A word from American Tap Room
This is American Regional Cuisine at its classic, pub-inspired best. The food is fun and what we like to call “approachable”. You’ll also enjoy some twists on the classics with taste-inspired ideas like our Dirty Caesar Salad and Greek Turkey Burger. At the American Tap Room we believe in using local ingredients as much as possible and, yes, everything we serve goes well with beer.

Ranging from weekend brunch, to a casual lunch outing or an after-work gathering in our bar, each dining experience is uniquely enjoyable.

Enjoy your time with us on our outdoor patio, inside by the fireplace, or by booking a private event.

    Good bar scene and great food. Outdoor dining in march is always exceptional. The view outdoors is not the greatest (big building across the street) but the people watching is good.. Service was excellent, Manager pitches in during rush, food was very good and loved that brownie/canilla ice cream desert.

    Dined on 3/5/2009
    Food was very marginal. Service was (barely) average. Very below-average value-to-price proposition. All-in, not a place I would clamor to return to nor one that I would recommend. With all the other Reston Town Center options available, I do not see a long "shelf life" for this establishment. I am out a lot, exactly the type of customer a restaurant wants; I was very, very disappointed. Thanks.

    Simple menu with enough diversity to satisfy. Food is OK plus, service a bit young and intrusive, remake of interior from previous owners is handsome and more open -- and less sedate. I won't hurry back.

    Service staff was enthusiastic - hostess was friendly on arrival and followed up with me by name later at bar; bar staff were very engaged and introduced themselves by name. Kitchen and manager were able to modify my food order and it came our perfectly. First time to The American Tap room in Reston Town Center and I will use it again and recommend it to friends and colleagues with confidence.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 1/24/2009
    I was fairly disappointed in our experience this past Saturday night, January 24, at the Tap Room. The ambiance was nice - we had a great booth right in front of the fireplace - and I had high expectations for the dinner. However, the service was slow and the menu was just OK. From the look of the restaurant, I expected to find a nice dinner menu, but it was mainly filled with burgers and sandwiches, and overpriced fish/steak dishes. I should have looked more closely at the menu before going. Overall, we weren't impressed and would be more likely to try other restaurants at Reston Town Center before going back here again.

    Went for lunch over the holiday. There were not many people dining while we were there so the noise level was low. Food and service were good, not outstanding. Prices were reasonable. Interior looks much better since the new owners redid the place.

    The food was decent but the service was really rushed so your sitting there with your entree and your appetizer feeling like they just want to turn over your table. This pretty much means I will NEVER go back there. There is nothing worse than being rushed through dinner when all you want to do is relax and enjoy the company your with. Oh and eating cold food because they brought everything out so fast it sits and gets cold.

    I made reservations for myself and five friends from out of town. We arrived and our table was waiting. My friend ordered a fairly new beer and the waitress made a face and stated that they didn't carry that beer. She didn't have a very good attitude overall so we just drank our first round of drinks and left.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/17/2008
    We went there for the first time for my husband's birthday. When I made the reservation, I had stated that this was a special occassion and would appreciate any services that American Tap Room would provide for his birthday- even as little as a Happy Birthday from the host, server, etc. He received nothing. He was really looking forward to this dinner and American Tap Room completely forgot or just didn't care. Additionally, we didn't have a server for our table. No one was assigned to our table so we had about 3-4 different people provide service to us, including the hostess. They were all very nice but no one knew who our server was so we kept flagging different wait staff. Thank you.
