Scotch Ale was very good and the IPA's were good as well. Only had drinks we were there Snowfest weekend and were extremely busy but the bartenders were exceptional. We didn't eat so I can't speak to the food but thought it seemed a little overpriced but to be fair many breweries are.

Stopped in to grab a bite to eat during the Snowfest. Service and food were excellent though food prices were a little high.

Stopped in for snacks and a couple of beer. Great help from Taylor who was very knowledgeable and friendly. So nice when staff take the time to talk to you. Thanks Taylor for making us feel welcome. Food was good and we enjoyed the Old Detroit beer.

Thank you Jenny for your service! The food was delicious and not too expensive. There was no wait and the food did not take too long to come. We preferred the quieter section away from the bar. Bring back the onion rings 😉

We visited on a very busy Saturday afternoon. We added our name to the 1-1/2 hour waiting list and went for a walk while we waited. We arrived back with 15 minutes to spare and were told our wait would be an additional 1/2 to 1 hour, minimum. We kept our eye on open seating on the bar area and... More

Portobello sandwich was tasty with fried onion & roasted red pepper. Bun was too much bread for me, so just at bottom bun. Old Detroit red & hefeweisen were tasty, but not the best. Christina took great care of us.

When in area need to stop here. Mid week so not real busy this time of the year. Menu is reduced as well since last here in summer time. Mac and cheese with chicken is fantastic. Good home brews as well, tried batch 69, which was excellent.
