Shawnee, and enjoyed a Detroit Porter!

DBC was the perfect spot to stop for a cold beer and let the traffic clear after attending a graduation at the Opera House. We tried the Porter, the Riopelle & the Light - all good options. I don't think the staff was prepared for the extra business from the graduates & families but they did a great job. When... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner and a few drinks at the Detroit Beer Company before seeing a show. Their location is an easy walk from the Fox theater, Comerica Park, and Ford Field. We had the fish and chips and the Brigand steak. Everything was really good. If you like craft beer, try the Saison. It was one of... More

We were going to a concert at the Fillmore so we decided to check out the Detroit Beer Company which is within a 5 minute walk. We were not disappointed. Despite some issues with service, we were happy with the food and drinks! The waffle fries and fish tacos are a must! This restaurant will be on our short list... More
