American Tap Room - Bethesda
Great placeI took my family here for Mother's Day dinner this year, and, after having a very hard time finding a place that wasn't totally booked or needed my credit card to make a reservation I settled on American Tap Room. Food was great, Mom was impressed, and we sat in these big fancy chairs...like the ones the put in waiting rooms sometimes, or really nice offices. It was perfect, because after we ate we sat and chatted a while and didn't feel like our backs were going to die. Two thumbs up on those chairs!! (in full disclosure, though, not every table has them, call ahead and request!!)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find!I'd heard good things about the American Tap Room many times, but never went there! However, after experiencing it for myself, I'm now a big fan! It was fantastic! My date and I really enjoyed ourselves and plan to go back there very soon!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Down Town Bethesda SpotGreat salad and seafood. Had the Salmon and it was very good. I have also had the ribs and they were nice as well. We have gone many times.
A bit noisy in the room to the left and near the bar. Room to the right is much quieter.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed the food andReally enjoyed the food and dessert, had a great waitress.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBllie Joe was very nice.

The ambiance was nice and the seats were very comfy! I heard about this place from a blog and they were rated very high for their brunch. They recently changed their menu and we wanted to try an item off of their old menu that was online. They were very accommodating and let us order the roasted mushroom & goat cheese omelet which was absolutely delicious. I hope they bring the omelet back! Also, highly suggest ordering their powdered sugar donuts! Will definitely be going back again!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall but diverse menu. MenuSmall but diverse menu. Menu changes seasonally but seems to keep old favorites. We tried the swordfish (new to the menu that evening) and found it very fresh and well-prepared. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Great bar for small groups to get together and share appetizers and drinks.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
