Great atmosphere, great service and excellent burger. The kind of place you wish was your local bar/hangout. I had the Topor Burger which was awesome. I wish I lived closer so I could try their other burgers!

We lucked into this place on 4th of July when it seemed that everything was closed. Pleasant patio area with the very eerie, abandoned central train station in the background. Nice staff. Good food. And the shake (when it finally came) was really fun - salted caramel with a shot of rum!.

Good old fashion type burger joint. Their lamb burger is excellent. They also have a good draft beer selection.

I'd eat here again and I would recommend it to people coming through the area. I'm picky about my burgers and I would give this one a 4.5/5. Nice job Mercury!!

If you are in Detroit and in the mood for a good burger, this is your place!! They have a lot to choose from, which made it hard to decide. My hubby got the Juicy, which is stuffed with cheese! I got the Local, which had pulled pork, and coke slaw on top! Both of them were delicious! We also... More

After seeing a television program months ago about the fried bologna sandwich at Mercury Bar, we finally made a trip to the restaurant. It was a beautiful day outside so we asked to be seated on the patio, which was a relaxed and cool atmosphere. Of course, hearing about the bologna sandwich we had to order that, and we did... More

I love this joint. An old burger bar turned "hip". Remodeled a few years ago with fantastic results. Wonderful cocktails, unusual menu and adult milkshakes, plus fried bologna! What's not to love? Parking can be a bit tricky but it's worth it.

Nice place for a burger and the burgers are great, but I love the onion rings. They remind me on when I was a kid and we would eat at Susie Q on Woodward in Royal Oak. Great beer batter rings. Anyway the place has great food and drink at a fair price

Thank Tim B
