fabulous beer stinky spot... – My first time at the WAB. My husband and I met another couple there. I had the Rasberry Blonde...best beer I have ever had...you must try it. We sat upstairs...it was kinda smelly my husband described it as a mix between a frat house and cleaning supplies. So it didnt smell that great ..but the beer was good . I had a chicken avacado dish..very tasty. Though my husband had a burger...not so good..he got sick the next day. Or waitress was a dumbo. she charged our friends bill to us, as well as ours. Over all beer is good..everything else..not so hot.

Good Spot to Hang Out – The WAB is an old standby in Ferndale, and with good reason. They have (mostly) good food and a really relaxed, inviting atmosphere, although it can get a little loud and crowded so it's not a place for an intimate chat. The jukebox is a treat, and the quesadillas, salads, and tacos are good. For anything more complex, another restaurant might be a better bet. As far as drinks go, the bartenders (who are also friendly) pour 'em strong, but the beer is sometimes disappointing. It's not bad, just not the "wow, that's amazing!" quality you would expect from a small brewery. Overall, definitely recommended.

Tasted like garbage – I don't know why but it tasted like garbage. Almost like someone wiped their butt with it. Anyways I'm FLASH ME on xceedspeed DOT com and I will never eat there again. Beer tasted like urine.

Great beer, great setting – Excellent beers and great grub make this one of my favorite destinations on any given night. Low-key and laid-back, the WAB serves up a smooth raspberry blonde brew and the quesadillas are great, too. Always a comfortable, dim atmosphere; great for catching up with friends.

Good Beer bad food – I have been to the WAB three times the service is okay nothing to call that great just basic. The food is bad I mean so bad if you go keep in mind to eat first or go some where else after the good beer.....

Amazing beer and great atmosphere – The WAB is my favorite bar in the Detroit area. They're beers are great. I suggest the Custom Blonde. There's nothing else like it. Perfect flavor. Really crisp and refreshing. The staff is great and really friendly. The bartender Stevie is really cool. Definitely try to get to know him. And check out his band's album in the juke box. The have a great music selection. The food is really good, too. A wide range of options on the menu from: sandwiches, salads, flat bread pizza, etc. The atmosphere is really cool with all the big windows and the wood floors and booths. I really recommend this place.

Would appear they bribed the D.D.A. – On the wwwnopsdtax.c--m website I read quite plainly that those members of the D.D.A. who have given them a large chunk of money will now actually see a decrease in their taxes if the D.D.A. is able to pass the PSD tax.

What a suprise.

As a store owner on Woodward nearby, as a long-time Ferndale resident, I'm just appalled that the owner of the Woodward Avenue Brewery would stoop to this level, I am so dispointed in the W.A.B., we ourselves might have to close or shop and we certainly won't have money to frequent W.A.B.

Shame on you!

The WAB is what hangout should be like. – When a gay guy prefers to goto the W.A.B. instead of the local gay hangout then I think that says something about the atmosphere and service at this establishment. I have lived in the area for about 5 yrs now and the W.A.B. is the place I goto when I want a great beer, decent food and a place where I can talk with my buds. The staff rocks and has their finger on the pulse of Detroit. If you're lucky you'll catch one of local bands plucking away in the upstairs bar. Or just people watching out on the patio. I totally recommend the W.A.B. if you want to have a fresh brewed beer with out all the commercialism that is in all of the other bars out there. Hats off to ya!!

Enjoy the summer months in the outdoor seating section! – Very attentive wait staff on our last visit. Probably visit 10 or so times per year. This place is high on our list now that summer is here--great outdoor seating along Woodward--some of it is covered, the rest is open. Started with drinks and pretzel appetizer. Told waitress we wanted to wait on dinner. Not hurried at all. Ordered chicken and avocado quesadilla and salad to split. Avocado slices in quesadilla were hard--not yet ripe. Told waitress and she happily swapped for another quesadilla--no challenge or resistance to our request. Quite pleased with this visit. Plan to return at least a few more times while the warmer weather is here.
