Made a reservation but when we walked up to the hostess she informed us that they only had lounge or bar seats available. Service was slow and the food in my opinion was over priced for what was given to us. Won't be coming back anytime soon.

I really love the ambiance especially sitting outdoors. The environment is welcoming and me and my husband enjoyed ourselves. The only issue I had was that the wait time for the food and I really didn’t like how anyone could just smoke wherever they felt like it. It would be a great idea to have a smoking section for those that smoke. Other then that I enjoyed myself.

We always have a good experience at Tap 42. These is enough gastropub variation to be able to satisfy all of the various dietary requirements of friends we meet there... and every variation is very good.

I usually enjoy my meals at Tap42 but on this occasion my food was awful. I ordered the Salmon Bowl and it taste like the chef poured a bottle of soy sauce on everything. The food was not edible. I’m still shocked.

I was introduced to this place by my wife. We’ve since been here 3X within a months time. We have not been disappointed, even the carry out is great!
The chicken and waffles- although they come with tenders ( i prefer bone chicken) the waffles deserves an award!!

Great place, patio music was BLARING. I like the vibe but a few volume notches, would still be plenty loud, and I'd be able to hear my guests better. Food was outstanding!

I had high expectations based on the crowd I’ve seen and the look of the place, extremely disappointed in the food. Ordered a $27 skirt steak and I received a $4 skirt steak portion. I thought It was a joke at first. Haven ate at many Argentinian restaurants and being served a real skirt steak I find this place laughable

Be sure to ask about special release and seasonal beers. We've had some exceptional and unique beers.
Homemade chicken tenders are outstanding.

3 of us we waited an hour for our steaks and truffle Mac and cheese, the Mac had so much truffle oil that it was inedible.. tasted like gasoline.. it was bad, our medium rare steaks were all well done and dry and we couldn’t get steak sauce bc our waitress was too busy to check on us and ask how our food turned out. We were starving to death so we ate a few bites of steak anyway. Drinks were great, calamari was tender and would’ve been great if it wasn’t way over salted. At the end of the meal when our waitress was grabbing our plates of half eaten dry steaks and full portions of Mac we asked for our bill I had to tell the waitress how bad our food turned out. She replied with “I didn’t cook it” and brought the bill. Although this place has a cool atmosphere and drinks, my friends and I agreed that we will never go there again. :(
