When I went to have a few drinks with friends we were seated outside and it was amazing! The atmosphere felt great and the service was amazing. Try the pizza at this place!

It's nice place but not really what I would call a must stop. There is nothing about this place that makes it unique. Bar is upstairs and I found in interior layout awkward and small. Drink selection OK. Service was just OK. Parking can be difficult. Not sure I would go out of my way to come back here. Just... More

Own brew with a delish assortment of beers and food selections. Make sure not to overlook their very own stouts and IPA combinations. Delish. Will be back again.

I've been to the WAB a few times and think it's just ok. The prices aren't bad and I really like their caprese. The beer is brewed there but it's not that great. It's not bad but I've definitely had better beer in my life. The atmosphere of the WAB is inviting but the service has tended to be slow... More

My wife and I used to go here a lot. The beer's good and the so were the burritos, giant southwest salad and sandwiches. The last time we went, the menu was all new, very small and the food was just okay. I used to recommend the WAB, I don't anymore. There are too many amazing places to eat in... More

My friend and I met here for beer and appetizers. The atmosphere is great, and the service is exceptional. We were here during the MSU/UM football game, and although the game was on 3 TVs, they are smaller and unobtrusive, so you could keep up with the game outside of the noise of a sports bar. We loved the chips... More

We visited here on a Sunday evening and our party of 9 had no wait for a table, which right away we thought was odd considering how large our party was! The menu is very small. Our Bowl Of Chips were not "tossed in a savory blend of spices", they were just chips with barely any spice on them. Without... More

My family was visiting from San Diego and we walked to the WAB. The food was great and my family loved the beer choices! We sat outside-it was a fun experience!!!
