Always a great time at Federal Tap! They were able to accommodate our request to sit inside and our service was awesome! Expect a little bit of a wait on the weekend, but the food / drinks are well worth it.

The staff were incredibly accommodating of our requests for an umbrella (they borrowed one from the restaurant next door!) and were kind and charming throughout our visit. We enjoyed our food and drinks and had a lovely brunch!

Food was excellent. Service was decent. The only complaint I have is room temperature, however it was very hot out yesterday so that was also a factor. Would definitely go again though! Great vibe and good music.

This was our first time eating here, and although it wasn't terrible, we won't be rushing back. The French fries were served cold, and the tortilla chips were overcooked. Also, the noise was so loud it was hard to have a conversation.

Everyone was so friendly. We had a great time. I do believe that $13 was on the high side for a small kettle one martini. I will most likely order another type of cocktail next time.

Service was poor and slow. I think if we would have had better service our experience may have been better. The staff sometimes doesn’t realize that they are representing the restaurant to brand new patrons and that the first impression of the restaurant is what they portray of it. It is sad that some service members do not take that to heart and cause the business harm.

Great pub! Small on the inside, and small menu, but the food was delicious. We dined in on a Friday evening and there was live music! Always a plus for me. Service was good and my raspberry margarita was yummy!

This was my first time here with a few of my friends. The food was really great. The drinks were inconsistent as i had ordered a spicy marg and it tasted completely different the second time i got it and i couldn't finish it. The service unfortunately was absolutely terrible. She didn't tell us her name but she barely came to the table and we could not find her for about 45 minutes. Different servers brought our food out and they got every single order wrong and had to take all four plates back. Once the food was dropped we all needed silverware but could not find our server so we could not eat until we asked the hostess for them. I most likely won't go back due to the poor service.

Very slow service. Had to go get the hostess to ask her to find a wait-person for our table. Once she arrived, the waitress was very pleasant, but the service still slow. Too long between ordering a beer and receiving a beer, ordering a refill and received a refill.
