We visited here on our first evening in Detroit. The server was very helpful, she took us through the menu and gave her recommendations for both beer and food. Our food arrived very fast and it was very good. We decided to return 2 nights later after a wedding. The server this time was not efficient. It took about 15... More

This place has awesome food and a great atmosphere. It's always hopping after a home Tigers game but it is worth a stop in! The beer cheese soup is where it's at!

Declining quality of service, long waits, food quality has gone down. Sad to see this happen. We used to go here a lot before Tiger games, but after last nights experience we will not be returning here. Lots of other establishments in the city to try. Management needs to act fast to turn around this downward spiral.

Friendly staff, great food (and plenty of it), great beer and great location. Don't forget to sign up for the birthday program to get a free meal for your birthday.

Ate here for lunch on a work day. Turkey burger was above average, not amazing. Same for rings. I think the beer would have enhanced the experience, but I was not drinking. I think I would only come back if I planned to try the beer. If the beer is any good, this would be 4 stars.

Downtown Detroit can be a little depressing, so the Beer Company provides a good excuse to duck in and have a quick pint. The Tigers game had just concluded, so the joint was packed. Their beers, and wings, might not have been perfect, but on this day, they were close. If I ever return to Detroit, I would not hesitate... More

With all the craft beer places, this one has very few craft beers (6 on a Saturday night). The waitress was great and her service was good. A kid brought our orders to the table and he did not know what he was doing. He just stood there looking at us holding up a plate. The orders were right but... More

Yesterday was the third time in just over a year I have been here. Each time I had great food, drinks, and service. If it is a game day, you will want to get here early or expect to wait for a table. The beers are good, and there is a wide variety to choose from. Waitstaff is always friendly,... More
