Sunday brunch was great! Bottomless mimosas and the food was delish! The staff was friendly and welcoming and our waitress checked on us often but not over the top!

The service was great but the food was just ok. Food (eggs) came out cold. Avocado spread tasted like cheap Trader Joe’s guac.

The wait time at our preferred restaurant was over an hour so we opted to take our two grandkids to Stove and Tap. Big mistake. The menu was one side of one page. Nothing looked good. Decided to start with apps.
The nacho chips with chicken were devoid of cheese, peppers, and any thing good. The wings were ok. The Mac and cheese was dry and chewy.
Our server was nice but not experienced. The whole atmosphere was sports bar done poorly.

Needless to say we stopped with just apps and won’t return. Too bad. Great location and good venue. Needs major attention.

Had dinner with a group of 4 adults. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food came out as ordered and was hot. Between the 4 of us, we got the nachos with chicken, 2 pizzas, tacos and the brisket dip sandwich. Portions were good sized, we all had leftovers. Will be going back again.

We went for our anniversary dinner. Loved the burger bomb, the brussel sprouts, the pork bao buns, and the fried cheese. The peppers with the fried cheese were hot. Our only complaint was just that we would have liked more water and didn’t see our waitress for awhile. But the food was superb! A $20 burger is pricey, but it was good for a special occasion.

The service was excellent. Appetizers were very good. We had brisket Mac & cheese. The main course was mediocre at best. I had pesto roasted salmon, which didn’t have any pesto or seasoning of any kind on it. It was clearly farm raised so very bland. There was maybe a teaspoon of pesto dripped around the outside edge of the plate. My husband had Indian seasoned steak which he said had very little seasoning. His main course also was mediocre. Drinks were excellent. Husband had an old fashion that was excellent & I had a glass of Sauvignon blanc which was a very generous poor. I would definitely go back & try another dish as everything else was outstanding.

Poor attention from waitress, poor food, incorrect bill (that was fixed), over priced for quality of experience. Food was much too salty, some members waited 5 minutes longer for food to arrive, BBQ Korean pork was extremely fatty.

Overall, we had a nice lunch out but it's obvious that some of the waitstaff are still getting their bearings. It was mid-afternoon when we arrived so only a few tables were occupied but the server kept pulling a Houdini. We were seated promptly but did not immediately realize that the menu was virtual. Three of the four of us were unable to get the QR code to even work though. So, after about 5 minutes of trying to access the menu, our server came over with waters and we requested paper menus. That took some time because they did not have any printed and had to print them out. Then we had to wait to ask clarifying questions about food/drinks. It probably took 20 minutes just to get drinks on the table. Additionally, she served my husband a cold can of beer with a warm/hot glass. I understand that it had probably just come out of the dishwasher but that seemed silly to me. When he asked for a cool glass, they said they had none. So, he had to dump his ice water in the hot glass so he could use that one for his beer. The server was very nice and she expressed apologies at every turn, but it seemed like maybe she was inexperienced?

The previous reviewer is accurate about the menu being somewhat limited; however, the quality of that food more than makes up for the number of options! Once the food arrived, we were glad that we had waited. I'd love to try this place again for the food but I'm not sure that I will because the service left much to be desired.

The weak link(s) were the food and the limited tap list. I expected a place called "Stove and Tap" to offer a wider array of draft options. The appetizers and the Po Boy were good, but the Shrimp salad was subpar. Not much flavor.

The tuna tacos and brisket dip were awesome, but the nachos need some work if they are expected to be a staple on the menu. The chips were good but the amount of cheese was sparse and the beans were sprinkled on one by one, with no more than 15 of them on the entire plate. Great spot so I hope the nachos get an update.
