    Frozen pizza rolls taste better than this place. So unimpressed. Yuck.

    Mediocre beers and pizza. Skip this place altogether unless you have no other options

    The BBQ chicken pizza was great. wish I could say the same for the service. It took 17 mins to get a waiter. The place is beautiful with lots of potential but the service is definitely lacking.

    Summer wheat is exactly what you're looking for

    Honestly - the VERY best non-deep dish pizza *anywhere*.

    Pizza, deep crab, sample beers, and all beers !!

  • Ross R.

    Good pizza. Not the best, but certainly not the worst. Awesome patio.

    Pale ale & bronx bomber. Chili also on point.

    First time here and a friend suggest the "Marry Did Have" pizza! If you don't mind a little foreign touch to your food please try it.

    Love Ghettoblaster. Pizzas are good. Great atmosphere. Tucked off of Woodward up by Wayne State. Cool place.

    Decent beers, bizarre parking situation, great food. I recommend the "Mary Had A...." pizza. (It's lamb, get it? )

    Intimate. Definitely has the Cass Corridor vibe. Ghetto Blaster is by far their best, the rest are just OK. 🍺

    Produces handcrafted, superior quality beer. Go on a guided tour of the brewery with up to 8 people. Read more:

    Forgot to add that the hard cider in incredible and the bartenders are the best I've ever seen!

    Pear and fig pizza is insanely good! The Danimal has a great flavor combination. The dough is some of the best Ive ever had.

    Getting attention not only for Motor City Brewing Work's craft brew scene, but also for its creative pizza and chili options. [Eater 38 Member]

    Only park in designated Motor City BW parking spots or you will get towed. There is also a MCBW lot in back.

  • Michael C.

    Highly recommend the beer flight. Make sure to try sodas as well! No caffeine.. hand crafted like the pies.

    Michael Couch · June 28, 2013
  • Dana D.

    Amazing fresh food !! The pizzas are grand !! If you are a beer drinker try their beer . The brew & make it themselves . Love the atmosphere . I think I have another favorite spot in Detroit !

    Honey porter was awesome, as was the BBQ Chicken Pizza. Parking situation is an absolute farce, however.

    Robert Hayes · June 16, 2013

    The SUMMER brew is the move. Go chill roof top with some of that!

    Sam Zoll · June 13, 2013
  • Cate S.

    Their pizzas are delicious! One will feed 1-2 people. The Godfather Part 2 is absolutely amazing.

    Cate Spurr · June 3, 2013

    Slow service so don't come starving or you will be in a world of hurt. Great hard cider.

    Ghettoblaster and the godfather pizza... awesome

    Megan Casey · April 18, 2013
  • Mark R.

    The beer here is amazing, but you got to have a pizza. Try the sopla fuego if you like spicy stuff. It has a good bite.

    Mark Reicha · April 5, 2013
  • Ryan C.

    Delicious pizza for only ~$10 and beers were unique and tasted terrific as well. Quick service even though the place was packed and we had a great time.

    The pear and fig pizza was awesome, if you're looking for something a little sweet.

    Suchi · March 7, 2013
  • Steve H.

    Watch your parking! Obey the signs! No joke, you could be towed. With that, great place for a really decent variety of sips. Check out the roof in summer.
