Love this place.

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

My wife and I used to go here a lot. The beer's good and the so were the burritos, giant southwest salad and sandwiches. The last time we went, the menu was all new, very small and the food was just okay. I used to recommend the WAB, I don't anymore. There are too many amazing places to eat in... More

My friend and I met here for beer and appetizers. The atmosphere is great, and the service is exceptional. We were here during the MSU/UM football game, and although the game was on 3 TVs, they are smaller and unobtrusive, so you could keep up with the game outside of the noise of a sports bar. We loved the chips... More

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
