    Gastropub's index on either food or beer, but never quite get to both. TAP does both very well. Beer selection is wide and deep, food goes from starters to small plates to full on meals. Highly recommend.

    From the host saying we'd have to wait before even asking if we had a reservation, to the new waitress not knowing any beers from the list, we found this place has changed for the mundane. There is still a decent drink list, but I always found the food surprisingly daring for the atmosphere. I think it may just be adjusting to its customer's tastes, but it's noticeably downscale now. I was looking forward to trying the vegetable plate that was so outstanding last time, but not offered now. Instead, the risotto entree was decent tasting, but more of a porridge than risotto. I'll stick to ordering just beer if I come back.

    Dined on 11/15/2014
    Located in Mid-Town near the Alliance Theatre, this tap house/restaurant was an ideal choice for our "evolving" gathering for dinner and drinks with local alumni from our school. Our server, did an excellent job of keeping up with our orders and providing a lively, personable banter with the various members of our group. It turned out to be a complex series of split tabs to track, as people variously left and joined our group, and our server was up to the task, and very professional with her customers. Well done. We'll be back!

    My group of six had less than an hour for dinner prior to a 7:30 show at the Alliance. Upon arrival our waiter inquired about out desired departure time. He was great never making us feel rushed yet getting us to the theater with time to spare. Our good was great, the wrinkled green beans fabulous. This will be our go to for dinner prior to the theater.

    I made reservations for 10 people for Sunday 1pm brunch. There were only two other tables occupied when I arrived (we sat inside). The TVs were muted and the staff was very attentive. The food was good but not memorable. Complementary valet parking is a great perk, but I wish it was advertised better. Overall it was a great place for us, and I'd definitely recommend it!

    Love this place for brunch so took hubby to birthday dinner. The chairs at the bar and on the high top we sat at are very uncomfortable/awkward. No place to put purses or sweaters for the ladies. Our server was very nice, but kind of inattentive. The restaurant wasn't very busy so not sure what was going on there. We had eaten apps and waited a good 20 minutes before we could flag her down to ask her if we could order dinner. She never stayed put in one place long enough for us to order more drinks etc. Apparently the chef likes to over spice food so when it says spicy, it means burn tastebuds off tongue. One friend left his whole plate untouched-the dish he ordered wasn't labeled spicy on menu. Go for brunch. Fried pickles are delish!

    My husband and I went to TAP late on a Thursday night. The calamari appetizer was greasy and badly in need of salt. I had the butcher steak which was fine nothing spectacular, my husbands pork shank, however was spectacular! The drinks were extremely small, over priced and lackluster. I expect there to at least be fresh muddled fruit in drinks at that size and price point. The layout of the restaurant is awkward especially the location of the restrooms. Overall it was fine not great not horrible.

    This used to be a great gastropub, but yesterday was not good at all. I waited 5 mins for the valet to show up to get my car. We waited another 10 mins inside for someone to greet us. (No hostess was available). It took the server almost all night for her to become some what friendly. And the food less than desirable.

    In spite of tables too close together, we managed to have an acceptable business lunch. Service is inattentive and offhand. The patio will be a reason to go back once the temperature plummets under 90.

    When I arrived for a noon reservation, I asked that they send my lunch companion to the table upon arrival. I was seated at the far end of the first floor and couldn't see new arrivals. After 20 or so minutes, my friend found me at the table and said that she had been seated upstairs since @ noon. She had left clear instructions upon arrival including our names and to please direct me to the table. There was NO communication among servers and hostesses (if there was a designated hostess). Also, we had to ask for ice tea three times before it arrived. Food was great, however, and it arrived promptly.

    We had no idea what to expect from Tap; but it was outstanding. A wonderful selection of beers, especially impressed with the selection of drafts. The food was delicious. We tried a variety of items, and everything was seasoned perfectly - so many great flavors. Especially impressive: the fried pickles (made with sweet pickles) and served with a jalapeno dip; the braised pork shank - so tender and flavorful; the jalapeno mac & cheese - the absolute best ever! Our server was very helpful and friendly.

    The food was very good...while the menu was limited it was diverse. We had no trouble finding something to suit us from the choices available. I had the gnudi and it was outstanding! I especially loved the limas and peas that were served with it. If you are looking for a no meat meal this is a winner! My husband had the fish and chips and, although it was a little bready, it was cooked properly and was very flavorful. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio. The weather was perfect!

    tap used to be a great place to get a craft beer and a decent meal on one of the best patios in midtown. now its just very mediocre. the one shining star is the food, and still the patio, but everything else is a hot mess. before we ordered anything, we were told that half the taps were down, at the beer place. then, we ordered salads and an entree each, both showed up at the same time. we turned away the entree only to be later served the same food that was under a heat lamp for 10-15 minutes. bad form all the way around. this used to be a great place, but unfortunately the great food and patio can't save it.

    Solid gastro pub in midtown. We sat outside and did not mind the traffic going by, but some might. The patio is not right no peachtree, it is situated a bit further back. Their burger was amazing. When it was delivered to the table next to us, I almost did not order it because of how understated it looked. What a mistake that would have been, it was amazing and one of the best I have had in the city.
