Friday night, Braves away... started our night here at the battery for some beer and BBQ. We had a table near the bar and serviced by bar staff who did a fantastic job, 5-stars. Ambiance was good, lots of TVs to watch the game, with plenty of beer and food options.

We started with the half and half appetizer (pickle and jalapeños) where the breading was too thick and size of pickles and jalapeños cut was very thin and small. I'd pass on ordering this again, not worth taste or value.

Then we ordered ribs, brisket, smoked wings, and some sides. Brisket was amazing, we chose thick cut and fatty from the point. Seasoning was perfect and our table would rate 9 stars out of 10 (two thumbs up for sure).

The slab of ribs was average but tasted good (excellent rub), probably cooked much earlier and kept warm for evening service making them have some tug on the bite and very chewy. Wings average, more char (burn) than smoke flavor. All sides dishes, a bit disappointed... just bland, not tasty (salty collards, over mayo slaw, dry cornbread and jalapeño flavor lacking).

But overall, food and beer together was perfect. Bar staff was great. We definitely recommend to visit, but perhaps late afternoon or early evening for best quality on BBQ food.

Overall great experience. A little loud (no it wasn’t a game day) and the waiter forgot to put my wife’s order in but got it taken care of in a decent amount of time. Food was great as usual.

Arrived promptly at our appointment time on a Monday night... Not too busy inside and the server was friendly enough. Waiting 30 minutes to get our drinks because "the bar is backed up" is pretty disappointing... especially when it's just beer from a tap. Food was fine. Overall everything was just OK.

Always saw this as the gold standard in Atlanta for BBQ. Definitely a step down from the past. The brisket was dry and the sides were underwhelming. Other than a good location think I might spend my time at other BBQ restaurants.

Great place for a drink and a casual meal in a casual
atmosphere. We split a two meat dinner. My husband chose the brisket, and I went with the chicken. Food came out quick and was good. The flight pours are generous. It is legal to carry the beers out of the restaurant and walk around the ball park area.

Great spot for BBQ and only other full restaurant version of Fox Brother BBQ. Beer selection is obviously through the roof and ambiance of being near the stadium can't be beat. Easy to get reservations here at least on non-game days. Also good spot for game days as you can eat good food (or just grab a brew) and then walk right into the stadium.

I would have rated Terrapin Taproom 5 stars if the restaurant had booths and the food was freshly prepared. Our food was not hot when we received it, but the restaurant made it right and the food was delicious! The service was excellent!

Dining room wasn’t too full but for some reason they were sitting everyone close together in one small area. Seating was very crowded. Very noisy atmosphere, couldn’t carry on a conversation with my husband. Received our dinner very quickly but the bun was cold and the shredded pork was barely warm. Taste was ok but I’ve had better. Probably will not return.

I found the tap room to be below average.
Here are the reasons why...
1. New beers were out of stock. At least four or five new beers were “out”. This is suppose to be your lab or “taproom”
2. Only 1 choice for a dark or stout beer.
3. Service was extremely slow.
4. Had no simple appetizers, such as Salas and chips or dips.
5. Had to ask twice to have parking validated, even though it was an event night.
6. Was asked to show ID at bar, which was done. Carried the beer to the table. When requesting a refill. Was asked for ID again. I was still sipping the first beer. What’s up with that.
We may give it one more try , but not for awhile.
Sincerely

Thanks so much to the staff of the Terrapin Taproom! I made two reservations for my husband birthday for Saturday night and the team worked hard to ensure we sat together and out meals was excellent! They were out of ribs (I'm sure because its tasty) however we will be back to try them. I would recommend having events there. They took care of my party and we didn't have a long wait for food.

This was our first visit. We wanted to try out Terrapin beer so was happy we could visit the tap room at the park. We made reservations and enjoyed our outside table. The server was not attentive and the food was just okay but we loved the beer and atmosphere. Disappointed that I could not get a Terrapin shirt even at the clubhouse.

Not a very large menu or choices. We had this brisket tater tot appetizer which was more tater tots than actual meat. Disappointing. I ordered wings which were good. My husband ordered a burger which he said was excellent. The wine pour was on the skimpy side and pricey. Service was horrible and they weren’t at all
Busy. With many other restaurants in the immediate area I wouldn’t go back here.

I won't ever eat the again, so I won't say anything bad. Maybe it was just me. Chicken was undercooked and tasteless. No to go cups for us, but all the other tables had to go cups for their people.

We had a group of 12 people with a reservation. The restaurant was not crowded, but they still did not have our table ready until 30 minutes after our reservation time. Half of the table was almost done eating their dinner before the second half got theirs. That was only after one of our guests got up to find the server and ask where the food was. In fact he had to get up to find the server several times. Then when the check came, we were told they could only split it 4 ways which is ridiculous now because most other restaurants can split checks with no problem.

This was my second time here, and the food was not the same as it was the first time. More greasy and not the same amount of ingredients. Also the food took longer to get out this time even when we ordered the same. Might try again to see which day is normal, if the first time or my second time. The main host was really nice and friendly.

Yes but. They Fox Bros. Barbecue which is one of the best in ATL. But getting into Battery and parking. You have two hours to eat and finish, otherwise you get charged $20 for parking. Plus they only validate one parking ticket if you spend over $50 ( whic is not hard to do.

The food was okay. The menu should be so simple a child can read it. The child menu only had three items to choose from. At three that’s cool but at eight or older it’s not.
