I stopped in yesterday on a trip to Detroit to see the Tigers. This is my fourth visit, and finally got a meal here. It is located conveniently close to Commerica Park right across from the Detroit Opera House. As you walk in the bar is on the right and accommodates about 10-12 people. Brewing equipment is right behind the bar. The walls are brick with high stamped ceilings. There is an upstairs bar, but I have never made it up there.
They had five beers on tap. I had the Milkshake Stout, the ipa and the bock. They all were quality. They also had a tripel and a light beer. The bartender was friendly and fairly accessible. I was torn between ordering the mac 'n' cheese or the catfish. My decision was made for me when I was informed that they were out of mac 'n' cheese. My date ordered a turkey sandwich. She loved her food. Me, not so much. The catfish was covered in Cajun blackened seasoning. That is all I could taste. I have had Cajun catfish numerous times and it was never caked in seasoning. I couldn't finish my meal, and I am a fat ass that never leaves food on my plate.
Although, I was disappointed in my meal, my date was happy, and my wallet was not abused. It is very reasonable. I had four or five beers, my date had 2 or 3, we both ate, and it was around $40. I will go back because the beer is quality and I will try another meal. Or I can always go to Slow's.
One more thing. The restroom was not even close to being clean. But after a few pints, who can hit a urinal?
