City Tap House strives to elevate the American pub experience. We offer 60 craft brews on draft (3 on nitro) and 40 by the bottle, from local breweries and our favorites from around the world. From the kitchen, City Tap House boasts a diverse menu that is rooted in comfort and with stateside influences.

City Tap decor is an extension of our identity. Warm, comfortable and inviting with communal spaces for large parties in the bar area and a table layout in the dining room lending itself to large groups. Reclaimed wood adorns the walls, prohibition era murals dress the dining room, and industrial styled lighting makes for a cozy atmosphere.

Great beer and even better food — for everyone. We've been dedicated to that very simple idea since 2010. Please join us at the bar. We've been saving you a seat.

Very loud. Conversation at our table of six was impossible. Good beer selection and hamburgers were cooked as ordered.

We were sat promptly in a great both. Service was excellent with Mary. We were very disappointed as there was no brie and no burgers. Food we did get was very good. I especially loved the fritters and the tandoori kabob.

Went for brunch and was able to be seated an hour early for our reservation - and outside. Drinks were good; the blood mary is reasonably priced and the beer selection is incredible. My friend enjoyed her salad and I had order envy. I ordered a pork hash with sweet potatoes off of the brunch menu and I thought it was okay, but wish I had gone with the salad. It had a sweet taste to it, while I was hoping for more savory. I've had a similar experience with dinner; the drinks are always good but the food is average/slightly above average. I would definitely go back to sit outside on a nice day - but maybe stick to drinks.

I really enjoyed my visit to the City Tap House, reserving a table was a good thing as I might not have gotten in, as the place was busy!! The food was Excellent and the Beer was nice and cold and the service was outstanding. We had Connor for our waiter and he did an AWESOME job checking on us to make sure we had what we needed and that we were happy. He is an excellent waiter!! All in All the vistit was great and we'll be back :)

Unfortunately; our server was a very salty women who either wanted no part of her job or our group. She continually rolled her eyes at us and we had to (on more than one occasion) wave her down to acknowledge us.
Three of our six had never been to City Tap and I can tell you; they won't be back. This was a truly terrible experience. I expect far more for what we paid.
We told her prior to one guests arrival it was their birthday - and she assured us she'd bring cake. Not only did we have to ask in front of the guest; but she threw it on the table and it was some kind of cookie that wasn't fully cooked. We would have said something to her - but she only returned to leave the check.

For a busy night, service was good. Food was delicious and manager was on point and explained the grill was backed up and pushed our burgers to be a little late to table. The staff was accommodating and didn’t have to wait long for drinks even though the bar was packed.
Good experience.

What a great spot! Food was amazing! We are vegetarian and found plenty of items to enjoy!

We stopped for lunch before heading to the children’s museum; we had our stroller and I was a little nervous about where we would store it once we were seated. No need to worry at all; there was a very convenient ramp that went right into the restaurant where I was pleasantly surprised to see ample room to park my stroller and a large area to hang coats and bags .

Our waiter Connor was wonderful! It was our daughter‘s third birthday and he went out of his way to make a special dessert for her!

The hosting staff and bussers were also very welcoming, friendly and prompt.

The brussels sprouts Were amazing and a must try! We also loved the G.O.A.T pizza!!!
We can’t wait to come back again! This will definitely be part of our next experience while visiting Boston !

Service was somewhat slow, but it is a great place for a big group. The patio seating is fun but it is an extra wait. The brunch food was more southern type food (chicken and waffles/eggs and biscuits). Mimosas are $5. Overall not an awful place, but also not the best restaurant in Seaport.

Incredibly loud. Might work for the bar scene but if you want to have any kind of discussion at dinner then go elsewhere. Should actually provide hearing protection at the door

Very loud but great atmosphere. The server was at the table a little too often so we started feeling rushed. I had a tenderloin special that I was warned would come out Medium but was extremely well done. The meat was not like any tenderloin I've had before. It was chewy and had some muscle. I suspect it was a lesser cut. It did not live up to the $36 price tag. Out of respect to my guests I did not make a fuss over it but otherwise might have sent it back. I would try to go back again because it looked like a fun place to be.

The place was nice, good ambience, but the crowd was a little out of my scene. Very hipster, and I just felt a little out of place. There wasn't many options that I found appealing on the menu, but the burger was ABSOLUTELY TO DIE FOR! One of the best burgers I have ever had! Also had the potato pizza, it was good as well.

This was my first time at City Tab and it was amazing! I went there for a business meeting with coworkers and your food blew it out of the water. Especially with the non-alcoholic beer as we had someone who was pregnant. Thank you for a great experience.

Food is always great here! Lots of beer selection and it is a bit slower paced than other bars in Southie/Seaport, which is great. People are more relaxed here. Service was just enough. My GF and I come here often.

We loved the food and beer selection at City Tap. The services was very good. Had a great table in smaller room next to main dining area. It was 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon in winter and they were packed. Luckily I had made a reservation for 1 pm and they were able to seat us right away however people who did not have a reservation were given a wait time of 1+ hours

This was my third time dining here and the first time for my friends' group. They all loved it! We were quickly getting together for a meal before Beerfest at the trade center, and we were able to order, eat, and get where we needed to be at the perfect pace without feeling rushed. The food was incredible as usual (we got burgers, pizzas, and a really good salad with gouda, apple, and arugula). Our server, Tim, was awesome and helpful, and everyone is looking forward to coming back for a more leisurely meal (with lots of beer next time!).
