    The Southwestern style chicken salad is really good. The bbq sliders not so much. If you like American light beers, get the Broadway Light or Baseball brew. Or try something new and more delicious!

    The steak dinner and the blackened salmon dinner are the best you can get! I've never had a more tender steak in my life!! And the asparagus that comes with is perfectly cooked! A definite must!!

    So glad I found this place! Make sure you get one of their beers that they brew. If you have any questions about the beer, Bethany is very knowledgeable n extremely nice! Free beer samples as well :)!

    Pasta Italiano and The Tuscan Tenderloin!!May possibly be my new favorite thing here! Pasta, steak, and veggies with a half of cheese pizza... What's not to love?

    The local 1529 IPA was superb, easily one of the best IPAs I've ever had! Also, the hostess and waitressing staff were excellent, very knowledgeable and extremely friendly! I'll def be going back!

    My brother and I were taking our kids along with some of our friends to the Tiger game. We all enjoyed everything from the appetizers, to the great tasting beers and the entrees ,and service great,

    Although I recommend it, the giant soft pretzel is just soft pretzel sticks so don't be fooled. Pizza Veneto is absolutely delicious. Tried all of their beers and enjoyed them all.

    With an attentive staff who knows just what beer to pair with your burger or pasta selection, DBC is a great place to cross-sample the city. [Eater 38 Member]

    Grab a beer before or after a game, as it's walking distance to Comerica Park and Ford Field. Order the stout.

    For something a little lighter, try one of their delicious salads with a side of Detroit Beer Cheese Soup!

    Flights are only $6.50 for 5 of them!! Definitely can't beat that. Pizza Caribbean is delish. Mussels & chicken quesadillas are good too.

    Best beers for the brew connoisseur are the downtown brown, Detroit dwarf and local 1529.

    The fish and chips are great! Be aware of the smell when you walk in, it's just the malt that they use for the beer.

    They will give you people mover tokens before you go. Join the Mug Club, if you're going to come back it's worth it.

    Don't come here on game day. Horrible service (took over an hour to get sandwiches), food wasn't good (was cold and bread was so soggy you could barely pick it up). Not worth it- go elsewhere!
