My friends and I wanted brunch on a Sunday afternoon in the Detroit area and didn't know where to go. So my friend found this place had just started serving brunch so we came here and we were seated outside as requested within 3 minutes of arriving.  We ordered the champagne bottle and carafe of orange juice to make mimosas. Yummy!We ... read more

If you're looking for good food and great beer at an excellent price this is the place. I love DBC. It's a staple and a must see if you've never been to Detroit. Tried just about everything on the menu and although it changes from time to time these are my all time favorites: The blarney stones(basically deep fried ruben balls), th ... read more

A frequent stop
We stop here fairly often, home brews, great food (the Jambalya!). Always great service, upstairs, downstairs on outside-all are great options.

So the food was better than I expected which was great! Cocktail was alcohol heavy and filled to the brim! Beer was hoppy and hoppin! I enjoyed the food so much. This has it all!

Stopped by here after a Tiger game and was seated right away in a dark room at a low top table. I had a Barrel Aged Collusion and a Cubano sandwich with seasoned fries. The craft beer was very good but overpriced ($1 an ounce)....More ... read more

Stopped by here after a Tiger game and was seated right away in a dark room at a low top table. I had a Barrel Aged Collusion and a Cubano sandwich with seasoned fries. The craft beer was very good but overpriced ($1 an ounce). I tried to get the 12 ounce less expensive can but was told that was for to-go only. The Cubano sandwich wa ... read more

Michael and Zachary are amazing. They have been amazing all night and so helpful when deciding what kind of beer to suggest. Perfect for all newcomers and beer experts. They were so nice and fun they made this experience amazing. Can't wait to come back!!

I had the grand river red when coming in one afternoon. I was a tad thrown off by how dark it was, probably because of how sunny and bright it was outside. The staff was great, and was always there if I needed something. I went at lunchtime and the atmosphere was mildly lacking, probably due to the time of day. I would come by again ... read more

Blake was so helpful in finding me just what I wanted. Great service! We wanted the tangerine beer that was out. We returned because the atmosphere and the Brewery Quesadilla were so good last time. (That time we were seeing a show at the Opera house. This time, we made a special trip.) So, we tried other things. Broadway light was v ... read more

The husband and I sampled the salads and beer here while in town. The patio area, though small, was nice for those of us not sitting near the water spout coming from the side of the building. The beer we sampled was some of the...More ... read more

Great hospitality!
Paris Kelly via google.com - Jun 17, 2019
Cool little brewery in the middle of downtown. The beer is good, but the food is what shines here. We had tasty calimari and chorizo Mac and cheese. The wait staff was friendly, but the greeter at the front seemed to be having a bad day.

This place  been the only place I've frequently went for years. My daughter has worked here for over 5 years. She's been dedicated, hard working and loyal. The current manager has come in and disrespected employees, fired several employees for no reason at all. They have witnessed this idiot getting high off of cocaine as well as get ... read more

Nice brewery!  The beer was great but what I'm really writing this review for was surprisingly the food.  I had a lamb burger the first night.  It was outstanding.  Bartender recommended the seasoned fries.  She was right.  The next night I had the only steak on the menu.  It was only $16 bucks and should have been $25.  It was perfe ... read more

Cool place!
This place has a great beer selection and an array of good eats! I really enjoyed the chilled atmosphere! The wait staff was very friendly and the pizza was amazing.

Great watering hole
After a full day touring Detroit, it was time for a couple of cold ones. Since we were so close to this place, we stopped in. Glad we did! Good selection of beers and a nice atmosphere.

Good food but terrible service. Won't be trying to go back for lunch as they couldn't get us the food in under an hour.
Kris W. via yelp.com - May 5, 2019
Great selection of house made beer and food at this downtown Detroit standard. My favorite beer is the Detroit Dwarf. A great ALT-style beer! If you are downtown for a game, go check them out.

Stopped for a Sundae. Delicious!!
Rose Herman via google.com - May 1, 2019
Great Service
We came here with a large tour group for a Sander’s ice cream sundae. We were seated in a vast upper room and the service was terrific. I didn’t imbibe on this particular trip, however the coffee was excellent!
VaporK8 via tripadvisor.com - Apr 30, 2019
Great food! Good beer and Ace is a great server! The only issue was we arrived 10 minutes early after Running the D and they would not let us in....really😕. Cater to your clientele, thats what keeps you in business, just saying.

Always solid selection of brews ...
Always solid selection of brews and quality is there. Good traditional brews and innovative ones as well that are nearly always a hit. Core staff have been there for years - a good sign. Growlers and canned-to-order brews available. I think the menu is above average - well above average - for a bar like this. Lots of seating and grea ... read more

Crowded but great beer
Came by on a Saturday night, where the place was close to jammed, but with good service and very good beer you get a long way. Worth a visit.

Stopped in for drinks and dinner before a concert at the Detroit Opera House.  Sat at the bar downstairs, our bartender was very nice and had several recommendations of the beer and food.  We tried a few IPA's and a nice pilsner but went with the Local 1529 IPA.  The atmosphere at the bar was really nice, other patrons and bartenders ... read more

One of better options I have gone too. Very good burgers and calamari.

Went here for dinner on a Saturday. This is relax place with a cool vibe. I had a gin and tonic and the Santa Fe salad. They have a good selection of beers but I am not a beer drinker. The service is really friendly and fast. The salad was a good portion but bland for my taste. I would not get it again.
Fernanda O. via yelp.com - Apr 20, 2019
Overall ok. Service was good and the beer was fine but a little on the warm side. Was offered a few tastes before settling in on the opening day IPA. The jambalaya was meager. Two shrimp, a little chicken, a little more sausage with rice and garlic toast aka 1/2 pizza with mozzarella cheese and garlic salt. Please note the parsle ... read more

Quiet place with typical pub offerings, great stop for a quick drink before or after a game. The food was okay, grilled cheese left a lot to be desired. Beer was on the warm side, nothing I would order a second glass of. Place could benefit from additional lighting, we were sat by the stairs in a darkened corner - we felt like shadow ... read more

I came here with my boyfriend after visiting another brewery. Everything was just OK. We sampled all except two beers they had on tap and the IPA was the only one I didn't mind but there was nothing special about the beers to me. Our bartender was very friendly though and the food did look good.

Great food, love being downtown
Great area close to the opera house, Detroit Tigers and Lions and so much more! Great brewery beers, burgers, fish and chips and more. Always have had friendly service. Can be very busy, depending on what’s going on though. Check out their website.

Food was great! I had the bbq pulled chicken sandwich, friends had cajun catfish and chicken creole pasta.  Everyone enjoyed their food.  Our server was Taylor, and she did a great job, very attentive.  Would definitely go back.  Great place to take work colleagues.

So we got in and we were greeted quickley. The server got us our drinks quickley. It took us awile to get our food but the nachos were pretty good. The sour cream... good, guac... ok, salsa... pretty good. But altogether really good. There was some spice so if you dont like that i wouldent do the sides altogether.

I only had a pint of beer here. The local 1529 IPA was decent. Not something I would order again though. I wasn't a fan of the Botanical Fortress. Service was fast and friendly.
