Popped in with my girlfriend on a recent trip to Detroit.
The bad: couldn’t see the chalkboard from our table so I had to order from the bar to get an idea of the taps. Asked the female bartender for a Huma-Lupa-Licious, waited several minutes, eventually the male server snagged me a pint. She then scolded the two of us, claiming she had already poured the beer and it was on its way. They have a massive bottle list but we were not offered a bottle menu during our meal. Ordered the veggie omelette and hash browns while my girl had the French toast and bacon. Both dishes were lukewarm and lacking in flavour, but we bit the bullet since we were starving and in a rush.
The good: high ceilings, long narrow bar, and unpretentious crowd provide a great atmosphere. Good music and a comfortable, relaxed vibe. Our waitress saved the visit from disaster by serving our food quickly and making a solid reco for my second beer. $2.50 pints of Huma Lupa and Reserve Special were tasting lovely and the lady enjoyed her mimosa. All Michigan crafters on tap with a wide range of styles.
Overall: even though we weren’t blown away by our experience, I’d be willing to return as the selection is quite impressive. I’ll just be sure to *ASK* for a bottle list and avoid the mediocre food next time. Worth a shot if you’re looking for stellar beer in a cozy environment.

24 taps of all Michigan beers, occasional tap takeovers from different brewers. Can't beat being in an old train ticket officer with plaster vaulted ceilings!
Service can be great sometimes, other times just good. Large menu of food available, with many daily specials.
Beer prices are okay, about on par for microbrews.
Crowd can be a great bunch of Detroiters, or can be the awful ignorant Quicken faux-Detroit boosters.
