My fiance and his family and I went to American Tap Room in Reston Town Center for lunch after the Holiday Parade. We expected to wait for a table because the town center was flooded with patrons. We were told 15-20 minutes. It was longer than that. By the time we were called, we were all starving. We were led to a high top table, even though we had said we couldn't be seated at one because we had children and a baby. We were taken the long way through a crowded restaurant to the wrong table. Back to waiting. Ten minutes later we were seated. We ordered drinks and wings all at the same time. It took FOREVER for the wings to come out. At this point, everyone is beyond cranky. The server kept coming by saying the wings were "coming out soon," but it was a seriously long wait for them to actually show up. In the amount of time it took them to bring the wings, we should have been served our entire meal. The entrees came out shortly after the wings. My fiance was served the wrong side. They resolved this quickly, but honestly the food did not meet our expectations. I got the chicken biscuit sliders (something that has become popular at restaurants) and the biscuits were hard and crumbly. My fiance said his sandwich was cold. We were profusely apologized to for the long wait, and compensated $15 off the bill for a long ticket time, but we were so hungry, the service was so bad, and the food so mediocre that there was no coming back from the experience. The kids got complimentary cotton candy, and Shirley Temple refills to go, so they were excited, but the adults were not. We will not be back.

Ordered drinks. Waiter didn't bring water or utensils for the table. Dropped off food. Never checked in. Came by at the end and gave us our check. It seemed like he had better things to do...

Food was ok. Wanted to split a kids meal for kids but was told we should get two. We got two. Kids didn't like the food. Bunch of food went to waste...

Outstanding Brunch! This is the lazy persons version of brunch--you never have to get up and wait in a buffet line, you order off the menu (all you can eat) and they bring the food to you! Under $30 and you get fabulous drink specials with the AYCE brunch as well. We sat outside on the patio in the beautiful Fall weather and it was great people watching. Laura was our server--she was attentive and informative. Going back very soon!

We ordered 6 items. Above average were the fish and chips and calamari. Average was the burger and pretzel. Way below average was the seared tuna salad and the salmon--just awful. Stay away from fish here.

The steak I ordered was by far one of the worst I've ever had. I ordered the bourbon ribeye, medium well. What I received was a flavorless, fat slab. It was full of fatty meat. It's like they gave me the worst cut they had, hoping I wouldn't notice. My wife's shrimp had little to no seasoning as well. The drinks and the Tap Tap Shrimp appetizer were the highlights of our experience here. The rest is very, very forgettable. For a $34 entree, they've got to do better with that ribeye. It was shameful.

We had a lovely dining experience at The American Tap Room. We hadn't been there for a very long time since we moved out of the area several years ago. It was as delicious as we remembered. It was early on a Saturday evening, the noise level was moderate and service was very good. Highly recommend!

The veggies with the special strip steak - carrots and beets were not cooked at all, way too hard to bite into and chew, would have preferred them steamed and actually cooked. Brussel sprouts were great. filet steak meals were ok, have had better steak for 1/3 less the price in other places.

Tap Room is a nice place for a reasonably priced lunch here in the Reston Towne Center. I've been here a couple of times for lunch with larger groups and the service was pretty good. The manager appeared to be friendly and check on us to make sure that everything was fine. Over all it's a pretty decent place to eat.

Both Ceasar salads are great. Everything we've tried has been very good. They have been very accommodating when we have a stroller as well.

After a movie, my wife and I had a wonderful meal in the American Tap Room. The waitress had excellent recommendations. The food was good and hot. The fireplace provided nice ambiance in the center of the dining room. Lots of booths which we like for quieter conversation. It was a great meal. The bar has nice sized screens and wide selection - we weren't there long though.

Celebrated a friends birthday with lunch here on Saturday. Great menu with brunch and regular items. I had egg scramble with spinach, mushrooms & tomatoes. Delicious. Friends had flatbread and Caesar and loved them. Shawn, our bartender, was awesome. Recommended some great beers. Especially enjoyed the Bells dark. Thank you. Great lunch!
