Wow! I had the cajun chicken pasta and it was amazing! My family had burgers and chicken strips, and they were happy with their food too. The atmosphere here is family friendly, but would be a good place for a date or night out with friends. But, just sayin', get the pasta!!! Good selection of food at pretty reasonable prices ... read more

Took my family here and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The staff was friendly, the place was clean and welcoming. Service was quick and the drinks were sooo good. I had the Collusion draft.

Saturday downtown was packed with every restaurant having a 1.5 - 2 hour wait. Even with the wait, Detroit Brewing Company was efficiently seating guests. We had a last minute change to our party size from 2 to 6 people. The manager, Jeff, was more than accommodating and his team took great care of us. Quick service and the food was ... read more

Stopped in on a Friday night after catching a show at Detroit Opera House across the street. Grabbed seats right away at the bar. Bartender was friendly, let us sample a few brews. I had their seasonal dunkel (I prefer darker beers). I liked it. Also tasted their Ecto Kewler sour brew--I don't generally like sours, but this one had a ... read more

Was encouraged to visit this restaurant with the birthday club coupon, you get a $15 meal "credit" if you sign up online.

As a party of three on a Sunday afternoon, it was not too crowded. This could be because there was a football game and something going on at the theater. We were seated immediately.

LOVED this place! While on a quick 24 hour trip to Detroit we stumbled on this place and enjoyed it so much the first time we popped back in before we left town. The beer is quite tasty and the food was great as well! Cool older building and super convenient if you're headed  to a baseball game.

Just okay. For being a beer company, they only had maybe ~10 beers on draft and then we ordered one and they were out. Not sure if this is normal for downtown Detroit or not.

The food was definitely a bit on the pricy side, about 20% high
