The food is always good here. The services is horrible! We sat for close to 10 minutes before our server came over to us. Once we placed our order it was brought out by another staff member, he never came back to check on us, I had to flag him down for the bill and he took over 10 minutes to bring our change. If you can get the service to be equal to the good food this would be an awesome restaurant. Our server just didn't care!

Very poor service. Tap Room wasn't busy but we still had to wait a considerable amount of time for our server. Food was average and over priced. Much better value for your dollar if you know your way around downtown and you want a good meal. If you're hooked on gambling and you don't want to leave the casino, then the Tap Room would probably work for you.

VERY good spot for a drink / casual dinner. The food is definitely above average, the service is excellent, and the price points are incredibly reasonable for what you get. If you are looking for a solid quick meal at the MGM without spending Wolfgang prices, this is an excellent choice. Also, TVs everywhere for watching ballgames and the beer list is rock solid.

Absolutely the slowest service possible. Took 5 businesses guest and we found t get drinks served. Took 15 minutes just to greet us once seated and getting drinks took easily 15 minutes each trip! The staff seemed to work with absolutely no sense of urgency. The apps were good, but I will never entertain guest at TAP again. By the way, they weren’t even that busy. Very disappointing.

We were seated at 6:00 and immediately told that the restaurant was out of the Thanksgiving special. We were all very disappointed. I had even checked with the hostess several days before to be sure they would have the special as they had the previous year. I would have thought they would have planned better for the dinner seating.

Server was very good. Pizza was delicious as usual but not as hot as it could have been. The Detroit style pizza makes Chicago pizza taste like Tombstone pizza.

It was a disappointing experience for our Anniversary & pretty expensive for not having any drinks or dessert. The host wished us a Happy Anniversary, but the waitress never said anything even after we said we were celebrating. The waitress continued to come ask if we were ready to order even though we clearly we're looking at the menu until I told her we weren't ready & that I would wave her over when ready. Also We asked for a minor exception from the waitress due to an allergy,but she said they couldn't accommodate without even talking to the kitchen first. We ended up ordering the ribs which had nice flavor but were a bit spicy. When we left my husband & I both said " we've had better". Made a special trip Downtown to try out but wouldn't again.

We went for mother’s Day / it was a buffet which was fine , but we were almost done with our breakfast before our coffee and water showed up..it wasn’t busy so not sure why the service was so slow. I have been here for lunch and service was great ..so I like tap but this last experience was just poor service

When this restaurant first opened the staff was well trained and great. Now it is terrible. We were seated quickly and sat for over 10 minutes before any waitstaff stopped at our table despite several walking right past and even looking directly at us. After our meal and we had to again wait for quite a while for our server to get us our check, it was wrong as we were charged for an extra meal which we did not order. As we like to visit the casino and have dinner prior to a sporting event we are strongly considering visiting other venues.
The food was good as always, although one was served incorrectly but was quickly corrected.

This was my first time dining at Taps after watching the commercials and billboards. I am not a gambler so my effort to dine there yielded a two-week reservation through Open Table so I could be sure of the date and time for a birthday dinner.
The service was great and the food was okay. The steak was not as tender as anticipated but the salon was great. However, the biggest issue was the smell from a sewer or toilet problem. One's NOSE is attached to one's TASTE BUDS... so the food was not as delectable as it could have been. Toward the end of the hour, someone finally decided to turn on the air to allow the smell to dissipate so when the bread pudding came it was divine.

One whole. Table didn't get dinner and didn't tell us that they are all backed up and dinner was going to be late. We had hockey tickets. Also we made open table reservations because they people on the phone were not able to work out how to handle a table of 12....

We were seated in a new area in the back of TAPS that was great for a Work Group Gathering. We had 9. There was one other large group seated in the same seating area. It offered much more privacy for conversation that the other more public areas of the restaurant.

My cousin and I attended the Phil Phillips free jam session and it was amazing the seating was great our 1st server was wonderful I'm mad I don't know her name but she had dark brown hair in a ponytail, she was great. We had the high table next to the doors of your banquet area. I will definitely be back and tell everyone I know about you.
