Loved it here. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Food is delicious! Will definitely go back!
Lovely neighborhood restaurant with a quality menu excellently prepared and warm friendly service
Excellent service, great beer selections, and incredible seafood and appetizers!
Great Food, Great ambiance we had so much fun and enjoyed everything!
Always amazing! Lee and Bri are fabulous! We always enjoy a great meal, tasty drinks and a fun lively atmosphere. Whether entertaining friends or for a weeknight nosh, it’s our neighborhood go-to. Highly recommend!
This was the last place we dined before Covid shut everything down. Happy to say that things are great as ever. Food and service both great! Everyone was so friendly. Highly recommended!
What a great experience. Food was Amazing as was the service. I was so happy that they re-opened after C-19. We’ve never had a bad experience here
Friendly and informal setting. We opted to sit outside so traffic made it a bit noisy but that was our choice. Every single staff member was extremely pleasant. Food came out quickly and was delicious. Also easy to find parking on a Saturday for an early dinner. Happy hour wine and beer selections were good too.
Great food and friendly, excellent service. Love this place.
From the time we entered until the end of our leisurely meal, we were warmly greeted and treated to friendly service. If you are a fan of scallops, make sure you order the Scallops St. Jacques. The tarragon cream sauce perfectly complemented the perfectly-cooked scallops. We will certainly return to this excellent restaurant that successfully blends the feeling of a neighborhood pub with that of a fine restaurant.
Our waitress was so sweet! She knew we were hungry and brought fries over to the table for us while we wait. She was a sweetheart!!
Decent, albeit uninspired, food. Not worth the price, however. Ambiance was pretty nice and service OK, but took 50 minutes to get food on our table.
Great food and service. Wonderful find.
Great service, awesome menu and great beer selection- everything was delicious!
Busy but good. Waiter was kept hopping because he had too many tables.
Great fun and food for first time. Sit down menu was slightly different from what was online, but still great choices. The duck was a little dry but the skin was fantastic! Great cocktails and wine. Will definitely be back for another dinner date or any day occasion!
Fabulous experience for Sunday brunch. We ordered mimosas,French toast special and frittata special. All was excellent and well prepared. The best item was the Caesar salad with Brussel sprouts and kale. Absolutely the best salad ever! We’ll Be back.
Awesome will definitely be going back! Highly recommended
Cozy, good food & great service.
Love the atmosphere.
We all loved our food. Great place.
Restaurant week. Good selections. Friendly staff
We have been to Little Tap house many times in the past - about 2-3 times a year. The food is always good, but his time we rated the food as very very good. We tend to share appetizers for dinner. there were 4 of us. We had Ruben spring rolls with a spiced thousand Island dipping sauce, deviled eggs with maple, bacon and coffee dusting, and Truffle french fries. We also split the Scallop bowl, and a Scallop dinner. Everything was very well prepared, and excellent.
Great meal! If you have a larger group they push circular tables together which is a little awkward, but service is great, and they have a great beer selection.
I walked over from the Holiday for a lite evening meal. Ordered their version of Chicken Liver Mouse spread and they served it with toasted pita bread. Paired with a dark beer and I was very happy!
Very loud. Very hot in the dining area. “Ran out of Stoli”.
Had the beer battered haddock which was passable. Scallop bowl was also passable. However, the mussels were way overthought. No need for all the ingredients in the mussels. Keep it simple with a nice garlic and lemongrass sauce.
I had higher expectations for the food. The Kale Salad was excellent. Deviled Eggs were rubbery with not much flavor. Oysters appetizer special was extremely salty, first time in our lives we left oysters behind. Truffle Fries were very good but were then drizzled with something sweet and red which was not necessary.
Great waitstaff. Bartender was pretty solemn - never saw a smile or even much eye contact as we ordered drinks while waiting for our table. Everyone has an off day. We didn’t take offense. Just kind of a bummer starting the evening.
We ordered off the main menu for Valentine’s Day. We started with the mussels (highly recommend). Hubby had the Haddock and fries and I had the petit filet. My filet came out in two portions and both were overcooked. I received a glass of wine on the house as a result. I would definitely go back as this could have been a fluke (everything else was tasty) and we did enjoy Scott, our waiter.
Wish we had gotten photos, but we were just wanting to enjoy our weekend getaway together.
Wonderful menu for Valentines Day... a true treat.
Loved the lollipop chicken wings in a honey sriracha sauce. Enjoyed our salmon and filet mignon entrees but the house made desserts were the best!!! Mud pie was not heavy and dense just packed with chocolate goodness!
LTH fish and chips with Bissell Bros Substance. Just had it for lunch! Perfectly fried and very tasty cole slaw and tartar sauce. As always, service was great.
We came here for a brunch on a Saturday with a reservation but didn’t need one- place just opened so was very quiet. Our server was super nice and attentive. The food was awesome and the mimosas weren’t bad either ;) definitely would recommend if your looking for a yummy brunch.
Hands down the best deviled eggs in town! One of my favorite places.
Great atmosphere. Friendly staff and owner. Food overall was wonderful. Had scallops and found them to be a little too salty. Would like to see a little more variety in the cocktail menu.
Our service was excellent and the food was absolutely outstanding. This is my favorite place to eat in Portland and I wish I could eat here every day
Little Tap House is one of our local neighborhood go-to gems. It gets a little noisy when it’s crowded, but that’s okay. Great service, reliable food, good location. I don’t drink beer but it looks like a destination for beer connoisseurs.
Little Tap House never disappoints! Delicious menu, great drink options and wonderful staff!
First timer. We really enjoyed the attentive service. Also the menu spans from basic (outstanding burger) to eclectic small plates. We’ll be back!
