About the restaurant
Opened on December 13, 2014 (yes, 12/13/14!) in a historic building at the corner of Woodward and Canfield. The Huma Room on the second floor features half of a black 1973 Cadillac Fleetwood mounted behind the wall and an outdoor patio. Located on Woodward Ave, it's easy to jump on the QLine or walk down to Little Caesars Arena, Comerica Park, or Ford Field.

HopCat was founded on the principles of bringing local craft beer a bit closer to the communities we love. We’re known for our award-wining Cosmik fries, which are beer battered, sprinkled with our signature cracked black pepper seasoning, and served with a side of warm cheese sauce. From burgers to tacos, our menu offers a range of delicious options.

We live the craft lifestyle - beer, cocktails and even craft food made from scratch. With a dedication to local breweries, sustainability and community engagement, HopCat offers craft beer and great food in a vibrant atmosphere for an inclusive, unforgettable experience.

We were staying in Midtown and decided to try HopCat for dinner. Atmosphere was fun and chill. Waitress, Skylar was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and made some good recommendations. We had the Space curds, Pickleback chicken sandwich with fries &cheese sauce and Bar Zee burger with fries & gravy. All were excellent! Would recommend for a casual lunch, dinner or after a show.
