Love this place.

The beer is great and the potbelly pizza was fantastic. Our waiter recommended it and also said it was his favorite!

We visited here on a Sunday evening and our party of 9 had no wait for a table, which right away we thought was odd considering how large our party was! The menu is very small. Our Bowl Of Chips were not "tossed in a savory blend of spices", they were just chips with barely any spice on them. Without... More

My family was visiting from San Diego and we walked to the WAB. The food was great and my family loved the beer choices! We sat outside-it was a fun experience!!!

The WAB had a new menu since the last time I visited. I liked having more choices, but the pizza on the menu was very good. The servers here are always really nice too.

Stopped here for a late night drink around 11:45. We asked if we could order food and the waitress seemed annoyed and said "sure, but the kitchen closes promptly at midnight". We quickly looked at the menu and had trouble deciding because most of the options were weird vegan-like foods that used strange ingredients. We settled on a fondue cheese... More

The new Pizza themed menu at the WAB is a great alternative to Bar Food. Service is good, we usually sit at the bar rather than at a table.

The WAB (Woodward Avenue Brewery) is down the street from our house and we frequently stop by here for a quick snack and drinks when we are pressed for time. There is never a long wait for food or drinks. We usually sit at the bar and the bartenders are very nice. My favorite dish is the Turkey Chili Nacho's... More

They have their staple craft beers, along with a rotating tap. The food is good, service is fun and the atmosphere is trendy.

The WAB brews their own beer and arguably has the best patio in Ferndale. It's always a good place to stop for a drink or two. They just put out a new menu, the food is decent, and a good deal on Mondays when it's 1/2 off. Generally good service and friendly waitstaff. Don't forget to tip on the full... More
