Small, basement level bar/restaurant with a big bar feel. There's a long bar on one side of the room. Dark interior. Nothing fancy. Casual. Good service. Very good burgers. I had the Bluburger with bacon. Burger was on the small side (1/4 lb) compared to other locations. Fine for me for lunch but probably too small for others. The blue... More

Recommended by a local for great burgers and fries and they delivered on that promise! Fun underground bar atmosphere, perfect medium rare burger and absolutely delicious fresh made fries!

Food good choices for burgers I had the chili burger which was average just a 1/4 pound pattie but the chili made up for... More

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

Located in the basement of a building. Nothing fancy and a bit small. Food and service were great. I had a burger with sauerkraut and my wife had a salad. We also ordered a side of fries. Everything was delicious. Perfect lunch stop.

We waited at the bar for about 25 minutes for a table. We seemed to be the only ones waiting for a table. But at least twice another couple strolled in and hovered at a table when somebody pulled out a wallet and got the table. A little frustrating, we finally gave up. The food looked good. I would recommend... More

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
