Great food. Good atmoshpere
We went here for a Father's Day dinner. Was too warm outside to sit in their beer garten but would be a great place to hang out. The food was great and the beers I had were delicious.

This was a first time visit. The service was great and the food came out plentiful and hot. Royal Oak Brewery gets a revisit. Our hostess, Laurie, was patient and accommodating. If you stop in to sample the cuisine, ask to be seat in Laurie's section and let her know you're from Murray-Wright.

I came here for dinner with a group of six adults and two kids on a Friday night.  Surprisingly we only had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated instead of the 30 minutes they quoted us.  Inside is what you would expect from a brewery decorated with beer tanks and barrels.  I didn't get a good look at the bar but it seemed like it w ... read more

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.

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 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.
