    Great spot for dinner with colleagues! Food is exceptionally elevated, but also approachable for all guests. The 14 Maine brews on tap make tasting and trying local styles fun. They even offer beer flights. Friendly and personable staff along with a cozy interior makes this establishment a true neighborhood gem. A don't miss while in Portland!

    We live locally and had wanted to try Little Tap House for awhile. We had reservations for 7 and wanted to sit outside, 4 tables open. We were told our table was already set up inside for us. They don’t take reservations for outside after 5:30 so they weren’t reserved but okay. Server seemed stressed, probably understaffed, we ordered apps and drinks but was told we had to order our entrées at the same time. Seemed strange but okay. Limited entrée selections but we all choose fish and chips. Apps and drinks were very good but none of us cared for the entrée. We all took most of the breading off, very thick, to enjoy the fish. Maybe sitting at the bar and just getting apps and drinks if we return.

    The food was not as expected. Portland usually very good restaurants. Small menu so expected food to be the best it was ordinary. The only taste was all the salt they use even in the coleslaw

    There is just something so unbelievably charming about this cozy neighborhood restaurant. It really makes you feel like a local! The service is warm and attentive, cocktails on point, and the food is 5 star dining without the ego. Tonight I had the Halibut special and learned that the Chef goes to the waterfront each morning to select and cut the fish he wants to use for the evening. There is such care and preparation in the execution of his dishes - they are truly masterpieces. (And so delicious!) This was one of the best meals I’ve had in Portland in a long time. A do-not-miss!

    Pretty good meal. Chicken wings and lamb croquettes were the best. The server was a bit sassy and not as helpful as I think she could have been. I kindly asked her to please split my Burger in two and she said, “it’s soft enough to cut (for me to do it myself).” I really don’t know why that small courtesy is difficult to complete. Overall, ok experience.

    Went for the roasted brussel sprouts - while tasty they were not what expected...... did not seem roasted at all, no crispiness, consistency was as if they had been steamed and expected blue cheese crumbles... but got a sauce instead. Overall pretty good just fell short of expectations and the "eat drink lucky" photo that got us there. Fantastic atmosphere

    Great place for food and drink. We were immediately greeted and seated. Had a choice of bar seating, high tops or a regular table. We ordered pasta with clams and thai chili wings. Wonderfully prepared. Had a few wines as well at happy hour prices 4PM to 6PM. Be sure to mention the happy hour request.

    We aren't from Portland, so we found the place by happenstance because our first choice was booked. The atmosphere was cozy on a cold, rainy day. Both my meal and my wife's was very good. The Brussel sprout appetizer was slightly underdone, but still tasty. The service was very good. We agreed it would be nice to have a place like this near us, and we live near Portsmouth.

    The food and drinks were excellent, especially the risotto and the swordfish. Our server was just the right amount of bubbly, very helpful and knowledgeable. Top notch! The vibe is fantastic and we did not feel crowded, for a very busy fairly small room.

    My experience was okay. Food was average, nothing special. Kind of disappointed in the poutine. Not enough cheese curds and the gravy was very salty. They were out of the Sangria, so I ordered a specialty tequila drink and it was very strong. Service was good and the ambiance was great.
