Rustic American Cuisine


“We’re just friends cooking for friends”

Today's Rotating Menu


Located in Downtown Detroit, Republic Tavern delivers a modern take on an old world tavern experience with an emphasis on nose-to-tail eating.

In 2015 Republic Tavern was awarded with Best New Restaurant by Eater Magazine.  Working closely with local farmers allows our menu to ebb and flow with Michigan’s seasons. By partnering with local Michigan suppliers we identify the best ingredients available and use those ingredients as an inspiration for our constantly evolving menu.  Our approach to drinks is taken with equal care featuring natural wines, craft beers, and premium whiskey options.

Each night you dine with us you are invited to a celebration of food and social experience. Join us on our exploration of what Michigan has to offer in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere shared by friends and family alike.
