The crab cakes were amazing!! They used tons of crab and minimal other stuff. We also had fried chicken, which was good... but the crab cakes were better! With the crab cakes, the sauce was perfect. I liked the slaw, but my husband didn’t (not a veggie fan). Service was great. Ricardo was attentive and friendly. He also pick the crab cakes for us. Good choice! More

Briggs DetroitBriggs Detroit

American | Detroit, Detroit

With an unrivaled view of downtown, the Sky Box at Briggs is Detroit's best rooftop deck. And the dining room serves up some truly excellent dishes!

Full kitchen, awesome djs, and slushies... 'nuff said.

Everything from our freshly ground burgers to house-braised corned beef to bbq pulled pork is cooked in house just for you... the meat-lovers

If you want a pretty salad or quinoa(whatever that is) we suggest you try some hippy place in Royal Oak.

Don't get us wrong. We like vegetables... as long as they're deep fried with a side of ranch.

Oh yeah, we love beer too.

And whiskey.

Yeah whiskey, a lot.More

Discover Detroit

Detroit probably has more nicknames than any other city. The two most common, Motor City and Motown, stem from its large contributions to the automobile and the music industry. This booming city also offers a lot in the way of sporting events, attractions and eating establishments. Detroit not only has restaurants offering food from almost every culture, but it is also known for many of its own special delicacies. Many of the eating venues offer foods that have actually originated here, including Detroit-style pizza, Corridor sausage and double-baked rye bread. You can also taste Eastern Michigan favorites like Coney Island hot dogs and Detroit Street Brick. These are some of the most famous delights of the region, and Detroit and the surrounding area are a great place to give them a try.
