    We LOVE coming to the Tap House! We always like to try the rotating handles and they have MURPHY'S on tap! Yum! The food is always fantastic, and they have a great happy hour. Today we had the asian chicken salad, and their italian mac n cheese; both were delicious! A little noisy but it's never so bad that you can't hear one another. :)

    Took my parents here for dinner, while they were visiting from South Carolina. They were impressed with the beer selection and the food! The soups here are incredible, and I have never been disappointed with an entree. The taps are hit or miss- they claim to have 180, but many are often out. The happy hour menu is one of the best I have ever seen in Seattle!

    Our server (Wayne) and the bussers were great! But we made a reservation...and they seated us right in front of the stairs (entryway), which felt a little weird. I had the fish tacos (pretty good), he had a cheeseburger (and said it was delicious), he had the Deschuttes porter (loved it!) I had a cocktail that I didn't like (Tiki Tini), but that was my taste, I think, not the cocktail maker's fault, AND they let me order a different one (the Raspberry Lemon Quencher, loved it!), and didn't charge me for the first one :) They were hosting like 3 different parties for Microsoft employees, so there was a lot of movement, but I bet it's nicer on a quieter night! Only 3 blocks from the Paramount theatre (where we were going for a show)!

    Have eaten at Tap House a few times. Our reservations were handled well. But when we were seated, no one came to our table even though several wait staff were "bustling around" us at other tables. After 10 minutes I actually had to raise my arms and flag a person over just to get water. It seemed each table had a different waiter so no one person was responsible for the area. The manager was responsive and comped us a free round of drinks.

    After dining frequently at the Bellevue location we were expecting much higher standards. We were very disappointed with the overall experience. The service was mediocre at best. We were crammed into a back corner in an awkward room. The menu lacked appeal and the food was disappointing. We will most definitely not be dining here again.

    So I had made a reservation at this location and then arrived with our party of 5 only to sit and wait 30 min to finally be seated, oh and this was after two groups who had arrived after us had been seated first. When I questioned the staff about this matter they could never seem to find a reason for having us wait. The service didn't stop there, when we were finally seated it took another 20 min to actually get waters and then 15 more for our beers. the food orders took forever as well. The food itself was great but the whole experience was basically ruined by the horrible service. Oh and the restaurant never compensated us for the terrible seating with us having a reservation.

    Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing, but the jambalaya tasted like it was from a box. It seemed like a busy night but that didn't excuse the waiter's poor memory. The food was just ordinary for us. If you are going for just drinks, I'm sure that this is the place. Just sit at the bar, though.

    We were excited to eat at Tap House as we are from out of town, but unfortunately we're extremely disappointed. Service extremely slow- took 20 mins to just get waters after being seated. Food quality poor and literally was ill after having the fish tacos. We wanted a fun experience on our last night in Seattle and had nothing even remotely close. Bummed!

    First, let me say I appreciate any establishment that has 160 beers from around the world on tap. Seattle is a great place for beer. For the second straight evening at different venues, however, our starters or appetizers (call them what you like), arrived simultaneously with our main course entrees. This must be a Seattle thing. The sushi rolls were on the happy hour starter menu, we ordered them separately ten minutes before we ordered main dishes, yet the kitchen saw fit to time the arrival so we got everything at once. Way to ruin the first course. Worse, the server did not seem to care -- this is the way they do it. Seattle has great beer, but no sense of timing.

    Every time I go to Seattle, I have to drop in to Tap House. The food, the service, and the atmosphere are always 5 stars. I'm not one to give my best to just anyplace, but Tap House Seattle NEVER fails to impress me or my guests! The food is absolutely amazing, (don't forget to try the Morning After Burger!) the beer selection is amazing, (there's something there for everyone!) and the service is always fantastic! I don't really like Seattle much, but I have made it a tradition to drop in anytime I go to Seattle. It's like a wonderful hidden gem tucked away inside the heart of the city. I love this place, and will continue to go here far into the future. I have to give Tap House Seattle 5/5 stars! Always recommended, and will continue to!

    We stopped in for dinner before a show at the ACT. A server was quick to come to the table to get our order. The drinks and food came quickly. The only opportunity I would point out is the server was always trying to sell us one more item. The first time was fine, the second okay, but then the third. The restuarant is in the basement so it's dark, not a good place if you want to enjoy the sun.

    Dined on 4/26/2014
    We had theater tickets so needed a reservation and chose Tap House. When we arrived they placed us in what they described as a 'quieter' area. All it was an 'over flow' room...likely for private parties with a TV. None of the ambience/decor of the larger part of the restaurant and certainly not any quieter. Was disappointed overall with the experience, but would go back to the main part of the restaurant in future for a 2nd chance.

    When the six of us were seated, the server did not seem pleased nor happy to serve us. She did warm up a bit to us, but overall her service was a "C". As competitive as the downtown dining scene is, she really needs to step up. I might add...she had attitude when she approached our table. We were not high maintenance nor request any special changes so not sure why the attitude. Also my mini cupcakes I ordered for dessert were still frozen, I was a bit disappointed but overall we were all happy with our meal.

    I got into Seattle late on a Thursday, and there wasn't a lot open... until I found the Tap House Seattle. They were open late with dinner offered into the late hours, coupled with a huge selection of beers on tap. The cedar plank salmon was fantastic and definitely exceeded the pub food you usually find in a tap house.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 4/5/2014
    We took our family (2 adults, 13 yr old & 8 yr old) here before seeing a show at the Paramount. The waiter went out of his way to cheer up my glum 8 year old, including the chef making a dish that wasn't even on the menu just for my child. Best customer service I have seen downtown ever! The noise level was quite high which was a bit overwhelming, so I wouldn't bring my kids back here again just to save them on that one. But I will return for grownup only time.

    Early dinner before the play. Seated promptly at 6:15 on Saturday evening in a smaller room (ten tables}. Restaurant was already full. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. The house salad was fresh, average. We shared tastes of each others dishes. My wife's GARLIC CHICKEN PENNE was OUTSTANDING. My SPICY JAMBALAYA LINGUINE was really good. My daughter's DUNGENESS CRAB MAC AND CHEESE was mild, delicious. Her beau's MACADAMIA MAHI MAHI was flavorful, flaky, and an ample portion. We had the Chocolate Mousse and the Mango Crème Brulee for dessert. Both were exceptionally well done. 160 beers on tap.....MMMMMMMMM

    My husband and 2 teenage daughters and I went to the Tap House before going to see a show at the Paramount Theater. My husband ordered the hangover burger and thought it was pretty good. My oldest daughter got the sushi combo appetizer for her meal and thought it was very good, although the spicy tuna roll was really spicy. Lots of sushi on that so dad helped her out. Youngest daughter got a cheese burger because she wasn't really feeling well and was not up to trying something new. I got the macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi. It was a bit over cooked/dry I thought...almost couldn't tell it was fish. The veggies and the pineapple salsa was good and the rice was ok. We walked to the show after dinner with ease.

    I liked that we seated in a quieter dinning area away from the bar. They have 160 beers on tap plus spirits and wine which was a hit for my husband. The menu had a nice selection of appetizers and menu items. The lamb shanks were excellent , and so was the porter cheddar burger. The chicken in curry was spicy instead of savory which I am used to cooking.
