About the restaurant
We've created a funky environment filled with unique art that pays homage to the city's more psychedelic side. It's completely different from the other HopCat locations -- big enough, but with an intimate vibe. With a small sidewalk patio, we’re located around the corner from the Michigan Theater, Hill Auditorium, State Theatre, Rackham Auditorium, and University of Michigan’s full campus.

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 wide 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.

One of our party requires gluten free. The server was extremely helpful and careful. Carlyle’s has a dedicated gluten free fryer which makes French fries possible for someone who is extremely sensitive to gluten.

We had a 5pm weekday seating. It was ‘museum quiet’ until we left. The server and busboy were very professional. The hostess seemed like she could have been a bit more friendly but she did wish us a happy anniversary. The food was great but it seemed like it could have been overpriced, but then again most restaurants seem overpriced lately.

About the restaurant
"Mammoths & saber-tooth tigers once roamed these lands in search of their rich salts. Paleo-Indians hunted, farmed and raised families here because of the salt springs. Early settlers named their town Saline after the salt springs, and now in this stunning +120 year-old former church, so does this brewery.

Salt Springs Brewery offers lovingly crafted & locally sourced food, true-to-style ales, wine, cider, and craft cocktails. Located in the heart of Saline, complete with an outdoor Biergarten and main dining room filled with the original stained from 1899, Salt Springs Brewery will quench your thirst and nourish your soul."
