WAGS!!! A fun spot hidden a few steps down from market street. Happy hour features 2-4-1 on beer, wine, drinks. The beer IS cold. Order the basket of fries for the table...you're welcome! They are awesome and make you think you are at a fair. The burgers are well dressed. I had the special which was a cheeseburger sub. It... More

We found this to be just average after hearing that it was good. The roast beef sandwich was just ok, the potato soup was runny, not that good, but it did have plenty of bacon. The fries were good, I think expensive, even when subbing them for chips. We were very surprised that this is a bar, and they only... More

Just happened to walk around downtown Frederick. Wanted a drink and spotted their Happy Hour sign. We walked down the stairs. It is quite small, but there was enough room at the bar. HH was 2-4-1. Bartender Karen was extremely nice as were the customers. You can tell this is where the locals hang out. They were all very friendly... More

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.
