Five friends hung out on the roof top bar and enjoyed a few pre-concert bevvies. The rooftop overlooks Comerica Park where the Detroit Tigers play. Staff is super friendly, drinks are terrific. Note: no smoking on rooftop patio !

Enjoyed our visit...it was a unique day and we had a limited menu due to outdoor activities, but the food was still everything we expected and hit the spot prior to a Tigers game. Great place, good atmosphere and close to the ballpark.

Fun visit to Cheli’s while the Cubbies were in town. Cheli’s was full of Cubs fans, great to see. Atmosphere was the same as any bar located near a ballpark before Gametime. Free wifi. Food was typical pub food, nothing impressive, but it’ll fill you...More

We had a big group here for drinks and lunch. The bar staff was great. The food was great but they didn’t have enough room to handle our big group so the wait for food was way too long.

Stopped in here for a quick drink prior to a hockey game. Nice interior and good service at the bar. My husband enjoyed looking at some of the memorabilia on the walls.

Just beside Comerica Park, Ford Field and Little Caesars Arena, Cheli's offers a great atmosphere for sports fans. It is more a bar than a restaurant so food is okay but the selection of draught beer is great! Have fun and say hello to Chris!
