A word from Valley Tap House
The Tap House specializes in Baltimore Style Pit Meat. This preparation involves rubbing a high-quality piece of meat with a special housemade spice mixture and allowing it to marinate for three days. The meat is then seared on a specially installed pit grill which chars the outside and cooks it
juicy and tender on the inside. Finally it is sliced paper thin and served on a kaiser roll. A variety of meats are pit grilled in this fashion and served according to your desires. Popular choices include the Pit Beef served with raw onions and homemade horseradish sauce or the Pit Ham served with swiss cheese, grilled peppers, onions and a homemade honey dijon sauce. Additionally, a diner can choose from a menu including gourmet hamburgers, home baked pretzels, ale steamed mussels, shells & cheese, parm crusted halibut, and a full selection of desserts. Vegetarian options are available and our staff would be happy to accommodate dietary needs.

The Tap House Chicken Sandwich and
Hand Cut Fries were delicious, definitely recommended. The Butermilk Cole Slaw was spicey and unlike any cole slaw I've ever had; very good. The server was friendly and good about refilling soft drinks. Definitely will be returning!"

Sandwiches buns way too large,
juices soaked into bottom, made them soggy, they fall apart if picked up. Incredibly loud, had to shout to communicate with friends across the table. They must think all will be forgiven if they put a mound of french fries the size of a football on my steak plate."

We have frequented Valley Tap
House a number of times. This is the best "pub fare" restaurant in town. A great, constantly changing beer assortment and finally a change from "great burgers". The pit beef style is wonderful. For people who can never find lamb on a menu, the lamb burger served on pita is fantastic. The stampede fries are a guilty pleasure. I avoid fries as a rule and figure that if they can be such a treat like at a state fair, they are worth it. I look forward to trying a few of the unusual items you never see in the typical burger bar. Stuffed dates or a beet salad. Keep it up."

Food was great. We all enjoyed it.
Only complaint I have is that it was way yo dark where we sitting. Had to use lights on cell phones to read the menu."

Food was hot and delicious. I had
the Halibut and paired it with Risotto and it was a great pairing. My husband had the pork chop and ate the WHOLE thing! The waiter was on his game and service was great. Would recommend again. However, I booked through Open Table and got a reply back that I no showed. I did tell Hostess that we had a reservation but I guess she didn't bother about matching it up."

We really enjoyed all our food but
our service was very slow. We waited 10 min after getting our dessert menu for our server to come back to take our dessert order."

Valley Tap House is our go to
local spot for a good Burger or Pit Meat sandwich and happy hour deal. Although our favorite spot is the patio, living in this state only allows that for a few precious months. Dining indoors doesn't have nearly the relaxing "carpe diem" vibe but still good. This place is often critiqued for lackluster service. For us, it's never horrible but also seldom outstanding. Thus, go in with a mindset that you'll be socializing and "chilling" out, and you'll be fine. Expect to eat quickly - probably not the spot for you. The pit meat sandwiches and tacos cannot be beat. Fries are incredible (just insist that they come out hot.) Great 2 for 1 Happy Hour and beer selection."

As a lot of the reviews I read
said, the food here was fantastic! We found the service to be lacking though. The hosts seemed annoyed by our presence then when we requested the dinning room because the bar was so loud they put us in the closest booth to the bar when the rest of the dining room was empty. Waitress seemed nice but didn't write our order down then had to come back after she placed it to double check it. Drinks didn't get refilled and it took 10 minutes to get my card back after she took the check. All that being said, the food was worth the hastle and we would actually go back. Perhaps we'll try the bar side this time..."

We enjoyed 2 for one beers happy
hour, 1/2 off appetizer special, and kids eat free on Mondays with adult entree!! Mondays at Valley Tap House RULE! Our kids love the cheese pizza and we really enjoy the Thai Dragon and the Gouda Burger! We got LOTS of food for our money."

First impression was standing at
the host stand for 2 minutes before anyone greeted. Service was slow and unenthusiastic. I couldn't tell if she was a poor server or had too many tables which would mean poor management. I did not see a manager once throughout the 1.5 hours we were there. Our food took 20 min which didn't seem necessary for a not busy night and burgers and a salad. The fries were cold on both entrees. It seemed as though food was waiting under the lamps for other food or no one simply ran it. No sense of urgency was felt by anyone. If this is how the Valley Tap House is run, there is no point in checking out the new place in EP mall when it opens. Disaster waiting to happen."

We've had up and down service
experiences over the past year (plus) but have never had a bad meal! Everything we've tried on the menu has been great. Recommend the pork belly appetizer, the Gouda burger, Thai Dragon Pit Beef and the Cajun Shrimp Pizza...and the beer selection is great too."

Ordered Pit pork& Ham sandwich &
coleslaw. Lots of near but not a lot of flavor. Coleslaw was more chopped salad than slaw."

We were very disappointed with the
server...it was kids day...and we had our three children and he didn't give them crayons! He did not come back to the table to check on us for refills , etc. he did not seem to be happy with his job/day and it showed! Worst service! The "hand cut fries" were not as good as advertised."

Good selection of beers and food.
Enjoyed the pizzas. Had my sister and her family along. The kids enjoyed themselves and their meals. Saw the out door area on the way out. Look like a great place to enjoy those nice evenings out doors."
Dined on 5/31/2013
Food was good. Waitress was very
rude...checked her tip and took it before we left. She then had an attitude and ask if everything was okay? We said yes and she questioned it...making it seem like our tip wasn't big enough. Couldn't believe it."
Dined on 5/24/2013
It's an ok place but if we didn't
have the discount certificate, it wouldn't have been worth it."
Dined on 4/30/2013
our server was distracted,
inattentive and we had to ask for things multiple times before we got them. food was fine, but the service was sub-par on Sunday!"
