Brewer's Alley was busy, but not too bad a wait. This was our first time, and really enjoyed it. Our server Kevin was cheerful and helpful, cracking jokes with the kids and helping with beer selection. Most of us had the Alley Burger this time, and it was delicious. I had the soup of the day (roasted red pepper and... More

Walking through the city streets and finding a nice patio to dine was a plus. Our waiter, Dante, was so knowledgeable about the dishes offered and made our visit very pleasant. The beer samplers were a plus at $8. My bean burger and fries were very tasty. My husband had the fish special and thought it was very good.

My wife and I have eaten at Brewer's Alley many times with friends and have enjoyed all of our visits. Nothing fancy. Good sandwiches and Pizzas. Good, cold beer. The place is usually always hopping.

Tried this spot with a large group. One of the best experiences with a large(17) group ever. We were seated promptly at 7pm as per the reservation. The wait staff were incredible. Handled us like it was a party of 4 not 17. The food(surf and turf) was quite a bargain at 26.00 dollars. I tried the Scottish ale first... More

When we first arrived, we requested a booth table so that we could keep our rambunctious toddler blocked in. The 2 ladies at the hostess stand quickly shot us down and said the booth area was closed. We were getting ready to walk out the door and our awesome waiter told them to just sit us there and he would... More

Had a great meal and drinks with work colleagues. Very nice beer selection which shouldn't be a surprise given the name. I had the crab cakes which were excellent. Enjoyable meal!

If you have an opportunity, the 2nd floor patio area is a great place to grab lunch while walking around downtown Frederick. The beers are excellent and they actually have really tasty raw oysters on the half shell if you like those. The servers are fantastic and we've always been pleased with how far the waiters and waitresses will go... More

We have been frequenting Brewer's Alley for many years and have always enjoyed the experience. It has consistently been one of our favorite places for lunch, dinner or special events (even wedding receptions). Their recent expansion and remodeling has really opened up and improved the dining experience. With the expanded facility there is a lot more room for people to... More

I had not been here for many years because of disappointing food and atmosphere. On a recent balmy Saturday afternoon, my husband and I were looking for somewhere to enjoy an outdoor beer and snack. There is a newly remodeled section with folding doors that remain open to allow the breeze in while keeping patrons shaded from the sun. We... More
