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.

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 experienced very poor customer service which was not something I had expected. I had been to the restaurant before and had a wonderful experience, which is why I went back. However, we were not greeted or treated with a high level of respect.

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!).

I've been here a handful of times. Beer selection is broad, but not terribly deep. Our waiter crossed up one beer order, but the IPA he brought me was something I hadn't had before, and a pleasant surprise. We ordered off of the app menu; pretzels were a little under done, chicken wings a little over done. Had to flag our server down for beer refills.

The food was excellent and the service was event better. There are more beers on tap, than you have friends.
Understanding it was a popular evening, we made reservations through the website. The process was super easy. When we arrived, we were seated immediately.
