Have been here several times. Always good food. Great selection of always good craft beer (enjoyed the Yuengling Hershey Chocolate Porter on tap ). Service was good , haven’t had a bad experience. Specials are always good.

Generally this is our go-to local restaurant. This last visit wasn't the norm. French onion soup came out completely charred, which after over 5 minutes later we flagged the waitress down & asked to get a replacement, and the server obliged but said nothing about it. We were surprised she would serve something so obviously inedible. I ordered the TG burger, and I love mushrooms but this tasted distinctly like truffle which I don't like at all, so I didn't eat it. Maybe it was my imagination, but if there is truffle anything on the burger, the menu should say so. Service was pretty spotty this time, the waitress didn't stop by until well after our meal was over. We often have Harlan as our server, and he's fantastic. Overall we love Tap House and we're hoping this was a one-time bad experience.
We like the menu change but hope they will bring back the giant pretzel (regular, not onion), calamari, and the delicious pork chop with sausage dish.

Wonderful as usual! Our only complaint is that it was hot in the room. We were a party of 20 and the only ones in the room. We asked to turn the A/C on/up but we never felt it get any cooler.

As a beer lover, Taphouse was recommended to my husband and me. Todd, the bartender was helpful, welcoming and attentive. When I told him my beer likes, Todd made excellent recommendations which I totally loved. The food was excellent and the service was superb. We will definitely be returning on our next visit to New Jersey.

We ordered the Loaded Nachos

corn tortilla chips, jack cheese, black olives, jalapeño pico de gallo, sour cream (add bbq pork, chicken or turkey chili +$3; add guacamole +$2)

There was virtually NO CHEESE in this entire dish. We had to request sour cream. We sent it back and told them to add cheese. This was a lost cause. Whoever the cook was should be fired and get a different vocation. The manager came over but hell - - we really were finished with the TapHouse.

Food was really tasty, service was fine...but with our reservation put in the back room, farthest table with poor /to non-existing air conditioning.
Mentioned on way out/was told they were aware of “trouble with the air conditioning.”

First time here and will definitely return. Food was pretty good. Apps were better than entrees. The Bavarian pretzel was amazing. Their beer list is very comprehensive. And Bella was our server and she was just great!

We don't come here often but the food is really good and reasonably priced. My only concern is that the service was very slow. Im not blaming the waitress; she looked very busy. It took about an hour to recieve our food, we had to keep asking for refills and after dinner, we had to ask for our check.

Food is good and friendly wait staff. Need to stop removing their best sellers from menu. Bring back the FISH N CHIPS! You don't remove an item that is a pain to prepare if it still makes you money by repeatedly selling out.

We have dined at Taphouse several times. I will start with the positive. The food is good. However, we had the worst experience my husband and I have ever had in any restaurant. We sat for 15 minutes before the server came to our table. He took our drink order and left. He came back 10 minutes later to take our order. We explained we'd prefer enjoying our drink before we order, however we still didn't have our drinks. He left, came back 5 minutes later to take our order again. Still no drinks. He says oh sorry it slipped my mind. He leaves, comes back and gives us our drinks and takes our order. He never returns and a half hour later, we see him and ask where our appetizers were. He looks at me and says we're very busy and I need to be patient. He actually scolded me!! I told him he was being quite rude and I as a customer didn't need to be patient!! I asked for a manager. We are now in the restaurant well over an hour with no food. The manager came over and was very nice, though I told him he should have come over long before. I told him that our server was in the wrong business , as he was not only totally unorganized but rude too. Our apps came cold, had to be sent back to reheat, then we got our dinner and it was fine. The manager comped our entire bill, which he should have, and we left. We were there almost 2 hours. This is not fine dining. It's a step above fast food. If they don't get their act together, they will not last. This is the worst review I've ever given, but it was truly deserved!

A comfortable atmosphere, nice craft beer rotation and the friendliest bartenders are some of the reasons that my wife and I make this our regular stop. Chef Bryan does an amazing job with the food, best Caesar's salad and French onion soup you'll find. We have had several parties there, the management and staff worked hard to make the events a success. Everyone raved about the food, my personal favorite is the pistachio encrusted salmon but the crab cakes, steaks and burgers are also winners.
The Tap house a local gem!
