Our visit was on Christmas Eve. It was perfect. Waitress was wonderful! She gave us recommendations and was very attentive. The ambiance was VERY relaxing - exactly what we were looking for. The food was DELICIOUS! filet mignon and the chicken-n-waffles.

Always such a great time at Tap. The food is always on point along with the ambiance. Most importantly the service! Nicole our server knew when to be there when we needed her and went above and beyond with service. Get it Nicole! Thanks Tap 42 for having us.

One of our favorite restaurants in Broward County. The food is consistently delicious, and the fish is always perfectly fresh. Servers are professional and will customize entrées as requested, including accommodating dietary restrictions.

Mainly, there is a fabulous selection of interesting craft beers on tap and in bottles/cans, with half a dozen rotating taps. Moscow mules on tap are also delicious.

It’s a great place to bring a big group. Huge outdoor dining area available. Wheelchair accessible. Ample parking in the neighborhood when the lot is full. Valet also available.

Extremely highly recommended.

We went there for the Bell’s beer. Tap 42 in Davie is much closer but didn’t carry Bells. The beer was worth the drive. Quinoa salad with salmon was delicious. Chicken with cilantro rice was ok, not a fan. It was about the Beer.

Honestly a really disappointing experience. I used to come here all the time a few years ago and it’s really gone downhill. The server was lovely but it didn’t make up for the overpriced poor food.

The food was amazing, the service however wasn’t the best. Out waitress barely appeared at the table plus it took her more than 20 minutes to come back to take us the order, however I’m not disappointed since the food was just amazing.

When we were sat down, we were sitting for about 15 minutes and no one came over to us to take our drink orders. After about 15 minutes we grabbed a waitresses attention (she wasn’t the waitress who was supposed to be servicing us) and asked if anyone was coming to our table. We were supposed to have a guy waiter who was serving the table next to us but we were completely ignored by him. The waitress that served us was amazing but the initial wait time to even get water was disappointing.

My absolute favorite brunch spot! Get there early, they fill up fast. The food and drinks (especially the tap list) is superb! Their breakfast sandwich with truffle oil is the best there is! Can't wait to be back in a few weeks for my birthday!

Whenever I am in Fort Lauderdale for business I make sure I drop by Tap 42. The space is lovely (I almost always sit outside), the staff friendly and enthusiastic and I love the bowls! I'm sure I'll be back (as usual)...

This is one of our go-to places! Need to find street parking close by, but that’s no big deal!
Love the tuna poke salad (actually too big), salmon bowl, and many other dishes. Servers are great, outdoor seating is super (giant fans). Prices very fair, good cocktails, only complaint is the music is usually too loud.

I am not interested going there for the next time because it was raining and they gave us a table for the outside under an umbrella instead there was other tables under the large umbrella. All the food is being served got wet.
