Great for a burger or a sandwich

This is good if you are not really up for dressing up for a night out. It is mostly a bar with some decent pub food. Service is great and the place is mostly friendly if you ignore the locals at the bar that are checking out your girlfriend, wife, daughter etc.

So you go down a few stairs, the place has a long bar that extends to the rear and built narrow, and slightly dark. You can tell this place is for friends and people who enjoy the bar scene or a meal. The menu is extensive, and it is bar food that happens to go well with a drink. Check... More

My husband and I like to travel so we drove to Frederick, MD. We were bored of the chain restaurants so I picked this place. When I walked in, it reminded me of Cheers. The food was great! A mug of beer was $2.42? They also have 75 cent drafts on certain days from 4p-7p. You can't find that anywhere!... More

Nice spot - in basement but cozy. Unfortunately for us we had a large group - 8 and on day after Christmas it was busy. So we could not sit at one table. Food better than average - hamburger - a bit small but price was reasonable. Service - she was busy as it was crowded. Nice décor. Nothing over... More

This is a neighborhood bar/restaurant. We stopped by on our way through Frederick looking for something good and relatively quick. We ordered burgers (the best in Frederick?) and got pre-formed burger patties. The fries were also precut frozen fries. Service was a bit slow but friendly. The BLT had overcooked bacon and it was tough without being crispy. The bar... More

Great small place for burgers and beer! French fries are amazing! One side order covers two people. Hubby had the pit beef --- awesome!! I had a cheese burger. Quick friendly service. Not an easy place if you have small children

My friend and I met up in Frederick today to get together and we ended our night at Wags. The food was amazing! I had the burger with chili on it and I would definitely go back and get it again. The service was fast and we had a very friendly waitress. Would definitely recommend!

You're never sure about basement restaurants. They're usually dark, as this one is, and oriented toward the bar. This one has very good food as well, even something like a Reuben sandwich. I would try the burger and fries next time based on the other reviews.

I went to Wags where I've been before but usually for happy hour. This time I went to meet someone for a local business meeting so no alcoholic libations to influence my review of the food. Firstly, the wait staff were quick, attentive and friendly...much like the "neighborhood bar" feel it has. Yes it's dark, yes it's subterranean, and yes,... More

Big burgers, great cheese steaks. Local flavor in a basement bar on Market Street. Decent beer prices, especially the Yuengling drafts (if that's your thing) if you catch them on the right night. Local Flying Dog microbrews at the bar for your craft beer fix.
