All of the food was very tasteful and fresh. Portions size isn't really big but the quality of the food is good. The cocktail drinks were superb as well.

Good food but initial reception poor. Nearly got hit by a table being moved into the dining room. Had mentioned it was a birthday celebration on the online reservation. This was not acknowledged

My experience was disappointing. First, the noise level is extremely loud. Part of the ceiling and walls are brick and the noise bounces all around. You had to speak in a loud voice to be heard at the same table. The decor is very nice but just too large and open to limit the noise level. The appetizers were very good. Chicken wings were spicy and well done. Entrees were not as good. Hamburger was small and on an over sized doughy bun. French fries were over done and tasteless. The onion rings were greasy and very heavy. Pork was ok but bland. It took a while to get the car from the parking attendants. The lot is small and there is limited space to maneuver. The guys were working hard but the lot is tough to manage. I obviously had a poorer experience than most dinners. The place was very busy, so my experience may be the exception.

We decided to go back after a bad experience two years ago and give it another chance. I saw scotch egg on the menu and always wanted to try one for years. I was very disappointed to find a cut open hard boiled egg when every time I've seen it on tv, it's suppose to be a runny yolk when it is cut into.
My wife's crap cake sandwich smelt fishy. My burger was good. No reason to go back.

Food was good and tasty. The service was fairly quick. However, our desert, a bread pudding, was inconsistently warm. We had cold and warm bites - not good.

My grown children took me out for Mothers Day dinner early and they asked me to choose the place. I went on Open table searching for restaurants by my daughter and son in law and this restaurant was one of the choices.
The food was very good as was the service. I would definitely go back.

Been a long time customer but have not been in a while and I have to say, it is gotten much better. It has always been my go to for a good burger and a beer but now the menu is so much more diverse and the food was amazing! We were extremely impressed with the changes. Service was on point with our server being friendly and knowledgeable about all the new items. We are definitely putting Taphouse in our rotation more frequently!

not as great as past experiences, but still enjoyable. They appeared to be short staffed so service was a bit spotty. Our server was overly attentive when we got there, even coming back to the table with tastes of different beers she thought we'd like. After she took our order, however, she disappeared until giving us the check. Nachos were yummy as always, as was beet salad and crab cake sandwich. My husband said his rib-eye sandwich was not as good as before.

I really enjoyed the salmon entrée on the regular menu. There was also a salmon special for that night and I appreciated the candor of our server when I told her I was between the two salmon dishes and she recommended one over the other. Her honesty was greatly appreciated

The waitress was absolutely delightful. She took care of us very well. However, the steak frites was just awful. Looked like it had been sitting for a while. I ate a couple pieces against my better judgement, but I was very hungry. I didn't make it much further. I didn't complain. Just paid my bill and left. But I would never go back.

I decided to take my Wife to the Taphouse Grille for her Birthday. We’d never been before but had heard it was nice from friends. From the moment we walked in, we were impressed with the nice, open atmosphere and homey feel. I think it would be equally suitable for a business lunch, a family dinner or a sports viewing get together (loved all the big screen TVs). The menu selection was impressive and we’ll definitely go again to try some of the other items. The food portions were very generous and the quality was outstanding. I had the Beer Bratwurst and my wife had the Short-Rib Tacos; both would certainly be do-overs. For dessert the Creme Brulee was Amazing – Everything Was Very Tasty!! …and to top it all off, the prices were surprisingly reasonable. We’ll definitely be back again! Thanks, Taphouse Grille!
