    One of the worst dining experiences we’ve had in awhile. Food was pricey and mediocre. The service was horrible. Our group’s food orders were completely wrong and one order came 15 minutes after the rest of the table. We will not return.

    A bit disappointing. Beer selection and by the one flights are fun. We would come back for that, but not for the food and service. Viewing the menu and ordering for yourself on the tabletop tablet is not a great service experience. Food was very pricey for portion size and taste.

    This was perhaps the worst dining experience I have ever had. 5 of us went for brunch The service was literally non-existent and they brought out orders out one at a time (with about 10 minutes in between each persons order). I had to go up and ask for coffee twice before they brought it and forget getting a refill. Before they would even take your order you had to hand over a credit card that they linked to your bill with no option for more than one person paying for the whole bill. The food was just ok but the experience was horrible. Shocked they are still in business. Went way beyond being understaffed.

    Overall first time experience was good. Food was good but not excellent. Drinks were great! However, I don’t usually mind a loud environment but it seemed like our neighboring tables were having shouting contests making it hard for my partner and I to hear each other and we too had to nearly shout at each other. I would love to come again anyway overall i like the concept

    The margarita flight was lots of fun flavors! I ordered the margherita flatbread, which did the trick in filling me up but it was very saucy. My friends got the popcorn shrimp or something shrimp with jalapeños and they said it was the best they ever had! Definitely coming back. Loved the alcohol concept they had in the restaurant too.

    I understand Evanston is a college town but insisted on getting a credit card before we even ordered was ridiculous. Server was great but there was an extra charge for salad dressing and salsa. $2 for 2 ounces of salsa ridiculous. This place could do much better.

    I would definitely return to Tapville Evanston and have plans to. I would suggest that there would be more options for people who want to enjoy/substitute and who have allergies. Otherwise, the ambiance and the experience was great. My mom and I enjoyed.

    From the moment we walked in, we were treated like part of the family! Anna greeted us with a beautiful smile and explained how it all worked. Karla, our server, was amazing as well. She was extremely knowledgeable about both drinks and food and made awesome suggestions. She makes a wicked Pear Bourbon Ginger! Ben kept our food flowing and the manager stopped to talk with us. The flights are gorgeous to look at and better to drink and/or eat. We will be back! Thank you so much for a great night. We are still talking about it ;-) Susan F.

    Great date night location. Particularly if you would like to try different types of beers, this is a wonderful location. If you are not a beer drinker, there are other flight cocktails, sodas, and other drinks. The food is also wonderful and you will be sure to find something you will enjoy.

    Did NOT Love the fact that you walk in and the very first thing they ask you for is your credit card so that they can give you a little charge card to use in the restaurant. It was very difficult to split our dinners pay for our dinners with this type of system. In addition when we went to check out you don’t even know how much is on your tab. It’s a little too kitschy. Would be fine if they would just allow people to dine and pay. Weird weird concept

    Ana is the nicest server, and considerate, talkative, and informative. It was a great experience for my friend Julie and I. The front doors?/windows were open and the nice weather made it that much better. I grew up on Evanston, and the downtown has changes dramatically since I was a kid. Class of 81 @ ETHS. Anywho, great experience for me, and the yummy flight of sour lemonade were fabulous (a lil tipsey! It's cashless. Credit card used for the card you get. You put the card in the slot by that dispenser, drink(s) of your choice from beer (lots), ciders and Sangria...I'll be back for the Sangria selections.

    First time trying their food. It was amazing! Everyone was so friendly and their food is really good. I recommend their fried pickles :) I like how they have a self serve for alcoholic drinks. It’s very cool how you use it.
