    We were delayed because of road construction right outside the Tap House, I called to let them know and they held our table for us and made sure we had our food quickly since we needed to make show at the Paramount. Not a large menu for the food but a lot of unique dishes and the price was very reasonable. If you love beer this is a must stop.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    Fish tacos my wife had were quite good. Halibut I had was tasteless, heavily breaded and smothered in a bland white sauce. We were stuck in a side table in the back room next to a group of about twenty young people even though there appeared to be tables open in the main room. My wife isn't a big eater, so I ate one of her fish tacos and not most of my dinner. Service was good and I ended up getting comped for the halibut without asking. Next time will reserve earlier to get in at Purple Cafe or some other place with better food and ambiance.

    I was traveling on business with colleagues and we were looking for a good restaurant with great food and a wide choice of local brews. Tap House definitely had the beer selection. The food was very average though. Certainly wasn't offended however. I'd just rate it pretty average. With the choices in downtown Seattle, I'm not sure I'd return to this one unless I was seeking a casual evening.

    Their name is the Taphouse, and it is not a tap dancing bar, so you should already know what it is before you get there. 160 beers on tap. Nuff said. I can't ever remember being treated as nicely anywhere. This staff was friendly and helpful from the second we walked in. Even at 6pm on a Saturday. Food portions were bigger than expected, and prices were very good.

    Taphouse Seattle was the first food/bar experience we had in Seattle and it was awesome! Although it was fairly busy, our group of 7 was able to carry on a decent conversation without shouting, given the cleverly designed layout of the restaurant. The food was delicious, the service was awesome and the beer selection was extensive! Wins all around!

    Tell your server what beer you normally like, and he/she can serve you a sampler of four 6-ounce glasses of tastes in the same family from small or local breweries. They pour something like 170 different beers, the list always in flux. Food is good, prices moderate, service outstanding. It's a cavernous place, hidden below street level, separate nooks and crannies for pool tables, lots of sports on TV everywhere. We will return.

Waitress said a large group that had just walked in was distracting the bartender. Stupid girl, come up with a better excuse!!!! Food was ok but overpriced and just wasn't impressed.

    We had a wonderful time here. The beer selection was very extensive, and they even had hard alcohol & wine too. We were seated promptly at a great big table for 20. Our server, came over fairly quickly to get our drink order and drinks came out fast as well as re-fills throughout the night. She seemed very knowledgable about the beer and food menu, however many of us were taken back by her negative attitude. I'm a server too, and would have completely understood if something happened that was out of her control, but rolling her eyes when I ask for a re-fill of soda is not okay (and others told me similar examples). Overall it was great, just wish our server had left her attitude at the door and put a smile on instead.

    We booked a 6:30pm reservation for 14 people with OpenTable, we got there early (6pm)and let them know we were all here, and they said no problem. But - they actually could not accomodate 14 and made us wait until after 7pm before we were seated because they didnt have any tables avaliable together. I dont know why they let us book a reservation for that many people if they could not honor it! We would have been better off going to a "no reservations" restaurant and putting our name on a list.

    My buddy wanted to go here due to the very large selection of local beers on tap. It goes without saying but their establishment is aptly named. All of the beer we had was EXCELLENT but, unfortunately, we both were rather disappointed with our orders. The "BEEF AND GUINNESS STEW" had a savory sauce and tender veggies but the large chunks of lean beef were rather dry and tough to chew. (I will have you know that "tough to chew" is a hard verdict (no pun intended) for this life-long beef eater). Perhaps it was an off-night? Perhaps not. Without stealing by buddies critique he was NOT satisfied with his order either. Did I mention they had great beer?

    This place touts many beers on tap, which they have and many are very tasty. A couple things that you don't really get informed on however is how much the prices vary from beer to beer or if you order a specific kind it comes in a smaller glass. All things that the waiter or waitress should run through when they ask you if you want a beer as you are seated. Our group had 5 different selections from the menue that weren't availble. Waitress finally brought a list of kegs they were out of which was over 20, and then a updated list of the rotator taps, funny thing was is that there were beers on both the "out of" list and the "current" list. One of the groups ordered their burger well and it came raw, outside of that the food is ok.

    The BankRoll sushi was very nice, the crisp tempura a just-right contrast to the soft rice and avocado textures and nicely presented; the rest of the meal, enjoyable. The menu is standard high end pub fare, if not quite up to the standards set by competitors nearby, but they can't match the handle count (160). Note to establishment: I asked a question and the wait person said she would ask the barkeeper. Instead of a recommendation she brought me a beer---that was presumptuous! Even though it was well matched to the question, it was a beer I was already familiar with. Inexperience? I hope so.
