This restaurant is a real
This restaurant is a real gem in an area full of restaurants. We had the specials (Irish theme since it was the day before St. Patrick's day) and the corned beef was the best I've ever had. But, start with the mussels for a true treat. They were fantastic. We will definitely return and take our friends with us.

I had the bass again, but
I had the bass again, but the taste was more on the maple syrup side but still was good just more caramelized. The rest of the family enjoyed their meal. The big comfy chairs need to go - sank down too far from the table.

Not recommended for a romance
I had a class which happened to fall on the date of our anniversary. My husband selected this restaurant as the location to celebrate our special day. Not knowing any of the local establishments he chose this restaurant. had to wait 30 minutes for a table even with a reservation.service was very good ,the food was great as well although both our steaks were a bit UNDER COOKED. We declined dessert as the entrees and appetizer were filling for us, noise level was the chief downfall for us. Restaurant was quite loud and difficult to have a nice conversation or romantic dinner, it was a Saturday night and Final Four weekend which may have added to the busyness, I really don't know.

A bit loud. Cool, lighted menus! Food was good. Service average. When I made the res through Open Table, I noted under special instructions that we were celebrating a 15 y.o.'s birthday. I guess I expected at least a "happy birthday".

Mother's Day Brunch
We stopped in to the Reston ATR for Mother's Day Brunch. The service was great. It seemed like we were given preferential treatment for seating because we had made a reservation, which I appreciated, and our table was secluded from the others, which made conversation easier. The brunch buffet was delicious! Great selection: salads, made-to-order omelets, french toast, chicken & waffles, prime rib, etc. There were small portions set out so the food was constantly refreshed, which doesn't always happen at a buffet. My dad wasn't feeling well and the waiter offered for him to check out the buffet and did not charge him for the couple of pieces of bread and bits of fruit that he ate off of the buffet. Great experience!

Not easy to get to, especially
Not easy to get to, especially for out-of-towners, parking was a challenge, but once there, both food & service made it worthwhile. Will revisit.

First time eating at AM Tap. Food was awesome. Although, I wouldnt recommend going with a baby since it was packed. Nevertheless, it was a good dinning experience!!!!

Presentation was excellant. Two of my co-workers and I went for lunch. The inside has a very nice (almost like an executive type feel to it) with the tall backed chairs in the bar area. The lunch menu is a great deal. I would recommend this again and look forward to returning soon.

Great place for a client lunch. Our demands were out of the ordinary but our server was great about the changes.

The food was great, but not amazing. We had crab cakes, a burger, and a bavarian pretzel. The crab cake was good, but it wasn't the best I'd ever had. It was more crab than cake though, which was good! The pickles on the burger were amazing! The bavarian soft pretzel was fantastic! However, the horseradish sauce that came with the pretzel was a bit too strong, even for me--a horseradish lover! We did love the cheddar ale sauce though--top notch! The ambiance of the restaurant was the best part and is why I would definitely come back to this restaurant. We were seated right next to a very modern looking fireplace, which was just beautiful. The lights were also very low (with lighted menus), which made for a romantic evening. Bar was full!

We had reservations and were promptly seated and greeted. The service was excellent and the food was deliciously prepared and served timely. Absolutely love and recommend their warm pretzels.

Brunch was wonderful- good selection and options. Loved the chopped salad and pesto salmon. $5 Bellini's were a delight! Great outdoor seating and friendly service!

This was my first time at American Tap Room and it was picked by the friend I was having lunch with as it is right across from his office. I was looking for something relatively healthy for lunch and ordered the swordfish sandwich. The sandwiches are served with fries but the server asked if I wanted to substitute any of the sides for the fries without me even asking. I substituted the sautéed spinach and both the sandwich and the spinach were excellent. It is very easy to overcook swordfish but this came out perfectly cooked and still moist. The lunch crowd seemed to be mostly professionals that work in the area and the atmosphere was quiet enough that you could carry on a conversation. Definitely an enjoyable lunch and good service.

No Grill--No Problem!
We had a reservation, so we received a phone call to let us know the grill was broken and they would be offering a limited menu. We decided to go anyway, and it was a great decision. The meals we ordered were all delicious. Drinks were also good and well-prepared. Desserts were divine! Our server was very polite and attentive. It was a great evening all around.

Thank you kindly
My wife and I were asked by my older daughter's fiancee's parents to meet for for brunch, and would we suggest a place... Having no idea locally, and not desiring an IHOP sort of thing, we searched online, and found the ATR, whose menu looked nice.... We went, along with our younger daughter, and the fiancee's sister and husband. Your menu had something for everyone, and everything was delicious - as was the service, the atmosphere, and the quality of the bloody marys. We had a terrific time, and will be back again, believe me. And your establishment will be recommended to our friends. Thanks again.

Enjoy the bar scene or relax near the stone fireplace. Neat high back chairs make you feel extremely important as you dine. Great evening with family and friends during Labor Day weekend. Highly recommend!

Always wonderful Brunch!
We come to Tap Room primarily for brunch because we live in Reston and the food is always good, sometimes there's not enough food but when you ask for something as soon as its replaced on the buffet a wait staff will come and advise so that's helpful.
There's just enough variety for it to still be ample

Went for Sunday brunch with
Went for Sunday brunch with a couple of friends, and was pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, the service was very good, and the restaurant looked great. (It had been several years since I had visited.) The menu wasn't very extensive, but there was something for everyone, and we were all happy with our meals. (Two brunch buffets and one Greek burger.) The only thing I would have changed would have been maple syrup with the waffles (instead of pancake syrup). We will most likely be dining here again.
