- Good food, horrible quantitycalamari2Dined on 7/3/2014good meal and fun restaurant. However, I ordered steak fajitas and was given 5 smalls strips of steak!!! Never have had less steak with a fajita.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food, horrible serviceSillyLionFanDined on 6/17/2014I have dined ay Tap 4 times. The food is always good but the service gets worse each time I am there. Not sure how they have not managed to get better over time. I enjoy going there but after this last visit, I am not sure I will return. We waited over 5 minutes to see a server, over 10 minutes for drinks and then one was wrong, another 10 minutes to order and then nearly 45 minutes for food and they were not busy at all. Hostess was rude too. We talked to the manager and he was of no help. It's time to hire better servers or put more time into training them.Special Features:

- Love it hereOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/19/2014We frequent here. The food is really good and they help accommodate you no matter your requests. They have tv's everywhere and I like that they take reservations.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 5/19/2014Our server was wonderful and very accommodating to our toddler son.Special Features:
- Food has been going downhill.kruby377Dined on 4/22/2014I have been here enough to have tried nearly everything on the menu. However, as of late the quality of the cooked food has significantly dropped. I have been served nearly raw hamburgers and bad corned beef. However, when the staff is notified that something is not right, they make it right for you. I suggest going during dinner hours, the chef's seem to have a better game at night.Special Features:
- First time here.sandyDined on 4/1/2014We were at the casino, and wanted something to eat. I had all kinds of food to choose from. I had a burger and fries. My friend had a half sandwich and chili. They were both very good. We would go backSpecial Features:
- Lunch with FriendsTessieDined on 3/21/2014We recently celebrated a friends birthday at TAPS. This is a great place for a group to meet. The service was outstanding.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday LunchChicagoVIPDined on 2/23/2014We were celebrating my Birthday with a lunch at TAP for 5 of us. The food was good, beer was cold, service could have been better. Our server was efficient, but no smiles or refills on our water or ice tea, just checked it we wanted more beer. Service is very important to the whole experience of going out to eat.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- MGM! Where I love to eat.BabyTVIPDined on 2/19/2014Never am I ever disappointed in the food. The choices are good. One thing to know is The spice style of your choice. I cannot handle anything that is even mildly hot. So I have to be careful of what I order. Well, not thinking, we ordered the salsa and chips as an appetizer. needless to say, I couldn't eat the salsa due to it being a bit more than mild. The waitress noticed that we did not eat it and asked if everything was ok. When I shared that it was too spicy she apologized and removed it from our bill. That was unexpected but well appreciated. The French onion soup was excellent as was the Michigan beer battered fish and chips. A job well done.Special Features:
- Good food great serviceSullyDined on 2/18/2014Fried mac and cheese is to die for, and the hamburgers and pizza are good if your less adventuresome. The service is A-One and the best reason for going.Special Features:
- Excellent food, not just forbhautamaDined on 2/16/2014Excellent food, not just for a sports bar, but for any restaurant. The boneless BBQ rib sandwich was just amazing. Fries weren't fried fresh just for us, but that's about as much as I can possibly nit-pick. Very solid meal and fine service.Special Features:
- Outstanding sports barSargeUSMCDined on 2/4/2014Loved the size of it. Lots of room to move, unlike most sports bars. The short rib chili was outstanding.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- boys night out before active dutyHiggs7BosonDined on 1/18/2014We all had a great time and the service was excellent. Our waitress was especially nice and friendly. My military friend had to return to active duty the next day and so everything worked out terrific. When he returns back to Michigan he wants to take his whole family to visit TAP. The ambiance is excellent and well designed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Love this place!kruby377Dined on 1/12/2014I have been here a ton! I have not really had any complaints about the food, it is always tasty. My favorite by far is the Baconfest sandwich! Mouthwateringly delicious!!! They have an excellent local beer selection on tap and bottle!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great for Sports, not for foodStanDined on 12/22/2013Tap is a great place for a few beers/drinks and watching the game. The food is OK. It's typical bar fare, but done exceptionally average. Alot of beer/drink selections and flat screens everywhere.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pre Detroit Red Wings game mealSeasonedtrvlrDined on 11/27/2013In search of someplace new to eat before the Wings game, we headed over here. While there is no shuttle between MGM and JLA, cabs are easily available at the main door. Getting back was NOT as easy. Cabs were hard to find at JLA due to road closures for the upcoming Turkey Trot. (found a cab outside Cobo) p FOOD: great selection, and very good. Wife had Michigan beer battered fish while I had fish tacos- both were very good SERVICE: really good, but not exceptional. Craft beer lineup: one of the reasons I wanted to go here. They had a decent lineup, but not overlly impressive considering how much they advertise it.Special Features:
- Our waitress Karen was veryNightDined on 11/1/2013Our waitress Karen was very accommodating. Even though we had a couple of people arrive late, she was very understanding.Special Features:
- Food & Brew always a great match upJABCDined on 10/20/2013I've eaten here a couple of times and always enjoyed it. What impressed me most this time was that my kids ordered off the kids menu and they received real chicken tenders, meaning they were tenderloins battered and cooked on site FRESH! Not something that was frozen tossed in the fryer. That alone impressed me enough to recommend Tap to families in addition to a fun couples night out. Job well done MGM Grand!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

We had a great waiter Andrew who was very pleasant and knew the menu well when we asked questions..... We would definitely go back again and let others know.Special Features:
- Something for everyoneDebyRoxaneDined on 10/8/2013Took a friend here for a birthday lunch. The food was great and although they didn't have candles the birthday dessert was great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Afternoon DelightKarenDined on 10/8/2013Met with in-laws for lunch. Service was quick. Food was great!! Ambiance was very relaxing. You could hear the machines in the casino humming. Might make this a monthly visit.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- TAP - GREAT PLACE FOR LUNCH!MaxReboDined on 9/16/2013Reserved a table for 8 at the busy time (Noon). The table was ready and waiting for us at noon. Wait staff was very good. Food was excellent!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tap lives up to its name!TravelGirlVIPDined on 9/15/2013For a sports bar in a casino the food at Tap is really good. Our server was delightful and did a great job considering we had eight people at our table. She kept track of what everyonce got and even broke out the checks for us - - food was delivered in shifts but that really wasn't her fault - she was cheerful, helpful and full of suggestions. Food was typical bar food but quality ingredients had been used and there was real attention to detail. Burgers were prepared as ordered and the nachos were covered in spicy ground beef, salsa and cheese. There wasn't a complaint from anyone and we all enjoyed the food. I can especially recommend the onion rings and the unique fried macaroni and cheese. Very good!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- good burgers and tons of beersRuppsDined on 8/27/2013had a Burger that was cooked perfect and how can you go wrong with the beer selection..Liked the sampler opportunity. Will be backSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Just want to get outOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/25/2013The food is good. The service is great. All the Tv screens with all the sports is great if you are sport fan. I love the beer sampler. Great price on Fri night.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great TimeDrewDined on 6/11/2013MGM Tap Sports Grill is a great place for casual dining. We took my son there for his 21st birthday. He drank his first beer from an inexpensive 4 beer sampler pack. Looks like he will not be a beer drinker after having the Stout. Little sad they don't do anything special for youngsters turning 21. Over all the food was great. My wife had the fish and chips - Great, my daughter have the 1/2 rack of ribs - loved them and she works at Famous Dave's - my son and I had the 12 ounce NY Strip - very good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Filet of Filets....zilchDined on 6/10/2013I have dined at the Tap Room at least 6 times in the past eight months.......I have always ordered the filet......when I was at the Tap Room on June 10th, of course I ordered the filet..........much to my disappointment the filet was a tad fatty.......I did share my disappointment with the waitress who said she would pass my info to the chef....... Other than that I thought everything else was great......when will you be adding like a cheesy biscuit to the menut?Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- like tapsterryDined on 6/2/2013i prefer taps to the buffet and breeze. it's cheaper and the food is better tasting. wish it had carryouts. we love the french onion soup, eventhough the last time we were there is was a little shy on the cheese.Special Features:
- Great casual eve outOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 5/22/2013Nice for couples with men who want to stay connected to the sport world.Special Features:
- Our service was poor. NeverFreddyDined on 5/12/2013Our service was poor. Never came back around for refills or to ask us how our dinner was. Came for Mother's Day and was expecting better service. Waitress only took food order and didn't see her again until needed receipt.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Love the atmosphere, howeverOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 4/22/2013Love the atmosphere, however our service was extremely slow. I would sit at the bar next time.
- Service was extremely slow.OpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 4/20/2013Service was extremely slow. Food took over an hour and that was only because we complained. Waitress never addressed why it was late. Terribly disappointed. Food was good when it did arrive.
- First timers will becoming back!BDayVIPDined on 4/14/2013The salmon was cooked perfect a little crispy on the outside and very moist on the inside. I got the chicken lettuce wraps that was okay, I will save that one for an Asian restaurant next time. The fried mac and cheese was great! Everyone loved the French onion soup, wedge salad, pastrami sandwich, cheeseburger, and open face steak sandwich. We are already planning our next trip back!Special Features:
- Good experience starting withOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 4/12/2013Good experience starting with the smiling hostesses to the great service from Cleta. We enjoyed the meal and will definitely return.Special Features:
- Good food, bad servicefood12Dined on 4/12/2013Four of us met up here on a Friday. Seated immediately (with reservation). Atmosphere was appropriate for the name. Our waitress was horribly slow and distracted. We ordered our drinks (1 beer, 1 pitcher and the TAP mixed drink). Waitress came back with waters, awkwardly and quietly took our orders and left. The food came extremely fast and the beers were slow to follow behind. The mixed drink came a few minutes after that. We saw our waitress once after we got our food and again for our bill. My pastrami sandwich was great and everyone else said their food was good. Overall, the waitress was slow and inattentive, but every one thought their food was good.
- Everything I have had hereAmmTJMDined on 4/7/2013Everything I have had here has been good. Ribs were excellet not too spicy not too bland not covered in dripping sauce and fall oof the bone lean. THe spiach and artichoke dip always ets good rviews with my guests. Also the French onion soup is perfect. The Philly steak sandwich is good for lunch the next day. Fried chicken was moist and tasty.Special Features:
