I don't have a ton to say about this. Staff was friendly, but the food was not good. Pizza was soggy and nothing special, apps were less than mediocre (spinach dip and chips). Not good.

Across the street from Detroit Opera house. Good place for a dinner before or after a show. Casual. Or a good place for a drink before the show. We went for a drink after the show to avoid out going traffic.

This was a great place for dinner before we went to a play at the Detroit Opera House. Although it looked very busy from the outside we were seated right away. They have ample seating upstairs too. We order the Philly Steak Sandwich and The Santa Fe Chicken Salad. Both were delicious. We also each had a beet made onsite... More

This was my second visit for dinner and so far this place is consistently good! The rotating beer selection always offers a little something for everyone and the food is great! I love the bistro chips, but the waffled potatoes are also very good. Best Cuban sandwich I have had in the D so far. Best seats are upstairs but... More

We visited here on a friday night after dinner. The waitress (Lexie) was fantastic! She knew her beer and the service was friendly and quick. The menu looked interesting so we returned the next night for dinner. We didn't have Lexie this time. It was a disaster. The appetizers came with no eating utensils, plates or napkins. That problem was... More

I have had good service here and bad. Therefore, I Always sit at the bar. The bartenders are great, food is great, detroit dwarf beer is fantastic, but they occasionally hire terrible waitstaff. I highly recommend the Jumbalaya. My wife enjoys everytime we go there.

The service was incredibly slow. The waitresses, greeter, and bartender were not friendly. Our waitress walked slower than a turtle (seemed like it). When we had questions, she was very impatient. When we asked her when the food would be ready, since we had already waited 35 minutes, she said rudely, do you realize how busy we are. When I... More

Beer was outstanding, food was delicious, and the service we received from the manager was outstanding! He took his time to explain to us what each beer was, also which options were popular food wise. We took his recomendation and were not dissapointed. It was a great lunch!! Awesome!!

Stopped in the Detroit Beer Company back in March on a Saturday afternoon. Our server was extremely friendly and pleasant. The beer was good, and the food was decent. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend if visiting the city of Detroit.

We stopped by for a late dinner after a ball game and were disappointed to learn that after 10pm, they only served pizza and apps. It wasn't a huge deal, especially since the beer was good and food that we ended up ordering was pretty good too, but we had called earlier in the day and we were told that... More
