We sat on the patio and enjoyed the evening weather . Service was attentive and prompt. Food left a little to be desired - both a steak and hamburger had to be sent back because they were well done and had asked for rare/medium rare. The steak especially is hard to understand - not sure how rare = well done. The pretzel app was good if a bit too salty while the wings were a little cold when they arrived. Beer prices were high, even for Clarendon, probably about $1 more per beer than you would expect.

They had no coffee for brunch. And they admitted that their coffee machine had been broken for two weeks and that they had made no effort to find an interim solution (coffee presses or drip machines). A major disappointment for Father's Day brunch.

We were there for brunch on a weekend and were told that the coffee MACHINES have been broken for weeks. It went downhill from there. One has the impresstion that ATP is not long for this location.

We used to go regularly and loved the burgers. The turkey burger is no longer on the menu. My salmon Caesar had a minuscule portion of salmon that was somewhat over-cooked. Service was still very friendly and it is a very nice atmosphere, but I don't like how the menu has changed.

This is the second time we visited & the service has been excellent both times. The waiters are friendly and helpful with menu and beer choices. The menu is great with a wide selection .

Have been to this restaurant about two dozen times since it opened in Clarendon. Everything has gone downhill -- the food choices, the portions, the attentiveness by the staff. Meanwhile only one thing has gone up: the prices. "Corporate," as I was told by a manager when I complained about my disappointing recent experience, has forced the Arlington location to either raise prices or cut portions. It's a downhill spiral, sadly. There are lots of choices in the Clarendon and nearby areas...American Tap Room needs to get it together to remain an appealing option.

The wings were wonderful...the turkey avocado sandwich and burger were great but not the bread and bun...they tasted old and stale.

Saturday brunch was not crowded, but they must have been short staffed. We waited about 45 minutes to order because our server never came back. Eventually we asked another server to help us out. She did her best to fix the problem, as did the chef who came out to ask folks if their food was okay, but neither the server who caused the problem nor management took time to apologize for the poor service.

I ordered the pancakes, which were delicious but the portion was enough for three people! I took home what I couldn't finish. I also had a bloody mary, which was fresh and fantastic. My friends were also happy with their choices, but everyone agreed the portions were very large.
Always a good time at ATR Clarendon! Fun just to hang out at the bar, as well.

We had high expectations based on the reviews. But this was planned. The service is really great. But it was definitely a very underwhelming meal for a hundred dollars.

If this place was closer, we would dine here more than we already do. The service is excellent and they take care to make sure your dish is prepared just as you like. Side dish substitutions are no problem. The service staff will take the time to make recommendations. The atmosphere is quiet away from the bar, and a little nosier near the bar, but never loud unless you are actually in the bar itself during a major sporting event.

Oh - the on tap beers list is absolutely one of the best in the area! They always have some truly outstanding beers to try. Take your server's recommendation and you most likely will not be disappointed (unless it is a type of beer you just don't like).

The manager was kind enough to come to the table and discuss the issue and provide a $20 gift care for the issue

Athena is a great server, that's why I keep coming back. She is knowledgeable, makes great suggestions and is attentive. The food is good, last Saturday night the bar was loud and crowded, a bit too noisy for me, but all the patrons were having a ball. I'll stick to the dining room.

Our extended family plus 2 one-year-olds had a superb lunch (great food, really!) with excellent service on Sunday. The staff were very accommodating with table-chair arrangements, highchairs, etc. All of the food arrived simultaneously, hot, and well presented. Waiting staff was outstanding, attentive, all you could ask for. This is a favorite place, though we can't enjoy it as much as we'd like to.

Food was very good - my grilled salmon was nicely prepared with sautéed spinach. Extensive beer list was a plus; one friend had a flight; I enjoyed my locally-brewed draft. Noise level moderate, but the restaurant was quiet as it was a Tuesday evening. Very comfy leather chairs at each table. Server knew a lot about beer!

The service was very attentive but not overbearing; the crab cake was delicious. My son loved the chocolate cake that was warm with ganache in the middle. Yum!
