An airport layover can be a real drag, but the experience doesn’t have to be as bad as travelers often make it out to be. A good bar or restaurant can change everything and one good place to visit at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport is Thee Irish Pub.
Thee Irish Pub is located in Concourse “B”, which isn’t known for having much to offer in the way of food and drink. Thee Irish Pub is possibly the best one in the bunch, with some good tasting sandwiches, salads, and a few traditional Irish food options like Shepherd’s Pie, Beef Stew, etc. Early risers will enjoy the breakfast foods and everyone will want to end their meal with a piece of cake or possibly a Guinness and Jamison Chocolate Ice Cream Float. The food is good for an airport and the food prices are not too bad.
Even if you’re not hungry, Thee Irish Pub is worth a visit for one other reason: To grab a pint or bottle of some delicious local beer. Yes, they sell Guinness Stout, Harp, and other common brands, but they always have a few local Michigan craft beers on tap and these beers are often better and more adventurous then the better known brews like Guinness. When I visited, I was impressed to find four different Michigan craft beer options. They even offer small samples of each so that you can taste them first before committing to a full pint.
Thee Irish Pub is a little on the pricey side for beverages so, depending on how many drinks are purchased, guests need to be prepared to possibly spend more on beverages than on food. The service is good, the atmosphere is nice, and while there are some better food options over in Concourse A, why not save your legs some walking time and eat/drink at Thee Irish Pub? It’s a good place to visit between flights with some decent food options and very tasty craft beers even if they are overpriced.
