I love this place, the food is always good and the service is always great. I've never had a bad experience here. Every time I'm in Virginia Beach - I make a definite plan to come here!

Went to this place for Valentine's Day. Everything was wonderful. We loved the live band that played. The food was delicious. They had a red rose waiting for everyone who made a reservation. It was just great. I will definitely be coming back and I would recommend this place. The only thing *ONLY* thing I would complain about is that I thought when we first walked in that I could smell cigarettes - but it might have just been people out side. This place is very classy! Love love love it! We brought our infant daughter. The staff was very nice about everything. They brought her out a booster seat to sit in. They don't have car seat holders, but that was not an issue for us. Place was a tad bit on the expensive for MY taste but you get what you pay for. It was an amazing Valentine's day dinner that we won't forget.

Bottom line: LOVED IT! and we plan on going back!

Five of us enjoyed a birthday dinner meal with beer. Our food was delicious and the beer choice excellent. Our waiter was just average, referring to us as " you guys" and neglecting to refill our water glasses until after our meal. This was a particular problem for the one diner who was drinking Only water with the meal.

I have had several lunches and now one dinner at Tapped. I have never been disappointed in either the food, drink, or service.

We tried this place for the first time because of the proximity of their location to our neighborhood. (Hilltop) Now having been there, I would not hesitate to travel to Norfolk to get the same experience. Our server was so knowledgeable and pleasant. His suggestions were spot on. The food was great. We both ordered a seafood selection and they were both done perfectly. The fish was so fresh and moist. We never get dessert, however, since everything was so good, we opted to split the bread pudding dessert. Next time I will get my own, and forget about sharing.
All in all a really great find!

I am a steak lover, and its hard to find a good steak unless I cook it, but their Cajun Rib eye was absolutely the best one I have ever had.

Good atmosphere but our server was terrible. He didn't know the menu. I had the mahi mahi topped with crab. My fish had a huge bloodline in it and I couldn't eat much of it. The server never came by for me to show it until after I had finished my meal. He didn't seem to know what it was or care. The rest of my meal was just rice And briccolini which were fine. For the price I paid I was very disappointed.

Great location, but we had normal bar food that was just ok and not exciting. Especially considering the great location near the beach. I would not go again.

Make no mistake about it - this is a Pub that serves Pub Grub. Good beer. Fair prices. Stay away from the ambitious side of the menu.

First timer and was very impressed with dinner. Our server was exceptional! Very personable, helpful, and attentive. The beer choices were numerous with a very good menu that explained them well. Very varied menu. All four of has had different entrees from fish, to steak, to salads. They staff even moved us from the table by the door where the cold was intruding on our experience. Will go again.
