My husband and I are members of a mug club here and are usually underwhelmed with that beer selection. If you like very hoppy beer this would be the place for you. In my opinion most of the beer tastes the same and is served on the warmer side. They did just update their menu and have some nice new... More

Went here on a family visit to Royal Oak. Called ahead. Saturday night. How long was the wait for one person? No wait, I was told. Get there and it's packed, but find a high top near the bar. Sit down. Super loud but an energetic atmosphere. Odd that so many people had young kids in the place but was... More

Hello Kevin, We are sorry that you did not have a good experience at our pub this past Saturday.

Yes, you will always see children in our pub, as we... More

I have tried their spicy pasta, nachos, korean beef tacos and salads. Everything is decent, but nothing special to make me come more than once a year. Beer is decent, but the food leaves much to be desired. Patio is great for chilling out when it's warmer out.

Have gone to Royal Oak Brewery one three different occasions in the last 18 months, so my review is not based on a one time experience, but rather the collection of experiences I've had. The highlight of the place is certainly the beer. They offer a good selection that they brew and then a visiting beer in house as well,... More

To that point, we are preparing to roll out an updated menu in the coming weeks and we are confident that... More

The building has a bit of a smell of beer that I did not like but it is a brewery so I can't complain. The food was good but not amazing. There are a lot of options though which is nice. It is a big restaurant with a lot of seating and a bar obviously.

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.

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 anything - the waitress told it to... More
