Let's go Tigers!

We went for a bite before the Tigers game and I will say I LOVE the atmosphere that the downtown area is offering! We were seated fairly quick, had a couple of beers which were yummy and burgers. My only suggestion would be to offer a 1/4 lb burger! Even at my most hungry time there is no way... read more

The decor of this restaurant is pretty cool although it was a bit dark for me (I'm legally blind). We went on a game day and arrived before the restaurant got too busy, and were seated right away. Their menu has a nice selection of unique foods, and we wanted to try everything on the menu. Our waiter, Jordan, was... More

We stopped in to Detroit Beer Company after a concert at Ford Field to have some drinks and get a bite to eat while traffic died down. Should've just fought traffic. We sat on the patio and after 10 minutes I decided to go order drinks from the bar myself. In all fairness the IPA I had was good and... More

This place has a very convenient location being so close to Ford Field and Comerica. That is it's best thing it has going for it. The food was good. Not great. Not bad. Good. I liked my sandwich and my wife liked hers. They brew their own beer and what I had was good. If you are near by, go... More

Beer was cold and so was the personality of our waitress. I expect wait staff to be friendly and attentive but she was not. There were six of us and all felt the same way. This was brought to her attention and reflected in her tip.

This restaurant / brewery is located directly across the street from the Detroit Opera House and is close to a stop on the People Mover. This is a great place to dine before a Tigers game or Opera event. Comerica park is just a couple of blocks away and there are times where you can park in the Detroit Opera... More

Beer was good. I really enjoyed the Local 1529 IPA. Bartender seemed frustrated at first, but quickly changed his attitude. He eventually opened up and talked to us quite a bit. Detroit Beer Company is a "must" for any one that enjoys craft beer while visiting downtown Detroit.

Went here with my mom before a concert at the fox theatre. They have many delicious local beers on tap and other drink options. We had to wait at the bar for a table on the patio, although they managed to sit us very quickly. They have so many delicious food to choose from on the menu it is difficult... More

Our group of 8 stopped for lunch after a visit to Belle Isle. There weren't any events downtown so the restaurant was relatively empty. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the beer and menu. Everyone enjoyed the beer – the IPAs and Hefeweizen were light, the Malgoth was flavorful and unique. The food seemed to take a while to... More
