Good, but not great. Most dishes very good. Small draft selection, just ok beers

Decided to visit this on the way home from somewhere. Read the online reviews first, and people nailed a few points. First, this place is very noisy. VERY. They have music playing, but it's very hard to hear above the noise. We started out with the beer selection, which is not printed on... read more

Recently visited this neighborhood in north suburbs of Detroit, highly recommend going the Royal Oak Brewery. Good food, tasty IPA's and other brews, fun atmosphere, but better bring quarters parking is an issue in this town.

Stopped by for lunch because I wanted to sample some of their beers. The beers we tried were excellent and the food was good, too. I had their steak salad and appreciated the steak was cook as orders, tender and juicy. We all enjoyed our meals. This place can get really loud so be ready for that.

I tried few beers but all were mediocre beers. Food was very good. Chicken jambalaya was very good. I don't think I will go to this place again for beer. I have much better choices in and around the town.

Hello Koshy747, We are sorry to hear that you couldn’t quite find a beer to suit your tastes. We do strive to provide our customers with a varied selection to choose from so it is very disappointing to hear that one did not truly catch your eye. It is wonderful, however, to learn how much you enjoyed the food! Customer... More

Great beer selection with excellent food. A can't miss combination. Always a good place to meet friends but a good business lunch location as well.

Royal Oak Brewery is at 215 East Fourth Street, one block east of Main in downtown Royal Oak. Be prepared for LOUD because the walls are brick. Our Cheese Tortellini Alfredo $11.99 was good (photo), as was the Royal Oak Burger $8.99, although a little dry for my taste (photo). Our service was excellent. I chose the local brew “4th... More

Hadn't been here in a couple years so thought we would give it a try. Used to have good food, not any more. Waitress kept saying the food was real good and said the nacho's were very good. The food was NOT good at all. Voodoo Curry, Brewhouse Nachos with ground beef and Baja Fish Tacos all had little taste... More

I enjoy coming here with the family. I have a toddler and he can be loud when we go out to eat and since the whole place is loud it's not an issue. Menu is large and diverse. Everyone is happy when when we eat here.
