We had dinner on Thanksgiving and it was well organized. We could have had a Turkey dinner but we opted for the menu. I had the steak fajitas and they were delicious. I was impressed at how organized and quickly our meal came out. BUSY...yes! But all good.

I was in Detroit for a business trip and met a local relative at Tap for dinner. My overall rating of "fair" took into consideration that the food and service were both very good; however, I did not know that the restaurant would receiving lots of second hand smoke wafting from the open casino areas. We have very strict public smoking restrictions in CO and, because I have asthma (likely due to a parent who chain-smoked when I was young), we had to cut our dinner visit shorter than hoped because my lungs began crackling and my head began pounding before too long. Very disappointing and unhealthy dining atmosphere.

it was a nice visit... staff was friendly. They were having trouble with the beer I wanted but the server made a great suggestion as a replacement.

My husband & I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The power went out in the middle of our dining experience but the staff handled the situation very professionally. Our server Jodi was great!

We visited Taps, for Mother’s Day they seated us right away, no long wait. All the food was good with exception of my rib eye steak was over cooked.

Our waitress was nice at first then was rude beyond belief. Food was forgotten. Tip should never we already added . And you should be able to do separate checks no matter how many people. Food was cold and dry.

I've dined at TAP before and have had very good experiences-but this week was not one of those good experiences. The burger I ordered (the more expensive one) tasted like it had been boiled and then microwaved-it had a bad taste to it. I told the waiter (which I am not one that ever sends back food) and he was kind enough to bring me something else--the Philly. The Philly was much better. Otherwise, I like TAP and the atmosphere. *TAP in the MGM in Vegas-food is much better.

My husband and I had reservations for 8:30pm. After we were seated we watched as 4 servers waited on other tables around us. We waited over 15 minutes before a server came to our table. I noticed that the gentleman who was working at the front entrance noticed that we were just sitting there looking around. I observed him leave his position. Afterwards a server came to our table and she was very apologetic.
My husband David Cowell paid for our dinner with his express comps. My food was great. His Shrimp Linguine was not. Our server was very professional.

I made a reservation for three people. Upon arrival, we were seated and sat there for about 20 minutes. Nobody acknowledged that we were there, even to say they were busy and would be back. It was also very smoky, since it's right next to the casino show floor.

We finally went to the bar and placed a to-go order. The server at the bar was great, and the hostess who sat us was friendly, but the experience was poor.

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.
