An oasis in the wasteland of Detroit. Sketchy and interesting neighborhood, parking is not the issue people make it out to be. This single gentrified block houses this quite nice and very busy location. Tap and bottle list are expansive and great. No samplers so it limits your drinking. Food is great, mac and cheese way over hyped. For what you get a good deal and service was nice and friendly. Except for the food coma afterwards a great place to visit.

Friendly, bright revamped (earlier in 2013) spot downtown. Eye opening tap selection of styles and fresh beers. worth going out of the way for, one of the best selection in Detroit area if not the best. I am told the food is great.

Easy to find location with easy street parking. Busy but got two seats at bar. Friendly staff and good service. Good draft and bottle selection. Food was delivered quickly and was nice portions at a very fair price. Well worth the visit and rating.

people had been very insistent that I go there so we finally made the trek on a Wednesday, not thrilled by the long wait time but in the end it was well worth it... the food is outstanding, some of the best bbq I’ve had period, the sauces are all great... the draft selection is decent but they don’t provide a beer list and the chalk board is really hard to read so it makes ordering difficult, decent bottle selection as well... good service... come for the food but you can get a good beer as well

A nice place in Detroit is always a plus. Good ambiance and service. Selection is good but not great. I have not been overly impressed with the BBQ, but most are. Prices are good.

Arrived around dinner time on a Saturday night and there was a pretty long wait list already. We managed to get a table on the patio fairly quickly though, we gambled on the rain holding off and did well. Patio is nice, you wouldn’t really know that you are in Detroit! Tap list is impressive, with a decent mix of great beers I knew and local stuff I had never heard of. I tried Stone, Founders, Odd Side, and Motor City brews this visit. Most of our table got the "Your choice" plate of ribs, a second meat, and two sides. This is a ton of food. The mac and cheese was so big that it is almost entree sized elsewhere. The cornbread was some of the best I have ever had - light and fluffy and delicious. Ribs were very good, pulled pork was excellent. They have an assortment of sauces you add yourself. Overall, a great stop. Staff was friendly and relatively knowledgeable about the tap list, though our server confused a few beers with each other at one point. Will definitely come back here the next time I am in Detroit.

Best BBQ I’ve ever had inside a really well designed space. Stacked with some fine taps from the Great Lakes region. Nothing rare on tap or in bottles, but everything is above average, for sure. Not to be missed.

Ce restaurant vaudrait la peine juste pour les brisket mais la liste de fût en fait un incontournable à Detroit. Situé dans un quartier en ébullition mais qui flirt avec le côté sombre de Detroit. Laissez votre voiture dans le stationnement ’’surveillé’’ derrière le Mercury Bar.

A solid spot in the D with a great tap list. The atmosphere and food are good and service is solid. A good beer spot, but there are better BBQ spots out there.

Immediately after you set foot inside the smell of amazing food overwhelms the senses. Next you see a top notch tap list that is a combination of the best in Michigan and a few from further afield. Put together it would be hard to come here without finding at least one worthwhile draft. Prices are typical of a high end place with the more limited going up to about $8.
The neighborhood itself is a little rough but there should be ample parking. While I may not go on a Friday night this is a definite stop in Detroit for Sunday brunch. Come hungry and leave full of great pork, ribs, and a couple pints of your favorite Midwestern styles.
