Went here for the beer and was not disappointed but the food and service were just as good. Great little place within walking distance of the stadiums and reasonably priced. The Brigand Steak and Fish & Chips were both excellent options.

Needing an excuse to go for a drive we head here for a late lunch on a winter Saturday. The porter was good and satisfying but we left half of a margarita pizza uneaten. The crust was bland and unable to elevate the timid tomato...More

This was a good place to meet with a large group and we liked our food. Got the wrong appetizer, waited super long for one person's drink, and at least two orders arrived not as ordered. Maybe it was because we were a large group?

Come for the beer, stay for the food. The restaurant has a cozy feel thanks to the layout and lighting, but it is spacious and could hold a sizable gathering. Beer is good, if not great. Maybe stop in for a snort before attending the...More

I was scouting around for some good wings in Detroit and I found this place. Ugh.. place was empty(that should have been a sign) and the service was... not the deal. The wings are meaty but they taste like they have been marinating in vinegar...More
