    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    I was not impressed with the staffs ability to assist, I had made notes that this reservation was for a special occasion. The guests were to be there first then we were to arrive to our friends already being there. My friends asked to be sat, however the staff at Tap house declined to seat them prior to the entire party being there. I had called earlier to confirm my reservations and the plan, they said it wouldn't be a problem. We arrived with our friends sitting in the lobby, I was highly upset. When I told the hostess this was suppose to be a surprise, she said for who I pointed at the guest of honor who arrived with me and she says "oh sorry... SURPRISE". She said she would send her manager over, who never came. I will not return.

    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.

    Great beer list (160 beers on tap), not too noisy for table conversation, and good wait staff. Food was meh, though. I ordered the Crab Macaroni & Cheese - it was too salty. My mates had a Caesar salad and Spicy Shrimp Pasta. They each said it was just so-so: Palatable, but not great. The beers were very good, though. I tried one that I didn't like and the server cheerfully replaced it with an alternate.

    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.

    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!

    We had a fabulous dining experience at the Tap House: the sampler beers were great, the food came out very quickly, and it was plentiful and delicious! Our server, however, was a different story. After a long wait, she finally came over. We basically only saw her again when she took our food order and gave us the bill. We did not tip very generously, which is unfortunate, because everything but her service was fabulous. We will go again, but hope that we see better table service next time.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    We came specifically for the largest beer selection in town - and Tap House delivered that plus well-made, tasty, better-than average versions of standard pub food. The place was extremely noisy, with many blank walls making it feel like we'd been thrown in a pit with all these other hungry people. Overall, the atmosphere didn't match the food quality. I plan to try the Tap House in Bellevue, which should have all the good Seattle has and a better atmosphere.

    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.

    Standard food - not exceptional but not awful, very run-of-the-mill. It was very warm down there in the bowels of the earth (it's a subterranean space), and very loud. The overall experience was like that of an Applebee's, but without the kitsch and with a zillion beers on tap. Our server was excellent - a real joy. He was definitely the highlight of our visit. I wouldn't personally choose to visit again, but if I were invited to a birthday party there or something I'd go.

    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.
