    The Taphouse grille is our favorite neighborhood restaurant for many reasons. The food is consistently excellent including an extensive specials list. Of course we have our favorites, asian calamari, crispy eggplant, filet egg rolls! Brick oven pizzas are perfectly cooked, thin crust and sauce with a little extra spice. You can't miss with the burgers either. Paired with a good craft beer and it's a perfect night. The beer selections vary and you can choose from stouts to pale ales from local breweries as well as other popular craft beer suppliers. The staff is the draw for us. Attentive, professional, warm and friendly, they are the best in the business and the main reason we are "regulars" at the Taphouse Grille.

    My husband and I got married here and it holds a special place in out hearts for us! The food is great and the people who work there are so friendly and they recognize us always coming over to say hello. The manager Mike is just the best!! He helped us with our wedding and his professionalism and friendliness (not to mention his patience with us and all our questions!) is always appreciated! You won't be disappointed here.

    All I have to say is $40 to wait 35 minutes for an omelet. Not worth the money at all. Disorganized and slim pickings for a buffet brunch.

    Excellent beers on tap. Nice special drinks. Very good food. All that makes this a terrific local pub. Everything is a a bit upscale from what you would expect at a pub. Plenty of classic bar food, great and unique pizzas and surprisingly good specials. We have been here several times and are never disappointed. Only downside is the noise. No sound absorbing material anywhere. Hard to have a conversation.

    Enjoyed dinner there the other night! They call it comfort food in the description but I would call it upscale bar fare. Nice choice of appetizers and we'll made entrees. We had the chicken, burger, crab cakes and filet mingnon... All of them done right. Go there, you will enjoy it! But expect an energetic noise level it will be crowded on a Saturday night!

    TapHouse never disappoints. Consistently good food. Recently went on successive Thursday and Friday nights and both nights had a very energetic atmosphere. The salmon entree is always reliable. If you go for the pan roasted chicken special one must like spicy food. Good beer list.

    The menu is great with something for everyone. Extensive beer menu. It is a large restaurant with plenty of room between the tables. The service was poor. When we had to return a burger because it was undercooked it took a long time to get it back. The staff comped us our coffees to make up for the problem. I'd try it again.

    The food was very good, although the ceasar salad was a bit overdressed. There are over 20 craft beers on tap, and you could order any four as a flight. Our entrees were very good (Fish and chips, and linguine w/ clam sauce). The waiter checked in with us a few times to make sure everything was OK. The noise level, when the place is full, is very loud, but bearable. We will defintely return with friends.

    Went on a Saturday evening at five pm. (usually a quieter time in many restaurants) and the place was hopping....very loud but it didn't bother us too much. Food was excellent. Good micro-brew beer list, but good wine selections too....nice ambiance, sort of an upscale sports bar, but with a family mix thrown in, at least when we were there. Have been here before, never been disappointed and will certainly return.

    Straight-ahead American food, but all fresh and tasty. The big attraction is the separate beer menu which changes every month. You can get a flight and sample four beers at a time. If you want a burger and a beer - a really good burger with some really good beer - I know of no better place.

    Overall it was ok. Went for brunch this past Sunday. Place was virtually empty and the buffet was quite limited. That being said, the food was decent and I did enjoy the bloody Mary bar. However, I feel like they'd be able to give people more for their money if they had a brunch menu as opposed to the buffet. I am normally a fan of buffet brunch, but the quality was subpar and I think it's because it is buffet style and not a la cart.

    Large selection of items on menu. The service and the food were excellent. Would return to try other items on menu. Get the eggplant appetizer. It was different and unusual with goat cheese on top and jalapeno peppers in marinara sauce.

    Having not been here since April, after multiple poor experiences, I was pleasantly surprised to see adjustments have been make in the kitchen. The menu featured creative new seasonal items, and the food came out fresh and hot. This had been an issue before but whoever they have running the kitchen now is doing a much better job. We did wait a little long for our entrees, but I'll forgive that as everything came out steaming and delicious. We had the calamari appetizer, which has been a favorite of ours since they opened. I had the scallops and he had the skirt steak. Both were cooked nicely and had flavorful sauces and sides. Looks like we will be putting the Taphouse back in rotation.

    Grub was casual but very good. We didn't have to wait long to be served and this on Valentine's Day, no less! I did not like the fact that my steamed mussels did not come with lemon or a spoon. My husband quicky fixed that situation but I definitrly wished for a more attentive waitress at that point. Both mussels and crab cake sandwich that i had and hubby's cheeseburger were very good.

    In the last two months we've been here half a dozen times, but this night it was particularly busy and the food and service suffered for it. Our server was running up and down the stairs to take care of a large party as well as individual tables. Other times we've been here service was promt and the food was good. For apps we always love the short rib tacos and calamari Thai style. Burgers are hit or miss, on this night they were dry and over cooked. The steak sandwich my boyfriend always orders was half the size it normally was and served on a hamburger roll as opposed to a hoagie. Not sure yet if this is a cost cutting measure or just a shortage one night. The beer selection is great and now that they do growlers we can enjoy it at home.

    Nice atmosphere, but very quiet on the day we went. The food was good, not great, though the portions were quite generous. They need to be considering the prices ($13 cheeseburger). The beer list was a little disappointing, in that what was available didn't match the menu. I asked for 5 different beers that were either out of stock or had been substituted with something different. And all while a large "grand opening" banner flapped outside. All in all, it has potential but the execution didn't match our expectations.
