We've been enjoying their beers for a time.  We were really looking forward to visiting the brewery.

The space is very cool.  We loved seeing the beer workings.

We had a few beers and really enjoyed them.  We did not order any food; hoping to do so on our next visit.

The bartender was super friendly and made us f

Try the Scottish Ale
Great brew, better than average food, staff pleasant but toward the slow side on service. Environment was upbeat, but still could converse wth a large group.

This is such a great joint! The beer is awesome and the food is fantastic! excellent service as well. the chicken nachos are the best! I also love the Mediterranean white pizza.

The beer dinner was intimate, the food exquisite. The chef, sous chef, brewmaster and manager made sure every detail was attended to. All I can add is WOW! What a great experience!

The nachos are very tasty and have a good choice of toppings. It comes with salsa which u might not need a whole lot bcoz the nachos are tasty itself. I, being vegetarian, went for a vegetarian pizza which actually is white sauce based with a main topping ingredient of artichoke and mushrooms. It's a must visit place for beer lover ... read more

AMAZING FOOD! We had their twist on the Cuban and it was so good! It was a cross between a Cuban and a Italian sub. The home brewed beer also did not disappoint. We would definitely visit again!

I love visiting Breweries in every city I visit and this was by far one of the best. The beer was great but the food was an awesome surprise. I go to Detroit at least 2 times a year and I will go back.

I eat here often, and have for years.  I realized I have never wrote a review.  But upon coming in here yesterday and finding they had did some remodeling and updates, I figured I would.
I rely on this place in Royal Oak as somewhere I never need to wait too long to be seated and I would say the food is always pretty consistent.

Great venue to grab a beer and watch a game!
Place has a plethora of TV’s and an outside patio complete with a separate bar. Menu and beer selection are tasty. If you are planning to become a repeat customer, their mug club is a great option!

This place was alright. Can’t include rotating selection of beers in the flights. Beer cheese soup was a bit watery. Pretzels and cheese were the best part of the meal. Shepherds pie had no carrots or peas in it so it was just meat and mashed potatoes. Server also seemed kind of annoyed and snappy 🤷🏼‍♀️ ... read more

I moved out of Michigan almost ten years ago, so was excited to have dinner with family in Royal Oak and see all that has changed. It was a Sunday night before Christmas week and the Royal Oak Brewery was surprisingly slow, there were maybe two other tables there and there was a Santa at the bar.

We went here on Friday night before going to the zoo lights. Beer was very good. Good variety of choices. Food was actually extremely good. I had the pork tenderloin special. My wife had the pork schnitzel. Both were excellent. Would definitely come here again.

Came here on a Friday night for dinner. Food was standard brewery food, with the exception of the shepherds pie which is very good. If you like shepherds pie, you'll love it here.

We also had the chicken Parmesan sandwich, the chicken was very small compared to the bun.

Service was kinda bad, I hate to say it.
Anthony B. via yelp.com - Nov 8, 2019
Beer and atmosphere was great! Shepherd's pie was decent. Waitress was inattentive and unfriendly. I'd go back.
Anthony Sciuto via google.com - Nov 3, 2019
It was OK. Off the beaten path a little from the main street and Washington. There are so many great restaurants in the area so it's pretty hard to compete. Food wasn't exactly hot when it came out, but overall not a bad experience. Can't say I'd return though unfortunately..

Okay!!!! Sooooo the service was trash at first  there were literally 5 people in the building (white), and we walked in, was lightly greeted and the completely ignored for a good 7-10minutes or so. So much to the tune of "Its Time To Go" but I didn't! I stayed.

The waitress told us there was a full bar, which is always funny

This place is awesome. Huge space, plenty of seating, some of the nicest wait staff I've ever seen. We tried a bunch of different beers and were impressed with all of them. They have incredible food deals on Monday nights (the Baker's Bread was amazing) - highly recommend!
Eric Prudent via google.com - Oct 8, 2019
We had the quesadillas, pepperoni wood fired pizza and beer cheese soup. As well as 6 different kinds of beer. You could tell everything was freshly made and cooked. So good! The atmosphere is cozy but also lively.

My rating is solely based on the beer selection and the quality of the standard IPA that I drank.

The selection of beers for breweries in the area was very minimal with only having a handful on tap. Each of the beers on t ... read more
