Good Food, Great Beer
Had dinner at the Detroit Beer Company on both Friday and Saturday night. Friday night was exceptional. Upon arrival, were told it would be an hour wait for a table. We put our name on the list and less than 20 minutes later we're called and given a table. As craft beer fans we tried several of the beers available. They were all exce... read more

Great dinner before show!
Special night for my wife's birthday and our 3 adult daughters. Detroit Beer Company has a great location next to the Detroit Opera House. Nice corner table upstairs - lots of tables downstairs with a large bar in front of the house craft beers. Dinner was very good - we had a nice assortment of meals that were all prepared nicely. ... read more

Must try the Local IPA if you're a beer lover
Having been a member for approx. 5 years or more, I absolutely have no reservations about recommending this Restaurant to Locals and Visitors to the Motor City. The food is Great and the Beer is EXCELLANT ! I'm biased toward the Local IPA. This place is great for watching sports and the Staff will try to accommodate your request to ... read more

This was my first time in Detroit, and first time at the Detroit beer co. The smell of hops fills the lungs and make you crave one of there carefully crafted brewed in house beers.

A return visit  before going to see Lion King, the parking location was great, but also $20.00. Husband enjoyed chicken rice soup, I enjoyed beer cheese soup.

The food here might just be better than the beer. Always a solid choice for a dinner downtown. The service is not always on point, so watch out for that if you are in a time crunch.

Great Restaurant
We go here everytime we are in Detroit visiting our son. If you sign up you get a "free Birthday meal! Excellent food (lots of choices) and great service. Close to downtown so you can eat and go to a Tigers game afterwards!

Much better service, food, attitude, environment, etc. We had a good quesadilla and beers to go with it.

Great fun lunch
We dined on the Tenderloin sandwich and the Shrimp Po Boy. Both were good as well as the seasoned fries. Beer was tasty and service at the bar was great considering it was so busy by the Opera House with a hockey game and the auto show.

We stopped at Detroit Beer Company after the auto show for a quick bite. The atmosphere was nice just like any other brewery/sports bar.

I've been here twice. I really like the bars layout and the general atmosphere. I actually wasn't big on the beer. It was ok, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it. That said; lots of others on here seem to like it.

Good food, decent beer. The country grilled cheese is to die for, and the shepherds pie can soak up some booze. Always super busy on game nights, so plan accordingly.

Good Food and Beer
Detroit Beer Company offers a great food and beer selection. The beers are their own products. They also have a full bar. In a recent trip our group had the Brewer's Stromboli and Brewery Quesadillas both were very good. In previous visits I have really enjoyed the J.L. Hudson Maurice Salad - a Detroit classic and the Shepard's Pie. ... read more

Good beer, great food, unique place
Craft beer is always a win. There have a diverse tap list and the beer was good. The menu was large but not overly so and trendy. Burgers are cooked to order. The Baja fish tacos were very tasty. I'd recommend them. This place of industrial modern. Cool environment. I'd definitely return for beer and food without hesitation.

Brew was the best part
We visited on a Saturday evening and were immediately seated after we found the hostess who was not at her station. The food is your basic bar fare of burgers and American classics.

Food was average
Don't order hard liquor. One shot of flavored vodka grape to be exact was $8. The food was average. My husband enjoyed the fried fish. I had a salad with grilled chicken. I must say the grilled chicken was perfectly cooked. I truly think I could have eaten the same meal at a Coney Island and paid a lot less.

Very good, great atmosphere!
Never been there. Definitely glad we went. Solid beer selection, but they could use a little more flavor. The food was spectacular and the prices were outstanding. Between two of us, two flights, six pints, starter, and main course, all for less than $60! Would go again without question.

Pizza choices are good and plenty for a hungry appetite.
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.
