 (New York Area)·Dined 4 days ago

Last minute business dinner for an employees last day, and the choice turned out fantastic. All three entrees in my group exceeded expectations. Ahi tuna nachos appetizer was exceptional. That is one app that will get me back sooner rather than later. Service was very good. Will be returning again in the next few weeks to try some other items on the menu.

Luckily they were open on Thanksgiving since we we visiting an elderly relative in Providence. Good variety on the menu and our food was fresh and creative. Had the short rib and Gouda grilled cheese, fish tacos, and burgers. Nice bar too!

We have visited the taphouse several times and the service and food are consistently very good. The menu had changed a bit since our last visit, but we found a couple of new items to try and enjoyed everything very much. A favorite was the mozzarella sticks. We're not sure what the secret ingredients are, but they were very good! The staff is very good about handling food allergies. Two of us had burgers and really enjoyed them and the chicken wings were excellent. Good beer choices and fun atmosphere. Lively but not so loud that we couldn't enjoy our conversation. Our waitress was terrific and the busboy was exceptional in going above and beyond to make sure that we had what we needed and was quick to help us when we spilled some water. It was a small but kind gesture and he smiled and chatted as he changed the paper on the table.

Great food and beer selections!! It did take about 20 minutes to get our oysters because they said they didn't shuck them 'that late' when it was 7pm, but once they came out everything was awesome!!

Food was ok, The fries are frozen. Requested hi top table when making reservations, but we were seated near the kitchen in a half empty restaurant. Our server was polite and enthusiastic she knew the food and beer menus well.

We ended up at Federal Taphouse after not being able to get a table at another restaurant, and I'm glad it worked out that way. Our waitress was great, the bottomless mimosas were delicious and I especially loved the smokey bacon on the side of my french toast.

Our waitress was super friendly, made us feel very welcome and comfortable! Even though we are from out of state, she even said I looked familiar! Just had that great neighborhood feel to it. The food was FANTASTIC. We had the buffalo chicken dip as an appetizer. I had the carne asada tacos and my husband had the bbq pulled pork grilled cheese sandwich. So incredibly good, everything was very fresh, french fries were phenomenal! I had a "tiny tini" of the Anne Bonnie martini, it was delicious and the perfect size for a late afternoon/early evening meal. Pretty quick walk from the Hilton. Would certainly recommend and hope to visit again ourselves!

Great food and atmosphere! Staff are friendly and service was pretty good. The blueberry lemonade drink was refreshing and delicious! The potstickers were better than the fried pickles for appetizers. My friend enjoyed the Tuesday taco special and the buffalo chicken wrap was perfect! Beignets for dessert were the perfect end to a wonderful meal!

This was our 2nd time to the Federal Hill Tap House for the Sunday Brunch. Food was great, portions good size but not huge. Server was friendly and quick to refresh our unlimited mimosas! Did notice that the menu had changed (we had just been there a week or 2 before). Prices all went up slightly and I was disappointed that we no longer could get the tacos (they were 2 for 5 and so good!) as an appetizer. They are now $14 and only served as a meal with fries. (My husband did get a chicken and waffle fries appetizer for the table which was good too). Will be back again.

We were there with 10 people with a reservation. We did have to wait approx 10 minutes before they sat us. Unfortunately we were seated right where the door opened so every time someone came in or out we got a very cold breeze. We ordered apps, the slab of bacon with pumpkin puree was fabulous, buffalo chicken very good, and the nachos were loaded however a bit cold. Dinner was eclectic with our group and everything was fabulous. Drinks were plentiful and our waitress was very attentive. Will go again and try their Sunday Brunch.

Food was good, requested a high top table, but was put in the back corner of the restaurant. The person waiting on the table next to ours either kicked or hit my chair every time she walked by to get to that table. After the third time it was quiet annoying and never one apologized. It is a small place and was loud for an early Saturday night. Not sure we would go back.
