“The Wurst Bar is the BEST bar!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

What a great find! You certainly won't want for beer....any beer; they have LOTS...and some micro-brews change seasonally of course! The full bar is top shelf (Redbreast right up front!) and it's a healthy pour! Service is terrific (ask for Brigid or Melissa) and very accommodating. This is sooo NOT your everyday bar food. It all sounds like bar food.....but wait until you take your first bite! They have a real Chef who knows food, pairing, and plating! The jambalaya was thick, meaty, and had a great kick; the corn-dog brats were over the top,served with a homemade ketchup and sauce that made them a meal unto themselves! Delicious!! Burgers were perfect.....really...just perfect; and I wasn't too sure about "tots", but the mixed white and sweet potato pile served with a not-too-sweet marshmallow fluff dip, was so good. Just when we realized that we were not going to be able to walk out of the place, the frozen Whoopi Pies appeared......one peanut butter and the other a mint covered in chocolate ganache!
The space is also something to see....from the antlers and crimson chrystal chandeliers to the beautiful hand wrought iron work throughout the bar, it is truly an experience for all the senses.....
You gotta go.......

“Don't miss out.....”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Don't miss out on a culinary treat. The brats and burgers all have a unique twist and are an absolute treat to your taste buds. I crave the southern burger on a weekly basis, along with the jambalaya!!!! You won't be disappointed.

“I love the Wurst Bar.”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This place is one of my favorites in Ypsi. I don't get there nearly as much as I would like, but when I do, I get the Lamb & Bison Wurst on a pretzel bun and the sweet tots. Those sweet tots are THE BEST. Nacho tots are good too. My husband always gets the Rattlesnake/Chorizo, which is good too. The rotating tap of Michigan beers always has at least 1 great beer that I've never heard of before. Defnitely, definitely check this place out.

“Very Very Unique”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for something out of the ordinary. Part of their menu focuses on home made Wursts, and they have such unusual wurst such as Rabbit & Fig or Rattlesnake & Chorizo with sides such as Kimchi-kraut, as other reviewers have mentioned.

I would say that they serve one of the most unusual fairs in the Metro Detroit area. As if their menus weren't unique enough, on the last Monday of the month they have unique world fairs. For example tonight they offered a 5 course Brazilian menu (accompanied by a light Brazilian music instrumental band). I have eaten all over the world and I've even eaten at the WB-50 molecular gastronomy icon in New York, and was still impressed by the Wurst Bar.

The atmosphere is so so, I would categorize the place as a gastro-pub, with hints of goth mixed in, based on the art on the wall and the tattoos and piercings the staff was sporting. It's somewhat in the student area of Ypsilanti, and 20-40 year olds are probably the targeted demographic. Parking is a little hard to find, it is on a one way street and there are one way streets all around. There's some metered parking not too far from here, and also there is a large parking lot just east and south (off Collage), about 1 block away, where you can pay with cash or credit.

“Home made sausage and Michigan beer - oh my!!!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

I tried the Wurst bar for the first time and I'll definitely be back. What was once Theo's bar on cross street has been remodeled to a nicely decorated bar/ restaurant. It's always good to see a new place open up and you can tell the owners have put a lot of effort in. I came here with some friends and family for dinner and I was very happy with their wide selection of Michigan beers on tap. The waiter was very knowledgeable regarding their food and beer menu. Service was friendly and fast. The Wurst Bar offers a wide range of unique sausages and burgers on the menu. All sausages are home made and best of all you can get tater tots as a side. Everyone was pleased with what they ordered and we'll be back. Can't wait to try one of their hamburgers.
