Nestled between the historic Brush Park and Midtown neighborhoods, Grey Ghost Detroit was born of dedicated craftsmen, committed to the art of butchery, refinement of crafting cocktails and unparalleled hospitality.
The name is a nod to the alias of the most notorious rum running pirate on the Detroit River during the Prohibition era. Although never identified, the legend of the Grey Ghost lives on at 47 East Watson. We can’t wait to meat you.See our menu

” One word, fantastic. Although it takes some planning to get a reservation, its well worth it. Dining out can be a challenge with my gluten allergies (celiac) and my wife being a vegetarian. Not a problem here. “
” Grey Ghost is a go-to and must show to out of town friends. And I highly recommend making reservations in advance because it can get packed! “
” By far the best drinks in Detroit. Grandma’s Garden and Repeat Offender are so refreshing. Their late-night menu and Sunday brunch menu are exceptional. “
” Stunning building. Fantastic service. Excellent duck. Creative cocktails and staff that knows how to explain what you’re ordering. Absolutely recommend. “
” We have been to Grey Ghost several times and have enjoyed ourselves every single time. There is no such thing as having a bad time at Grey Ghost. When you combine a very thoughtful and innovative menu with super friendly staff, you have a winning combo. “
” This placed did more than live up to the hype for me. From the cocktails, to the friendly staff, to the food everything was really top notch. “
” My new favorite Detroit restaurant. Everything was phenomenal. Wait staff attentive without being obnoxious. The Brussels sprouts were amazing. The whitefish with, of all things a sunny side egg on top, was to die for. “
