Nice, informal "comfort food" spot. Great for burgers, sandwiches and brews. Friendly staff and great customers.

Hmmmm, not really sure about that. Maybe the best in Frederick, but not the best I've ever had. That shrimp bisque, though? Really, really good!

We had tickets to a show and decided to hit wags before the show. The place is tiny so it fills up quick... we got there just in time. Service was awesome, food was very good! They are famous for their burgers however I skipped getting one, friends loved theirs! When in downtown Frederick check wags out, it's locally owned.

I used to live in MD and loved going to Wags. I love the fries and the bacon cheeseburger. I seriously compare every burger I eat to a Wags burger. Now I live in Hershey PA, but I still drive down to Frederick once or twice a year to specifically go to Wags!

I love an old,small pub. And that is Wag's. Bar to sit at or small tables. Normal pub, bar food that is well prepared. Staff is very friendly and you just feel comfortable to sit and relax and have a drink or 3.

This bar/restaurant is well-like and highly rated for its burgers in Frederick, but we've had better and less expensively in many places. Its cellar-like location requires going down (and back up) a few steps, but is negotiable without difficulty. The burgers were freshly made, but neutral in taste. A variety of "add-ons" are available, but we opted for the basic... More

I actually regret that I never attended this place as a bar patron because it just has the best small underground bar vibe about it. The burgers are amazing, the fries are overwhelming. Need something to get you through, wags is a good stop. Very local, Very friendly.
