    The margarita flight was lots of fun flavors! I ordered the margherita flatbread, which did the trick in filling me up but it was very saucy. My friends got the popcorn shrimp or something shrimp with jalapeños and they said it was the best they ever had! Definitely coming back. Loved the alcohol concept they had in the restaurant too.

    I understand Evanston is a college town but insisted on getting a credit card before we even ordered was ridiculous. Server was great but there was an extra charge for salad dressing and salsa. $2 for 2 ounces of salsa ridiculous. This place could do much better.

    I would definitely return to Tapville Evanston and have plans to. I would suggest that there would be more options for people who want to enjoy/substitute and who have allergies. Otherwise, the ambiance and the experience was great. My mom and I enjoyed.

    From the moment we walked in, we were treated like part of the family! Anna greeted us with a beautiful smile and explained how it all worked. Karla, our server, was amazing as well. She was extremely knowledgeable about both drinks and food and made awesome suggestions. She makes a wicked Pear Bourbon Ginger! Ben kept our food flowing and the manager stopped to talk with us. The flights are gorgeous to look at and better to drink and/or eat. We will be back! Thank you so much for a great night. We are still talking about it ;-) Susan F.

    Great date night location. Particularly if you would like to try different types of beers, this is a wonderful location. If you are not a beer drinker, there are other flight cocktails, sodas, and other drinks. The food is also wonderful and you will be sure to find something you will enjoy.

    Did NOT Love the fact that you walk in and the very first thing they ask you for is your credit card so that they can give you a little charge card to use in the restaurant. It was very difficult to split our dinners pay for our dinners with this type of system. In addition when we went to check out you don’t even know how much is on your tab. It’s a little too kitschy. Would be fine if they would just allow people to dine and pay. Weird weird concept

    Ana is the nicest server, and considerate, talkative, and informative. It was a great experience for my friend Julie and I. The front doors?/windows were open and the nice weather made it that much better. I grew up on Evanston, and the downtown has changes dramatically since I was a kid. Class of 81 @ ETHS. Anywho, great experience for me, and the yummy flight of sour lemonade were fabulous (a lil tipsey! It's cashless. Credit card used for the card you get. You put the card in the slot by that dispenser, drink(s) of your choice from beer (lots), ciders and Sangria...I'll be back for the Sangria selections.

    I didn't particularly appreciate that the actual paper menu was not available. I should have done further inquiry before making a reservation. That regular brand beer was not available. All of our food orders were long in being delivered except for one person and that person was halfway through before the other 4 people received their orders. Overall the restaurant was nice for those that like that type of atmosphere.

    I was excited to visit this place but was very disappointed. I had a reservation for 12pm was running behind so I called to let them know. Was seated around 12:18pm and no waiter came to us until around 12:40pm (which was the bartender/waiter) to tell us we can order at the tablet on the table. We ordered. Got drinks about 20 mins later and never got food. We pressed the help button on the table 2 times and no one came. We stopped a different waitress and she helped. By then, my flatbread was old and cold and my husband never got his food at all. They gave us free fries for the inconvenience which were also cold & old. At 2pm, we got so upset we just asked them to wipe our bill because we had another reservation to get to and now didn’t have time to eat. The only good thing about this place is the waitress who tried to help was nice and apologetic, they wiped our bill completely and gave us free desert for our anniversary which we were celebrating. The issue was lack of staff honestly. We were visiting Chicago and won’t ever be back to this place.

    Went for dinner. Loved it! Great food! Service was great! We had our own server which we liked, as opposed to ordering ourselves. She was wonderful! Our grandchildren were with us. They accommodated the kids with little things like fresh veggies and dip, and getting their food out quickly. There were 6 of us, and everything we ordered was delicious, from apps to dessert. I highly recommend the short rib sandwich. I only got to eat a quarter of mine as the kiddos loved it and shared with me. The Mexican sweet corn was also a huge hit! The Cheesecake flight and dessert bars were fun and delicious. It is a bit loud , but since we had kids with us, that was not a bad thing. Although they were extremely well behaved. All in all a fun Friday dinner. We will definitely be back. Oh wait.... the beverages also were great! We ordered beer, a mixed cocktail and 2 lemonade flights. All were great!

    The service was awesome! We were greeted upon arrival, and the process was explained to us. All of the staff worked together as a team-they were very attentive, we got our food & drinks quickly after they were ordered, and everything was correct. I loved the passionfruit margarita and the sangria on tap. The buffalo chicken dip was creamy and the pita chips were perfectly crisp. My shrimp nachos were loaded with toppings. I'm not a fan of sour cream, but the lime crema was amazing! The lime flavor was present, but not overpowering. I definitely plan on returning soon! Sidenote: Our reservation was for 6:00pm. I expected parking to be difficult, but there were plenty of nearby parking spaces available.
