    The Sunday brunch music was great. The service was outstanding. The place was clean and beautiful. The limited menu was very calorie heavy. They need to offer greens and lighter menu items. My burrito seemed to appear more like a chimichanga and was a bit too rich for me. The prices were more than reasonable but the offerings were more bar food than boutique brunch. The place is really made for people under 60, and we brought a few older people. Everyone had a great time.

    My husband and I visited this restaurant for the first time today. It was an absolutely amazing experience from the service to the food to the music. I have not one complaint. If you love biscuits and gravy like me, this is the pace to go. The jazz band trio was electric and I am now ready to come hear this trio ever Sunday.

    I made a reservation for their Sunday jazz brunch to take my parents who were in town for my brother’s wedding reception. 1) our server was very impatient and could not read the room, so to speak. 2) NO HOT COFFEE. They only have cold brew. I ended up walking down to the nearest Starbucks and getting coffee and bringing it back for my folks. 3) My mom’s food came out lukewarm. She ordered the chicken and waffles. They took the plate back and likely just popped it in the microwave because upon return, the waffles were SO tough that it was a chore and a half to cut them. 4) The mimosa was ok…nothing to write home about. The orange slice for garnish was spoiled. 5) The host was super sweet! Definitely a gem :)

    it was a great day for brunch and jazz music was awesome. The food was good but not great the chicken and waffles was dry suggestion to use some butter or honey even if it is offered on the side it had no flavor at all but the skillet was very flavorful i will be returning but not to have chicken and waffles. the mimosa flight and Md bloody mary was excellent and the entire staff is awesome they feel like family.

    The service was perfect; we were served in a timely fashion, the wait staff was attentive and the food was was a good price. The drinks were well made and got my friends and I happy. My one concern is my chicken tenders were tough and the portion size was small.

    They didn’t have a lot of options for the brunch . They had all pork and no substitutes. The taste of what we had was good , but didn’t have substitutes so we missed out on the meat. They did have chicken and waffles which were good.

    Usually I enjoy the food at Brass Tap but on this occasion (Brunch) I left disappointed. I ordered the breakfast sliders and the food had no seasoning and the biscuits were dry. My friend ordered the medallion pancakes and they were totally frozen. They beverages were on point but the kitchen should add salt and pepper to the food.
