Great burgers, fries, and drinks in a unique subterranean pub. Reasonably priced eats, fun local clientele, and a taste of Frederick's past.

Stopped at Wags for lunch while walking through Frederick. Great little pub that is down a few steps from street level. Food was well prepared and service was great! Not far from the parking garage.

After a long day of rock climbing in the local area, we boys were ready for a feast. We high tailed out of the hills into Frederick in search of a classic American meal. Due to our grimy appearance, upon entering Wags I was overcame with staring eyes from the crowd. Standing there for about 30 seconds and contemplating if... More
