Stopped for lunch before noon and was quickly seated. Service was attentive and our orders were quickly taken. I enjoyed their seasonal stout. It was okay probably would not have it again. Liked their IPA beer better. The pizza carribean was good and the crust was done without being burned. I would recommend the pizza.

We checked this place out on our way to the Tigers game. Very close to venue. We had burgers, wings and their garlic fries. All were good. My husband enjoyed their beer too!

Holy crap this place takes forever. We were here trying to have a meal for like two hours. One person's food came a half hour before anyone else's. The beer is pretty good, food was mediocre, not warm, soggy. We had to ask for silverware, water, and our checks multiple times. Everything here took forever. Do not go here. It... More

Ate here after a Detroit Cycle Pub evening trip. They easily accommodated our group of 15 and everyone loved their food, the prices (reasonable) and the selection. Service was fast and helpful.

I read that Detroit Beer Co was among the best breweries in Michigan. So, on a recent trip to Detroit I had to go and see for myself. Convenient location downtown and within walking distance to most hotels, the Detroit Beer Co seemed to be an unpretentious brewpub and alright on a weeknight. I found the beer to be good,... More

Our walking tour ended here for a beer just before 6pm. Surprise! Appetizers half price. And they were all huge and tasty. The beer was good , too, even if I am not a real beer drinker - several options, with tasting notes.

I've found that the beer at many of these new small brew pubs tends to taste about the same and sometimes isn't all that good. I really enjoyed the beer at Detroit Beer Co. I tried several and each one seemed to have a good distinctive flavor. I especially enjoyed the Red. The appetizers and the service were good. The... More

It was a pre-tigers game lunch with office colleagues, food wasn't great, good for beers. Not sure if I will go again for food.

This place has a good selection of nice local beers. The service was very slow, our waiter seemed completely disinterested in his job. We ordered the calamari for a snack, it was like rubber and a very small portion for the price. Also served with a red sauce.... Odd!
