The Nickel Taphouse Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I took our 15 year old, 7 year old, and my 72 year old parents there for dinner. There was food that everyone really enjoyed and that can be hard with our group. They have some fun food that is unique like sweet and spicy garbanzo beans (amazing) and duck wings (tasty). The traditional eaters were more than satisfied with their burger and fries. Lots of different choices on drinks and a wide variety of beer options. We want to hit a Tuesday for their $12 burger and beer special!
$14.00 for a WEDGE SALAD.........OUTRAGIOUS!!
$9.95 FOR OYSTERS ROCKAFELLER... A VALUE FOR 6 WHICH IS EXPECTED...WHAT ABOUT 3.
NOTHING LISTED ON MENU THAT SAID 3. DON'T YOU THINK ALL IF NOT MOST RESTAURANTS ALWAYS SERVE 6?
ENTREES TASTY, BUT. SMALL PORTIONS
The food tasted very good. Unfortunately, the steak had to be sent back because instead of medium rare, it was medium raw. I enjoyed the scallops dish, but thought it was overpriced for the amount of food on the dish. There were three large scallops and a few pieces of broccolini for $28. Some kind of starch and/or more broccolini should have been included. It was early in the evening, but they had run out of scallops so only of us could order it.
I usually like the food here. I ordered the mushroom “cheesesteak”. There was maybe a total of 2 mushrooms-sliced super thin with lots of onions on the bottom of the bread and lettuce and tomato. The mushroom filling should have been at least 3 x what it was! Very skimpy!
Four of us had dinner at Nickel Taphouse. The restaurant has an extensive draft beer menu and interesting food options. We started with deviled eggs with bacon jam as a starter. Then, we enjoyed beef on 'weck sandwiches and turkey burgers. Service was friendly and attentive.
Poor service...they didn’t seem to have enough wait staff. My friend and I had Lamberger‘s that were terrible and tasteless. Our sons had regular burgers that they seem to enjoy but it’s not hard to please a bunch of college kids when you take them out to dinner. The beer was excellent and I wish I enjoyed the food more because it had potential started out strong
Nickel Taphouse started out with a bang, but is seeming to fizzle lately. Prices are higher, food options are being more restrictive (no veggie burger?), and everything now comes with bacon. Maybe it should be called "Bacon Taphouse". Anyway, beer selection is decent but never seems to change. I hope they pull it out of the nosedive.
The menu did not disclose pork in the ingredients. Unfortunately the place is dark, with dark ceilings and dark wood furnishings. It was a few bites in before I realized the problem. Even the server had to go ask the kitchen about the contents of the dish, when it should have been known both explicitly on the menu and by the server. You don't put out high-end food like this and not be clear about meat on the menu. The server seemed apologetic but unconcerned. For some of us that's a show-stopper, a real reason not to return. It's unfortunate because the beer and drinks were good. And as a final kick, the server took my beer without asking, before I was finished. Another bad decision.
Go here if you want great food! Yes they have great liquor Don't know how they smoke kohlrabi to taste like bacon but you need to taste it in the carbonara pasta dish. Loved the soft shell crab with grill d veggies and peaches on blue corn grits. Though I did not see any of the promised grilled veggies on the dish the peaches made me not care. Inventive dishes that made my mouth sing. We were downtown for meetings and glad we ventured out for the food here.
I hope the locals cherish this place because it is a gem!
My wife's Salmon came out raw in the middle; just like jelly. I specifically told the waiter we do not like raw or even medium fish. We sent it back and got same result. Manager got involved and they used a new cut of salmon with same result.....raw. Finally gave up and ordered well done pork roast. It was good. Melon salad was huge pile of lettuce with minimal melon and no flavor....no nuts, bacon or anything like olives etc. My burger was pretty flavorless but I ate it and got out. All this for $75....not even an offer for desert or coffee for awful service and food. We won't return, and this was not our first visit....quite a way to spend a 25th anniversary!!!
