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.

Had dinner here with our friends before hitting the Ski expo - our table (for 10) was ready right on time - great service, waiter was super attentive - highly recommend!
Birthday celebration brunch was great. Great for a big group.
Great selection of beer.
Food was ok
Portions somewhat lite
The live band was good but the stereo/volume was way too loud since our table was right next to him. Since this is a group dinner spot, it made it difficult for convo. Also, right after he finally finished they put on the Pats game and actually put on the volume so it was back-to-back loudness. (But go Pats!!). Burger was over cooked. Waitress was great.
Our party of six had fun, but we moved from the main restaurant to the private dining room because the restaurant is SO VERY LOUD.
Food was good not great. Chicken wings are usually really good but the time didn’t have enough (any) dry rub on them.
The drink I originally ordered came in a pint glass, something you would receive at a dive-bar, no real thought put into the drink. My boyfriends meal was really nothing like it was described on the menu. The side of fries were all burnt and really small, it looked like they just gave him the end of the batch. Would not recommend for lunch or dinner.
Pizza was cold, but beer and atmosphere was good
Great food, nice craft beer list, great ambiance
Loved the food and great beers! 60 beers on tap, how can you not love that.
We has pizzas, burgers, veggi burgers, sausage special.
Our waiter Jeff was wonderful. Great service and we had to wait for friends who got delayed and he was very understanding! The Abigail mussels were small but the amount and the delicious broth made up for the size. The blue crab Mac and cheese was yummy. Drinks were unique and huge selection of beer and whiskeys and scotch. A fun visit for us as tourists and a nice experience all around.
From start to finish it was all amazing 🙌🏻
I highly recommend this wonderful place!
great pub food, atmosphere was nice. Poor acoustics, too loud. Lighting was poor too, we all had to use flashlights on our phones to read the menu and not all of us were over 60.
Excellent food with a great atmosphere.
Pizza can just be pizza, but this is amazing! And get the brussel sprouts!
Solid beer menu and good service - though we were there early, and it wasn't busy. Specifically went for chicken and waffles, which weren't great (2 slabs of fried chicken breast on a plain Belgian, all overcooked), but the 10 Spice Wings were.
Great food and a TON of beer selection from craft breweries! The food options are definitely unique compared to your typical bar menu which makes it so much more enjoyable to be three and hang out with friends and catch up especially on a hectic day.
Ambiance was very lively, almost uncomfortably loud. You could tell people who had come to sit down for dinner were a little frustrated not to be able to speak to one another over the noise. This is definitely a place you come to for the bar, not for sit down dinner. Food is an odd mix, but everything we ordered was good. Service needed work. Cups were always empty. We had to request drinks/water a few times. Dishes were brought out but never collected so we had piles of dishes we eventually asked for another waiter to clear some space. Runners were not able to communicate to patrons. Came out confused in dish order. When we tried to help just took food back and forth three times before server came out to organize. A few kinks in communication. Has potential, but needs to train staff to work together more efficiently.
First time from being out of town. Great food, service and overall. The margarita pizza was excellent!!!
The service and food were amazing! The ricotta whipped appetizer was so tasty, we had to order another round!
I definitely enjoyed City tap! Great beer selection, good food, my boyfriend is still raving about his burger.
Hostess was very rude because she was having trouble finding our reservation. I even showed her my email. Not friendly at all. Waitress had a somewhat better personality.
Loved our meal at city tap house! Great beer list, excellent food, and a stellar vibe outside on the patio. All the fun with none of the pretense.
Great food and service but the music is always competing with any conversation----is it possible for music to return to background level? Love your restaurant
Our waiter was great!
I really liked the Smore's shots that were available on Labor Day. It would be cool if those could be added to the regular menu.
Great lunch in Boston. The Street Corn dip was amazing! Had the veggie burger and it was delicious. Pizza was excellent as well!
Fun night and good food!
Patio was really nice
We really enjoyed our night
The food was ok.. I did not think the food was worth the menu prices. Waitress was very nice.
Food and drinks were great, very nice but still casual environment. It was a bit too dark in there for a lunch setting and very loud making it hard to talk to others at your table. Also would be nice if the beer menu was on the table from the beginning instead of waiting on a server to bring it over
Sunday evening dinner with a few friends - even found a parking space right in front of the restaurant (downtown Boston). Everyone had something different and it was all excellent! Service was great, outdoor seating was very nice, with a non-obtrusive one-man band. Both the beer and whiskey selections were extensive.
Great place to bring together a large group of friends. The food was good and the service excellent. It was a little expensive versus the quality of food, so need rot consider this.
We came for weekend brunch and it was great. We got lucky that it wasn't too packed and were able to make a reservation the day of, although we've been in the past and the place does get very busy. The food menu is great, there are a lot of heavy (re: hangover curing) options, but there are some lighter and healthier ones as well. The variety on the menu was great since it met everyone's needs at our table.
We sat outside when we ate and the outdoor area is nice and large, since Boston doesn't have a ton of options for outdoor dining this is a good choice since the patio is large and you have a greater chance of snagging a table.
As it's made denotes, City Tap has an awesome beer list, it made it hard to choose what to drink since there were so many great options. Great cocktail list too, as well as snacks and small plates if you're just in the mood for a few drinks and snacks.
Great apps, dinner and drinks. Impressive beer and spirits list, including a few bourbon gems!
What a great find, but the only downside is that it is too noise inside if you come as a group. It is hard to have a conversation unless someone is very close to you. Otherwise, highly recommended.
Great food and atmosphere. Entertainer was terrific.
Only drawback .... waitress was slow. Took forever to get drinks.
Will be back!
My favorite restaurant in the area. The places right on the water know that tourists will flock there anyway and really don't try that hard. You can't actually see the ocean from here but the old pier 4 is a block down the street and you could easily fit City Tap before or after a waterfront stroll.
I find their various mussel dishes a refreshing alternative to the deep fried or boiled clams of other places. Went with a very large group and we covered most the menu and everyone enjoyed what they got. I'll be going back for the Spanish pepperoni pizza a couple times a month at least.
Service was perfect. Everyone was gracious and accommodating. Out of twenty guest my beer glass wasn't empty for more than a moment, and I sure was trying ;)
A note on noise level; it varies, the dining area and side room were just right for dinner conversation. The bar and patio were more energetic for enjoying sports or the live music on the patio. They'll be a spot for either mood you're looking for.
Good beer menu, solid food, with a young crowd.
Second visit, brought a colleague for lunch. Noisy but everything else was A+. Had crab hushpuppies, and crab melt. delicious! My colleague said his French dip was fantastic. Highly recommend! (just wish there was some soundproofing!)
We had a good sized group (10ppl) getting together for a few drinks, on the day-of, we ended up having 2 extra people show up - yikes! We were nervous about space/seating since the place was so busy but the staff was amazing and made the adjustment quickly and with hesitation - thank you City Tap! :)
