Met a group of female colleagues; we had a large corner booth. It is a bit noisy but no more than would be expected at this type of restaraunt. Everyone enjoyed their meal! And that says a lot for a group of women. The cocktails were great as well as a wonderful selection of beers. The waiter got our orders straight and all food came out together. He was VERY accomodating of our request for seperate checks as we were on expense accounts.

The Taphouse is usually my go-to spot for a great happy hour. The staff is very competent, the happy hour menu is solid--that are very decent vegetarian options, and there is a fantastic beer selection. I recently organized an after-work gathering for my colleagues and it was a very pleasant experience over all.

it was a really good place
it was a really good place to eat. We went Friday evening so it was very busy, but expected since it was Friday night. The host was trying to accommodate as best as she could since we had more people come than reservation, but we decided to squeeze into a booth and they didn't mind.

We have eaten at the Tap House
We have eaten at the Tap House before several of our shows at the 5th Avenue. We have never had a bad experience, or even a slow experience there. Every person involved with the restaurant seems to check on our table each time they go by, and this time, we had 4 different people drop something off for us. It feels like every person there is trying to make sure that you have a great time. We have tried more than 1/3 of the entire menu, and don't have a bad thing to say about any of it. And, with 160 beers on tap, how could that be bad.

We had one bad oyster in a batch of 2 dozen. The waitress apologized and a fresh oyster was there pronto. One fish dish was under done and again it has handled quickly. The remaining dishes were very good as well as the wine. Waitress was very good and helpful. We would go back on our next visit.

Great food and great beer selection!! Food was delicious!! I will definitely come here again if I come back to Seattle

plank salmon was terrific. and a flight /tasting of beers (or more) was just the ticket of introduction. and you could have a converstation across the table (low/controlled noise). highly recommended.

Tap House in Seattle is one
Tap House in Seattle is one of our go-to places before going to the 5th Avenue or ACT Theater. The menu selection has enough variety to meet most moods. We have always had good service. When we mention we are going to the theater, we have been served promptly without feeling rushed.On our last visit traffic getting to Seattle from the Eastside was horrible. We called to say we were running late, and a friendly voice said they would hold our table. We had our cocktails and meal served in under an hour, yet the meal felt leisurely- a good decompression before the show after fighting traffic.

It's a "must go to" restaurant when visiting Seattle! The food is absolutely fantastic. If you like beer it's the place to go.

This was a late lunch with a friend I don't often get to see. The restaurant was near empty when we arrived, but completely packed when we left 2.5 hours later. At no point did the wait staff become brusk or try to rush us out to turn over the table. The food was good and they even made iced coffee for us (which wasn't on the menu). The restaurant is located in the basement of a building. If you have mobility issues, there is actually an elevator, but we found that out too late and ended up taking the long staircase down. I do wish they had signage upstairs that led to the elevators.

Food was amazing!!!!
Server could have paid more attention to us. Worst service I've ever had.
That being said, I recommend food to any fellow foodie.

Food is better than ambiente
Enjoyed the Food and the marvellous Choice of Beer
But very loud and People from the Bar Standing Talking Too close to the table...

Great time on U-Dub Grad eve
My wife and I were looking for a casual place to take our UW grad before grad ceramony - Tap House was perfect....over 160 beers on tap for us to slurp down, good food, friendly and fun service.....and I could wear casual clothing to fity in with the younger crowd. Thanks Tap House! We had a great time

Best burger ever
Not one to go out to eat burgers a lot, but had the Morning After Burger and was very pleasantly surprised. It was really great tasting, a bit messy, but worth all the mess. The first beer I had was OK, but the temperature was on the warm side; not appetizing. The second beer was much better. Beer selection was overwhelming.

Great place to meet with a friend
First time, but not the last. Met my best friend from high school, in town on business, for beer and we stayed through appetizers, burgers, beer and a glass of Oban. No room for dessert, too full! The waitress was perfect and the food delicious. Bacon-wrapped
jalapeno was a bit crunchy, but the burgers were great. Beers on tap were cold and went so nicely with the meal. Ambience was perfect, my bud and I had a wonderful time. Thanks Taphouse!

Great selection of beer and food!
Highly recommended for a night on the town!

Our group loved it
Ten of us met at Tap House Grill for a pre-cruise dinner. Food was great, service was excellent.
We all agreed to try this restaurant again

Delightfully guilty as charged!
As with all things in life, the criticisms of this restaurant must be taken in context. Yes, it's loud, dark, subterranean, and and not well-suited for a quiet, romantic conversation. If you want great food, attentive service, and the best on-tap beer selection in Seattle, this is your place. Likewise, if you like a busy, animated atmosphere in a packed restaurant with lots of happy people, you've arrived. At first glance, it doesn't strike you as a place reservations would be accepted, but they do so gladly, and accommodate your arrival immediately. The food selection is varied and eclectic, with everything from burgers to seasonal halibut prepared perfectly. For us it was a great experience!

Great food with a million beers
Had a reservation. Seated immediately at reservation time. Great food.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service for my group of 15. We were waited on and served right away and the food came out fast. Everything was delicious.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
All that beer on tap...
We had a great time! The beverages were lovely and the food was some of the best "bar" food I had ever had. Must return!
8/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a good time
The wheelchair-accessible entrance is via the parking garage elevators, entrance on 6th between Pine & Pike. Food was good and plentiful, from French dip to halibut to beef stew. Only complaint I heard was shrimp pasta: tiny shrimp. Cheerful, patient service for our group of 9.

Fun place with friends
Went here w colleagues while visiting Seattle. Food was pretty good. Atmosphere was fun. I had salad w chicken which was ok. The ingredients were delicious; the flavored they used were off to me. Appetizers - calamari, shrimp, wings- were very good. Service was very good.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great find
Fabulous selection of tap beers. Loved the ability to have beer sampler platters so we could try different selections. Service was attentive and very enjoyable. Food offered something for everyone. Barbequed lamb shank was delicious. Meat so tender, it literally was falling off the bone. We had a great time!

Food was very good for dinner.
Food was very good for dinner. The place is very large, with lots of room for people to move around in and not feel constrained or hemmed in. Great selection of beer! My only complaint is that it takes a while to have your drinks from the bar if you are sitting at a table. It was several minutes from the time you placed your order with a server until the bartender filled it. Then, the server would collect the drinks and begin delivery to his section of tables. My second beer took 15 minutes from giving it to the server to him delivering it to me. That is a long time in the middle of your dinner to be without a drink.

Banquet Room and service excellent!
We rented the banquet room with a pool table. It was fantastic and the service was wonderful. I really appreciate the accomodation at such short notice and we got personal attention and coordination from the manager. Everyone loved the food and the sushi was excellent. Will definitely rent again for another occation.

Always great at the tap house!
We had an excellent dinner and were really happy we reserved a spot as it was very busy. Happy hour was awesome, the drinks were great and the crab Mac and cheese was phenomonal! We've been to the tap house before and it's always very good! I would highly recommend it especially if you like beer!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, a little loud
Had the porter cheddar burger, gal had the halibut. Both were excellent. And there's a beer for every palate here. Recommend.

160 taps, great food and service
We've only been there twice, but the Tap House is our Seattle fav. This last visit the food was even better than before and we had the best waitress you could ask for. 160 beers on tap - where else can you find that?
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a late dinner with some business colleagues. Menu has something for everyone. Our waiter was cool and very knowledgeable about the local beers which they have a huge selection of.

Evening get together at Tap House
For an after-work gathering of seven, the location of the Tap House is great. They have one of the most extensive selections of beer on tap in Seattle, but our group went there for the quality of the food. Try the fiery stuffed jalepenos for an appetizer. Wait staff were attentive to our needs but we didn't feel rushed. Accommodations are spacious - they have large booths and cushioned corners that can accommodate groups of 7-12. There's a room with pool tables too. And reservations can be made on line. This is one of the best venues for large get-togethers in downtown Seattle.

Great beer list
Food was great but the key was the extensive beer list. They were all fantastic!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good value for the $$--food was good, beer list was excellent.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall, very good
My wife and I are new to Seattle and try out a different restaurant every Friday night. Great beer selection and good service, I would've liked something with a little more intimacy. Lots of people and good energy if that's what you're looking for.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good beer great food
I could have guessed with such a large collection of beers on tap that my every desire in that regard could be met. My surprise was how good the food was! Crab bisque is a must, hangover burger will exceed your expectations, calimari and spinach dip delicious, and practically everything else was good too. I ate/drank there two times while in Seattle. The first time by myself and then brought a party of 12 back later in the week. This is not a quiet talk kind of place but we shared a lot of great conversations and laughs among us.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Group Gathering Place
I went here with a group of friends from school. It had a diverse modern American menu that met everyone's needs. The service was great and the food was decent. Furthermore, the drink offerings were great. I would recommend it for group gatherings. Nothing about the restaurant blew my mind but I enjoyed the whole experience and would certainly go again.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great meal before theatre
This was our first time at Taphouse, what an awesome selection of beers! The fish and chips was excellent as were the fish tacos. The desert bites sampler was a wonderful variety for us.
We'll be back!

Fun Downtown Restaurant
We ate here while downtown and they seated us right away bc I had a reservation. Menu was interesting and they had lunch specials. I had lobster Mac and cheese which I liked. I thought portions were very small and I'm a small woman. Service was good. Noisy bc filled with people and the game was on.
