    The Little Tap House is a great find in Portland, ME. The ambiance is lovely and the food was delicious! We had the pretzels for an appetiser and then the lobster roll, one hot and one cold, for our dinners. Excellent! The staff were very attentive and friendly.

    I ate here for the first time last night, and I can't say enough good things about my experience. The menu was not extensive, but everything we had (bibb salad with tomatoes/chevre and fish + chips) was outstanding. The ingredients were fresh, local, and full of flavor. We had roasted peaches with Chantilly cream for dessert - it was divine. On top of the perfectly prepared food, our server could not have been any friendlier. He was very conscientious about not rushing our courses and encouraged us to take our time throughout the meal. I will definitely be back!

    Yummy spot that can cater to larger parties. We came in here 8 people deep and received awesome service and all the food was yummy! The drinks were also delicious and same with the cider from Vermont! Would definitely go back here when we are in Portland again.

    Very limited menu and they were out of the fish special at 7 pm on a Friday. Good place to stop for a beer but not sure it's farm -to-table as advertised.

    Only a half block from our Airbnb, this was a no-brainer to try. It had outside dining, but it was just off street, so we opted for inside. After shuffling around for 10 mins, the hostess finally figured out that she actually do have a table for us. We had a 7:15 teddy, but we were 15 mins early. The waitress who served us was very good, juggling her outside and inside tables deftly and always with a smile. There was no part of our dinner that was rushed or delayed. The food was very good. Ample serving of beef in the steak frites. If we were to go out again for dinner, we would have gone back, but no time. I would recommend this restaurant.

    Waiting 15 minutes after being seated for server to acknowledge us. Food was slow to come out and very bland. They were out of one of the entries we ordered. Drinks were not refilled. The restaurant seemed understaffed and had Avery uninspiring menu. It is a wonder they are still in business.

    The mom and daughter team are awesome. The drinks were good and original. The food was good but not exceptional. It is a very nice atmosphere and welcoming. Our service was a bit inattentive but i can't blame any service given short staff at every restaurant.

    Reservations were for 5:15 pm outside. We arrived early, chose not to dine outside because of the noise and there was an odor of swill outside. Host accommodated us easily and we sat inside. The room/location of our table was very nice but too warm. Could have had better a/c or air circulation. The wait staff was fantastic! House red wine during happy hour was nice. Drinks/beer was good. Food was good. A bit pricey for quality. The Scottish Egg and Cole Slaw was SUPERB! The fish [& chips] coating was a bit too crunchy, the yogurt/cumin sauce on scallops was not particularly good and our other appetizers & entrees were just satisfactory. Expected a bit more for the price. Overall a nice experience.

    Brianna was a great server. Very accommodating and attentive. The high top at which we were seated was under a pipe/vent that was leaking/sweating.which prompted me to change seats at our high top. Food was excellent and the meal paced nicely to allow for an enjoyable and relaxing dinner with my wife.

    Lovely restaurant with friendly and attentive service. Mussels were exquisite, fresh and perfectly cooked. As expected, the lobster roll was delicious and the crispy but soft centered French fries were the perfect accompaniment. Will definitely return whenever in Portland.

    Great spot for dinner with colleagues! Food is exceptionally elevated, but also approachable for all guests. The 14 Maine brews on tap make tasting and trying local styles fun. They even offer beer flights. Friendly and personable staff along with a cozy interior makes this establishment a true neighborhood gem. A don't miss while in Portland!

    We live locally and had wanted to try Little Tap House for awhile. We had reservations for 7 and wanted to sit outside, 4 tables open. We were told our table was already set up inside for us. They don’t take reservations for outside after 5:30 so they weren’t reserved but okay. Server seemed stressed, probably understaffed, we ordered apps and drinks but was told we had to order our entrées at the same time. Seemed strange but okay. Limited entrée selections but we all choose fish and chips. Apps and drinks were very good but none of us cared for the entrée. We all took most of the breading off, very thick, to enjoy the fish. Maybe sitting at the bar and just getting apps and drinks if we return.

    There is just something so unbelievably charming about this cozy neighborhood restaurant. It really makes you feel like a local! The service is warm and attentive, cocktails on point, and the food is 5 star dining without the ego. Tonight I had the Halibut special and learned that the Chef goes to the waterfront each morning to select and cut the fish he wants to use for the evening. There is such care and preparation in the execution of his dishes - they are truly masterpieces. (And so delicious!) This was one of the best meals I’ve had in Portland in a long time. A do-not-miss!
