We decided to give this restaurant a second chance and were let down a second time. This restaurant desperately needs a manager on the floor. I'm not sure why the Pearl Jam station was blaring during dinner time like we were in a Night club. We asked for our wings to be well done and they actually came out before our drinks! Not well done!!! The Flat bread dinner was nothing more than a dry piece of burned bread not including what it was supposed to have on it, which they gladly removed from the bill. We quickly realized why the place was empty and not because everyone is away on vacation!!!
I suggest reaching out to Gordon Ramsey and having his show Kitchen Nightmares give you a makeover!

Pizza crust was thin , light & flaky & cooked through—unlike the processed doughs w/ stabilizers that most pizza places use for their pies !

The food is always very good and the new summer additions to the menu are amazing, so delicious. As always the beer menu is great and the summer cocktail menu has some great add ins as well. Love sitting at the bar again to eat and it was just an overall great night!!!!

Food was very good (roasted broccoli salad and creme brulee), but the food took too long to get to the table. Great selection of beers!

We enjoy the Taphouse and this time was no different. The food was great and so was the service. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. It feels like home.

Food was awful. My wife had the teriyaki chicken sandwich with uncooked grilled onions, i had the hanger steak with Korrs gravy dumped on it.

Not a return visit for us.

On the bright side, the local Wayne beer (IPA) on tap was excellent.

I made a reservation for my husband and I. The unfriendly hostess sat us inside ( as requested on the reservation . We waited and waited and finally after 15 minutes a overworked-looking waitress took our drink order. We waited another 10 minutes and saw her heading outside with drinks for an outdoor table . There was another table trying to flag her down to pay the bill. We left after 30 minutes with no service.

The staff was incredibly terrible. I understand no one can find workers now…and the forever wait for service didn’t bother me because I understand, as I’m also in the service industry. The problem was the waitress and her attitude. She needs to learn how to speak to people. Don’t talk to us like we’re idiots. She got more than one chance to make me feel like I wasn’t just hearing her wrong when she spoke to us. Her “wit” lost her 4 desserts we would have added, additional drinks, and ultimately the tip she would have gotten compared to what was left. Less obnoxious mouth = heavier purse next time.

Went for Mother's Day. The food was great, servers were super helpful and timing of everything was appropriate. They had a nice Mother's Day menu special, but you could also order off of the regular menu as well. Nothing but great things to say!

Wings were small and not made fresh. Not sis he just poured on them. Not crispy at all. . All the food seemed pre made and just reheated. Had the special enchilada and the cheese on top was hard as a rock and burnt.

First thing we were told is we have 90 minutes to eat...which is fine but maybe say it nicely. Then we got seated between two big parties and couldn't hear each other. The food was delicious though!

Food was very good and server was attentive. The only downside was that it was very noisy, even at only 50% capacity, and I could barely hear our server. I would go back again though.

This was our first time dining at The Taphouse - Wayne. I've always known the location as the French Hill Inn and have rarely found it to be a pleasant experience when a new owner takes over a place that was well-known and well-loved. This is definitely an exception to that maxim. The Taphouse is now a destination restaurant for me and my wife. We loved everything about it. The service was excellent, the surroundings were comfortable and the food was delicious and the portions were generous. We will definitely be back often.

Not sure what reservations are for any more. Have been here several times in past and everything was good. But yesterday I was told I would have to wait 10 minutes to be seated which was no problem they were extremely busy. Thirty minutes later we were never seated and host told us that being that I booked thru app we don’t get preferential seating and sat another party who came in 20 minutes after us. Ended up leaving. In future they should not take reservations if they don’t have seating. Hopefully they do better job with availability in future.
