Awesome place

Been here a few times. Love the wag burger, my favorite so far! The black bean soup was delicious. Friendly bartender and very good food, will definitely come again!

A little hole in the wall type of establishment (since 1981). Wags is located in the lower level of one of the old row houses on Market Street in down town Frederick. The burgers and reuben sandwiches are craveable. As always the food was delicious, fresh and the service was quick, efficient and friendly. We also ordered a large order... More

Wags is a fantastic hold in the wall pub in downtown Frederick. The food is fantastic and the staff is wonderful. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends.

We were in Frederick on a lovely spring day wandering around and someone remembered that years ago they used to eat at Wags. Wondering if it was as good as she remembered, we ventured in to give it a try. Small and dark inside, but with friendly staff and a nice menu. I had a wagburger, which was excellent. Other... More

This place is in the basement of a building on North Market Street. It doesn't look like much from the outside, and it's fairly small inside but it's good for what it is. It has a dive bar sort of vibe but it's reasonably nice. The menu is the high end of bar food with good sandwiches, etc. the chili... More

No ambiance just a town bar with better than average food and cheap beer. Don't bring a large group or expect to be able to carry on a conversation. Bathrooms not the cleanest. The food is the star here.

This is the place to go in downtown Frederick. Whether you are looking for a cool place to get out of the heat or a nice place to snuggle and get warm in the Winter, the underground location is perfect. This place has garnered awards for the best burger in town for years, but don't stop there. All of their... More

Excellent ruben and excellent burger served at a small, underground bar. The fries are fresh cut, but weren't my favorite. I would recommend the sandwiches for a quick sit-down lunch or early dinner.

It is a basement bar where lots of locals stop. Lunch time is always busy, the soups are excellent and the sandwiches are wonderful but every body gets the fries. Little dark for me but the service is always fast and the drinks are good.
