Hated the cheese soup. Tasted very yeasty and bland. The calamari was good. I imagine it would be better hot. The flavor was very good, but because it was cold it was gummy.

Pregame dinner
Came before a Redwings game with our friends who visit often since they are members is the mug club. Ambiance was nice. The restaurant is open with tables and chairs, no booths. They both enjoyed their food. We shared a happy hour appetizer since we had eaten earlier. Definitely will be back to eat on our next visit.

We randomly stumbled upon there frost fest this past weekend. We had a great time out on the patio with folks who obviously knew each other, but we're super friendly and inclusive to us! A great atmosphere with some tasty brews.

I love that no matter how busy they are, we always seem to get in within 10-20 minutes.  Service is quick, food is reliable and obviously, their beer selection is excellent.  It is almost the same it seems as DBC but not as busy and impossible to get a table. PERFECT for a 4-5pm dinner... read more

This was a nice place to go for dinner and beers on a Thursday night. The food was all great and the beer was delicious. There is a good TV set up for watching games, and we had great service. Will definitely go back!

Great food, average beer. Server was nice and attentive. Unfortunately they were busy so they couldn't give flights in the paddles and instead gave them in taster glasses. Overall I'm giving it a 3 because it's a brewery and the beer isn't very good. But it's an amazing place to hang out, and the atmosphere is awesome for friends.

Good Pub Food and Comfortable Setting
We always enjoy lunch or dinner at ROB. Relaxing and comfortable setting, friendly and prompt service with very good pub food. One of our favorites.
Mark H via tripadvisor.com - Jan 7, 2017
Good but a tad overpriced
Everything I've ever eaten here has been really really good. Somethings I think are pricey, especially for lunch. For example, I don't think a grilled cheese and cup of soup is worth $17, although I do admit the meal is one of my favorites.

My husband and I have been going to this brewery at least three times a month (once a week if we can) since we moved to Royal Oak about 7 years ago.

I really enjoyed my visit, they changed the menu, so the item I normally order was no longer offered. The waitress was very patient with me as I took a little longer to decide what I wanted. She was great and the food choice was great as well.

Your average brewery
The Royal Oak Brewery is an OK spot for drinks and food in downtown Royal Oak. I stopped in with some friends celebrating a bachelor party, and we were taken care of very well by the staff. The beers weren't too bad, our only complaints were the portion sizes. We ordered a few appetizers to go with the drinks, but they were far too s... read more

Good food but we are not impressed with the new menu. We both ordered the Santa Fe Chicken Salad that was delicious but it was quite small.  If we did not order the yummy Brewers bread, we would have left hungry.

Brews and comfort food
I have eaten at this restaurant several times in the past, but on my last visit I was looking for carryout. I ordered a pint of the craft wheat beer and settled in for a wait. Just as i finished the beer, the Shepherds Pie and Brewers bread arrived. Too bad, the beer was really good. By the way the food was excellent, too.

Love this place. It's always awesome. The staff really knows their stuff. The food is really good - if priced just slightly high for bar food, the flavor makes up for it. And Of Course, the rotating taps are great for trying new things.
