    We sat at the dinning area. Beers were great and kept coming. Calamari was excellent, folks who ordered burgers and sandwiches liked their food. The steak & fries were disappointing, it doesn't specify what cut they serve, so it ends up based on what someone can hack at the back from some lump of meat. I will stick fish tacos next time.

    From te hostess to the bartender, the service was lacking any sort of appreciation for customers. I dined on a Friday night at 9:00pm. The food was ok. Seems like a great place to grab a beer with friends but I would skip the food and don't be in a hurry.

    we had a reservation for 11:30 our drinks took about 45 minutes to arrive and our food didn't arrive until almost an hour into the lunch - several people at our table had orders that weren't quite right -missing bacon, missing avocado, cooked wrong etc. Our server hustled to fix things, but overall - as a team - we decided we won't come back for lunch because it took too long and wasn't that great for the cost and hassle.

    My colleagues and I were looking for something casual and the Tap House was a good find. The food was delicious and the number of beers on tap exceeded our expectations. However the service was what really impressed us. I has the jambalaya and outside of New Orleans, it was very good.

    While the food at Tap House was surprisingly good (loved the seared ahi salad, salmon entree, and fish tacos), the interior was dark and dreary and reminded me of 70s design elements including choice of paint color, wall texture, fabric, etc. We came as a family early evening because we'd seen good reviews, but this is a hot spot and probably the dark interior was to encourage drinking and nighttime enjoyment among singles and people getting off work, all of which didn't work for us. Also the waiter re-corked the bottle after pouring our wine with a layer of frothy bubbles like you'd expect for a glass of beer.

    Came for Father's Day Dinner. AMAZING beer list - it is a bit overwhelming and will take some time to study. We were pleasantly surprised that Sunday has happy hour from 3:30 on, so ordered a few from that list and an item from the main menu. We ordered Chili Calamari, Popcorn Shrimp, california roll, salmon roll, bacon-wrapped jalapenos, and an Ahi salad. The popcorn shrimp were very good, cooked perfectly, with the shrimp being very tender and flavorful with a crispy coating. The sushi was just so-so, had to ask for soy and a small dish for dipping it in... Not bad, just not memorable. Bacon wrapped jalapeno -decent, crispy bacon & jalapeno added enough spice to make it interesting. Ahi Salad - meh. Dressing almost non-existent.

    They were out of the salmon burger, ao went with the fish taco which was previously recommended, best decision! It was great. The downside was the service, we asked for straw and extra napkins and it too ages to come. Also we asked for the bill, which took a while too and once it came the waitress didn't come back for it, my friend had to take it in, and lastly they messed up splitting the bill three ways. The waitress also offered me a salad or soup option without specifically stating that it was not part of the lunch special. All in all I'll be going back because the food was that good!

    Convenient to downtown Bellevue, but out of the shopping malls. Service was good, food arrived with no delays. Orders were accurate, even with substitutions or deletions of certain items. Waiter was professional and not too friendly. Food was good -- lots of it and quality was just fine for the price. My salad was fresh and the fish tacos were very nicely seasoned.

    This was a great dinner choice for our group of 7: friends gathering, not having seen each other in months, wanting to catch up and enjoy a meal together. Menu has wide variety of choices, something for everyone. We were seated at a round table, perfect for visiting. We had an early reservation, and that was good, because as the evening got later, the restaurant grew noisier. Friendly, attentive service but not too intrusive. There when you needed something, but never interrupting our conversation.

    Met another couple for dinner 6:30 Friday night. Was busy with an energetic atmosphere. The cocktail seemed a little watered down, they had a good selection of wines and of course beer. The menu has a little something for everyone. The lamb shanks could have been cooked a little more as the meat should just fall off the bone with a fork in my opinion. Wait staff was attentive but forgot to box up left over the crab mac and cheese.

    The food and the beer was wonderful. The wait staff was very attentive and everyone was very happy with thier foor and dining experience. The Lombarde Frambroise (I think that is what it was called) is fabulous. It is a raspberry beer that is equal to a raspberry martini. There were 5 of us in our lunch party. Everyone received their drinks and food at the same time. The food was hot and tasty.

    went in for lunch on Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was less than half full. Our waiter took f-o-r-e-v-e-r to do absolutely anything with or for us. It took over 30 minutes for us to receive our burgers after finally getting to order. What should have been a 45 minute to an hour lunch was well over 90 minutes. The waiter was not apologetic in any way, which is kind of the worst of it.

    They advertise 160 beers on tap yet the first 2 I tried to order were out. Not a great start when the whole reason I went was to check out the big selection. Still 158 is great assuming they were not out of others. Turkey club sandwich was above average and for only $11 was a good buy. I will return and would recommend to friends.

    This was our second time there. we live in Olympia and drove to Bellevue just to go to the Tap House. it is one of our favorite restaruants. it was my boyfriends birthday and we have always gotten great customer service and the food is excellent not to mention all the beers on tap as my boyfriend is a beer snob....all the staff were very friendly and eager to please. They also gave him a free desert for his b-day. We will be back in the very near future.

Server wasn't very attentive and I'd have to stop someone passing by to get a water refill so I wouldn't come here if you expect great service. But if you want great beer, this is your place.
